Hoist The Colors Matey!!

She's taking on water!

31 weeks today!!! And there's no doubt that the infamous pregnancy swelling has begun. Okay, I kidd. It begun weeks ago, but I was in denial;)

Holy Toledo! You certainly can't mistake this belly for anything other then being pregnant! But check out my hands y'all! My knuckles have almost COMPLETELY disappeared from this awful swelling--I look like the Michelin man's wife! Ewwwww.

Yup. That about sums it up!

Baby "G" is the size of 4 granny smith apples! She's about 16 inches long and weighs about 3.3 pounds.

She's so big that I no longer feel those swift kicks but rather her pushing and stretching my belly, in a much slower motion. It's the weirdest feeling and looks even more strange, haha! Imagine a small puppy, in a laundry bag, sluggishly moving around. So strange and cool at the same time:)

The urge to meet our little girl and start mommy-hood is getting VERY strong! I've had 3 friends announce the birth of their babies lately, on Facebook, and it makes me so anxious! I want it to be my turn! However-- you still need to bake little one, so don't take mommy literally when I say I'm ready to meet you. Lol.

So a little update on me!

I'm pregnant. I'm swelling. I'm ready to be done.

Hmmm, what else?

I'm sleeping a lot better but still have sleepless nights, some. I'm really tired of waking up with nose bleeds and my gums being sore and yes, bloody. My eyesight is just awful. This is probably influencing some of the headaches I've been getting too. A mild nauseousness has returned this week. I thought I was done with that! Shrugs. Something new to add to the sea of symptoms; my sense of smell has gotten really strong! Really!?! I get this symptom NOW! Oh well, it's only for another 9 weeks. TOPS.

I'm still holding out for no stretch marks but I think I'll be getting an "outie." BOO! For anyone not sure what that is. It's when your belly button pops "out" during pregnancy. Sugar cube's sitting so low that she's bringing my belly button scary close to the surface. Don't ask me why, but those outies make me nervous. I guess I'm afraid that my belly button will stretch so much that it'll bust wide open. LOL! Totally unrealistic but still...

Completely unrelated but the makeover for my new blog has commenced! Head over to this link, Southern Roots & Combat Boots , and become a follower! You don't want to miss out on the exciting weeks to come;) The move will take place, most likely, this week or next. Just as soon as the makeover is installed. Hope to see your lovely faces there! ♥


  1. Well, Becca, no knuckled fingers and all, YOU LOOK GREAT! Seriously, I'm always so amazed at what our bodies were made to do every time I read a post from my expectant blog friends!

    Can't wait to see the new blog!!

  2. The great thing about pregnancy swelling, is it pretty much goes away quickly once you have the baby!

  3. I still think you look great. I'm scared to death about the belly button thing too. What if it never goes back in? Eww.

  4. I swelled so much with my son! It was miserable! I hope your swelling goes down.

    That picture of Dory is so cute, haha!
