32 Weeks!

I officially look really pregnant and feel really pregnant.  There's no denying that I'm 8 months along.  Everywhere I go someone asks me when I'm due, is it a boy or girl and is this my first.  I even had the checkout guy at Kroger ask if he could push my cart out to my car.  I truly don't mind answering the questions as everyone seems genuinely interested and happy for me.  I've only had one incident when the crazy sales lady in the shoe department at Dillards asked if she could touch my belly while putting her hand on my stomach even after I gave her a crazy look.  I'm happy to answer any questions but please don't put your hands on my stomach.  Especially if I don't even know you...

A few updates...

  • Since my last post I've been to the doctor twice.  We had an ultrasound at 30 weeks and we're able to see our sweet little boy.  He's grown so much since our last peek and at 30 weeks he was measuring about 3 pounds.  She said I was measuring a little ahead of our due date which is fine by me!  Everything is checking out fine and we're grateful to have a healthy little boy growing in my belly. 
  • I scheduled the rest of my appointments until our due date and I start going every week at 35 weeks.  Crazy....
  • My coworkers hosted a baby shower for another girl and I and we are so thankful!  They gifted us with many nice things. 
  • I received an invitation for a baby shower my friends are hosting for me in October and it is absolutely adorable.  I can't wait to see what they come up with :)
  •  My brother's wedding is this weekend and I'm so excited to celebrate this great occasion with them.  I'm a little concerned about my bridesmaid dress fitting as it was pretty tight when I tried it on yesterday but I'm hoping I won't grow too much in the next week... Maybe I should have passed on the donut holes I ate this morning :/
  • Ryan's aunt made us the cutest rompers out of his dad's dress shirts.  I can't wait to dress him up in these and take his picture!  
  • All in all, things are still going well!

House Update

Our new house is officially underway and they have made quite a bit of progress in just the last few weeks.  Ryan and I drove by yesterday after work and we were excited to see that we now have a roof and windows!  It's pretty crazy to think that in just a few months we'll have a baby and a new house but Ryan and I are looking forward to all the upcoming changes.  I just hope we can handle them all... :0

Belly updates coming soon!


Courtney's Bridal Shower - Part II

This past weekend my mom and I went to Weatherford, TX for another bridal shower for Courtney.  We drove up Saturday and had a nice afternoon checking out the town and we actually went to the wedding venue.  The rehearsal dinner will also be there and we wanted to check it out one more time to tie up a few things before the actual weekend.

Later that evening we enjoyed a nice dinner at a local restaurant and came back to the hotel and relaxed before calling it a night.  We woke up Sunday morning and drove into Forth Worth to hit up Buy Buy Baby.  We don't have this store in Houston which is a shame because it seems so much better than Babies R Us.  We both picked up a few new items for Baby Rudy :)

The shower was that afternoon and everything was really nice.  Her sister and best friend handled most of the details and they really did a great job.

Love the hanging pom poms!

Wishing Tree

Bridal Bingo and yummy homemade sugar cookies

Best dessert ever.  Seriously, you must try these!

So many gifts!

This weekend we have one more celebration before the big day.  All the girls are headed to Fredericksburg for a relaxing weekend spent lounging by the pool, at wineries and time at the spa.  Is it Friday yet?!?


29 Weeks

I'm officially in my third trimester and according to my pregnancy app on my phone we only have 75 more days until our due date.  Yikes.... where did the time go?!?  Don't get me wrong, we are so excited to meet this little guy but reality is really hitting and I'm thinking of all the things we still need to do...

What's new?

  • I realized I can no longer paint my toenails.  I went to take the polish off my toes and this was a much harder task and took way more time than was worth it.  Ryan didn't offer to help so I made the executive decision to only get pedicures between now and November 19th :)
  • Heartburn has set in.  It hasn't been terrible but I find myself popping tums about once a day. 
  • I am officially going to the doctor every two weeks now.  We have an ultrasound on Thursday and I'm excited to see that sweet boy that is constantly doing somersaults in my belly.  
  • I'm waking up at least once to go to the bathroom every night.  On the weekends when I can actually sleep in a little I wake up either because I have to go to the bathroom or I'm hungry.  Once I'm up it's over and sleeping in is out of the question.  
  • I miss shopping at Banana Republic.  I receive daily emails about their new Fall line and it's hard not to look.  BR was always my go to shopping place and I'm looking forward to being able to fit into their clothes again.  Someday...
  • I also miss margaritas.  I don't know if it's the heat but that is the one drink I miss the most.  
  • We purchased a glider last week.  The estimated delivery date is Nov 2nd which is cutting it close but I'm excited.  Besides, we don't exactly have a nursery at the moment to put it in....

Here's a sneak peak of the bedding.  The bumper and crib skirt is a white and light blue seersucker and I've paired it with a printed sheet.  I have another sheet that I plan on using as well and I love the combo.  Now, if only I had the crib set up so I could put this together...

And lastly, here I am at 29 weeks!  I know I had a few rants I mentioned above but honestly pregnancy is going great and I'm loving every moment.  The countdown is on and not too many more weeks until we get to hold baby Rudy!
