Bumpdate: Week 37


We’ve been busy around here with wonderful baby showers, decorating the baby’s room and clearing out junk. I also spent a day doing laundry full of sweet baby clothes and tiny socks. We installed the car seat in my car, which is weird to see every time I get in the car. I’ve got my hospital bag packed and ready to go! Now I just need to finish reading “Baby Wise”.

I had my now weekly dr appointment yesterday and my dr predicted this baby will be a high 6 pounder, which made me happy to hear but I know it’s just a prediction and she could be wayyy off, but at least it eases some of my anxiety.


How Far Along: 37 weeks (20 days to go, but who’s counting?!)

Weight Gain: a whopping 27 pounds! How is that possible with all the throwing up that’s gone on this whole time? Oh well, hopefully that means this baby will have some yummy rolls on him! And to make myself feel better, I’m grateful I haven’t gotten any stretch marks! Let’s keep that up these last few weeks!

Maternity Clothes: I pretty much have 4 outfits that fit me now, and they are all skirts or dresses because it’s too hot to wear pants! Seriously, it was 100degrees for three days straight last week.where are you fall?!

Sleep: ha! All I can say is sleep use to be my favorite hobby, now I dread it every night. This past weekend I took a three hour nap Saturday and Sunday.

Best Moment This Week: We went on a spontaneous date on a Tuesday night! It was so fun. We went to dinner and then went to Target at got some treats and Icees and snuck them into the movie theater and saw Guardians of the Galaxy. I thought it was going to be stupid but it was pretty funny.

Movement: This poor baby is so compact in there, it seems like he has no room. It’s amazing how strong tiny little baby’s are though, he kicks and squirms so hard it makes my entire upper body move. He’s a stinker though and every time someone puts their hand on my stomach to feel him move, he stops!

What I’m Looking Forward To: Not being pregnant and so hot all the time! But mostly holding this little boy and seeing what he looks like!


Bumpdate: Week 35

Mark thinks he’s so funny…

5 weeks to go until we get to meet this baby boy! I can’t believe it. We’ve got a lot to do before then…like finish the nursery and figure out his name! The name thing is totally stressing me out. Why can’t they just be born with a name tag on?

A little update on what we e been up to lately: we just went to Hawaii for a week! I was kind of worried about going so far into my pregnancy but it was fine! I had no swelling despite the heat and 90%humidity. I just got to relax on the beach all day while Mark worked, poor guy. Hawaii is just so relaxing and laid back, and not to mention beautiful, there’s no better place to vacation! I got some very interesting looks on the beach but I have no shame anymore. I think the best part was not having to wear real clothes or makeup.

Belly on the beach. This picture kills me, the belly takes up the whole photo. And In case you were wondering, I was at the beach by myself, Mark was working. I told you I have no shame!

How Far Along: 35 weeks

Weight Gain: 23lbs…needless to say more than what I was hoping to be at right now. Oh well, I’ve tried to be healthy and as active as I can, so hopefully it means this is a healthy baby 🙂

Maternity Clothes: I can’t wear anything but maternity clothes now, but still everything is uncomfortable, especially because of the heat! I’m sooo sick of summer, I’ve never said that before! But I’m sooo ready for fall and comfy clothes and layers.

 Sleep: yeah right! I’m up all night now tossing and turning and trying to find a comfortable spot, and going to the bathroom. I keep Mark up all night and I feel terrible.

Movement: All the time. And it’s big movement, where my entire belly moves. Sometimes you can see a foot or leg or elbow poking out my side. This poor baby has no room. Almost every night in Hawaii at about 9:00pm I would feel these small consistent kicks for a solid 30 minutes, I think he had the hiccups! It was funny…and then kind of obnoxious hahah.

Food Cravings: I have been craving chocolate and Dr. Pepper lately (super healthy).

What I’m Looking Forward To: I’m looking forward to my baby showers coming up! I’m so grateful for the wonderful friends and family who are throwing these showers for me and baby.
