36 weeks!

 just a little 36 weeks update & a few pictures!



how far along? 36 weeks!

maternity clothes: yes.
 

sleep: more & more uncomfortable.

best moment this week: hearing the heartbeat is always a good moment & enjoying some cooler weather this week was a nice break for my pregnant body!

movement: lots & lots of movement!! anytime i have an appointment i always get comments on how active she is.

food cravings: still ice cream!

food aversions: nothing major, but maybe leftovers…sometimes.

have you started to show yet? yes.

gender: girl.

labor signs: nothing too exciting.

belly button in or out? still in.  

wedding rings on or off?
on.

happy or moody most of the time: happy most of the time! it’s funny how the answer to this question seems to change so often.
 

milestones: appointments every week! it’s crazy to think we’re already to this point. 

name picked out? yes.  

what I miss: never having to contemplate if i should pick something up. nowadays i always wonder if it’s worth bending over, which also has made me realize how much i drop stuff!

looking forward to: a little babymoon this weekend!

and a little rambling from a pregnant woman:
  • this may be my last bump update post! we’ll see! the next one would be scheduled for 40 weeks & if i’m still pregnant then i don’t know if i’ll feel up to it.
  •  my sister had her baby on june 15th so it would be really special & kind of neat if mabel was born july 15th ... so that’s what i am hoping, but not getting my hopes up at the same time. haha. i’m trying to mentally prepare to go late.
  • jeremy & i will have been married an entire year on monday! i’ve been thinking about that this week & it seems so, so crazy that it has been almost 365 days! there is no logic in this statement at all, but i’m gonna state it anyway: married life seems to have flown by, but this pregnancy has gone so slow. yeah, that makes no sense. haha.
  • speaking of time, the last 4 weeks since my 32 week update have actually gone by super-fast compared to the rest of this pregnancy. i have a feeling the next 4 weeks will go by at a snail’s pace, especially when i see so many other people having their babies! 
alright, enough of random ramblings!

baby shower time!

here are few fun pictures from my baby shower which took place about a month ago. i'm so thankful for my mom & sisters who worked so hard to put it together! they made everything including the ice cream garland & the onesie cookies AND it all looked fabulous!! the best part (for me) was they decorated based on mabel's room (black, white, green, pink, & ice cream themed) so i was able to keep some of the awesome decor to incorporate in her little part of the house. yay!




thank you, fam, for all your hard work! and thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate!

32 weeks!


32 weeks & so much has changed since my last bump update! more kicks, more belly, more trips to the doctor, more trips to the bathroom, more tums, more swelling, more heat flashes...
BUT it has also brought more smiles feeling the life inside of me so frequently, more joy knowing that we will get to meet our daughter soon, & more excitement at the thought of being parents. we feel so blessed & thankful. 
 question time!

how far along? 32 weeks.

maternity clothes: yes.
 

sleep: just okay.

best moment this week: getting the baby's closet & most of her other stuff organized.

movement: yes! every day now AND since my last bump update at 28 weeks i’m happy to report that jeremy has felt our baby kick!! just for my own reference this happened around 30 weeks.

food cravings: ice cream!

food aversions: nothing comes to mind.

have you started to show yet? yes.

gender: girl.

labor signs: nope.

belly button in or out? kinda in? it looks...different.

wedding rings on or off?
on.

happy or moody most of the time: still feel hormonal, but not as much of a cry baby as last time i checked in on here.
 

milestones: a stranger asking me about my pregnancy!!! i’ve been waiting for this milestone because i’m taking it to mean that i officially look pregnant. haha.

name picked out? yes.  

what I miss: eating without heartburn.

looking forward to:  july!
