36 Weeks

Jennie at 30 weeks and me at 36 weeks. Didn't even mean to match!

Our Halloween costumes! Farmer and a nice fat cow!

The tree decal is absolutely perfect!! Love it! Also we bought the crib bedding!

Dresser/changing table (I need to organize it!) and Maddie's name blocks put up on the wall.

We took maternity pictures last week. 3 of my favorites!...

How far along? 36 weeks
Maternity clothes? Yep. My options are getting pretty limited but with only one month left I’m not buying anything new. I’ll make do with what I have.
Stretch marks? Still none on my stomach surprisingly.
Sleep: Not too bad. I’ve been exhausted lately so when I finally lay down I pass out pretty quickly. Just wake up for trips to the bathroom and heartburn sometimes. 
Best moment these last 2 weeks: My mom and I put up the tree decal in the nursery and it looks amazing; I can’t stop going in there and looking at how cute everything is! The nursery is coming together, I just need to get some more shelves and organizational items.
Miss Anything? Being comfortable. Only a few more weeks to go though!!
Movement: Yep! She hasn’t really slowed down much even though she’s getting bigger. She still flips all over and her elbows and knees poke out my belly. I swear she’s gonna bust out of my stomach one of these days!
Food Cravings: Spicy foods and chocolate. (not together). I ate a whole bag of jalapeƱo chips and I really need to get some chocolate ice cream! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Gender: Girly
Labor Signs: Nothing noticeable
Symptoms: Heartburn, swollen fingers and feet, sore back, stuffy nose.
Belly Button in or out? Still even, but it’s pretty weird looking now.
Wedding rings on or off? Off, and the substitute ring doesn’t fit anymore either. I found an old thumb ring that fits pretty well. Poor chubby fingers!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! I can’t believe it’s less than one month til her due date! I have everything I “need” for her arrival. Now I just need to get into nesting mode and start cleaning our house like crazy.
Looking forward to: Enjoying the last few weeks without a baby, b/c I know our lives are going to be drastically changed (for the better of course!!) Getting all the final preparations ready and looking forward to meeting our little girly soon!

34 Weeks!

  Miles and I decided to wear our Tiger's shirts this week in support of our Tiger's who are in the playoffs right now. Up 2-0 on the Yankees!
How far along? 34 weeks
Maternity  clothes? Yep, my tummy is getting pretty big!
Stretch marks? Nothing new luckily
Sleep: I’ve been tossing and turning a lot which is pretty hard when I have to flop my belly back and forth and take my body pillow with me! Haha.
Best moment these last 2 weeks: Had another baby shower yesterday and Maddie got so many cute things! We have almost everything we “need” and also almost everything we “want”. Now to use all the gift cards to get the rest of the stuff.
Miss Anything? Being comfortable; anywhere I sit or stand I’m uncomfortable because of my back and feet aching.
Movement: Yep! She has figured out how to stick her little feet into my ribs which is so weird feeling!
Food Cravings: No, but my spice tolerance has gone up apparently. I made a Mexican dish and had to keep adding hot sauce. And for those of you that don’t know, I usually am a huge wimp about spice, as in BBQ sauce is too spicy normally!  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really, sometimes the heartburn makes me feel sick.
Gender: Baby Girl Madilyn
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: My hands and feet keep getting so swollen. Achy back. All that fun stuff!
Belly Button in or out? Evened out, sometimes it pops out a little!
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! It’s getting closer…6 weeks to go!
Looking forward to: Getting the nursery organized and set up with all the new stuff. Also I need to pack my hospital bags soon in case Maddie decides to come early! (keep cooking away girly!)
