34 weeks


How far along?  34 weeks + some days...closer to 35 weeks, but better late than never, right?

Baby is the size of a: Honeydew  a baby... she'd fit in her newborn clothes at this point! haha

Total weight gain: at least 22 lbs

Sleep: -__- Not. Good. I mean, I shouldn't complain because I know it could be a lot worse. I'm just having a really hard time getting comfortable with this big ole' belly.

Movement? She's an active little thing. Lately she makes my entire belly move when she moves around. She's been liking to hang out all the way on my right side. She sticks her foot or her knee (or some other body part) out and it's so creepy looking!

Symptoms: Heartburn when I'm hungry. Still peeing way too much. Indigestion. Also, sleeeeeepy.

Nursery: It's so close to being done and looks amazing! I can't wait to finish it and post pictures of it! All we have left is a crib skirt, curtains, and I need 2 white shelves. 

Thoughts: I have been SO busy lately preparing for baby girl. It's kind of stressful actually. And holy crap, she'll be here in a little over a month. Like I'm ready but I'm not. I'm so not. Part of me would love for her to come a little early, but I told myself in the beginning that I wouldn't be that person wanting their baby to come early because they grow best in the womb. But I mean how awesome would be it to have her here for Christmas? And to get to take maternity leave early? Stop it, Danielle. I only want her to come early for selfish reasons. Take your time, Grace! I'm happy with whenever you decide to choose your birthday. :)

Looking forward to: Maternity pictures on Tuesday! We were supposed to take them last weekend but the rain forced the photographer to cancel them. I can't travel more than an hour  away (we were taking them in Baton Rouge) anymore and she didn't have any availability to come to Lake Charles next week, so I had to reschedule with another photographer

31/32 weeks


I forgot to post last week so here's a two-fer! I may add a 32 week photo later on in the week.

How far along?  32 weeks

Baby is the size of a: Winter squash 

Total weight gain: At my 30 week apt, I reached the 20 lb mark! :O I haven't gotten on the scale since haha.

Sleep: Not too bad actually.

Movement? I've figured out that she really likes music with a lot of bass! That's when she starts kicking a lot! I'm starting to feel her move almost all day long now. I think that's something I'll miss once she's born!

Symptoms: Heartburn is pretty much an everyday thing now. Normally comes after lunch and occasionally after dinner. It's really not bad heartburn though, thankfully. Just enough to annoy me. 

Cravings: Nada. 

Nursery: Ooooooh it's finally coming together and I'm loving it! Last weekend mom and started on Grace's quilt and then this past weekend I finished it! I'm so proud of us for getting it done so quickly and not procrastinating. Not to mention, it's absolutely perfect. Also this past weekend, I made a fabric banner for her room with scrap fabric from the quilt. Which by the way, I never want to cut a strip of fabric again ever. Here's a sneak peek of the banner:

Best Moment This Week: (31 weeks) Our 3D ultrasound! I'll post about it later on in the week. :)

Thoughts: Ever since the beginning of my pregnancy, everyone (including strangers) has commented on how small my baby bump is. I would get a lot of "oh she's gonna be tiny!" I know most pregnant women would love to hear how small they are rather than how big, but it's actually been driving me crazy. My doc has said that my size and weight gain have been perfect from the start. Anyways, I thought that by how big I am now, people would stop commenting on how "small" I am, but nope, I've already heard it once last week and once today. 

Looking forward to: My second baby shower this Sunday!!
