35 Week Bumpdate

5 WEEKS to go!! How crazy is that?! I honestly cannot believe that we are so very close to holding this sweet little girl in our arms!  While I still don't feel totally ready for her arrival, and I doubt that I ever really will, I am starting to ease into feeling less panicked about her coming, and truly excited about smooching our precious baby girl!

So, let's recap week 34!

Symptoms: I am seriously a broken record with symptoms, everything that has been around is here to stay and will be for the next 5 weeks I have no doubt.  Acid reflux, tiredness (more like exhaustion), sore back, peeing constantly...that's pretty much my day to day life. 

Bumpdate: As you can see above the bump is getting SUPER round and big! I honestly feel like I am smuggling a basketball in there. The bump is making every day tasks feel so much more draining and difficult.  I can barely bend over, get up by myself without it quite the task! I tried to put on my boots the other day and wow was that more work than I ever thought it would be.  It's crazy to think that I am still not done growing this little girl yet...YIKES! 

Cravings:  Sweets are still hanging on strong! I am still loving the little Valentine's heart candies...I am craving them for sure! 

What I'm looking forward to: Baby Shower #2 is this weekend and I cannot wait to celebrate with my close friends and family! It is so fun to get more sweet little things for this baby girl.  I also cannot wait to put the last little finishing touches on her nursery! It's pretty much done, but I cannot wait for it all to be done.

Best moment this week: Baby Shower #1 hosted by my lovely Momma! It was such a lovely day and it was so wonderful to meet up with old family friends and see their excitement about our sweet little Emma arriving soon! I will definitely blog about it soon!

34 Week Bumpdate

(I am starting to realize that each week I care less and less about how perfect these pictures turn out! LOL! I feel like at this point I am so big and I hate every picture anyways, that whatever works, works for me! LOL! And yes I am rocking my Patriots gear today, GO PATS GO!!!)

Another week has flown by and here I am again trying to figure out a way to wrap my head around how quickly this is all going.  Weeks are starting to blend together and seemingly go quicker and quicker each week that we get further along.  34 weeks down, only 6 weeks to go...WOW!  This sweet little girl will be here in our arms before we know it, and while I cannot wait to hold her in and smooch her adorable face, I don't want her to be here any sooner than God's perfect timing.  I feel things coming together more and more all the time, but I still feel SO unready for her to come! I know that I probably won't ever feel totally ready, I mean how can you really be 100% prepared, but I feel like I am feeling more settled every day. 

So, let's recap week 33!

Symptoms: Of course a lot of what's been going on this whole pregnancy is still hanging on strong. Thankfully my acid reflux has eased up a bit over the past week, it's still around but with less of a vengeance that it had before. I have read that as the baby gets closer to coming that can ease up as they get lower.  While I still feel  that I am carrying her pretty high, I am thankful that for whatever reason it's eased up! I will take it for sure!!! The only other thing that is going on is that I feel super gassy/burpy these days! SO GROSS I know but what can you do?! Thankfully it comes up more in the way of BURPING than anything else...I literally am burping all the time...YUCK! I am sorry if that's an overshare! LOL!

Bumpdate: I am SO round it's crazy! I feel like she is done growing up, and now she is growing out because I honestly feel like a whole basketball is in there now! It's getting harder to tie my own shoes, bend over, get up from bed (or from anywhere for that matter)!  The bump is getting more restricting all the time! 

Cravings: I am totally digging on my sweets still and the little Valentine's hearts have been calling my name like crazy this week! I have gone through two bags in less than a week...yah I have a problem! LOL! 

What I'm looking forward to:  Baby Showers! YAY! It's going to be so fun celebrating with family and friends this sweet little girl's impending arrival! It really makes it all feel even more real! 

Best moment this week:  FINALLY painting her room! I was so so nervous about it not being done yet, and now that it is done I feel like a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulder.  It's amazing how a simple coat of paint makes the room feel more "complete"! We also got her gliding rocker and that is one of few last big pieces that we have left to get, only a couple more things left now, and that really makes me happy! I am feeling like her room is coming together now and it's helping my anxiety a lot! I know OCD needs to take a chill pill but I am who I am and I can't help it! LOL! :)

33 Week Bumpdate

33 weeks sound so overwhelming far along in pregnancy, it’s kind of blowing my mind.  I am trying to not let the overwhelming feeling over take me too much, but it’s kind of hard to not be overwhelmed by everything that we still have yet to do/buy for this sweet little girl.  I know somehow it will all get done, and even if it doesn’t it will be okay, but my OCD personality is really having a hard time settling on that fact.  I just feel like 7 weeks is far too short a time! LOL!! Maybe that sounds ridiculous to you, but since I am always Ms. 10 steps ahead of everything it’s honestly freaking me out a bit.  On the other hand, the reality of seeing our sweet little girl in a very short time is really starting to get me super excited!! I cannot wait to see her sweet face and smooch all over her! I know that the minute she is here in my arms everything else that feels so important to me right now, will just fade away and figure itself out.

