Nursery: I braved IKEA this weekend with some friends and picked out a dresser. Sadly it was out of stock. So I am not sure if that was a sign or not, but at least I have a backup dresser. Really need to get started on some of my painting projects as well.
Emotions:Like a room without a roof :)


  1. Looking awesome mama! Actually look smaller than the past few weeks I think! Brave girl and IKEA! Oh those emotions! And let me warn you (because no one warned me), the couple of weeks postpartum - my emotions were crazy and unpredictable. And I had the craziest dreams/nightmares. Just thought I'd give you a heads up because I seriously thought I was losing it once or twice.

  2. Glowing!!! Getting so close!! Can't wait to see you holding your baby girl!!

  3. Looking good! I'm 3 weeks ahead and been dealing with SPD since 27 weeks and I feel your pain :) But in a few short weeks it will all be worth it!

  4. Looking gorgeous as always! Bummer about the Ikea dresser! So exciting that you're in your 3rd trimester though, she'll be here before you know it :)

  7. I love all of these updates - your responses always make me smile!! Hope you have an awesome girls trip this weekend!!

  8. Love your emotion - like a room without a roof! Lol :)

  9. Beautiful as always! I guess craving fruit is better than craving something like chocolate!

  10. UGH. Your pelvis comment. I swear mine started aching at 18 weeks and got worse and worse. I don't remember that with Mila, but with him it was definitely there. Was never diagnosed with SPD...but sounds very similar to how I felt. Glad you are feeling well otherwise. It's so crazy that you are 28 weeks!!! :)

  11. bahahahaha I have never heard that expression but I love it and now will be using it during common speech because it's perfect! You look so beautiful girl!!

  12. yay the final trimester!! home stretch here we are and you are looking so cute and of pregnant :-)

  13. proud of you for braving ikea.

  14. Third trimester already??? Oh my gosh...I cannot believe that. She'll be here before you know it!
    Sorry that the SPD hasn't subsided. Only a few more weeks dealing with it...you can make it!

  15. Glowing!! You are going to be the most adorable little momma!
