Hello, 33 weeks! Baby girl is now the size of a pineapple!
I’ve 100% hit the uncomfortable stage of pregnancy. Basically I’ve perfected the waddle, my feet hurt, my hands hurt, and everything is swollen. I’m also getting up more in the middle of the night and clothes are getting tighter. The third trimester is no joke!
I had a prenatal massage on Friday, which was A-MA-ZING. I’m going to try and have one every-other week until she comes. It really does make a difference. I was also able to return to prenatal yoga after missing the last few weeks due to travel. It felt good to be back.
Derek and I dedicated our weekend to putting some much needed work into the nursery. We were waiting until after the baby shower to make a big trip to Ikea/ Babies R Us/ Target for all of the remaining essentials. It was a long morning of spending $$ and playing car tetris with all of our purchases. We had to ditch the crib box, but otherwise managed to make it all fit.
We finally have a crib, which makes the room feel more complete. We’re still not done with the nursery, but definitely made some huge strides over the weekend with the crib/shelves/ curtains/ etc. I’ll have a full photo tour once we’re completely done, but here’s a sneak peek:
I also did my first three loads of baby laundry over the weekend. All of the 0-3 months clothes, towels, blankets, sheets, and anything else she’ll be expected to touch in the next couple of months have been washed and put away.
The stroller has been assembled, the carseat is ready to go, and we officially moved the baby monitor into the baby room (we’ve been using it to spy on Maddie while we’re at work – highly entertaining). I guess this is the point where everything starts to feel real? We’re getting close!
Things to look forward to next week:
- Maternity photos! <– so excited about these
- Buying a glider <– why are these so $$?
- Putting the finishing touches on the nursery
