The Final Leg

The final leg of this lengthy marathon called pregnancy. Last trimester…down to the last 5-6 weeks or 38 days.

Here is a little recap:



I know I am looking mighty fine in the most recent one. You’re welcome. Had to document the good and the bad 😉

I was thinking about how I wanted to document my pregnancy besides pics. I have plenty of week-to-week pics but I haven’t ever wrote down my experience. I think it is something I want to do so that when my kids ask me how my pregnancy went I won’t get confused if each one ends up being different. So I am doing one of those fun little Pregnancy Q & A’s.

How far along: 34 weeks and 5 days — 35 weeks 🙂

Total weight gain: Last time I checked I was around 24 lbs. But that was like a few days or so ago…I am trying not to be too concerned with it. I am just hoping to stay under 35 lbs total weight gain. But as long as my babe is healthy I will be fine.

Maternity clothes: I fought that for so long…then I gave in and that was the best decision! Maternity pants are divine. I live in stretchy dresses and skirts because they are so easy. As for my workout attire…I couldn’t convince myself to go buy any maternity workout clothes.

What do you do to workout during pregnancy: 1st trimester I kept it basically the same with my running, lifting and going to RIPPED class. 2nd trimester I could feel myself not being able to run or bounce around as much so I just took it a little easier. I stopped doing normal ab workouts. Right now I am getting to the gym like 3-4 times a week and I do 20-30 mins of cardio (elliptical) then I do some lifting for my arms and then no weight leg workouts. If I do any abs I only do oblique workouts. I also still go to a RIPPED class but I am doing less weight and WAY less bouncing around. I have found I enjoy a little prenatal yoga from time to time.

Stretch marks: None yet! I am hoping and praying that continues.

Sleep: I love it. I need it. But I hate it. When I wake up to go to the bathroom I have like the cringe type pain in my pelvic area — I think it is from sleeping on my sides but I am no doctor 🙂

Best moment(s) of this month: Going to the temple endowment for Lexi. Cancun trip with the Ang’s & Ashworth’s. The Ang wedding. Before Ty left on his trip to San Diego, I told him to give some love to his baby girl…when he did I said “say bye to dad”. He was like “weird…” It was precious, him realizing he is going to be a papa so soon. Also, this little babe was kicking and moving around crazy like one day, Nolan & John were watching her in awe. It was cute.

Best moment(s) of this week: I got baby girl’s fitted crib sheet ready! And made some cute bows for her…it’s getting real.

Miss anything: running, sleeping on my back, sushi, working out like normal and having smaller boobs

Movement: yes she is an active little girl. I feel like if I have anything with sugar she is bouncing around in there…and she is always very active at night

Food cravings: nothing really. 1st trimester was anything savory and clementines. Then 2nd was just to not be hungry or full. Same thing now so I don’t overdo it or I know the consequences now…heart burn & feeling like I can’t move.

Anything making you queasy or sick: no actually. Haven’t had any sickness at all this whole pregnancy.

Have you started to show yet: OHH yes. Of course. I would be worried if I hadn’t (check those pics above 😉 )

Gender: girl 🙂

Name picked out: Well we do but I am going to wait until she arrives to see how I feel about it. IF we choose something entirely different I am coming back to this post to have it down what it COULD have been.

Labor signs: none that I have noticed. I question if I have had Braxton Hicks because I feel like my stomach gets really tight randomly but then I convince myself that is just her pushing against me really hard.

Belly button in or out: OUT. so out. I had an outie before pregnancy — again check those pics 😉

Wedding rings on or off: on

Happy or moody most of the time: I haven’t found myself THAT moody or emotional. I feel happy majority of the time.

Looking forward to: Baby shower. Reading books, sunshine –relaxing. Our house being built & finished. AND of course this sweet little girls arrival.

Pregnancy Must-Haves: Well I have found that I really enjoy my pregnancy pillow that my husband gave to me as a gift 🙂 At first I was not into it…but then once I really gave it a try I haven’t stopped using it. Stretchy dresses/skirts are what have kept me sane. SO easy to put on and most people think I actually am trying to look dressed up {I just do it because it is easiest to put on and its breezy}. Belly band was used for the awkward stage of not fitting into my pants very well but not wanting to buy maternity pants yet. I love ASOS for all their adorable maternity dresses and tops. H & M has great maternity leggings and jeans for pretty good price. I have also decided that bras with wires are awful once the belly gets too big, luckily I had a nursing bra gifted to me and it has no wire. It is heavenly. I believe it is from Target. Love that place.

This trip was a blast. We had so much fun. I did a whole bunch of nothing but read, be in the sun, play games, sleep, eat and be walked around by these silly fools 🙂 Great way to start our summer and go out as a family of 2 — 38 more days (or so) til our life changes for good!
