Bumpdate | Week 34

How Far Along: 34 weeks (8.5 months!)  I am continuously in awe at how much this bump is growing!  Remember how it looked just 4 weeks ago?  Is that not insane??  And to think we still have 6 more weeks to go.  Oy vey!
Size of Baby:  A butternut squash!  How perfect for fall which is just around the corner!
Gender:  Boy!
Maternity Clothes:  I think I am done on this front - going to try and stretch (hopefully not literally) what I already have over the next month or so.  I am starting to pick up some fall pieces that I know will fit no matter what size I am this upcoming Fall, like this amazing buffalo check vest from Old Navy!  (I am wearing a size small for reference)
Symptoms:  I was hoping I would maybe get away with not having any swelling this pregnancy - no such luck!  I've been noticing a little bit of swelling in my ankles/feet towards the end of the day and I am not happy about it.  Cankles are not cute you guys!  I just snagged an extra chair to put in my cube at work so I'm hoping if I keep my feet up during the day it will keep the swelling to a minimum.
Best Moments:  I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but one of my bestie is getting married in September and I am a bridesmaid (fingers crossed I fit into my dress and don't go into labor walking down the aisle).  Her Bachelorette party was this past weekend and I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous going into it.  I was worried how I was going to handle being the only sober one of the bunch but I ended up having SO much fun and was able to dance the night away with the best of them!  It was a fabulous weekend with amazing friends!
Looking Forward To:  My second baby shower is this weekend (yay!) and my mom is going to be bringing the crib bedding that she made.  I haven't seen it yet so I am so excited to see how it turned out.  I know it is going to look adorable!  We are also planning to hang everything up and get the rest of the nursery squared away while she is here so I will hopefully have more updates on that front and will be able to finally reveal our full nursery soon!

  6. Swelling is no fun, keeping your feet elevated as much as possible will help. So will a lot of water. Good luck at the bachelorette party!!

  12. I'm looking forward to seeing some baby shower photos. Have a great weekend!

  13. First off, you look so cute! I totally understand how it isn't fun to get dressed anymore. When I was pregnant and my bump first popped, it was so much fun to dress it, but by then end its was just a pain, especially since I had about only two pieces of clothing that fit me. You always look so cute though and love that check vest! I hope you have a great second baby shower!

  14. Congrats! Such an exciting time! :)
