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.

  1. 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.

  2. you look daaaaarling, sandy! love the dress – esp that big ole bow. the photos are excellent too with that awesome background.

    love you!

  3. oh i LOVE this!
    you are sooooo beautiful. always, sweetie.

    but this is especially gorgeous: you and your cherished wee one in there. love it!

    and you are ROCKIN’ that fabulous dress! thanks for the shout-out!

    have a great weekend, wonderful one!

  4. 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!).

  5. You look so cute in this dress and the bow sits so perfectly over your bump. I can’t believe how close you are and you’re still going shopping this weekend!! How do you have so much energy?

  6. Almost there sandy!! Love your dress in this post, the color contrasts so nicely against the autumn leaves!! :)

  7. 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 Can Be Many Things

  8. 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!!! :)

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog, I’m very pleased that I have found yours now. I adore your dress. The colour is lovely and I like the print. Good luck with everything. It must be an exciting time for you.

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving sweet comments! I’ve loved all of your pregnancy outfit posts! This one is my favorite I think!

  11. Dearest sweet sandy, so happy to know your parents are in town and you are having a wonderful time! I love your gorgeous photos! You look sooo beautiful and your outfit goes so well with the background! Have a lovely merry happy sunday and love to you!

  12. You look adorable in that green dress–what a great color on you! I’m jealous you hit up H&M this weekend–I didn’t have a chance, but i hope to soon!!

  13. This is such a cute outfit, Sandy – you continue to glow in motherhood – and you’re almost to full term!!

    Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  14. Look how stylish and cute you are! The last month was the hardest for me, so I’ve definitely been saying a little prayer for you when I read your blog in the middle of the night :) You’re so close!
