My belly

watching the belly grow, one week at a time

35 Weeks and 30 pounds later I have a baby inside of me that weighs a little over 5 lbs. 

I guess nesting is kicking in. All of the baby’s things are washed and organized and I can’t wait until the weekend when I tackle organizing the linen closet- need to make room for the baby towels and sheets!!

34 Weeks. 

I am finally feeling really pregnant. My snail paced movements and waddle continue. 

My Sister had her baby girl yesterday, Dec 8th. Our Grandfather’s Birthday and the Immaculate Conception. 

Now my pregnant buddy is no longer! I will miss the belly bumps and awkward hugs - where we could barely reach each other. 

Reality is setting in- I too will actually have a baby!! Oh Boy or Oh Girl!

I feel like I look like Jabba the Hut. Things are starting to get puffy- my fingers, my face, my entire body.

33 Weeks. 

I waddle!! And I move slow, really slow. There are only a few tops that actually fit over my belly. 

Wallpaper and floors will go into the nursery this week- then furniture will be delivered. 

The room is moving along slowly but the belly is growing rapidly.

32 weeks! I’ve been getting by without maternity clothes and I’m in the homestretch. 

We received so many wonderful presents from family and friends at our baby shower. Now the house is full of baby things. It’s becoming more and more real! We have a stroller on our porch, a bassinet in our living room and a Highchair in our dining room. 

We are ready…I think!

30 weeks!! That means only 10 weeks left. Still so much to do, I think? Baby H is moving lots. So much movement that you can actually see my belly move. The doctor is thinking the baby is about 3 lbs.

29 weeks. What more can I say but Holy Shit!! It keeps growing and growing and growing. It’s so amazing!! I think I have to invest in some maternity clothes- like a winter coat. None of my current coats zip and it’s getting cold out there.

26 weeks and still growing! I have officially stopped carrying Norm to bed. That is now Jason’s job. Our next project is doing something to get ready for this baby- like the nursery!

25 weeks. I have yet to wear maternity clothes. I’m getting by with what I have and I feel proud.  We really haven’t started much yet. Yikes! Time is flying.
