Pregnancy Update: One Month to Go

“You don’t look like it, but somehow, you’ve got a six-pound baby in there.” That’s what the ultrasound tech told me as we left yesterday. Today, I am 36 weeks and am truly thankful to be this close to meeting our little one!


As I mentioned in my life update, I constantly go from I can’t wait to meet him to there is still so much more I’d like to get done! Knowing myself, though, I will always feel like there is more to get done, so I’m trying not to pay attention to it.

Speaking of getting things done, the nursery is getting close! I had a minor panic attack this week when I realized how much gray there is in the room, so I’m hoping to buy a few more things this weekend to add more blue.

I’m starting to hate hearing how tiny I am. I guess people forgot what I looked like before pregnancy. Y’all, I’ve gained over 30 pounds. It wouldn’t bother me except that often when it’s said, the person is implying I’m doing something unhealthy for the baby, and he’s healthy and growing well, thank you very much.

Overall, now that I'm over my cold, I’ve been feeling really well! Sleeping has gotten harder, and I definitely struggle with walking, but I haven’t hit that get this baby out of me stage yet. I have been dealing with some Braxton Hicks, though, which truly feel like a cruel joke sometimes.

This is my last super busy weekend before my due date, and I’m planning on taking it a little easier after that. I do have a few friend dates since I know they will be harder in the next few months!

We got our maternity photos back, and I love them! I’m really excited to share some of my favorites with y’all next week!

  3. You really do look so great though! I hear the same things about not looking like I'm this far along with twins, but I've really gained so much weight this pregnancy! I just have to tell myself that it's all worth it for the babies, and as long as they're healthy and I'm healthy we're all good! I can't wait to see what your nursery looks like and your maternity pictures!

  5. What a gorgeous photo of you! You look adorable, no matter your size. My best friend only looked like she was five months pregnant at full term, while some people are constantly (horribly) asked if they're having multiples. (Pregnant women can't win can they? Always open season for ridiculous comments.) He'll be here so soon!!

  8. I carried both my pregnancies really small - I have a long torso so I think there's extra room for them to grow up and down rather that OUT - But I got so tired of that comment too.
    It's so exciting that you're so close to meeting the little one! I hope you have a productive yet restful last month of pregnancy.

  10. You look beautiful! Also don't listen to others - my mum was tiny and had the smallest tummy carrying all of us. People told her she looked like a straw that swallow something. She laughed it off and had some healthy babies. So very excited for you!

  15. um, screw people if they are saying nasty things like that. as if you'd do something to harm your baby. you look amazing and all that matters is that your baby is healthy. jeepers people. also, there is no such thing as too much grey so don't freak out ;)

  16. I can't believe you are already so close! You look amazing, and I don't know why people think commenting on someone's size is an appropriate thing to say!
