35 Weeks

How far along: 35 weeks
Gender: Girl
Weight gain: 25 lbs.+
Maternity clothes: Mostly maternity clothes but still stretching out some of my favorite tees. I have been living in these seamless camis underneath my shirts, since none seem to be long enough to cover my belly, they are my favorite!
Stretch marks: No
Belly button in or out: Out
Sleep: I am still managing to sleep like a rock, but it takes me forever to fall asleep no matter how tired I am. My mind is constantly in motion & usually it takes me a few five-point-turns to get comfortable.
Best moment this week: Finished baby girl's nursery! It has been a ton of work but so happy with the finished product & love seeing her little dresser filled up with teeny tiny clothes that I have so many memories of Harper wearing.
Miss anything: Being able to play & roll around with Harper like she wants me to. I'm getting a little taste of what it will be like when I can't pick her up after my c-section, I know it is going to be really hard on both of us.
Movement: Baby girl seems to be running out of room, movement these days consists of lots of jabs in the lungs that take my breath away.
Cravings: Pineapple! And really all things citrus. Saw a recipe for a pineapple margarita the other day & may have literally started drooling.
Queasy or sick: Feeling good considering we are in the final stretch. Heartburn is not as frequent as with Harper, but is definitely wicked when it kicks in.
Looking forward to: Lots of fun planned in this final month of pregnancy, lots of quality time with my girl, celebrating my 28th birthday & Easter with our family.


  1. HAPPY APRIL BIRTHDAY!! I loved being 28!! (I turned 29 in December.) 28 was my first birthday with my daughter. Enjoy! Can't wait to read about your birthday celebrations!

  2. You look so beautiful here, Baby Girl is almost here!!!

  3. looking great! can't believe she will be here so soon :) I am also excited to see the nursery :)


  4. Buy the big bag of Kirkland frozen pineapple slices from Costco! I ate them my whole pregnancy and they're delicious! :) ps- love your chalkboards!

  5. You look great! Can't wait to see pictures of the nursery!

  6. Will you be having another baby shower? I'm having another (I'm pregnant with my second) but it's because my mother insists. :)

  7. You look fantastic !

  8. Congratulations on your second baby girl, you look great! I love reading your blog, you have inspired me to (try) to start my own blog but I have quickly found out that it is a LOT of work to add to work and school. Any tips?

  9. Oh & one more thing. I was very worried about not picking up Brooklyn after my c-section, but I ended up doing it earlier than I was supposed to. Everyone is different - for me, it was harder that I couldn't play with her or hold her while feeding/pumping. It sucks.

  10. Glowing & so, so close!! Xo

  11. Looking gorgeous as always!! Can't wait to see the little one's nursery!

  12. Looking great, mama! We are due the same week and my pineapple craving has been OUT of CONTROL the past few weeks. I literally can't get enough of it. Maybe this is more common than I thought.

  13. You're getting so close, and you look great! I love your updates :) Good luck with these last few weeks!

  14. When I was pregnant I had the same problem! Once I was asleep it was all good but getting to sleep took forever. I took a melatonin supplement and it really helped. I took 1-2 mg a night (with approval from my midwife, of course) and it was really helpful in the home stretch.

  15. Can't wait to see the nursery! You look fabulous mama! You're so close!!!!

  16. So exciting! It is getting so close and you still look amazing! I know you can't wait to actually have a coconut drink in one hand and your baby girl in the other!

  17. I'm an April baby too-- and it falls right ON Easter this year, so double the celebrating :) You are looking great girl, glad to hear you're feeling pretty good too!

  18. you look absolutely stunning!! so pretty & you're getting so close! :)

  19. Some how your bump doesn't look any bigger than it did a few weeks ago, which means you look totally AWESOME with less than a month to go! Have a great week and enjoy the warmer weather later this week!

  20. You look awesome! Good luck these last few weeks!
    And YAY for ATL warming up!

  21. Love this!! I was just wondering what size you got in that t-shirt? I always wear a small at J.Crew since their stuff usually runs pretty big but I'm 32 weeks pregnant lol so I didn't know how the sizing was for this one.

  22. I'm s April baby too, the 21st! :) wish you a happy healthy April with baby!
