37 Weeks & Full Term!

We made it!!! Can't believe baby girl will be here any day now!! Still waiting on her book case, slip cover for her glider/rocking chair and one more decor accessory for her nursery but other than that her room is done! I have pulled out all of the other necessities and have them ready for her to come home to. Now we're just waiting for her arrival :)
I have a doctors appointment on Monday so we'll see if there is any progression then. In the meantime there are still a ton of Braxton Hicks and a fair amount of actual contractions that don't lead to anything exciting :/ I have had a lot of energy and have been getting a lot done around the house. My OCD is thanking me!

How far along? 37 Weeks 1 Day

Weight gain: 15 lbs

Sleep: Still not sleeping very well. Between getting up to use the restroom and just not being comfortable there is not much sleep going on.

Maternity clothes: Yes, for now... but not for long!!

Best moment this week: Christmas!! I can't even begin to explain how much fun it is to have a toddler during the Holidays. I had so much fun watching Landon open his presents and getting so excited over all of his new toys. Can't wait until next year!

Movement: Yes! But she has definitely slowed down...

Food cravings: Still a hot cocoa with TONS of marshmallows every night but thats about it :)

Anything making you queasy of sick: Nope! Heartburn is gone and have been feeling great!

Labor signs: Lots of Braxton Hicks and there have been stretches of actual contractions but nothing that leads to anything exciting. I have a doctors appointment on Monday so we'll see where I am at then :)

Stretch marks: Still haven't seen one! I love my Mustela!

Belly button: Not an innie and not an outie...

Happy or Moody: Happy! Can't wait to meet our sweet girl and introduce her to all of our family and friends!

Looking forward to: Having all the Christmas stuff packed up and the house perfectly clean before baby girl gets here :)

Maternity Shoot

I can't even begin to explain how in LOVE I am with my maternity photos!! Last pregnancy it was summer, there were thousands of cute maxi dresses and skirts as well as summer and warm weather. This time around, on top of not feeling that great majority of the pregnancy there was little fashion to choose from that fit the season, fit the belly and was cute. I ended up getting really lucky after struggling to find something for months! I am so happy with the way everything turned out! And although we froze our butts off outside, we were able to get out during a break from the rain and get a few great images outside as well. As always, Eva Baker did an amazing job capturing these images!

36 Weeks!!

Seriously?? 36 Weeks?? I am not sure how we got here so fast?!
All has been crazy but all has been good! I had an amazing time at my baby shower and felt so much love for our sweet girl! I have been busy working in her nursery getting everything organized. All of her clothes have been washed and put away. I am waiting on a couple of things (bookcase, a slipcover for the chair and a few decor items) but other than that the nursery is done and is oh so INCREDIBLY sweet! I feel like I am pretty prepared but I'm sure there will be things we'll need. Landon is very excited! He loves spending time in his baby sisters room :) it melts me!!!

I have been feeling pretty good. Lots of energy in the morning but that slowly diminishes throughout the day, by 3-4:00 I'm done! Still have terrible restless legs and am waking up with unbearable leg cramps! Absolutely insane!!! At least the end is near!

How far along? 36 Weeks

Weight gain: 14 lbs (beyond weird and amazing all at the same time)

Sleep: Nope. Peeing every hour to hour and a half, restless legs = no sleep :(

Maternity clothes: Yes, of course.

Best moment this week: We went and took one last peek at our baby. It is so amazing to watch how much they change in gestation! Also doing all of her laundry. For some reason when I pull a bunch of sweet pastel clothes and blankets out of the dryer, folding and putting them away isn't that bad! Oh and a maternity shoot! I am in LOVE with all of the pics!

Movement: Yes!! This girl still moves a BUNCH!! And has some bizarre positions she likes to hang out in... like a leg coming out the side of my stomach.

Food cravings: Nothing really... still have hot cocoa with a bunch of marshmallows on it every night though :)

Anything making you queasy or sick? I've actually been feeling pretty good. No more heartburn so that has been nice!

Labor signs: Yes, at 35 weeks I was still completely closed. On Wednesday, 36ish weeks baby has dropped and I am dilated to 2cm. I have been having contractions but they are not regular. Although often, they are not painful - wouldn't call them comfortable but definitely not painful. Doctor is certain I won't make it to my due date but doesn't think she'll be here in the next few days either. We'll see! 

Stretch marks: Not a one!

Belly button: Not an outie and not an innie lol

Happy or moody: Happy! And even happier the end of this pregnancy is near!

Looking forward to: CHRISTMAS!!!! I have a two year old who gets Santa and loves presents, the tree, lights and loves to bake with me. I know that's not what the holiday is all about but it sure is fun seeing it through a toddlers eyes! I can't wait for Christmas morning!!!
Also, my mom, brother, sister in law and nephew will be here with us as well - which adds to the fun of it!

34 Weeks

I was kind of hoping time would slow down just a little bit, but no. I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed with everything I still want to get done before this little bundle makes her debut... but I still have six-ish weeks so hopefully I can get it all done!
All of her furniture is here except for one piece which is backordered, but the important stuff is here! One full load of baby girl clothes has been done and I'm figuring out what I want her to wear while in the hospital and her "going home" outfit.
This weekend is my baby shower!!! I am so excited to see everyone and celebrate this sweet, sweet little girl!

How far along? 34 Weeks

Weight gain? 13 lbs

Sleep: Sleep?? What is that?? Between the awful heartburn, peeing ALL THE TIME and not being able to get comfortable it almost seems like a lost cause :(

Maternity clothes: Yes

Best moment this week: Enjoying the crazy stormy weather, watching movies and cuddling with my little boy :)

Movement: Still a lot of movement even though I can tell she is running out of room. I felt hiccups for the first time last night - weird since I felt them way earlier with Landon... not that I'm complaining ;)

Food cravings: I might have a hot cocoa with a boat load of marshmallows on it every night but not sure if I would call that a craving or normal...

Anything making you queasy or sick? I have my good days and bad. I usually take something for the nausea a couple of times a week but now I'm mostly just tired. Exhausted!!

Labor signs: Not really...

Stretch marks: Searching but haven't seen one :)

Belly button in or out? Still an innie.

Happy or moody? Christmas is right around the corner! How can I be anything but happy?!?!

Looking forward to: My baby shower this weekend and spending time with friends and family!
