8 Months & 0 Days!

Today was my 33 week appointment, which I love having on or after my new month! It gives me a sense of satisfaction knowing that she is that much bigger inside of me, and growing that much more healthier and stronger due to us having an amazing pregnancy...(knock on wood) so far!

My Dr. was running a little late today because one of her other patients, who was pregnant with twins, went into labor during her appointment! How exciting right?! Well I didn't mind the wait because this was an appointment that I had scheduled by accident on a work day, so the longer the wait, the longer until I have to go back to work!

During my entire pregnancy, I have been classified as a low-risk pregnancy (thank goodness). However, it never seems to fail for me to worry that something could change any minute, so I take each day one at a time. This appointment was a success I would have to say though, unlike my last! Last month I gained 10 lbs. in one month!! Hello yummy Thanksgiving dinner! I obviously needed a reality check. Anyways...this month I made sure to make more healthier food choices and it turns out that it did pay off! A total of 3.5 lbs. were gained in the past month! Making my total weight gain 28 lbs.!! Oh yeah, I am super proud of myself because I know that my baby girl is also eating a lot healthier! I made it through Christmas and the new years without gaining 10 lbs. again!

Other than that, our little Aleena is right on schedule! Only 7 more weeks until we get to meet her, and 7 more weeks (hopefully) until we decide on her middle name! Its a toss up between:
Aleena Jade Herrera
Aleena Maddison Herrera

I love them both personally, but Fernando keeps changing his mind on which one he loves the best! Hopefully we will figure this tough cookie out soon enough!

( Sorry if its a little too revealing, but I love my full belly picture this month!)

I love reading about what's going on. I usually don't comment because on of the apps I read your blog through gives me trouble posting my comment but I'm just using Safari now so I could write this to you. I love you so much and cannot wait till you and Fernando can meet your beautiful creation. :) I love you sis.
