So this lil mama is WAY behind on the bumpdates. The past couple of weeks have flown by and we have been busy preparing for little miss’s arrival. Today’s pic isnt glamorous by any means, just me at 10pm the other night with comfty clothes on 🙂
Weight Gain/Clothes- Gained around 20-22lbs so far. Jeans are maternity except for some of my normal leggings. Tops and Dresses are normal. I am SO missing being able to wear cute skirts and being able to tuck things in. I am loving dressing my bump though!
Cravings- I have had a pretty big sweet tooth the past couple of weeks. Sweets were the last thing on my mind for the first 5-6 months. I have not had a “gotta have it now” craving this entire pregnancy. I also haven’t had a huge craving for meat like a lot of women do. I guess Olivia has particular taste buds 🙂
Symptoms- braxton hicks! I have had plenty of them and its crazy how tight your stomach gets. Olivia is still pretty strong and moving a lot which is a great sign this late in the process. I seem to have more aches and pains at night and I am trying to make myself rest and relax as much as possible. Sleep seems to be a little better, but I still get up at least 2-3 times a night. Heart Burn has also been terrible lately.
Funny Moment- Well to keep this PG, I got “checked” this week. I am progressing very well for this being my first baby. I was not prepared for the pain that came along with being checked. I was so caught off guard that all I could was laugh (with tears in my eyes). My doctor and nurse looked at me like I was some crazy lady. I do not know why I wasn’t prepared, I mean if you think about it, of course THAT would not be comfortable by any means. I am sure the mama’s reading are saying “oh you just wait until labor!” haha
Excited for- WE ARE HAVING A BABY THIS MONTH! I have said it a million times, but I cant believe how fast my pregnancy has flown by. A lot of people warned me the last month would creep by and I am sure those last weeks are the slowest. Since Olivia is set to arrive at the end of November we are putting up our Christmas decor over the weekend. This is even early for me, but I know I will not regret doing it early when I have a newborn in the house : )
Daddy Moment- One of the things I am looking forward to the most is seeing Drew with our baby girl. Just thinking about it makes me tear up. He will be the best baby girl dad : )
Room- I probably will not get the room pics up until Olivia is here, of course I could change my mind tmrw haha. Sadie Jane has found her new nap spot under Olivia’s bed. She totally knows her world is about to be rocked as well : )
Beautiful! I'm at 30 weeks now and getting so excited that in just 7 more our baby boy is full term. Very excited for you guys! Can't wait to meet lil Olivia.
I enjoy reading your baby updates and I will definitely me praying! Oh, and I don't blame you about the Christmas decor…I kinda want to put mine up already!!

I never got "have to have that now" cravings during pregnancy either- but if you breast feed i feel like it's worse and you have major cravings! Good luck with everything!
