Something Saturdays-on Sunday (2/9/20)

Hi! Currently no baby but boy oh boy I know it's coming soon and eeeeeeeeep. So we've just been trying to do some last minute cleaning, freezer meals, etc. and enjoy our time together. Last week we had 2 play dates (Michael's cousin's daughter Ava who is a couple months younger than James came over and then later in the week my cousin's daughter Ava-who is 10 months older-came over. We call them baby Ava and big Ava to differentiate lol) and we visited with Michael at work one morning. Michael's mom also came over Friday afternoon and helped me clean a bunch of stuff which was such a big help. This weekend has been awesome-we got to play in the snow yesterday and today Michael and I had our last pre-baby date at an awesome cafe and bakery called Blue Door. I had some delicious chocolate hazelnut crepes and a side of breakfast potatoes and onions that I'm pretty sure I could eat all day. Michael got a massive croissant breakfast sandwich that he still hasn't finished. I'm loving life right now and am so excited to meet our new addition but also anxious about things changing-all totally normal and all stuff I felt before James too. So...yeah. I'll try to check back in next week if there's still no baby, but keep an eye out on my Instagram if you're eagerly awaiting news of when we have a new arrival!

Baby #2 Update- 36/37 Weeks

Wellll I'm guessing this is my last update. EEP.

How far along:  36-37  weeks

Due Date: (officially) March 1, 2020 (But I consistently measure for around Feb 24th)

Baby's Size: Like a papaya?

Total weight gain/loss: 35ish lbs.

Maternity clothes: YEPP except for pj's and large sweaters, etc.

Stretch marks: Still seems like I've avoided new ones! Woo!

Sleep: Not too terrible-just annoying when I have to get up to pee, and my hips sometimes hurt so it takes me a bit to find a good position, and I need to be going to sleep earlier probably lol.

Best moment of this week: My appointment this week they said she's head down and really engaged in my pelvis and I'm like 70% effaced and 2cm dilated so all in all things are moving along and this baby is gonna be coming soon! It made it feel very real.

Miss anything: I miss not having the soreness (in my hips and back especially, plus that pelvic pressure) and not getting winded so quickly. I also can't wait to not have the acid reflux and Braxton Hicks messing with me.

Movement: She's still so chill compared to James but since she's gotten so big I feel like all of her tiny little movements in there.

Food cravings: Still nothing I would call a craving. I do like always want sweets, though, lol. But that's not really unusual.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nopes.

Have you started to show yet: I'm super large lol. People are nice and say I look good though.

Gender: Girl!

Labor signs: Not yet! Just lots of those Braxton Hicks.

Belly button in or out: Sometimes the center pushes out a bit depending on where she's positioned in there.

Wedding rings on or off: On, barely.

Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy, just overwhelmed and also I get a little emotional thinking about leaving James to go to the hospital and just having to share myself with someone else is a little sad.

Looking forward to: Michael and I are having a brunch date this weekend and I'm pretty stoked about that. And just soaking up as much time with James as possible. And then finally meeting this sweet new human, seeing what she looks like, acts like, etc. And watching James as a big brother (pleeeeease let him not flip out lol).

Here's my 36 week update from James (which was my last one with him, since he arrived around 39 weeks).

Something Saturdays (2/1/20)

It's February which meeeeans-there's a 99% chance we're having a baby this month! Which is why we've been cracking down and getting a lot done the last few weeks. We've been making freezer meals, packing out hospital bags, going over info, finishing projects, etc. AND we finally finished baby girl's nursery!
It's mostly gray and white with a couple pops of pink, and a loose elephant theme (the crib sheets, art work on the wall, plus some toys). I LOVE these prints we got from Lotus Nursery Art on Etsy (we customized the quote in the middle to "Have courage and be kind."
