31 Week Update

How Far Along:
  31 Weeks

Size of the Baby:
Baby is the size of a Pineapple.

Maternity Clothes:
I am slowly growing out of my early pregnancy tops,
but luckily I still have a few great late pregnancy tops
with some growing room still in them.

Weight gain:
I may have had a growth spurt this week...
or lets just say that Baby Girl had a growth spurt. :)
I'm now up a total of 29 lbs.

Can you tell by my eyes in this picture?
I'm pretty much tired all the time.
Sleep is pretty off and on all night,
which causes me to take tons of naps during the day.
Like today for example,
I'm kinda embarrassed to say how long my nap was.

Best Moment of the Week:
Celebrating my very first Mother's Day!
Micah took me to breakfast at one of our favorite local restaurants
and then we went to buy me a huge hanging flower basket as my Mother's Day gift!
I think we're going to make that a yearly tradition.

  She is still moving like crazy
and since she is getting so much bigger,
I can definitely see those movements very clearly.

Food Cravings:
I have been craving sweet desserts after dinner
(which may or may not be the reason for the weight gain).

Baby Girl.

Belly Button in or out:
It's so close to being an outie!
I'm giving it another week or two before it pops.

Wedding ring on or off:

Anything making you queasy or sick:
Not really, but I have been getting a bit sick to my stomach a certain times of the day again.
Nothing too bad and no throwing up, just not pleasant.

What I miss:
Being able to sleep on my back.
That will be a glorious day... or I should say, night.

What I am looking forward to:
My Mom is coming to visit in 2 weeks.
I'm so excited!

No new progress this week.
But I have slowly started washing clothing and bedding
so that its all ready for when Baby Girl arrives.

Ways to Relax:
My friend Annie and I went to see The Great Gatsby this week (so good btw!)
and immediately after seeing it I had to start reading the book again.

30 Week Update

How Far Along:
  30 Weeks

Size of the Baby:
Baby is the size of a cucumber.

Maternity Clothes:
Nothing new this week.
I did buy this tank top that I'm wearing a few weeks ago
and it's finally warm enough to wear it!

Weight gain:
Gained a pound this week, so now I'm up 26lbs.

Still not much of a change,
but I have been having some crazy dreams.

Best Moment of the Week:
I have two highlights from this week...
1. We had a few BBQ's with friends over the weekend.
It is seriously the best time of the year when we start to eat outside again.
2. I was able to sit outside and begin to weed my flower garden.
I say "begin to weed" because it literally took me 3 days
to weed what normally would have taken me a few hours...
but hey, it was fun to get outside!

 She's been super active lately,
probably because she is bigger and I can feel her more now.
Recently she has begun to shift her weight
(or maybe she is just pressing really hard)
to one side of my belly,
which makes my tummy look super uneven.

Food Cravings:
Nothing new this week,
but still loving my Iced Vanilla Lattes and Root Beer
(not mixed together... that would be gross).

Baby Girl.

Belly Button in or out:
In... but it is on it's way out!

Wedding ring on or off:

Anything making you queasy or sick:
Nope (except the egg thing still).

What I miss:
Being able to sit outside for a short amount of time
without getting ridiculously sunburnt!
What is it with being pregnant and my skin being more sensitive... geesh.

What I am looking forward to:
Finally being able to celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday!
I never thought this day would come for me.

A few more amazing gifts came in the mail this week from friends and family!
Thank you all so much!

Ways to Relax:
So, even though I only have apx 50 pages left in Les Miserables,
I decided to put that book down for a second and focus on reading a birthing book.
and it has been amazing!

My Week in Instagram

I had a bit of a pause in my Instagram postings a few weeks ago,
then this week, I feel like I practically photo bombed the site everyday. :)
There was just so many fun baby items to share with you,
a few garden prep photos...
and of course, Silas.

Have a great weekend!

Animal Kingdom

I've been slowly collecting cute little outfits for Baby Girl.
Scouring the racks of Target, department stores, and even a few consignment stores
that are absolute hidden gems here in NW Montana,
all to find great deals on the cutest little things.
I even brows the web sometimes in hopes to finding great sales...
which leads me to this post!
I am completely in love with these
animal inspired outfits created by Seed Heritage.
 Foxes, bunnies, fish, racoons, owls, deer, squirrls... even Sophie the Giraffe
(which I already bought Baby Girl a Sophie teether on amazon the other day!).
