{28-32 Week Bumpdate}


So, my adorable husband said, "Hey, remember that time you had a blog? #fail" He inspired me to visit this little space and update it with the past 5 weeks of pregnancy. I blame the fact that I have been extremely tired and busy with school, but Spring Break is right around the corner and I hope to feel extremely refreshed afterwards and hopefully a little more inspired to update frequently.

Here are the pictures I've slacked lately and missed!

28 Weeks:


29 Weeks: 


30 Weeks:


31 Weeks: 


32 Weeks:  


Size of the Baby: Squash - 15.2-16.7 inches, 2.5-3.8 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Fully wearing maternity clothes. Even most of my regularly, loose-fitting shirts aren't fitting anymore. During the week I wear stretchy pants, leggings, or maternity pants/jeans and Uggs as often as I can (though it's getting far to hot to wear them as of late), and on the weekends I rock out in maternity jeans, the one pair of maternity jean shorts "jorts" I have, or work out pants/yoga aka stretchy and fantastic.

Movement: Over the past few weeks, Baby Nabs has been moving like crazy. He is obviously running out of room though as he's doing less consistent moves and has replaced them with pushing hard in one spot trying to create more room for himself. He is still jamming WAY, WAY, WAY into my ribs, especially the right side, and sometimes I have to push on him to get him to move. Silly babe.

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well despite being unable to turn over with ease. Still having to get up at all hours of the night to use the restroom, but when I am sleeping it seems to be good sleep. I was especially tired this past week and went to bed nearly every night around 9:30. Spring break can't come soon enough!

Missing: Bending over with ease, tying shoes with ease, putting shoes on in general with ease, and rolling over with ease. Oh, and running. The weather has been so beautiful that several weeks ago I tried to run during a walk with the border collies, but that quickly ended as Wes made it clear he was not a fan, and the weight in front was too much for my back to bear. :(

Nursery: Little man's nursery is coming together quite nicely! Ryan painted the walls a beautiful dove grey, Mama McD brought his finished crib sheets over and we put them on the mattress. I love them all! We are getting pictures framed, and I have officially started nesting by putting all of his clothes away... or at least the ones that don't need closet space since Ry hasn't exactly transferred closets... yet. He will though because I told him during Spring Break I want everything in Wesson's room to be done in case he decides to make his grand debut earlier than anticipated (though we hope that doesn't happen).

Craving: Not really craving much. My stomach seems to be less capable of eating large meals and I get seriously terrible heartburn when I do, so little meals it is. I am loving raspberries still though, and the lemon Girl Scout cookies. Oh.. and the delicious Resee's Peanut Butter Cup blizzard Ryan treated me with earlier today. Oops. :)

Symptoms: Will this heartburn never cease? Oh well... 8 more weeks, 8 more weeks!

Ryan is: loving feeling Wes move, though it is more infrequent due to his cramped quarters. He's so looking forward to our little man being here as am I!

Looking forward to: the arrival of Christopher Wesson! 8 weeks sure does feel like a long way away and not enough time at the same time. I can't wait to have everything in his nursery finished next week and to share it here.

Best Moments: We had our first shower last weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. Wes is so loved and our family is so thankful for all the love and support we received. We got so many of the things we really needed and so many CUTE outfits. I can't wait to put him in all his outfits, and to use the gear we've recently collected. I am beyond grateful to my mom, mother-in-law, and grandmother-in-law to showering us. Wesson is so lucky to have them to call his own.
