34 Weeks & Nursery Progress

Dress, TJ Maxx
Size of Baby:  A cantaloupe, my books says that on average, baby girl should weigh about 4 & a half pounds now!!  I'm getting so anxious & ridiculously excited to see her sweet face.  By this point with Waverly, we had a recent ultrasound & this time, we haven't had one since 20 weeks and it's killing me!  We considered paying for a 4D one just to be able to see her, but ultimately decided to save the money since we will be meeting her so soon.  I've totally wanted to go back on that decision about fifty times! :)

Maternity Clothes:  I'm still living in anything stretchy & comfortable, mainly dresses since even my maternity leggings are tight as this point.  I bought some new pajamas that are just a nightie so I don't have to wear shorts anymore to sleep (they were cutting off my circulation), & have worn them every single night since.  I was almost embarrassed when my husband saw them for about the twelfth night in a row, then I remembered I'm 34 weeks pregnant with his second kid.  Enough said. ;)

Best Moment This Week:  So much nursery progress, it actually looks like a real room now which is SO very exciting!!  I organized all of Waverly's newborn & 3/6 months clothes into our new dresser, it was so surreal looking at the clothes again.  I can't believe how itty bitty they are or that we will have another little girl to put them in so very soon!  My husband also finished the closet, plus we set up both the rug & put sheets on the bed!  We still have to hang frames on the walls & accessorize, but here is a look at the pallet wall my husband finished a few weeks ago!!

Pillow
Miss Anything:  It's pretty much the same as last week, the pains in my legs are still around & brutal, as well as a belly that is large, sore, & hard as a rock.  I have had so many braxton hicks lately that I'm starting to wonder if this little girl will be a arrive a little bit earlier than her sister (who was late & induced).  And don't even get me started on my bladder, I literally can't go thirty minutes without a trip to the bathroom. So yes, some of these parts of pregnancy make me miss having my body all to myself, but I really can't complain too much, as always, I couldn't feel luckier to have had two healthy pregnancies so far!

Movement:  Her movements have definitely slowed down & feel different, but when she does, it shakes my entire belly!

Cravings:  Smoothies, yogurt, ice cream.  And sleep. ;)

Queasy or Sick:  Other than the symptoms above, feeling good & excited as ever!!

Looking Forward To:  There are so many fun things to look forward to in the next couple of weeks, our maternity pictures next weekend & our baby-q the following one, then my maternity leave begins!!  By that point, I am sure I will be more ready than ever to slow down & spend some time as a family of three before the big day!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

  5. If your mama intuition is telling you that your gal might come a bit early, you better be prepared, sweet friend;) I had a feeling I'd be meeting Vivian before 40 weeks - just make sure you have your hospital bags packed (unlike me!) Loving the pallet wall - your husband is just so darn talented. Can't wait to see how the rest of the nursery comes together!

  9. The pallet wall!!! love. I got a little snuggle time with my friend's two month old...he is so tiny and yet so much bigger than the last time I saw him. It is amazing how small and big they are at the same time, and naturally Aria looks like a basketball player now.

    I feel you on the Braxton Hicks. Sometimes they pack such a punch I kind of have to stop and take a deep breath.
