We had an exciting appointment this week to check in on baby! 31 weeks and since I am anemic, they wanted to check the baby’s size and you can keep scrolling to find out the updates! This non-maternity dress is absolutely amazing for a baby bump of ANY size and it comes in two different prints! I am wearing a size small for reference (which is my typically non-maternity size)!
SHOP the OUTFIT
Size: Baby is the size asparagus? Which I think is a bit strange because I feel like that’s smaller than last week – but maybe I am reading into this way too much! Ha! Estimated weight is about 3 1/3 pounds and over 16 inches!
Recent appointments: We had an ultrasound on Tuesday to estimate weight/growth due to my anemia and I am happy to say that we are growing along JUST fine! Baby is weighing just under 5 pounds (and since babies at this age are usually about 3.5, I think it’s safe to say that baby is growing great!) Head circumference was measuring 34 weeks+ as it did with the other two little monkeys, which always gives me a tiny bit of birthing anxiety. Send love my way 😉
Weight gained: Welp, we hit the 150 mark! I am 150.5 this week and I am pretty sure baby is most of that! 😉
Symptoms: My lower back is starting to pain me a bit and I think it’s because the baby had a growth spurt the past two weeks! Belly seems much bigger and I am waddling a bit like a duck 😉 Reflux kicks in pretty much every night and my veins are still there but other than that, I actually feel pretty darn good!
Exercise: I have been going on daily runs/walks with Winston. We do about 2 miles every day and I run for almost a mile of it (very slow)! I have stopped kick boxing since I can hardly get my leg up that high now and the majority of the class includes moves that I can no longer manage.
Favorite wardrobe piece to wear right now: THIS entire outfit is my current go-to (the one with the grey cardigan, white tank and white shorts)!
Boy or girl? We didn’t find out! You’ll just have to wait along with us to find out 😉
Nursery update…. Actually just ordered a new rug for the room that the nursery will be in and I have a few things in the works for this! Super excited to see it all come together! 🙂
Pregnancy related Item I have loved this week: My Kimi and Kai sweatshirt that you have all been LOVING in my Instagram stories! Get it here in solid & here in striped!!
1 thing I plan to do for myself this week: Make it a point to get outside every morning for our 2 mile walk/jog – it always makes me feel 100% better and more productive for the rest of the day!
Food cravings: Always strawberry shortcake! 😉
Currently working on: I am currently working on putting together the little nursery nook that will be in our guest room! Stay tuned for updates!
What I am dreaming about: Weirdly enough, I am constantly dreaming about water?! Has that happened to anyone else? I am always dreaming about being on water tube and white water rafting and holding on for dear life! Ha! I always wake up all sweaty afterwards, it’s the weirdest thing!
Miss anything? YES. Sangria and actually going for a long, sweaty run! 🙂
