36 Weeks (Bump #2)

Total Weight Gain: 35 lbs.

Sleep:  Been pretty amazing actually; I'm still all about that tart cherry juice.  The strange pregnancy dreams have begun though, so so bizarre.  And Liam has only been waking up once a night, so a big wahoo for that!

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks all day long.

Food Cravings/Aversions:  Breakfast has just won over my heart!  We had breakfast-for-dinner twice this week, and those were just the best days!  Also mochi!  Especially the mango mochi from Trader Joe's; I'm literally buying boxes at a time!

Staying Active?  Made it the gym to swim my mile once, and then took two pretty decent hikes with Liam.  Feeling good!

Cries: None!  I have just been one happy girl lately!

Nursery Progress:  Putting the finishing touches on it as we speak.  It needs to be finished by Tuesday!  I shared a another peek on Instagram of a special print that looks just perfect in Finn's room!

Liam's Thoughts:  While snuggling in bed the other morning, we talked about how Liam grew in my belly when he was a baby.  He smiled and then "When baby Finn comes back, I want to get back in your belly!"  Such a little sweetheart.  There has also been more talk about "holding ninis while Finn gets milk" and "sharing milk with baby Finn."  It's going to be an adventure, but I know Liam will handle the new changes well.

Best Moment This Week:  My baby sprinkle!  So fun to be surrounded by friends celebrating baby Finn's arrival!  I'll share more later this week!

Looking Forward To: My maternity photos (Tuesday) & getting approved for my water birth assuming I test negative for Strep B (Wednesday)!


  1. You look great! I can't believe Finn will be here soon! That's so great Liam is only waking once a night now. Noah is doing the same now with a combo of crib sleeping and then co sleeping. Are you still needing to co sleep with Liam?

  2. That is a perfectly adorable print! I love it!

  3. Aw Liam knows you need the rest right now! My heart absolutely melted at him mentioning wanting to be back in your belly. Oooooohmygoodness! The sweetness!
    I can't wait to see the nursery! The teases have been fabulous!
    If you test positive, can you still have a water birth but just get out for your rounds of antibiotics?

  4. WOW, 36 weeks, that's awesome!!! You look fabulous, lady!!!!!

    What is mochi?!?

  5. So glad sleep has been good for you lately! I love that nursery print you got too! Can't wait to see the room you guys have put together for him! Have a good week lady! xo

  6. 36 weeks! AH! The last month.... can't believe how quickly your pregnancy has flown by! And you seriously look AMAZING! Hot momma!
    Mango mochi?! What is that?! Sounds so delish!

  7. liam is going to be such a good big brother, he's so adorable! and so is that nursery print, love it. you look great, love that dress - glad to hear sleep has been good to you! hope it continues!

  8. Breakfast for dinner definitely makes for a great day!! We need to do that more often! Can't wait to see more of the nursery -- and maternity photos, yay!

  9. So many exciting things this week for you! Can't wait to hear more about your diaper sprinkle and crossing my fingers for you for your test! Also, can't wait to see your pictures... I'm sure they will be so gorgeous!

  10. Aww Liam sounds SO sweet!! I myself put the finishing touches on the nursery this passed week. I cannot wait to see yours!! I'm right there with you on the breakfast lol Between honey butter biscuits, scrambled cheese eggs and cereal, I just can't get enough. YUM! You're looking fabulous!

  11. Happy 36 weeks! Glad you are feeling good! Can't wait to hear about the baby sprinkle and see the maternity photos!!!:)

  12. Oh, you're getting so close! I cannot wait for the nursery reveal! And to see your maternity photos! And hear all about a water birth! This post makes me want to get pregnant again! :)

  13. Ahhh sweet Finn! Bless those words! So glad you have them documented to remember forever!!!! xx

  14. You're getting so close, you look incredible! Just a perfect baby bump :) makes me excited to dress a bump again one day. I didn't know you were going to do a water birth... did you do a water birth with Liam? I can't believe he's talking about sharing milk with his baby brother, so funny!! That should be a fun transition! Haha

    1. I did not have a water birth with Liam, but I'm so excited about it this time around! I'm hoping the whole baby nursing thing goes over smoothly, but I have a feeling Liam is going to be very interested. Most of his friends that he sees on a daily basis still nurse, so he has not forgotten!


I love reading all your comments!
