37 Weeks

16 Jan

How far along? 37 Weeks (and 4 days)
Total weight gain/loss: 3.8 pounds in 9 months and 3 weeks…. I finally did it! 🙂
Maternity clothes? On and off still
Best moment this week: Finally realizing that I get to meet her in less than a MONTH! DO YOU SEE THIS COUNTDOWN ON THE RIGHT SIDE??? IT SAYS 17 DAYS!!! WHAT????!!!! It will be single digits next week.  INSANE.
Movement: NO ROOM.  It seems that she favors my right side, lots of kicking and poking.  Sometimes, usually during the evening, I feel like she is going to “fall out.”  It’s a strange/uncomfortable sensation.  Moms- anyone else experience that?
Food cravings: Banana cream pie.
Gender: Girliest of girly baby Hokie fans 🙂
Labor Signs: Between 1-2.5 cm dilated! But that could last for months…. lots of uncomfortable Braxton Hicks- they are a strange feeling too.
Stretch marks? Yep….speaking of stretch marks…convo with the husband
Me: I have stretch marks now….do you still like me just as much?
Jeff: No offense babe- but you’ve had stretch marks since I’ve known you
What I miss: Sushi. Not feeling like a beached whale.

What I am looking forward to: The best is yet to come 🙂
Weekly Wisdom: Always fight for what you believe in! 🙂
Milestones:  Nursery is ready! The crib has sheets on it.  The stroller is put together.  Car seat is in. Changing pad is up.  Dresser is put together…we are ready!!!

Maternity clothes? Well today I have on size 6 Talbot’s dress pants. WOOHOO!! However- I did buy my first “complete” maternity outfit on Tuesday…and I’m not one to brag but it is BANGIN’. C’mon- PINK JEGGINGS!!!! Here’s a peek:

Best moment this week: Finally purchased paint for the nursery- it’s a shade of gray- by Olympic- Secret Passage (Zero VOC & low odor!)
Movement: Everywhere….she sure is a looooong baby & takes up a lot of room

Labor Signs: NONE!
Stretch marks? Sure.  Thankful for everyone one of them!
What I miss: Having energy.  Having nice skin.  WARM WEATHER.
What I am looking forward to: Staying home from work with KAP 🙂
Weekly Wisdom: It’s slightly harder to shop ALL day when (almost) 8.5 months pregnant….so when you get tired- rest! (and then start again…..) Also- don’t forget to HYDRATE & NOURISH that baby!
Milestones:  Still wearing non-preggo pants (is that a milestone?:))

Happy Saturday!


30 Weeks

27 Nov




How far along? 30 weeks (and 1 day)
Total weight gain/loss: No more weight loss & no weight gain.  I am the EXACT same as two weeks ago.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to be one of those that wakes up two weeks from now about 30 pounds heavier and with NO clothes that fit.
Maternity clothes? Off and On. I can still wear regular clothes 🙂
Best moment this week:
Movement: oh hey future Olympic gymnast- doing all your somersaults….and stuff.
Food cravings: I’m not sure.  Anything that tastes good!
Gender: Still all PINK AND GIRLY!
Labor Signs: NO THANKS!!!
Stretch marks? Itty bitty pink ones.  Yes.  I just admitted that.  On the world wide web.  Admittance is the first step of no denial right?
What I miss: WARM WEATHER!!! Does it have to do with being preggo?
What I am looking forward to: WARM WEATHER! Getting the nursery finally all set up
Weekly Wisdom: I am not wise….
Milestones:  Getting to 30 weeks?  I’m not sure.  Finally deciding on a crib! Because everything needs to be matchy matchy…..


29 Weeks

21 Nov

How far along? 29 weeks (and 6 days technically)
Total weight gain/loss: Still no weight gain according to my dr appointment 2 weeks ago- but I go back tomorrow.  So if I could be a good blogger and blog on time….we will see
Maternity clothes? Not getting any smaller….but running out of clothes in my rotation.
Best moment this week: Buying my first “real” baby items! Babies R US is having B1G1F on Tommee Tippee items!!!
Movement: ALL. THE. TIME.  I’m positive she DOESN’T sleep. EVER.
Food cravings: Pizza- all day long….except I could do without the heart burn that comes with it. Nothing else out of the ordinary though.
Gender: PINK.
Labor Signs: None still. GOOD! 🙂
Stretch marks? Slight…….
What I miss: No heartburn.  Winter jackets that fit.  Hair that behaves.
What I am looking forward to: Stuffing my face over the holidays and not having to worry.  Just kidding.  I don’t want to pop.
Weekly Wisdom: When you’re body tells you to take it easy…take it easy! You know best.   Don’t try to push yourself.
Milestones: Nothing significant really- just enjoying these last few months of being preggo! 🙂

Annnnnnnddddddd here are some OVERDUE pictures!

Movement: NON. STOP.  This girl is a ROCK STAR.
