Baby #3- 32 Weeks

So I have been super slack about updating my pregnancy lately. We moved last month, and so I have been consumed with setting up our new house while still trying to take it somewhat easy during this pregnancy. 

I can't believe I only have a few more weeks until our baby boy is here. I spoke with my doctor and she is willing to induce me again (I've had two successful inductions already). So unless he comes early on his own, he will be here either September 10th or 11th. 

So far, this has been my easiest pregnancy of the three. I have had very few annoyances like I had with the other two. But truthfully, with chasing around a 13 month old and 4 year old I haven't really had time to even think about being pregnant. I did have a little scare today because my blood pressure dropped lower than normal. We were getting ready for church this morning and I had several dizzy spells and couldn't catch my breath, which has never happened before. Kevin went ahead and took Blakely to church, and Rowan and I stayed home and rested. I felt somewhat better as the morning went on but was still concerned at how low my blood pressure was. I called the doctor a few times and she told me that my blood pressure is actually at its lowest during this part of my pregnancy. Kevin and I were ready to head to the hospital if needed. But thankfully the doctor wasn't concerned and just told me to take it easy for the rest of the day. As the day progressed, I felt much better and am realizing that I may need to slow down for the next 6 weeks.

Maternity Clothes: Absolutely! But I can still wear some of my pre-maternity workout shorts so I've been wearing them regularly since it's summer and they keep me really cool. 
Sleep: Really well. I have to switch sides several times a night but I think this is the best I've ever slept this far along in a pregnancy. 
Workouts: I'm still walking but not much. However that is mainly due to how hot it is outside.
