Bumpdate: 34 weeks!

How big is baby? The size of a butternut squash...or a melon as it said on my phone.
Maternity ClothesYep...although I have a few regular dresses and tops that fit.

Stretch Marks: A few small ones on my sides.

Sleep: Still waking up between 4:30 and 5:00am but going back to sleep much easier. I've been pretty tired lately. Trying to do as much as I can during the day!

Best moment of the week? Definitely the baby showers. I promise to post pictures soon. I'm waiting on my sister to get them to me because they're on her SD card.

Movement: Still kicks and jabs but quiet around anyone other than J and I. She's also been laying on my left side a lot. Especially when I lay on my left side to sleep. Sometimes I wonder how she gets that far to the side!

Food cravings: Nothing really this week.

Food aversions: Nothing sounds good again. I think it's because it's SO HOT!

Belly button in or out? In...stay in baby!!

What I miss: Nothing really. Not swelling! That's been big this week with 90*+ humidity. It feels like its around 102*+ outside. Not cool. Sad my wedding rings don't fit anymore either :(

What I'm looking forward to: Doctors appointment next week. I'm supposed to go every other week but my doctor is on vacation this week. So I went from every 4 weeks to 3 weeks then after that I think I'll start going weekly.  Oh my goodness!

Milestones:  34 weeks. That seems like a lot and really close!

Nursery: New carpet is in...wahoo!! My dad is planning to start painting tomorrow! Hoping to get most of it done next week :)

Classes: Baby care class and tour in August!

Next appointment: Next week!

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Any advise for setting up the nursery? I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything from the showers. Also, any good diaper bag recommendations? I'm thinking the SkipHop, but not sure if I want to spend that much.


  1. My diaper bag came from It's not actually called a diaper bag (I think it's called a camera bag). I wanted something that looked sort of like a back pack (so much easier that way). I absolutely love it. My husband calls it Mary Poppins' bag because you can fit sooooo much in there. Best diaper bag ever!!!!!
