Do people still read blogs? Lately i've felt like the blogosphere has moved straight to instagram and snapchat and as if you haven't already noticed, I haven't been blogging much at all.
Please let me know if you're still into the occasional post on the blog, because I love creating them, and as long as you're reading, i'll keep writing!!
If you follow me on snap or instagram, you know the nursery is full steam ahead, we're officially demoing our kitchen and living through a renovation just weeks before baby girl is due, and losing our minds a little every day. :) Wait, that might just be me.
I keep saying i'm going to be better about documenting everything going on, but with this giant belly, and a toddler who never slows down my camera always seems so far out of reach!
The past few weeks have been eventful, so lets just jump into the bumpdate!
How far along? 33 weeks!
Total weight gain: I've only gained about 15 pounds so far this pregnancy, which is exactly the opposite of how I was with Sawyer. I literally PACKED ON the pounds towards the end with him! I was actually down a few pounds at my doctors appointment on Wednesday because I came down with an awful stomach bug and wasn't able to eat for about 3 days. I'm so glad to be over that one!
Maternity clothes? We're totally in "everything is getting too small" territory. The other night we were going to head out on a walk to see my parents, but all of my pants that fit were in the dryer so I refused to go, Jake made me wear his man sweats and it killed my soul a little bit how well they fit! I guess i'm back to sharing clothes with my husband.
Stretch marks? I've gotten a few new ones on the front of my belly, but not too many extra this time around. I am still very stretch marked out from my first pregnancy, so although not many new ones are popping in, i'm still covered.
Best moment this week: This week was such a doozy! We just got hit with one thing after another. I would say that almost wrapping up the nursery has totally been a highlight, though. Everything is so organized and i'm feeling like we're slowly but surely moving into "prepared" territory. I want to get a start on packing the hospital bag this weekend, and work is starting to slow down as most of my projects are being handed off for my leave.
Miss Anything? Not peeing my pants. You guys, i've basically had a cough this entire pregnancy because of my horrendous acid reflux. Every time I have a coughing fit, I pee my pants. I cried last weekend because it meant I had to go upstairs and change. It sounds comical, but I promise it is THE most annoying thing in the entire world! I can't WAIT to have normal bladder function again!
Movement: Like MAD! We got the coolest video of her trying to escape my body the other night. Pregnancy is so rough on me but that is without a doubt something I will miss. There is nothing like watching your belly move and contort because there is an actual human being inside of you.
Food cravings: Frosties and French Fries from Wendy's. I could literally eat this every.single.day. Have you ever tried that combo? The cold + hot and sweet + salty is something that can't be matched.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I mentioned the stomach bug I had which was making me literally exorcism vomit every single thing I consumed. It was hell. But i'm glad to report we're back to normal and nothing is sounding too gross!
Gender: Still a little lady!
Labor Signs: Sometimes my BH contractions are so strong they take my breath away. I've literally had to sit and breath through a few of them in the last few weeks. It makes me feel convinced she is going to come early, but lord knows I have an iron clad uterus and she will probably stay put forever!
Belly Button in or out? Umbilical Hernia = insane belly button.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm still pretty moody and a little mean. It doesn't take much to completely make me lose my mind, and it's the strangest thing because I can be so angry at Jake I want to rip out his throat, all while logically knowing how insane I am being. Pregnancy hormones are weird, ya'll.
Looking forward to: My sweet family is throwing baby and I a Sprinkle tomorrow and I can't WAIT! We didn't have a shower with family when I was pregnant with Sawyer, although my team at work did throw us a pretty sweet surprise shower. I'm excited for all things girl, and to eat chocolate covered strawberries and drink sherbet punch with my family and best friends. I'm super annoyed that rain is in the forecast, but maybe we'll get lucky and it will be pushed out a day! Make sure you follow along on Snap and Insta to see how the whole shower comes together!
Here a few highlights of the last few weeks:
So you'll have to excuse the low quality of these iphone photos, but I did want to share a sneak peak into our little ladies' side of the nursery. Her crib came in yesterday, along with her monogram, and I just feel like its the sweetest girliest little spot!
I also had the most magical moment the other day when my little tornado crawled right up on his mama and fell asleep cuddling his baby sister. It was heaven. I had to pee so bad but you couldn't have pried me off that spot on the couch!!
And finally, we took Maternity photos with our gal, Jessica Robinson, last weekend, and i'm DYING over the sneak peaks. Sawyer was a complete nightmare, I won't lie. It will be a miracle if we have any happy photos of him at all, but she worked magic as usual and I can't wait to see the rest! For now, here is my sweet pup snugglin' up on mama.
Next week i'll share our baby shower and I also have an embarrassing post coming up all about the 19 bags we brought to the hospital our first time around, and how things are definitely downsizing for this little one ;)
Have a great weekend, friends!
Until Next Time,
