35 weeks!

Have you entered the Jean Jean Vintage giveaway for $50 credit to her vintage & antique jewelry shop?


Dress: Rik Rak Studio giveaway winning of a Jules Mae Dress | Tights: Forever 21 | Boots: Old Navy | Wrap Watch: Oh, Hello Friend yellow week

It’s been quite the busy week this week.  My parents came into town throughout the middle of it because they wanted to see me in my big belly glory.  It was so great to hang out with them and just see them one last time before we have our baby.  The next time we see them, our baby boy should be born or at least around the week of him being born (near Christmas time)!  They will be coming to help us out with the first month of baby care, we’re so blessed!

And our plans for this weekend?  Lunch with some friends at a new to us restaurant and hitting up the H&M and Savers that both just opened up on our city on Thursday, SO PUMPED!  But first… a bump update, or as Marvin calls it, a Bumpdate.  ;)

Bump update: 35 weeks

- Went to a Baby Care Basics class this week, learned a lot (how to change diapers, swaddle, bath baby)

- Had my last biweekly doctor’s appt and now we are on to weekly appts, wow!

- Getting more and more stretch marks… not fun!

- Officially can’t wear my wedding rings, so instead wear my Pear and Peacock ring on ring finger.

- Back to craving coconut water – it’s SO good.

    You’re getting so close! Don’t ya hate the stretch marks? I’ve been religious about cocoa butter at least twice a day since my tummy started to get big and would ya know it the one day I forget, bam up pops a stretch mark right next to my belly button ;( We’re now up to three times a day with the cocoa butter and its almost gone!
    I am in love with that dress its sooo cute! Sorry for the novel of a comment, I thing I’ve spent too much time on bed rest.

    You look so cute! I love the dress! I heard cocoa butter helps with stretch marks and if that doesn’t work, you can use Retin-A after birth (I used it in HS very successfully when my boobies grew overnight!).

    I am not so sure how I feel about reliving my pregnancy! Haha! Just kidding. I just can’t believe how GREAT you look through out it all. I guess blogging helps. When I was in my last month or so I took the month off school and just stayed home in my maternity leggings the entire time! Haha! They saved my life. Even the mat jeans didn’t fit me anymore… Are you going to show pictures of the baby? I’ve been frightened to do that. Just paranoid about creepy people. I watch too much Criminal Minds I guess!

    I remember that time, so exciting. Make sure you keep a few towels and a trash bag in your car until the baby comes in cases your water breaks while you are out… like mine did at TGI Fridays!!! :)
