MILESTONE! 35/35. Plus a Mommy Makeover.

How far along: 35/35! That's 35 weeks down and 35 days to go as of yesterday, so today I am one day closer. Thank god.

How big is baby: Giant. The Bump changed up their fruit system so I get a new one every week now and this week, B is a butternut squash. I wish she had the temperament of a butternut squash...instead I feel like I'm gestating an angry raccoon.

Total weight gain: I don't want to know.

Sleep: I didn't think it could possibly get any worse. And then it did.

Maternity Clothes: Yep.

Food cravings : Chocolate milk.

Food aversions: Nothing.

Challenges: Moving. Sitting. Smiling.

Movement: *cries*

Boy or Girl?: Hopefully still a girl.

What I’m looking forward to: Guess.

What I miss: Ugh.

Next appt: Next Wednesday. GBS test! Wheeee!

Obligatory belly pic complete with hip new mom hair!:

Now about my hair. M and I paid a visit to M's sister (my sister-in-law and Betty's aunt) J, who just so happens to also be my very awesome hair stylist. I have been feeling more than a little down on myself lately, what with all the largeness that is going on over here. I was hoping that maybe a little makeover would help with my self esteem.

So J cut some bangs again (she did them for me once before and I loved them) and trimmed a little off the bottom as well...this pregnancy has my hair growing like a weed. Then we started making plans for whatever fabulous dye-job we are going to try after B arrives. It really helped! While I still feel like a big pile of hot garbage for 90% of the day, I look at least a little more like a hot mom now. :)

She probably won't read this, but she really is a lifesaver. Betty is lucky to have such a cool aunt!


  1. LOVE the bangs! You look great.

  2. Your hair looks awesome! I love that smiling is a challenge. I did not LOVE pregnancy, so I feel you. Hooray for the homestretch!

  3. L.O.V.E. the bangs. I need a hair cut. I may have to steal yours.

  4. LURVE the bangs! You're lookin' hot momma!!!

  5. You look great, girl! I love the bangs on you :)

  6. You look great, girl! I love the hairdo. Almost there!

  7. Whether you believe it or not you always look like a hot mom! I love the bangs, love them! I keep debating the snip but in the end I think I might have to wait. Weather is warm here already and we know how fun "sweaty" bangs can be. The cut looks great and I can't wait until you can be comfortable again and holding little Betty in your arms instead of your belly.

  8. the bangs are AWESOME!! i'm always too chicken to cut them, but they look great!

  9. You look great, you obviously look pregnant since you are! I love those bangs on you, very hot mom!

  10. You look so good. Seriously it looks like you're just smuggling a watermelon. Your legs, arms and booty are still in great shape. What's your secret? Because I'm going to be needing it. :-)
    Love the new look. So excited for you!

  11. HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! I am so happy to be here at this blog with you. And of course, you know me.... I pissed myself when I saw your due date, because that was my dd with Jason (also his birthday), which if I remember correctly is just days before your own birthday!! Whoop, Whoop! Congrats, my friend.
