37 weeks; baby is the size of a kettlebell





How far along: 37 weeks! Full-term here we are. 

Gender: Boy. 

Maternity clothes:  Yep. No other choice at this point. 

Belly button in or out:  Out! 

Sleep: Pretty terrible at this stage of the game. It's hard to get comfortable and fall asleep and then I'm up every 1-2 hours to use the bathroom. 

Best moment this week: Getting to catch up with friends and family at my sprinkle! And having my final meeting with our awesome doula before the baby comes. AND passing my written state board exam! I can finally get my license!

Worst moment this week:  Pain in my back in the night. It's a recurring problem. 

Miss anything: Being able to reach my feet is the biggest one. Uninterrupted sleep. 

Movement: Tons. Little dude has lots and lots of hiccups and is constantly squirming around. 

Cravings: Peaches! The craving is back for this pregnancy. Haha

Queasy or sick: Thankfully not a ton. I do have a few moments here and there or days when I get queasy, but nothing terrible. 

Looking forward to: Our anniversary on Friday!

36 weeks; baby is the size of a throw pillow

How far along: 36 weeks!



Gender: Boy!

Maternity clothes:  What are clothes? Jk. I'm just wearing the same 3 pairs of leggings and a few of the same shirts. 

Belly button in or out:  Out! It's so weird to have it as an outtie, especially since mine is so deep. 

Sleep: Hit or miss. Some nights are fine and others are terrible. 

Best moment this week: Completing my State Board practical. I won't know my score until next week, but I'm so glad to have it behind me. And I scheduled my written exam so hopefully, I can get my license before the baby comes!

Worst moment this week:  The daily terrible heartburn. 

Miss anything: Seeing my feet, being able to get in and out of bed easily. 

Movement: Still tons! 

Cravings: Not really, I'm just always thirsty. 

Queasy or sick: I had some tummy issues the other day which was more annoying than anything. 

Looking forward to: My "sprinkle" this Friday!

34 weeks






How far along: 34 weeks!

Gender: Boy

Maternity clothes:  Yep. I'm mostly wearing the same things over and over. 

Belly button in or out:  Barely in. 

Sleep: Not great this week. My back has been killing me and getting comfortable is pretty difficult at this point. 

Best moment this week: Buying a minivan! We needed the space and I'm completely in love with it. Also, getting to spend the weekend with family in Greensboro and catching up with friends at a birthday party. 

Worst moment this week:  Having to spend 7 hours at the car dealership just due to waiting for David to come from work, trading my car and waiting for paperwork to get processed. 

Miss anything: Bending over easily, not bumping my belly into things

Movement: Tons. Nothing has changed with how crazy active this little man is. 

Cravings: Not really. I'm at the point in pregnancy where everything gives me heartburn and I'm starting to find most things less desirable to eat. 

Queasy or sick: Thankfully no. 

Looking forward to: Taking State Board in 2 weeks!

33 weeks; your baby is the size of a small chihuahua







How far along: 33 weeks

Gender: Boy

Maternity clothes:  Yep. I finally caved and bought 2 dresses at Target to get me through the next couple of weeks.

Belly button in or out:  In-ish? It's pretty far out for mine to be because it's usually super deep. 

Sleep: Not great. I keep waking up a lot to go to the bathroom or blow my nose due to allergies.

Best moment this week: Having my baby sister back in Charlotte with me permanently! Yay!

Worst moment this week:  Allergies kicking my butt. 

Miss anything: Being able to see my feet, shaving easily, breathing deeply. 

Movement: Yes! Our little dude got the hiccups the other night and David could actually feel them through my belly. He is super squirmy just like Everett was. 

Cravings: Mini unwrapped Starbursts-all pinks and reds; tzatziki and cracked pepper turkey

Looking forward to: Taking state board on June 7th! I'm hoping I'll be able to do it since I'll be 36 weeks, but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to make it work.

32 weeks; baby is the size of a bento box




How far along: 32 weeks

Gender: Boy

Maternity clothes:  Yep. Mostly leggings at this point and some dresses and maxi skirts. 

Belly button in or out:  Still hanging in there. 

Sleep: The pregnancy insomnia has hit full force and I randomly can't go back to sleep for hours at a time. 

Best moment this week: Feeling absolutely great and getting a lot accomplished for baby boy. 

Worst moment this week:  Probably being kept awake for about 2 hours when I was exhausted, but the pregnancy insomnia is real and would not let up. 

Miss anything: Lung space, not waking up every 2-3 hours to go to the bathroom. 

Movement: Tons. Dude likes to hang out on my left side, just like Everett did, and moves a ton. 

Cravings: Tzatziki that I got from Aldi. So super good!

Queasy or sick: No, thankfully. 

Looking forward to: Another meeting with our awesome doula.
