And now I bring you a preggy update! 28-31 Weeks
How Far Along: 31 weeks as of yesterday! Last week of my 7 month! Then I’ll be 8 months preg. Whoa. Scary.
Size of Baby: Georgia is the size of a pineapple now! My precious pineapple! She is about 16 inches long and weighs about 3.5 pounds! Holy cow my baby girl’s a growin!
Maternity Clothes: Ummmm I love them. I love my jean shorts and cute maternity t’s. I still rock some non-maternity stuff like maxi dresses and flowy tops. But when it comes to bottoms. It’s workout clothes or my bump-friendly shorts. I am super excited to wear this on Friday for my maternity photos!
Stretch Marks: None yet. Coconut oil and BioOil nightly with some Burt’s Bees Tummy Butter mixed in during the day are still my weapons of choice. But man am I itchy!!!
Sleep: Sleeping is a little harder these days. I wake up lots, either to go to the bathroom, reposition or walk off a cramp. I’ve been having the words cramps in my calves and my feet! Any suggestions from you mamas would be great! I drink tons of water every day (3 liters) and eat healthy for the most part so I’m not too sure what is going on!
Best Moment of the Week/Past Month: Well as of late we are on a two-week doctor schedule so that means we get to hear baby’s heartbeat lots more! And I loooove it! We also had our Lamaze class this past Saturday and that was pretty amazing. I’m a huge planner and it just made me feel more organized and prepared. And can we talk about how “into” it my husband was? I die. Just precious.
Movement: Matt and I are convinced that we are growing a baby bunny, a baby kangaroo or a professional break-dancer. She moves like crazy!! ALL THE TIME. No sweet needed. I actually have been watching my sweets a bit more lately because she does move so much and when she’s on a sugar high – she uses my ribs and bladder as punching bags. When we were at our check-up last week, my doctor asked me if I had eaten a candy bar that day. I just laughed and said nope, but I had a banana an hour ago. And he said, “man, can’t imagine what’d she’d do with a candy bar.” So little bunny/kangaroo/break-dancer – we love you and your little squirms!
Gender: Still a baby girl :)
Belly Button In or Out: Still in… but wondering if it’s gonna make it’s way out soon?
Wedding Ring on or Off: On and still pretty lose thankfully. Not sure if I should keep it on or take it off just in case? Thoughts?
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Still feeling so blessed to say no!
What I Miss: I. NEED. WINE. Red Wine. Preferably a pinot noir or a blend. Not for the buzz, for the taste. I’ve been piling my stash higher and higher with shipments from out wine club and can’t wait to bust out a bottle after baby girl arrives
What I am Looking Forward to: SO MUCH! My showers kick off this weekend and my sissy and sissy-in-law are throwing me one on Saturday! And Friday evening Matt and I have our maternity shots! EEEEEEEEEEEEEK. So much fun stuff.
Labor Signs: Nope thank goodness. Getting a little paranoid about that though.
Nursery: I switched up her plan a bit. Oooops. But we have furniture and it is slowly coming together! I’m hoping to do her nursery reveal in the next few weeks. We will see how much I get done.
Emotions: So excited! I want to meet her so bad. I want to hold her. And I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that my “to-do” lists will be here after she arrives no matter what. So hurry up baby girl! But not really, because I want you to put on some weight and keep growing before you enter my arms. K thanks!
