Twenty-Four Week Bumpdate

DSC03027

Another month down since my last bumpdate, and I really need time to slow down.  In 16 short weeks, I will {hopefully} be meeting my sweet little baby!! Can y’all believe that?!?  16 more weeks?!?  Yeeeeeee!! I’m so excited!  My cousin, Kelly, sent me the coolest gift a couple weeks ago called Bellybuds where we can attach the buds to my belly and share music & our voices with the baby, since he or she has been developing its hearing since around twenty weeks.  The other night Husband read “Green Eggs and Ham” to Baby {but it looked like he was just reading to my bump ha ha ha!} and it was just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.  Thanks again, Kelly, for those Bellybuds!

My latest food craving is anything with bacon and I’m drinking tons of milk.  The belly is getting bigger by the day {at least that’s how I feel} and I swear Baby D is having a dance party in there most nights because there’s a lot of movin’ and shakin’ going on.  According to my super scientific, and I’m sure 100% accurate, pregnancy app on my iPhone, Baby D is the size of an eggplant this week.  I really look forward to my weekly update of the size of Baby.  Last week it was the size of a “bunch of grapes”… Thanks preggo app… that makes the size crystal clear ;)

Overall I’m feeling great, really can’t complain about anything.  Hm… I take that back.  Gaining all this weight in such a small amount of time has not been cool… And swollen feet after a few hours of wearing heels doesn’t feel too awesome… but ultimately, I just feel so blessed.  I love this little human growing inside of me SO much, none of the symptoms of pregnancy are bothering me to the point of complaining. Not yet at least… we’ll see how I feel in another month or two.

Before I finish up this bumpdate, I have to share the best maternity leggings I have found so far because I literally wear them at least 3 times a week.  They are the Blanqi High Performance Leggings from Nordstrom.  I really need to invest in another pair before I wear these to death and get a hole in them.  I’m obsessed.

Y’all, 2015 is off to a great start!  I’m really looking forward to the rest of it! xoxo


sixteen week bumpdate

IMG_1437

Can y’all believe it has been sixteen weeks already??  I can’t!  This tiny {food baby-like} bump and I have been cruising through the months like it’s nothing!  Today we went for a bike ride and stopped to watch the sail boats in the bay, and as I stood there it hit me that in four more weeks I will be half way through my pregnancy.  It’s crazy to think that in a few short months I will be holding this little human that Husband & I have made together.  Such a precious time for me as my body grows in ways it never has before {I’m ready for this bump to SHINE!}, and just waiting for that moment of flutters to happen when I know for sure this wee little baby is doing flips in there… everything is so exciting!  Husband constantly wants to touch my belly and say “hi” to the baby.  According to the books I’m reading & my pregnancy app on my phone, the baby can hear my voice.  I’m assuming he or she can hear Husband’s as well… who knows :-/

Anyway, no crazy cravings to update about.  I literally eat just about anything that’s within reach.  My legs are getting thicker so I’m not quite fitting into my skinny jeans anymore :( but I’m not heartbroken yet!  I’m basing everything on my leather pants.  As long as I can fit into those bad boys, I feel like I’m doing all right! ha ha ha!  I’ve already started ordering some important furniture for the nursery such as the crib and changing table/ dresser thingy which are on backorder through the beginning of the year.  I’ve heard some stories of other mom’s ordering their nursery furniture WAY in advance and they don’t arrive until a few weeks before baby… stressful!!  Hopefully everything will arrive in a timely fashion {including Baby}.

Oh! In case anyone is wondering, we are not finding out the gender.  We had talked about it before we were ever pregnant and decided we want to be surprised. Yes, the suspense is killing me, but I know that waiting will make it so much more special. :)

We can’t wait to meet you, Baby!! Love you so much already!!
