Bumpdate // Third Trimester

Monday, April 24, 2017

Well, we are getting towards the finish line here. Only a couple more weeks left (if I'm lucky). We are excited and ready to meet our little girl! I am currently 35 weeks and 5 days, so I have about 4 weeks left if I were to go up until my due date of May 25th.

I thought that was likely to happen, as I've heard most first time moms go that long (or longer) ...but at my recent doctor's appointments they've been keeping an eye on my blood pressure and such as they were worried about pre-eclampsia.  That s**t is no joke, apparently, so I have more appointments this week and we will see what they say...but the word "induce" was thrown around at my last appointment. Hoping that isn't necessary, but I'll do what ever we need to to get baby girl here safely! 


Gender // Girl

Maternity clothes // They are basically all I wear now - loving this maxi dress from Old Navy and a couple other stretchy spring dresses for the warmer weather! 

Stretch marks // None, yay!

Belly button // Pretty much out now lol...you can see it through my clothes when I have a tight top on...it is kind of hilarious. 

Sleep // Total crap. Literally don't feel like I sleep at all - tossing and turning all night (which is also very difficult) and up multiple times a night to pee.

Best moments // My second baby shower that was for my Columbus friends and getting my boho-inspired maternity pictures done this past weekend (can't wait to share them!).

Symptoms // So many...where do I begin? Braxton Hicks, other various cramps, itchy skin (but still using tons of oil!), short of breath, just general discomfort from being so large & round...and I can't do simple things like put on tennis shoes or pants anymore haha!

Miss anything // Just being comfortable...and not getting tired and crampy when I move around too much.

Movement // All the time and super strong! Sometimes it even hurts - clearly she is running out of room. I definitely think her head is down because the kicking is up by my rib cage, and I can feel her hiccup from time to time lower down in my bump.

Cravings // Just more of those wonderful mints I mentioned recently ;)

Looking forward to // Having her here! I'm so curious as to what she looks like...and so excited to finally get to see and hold her <3
