  • 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

    How cute is this bunny doll and embroidery from SleepyKing?! 

    Sunshine Baby Clothing sent Baby C the sweetest summer romper! I cant even stand how precious it is! HUUUUGE THANK YOU! <3 Check out her shop for more vintage inspired peices for boys and girls! 

  • 24 Week Pregnancy Update Plus Our Family Christmas Photo & Lovely Gifts From Friends

    How far along? 24 weeks!

    Total weight gain/measurements: 117 lbs!

    Maternity clothes: I can't squeeze this bump in normal panty-hoes anymore.. thats pretty obvious. But finding a pair of maternity hoes to go with my "bell shaped NYE dress" that aren't as thick as 4 layers of skin seems to be impossible.. or maybe I am not looking in the right places? 

    Maternity bras have happened and I am SO much happier! 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day and I love how smooth and healthy my bump has been... minus the oily hands afterwards ;)

    Sleep: Pregnancy insomnia was a little better this week. We wash our sheets every weekend and Sunday nights are always the best night's sleep!I have found that reading a book instead of being on Pinterest or Youtube before bed, helps me fall asleep, and stay comfortably asleep. Not a genius discovery, but I finally caved and put the phone down! Also, can we talk about Target's SUUUUPER cheap basic pillows for a second?! They are like $4 each and are THE MOST COMFORTABLE PILLOWS EVER! I can't be bothered with my pregnancy pillow anymore, its too big. Target pillows are my jam! 

    Best moment this week:  Christmas was lovely! Phil got me a Panasonic LX7 Lumix camera so we can capture our little family! 

    Miss anything? Nope.

    Movement: Kicks for days! He is SO active. I love the little schedule he has made for himself. He isn't keeping me up at night yet, so I am pretty thrilled about that. 

    Food cravings: Everything. 

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

    Gender: IT'S A BOY!!!!!!! 

    Symptoms: Nothing new

    Belly button in or out? In!

    Wedding rings on or off? On!

    Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy, but a little stressed from the holiday rush. 

    Looking forward to: 3rd trimester! 

    This year's family Chirstmas photo. Emily hated her santa beard, then loved it. 

    Docs forever!!! 

    Beautiful Idiot Clothing sent us THE cutest outfit! A vintage gingham dress and denim shirt were upcycled and turned into denim shorts and a waistcoat. This is going to be his 4th of July outfit. Paired with a little summer fedora. 

    Sweetest onsie from a lovely friend! Thanks Katie!
