WIWW: Baby Update + Link Up

I feel like it has been forever that I've gotten dressed decent enough and been able to take pictures. I am loving this bump of mine, and will be sad when I not longer have him in my belly all day, but we are definitely gearing up to meet Mr. Graham-man.

I figured I'd do one of the traditional updates today just to change things up!

How far along: 29 weeks + five days

Baby size: Almost the size of a cabbage and a little over 3 pounds!

Sleep: This whole pregnancy I've been sleeping like a champ. I've had a few days here and there where my hip pain caused me to toss and turn, but I'd say 90% of the time I am out like a light. I haven't even been waking up to pee because I'm so exhausted! My friend let me borrow one of those Snoogle pillows and it has been the best thing ever. I have no idea why I didn't get one from the beginning.

Belly button: Okay, I don't think I've ever admitted this on my blog, but I have a serious belly button phobia. I hate, HATE belly buttons. Not the look of belly buttons, just when mine gets touched. I cannot touch it and I hate if other people Chris touches it. It makes me want to vomit! So, with that said, my button is currently flat and I am TERRIFIED for when/and if it pops out! Ya'll, that is the only thing that has truly stressed me out. I cannot fathom the thought of my button popping out and possibly being touched, grazed, or bumped in to. It makes me queasy just thinking about it!

Maternity clothes: Leggings all day, every day. I'm not even going to try any other pants. I've managed to wear quite a few of my non-maternity tops, but picked up a few more last weekend that I found super cheap at Ross. Basically everything that still fits is on repeat week after week.

Movement: He is moving around like he is trying to escape! He definitely loves when I eat apples and usually starts wiggling around 7:00am. I have yet to have him wake me up at night. Like I said, I'm not sure much can wake me up these days!

Cravings: Pancakes and waffles!! I was also craving a McDonalds double cheeseburger after church on Sunday, but we were closer to a Taco Bell, so a half pound combo burrito it was :)

Symptoms: I hate to write anything here because I know that could be jinxing it, but I really feel great about how this pregnancy has gone. Other than our hiccup a couple weeks ago, things have been going pretty smooth. I was having pretty bad back pain, but after going to the hospital and getting a shot to stop labor, I realized those were contractions and not actual back pain. I haven't had any back pain since receiving that shot! Praise God!

Things I've anticipated like heartburn, swelling, etc. haven't shown up yet, but I know things can change overnight, so I am taking it one day at a time.

Wedding rings: On! Some days I might eat too many chips and have to take them off, but as of right this moment, they are on.

Looking forward to: We have both our showers in February, so we are looking forward to putting the final touches on his nursery and stocking up on the essentials.

We also have some classes at the hospital scheduled that I really feel will get us in baby-mode.

As of this coming Friday, I will officially be 30 weeks! My doctor won't let me go over 41 weeks, so we have a maximum 11 weeks lefts before G gets here!

Now for the link up!

Easy Overnight Oats || Pinterest Success

Sometimes we try recipes off Pinterest and they turn out terrible. Actually, the majority of times I try a recipe off Pinterest it turns out mediocre. 

Finally I can say that I've found a recipe I love!

This overnight oats recipe has been on repeat for a week now. So far I've only added strawberries to mine, but there are so many versions that I can't wait to try out! I skipped the chia seeds (for allergy purposes) and I have found that I like slightly less than 1/2 a cup of coconut milk. I add the strawberries in when I am making a batch, but also add more on top each morning.

I can't say I've eaten healthy this pregnancy, but at least my breakfast choice is taking a turn in the right direction :)

Monday, you're here again. That means we are one more Monday closer to meeting Graham man! 

Friday night we had date night at one of our favorite burger places. I hate waiting at restaurants, so we usually have casual Friday and Saturday nights and then go to the more popular restaurants during the week. As I look at that picture all I can think is, "how lucky am I?" #blessed

You've read that my only craving thus far has been pancakes. The craving has NOT let up. I could eat them for every meal. Chris even mentioned how in seven years, he has never seen me make pancakes, yet this week I've made them twice already!

Sunday I had to run a quick errand and decided to stop by Ross. Many of you suggested their maternity section, but I have not had much luck...until yesterday. They had several really comfortable and cute tops for super cheap!

Now it is Monday and I am already looking forward to the weekend. But, let's make today great, shall we?
