35 Weeks

So tomorrow I am officially 8 months pregnant.
My due date will be in exactly a month from tomorrow...guys, that is crazy.
August 27, 2012.
When do you think he will arrive?
34 weeks, 5 days.
Baby Shower outfit!
Top: Old Navy Maternity
Skinny Jeans: Motherhood Maternity
Bracelet: Guess
Necklace: Target
35 weeks, 3 days.
Top: Old Navy Maternity
Jeans: Gap Maternity
Watch: Charming Charlie
Necklace: Some boutique at the Women's Expo in Orem, UT
Earrings: Fossil

How Far Along: 35 weeks, 3 days. 3rd trimester! As of today there are 32 days until the due date!
Size of the Baby: Large cantaloupe, 6 lbs, 19-22 inches long!
Maternity Clothes: Yeah...they are pretty awesome.
Stretch marks: Just a few on each side of my hip! Lets hope it stays that way and I get no more.
Weight gain/loss: 27 lbs total now. I'll have my 36 week appointment on Tuesday and will see what changed from the 34 week appointment.
Oh, speaking of appointments, at my 34 week appointment they wanted to do a blood test again to check to see if I was still anemic or see if it had gotten worse. Well, I'm still anemic and I'm taking a prenatal with iron in it AND an extra iron pill. So now I am supposed to drink a class of OJ with my iron pill in the morning and then take my prenatal at night. Maybe I'll absorb it more? I don't know. Annoying though! Just call me anemic Ashley.
Sleep: It actually hasn't been too bad. I mean my back hurts and I wake up to pee a lot but it could be worse!
Best Moment of the Week: Well, I'm going to go with last week and say that my baby shower was pretty awesome. My cousin Paige took photos of the event and I'm not sure with whose camera...so sometime I'll get those haha.
Movement: Oh he is a mover! Getting under my ribs and such. No worries there.
Symptoms: I feel pretty good. I am hot...this summer has been dang hot...sometimes I have heartburn/reflux, sciatica, and...my back hurts...but really I feel like I've had a good pregnancy so I can't complain.
Food Cravings: I don't know. I'm getting Cafe Mexicali next week so that is sweet...I've been eating way too many Hawaiian Host Caramacs and ice cream cones, but they are so good. 
Gender: BOY!
Belly Button in or out: Still in...!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Reflux...
Labor Signs: Nada! No contractions here!
Wedding ring on or off: Off because I am paranoid...
What I miss: Being able to exercise hard...it is just different now!
What I am looking forward to: Seeing him for the first time!
Nursery: Still a work in progress. It may not finish before he comes, haha. Like it will have everything he needs but I may not get to decorating it how I want. Just got to spread out those expenses! I got a bunch of stuff to get still so that takes priority.
Emotions: Good!
Stupid things I have done: Nothing I can think of.

Question: Name your favorite baby deal websites...ready go! Or favorite baby products related to...
Now that I had my baby shower I am trying to get the best deals on: Aden & Anais swaddle blankets, a Moby Wrap carrier, ErgoBaby carrier (although I've heard they don't really go on sale), Baby Bumbo seat with tray, diapers obviously, burp rags or whatever they are called (I definitely need more than 1 haha), car seat covers, extra sheets, baby shampoo/conditioner/lotion etc., nursing covers, bibs, binkies, bottles, BABY BOY BLESSING OUTFIT (where do you look?), etc...

I have a few 20% off Babies 'r' Us coupons which ROCK by the way, but you can only get your hands on so many...wish I could get more haha!


  1. Ok Ash you look darling. I have to tell you that I don't ever think I have seen your hair curled!!! It's so pretty!!! Love your outfits, and can't believe it's exactly a month from tomorrow. oh my gosh. crazy! xo

  2. you look great! i can't believe you are 8 months already.

  3. You look amazing! Happy 35 weeks!

  4. You look AMAZING!!! I bet you're getting so excited! :)


  5. You have amazing hair - like, seriously. I am jealous! Xox

  6. 35 weeks...you look great! You're almost to the finish line! Yay! So for the swaddle blankets, Target sells the muslin swaddle blankets (4/$20) I believe. The greates blankets ever! For a bumbo seat and tray, I'd check out craigslist. I found a few on KSL for $20. Although, you probably won't need until your babe is around 4-6 months when they have good head control. As far as the other things...etsy maybe? Good luck! Hope your little one makes an on time arrival!

  7. a little birdie told me to tell you to hold off on buying the aiden and anias blankets....


    So excited for you guys!

  8. Sounds like you're doing great! Can't wait to meet your little one!
