  • 37 & 38 Week Pregnancy Update Plus a Few Adorable Gifts for Baby C

    How far along? 38 weeks

    Total weight gain/measurements: Measuring perfectly on schedule. :) Can't be bothered with my weight at this point >.<

    Maternity clothes: maternity leggings, stretchy shirts and a kimono 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day.

    Sleep: Ugh. Sleep is nice but it hurts. I have been trying to get as much sleep as possible for obvious reasons (and because I have a cold) but between my roundness getting in the way and having to pee every 20 minutes its just not in the cards. 

    Best moment this week:  OFFICALLY FULL TERM!!!!! YAAAASS!!! Everyday is closer and closer to baby C day, so every day RULES! Also, someone called me a "Unicorn Momma" which made me swoon extreamly hard!! 

    Miss anything? I miss laying on my belly! I also miss working out! 

    Movement: Ninja baby forever! He's so cute, he knows when Emily is near. He loves her purrs and will start squirming around as soon as she gets close. She loves him and he loves her <3 

    Food cravings: Ice water, fruit, pizza and oysters 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: Lightning crotch, cramps & swollen feet and ankles. Isn't pregnancy cute?!

    Belly button in or out? Flat and occasionally out! 

    Wedding rings on or off? OFF! These sausage fingers couldn't take it anymore! 

    Happy or moody most of the time: HAPPY and anxious! 

    Looking forward to: Meeting my Moy Boy 

    We have baby registries at Target and Amazon! (for those of you who have asked)

    37 Weeks

  • 36 Week Pregnancy Update Plus a Super Amazing Package from Lucy Darling!

    How far along? 36 weeks

    Total weight gain/measurements: Measuring perfectly on schedule. :) Can't be bothered with my weight at this point >.<

    Maternity clothes: Still living in simple stretchy non pregnancy clothes. With the exception of maternity pantaloons. 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day.

    Sleep: I have def noticed a difference in my sleep quality this week. I pass out around 11pm, then at around 3 am wake up every 45 minutes to pee. Then for the rest of the night I feel restless and sweaty. So thats cute. 

    Best moment this week:  Bags packed! Ready to go! The nursery is also ready for baby C! Check out my previous blog post with a million photos of our lovely little baby cave! 

    Miss anything? I miss having an endless amount of energy… but I have a feeling I won't be getting that back. 

    Movement: Even though I know he is super squished in there, he is still moving around a ton and kicking my ribs :)

    Food cravings: FRUIT!!!!!!!!! And of course cakes! 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: Something very unpleasant I have started notices besides my change in sleep, is lightning crotch. UMM HOLY OUCHIES! 

    Belly button in or out? FLAT and sometimes out when he's poking me! 

    Wedding rings on or off? OFF! These sausage fingers couldn't take it anymore! 

    Happy or moody most of the time: HAPPY! 

    Looking forward to: My Moy Boy to be here!!! Just a few more weeks! 

    We have baby registries at Target and Amazon! (for those of you who have asked)

    We received THE most adorable gift from Lucy Darling! Recently released "Baby's First Year" book which is in our hospital bag, monthly stickers and closet organizers so I can easily find outfits based on his age! SO brilliant! THANK YOU!!!!! <3

    Just like Daddy Docs! I am SO in love! 

  • 31 & 32 Week Pregnancy Update Plus Gifts from Living Royal Sock Company and Stitched Up Apparel Baby Boutique

    How far along? 32 weeks

    Total weight gain/measurements: 130lbs 

    Maternity clothes: I cracked! I had to buy larger maternity pantaloons to house these big old hips and actual maternity shirts, my non maternity shirts made me feel like a stuffed sausage. I also had to buy a belly support band.. so basically a bra for my belly. Humph! 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day.

    Sleep: Its been ok. I upped my pillow game and now use 3 big pillows. Poor Phil has little to no room left in our bed. Emily has been super clingy lately and forces herself on me every night. She will stand on me and hover until I make room for her to lay directly on my belly. She is such a weirdo. I think she likes baby boys kicks and he likes the vibrations from her purrs. 

    Best moment this week:  Having dinner with family at the mall and laughing for hours because we are all just so ridiculous. Also, we found a pediatrician very close to our house! 

    Miss anything? I miss being comfortable and not having random Braxton hicks contractions which make me instinctually grab my nether regions. -_- 

    Movement: This dude is crazy active! No complaints tho! I love it. 

    Food cravings: a glass of wine and oysters. 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: My back is increasingly sore. But only in one spot, under my right shoulder blade. I've also started crying a lot.  Not because I am sad or anything, its just a weird reaction I have to certain things. I cried in H&R Block during taxes because the old man who was doing our taxes was SO adorable. He reminded me of someone. 

    Belly button in or out? FLAT and if I eat Pho it pushes out a little…. I can see having a convex bully button in my near future! 

    Wedding rings on or off? Engagement ring is off, wedding ring is still on. Puffy fingers are mad cute… 

    Happy or moody most of the time: Overwhelmed but happy and excited...

    Looking forward to: Dim freaking sum this weekend!!!!
