One of my favorite things about the blogging community, and I should really just start saying social media community, because let's face it, it isn't just about blogging anymore, is meeting so many talented and creative people! I have been able to collaborate and work with so many awesome companies and people. One of those people is Roxana! She has been helping me with my Pink Blush Maternity Collaborations over the last few months, and so when she wanted to get some maternity shots of me, of course I obliged. We always have a blast together, and I love when she brings her sweet baby Clara with her. That gorgeous little girl with a head full of hair would make anything in life better. Anyways, remember how much I loved this dress from ASOS? Well even though I am already about to bust out of it *awkward face* I figured it was perfect for the location she wanted to shoot, the Salt Lake! And it was such a gorgeous night and the sunset was killer and Roxana rocked it of course. Infact, this is where Roxana and I originally met, she was helping her talented sister-in-law out when they did this dreamy shoot with me!
Anyways, I thought I would share these images along with my 29 Weeks Pregnancy Update. I also decided to just do a general update and forego some of the repetitive questions this week! :)
How far along: I am 29 weeks and 5 days!
How big is baby: Baby girl is as big as an Acorn Squash!
This week I had a doctors appointment. I look forward to these appointments because it means I get to hear that heart beat again. I just LOVE hearing her heart beat! That morning before going in she was moving more than I had ever felt her before! It was so fun! I had worn a pair of leggings that I guess have gotten a little tight, haha, and I was having a hard time trying to find a spot to put them that felt comfortable. Wearing them below the belly was making me sick, wearing them above the belly was apparently annoying baby girl. Every time I brought them up over my belly she started moving around and "freaking out" and when I would put them back down she would stop. I guess was in "her space" and is was hilarious! Anyways, at my appointment my doctor asked if I had changed anything with my diet or exercise because my weight gain trend looked much better. What a relief! haha I honestly hadn't changed a thing, and she mentioned again what she said earlier when I had gained so much in a short period of time that sometimes women put on more during different stages and it usually all balances out. This made me feel a lot better! She estimated I will put on around 40-44 pounds, which ironically is exactly what my mom put on with all six of her pregnancies. We have always been so similar so that made me smile. She told me that I passed my glucose test with flying colors *yay for that fiasco* and we proceeded to start talking about how I need to look into pediatricians and get registered for labor and delivery.... Oh man, at that moment it hit me how close I am getting. We are preparing for the last leg here! I even booked out my doctor's appointments for the rest of my pregnancy! I am going to be starting my hypnobirthing classes as well and can't wait to really start mentally and physically preparing myself for delivery!
I also am starting to notice some slight "Pregnancy Mask" on my face. My skin has definitely gone through some changes during this pregnancy! Hormones, got to love them. I haven't really had acne or anything, but the texture and pigmentation has changed. It is just different and unpredictable. When telling my mom about the pregnancy mask she mentioned she had some of that too, of course! Remember how I said my pregnancy has been very similar to hers?! haha Anyways, I guess I shouldn't be surprised, I have pretty sensitive skin, and I do have the linea nigra. In fact I need to make sure I get a picture of my stomach sometime for keepsakes as well. I used to think taking pictures of your bare pregnant belly was weird but now I totally get why women do it :) haha
Anyways, it has been a pretty exciting and busy week! I am feeling baby girl move lot more which makes me happy, obviously. I think Trevor will probably be able to feel her one of these times now, he just needs to catch it! He has had a few missed opportunities. She is getting bigger every day and I FEEL it so I know soon enough he will have plenty of opportunities. I am SO excited to meet her. She needs to just get here already!
