35 Weeks – Either a coconut or a honeydew, although we went pumpkin picking a few weeks back, and I’m pretty sure the pumpkins we brought home were just about 5.5 lbs, so that’s what I’m imagining because I can actually hold one for comparison. All of the apps and websites I look at for information every week are basically like, “yeah there’s just a whole baby in there getting fatter, but she’s pretty much like, done.” She’s about 15% body fat right now, but should be around 30% at birth, so mostly just plumping up.

Hey guys! We finished up the baby’s room today, and I’m basically obsessed with it. Everything ended up looking pretty much exactly how I wanted it to, and I couldn’t be happier. There are a few little detail things I may still add – I wanted to make a mobile but haven’t gotten around to it yet, and stuff like that- but for the most part, it’s DONE!
Here’s a panorama of the whole room, plus a few detail pictures:
Today is officially 34 weeks! This post is so late today because I had a doctor’s appointment/ check up thing. Everything is good – I had a second growth scan because of my hypoactive thyroid. They confirmed she’s still a girl (which is really great because all of the baby shower stuff has been detagged, washed and put away!) She’s measuring in the 59th percentile and weighs about 5 pounds, 11 ounces. Other than that, her heartbeat is good, everything looks like it’s measuring how it should be, and she’s basically perfect! Continue reading
This past weekend my sister and sister-in-law threw me a beautiful Philadelphia themed baby shower with yellow & grey accents to it, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Continue reading
This week, I was able to meet up with one of my sorority sisters/closest friends from college, who is also a fantastic photographer — most of the best pictures ever taken of me were taken by her. So, when she offered to take some maternity pictures of me while I was here in Philadelphia, I jumped at the opportunity because I knew she’d take some not-lame bump shots for me. Continue reading
You know what’s not super fun? A 6 hour train ride at 32 weeks pregnant. It wasn’t like, bad, but I can’t in good conscience recommend it. I’m visiting Philly this week, hence the different location for the picture being taken. My baby shower is this weekend, and I’m so excited to see everyone, especially all of the friends and family that I don’t get to see very often. I haven’t done too much here yet, but I’m just happy to be here for a visit. Continue reading
