30 week bump.
this is a little late cause i'm now 31 weeks but you get the idea :)
feels like everything is going so much faster now!
i can't believe it's already time to take down fall decorations. feels like we just had halloween and now thanksgiving is over! this thanksgiving i was so overwhelmed with gratitude. i can't even think about being thankful without tearing up (maybe we'll blame that on the pregnancy hormones). we just have sooo much to be thankful for.
last week my sweet family threw the cutest baby shower! these girls are amazing at this sort of thing and it definitely showed. pictures to come later because i didn't get a chance to take any. but just think vintage, burlap, lace, doilies, fresh flowers, mason jars, the most delicious homemade breakfast foods, and a hot chocolate bar! it was perfect. and i was so happy to see all who came to share this special time. saying thank you isn't even enough!
this past month things have definitely changed on the pregnancy front.
-i've started feeling a TON of soreness/pressure on my pelvic floor muscles. didn't think i could be so sore without having done a hard workout. if i don't get off my feet enough i can barely walk!
-we are loving honey bunches of oats, fruit, and unfortunately candy.
-i'm starting to get a little anxious with it getting so close. there is no turning back! i have this vision of how her birth will go but i know i can't control any of it and that scares me. i want my body to do what it needs to without complications/intervention. i want her to be healthy and able to go straight to my chest, skin on skin. i'm working hard on not letting myself think about how things will go on birth day.. because we won't know until it happens. but there is just so much anticipation!
annnd we have finally agreed on a middle name! i wasn't totally in love with it at first but now i think it is just perfect! ...like it has been her name all along.
but something has to be a surprise so you'll just have to wait and see :)
