    What’s in my Hospital Bag for Baby #2

    Considering I am 39 weeks, I figured I better round up my hospital bags and finish packing! I will have a few last minute things to grab on the way out, but we are ready to go now. I’m really crossing my fingers that this baby girl will come any day now. My first daughter, Everlee, was 11 days late and honestly it was far from fun. I have cut A LOT out to my hospital bags compared to what they were stuffed with my first baby. This time around, I know I won’t need nearly as much stuff. I am packing three bags: one for me, one for Shae and one for baby.

    For Me:

    PinkBlush Delivery Robe: This is the same robe I had when Everlee was born, but it’s amazing. It’s so soft and comfortable and makes it so easy to breastfeed. I think every mom deserves one of these!

    Maternity clothes: Absolutely!

    Sleep: I am a grouch without my sleep this week.

    Gender: GIRL! 

    Movement: Still going crazy in there! I actually got a pretty cool video of her rolling in my stomach. Surprising, because she always stops when I try to record. Stubborn girl!

    Best moment this week: Shae’s mom visiting us yesterday and staying with us. We had such a great time spending time with her!

    Looking forward to: Not having to roll off the couch and bed. And also looking forward to not sounding like a grunting cow when I’m trying to get up. Haha!

    Food cravings: Chips and guac, Oranges and strawberry jelly. Oh my gosh, I’ve been having a bagel or English muffin with jelly almost every morning. Or a peanut butter and jelly.

    Labor signs: Nope!

    What I miss: My old self. I’m still feeling in a slump and I’m ready to be myself again!

    Belly button in or out: In! Although it is starting to come close to being flat.

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Not myself. But I know it’s hormones and being tired and just a combination of those.

    How far along: 33 weeks!

    Maternity clothes: Yes! And also, Shae’s shirts are a go to while I’m at home.

    Sleep: I have been so greedy with sleep. All I want to do is sleep. I sleep fine other than having to wake up and legit roll out of bed twent times a night to pee. Not fun.

    Pregnancy Must Haves | Third Trimester

    Since I have been in my third trimester for a few weeks now, I have a real idea on what would be considered a must have and what really isn’t necessary. I’ve stumbled across these types of posts and there is a list of 10-15 things and half of them I find unnecessary.

    My first recommendation is a good comfortable pair of shoes. With the extra weight you gain in the third trimester, your feet can hurt pretty quickly. Depending on the season, it will vary. If you just need an every day tennis shoe, I HIGHLY recommend these! They are SO comfortable. I seriously rave about these to everyone and they are super cute. If you’re in need of a good pair of winter boots, I got these c9 boots For Christmas and I adore them! They are super comfortable and really stylish.

    27 Week Bumpdate | Baby #2

    How far along: 27 weeks! I think we are in the third trimester?

    Baby is the size of a: A bundle of bananas and over 2 lbs at this point. Holy crap!

    Weight gain: To be determined… Lol. I have an appointment next Monday.

    Maternity clothes: Yes, yes, yes, yes! I was really pregnant at this point last time when it was hot and summer time so I am in desperate need of some warmer maternity clothes.

    Sleep: All I want to do is sleep you guys. So yes, I am sleeping great other than waking up a hundred times to pee!

    Gender: GIRL! 💗💗💗

    Movement: Okay, my crazy baby is back to being super chill again. She is nice and quiet in there. But apparently she can fully hear now so maybe some music will get her bouncing around again.

    Best moment this week: Spending the entire weekend with Shae. It was so great to get a little break and spend some quality time together.

    Looking forward to: SEEING MY BABY TOMORROW. As much as I enjoyed a weekend break, I cannot wait to see my girl tomorrow.

    Food cravings: Mexican food, lots and lots of ice, still craving milk, and sour candy!

    Anything make you sick or queasy: Nope!

    Labor signs: No! Having lots of Braxton hicks this week, though.

    What I miss: Nothing really that I am missing this week. It would have been nice to order a drink out at our anniversary dinner, though!

    Symptoms: Red eyes, itchy feet, tired, can’t breathe when laying down a lot of times.

    Belly button in or out: In!

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Really happy and I am really grateful I haven’t really been super hormonal and moody. I’m sure Shae feels the same way, haha!
