32 weeks

Most of my dresses do NOT fit me anymore, but by an act of sheer will I was able to squeeze this one zipped for Heather's birthday party. I found it amusing how big it made me look (well, I am getting there) especially from the side as it tented off my growing belly. Here are some photos of my 32 week belly in the dress. Brandon affectionately pointed out the resemblance this dress creates between my belly and a hot air balloon (see blog header). Touché haha.

For your amusement this is the last time I wore this outfit (my 12th week) in Las Vegas:

And here I am most of my way through week 31 at Heather's birthday bash:


belly and nursery

Here's a little update! My belly and the nursery are coming along! Brandon took a few photos of me in the nursery at the end of week 29 (I'm 31 weeks now (as of Tuesday)).

People have been so loving to us and so generous with gifts and baby showers over Christmas break, and we've been able to start putting together a space for the baby. It's so fun!

We have the crib and an ottoman (thanks Paula and Jeff!) and the rocking chair (thanks Chad and Sheryl!), a fun yellow pillow (thanks Caryn and Scott!), an adorable toy basket with custom handmade liner (thanks Alissa!) and our old dresser in there so far. Heather helped me paint the walls grey a couple of weeks ago (thanks Heather!) It's really nice to get things going because I'm definitely nesting these days.

Baby girl moves around like an acrobat and I've starting having Braxton Hicks contractions this last week (normal for this time). It does feel like we're closing in on the last leg and it's SO exciting but also scary.


19 weeks

This week has been an exciting one. I started to feel the baby moving around FOR SURE two days before my birthday! Brandon even got to feel the little jelly bean! What an awesome feeling it is. Again, this is getting more and more real. I also like being able to tell exactly where the baby IS. Gotta start keeping tabs on him/her now.

I kinda popped out this week too. I like finally looking pregnant-for-sure. We'll see how long that lasts. I had to buy maternity jeans weeks ago but now even the loose shirts and dresses that I have been easily wearing are starting to become short and snug.
