We are 31 Weeks! Holy Moly! I can't believe there is only like 2 Months of this pregnancy left. Definitely creeping up to the final stretch. I am getting so nervous...but super excited at the same time. We will get to meet our little man very shortly. I am definitely starting to feel stressed out a bit, just because there is so much to do to get ready for his arrival. I need to make a game plan and start checking things off my list. I want to save the whole last few weeks of June for cleaning my house top to bottom (since it needs to be so clean for his arrival...hehe) So for the rest of this Month and beginning of next I want to get things organized for him (the rest of his cloths, diapers...buy whatever I need to buy for him) as well as decorate our Master Bedroom...make it welcoming for a little boy to arrive. There are still some things I want to sew...and crochet for him as well...so that will be my focus this Month and the first 2 Weeks in June!
Our Maternity Shoot got moved to a closer date (due to a few things) But I am so excited about this because I am seriously feeling pretty massive these days...and June 16th was so far away that I thought, by the time we get there I am going to be way too big. So it is going to now be June 1st! Just over 2.5 Weeks away. That is awesome. I am absolutely in love with the Photographer's work...so that makes this even more exciting.
We bought this used off of one of my dear friends Lauren :) She is the reason we even wanted a Beco carrier. She has about a million carriers...so I came to her for advice and this was the one she recommended. She was buying a new one with a different patter on it (same carrier) so offered this one to us as first dibs. It is is mint condition and I am in love with it. Can't wait to use it...I think I will absolutely love it. It feels so comfortable even now! Really you can't beat a $90 deal when they are about $150 new! Thanks Lauren!!!
I picked this 2 piece up from Walmart. I think it was like $7, we definitely need to consider that we will probably have to buy a few more little outfits. Isaiah was born in the middle of Winter (therefore all of his itty bitty clothes are winter clothes) I didn't even think that we don't have any shorts for a new baby.
There are a few more things on our list of things to buy for the baby...so I am sure you'll see more to come!
How does Mama Feel? Definitely better than the previous Weeks I had...I have a bit more energy now. Still very uncomfortable...but I am getting used to that. He isn't moving around as much (still a lot...still more than Isaiah did) but not as much...I think that is due to being pretty squished in there! Haha!
I feel encouraged to lose weight very fast and get back on track with my Health and Fitness after baby comes...Yes I will give myself a few Weeks to get settled and get into a grove of surviving parenthood with 2 children under 2! LOL! But this pregnancy has been a real motivation to get back on track and lose this baby weight (and pre-baby weight...that I haven't lost before I got pregnant) I will not be going into another pregnancy until I reach my goal (or at least close to my goal) which will be about 30 lbs pre-baby weigh this time around. Eeek! Seems like a lot...but I can do it... I will be so much happier and I think more comfortable with the next pregnancies because of it...(lol "pregnancies")
How Big is Baby for Week 29? Baby is the size of a pineapple (this is funny because my BIG craving right now is Ham and Pineapple Pizza...best thing in the world) Worse thing in the world before this pregnancy...I could not stand it. Baby is about 15.2-16.7 inches long, and weighs about 2.5-3.8 pounds.
