33 Week update...

You read that right... 33 weeks I am.
Crazy huh? It's hard to believe that little baby Cayden will be here in no time.
I've been going through that nesting phase, where I rearrange our apartment a million in a half times to get ready for the baby. I've set everything up and organized all of our baby stuff about 12 different times.
Yes, it's driving my husband crazy. The other night, for example, I made him get off the xbox and help me move our bed to a different place so that I could put Cayden's things in our room (:
He was thrilled... not.

Anyways, baby update...

Our little booger is still measuring small.
We had an extra ultrasound done to check on him.
Dr. says that he went from the 51st percentile to the 42nd (50th is normal)
She said they don't typically start to worry until babies are near the 10th/
She explained to me that some people just make small babies and that's the category I fall in to.

I had an episode a few weeks ago where my heart rate shot up really high.
Then my blood pressure dropped, I felt like I was going to throw up then pass out.
Then I broke out into a cold sweat.
Thanks to that, my Doc has me taking two iron pills a day.
ewh. They are really bothering my stomach.

Cayden Troy is very.. and i mean VERY active.
Which as much as I want to complain about, I can't.
It's nice to know that he is doing okay in there (:
We have decided that he is going to be a complete daddy's boy.
Every morning when Chris gets up for work, So does Cayden.
He kicks like crazy, like he is upset that daddy is leaving.

On another note, our baby necessity shopping is almost to an end.
We still need to get a breast pump and I really want to get a boppy.
I need to get a swing or bouncer seat and a baby monitor.
I might buy a few more things of lotion and powder.
Other than that, we seem to have everything (:

Stroller and infant carseat... Check

Awesome play pen/bassenet/changing table... Check

Convertable carseat... Check

Adorable bedroom theme... Check

Here is my dilemma, we got both of these at our baby showers.
Which one is better?!

I will gladly take any Mommy tips or advice.
Same goes with Labor.
I'm a little nervous.
