These fun photos were from my little session a few weeks back with Brit and thought they would be fun to share!

Gosh I am behind on these updates! Last week my mom was in town, and with working full time, and Trevor breaking his foot and needing surgery, life has become a tad hectic for me! I am going non-stop and honestly am shocked I am evening finding the time to blog at all. But I am committed! haha I decided to do a combined update for the past two weeks to catch up, and do a more general update like last time without all the specific questions.

 
How big is baby: Baby girl went from a Cucumber to a Pineapple! How on earth is there a pineapple inside me?! haha

SO much has happened over the last few weeks. I hit 30 weeks the day of my Utah Baby Shower! It was fun to celebrate this little girl with all the friends I have made since living here in Utah. I also got to see some people I grew up with that have ended up in Utah, and even my mom came up for the shower. It was a great day and like a giant reunion of sorts! I have so many amazing people in my life and people willing to go above and beyond for me! Thanks to everyone who came out and those who traveled to see me, I appreciate it so much! During week 30 Trevor also went and broke his foot, I wrote all about it HERE, but to sum it up it required surgery and from here on out our summer is going to look a lot different with him not being able to walk up until the baby is born, and me being super pregnant. It isn't the end of the world of anything but it sure puts a wrench in a lot of our plans and things we wanted to get done before the baby arrives. But we will just have to make do! So now I am taking care of me and this baby, and my big baby Trevor who can't do much since he can't bear weight at all on his foot for the next six weeks!
 
My swelling has gotten to the point where I have developed Pregnancy Carpal Tunnel, where my hands are tingly, numb, and weak. Sometimes it can spread up into my wrists and forearm. It is the worst in the mornings, but gets better throughout the day. In the mornings in can be painful just to try and get some toilet paper from the roll because it hurts so much to bend them!!! Thankfully this should go away once I have the baby, but for now it is very annoying. My feet seem to be managing the swelling a little better, I think it is because I have learned how to keep them down a bit with compression socks and taking breaks. Gosh this third trimester stuff is fun, no?! haha
 
So far during week 31 I have noticed a change in how I feel her move. She must be a lot bigger, because her movements are so much more intense, and more uncomfortable. I hesitate to use the word hurt, because that isn't right but, I can feel she is hitting a lot more stuff in there than she was before! I am also really starting to feel the restrictions of my body as I get bigger. We have been doing a lot of house projects and work these days and my body just doesn't move the same way it used to, that's for sure. There is a legit basketball baby belly now! haha While it is hard work I am actually really happy I have something active to do at the end of my days. It has been hard getting myself to the gym, but just doing this housework I feel has made all the difference in making sure I am getting enough exercise! I sit at a desk job all day long, so to come home even though I am tried and do something I can tell is keeping my body a lot stronger than if I was coming home and vegging on the couch. I also read that keeping active can help with the swelling so maybe that's why my feet have got a little better? Who knows! Either way, I am at the point in this pregnancy where I am taking it a day at a time. I cant' believe I only have about 8 weeks left in this pregnancy! The single digit count down is blowing my mind! haha Baby girl will be here SO SOON :)!

  3. I didn't know pregnancy carpal tunnel was a thing! That definitely doesn't sound like a good time. Hopefully it completely disappears once your daughter arrives!

  5. Those Target dresses are THE BEST. I live in my black one. I've had the worst carpal tunnel for awhile now. My wrist hurts so bad and I wake up and my fingers hurt so bad I can't even bend them. I'm hoping it goes away quickly after birth :) Good thing these babies are so cute and worth it!

  6. Pregnancy carpal tunnel is the worst! It's so horrible when even little things are so hard to do! I remember being so envious of people who breezed through their pregnancies so easily but once I had these precious babes, I knew it was so worth it!
