So I’m actually 31 weeks as I write this post, but I was 30 weeks when we took these pictures.

I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by and how we are just a few short weeks from seeing our little love. I am so grateful he is continuing to grow on track and everything looks healthy. Due to a toddler body slam and a small measuring stomach, I have been able to see him on the ultrasound much more than I expected this late in the pregnancy and it has been a HUGE blessing.

This past weekend, my mother-in-law hosted a beautiful shower for my sister-in-law and I and some of my best friends are celebrating with me this coming weekend. It reminds me of how much I have to be grateful for in our community and the village of people that God has given our family.

How Far Along: 31 Weeks as of yesterday

Maternity Clothes: Yes! At least for pants. I wear my shirts so oversized that most of them still fit, but I cannot stand belly bands and have always carried really low, so I typically only wear jeans with the elastic bands and leggings or dresses. I forgot I would be pregnant in the dead of winter, so layering has been my friend. Here are my favorite pregnancy maternity picks and if you’ve seen me in person, you’ve probably seen me wear more than anything else:

Sleep: Not much recently, but we have had a whirlwind of a week, so between that and the fact it takes me five minutes to roll over, I’m grateful that coffee tastes good again and that I have been able to function off the few hours I do get.

Nursery: We’re almost finished. I am waiting on our chair and a few more pictures to hang on the wall, but most everything else is done! I have nested way harder this round than I did with Cove, so it feels good to have things almost complete. I cannot wait to share it all with you soon!

Weird Pregnancy Moment: Honestly, everything feels kind of blurry right now. I guess it’s still surreal in the sense it’s not just going to be the three musketeers any longer, or that soon these little kicks won’t be there anymore. But I guess I am kind of thankful that I won’t have to cross my legs when I sneeze, haha.

Baby Movement: Yes! So much! But I love it, even when it hurts.

Food Cravings: Not many, and I am thankful to be back to a healthy diet, but chocolate and bagels still have my heart.

What I’m Looking Forward to: Hmm… High waisted jeans… haha. Really though, I am so excited to meet this little babe and see their personality. I’m really excited for spring approaching and I am super excited for another short getaway with Ian in a few weeks for my birthday / our anniversary! 

You can find my dress here (non-maternity). Shoes are from ShopSols. And the hat is actually gifted from my dad (I am obsessed) and it’s a vintage Minnetonka.
