a pregnancy update, one year ago, and iPhone pics

37 weeks (on monday)! can you believe it? 

-feeling large.
-still working out for 30 minutes everyday. but i'm pretty sure that if i have to get on an elliptical one more time, i might scream. i miss the treadmill soooo much!
-i am constantly hot! and sometimes i try to turn the thermostat down to 65 (or below) without devin knowing. Poor guy- always freezing. 
-my ribs on the right side are reeeeaaallllyyy sore. The doctor said my liver is getting pushed up against my ribs. yikes.
-I haven't had any cravings this whole time. However, i love "fun" drinks and i think that's because i'm always overheated. For instance: sonic cherry limeades, vanilla diet coke (only once in a while), star buck's vanilla bean frappuccinos, slurpees from seven eleven. Things like that.

I am so happy that it is march! 
And I feel especially grateful today because exactly one year ago I miscarried. I feel soooo lucky to be pregnant right now and for everything to be going so well. Whenever I feel exhausted or like my ribs are getting smashed or I can't sleep, I think about how grateful I am to be experiencing it because it means there's a sweet little baby girl growing inside of me. (and boy is she getting big!)

^^Last saturday we bought a carseat! So we are officially ready. 
Is it weird that I think the carseat is the cutest thing ever? I know it's just a carseat, but seriously it makes me so happy.

^^ I'm completely in nesting mode now and I found this challenge called 40 bags in 40 days from the blog: and I have been having so much fun with it. Basically you make a list of every little area of your house and then each day you "decrapify" and get rid of anything you don't need. It has been AMAZING and I've already gotten rid of 3 bags. (i'm filling target sized grocery bags since we don't have a ton of stuff.) This weekend we're tackling the garage! Wish us luck!

^^ How precious is baby olivia? i think she misses me a lot ;)

^^ Last saturday, Devin went on a paramedic ride along. So from 4pm-4am he got to ride around in an ambulance. Cool huh? Doesn't he look like a paramedic?


  1. Yeah! I can't wait to meet your little one! And I'm glad you got a Chicco. I don't think I will get another car seat ever again.


Thanks for your comment!
