29 & 30 Week Bumpdate

Wow, have I been a bad blogger or what?! Can I blame it on the fact that the holiday season has been keeping me super busy and I just haven't had the time to get to this?! I had every intention of posting on time, but then the weeks meshed together and I figured I might as well combine them into one post by this point.  Time keeps flying by at a lighting speed, and I keep having to remind myself to chill out about the fact that Baby E will be here in 10 weeks (or less).  I honestly cannot handle that thought right now! I feel SO super unprepared still!  10 weeks is still a long time, right?! 

So, let's recap weeks 28 & 29!

Symptoms:  Of course acid reflux, leg cramps, tiredness, and all those goodies have been keeping me company.  The only "new" things that have been added into the mix are sporadic braxton hicks, thankfully nothing too painful, and being constantly out of breath! I cannot believe how much work it feels like to walk up the stairs! I literally find myself breathing hard when I reach the top...YIKES! LOL!!

Bumpdate: The bump is definitely starting to restrict me more and more each day.  Baby E just keeps growing and growing which is wonderful, but this preggo is starting to feel like there is no more room left for her, and yet we still have a while before she gets here! Again...YIKES! LOL!!

Cravings: Still loving every thing and anything SWEET!! I cannot narrow down any one thing necessarily, but I love me some candy.  Maybe that's what is causing me to hate each weekly bumpdate photo more and more..I am hating how much my face has chubbed up! :( 

What I'm looking forward to:  Working more and more on her nursery! We have a lot of "finishing touches" left to do and I will feel more at peace when things are feeling more put together for her room!

Best moment this week:  Loving all her little bumps and kicks! I just adore all her sweet movements! It makes me fall more in love with her all the time!

28 Week Bumpdate

I cannot believe we reached the THIRD TRIMESTER milestone this week!!! Honestly, I cannot believe how quickly time continues to fly on by! We are now 12 weeks (or less) from this sweet little girl's arrival and while I am truly excited about meeting her, I am definitely not ready!!  I know someone, someway everything will come together perfectly before she gets here, but right now I am starting to fall a little bit in to panic mode! 

So, let's recap week 27!

Symptoms:  Overall, I still feeling pretty darn good each day.  Of course, acid reflux is getting more and more annoying as Baby E gets bigger every day, but I this point in time I just have accepted that it's a part of every day life till she comes.  I am starting to get super tired again, and I know that will only keep on as she gets bigger and bigger! Honestly though, I have been SO blessed for the past 28 weeks with how truly easy this pregnancy has gone.  For that, I give God all the glory!! I prayed and believed for a wonderful, easy pregnancy and He has MORE than answered that prayer!

Bumpdate: From what I hear, I have really POPPED out recently!  Baby E is not shy about letting the world know that she is in there and growing every day.  I officially cannot see my toes any more when I am standing up, and the bump is definitely prohibiting me from doing things that used to be fairly easy.

Cravings: PUDDING! Again with the sweets I know, but last week I really, really craved some pudding hard core! This little girl really, really loves her sweets...or at I am blaming her for all these cravings! :) 

What I'm looking forward to:  Working more and more on her nursery, and really starting to prep for her arrival.  I am such a perfectionist about getting things done waaay in advance, so I am already starting to prep final check lists and to-do's for the next 12 weeks.

Best moment this week:  FINALLY picking out her paint color, even though we are going to wait until after the first of the year to paint her room, it's nice to have it all figured out.  And of course, all her cute little movements! I love feeling her wiggle and roll around in my belly! She is so precious!

27 Week Bumpdate

Another week has FLOWN by and I cannot believe that I am in the last week of my second trimester!  It is SO crazy how fast time is going by.  I am so excited that we are 13 weeks (or less) away from meeting this little girl, but at the same time I am super duper overwhelmed by everything that we have yet to do for her arrival.  I know it will all work out before she gets here, but right now I feel like the to-do & to-buy list are near ending and we won't get it all done.  Can time please just slow down for a teeny tiny bit?!

So, let's recap week 26!

Symptoms:  I have still been dealing with a lot of the same symptoms as always, but a couple new things have come up recently.  I am starting to get a little bit more tired similar to the first trimester.  I know as we get closer to her arrival this will become common.  I have been getting a bit more leg and back cramps recently, but again as Baby E gets bigger that's to be expected.  Overall, these symptoms aren't all that bad and I am still happy that for the most part things have been smooth sailing for baby girl and I.

Bumpdate: Holy BUMP! I feel like she is taking up more and more room by the minute.  I am starting to feel really pregnant, not like I am going to POP any second, but definitely more aware of the limitations my belly gives me.  Bending over isn't as comfortable as it was before, and I am near the point of not being able to see my feet anymore!! :)

Cravings: I cannot think of any one thing that I have really really wanted, but Baby E still loves her sweets, or at least I blame my new found sweet tooth on her! :) 

What I'm looking forward to:  Finishing more projects for her nursery! I have so many ideas of things that I want to get done, but I just need to find the time and money to do it all! 

Best moment this week:  Getting her bedding and room accessories!! YAY! It has been the highlight of my week!  I posted a link below to a sneak peek video that I posted on our YouTube if you wanna check it out. I absolutely love how cute everything is!  Other than that, it has been so fun noticing how active Baby E is getting to be.  She is constantly kicking and playing around in my belly!  I love it!
