Bumpdate: 28 Weeks.

Oh hey!
Remember me?

Let me not only get you caught up on this bump of mine, but this past weekend and week thus far.

Reid, the pups and I headed down to Williamsburg to spend the weekend with family. We totally unplugged. I did not take a single picture. Nor did I stalk Instagram or Facebook. And I did not even think about blog. It was really nice to just enjoy our family and celebrate the 4th.
Oh I did read cover to cover the new Grey book....and I'm a fan.

Work has been crazy but really good. I feel like I've gotten a great handle on this remodel and the light at the end of the tunnel is super bright! Things are still really busy but that's ok, I suspect they will be right up until I take my maternity leave.

This summer is just flying by and Lucie will be here before I know it.
I'm so looking forward to our week long beach vaca in two weeks.
I need to slow down a little.

On to the bumpdate!

How far along: 28 weeks.

Size of babe: a tropical coconut, almost 16" tall and 2.5lbs.

Gender: A sweet baby girl!

Husband: He is taking this Daddy thing so seriously! We were babysitting our 15 month niece tonight and he was so concerned about her blankets and stuffed animals being in the crib ... I think those baby classes really put the fear of God into him about SIDS. He surprises me every single day with his positive attitude and sheer excitement about bringing Lucie into the world. I'm just so impressed with him and can't wait to see his face light up when he holds our little girl for the first time.

Fave maternity item: Umm this dress I am wearing in my bumpdate pics this week. I have it in 3 colors and 2 more are on the way from Old Navy. This dress is available in maternity but I just bought the normal tall version and sized up. I get so many compliments on this dress and would be perfect for someone newly pregnant to hide their growing bump!

Loving: Milk Duds (I ate an entire box today), cold water, our new painted ceilings, new windows and back door, and actually getting some great sleep this week.

Loathing: Not having blinds (watch out neighbors, you might see something you really wish you hadn't), the fact that my engagement ring does not fit anymore, my feet at the end of the day, and trying to find baby shower dresses.

Belly button: Well, I'm officially an outtie!

Movement: Lucie has been a bit lazy these days and making this mama worry! Ive been sneaking an afternoon sip of Coke just to make sure all is well down there.

Symptoms: Well, I'm officially in my third trimester and right on queue ... hello swelling hands and feet. They just feel so stiff in the morning and night. I am trying to push more and more water, but I am about to float away. I am feeling so pregnant these days...especially walking up steps or lugging around my laptop bag. And all I want to do is eat candy

Best part of the week: Getting these house projects done thanks to our awesome contractor Erik and checking things off my massive to do list at work. I actually feel like I'm making a dent in both remodel projects!

Worst part of the week: Just being so gosh darn busy and dreading working this Saturday.

Can't wait for: Getting this house put back together and celebrating my Mom's birthday this weekend!

Linking up with Annie and Natalie for Thoughts for Thursday.

Chat more tomorrow!



  1. I love that dress! I saw your instagram picture and was like "well that looks comfy". I was all about the sizing up regular clothes but I don't think I can get away with it anymore...I may go try some of these on in store and see, though. They would be great for post-partum too! You're looking good, mama!
