37 weeks

How far along? 37 weeks and 5 days 

Weight gain? 39 lbs still holding strong

Measuring at? My last apt I was measuring a week and a half ahead. I gotta big baby 

Sleep? Now the struggle is being able to fall asleep. So if I can I force myself to sleep. I'm usually exhausted in the day but then of course when it's actual bed time my body says nope!

Best moment this week? We got our new bed and painted our room! It's adorable! Pics to follow soon

Miss anything? I'm officially done being pregnant. I have cried a ton and I miss my body and I miss feeling normal. Come out little man!

Cravings? Lots of watermelon! It's finally on season!! And pizza. Like a whole box to myself sounds heavenly hahaha

Any aversions? No but my acid reflux is back and ice cream and pretty much all dairy make it really bad!

Showing? Yes and I told my husband if one more person says I look 40 weeks and like I'm about to give birth I will punch them! I know! 

Labor signs? Not really 😭😭 I hadn't progressed since my last Drs apt and it was hard to hear. I go walking and have lots of Braxton hicks but once I stop walking they do too! Ugh

Movement? Yes little boy still moves a ton! Which I am very grateful for an active healthy boy

Happy or Moody? Oh gosh! I'm a ball full of tears. Don't even ask me how I'm feeling or doing I start to cry. It's time you guys.

Looking forward to? Having this baby! Hahaha I got nothing else

My Latest Loves

I decided to write a random post that really isn't TOO exciting but for the sake of it not being a prego post I felt it was necessary!!

Okaay okay so if you know me you know I love my Swig. And I love my Swig drinks, well recently my sister told me to try the 'Dizzle'. Its not my normal drink and I figured lets switch it I tried it. Its Sprite with pineapple syrup, peach puree, and coconut cream. Its so fun and different! I promise it sounds a little scary, but its sooo good. Even Jake was in heaven cause he drank 70% of mine.
-Also, side note I challenged myself to try every drink concoction on there list (I have a life guys I promise) so if you want to be cool as me do the challenge!-

So...this one I am afraid to admit but yet I am not at the same time. But I watch Jaclyn Hill on Youtube, a fabulous makeup artist and in her last video she talked about this song she was obsessed with. And she was like "It's by Justin Bieber" and instantly I was turned off. But then she played the song, and of course I have listened to it every day on REPEAT. Go have a listen its actually pretty good and kinda different. Judge me if you must. Its technically by Skrillex and Diplo ft. Justin Bieber and its called Where are you now?

This hat I found off Etsy. So I wasn't getting my hair colored for awhile and I also have had like absolutely zero desire to get ready. So on one of those stupid Yardsale sites on Facebook a lady posted she was selling these hats on Etsy and had a discount code. And I was like YES! What a brilliant plan, wear cute hats instead of getting ready, genius! (Because obviously no ONE has ever thought of this) So I bought this one and was worried I couldn't pull it off, but I didn't care and I have worn it a million times since I bought it. Luckily, Jake likes it haha
she has a ton to choose from so here is the link if you wanna look. 

