32 weeks

And the crib saga continues this week. The new crib came in, so we tried to put it together over the weekend... everything went together fine, except one screw was stripped (which Ryan was able to fix) and one wouldn't screw in all the way (which he wasn't able to fix). So now we have to figure out if we can live with the one screw either sticking out a bit, or taking it out and just not having the screw in there at all, or if we're going to try to return it and go for crib #3.

This week also marked our twelfth and final childbirth class - it's going to feel weird not to see our instructor and the other couples every week anymore. And now we have about two months left on our own, so hopefully we'll finally finish the last few pages in the workbook that we never got around to before and we'll keep up on the exercises and relaxation practice. I also borrowed a whole bunch of books from our doula, so maybe I can try to get through all of those in the next couple of months too :)

I spoke too soon the other week when I was patting myself on the back for not getting too tired now that I'm in third trimester... it was just biding its time and ended up coming back full force this week. So the extreme fatigue is back and afternoons are especially painful at work now to try to stay awake. And there's no point in napping - I've found that no matter what time in the day I take a nap (let alone at 6pm when I get home from work), I have a lot of problems falling asleep at night. Then that's just compounded on top of the issues I have staying asleep, so it doesn't really seem worth it to try to nap too. And the increased appetite is also back again, so it looks like I may need to add another snack into my eating schedule since my stomach starts growling within an hour or two after nearly every meal now.
