Bumpdates Currently Crushing On

37-38 weeks + currently crushing on

March 30, 2016

How far along? 38 weeks

Baby is the size of? A pumpkin… WHAT.

Weight gain? Lost two pounds since last week! I’ve gained a total of 11lbs this pregnancy.

Belly button in or out? OUT!! This never happened with the girls so it’s definitely something to get used to… It really creeps me out, lol!

Movement? When he kicks, he kicks HARD. Luckily it’s been happening less and less now that there’s not much room in there.

Food cravings? Ice cream, popsicles, ice chips.

Symptoms? I get up 10-12 times a night to pee. Haven’t slept well in months. Back pain like a mother! Sciatica. Migraines. Contractions. Besides that, doing great!;)

Doctor update: At my 37 week appointment, I was 2cm 75%. Six days later (yesterday) at my 38 week appointment, I was 3cm 90%. I got my membranes stripped (ouch) but don’t really believe that does anything since I had that done twice with both girls and STILL had to be induced. Next week we’ll talk about an induction date but I’m hoping and praying he comes on his own!! We cannot wait to meet him!

Currently Crushing On

Crushing hard on these boho tie-backs by Strawberry Revolution! They come in tons of beautiful designs. They’re super comfortable. They stay put. They can be dressed up or down. They’re kinda a dream come true! (Dress is RubyClaire Boutique, necklace is Hobokin & Co.) Crushing on all things cactus. This cactus pillow from The Rosy Red Fox is so much fun! It’s really high quality and obviously adorable. Brooklynn has been carrying it around since we got it, saying, “I love MY cactus pillow!” Lol! And this “I Love AZ” puzzle from This & That, Etc. is a Garcia household fave. The girls do this puzzle every day and Harlym is starting to identify the colors! Yay! (Cactus outfit from Old Navy.)

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m obsessed with anything personalized! This blanket and gown set from Julia Scott Designs is simply gorgeous. I can’t wait until my baby boy gets here and can wear it (it’s even packed in my hospital bag)!! The quality is amazing and I love the colors.