Okay I lied I am going to talk about one thing related to baby but only because I cannot wait for him to wear this! So I found this outfit on Pinterest and I was like this is too cute for words and I totally want to bring Boston home in it. After talking Jake into ordering it, I was so stoked on life. I ordered it April 22 and it said it would ship out April 24. Well time passed and nothing happened. My money was accepted but no shipping info sent, no response. Nothing. So I checked the store policy and it said shipping will be 7-10 business days. So I thought maybe my item wasn't really ready to ship so I will just go off the store policy. Well time passed and May 6 approached. The latest it was supposed to be here. NOTHING! I was starting to get mad and stressed. First off, I spent a stupid amount of money on this outfit for him to only wear maybe twice. Second off it was his coming home outfit and I could have him any day. So I wrote the store and didn't get a response. Waited two days and wrote again. No response. Wrote the next day and no response. At this point I am panicking and I'm prego so I'm PISSED. I waited two more days and finally wrote her for the FOURTH time this time, I wasn't very nice, threatened to take this up with Etsy, and I wrote a bad review. That finally got her attention. She wrote me back and said her brother and mom both happened to be in the hospital the last couple days and that my order had been ready to ship for a week now she just never got around to it. Okay, okay. For the sake of trying to be like Jesus, I felt really bad. But lets be real I read all her reviews from previous purchases and EVERY single one claimed she took way longer to ship then stated, she never responded to their messages, and when she did she came up with some excuse as to why she had slacked. Basically I was done with this lady. She then said she would give me a free swaddle and priority ship my order. So I got it. Its adorable. And I am so excited but I don't know if it was worth the hassle or hormones. (Sorry this was so long, I have just wanted to vent this story to anyone that wants to hear it hahaha)

I know some people are getting way sick of it, but I am absolutely adoring this rain! Its been like this for about 2-2.5 weeks. And first off its saving me money on watering my lawn. Second its not bloody hot. Third I love thunder and lighting and watching the rain pour. So I am okay if this continues for awhile.

Okay last latest love. And I am legitimately not writing this for the sake of my business but for the sake of being obsessed with them. In March, Younique the company I work for came out with seven new lip stains. I have slowly been acquiring them all. I must say I am completely obsessed. They last all day and they are gorgeous and I don't have to worry about them. I wear them even when I am not getting completely ready cause it makes it look like I actually tried.

I lied, this is my last loves. These two boys. We have been really focusing on the last few weeks we have just with us and Ash and although I am beyond ready for Boston, I am a little sad that it wont be just Ash and Mom anymore. But we are doing whatever we can to soak up this last bit of time together!

36 Weeks

How far along? 36 weeks and 1 day

Weight gain? 39 lbs. straight up baby I aint ashamed 

Measuring at? I only measured one week ahead this week. So measuring at 37 which isn't uncommon 

Sleep? I am pretty tired all the time now, so thats good. But I wake up to pee at least twice and then last night I had bad braxton hicks that they kept me awake for awhile. I overdid the day before.

Best moment this week? My drs appt. I got news that I am 50% effaced, which honestly I thought they we're just going to tell me my cervix was welded shut haha

Miss anything? Having normal hormones. Especially now that we're at the end Im a wreck

Cravings? Watermelon. Milkshakes. But I only gave into the watermelon and I was so proud

Any Aversions? Not this week...

Showing? You guys when I took the above picture I literally died. How is my belly out THAT far?!

Labor Signs? So Tuesday we went on a walk and I felt tons of pressure in my pelvis then Wednesday (yesterday) all day was tons of pressure, and in the middle of the night woke up with tons of pain in my lower abdomen. Body is definitely getting ready and I am okay with that

Movement? Yes, slowed down a tiny bit, but if he gets going it doesn't stop and at first I'm like oooh and then after awhile im like okay you can stop haha
Happy or Moody? I'm trying really hard to be less moody. I want my husband to be here for me instead of want to kill me haha

Looking forward to? At this point we don't have much going on so literally all I think about is baby and getting him out. Lol thats why I apologize if my blog gets super boring the next couple weeks. I may just be posting about each week of pregnancy that I have left. I am sorry but thats all we got.

Movement? Oh yes this boy is a mover and a shaker. He is head down right now so he body is curled like a "C" and he kicks in the same spot. Just below my ribs. Plus he gets hiccups a lot
Happy or Moody? Bad, Bad, Bad week. Very moody, very ready to be done.

Maternity Pic's

Two weeks ago, I got my Maternity pic's done and I was super excited for them, but in the same moment I was extremely nervous. Excited cause I took some darling pics with my little family and Ashton but nervous cause I'm big a pregnant! But of course Tiff never fails me and I love them! She did so perfect. So picture overload starts NOW:
