27 weeks: doing chores and still feeling pretty good. Heartburn and my “displaced” rib are my major complaints at this point. Caving in to my frozen yogurt cravings more often than I should. Cleaning up after all our (5) animals is driving me crazy!
28 weeks: still wearing my “old” clothes which means tunics and leggings. Watching a bit too much tv (Season 1 Bates Motel, Call the midwife) and trying to get comfy at night using at least 2 pillows and sleeping on one side.
For our last Valentines day as a childless couple me and the sweetie went to the Dallas Art museum and then to one of our favorite restaurants in the Bishop arts district for goat cheese taters and other deliciousness. My “displaced” ribs really started hurting walking around so much, but we made it through the day and enjoyed ourselves. For some reason I couldn’t sleep at all that night and I had to cancel our plans so I could sleep all day sunday.
Thrifted this blue and red paisley dress for possible baby shower outfit…Wearing comfy denim shirt at 31 weeks…
32 weeks: had my baby shower at my aunt’s in Wisconsin with all my favorite ladies; it was a really special day. (My lips turned blue after munching on these amazing cake balls my sister made and drinking blue punch). I ended up wearing a really loose horse print tunic with leggings, which did not show my baby bump well, but I was comfy and it was like 6 degrees so I just cared about staying warm.
32-33 Weeks: at Ryan’s dad’s wedding ceremony in KY. I thrifted a $6 Old Navy maxi dress to wear.
Caught a cold and not sleeping well which is pretty typical when I travel (I’ve had about 5 hours total over 2 days in this photo–Isn’t my husband so handsome all dressed up!). After all the excitement of seeing both our families in 2 weekends and being exposed to chilling weather, I spent the next week sick with a cold, my first time being actually sick this whole pregnancy (except the nassau during the first trimester). Despite all that yuck, Baby is growing perfectly and my bloodwork is great said my midwife later at our appointment. We might be expecting a 7-8 pound (healthy) baby in two months! We are lining up our families for visits and I’m reading some books about baby sleep and breastfeeding. We are truly excited for him to be here but in the meantime enjoying as much sleep as we can get. xo Jess
