Bumpdate-40 Weeks!



How Far Along: 40 weeks! I really can't believe that I'm writing this post. I totally thought that I would not be pregnant at this point. haha!  

Total Weight Gain: 33 lbs.

Size of Baby: We had our 40 week appointment today and she is measuring 8 lbs. 3 oz. The doctor said that at this point that could be off a little bit because it's hard to get exact measurements because they are so squished in there. But everything looks good and she looks healthy and that's all that matters to me!

Maternity Clothes:
I've been living in leggings and yoga pants. I'm not even kidding, wear them every day! And the only shoes that fit me are my Uggs, thank goodness it has been cold here! I was able to score two new pairs of Uggs since they are the only shoes that are comfortable right now, ha!  

Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement:
I feel her move around all the time. I can tell that she is running out of room in there. She hasn't kicked me in the ribs yet, but her feet are way on the side and it kind of makes me jump when she kicks now. My movement on the other hand has been very slow! ha!
Sleep:
Not. Good. I can't even get comfortable in the recliner now. I'm lucky to get a few hours of sleep at night. I have been napping whenever I can.
What I miss:
Sleep!  
Cravings:
Fruit Loops and oreos! Not together of course, ha! Still craving loaded baked potatoes from Dickey's BBQ. They are soooo good!

Other crazy symptoms:
Nothing really crazy. Heartburn. All. The. Time. It kind of sucks. But I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, so I'm hanging in there! My back has really started hurting this past week. I have been having contractions off an on but nothing that lasts.

Best Moment this week:
Just being able to rest.

Thanks for stopping by!

Showered with Love

I'm finally posting about the awesome baby showers! Yay! We had one early in September with my MIL's friends. Then our next one was in Houston in November with my friends and family there. we had almost 30 people come! It was so amazing!

My two best friends that I have known since the 5th grade and their moms hosted the Houston shower. I have known these ladies for almost 20 years and they are all family in my book! I love them all so much!

The day was perfect! The theme matched the baby bedding that we picked out. Everything was pink and green owls. They went overboard with PINK (which I couldn't get enough of). It was sooooo cute!


Katie, her mom and sister made the most beautiful diaper cake that I have ever seen in my life. I know that they put blood, sweat and tears in to making it and I appreciate it so much!


The food was absolutely fabulous!


And the gifts...oh my the gifts. I could not believe how much stuff we got. It was unreal. I  was so happy that my family came to see us, it was so fun!


Then in December my good friend and my Mom hosted a shower for all of my friends here. Over 40 people came! That in itself made me feel more loved than anything, just that so many people are excited to celebrate this baby with me. It was the best feeling!

(Mom and Melody, my beautiful hostesses)

My mom's house was turned into a sea of PINK!






So many good friends came to celebrate with us! 

Friends even came from out of town, and I was soooo happy to see them! 

The only bad things that I can say about these days was that they went by too fast! I feel truly loved by everyone came and showered Baby and I with love!!

Bumpdate-38 Weeks!


How Far Along: 38 weeks! I'm really feeling "ready" now.

Total Weight Gain: Had our 38 week appointment yesterday and I'm up to 33 lbs.

Size of Baby: Baby girl is the size of a pumpkin, according to babycenter.com. At our 36 week appoinment we had a sonogram and she was around 6.14 lbs. The doctor guessed that she would be around 8 lbs if we go to 40 weeks.

Maternity Clothes:
I've switched to all maternity clothes, they are just more comfortable at this point.
Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement:
I feel her move around all the time. I can tell that she is running out of room in there. She hasn't kicked me in the ribs yet, but her feet are way on the side and it kind of makes me jump when she kicks now.
Sleep:
Not. Good. I think it's a mixture of being anxious about L&D and just not being comfortable. Most nights I end up on the recliner.
What I miss:
I am starting to miss my body being my own. I think it's just because I'm getting uncomfortable at this point.
Cravings:
Fruit Loops and oreos! Not together of course, ha! Still craving loaded baked potatoes from Dickey's BBQ. They are soooo good!

Other crazy symptoms:
Nothing really crazy. Heartburn. All. The. Time. It kind of sucks. But I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, so I'm hanging in there! My back has really started hurting this past week.

Best Moment this week:
