34 Weeks and shower pics

We are almost to full term! Im getting so excited, and have yet to get nervous..but I'm sure that will come!

This weekend was great! I was introduced to consignment sales thanks to Mrssouthernbelle! 

On Thursday  night I ran up to a local sale, not expecting much, but found a TREASURE! I found the exact chicco car seat I registered for with 2 CAR BASES! In the store, the car seat and 1 base is $180 and the extra base is an additional $80...well I only paid $90 for all 3! A savings of $170- and it is in GREAT looks brand new! I was/am quite proud of my bargain shopping, and I know my husband appreciates it, since I am not usually this way!

As if saving $170 wasn't enough, I remembered on Friday there is a consignment store near my office. I wandered in there during lunch and found another steal! The snap 'n go stroller frame I registered for ($70 in store) was there for $27! Of course I couldn't resit and called my husband with my exciting news! Another $50 saved! So, I managed to save us $22o over the we put towards the glider we ordered!

Here are some pic from the shower I had last weekend! (33wks)
This beautiful diaper cke made by my friend Jenny! She did such a great job! I plan on keeping it together as long as possible and NOT using the diapers in it! :)

My friend Erin's Mom made these adorable cookies with Brett's name and initials on them! They were yummy and cute.

Me with the lovely hostesses...they really should be professional shower throwers! :)

Me and the lovely MrsSouthernBelle. She took some maternity pics for me and had one framed for the was so sweet! I will post the pics she took when I get them on my computer.

This is me with my mom, MIL, niece, niece's mom, and SIL. Love our family! :)

34 week Update!

I dont feel like I have grown that much in the last few weeks.....either he is stabling out or I am just used to being HUGE! :) But I don't think he has dropped any yet.....which is fine. The Dr. said last week that he is head down so at least he is facing the right he just needs to start engaging!

Also, I think the nesting has started. Over the weekend I cleaned the bathroom, did 3 loads of laundry, did dishes, swept the whole down stairs and vacuumed! This is very out of my norm lately, but I just HAD to get it done! Josh kept telling me not to wear myself out, and that he was going to clean Monday, but I couldn't wait!

*How far along?: 34 weeks!

*Total weight gain?: none this week! :)

  *How big is baby?:  18 in and 5 lbs

*Sex: Sweet Baby Boy!

*Maternity clothes: Yes- and my husbands T-shirts. Some of which are too short for my belly!

*Stretch marks: Nope! Still a tiny red dot on my right love handle but it hasn't changed

*Sleep: eehhh....waking up every hour from 11-2 then only ever few hours until 7. Im just uncomfortable and still having heart burn, numbness in my hands, and reflux :( But surprisingly I dont feel exhausted during the day.

*Symptoms: Feet and ankles still very fat at the end of the day and I have now developed late pregnancy carpel tunnel syndrome! :( My hands ache in the morning and all day long- and I wake up with numb hands in the middle of the night alot.

*Movement: All the time. I think I make him mad because I always find his foot and keep pushing it when he moves it away :)

*Food cravings:  Ice COLD Chocolate milk and apple juice!

*Labor signs:Some period like cramps now and then and I think I am having BH's. I thought it was just Brett stretching out, but someone said thats what BH's feel like so maybe we are getting somewhere!

*Belly button in or out: Flat on the bottom but the top sticks out...

*What I miss: Being able to sit up, taking a deep breath, walking normal, sleeping on my back, sleeping through the nite, not peeing every 5 minutes, my ankles! I think you get the idea ;)

*What I'm looking forward to: My Bday next week! Its on Labor Day so I have the day off!

*Best moment of the week: Finding my treasures at the consignment sale!


  1. SARAH! What great deals! I am proud!!! You look great and I can't beileve you are getting so close! About the sleep - or there lack of - I think that's the Lord's way of preparing you to get up frequently thorough-out the night. But it is nicer to wake up to a baby than a toilet! :) So excited for you! Sorry I missed the shower :(

  2. You look amazing! I wish I could have been at the shower! I have always wanted to make a diaper cake! ~Allison

  3. Thanks guys! :) Kristy- I totally agree about the Lord preparing us for babies! I am so ready to wake up for a baby instead of heartburn! I cant even wait to see his little face! EEEK! :)
