Oh goodness where are my days going! I almost thought about combining my 29 and 30 week bumpdate because I ran out of time this weekend, but didn't think that was fair, so you'll get probably two updates this week!
Things are moving fast and furious each day as I count down the days until we get to see Mini! I've been super busy at work trying to prepare for the months I'm out and equally as busy at home getting rid of things we no longer need and nesting. The thing that is not fun about this time is how tired I am. People tell me that I'm not that big, which I TOTALLY appreciate... but my tummy feels huge and Sean even said it looked like a torpedo the other day. She's definitely getting big (praise!) but it is killing my ribs. Thankfully, my back pain is gone. But it's that constant rib pain which isn't really even a rib I think. When I press on my ribs, it doesn't hurt. It feels more like the skin or muscles and it really has turned into a constant pain. It doesn't even flare up anymore, I just feel lit all of the time. But as I'm typing, she's kicking, and all of that goes out the window and I'm filled with joy knowing that she's in there growing.
How far along: I'm 29 weeks now and feeling every bit of it. Welcome to the third trimester I said... how exciting I said... and I still have so much bigger to get :(
What I'm craving: This week it's been donuts. I had the best glazed donuts in the world this week and now I want them all of the time. Sean had a major husband fail on Friday.. After his workout, he went and grabbed breakfast with a buddy from CG. They were right next to this donut shop I like (owned by some Koreans of course), and Sean and his friend were even talking about that shop and how much I like their donuts. But did Sean think about bringing any home for me? Unfortunately he did not. And as soon as he got home and was telling me this story, he knew he messed up. I told him I'd post about this fail and he just hung his head and said it's ok. He's so adorable I can't even stay mad about it.
How I'm feeling: We're going to Seattle this week for a little babymoon and I'm a little nervous about how much walking we're going to do. I am so excited for this trip and want to see as much as we can and even go to parks and attempt to "hike". But Sean has been incredible with knowing my limits and having to take breaks, tying my shoes, etc :) so no doubt he'll make sure this trip is still wonderful for us both.
What I bought this week: My first shower is next week!! So I am on strict orders not to buy anything for Mini, so I haven't. Instead, I've bought thank you notes and prizes for the baby shower games so it feels like I'm doing something for her.
What I'm most excited about this week: Besides going to Seattle, we are taking our maternity pictures tonight! There is this one picture I'm wanting to get to make a canvas for her nursery. But our photographer, who is AMAZING by the way and a dear friend, will no doubt take a bunch of pictures that we'll have a hard time choosing from. I've been waiting for these pictures for probably a year now and can't believe today is finally the day! I'll be sure to share a sneak peek with you as soon as I can.
In the meantime, feel free to check out Merrick Rhodes Photography to see his incredible work and get an idea of what we'll be doing!
See you after Seattle!
