Baby Boy
Due Date?
Any day now! Follow on Insta for all updates!
Name?
Keep an eye out on social! So excited to share it!
Weight gain?
Oh yes, I’ve gained enough! I felt pretty insecure about my weight gain in the first two trimesters, but over all, I am fine with how much weight I gained. I know it will take a ton of work to lose it all, but I plan on starting a new health series once I am cleared to work out.
Maternity clothes?
Scroll down to check out the incredible line, Isabella Oliver. Her clothes are absolutely beautiful, very well made, and the chicest designs. The clothing really looks like non-maternity. Mamas to be, please check it out, you will be in love!
Baby movement?
 Oh yes. TONS of kicks, shifts and punches!
But, my little one hasn’t flipped; he is breech. We found out at my 32 week appointment and it doesn’t look like he is moving. He is VERY comfortable right side up, seems to be a particular little guy! I was bummed when I found out he wasn’t moving and that I most likely wouldn’t be able to deliver naturally. There are a few options when it comes to breech babies and their deliveries, but my husband and I were not at all comfortable with the doctor manually turning the baby, so we opted to schedule a c section. I will let you ladies know about the recovery and how things go. I am nervous to say the least, but my excitement far outweighs my nerves.
Sleep?
Haha what’s that? I am barely getting through the night, but I guess that is just God’s way of getting new moms ready for sleepless nights ahead!
Cravings?
  They mainly went away, except I have started craving cookies like crazy! New Yorkers, have you tried Insomnia Cookies or the chocolate chip cookies at The Standard Grill? Dangerous!
Aversions?
I can eat chicken again! I couldn’t up until about a month ago. It was the weirdest thing!
Symptoms?
Well, did you know Carpal Tunnel is a temporary pregnancy symptom? Ha! Me either. Well, I have it in my hands and it makes sleeping that much more tough. My fingers are sore and tingly. It’s so annoying! Also, joint pain and hip pain. Blah!
Missing anything?
Drinking and sushi! I am so ready to have a glass of champagne on New Year’s Eve!!
Exercise?
 Well…. no. I really had zero motivation to work out. I am a person who enjoys working out, but just could not get it together during my pregnancy.
Best moment this week?
Starting Maternity Leave. I worked until Saturday night, so I have only had 4 days off, but I am so happy to have had this time to rest. I’ve been nesting like crazy and I am so so so excited to meet my boy. Seriously SO close!
Looking forward to?
Meeting my little man!!

On my mind?

Although, I have not loved being pregnant, (it’s tough people!) but I am feeling sad that it is coming to the end. I will miss this belly and feeling my baby move all day long. I’ve loved learning about pregnancy, taking classes and reading up on my growing boy. The whole experience is incredible, but tough, so tough. I am relieved to get my body back and get rid of these symptoms, but I really have loved carrying a part of my husband around with me and growing our baby. Ugh, so emotional!
