36 Weeks #9months

Sorry no pics this week BUT the nursery should be complete for my next blog post… Stay tuned!

How far along are you? 36 weeks

Size of Baby:  baby is the size of a Crenshaw melon

Favorite Maternity clothes this week? leggings and dresses

Stretch marks? no

How’s your Sleep?  Tossing and turning all night but I’m getting some rest, I know it only gets worse once the baby arrives because it will be a lot more broken up. 

Favorite moment this week?  Last week of work!  I still have a lot of errands to run while I’m off but at least I won’t have to commit to much of a schedule and I can do things on my own time until the baby arrives. 

Do you miss anything? My clothes (nothing unusual)

Do you have any Food cravings? Nachos

Anything making you Nauseas? No

Mood?  Good because I’m finally on leave…

What are you looking forward to? Some relaxation at home, nesting to get ready for Ally, and bonding with Bode since there’s only a few more weeks of him being our only child.

35 Weeks

How far along are you? 35 weeks

Size of Baby:  baby weighs as much as a Honey Dew Melon

Favorite Maternity clothes this week? leggings, tunic shirts, flats, and dresses.

Stretch marks? no

How’s your Sleep?  Sleep has definitely gotten worse over the past few weeks, its either I can’t get comfortable or I get kicked in the middle of the night.

Favorite moment this week?  I ordered our family maternity pictures so I should be able to post some soon (on the blog).  Also we finally got around to hanging a bunch of different items in the nursery and its really starting to come together.  I’m going to wait for the shutters to be installed until I do the final reveal but so far everything looks exactly as I imagined.

Do you miss anything? My clothes and a nice glass of red wine (nothing unusual I guess)

Do you have any Food cravings? pizza

Anything making you Nauseas? No

Mood?  Good and bad, just depends when you catch me and it’s mostly related to how ‘comfortable’ I am.  But of course now that I’m getting bigger and bigger it’s much harder to feel comfortable.

What are you looking forward to? Our babymoon this weekend in Santa Barbara, we need some relaxing just my hubby and I especially since it will be a long time before we get to get away on a trip just the two of us for a long time.  AND only 1 week left of work before maternity leave!!!

As promised, I received my pictures back from Melissa Vossler Photography and here are some of my favorites below…

Size of Baby: baby weighs as much as a cantaloupe
Favorite Maternity clothes this week? Dresses and Flats — welcome spring weather!
Stretch marks? no
How’s your Sleep? I have been having a hard time falling asleep lately; mostly just trying to get comfortable when there is a lot more of me. The other thing is she is really active in the evening (like Bode was) and even the other night I got kicked or punched really hard in the rib cage and it literally made me jump in bed. It helped moving positions but it was more than uncomfortable.
Favorite moment this week? We took our maternity family photos this week and I can’t wait to see how they turned out! I chose a photographer that did a friend’s wedding and I had been following her on Facebook for a few years now. She does a great job with family photography and newborn photos so I knew that once I got pregnant I would want to hire her for our pictures. She will also be coming after Ally is born to take newborn pictures along with some family shots too. As much as I hate seeing pictures of myself this big, I feel comfortable enough knowing that a professional will be taking our photos and I will always have that memory of when I was pregnant with Ally.
Do you miss anything? All my clothes and I can’t wait to go shopping again!
Do you have any Food cravings? Chili fries, I haven’t given in to this craving yet but I know Matt wouldn’t mind if I did because he loves them too (hehe)
Anything making you Nauseas? No, just still having afternoon ‘morning sickness’ and I guess I failed to mention I have tums every night before bed because my acid reflux and heartburn is awful.
Mood? Not that great this week, I’m definitely ready to be done with working and ultimately done with this pregnancy. But luckily I only have 2 weeks left so it should go fast!
What are you looking forward to? ‘The weekend’ where we have no real plans so we can hopefully finish up the nursery. I finally placed the order for the shutters so once we get those in the room everything should be ready to go. And don’t worry, I will be posting pictures because I love the way everything is turning out, the perfect amount of playful and modern!

33 weeks

(sorry no pictures this week, but next week I will have lots of pictures to share…)

How far along are you? 33 weeks

Size of Baby:  Baby weighs as much as a pineapple (approximately 4lbs)

Favorite Maternity clothes this week? dresses and flats (I think this will be my uniform from here on out…)

Stretch marks? No

How’s your Sleep?  Good, I usually only get up once around 2am and then I go back to sleep till I get up at 530am to workout.

Favorite moment this week?  Time off with my boys… I took 2 days off in the middle of the week (because our daycare provider was on vacation) and we had such a good time!  The first day we went to the beach and to a favorite burger joint.  It was a gorgeous day and we all enjoyed the Vitamin D.

The next day was just Bode and I and we did some errands, had fun at the park, and had lunch at Johnny Rockets.  I think I might finally have my sweet little boy back, we are getting better with communicating and he is understanding how things work a little bit better.  I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel (when it comes to ‘terrible two’s’)!

Do you miss anything? Wine (I can’t believe I can enjoy a glass so soon!)

Do you have any Food cravings? Chocolate (I think I might do a ‘sweets’ detox after this pregnancy!)

Anything making you Nauseas? No

Mood?  Not the best only because I hate having to get ready to go anywhere because I’m so self-conscious of my size.  Yeah I know I’m pregnant but I feel like it takes me twice as long to get ready because I want to make sure my hair and makeup look nice since I only have a few outfits I can wear (and feel comfortable in) at this point.

What are you looking forward to? My baby sprinkle this weekend where I get to see my family and friends – pictures to come next week!  Oh and only 3 weeks of work left…
