Today is my last day at work for 12 weeks! We had yummy celebratory donuts that Lacey brought in (I was craving Krispy Kreme). I thought I'd take a look back at the pregnancy and share some thoughts and photos from the past 9 months
Our first doctors appointment wasn't until July 15 at 9 weeks. It felt like a million years waiting for the confirmation appointment.
Michelle and James made all the shirts and I came across this baby bump shirt the other day. I should have put it back on, but there is NO way it would fit.
From week 6 until week 17-18 I was not feeling so hot. It was an all day yucky feeling and I was unable to cook or do anything like I was used to.
Most of my weekends were spent laying down, researching and reading. Thankfully it went away and I have been feeling pretty great ever since!
David jumped into survival mode and started accomplishing items that have been on our to-do list like home renovations. We wanted to do something for us before we would be devoting our everything for the baby.
It was really fun and I'm glad we did it.
I thought I was getting so big, but man was I wrong lol. I don't look 30 weeks pregnant here.
I was also so excited to get maternity photos done to remember this time.
One of our favorite projects was the evolution of Max's nursery. We started just with custom bedding and colors (blue, aqua and lime green) and when my sister told us that the boy in the wild things book was named Max we thought it was really cool. We began researching how we could incorporate various pieces into the room. David's motto on this project was apparently go big or go home, because he took it to the next level with customized vinyl wall decals which he created and placed on the walls. I love the personal touches.
Here is a picture from 9 weeks. I can't believe I thought I was getting a stomach at that point.
10 week belly shot.
This was from this morning, so just about 39 weeks! I'll take a full length one for our final days left. I think I will miss feeling Max move all the time the most. I have really enjoyed that and think I will be using my moby wrap a lot to keep him close. I can't wait for my mom to come tonight and for us to meet Max on Friday. I'll post my last survey tomorrow at 39 weeks!Thanks for following in our journey!