So, let's recap week 32!

Symptoms: My perpetual symptoms have continued to hang around, and I am confident at this point that until I pop out this little darling nothing much is going to change.  Acid reflux is truly my nemesis and honestly some times feels like it is out to get me! I am so looking forward to not having to deal with that anymore, it’s my #1 thing I am looking forward to most.  Other than the usual, I am starting to have more leg cramps while sleeping which makes it difficult to find a comfortable position from time to time.   Mostly, I cannot really complain though, things have been going smooth!

Bumpdate: The belly is getting rounder and rounder by the minute (or so I feel).  This little girl makes me feel like I am smuggling some bowling balls or something in there! LOL!! Having this bump is definitely making it harder to breathe especially going up and down stairs or walking for a long time.  Thankfully I can still tie my own shoes, but I am thinking that responsibility is going to fall to Scott here in the next couple weeks as I am finding it harder each time.

Cravings: I am finding that my cravings kind of go in patterns.  I still love sweets of course, but I am back to wanting big yummy salads! Nothing sounds more delicious around lunch time to me! I am finding that I am getting to be more and more hungry especially at night time.  I am waking up again early in the morning or in the middle of the night with a rumbling stomach. I could honestly eat a meal at that time, but I am usually so exhausted that I force myself back to sleep…not sure how long Emma will let me do that though as she continues to pack on that cute baby chub that I will get to squeeze soon!

What I'm looking forward to:  FINALLY getting our rocking glider! It should be here this week and I am so excited about having it.  It’s one of the last BIG pieces that we need for her nursery and I think having it there will make me feel a bit more at ease that things are coming together, where or not it’s at the pace that I like, it’s happening and that’s all that matters right?!

Best moment this week:  Getting to tour the hospital where we will be delivering baby girl at!! It was so exciting/weird to see everything first hand, it really made her arrival feel like it will be here soon! We couldn't be happier about where we will have her.  Not only is it close to home, but they are just finishing a complete re-model of the birth center and nearly all the rooms are completely upgraded and brand new.  It was so surreal to tour everything, and when we were leaving I told Scott that the next time we leave there, we will be leaving WITH our little girl.  WOW! That is for sure a crazy thought!

31 & 32 Week Bumpdate

Okay, so I promise this will be my LAST two week combined blog post.  I think now that the holidays are officially over I can get back on my regular schedule of blogging.  It is absolutely insane how fast the past month flew by, and here we are at 32 WEEKS already! It's safe to say that panic mode is definitely creeping in.  I am realizing more and more each day that this baby girl will be here in a VERY SHORT time frame regardless of if we are ready for her or not.  So, I am trying my best to breathe and get things done as much as I can each day for her arrival.  

So, let's recap weeks 30 & 31!

Symptoms: Honestly, I feel like a broken record when it comes to symptoms.  I don't have many but the ones that I have are definitely consistent!  Acid reflux of course is hanging on strong and quite honestly one of my TOP things that I am looking forward to about not being pregnant any more is kicking that nasty thing.  Other than that I am constantly out of breath! I feel extra out of shape, but I know it's just the fact that baby girl is growing bigger and bigger each day that keeps me from being able to breathe normally.  I am also really starting to feel super duper tired again.  It's getting hard to get out of bed in the morning and each night I feel like by 8 I could easily call it a night.

Bumpdate: I am starting to feel SO ROUND!! It's crazy! I honestly feel like I am smuggling a basketball in there! Bending over to pick things up and just every day tasks are definitely more complicated now, but she is growing nice and strong and that's all that matters to this Momma!

Cravings: Still digging on my sweets for sure! I started craving cantaloupe again which was one of my BIG cravings early on.  Besides that, I have really had a crazy craving for cookies and cream ice cream...YUMMY!!  What can I say, baby girl likes her sweets! :)

What I'm looking forward to:  Getting to have my baby showers!! FINALLY!! I cannot wait to celebrate this precious girl with friends and family! I am so excited about it! We also are going to tour the hospital birthing center on Monday! It's all becoming so real!! 

Best moment this week:  Bonding more and more with this little girl! I love all her little jabs and kicks, and it's so fun to talk to her and realize that soon and very soon I get to smooch all over her.  As crazy and overwhelmed as I am about not being 100% ready for her to get here, I am just as excited about meeting her!!
