Maternity Clothes: I love maternity bottoms. They are the best.
Stretch marks: Nope.
Weight gain/loss: 12 lbs?
Sleep: It has been alright. Once this week I couldn't get comfortable so I slept for a few hours on our Lazy Boy chair...which seems comfortable but wasn't really haha. Laying on my back is getting more uncomfortable as well!
Best Moment of the Week: Being able to see my stomach move because my son is moving around in there! Earlier this week I was sitting at the computer. My son was just moving away and then I looked at my stomach and saw it move outward and back, if that makes sense. It kept happening! He was working out or something in there haha. Hopefully preparing to be a BYU athlete like his dad!
Oh and we took a tour of the hospital we thought I'd deliver at, and it was great, and I think we will go there! We registered there but I just need to figure out the baby's insurance, get back to them, and we are good to run in there when it is time to deliver him!
Movement: All the time and he is now! I love it.
Symptoms: Just back pain but feeling pretty good. I am going to yoga tonight so hopefully that helps.

What I miss: Just more clothing options and a tad more energy but none of that matters!
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our boy!
Nursery: We are going to look at cribs and changing tables/dressers soon, then decide on bedding, and a paint color and go from there!
Emotions: Good?
Stupid things I have done: Umm nothing really!

Question: Where are good places to look for cute bedding? Also, do babies sleep with those comforters? Or do all you really need are sheets? I'm trying to figure this whole bedding thing out. I feel like a lot of the baby bedding is super bright and has huge big patterns...I'm looking for something more neutral and basic if you know what I mean? Thoughts?


  1. aw! the little mister is becoming more prominent. you'll be just the cutest mama! xo.

  2. I love watching my belly move! He's getting bigger and bigger so I feel him move a lot more. As for bedding, I don't think it's recommended for babies to sleep with a comforter. I'm planning on just swaddling our baby until he doesn't like it any more. I think warmer pajamas will do in the winter, but I'm not sure. And I totally know what you mean about bedding options....I'm thinking of making my own so it can be exactly what I want, but we'll see if I have the time!

  3. You look suuuuuper cute! I enjoy your daily instagram pictures!

  4. I never used anything but crib sheets and their special blankets. The comforters are really starchy and are more for aesthetic appeal I think. I just have several changes of sheets and lots of baby blankets.

  5. reading your pregnancy posts totally makes me want to get pregnant.... haha you are by far the cutest pregnant girl ever!
