34 Weeks Pregnant
K...WHAT???? How the heck is this possible. 6 More Weeks to go???? What????.....WHAT?????
What is new?..................?..........?
Well I am in full force Nesting Mode...I started the whole Freezer Foods task. I am putting a huge dent it...I must say it is very strange making yummy dishes and not being able to eat them. At least most of the dishes I prepared are all raw...everything cut up and tossed into bags...but there was 1 recipe I used that was soup and you needed to cook it first then freeze it...drove me crazy not to eat any of it. LOL. I will be so thanking myself later though...time put into it now will pay off later.
Jayden asked me if I was stressing out over having to make meals and freeze them...I was like No not at all if anything I like doing this...seriously I am enjoying every minute of this planning...especially knowing that I am creating super awesome dishes that are so healthy for me...I won't be stressing later about not knowing what to make for dinner...I can just pull something out and put it in the oven or the crockpot and forget about it :) YAY me...
We did our Photoshoot. It was so fun and our Photographer was amazing and super skilled at what she does. It literally took her no longer than 1 Hour to take pictures of us in her Studio...as well as at a park (10 Minutes away from her studio) How awesome. She sent us a few sneak peaks on facebook...so if you are friends with me go and check them out. So adorable. I will do a separate post of just the pictures when we get them! So excited to work with her again when we have this little man.
We were in the City this past Weekend. We stayed the night with my Sister-in-Law and her Hubby and it was nice to just relax and spend some time with them for a bit. We also got a bit of shopping in for a few last minute things. There are still some things we need to get before he arrives, but most of it I can order online and not have to take another trip into the City for. This past Weekend proved to me that I don't want to travel anymore if I don't have to. The 3 Hour trip into the City nearly killed me, I was so uncomfortable, and all that walking made my feet super swollen. Yikes. I think we'll stay home now until he arrives.
Some little newborn (Size 0-1 Month) jeans from H&M I scored these for $5 on clearance :) I Love that they have the super stretchy part on the waste (will be perfect for the cloth diapers)
I also scored another deal on some newborn diapers. I got these 7 used Lil Joey's and Knockoff Lil' Joeys for $30. What a steal of a deal. Then I picked up this little 2 piece summer set up from Winners I think it was about $6.99 for the set.
We also picked up some Cradle Sheets/play-yard sheets and crib sheets. (just plain old white ones nothing to take a pic of...haha)
I really wanted a belly bandit for my first pregnancy but they are pretty darn expensive new. I am a member of this pretty awesome group on Facebook for Mom's and one of the girls posted that she was using one with her newest baby. I told her that I really wanted one and then she offered to sell it to me when she was finished with it. Needless to say I told her YES I would buy it off her for $20...anyways the sweet Mama gave it to me for free. Seriously I am so excited to use it. I am a little skeptical though about the Size Small part. I was a medium before I got pregnant...but we'll see, if I can't wear it right away that's fine, I'll wear it later...or with my next pregnancy!
How does Mama Feel? I...Feel....very very Pregnant. I am actually feeling pretty miserable these days. This is definitely not a fun time for me. I am tired, I have no energy (but I make energy to get cleaning/cooking done), my feet are like sausages (literally I don't fit any shoes), my Maternity clothes are tight, I have heartburn...I could seriously go on and on. The plus side is I am still loving pregnancy even though it doesn't love me all the time. LOL. Yup that's pretty much it...counting down for it to be done, and hope that the next pregnancy will be more like pregnancy #1 was :)
How Big is Baby for Week 34? Baby is the size of a Butternut Squash. About 4.2-5.8 lbs and 17.2-18.7 inches long.
