Bumpdate: 33 Weeks.

I just can't believe how quickly this 3rd trimester is flying by...Lucie will be here before I know it and I need to get my butt in gear!

Thankfully this upcoming weekend will be our first at home in 5 weeks and hopefully our "to-do" will get a ton of check marks.

Ok, on to the bumpdate!

|| Dress ||

How far along: 33 weeks.

Size of babe: a cauliflower blossom.

Gender: It's a girl - Lucie!

Husband: He loved seeing his college/highschool buddies this past weekend while I was getting my baby shower on. I was honestly so thankful that he was able to spend some QT time with them...partly because I was able to have a night alone, sans husband and dogs but mostly because they have this weird "bro-ship" that spans beyond friendship and just don't get enough time together.

Fave maternity item: This dress...it's actually not maternity but I'm almost 8 months pregnant and totally rocked it at my baby shower this weekend. And for being from Anthro, you can't beat the price!

Loving: The smell of Draft baby detergent, folding all the tiny little socks, onesies and gowns, seeing the nursery come together, still being able to fit in some non maternity clothes and this lovely break in the heat.

Loathing: My contacts, the fact that my two dogs have put themselves on a new sleeping schedule where they wake up at 3am every night, my lack of motivation during the week and having to pee every 5 seconds.

Belly button: An outtie for sure.

Movement: My whole belly moves when she does and it's super weird.

Symptoms: Feet hurt when I stand too long, I feel like I have restless leg syndrome because they feel weird at night, still can't kick this congestion and some minor heart burn.

Best part of the week: The sweetest baby shower for Lucie and me and being absolutely alone on Friday night. I ate terrible food, (actually it was delicious, just not the most healthy thing in the world....ok it was an entire cup of queso and a Moe's burrito bowl but who is counting calories these days? ) watched the Longest Ride on Demand (and damn, Scott Eastwood is really a handsome man) and then went to bed early. It was pretty much heaven.

Worst part of the week: Monday. It came way to fast.

Baby Item of the Week: We still need a car seat. And can't decide between the Maxi Cosi Mico AP and Britax B Safe. I really like the Maxi Cosi because it is so light weight, but the infant weight only goes up to 22lbs. They do make the Mico Max 30 but I've just recently found out that one is not compatible with our stroller. The Britax looks great and everyone I know who has it, loves it BUT it seems so heavy....someone please just tell me what to order and I will push purchase on Amazon right this second.

Can't wait for: This weekend when we are finally going to have some time around the house to get stuff done! Reid's honey do list is currently 3 pages long.... who knows, maybe there might be a sneak peek this weekend on insta of Lucie's nursery!



  1. You look great, and that dress is awesome! My sister in law just had a baby and she also loved washing and folding all of the teeny tiny clothes! They're so cute!

  2. You look so gorgeous in the pretty dress! Isn't baby laundry the best kind?! On the car seat front, I'd suggest looking more closely at the max height instead of weight allowed with the car seat. When I was doing research it said most babies outgrow them by height first and sure enough, R is already in a convertible seat because of how long he is!

  3. You really did rock that dress girl!! I'm glad you're going to get a lot of stuff knocked off your to-do list!! xo, biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I am due September 23.. so soon!! We faced the same predicament about the car seats! We also got the Baby Jogger stroller and ended up going with the Britax car seat because it seems like it may last longer. Both have good safety reviews but the salespeople convinced me that Britax is sort of THE name in car seats. Good luck deciding!!

  5. That dress is so cute! I'm trying to find one for my shower at the end of this month and sadly the one dress I loved and ordered looks huge on me! We're getting the Britax B-Agile car seat. It's supposed to be one of the lighter ones.

  6. love love your dress! ahhh and i remember folding and putting away Violet's clothes for the first time :) it's such a sweet memory. We have the Chicco KeyFit and I like it but I have the BOB stroller and KeyFit Caddy so that's not much help with your Britax stroller. good luck! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  7. You're SO close!!! So excited for you! xx

  8. Love that you're still rocking non-maternity wear! Such a cute dress!

  9. I just love all your dress recommendations! You look beautiful!


I love hearing from you!
