Maternity clothes: Lots of them!
Best moment this week: Going into our house and unpacking our Little Love’s things! It’s so exciting to look at her clothes and imagine how cute she’ll look wearing them! I can’t wait!!!
Foods: Love it all! I’m trying really hard to stay away from sweets since I’ve obviously put some extra unnecessary pounds on.
Movement: Yes, however they are more just kicks rather than flips or sudden movements. She also really enjoys to kick me in my, ahem, private parts, which really, it’s not something I enjoy very much.
Gender: All girl!
Labor signs: A few days ago I was having some serious contractions ya’ll! They weren’t painful, but they were about 5 minutes apart, and quite uncomfortable. I keep on thinking all the time now of when real labor is going to start and if I’m going to be in any “decent” position to go to the hospital. I was planning on going shopping on Black Friday with a friend, and keep on having this horrific image of my water breaking in the middle of Macy’s. That would be a show stopper! Haha.
Belly Button in or out: Still out
What I miss: Still missing some good sleep, even though the pillow that my SIL gave me does help quite a bit! Thanks sis! Also, I miss moving around without being in a ton of pain after 15 minutes. It will soon be over, and it will all be worth it!
Looking forward to: moving into our house!!! Also, I randomly got a terrible sore throat yesterday, and I'm anticipating a cold coming my way any second now; so I'm really looking forward for this to be GONE! And of course, my most anticipated "looking forward" moment: meeting our little girl!
Milestones: Just 28 days left or maybe less! That’s under a month yo!
I guess there is a bright side to not being able to touch your feet anymore:
Free pedicure from the hubby!!! He's such a trooper! Gotta love him!

Thanks for all the love you ladies have left on our maternity pics.
I know we will cherish them forever.
Total weight gain: umm… kind of found out this week that I went over my 25lbs limit. I’ve officially gained 27lbs and still have 5 weeks left! Curses!
Maternity clothes: I still have a few non-maternity shirts that I can wear, but who am I kidding, the maternity ones are so much more comfy.
Best moment this week: hearing her heartbeat again! It’s been a while and I really missed hearing it.
Foods: I’ve been on this “sweets craving kick” lately. While my stomach sure loves it all, my hips sure do not appreciate the extra (FAT) fluff that’s been piling in on them.
Movement: She still moves a lot, but it’s more kicks than rolling around now. I believe baby girl is so running out of room!
Gender: Sweet little bundle of pink fluff and pearls.
Labor signs: Same old BH and pelvic pressure.
Belly Button in or out: Still out! And it looks and feels funny!
What I miss: How about a really good night of sleep! I’m starting to wonder if that will ever happen again, at least for the next year and a half. Also add to that frequent urination, not being able to breathe or move very well. This momma is miserable nowadays! I really don’t know how the lady from the Duggers has been pregnant pretty much for 20 years! I’m SO worn out already!
Weekly wisdom: Thank God for your blessings and your loved ones! I know I may complain a lot about being miserable, but I’m still so very happy to be this Little Love’s momma!
Looking forward to: Moving into our home! We keep on having different unexpected problems coming up, and it’s so stinking frustrating! Hello, I need to get in there and start putting things together before this child joins this party in just a few short weeks! I have not washed or put together ONE thing for her! I know! Scary, right?
Milestones: I have officially taken my engagement and wedding rings off. I’ve been trying so hard to keep them on, but I’m afraid that the lack of circulation may cause me to lose a finger, so I opted for the next best thing and took them off two days ago. Also, I’m starting to go in and see my midwife (the new one, whom I really, really like!) every week now! We’re almost done, and soon I get to meet my sweet little daughter! How can she melt my heart already?

Maternity clothes: I still do both, however the maternity ones have definitely been taking over the closet
Best moment this week: We have finally closed on our house yesterday! We’ll probably move in next weekend after all the new hardwood and carpet is installed. I can not express how very anxious I am to move in!
Foods: Love them all! I’ve been craving cold watermelon lately and the other day we went to WM and bought some! Yummo!
Movement: I never get tired of feeling her kick and bounce around! Still makes my heart melt each and every single time I feel her little legs or hands kicking away.
Gender: Her daddy’s little diva!
Labor signs: Just the usual BH and pelvic pain.
Belly Button in or out: Out!
What I miss: Being able to walk for more than 10 minutes without feeling like I’m going into labor. Also, a full night of sleep.
How I feel: So glad that we have closed on the house, and that we’re going to move into our new home soon! Also, I was watching the Felicia and Alex episode from “16 and pregnant” (that show makes me SO mad put it’s so addicting too!) and I seriously wanted to put my fist trough the TV screen and punch that punk kid in the face for being such a DB! That being said, I was feeling so, so, SO blessed to have a strong support system and a husband who is by my side through it all. Those are all things that many of those girls don’t have, and I hope I never take that for granted.
Milestones: My little miss is already 5lbs and 17 ½ in long! I only have 3 weeks until I’m full term!!! Just 15% left of this pregnancy! I’m so stinking close to meeting my daughter that my heart might just burst with joy just by thinking about it!
