Bumpdate || Twenty-Nine

How far along: 29 weeks

Due Date: December 17, 2015

Baby is the size of: Um, a Barbie convertible! That's way better than some crazy fruit or vegetable! About 16 inches, around 3 pounds. I think she's going to be a little girl honestly.

Symptoms: Still fighting the exhaustion. Last week completely kicked my butt starting on Monday, which made the week really long. Back pain depending on how I'm sitting or leaning (I'm guessing it's here to stay for the next 10 or so weeks). Sore feet and legs if I've stood a lot of wore crappy shoes. And pregnancy brain leaves me feeling like I have no idea what I'm doing 80% of my day. (which I'm told never goes away, the name just changes to mommy brain - wonderful!)

Gender: My little babe. Post here.

Name: Harper Elizabeth. Post here.

Movement: The last few days she's been a wild woman in the morning and evening - especially after I ate Mexican food for dinner Friday night. But then again some days, she's a lot more calm, but still wiggles and squirms. Her jabs and pushes are getting stronger, and half the time I can't help but laugh watching my stomach move all around. 

Nursery: Her dresser is complete and put together thanks to the hubby and step-dad. It completely made the room look put together. After a long search, I decided on a changing pad cover, which I'm not totally convinced on, but I guess I'll see how it looks when it arrives. I'm hoping her crib sheet arrives within the next couple of weeks so it really starts to look complete! 

Maternity Clothes: Ugh. I'm struggling with this. My options feel so limited these days, and now that it's getting cooler, I'm wearing the same things over and over again. I really don't want to put out more money on clothes, but it's driving my nuts. AND don't even get me started on shoes. My feet are ridiculous these days, and I don't know how acceptable it is to wear my boots (the only shoes that offer decent support) every day to work. But it's the only pair of shoes that don't make me want to cut my feet off by 1 o'clock. 

Sleep: Still no problems here. I love sleep. It's my best friend.

Best Moment This Week: Getting the dresser put together and making the nursery seem much more complete. I love watching the progress! 

Missing Anything: Feeling normal sometimes. I love being pregnant, and I know I'll miss it eventually, but sometimes I feel like I'm not exactly myself since more and more things are becoming struggles.

Cravings/Aversions: Chocolate maybe! If I had to pick something.

Mood: Excited to meet our little girl! But still a little irritable and lacking patience.

Husband: Nice enough to put her million piece dresser together with my stepdad. It was a tough job.

Looking Forward To: Our doctor's appointment this afternoon! With each doctor's appointment, I know we're inching closer and closer to meeting our little girl.

  1. I remember feeling so frustrated with shoes and clothes. I Say wear whatever's comfortable even if that means wearing the same shoes everyday and see if you can find a sale to pick up a couple more tops to get you through the next ten weeks cause it makes a big difference in how you feel everyday. You're looking fabulous girl! Can't wait for your little Harper to be here!!!

  2. I can completely see how wearing the same set of things over and over can be annoying. Almost 10 more weeks to go! Maybe you can find some cheap old navy deals to get you through.

  3. You're precious!! I feel the same way with my wardrobe. All my maternity clothes are summery, but I refuse to go buy more clothes with only 4 and half weeks left until her due date. I only have three weeks of work left, so I'll probably be rotating the same few outfits every few days for here on out. I've gotten to the point where I don't even care anymore! Target has put out some cute fall maternity items though if you're looking for a few cheap staple pieces to get you through the next couple of months.

  4. Haha I love that she's the size of a "Barbie convertible". Love your style too!


  5. I justified buying new clothes because she's my first baby, and I figured I can wear them for all my other pregnancies too. Still nothing was super expensive and I wore the same thing everyday too.. Gap "Supersoft" maternity leggings and a top from Motherhood. I got like 15 things from Motherhood online when they were having a sale.

    Actually, I'm wearing my maternity leggings right now, they're just so comfy. And I'm 5 lbs less than what I was pre-pregnancy lol.
