BUMP! 31 weeks!

Yesterday was the 31 week mark. Looking at a calendar, I only have September and October Saturdays left! I do what I can to make it seem closer! People have started asking if I'm getting nervous. Absolutely not! I am just so excited to see her and meet her. Of course I want her to stay put until October 27th, she needs to be fully baked! But I can't wait to hold her and kiss her!

My mom and I went shopping yesterday. I got a new maxi dress. It's so super cute! I took my 31 week bump photo it in!

I've noticed that Ellie's movements aren't just quick jabs anymore, but more of a smooth rolling feel across my upper belly. I could literally keep my hand on my belly all day. Feeling Ellie move is one of my very favorite feelings in the world!

Instead of sewing today, I spent the day cleaning and doing laundry. I really need to pick up the sewing pace, but with family coming next weekend, I have a lot of housework to do! I've been slacking lately.

I'd have to say heartburn/acid reflux and swollen feet are my worst symptoms. Everything intensifies in the evening. Luckily, once I make it through the night, my feet and ankles are back to a recognizable size.

I can't wait for my shower next weekend! I can't wait to see my family and am so happy that they are making the trip down for Ellie and me. It really means a lot to me.

My posts are not as often as I'd like, but I either have a lot to do, or I don't do anything at all! Haha! I have a lot to do this week, but one of my tasks in the midst of cleaning is to finish the darn glider makeover! I'd like to have it done so my family can see it! Hopefully I can get that accomplished and show it off!

30 Week Ellie Belly

Today I am 30 weeks! Only 10 more weeks (hopefully) until I can kiss my baby girl! I'm so excited! Elliana has been very active the last 2 weeks. She's been having dance parties in my belly. I love it. I love to feel her move and kick, and I really enjoy watching as my tummy bumps out with her kicks and jabs.


I had a 3D ultrasound back at 19 weeks. Elliana still looked rather skeletal at that point. Here is a picture of her profile back at 19 weeks:

This morning, she looked much chubbier! Even the ultrasound tech said she has chubby cheeks and that she is perfect! I love hearing that she's perfect!

See those cheeks? I can't wait to smooch them! Finally, my favorite picture of the day. Ellie's profile with her chubby cheeks, her little nose, and her TOES up by her head! Haha! So cute!

Only 2 more weeks until my baby shower! I know a lot of hard work and a lot of love is going into planning. My mom is working super hard on the decorations! I can't wait to see everything.

The glider and ottoman make-over has begun. I will post the before and after photos once it is finished. Hopefully I can get the motivation to work on it some tomorrow!

29 Week Bump!

Well, I never posted my 29 week BUMP! And now tomorrow will be my 30 week bump! Oops! I better post it now before it gets skipped.

Last Saturday we celebrated as one of Hubby's childhood friends got married. Between driving down the night before for the rehearsal and dinner and getting home pretty late, and then driving down again for the wedding and reception (and getting home pretty late), this pregnant lady was exhausted. I did manage to have a picture taken though, before collapsing in a heap in the bed. Here is my 29 week Ellie Belly:

There was a photo booth at the reception, and a strip of photos was printed for the guest, as well as for the bride and groom. The copy for the happy couple was immediately glued onto a scrapbook page and put into plastic scrapbook pages. When the night was over, they had a finished scrapbook of photo strips! What a great idea!

I love that Ellie made it into the photo!

Tomorrow is a big day! Not only will I be 30 weeks, but we will get to see Elliana! I haven't seen her since my 20 week anatomy scan and I am dying to see how she's grown! We are going for a 3D/4D Ultrasound in the morning. I've been waiting for this for... oh, about 10 weeks! Hopefully I'll see her again in another 10 weeks, but in real life!!!

I'll post pictures tomorrow!
