Friday 5

 Five Favorite Pinterest Pins:

New dish

I have to skip the pepper because #wiggydiggy doesn't like the 'sprinkles' on the chicken.
It's such a fast meal!  I serve it over pasta with steamed veggies on the side.  I have a feeling I'll be making this at least every other week this summer.

Postpartum Outfit

You know you're reaching the end of pregnancy when you start to day dream about pants that button and zipper.....

Herb Garden

It's almost time to plant!  I love all of the blue pots.  I think it's time to try some herbs this year.

New Living Room Rug

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this rug from Rugs USA.  I think it will be the perfect update for our living room.

Maternity Pictures

We have photos this weekend, and this pose just bring tears to my eyes.  So so sweet.

Happy Friday Friends!!

36 Weeks

 How far along:  36 weeks

Baby size:  Big as a Papaya.  Approx 19 inches long.

Baby's progress:  Practicing breathing and putting on the pounds

Weight gain:  20 pounds

Stretch marks:  Not yet!!

Sleep: I'm sleeping well, but I'm getting up at least three times a night for potty breaks.

Gender: Not much longer until we find out!!

Movement:  Constant!  This baby is a mover.

Best moment this week: I scored a Britax B-Ready on a local resale site for CHEAP.  It came with the second seat AND car seat adapter!  I'm still dancing for joy.

Looking forward to:  Maternity pictures are this weekend.  Fingers crossed the sun is out and it's warm-ish.

Food cravings:  A glass of sunny D every morning.  Haha.  I still find the taste gross, but I HAVE TO HAVE a glass before starting my day.

Belly Button - In or Out:  mostly out.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Food in general

Wedding Rings - On or Off:  Mostly off.  I wear them on the weekend, but sitting at work makes my fingers swell during the day.  I dug out my "Boat Ring" to wear during the day.
"Boat Ring"  aka $6 ring from Wal-Mart I would wear when we were boating or camping.

Labor signs: Braxton Hicks.  Lots and lots and lots of them.

What I miss:  MARGARITA'S
Instagram is cruel when everyone is posting pictures of their patio dinners with a big, cold, margarita in their hand.

Symptoms: Baby is low.  Lots of pressure and full blown waddle going on.

Workouts: Does walking back and forth to the bathroom count?

Things that suck:  Just the physical limitations right now. Only a few more weeks!

Things that don't suck:  #wiggydiggy is so excited to be a big brother.  He talks, sings, and kisses the baby all the time.  We had an ice cream date last night and he asked to get some ice cream for the baby.  Melt my heart.

35 Weeks

How far along:  35 weeks

Baby size:  close to 6 pounds!  Woah.

Baby's progress:  It's all about birth prep now - putting on weight and getting into position.

Weight gain:  18 pounds

Stretch marks:  Not yet!!

Sleep: My naps on the weekend are THE BEST.  A solid two hours of deep sleep make up for the tossing and turning I'm doing at night.
Though - we are getting a new mattress topper and I think it will immensely help.

Gender: Coming to a hospital near us this May!

Movement:  Lots of hiccups still.  Movement is still big, but not as often as before.

Best moment this week: I slept for 6 straight hours without tossing or turning once.
Also, we finished some big projects for the nursery.  I'm just waiting on an order to arrive and then we just have to wait until baby arrives to finish the decor!

Looking forward to:  Swim lessons with #wiggydiggy and his best friend!  Maternity pictures are coming up soon too!

Food cravings:  Still want Sunny D.  I'm down to a glass in the morning when I wake up and that's about it.  Food aversion is back (mostly because I'm running out of room)

Belly Button - In or Out:  mostly out.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Food in general

Wedding Rings - On or Off:  Off while at work.  The warmer weather and sitting all day makes my fingers swell (and thankfully nothing else)

Labor signs: Braxton Hicks

What I miss:  Working out, sleeping on my back.  Jeans that button and zipper.

Symptoms: Baby is LOW.  Belly is big.  Braxton Hicks are happening daily.

Workouts: Does walking back and forth to the bathroom count?

Things that suck:  Groin/Pelvic pain.  This baby is low and ready to go.  OUCH.

Things that don't suck:  #wiggydiggy singing songs to the baby before bed.  It's the cutest!!
