With only exactly 30 days left of this pregnancy journey left, I'm finding it hard to talk about anything other than how tired I am. I haven't had any motivation to do any blogging this week but have found all the motivation in the world to hid under our comfy duvet cover, sorry guys!

We're already almost halfway through January! And just as I had assumed, this month has flown by already! Please time, slow down! Not much excitement this week - Jimmy & I have been working a lot in prep for little girls arrival. I'll have roughly 10ishhhh weeks off after she is born so I've been mentally prepping myself for the changes that are about to ensue over those two and a half months off. 😁

That moment when you realize your having a baby, yeahhh that moment was this week. So if you didn't know by now, we're having a damn baby!

Like I mentioned above, my blogging motivation has been at an all time low, so a 35 Week selfie will have to do instead of my normal belly bump. This is one of the rare times this week I actually put some effort into looking semi-decent. I put on some makeup and took a look at my forward facing camera in what felt like ages! 😊 

Later on after posting it to social media, it dawned on me that this is probably going to be one of the last selfies I ever take by myself. Its a bittersweet feeling, not just about a stupid selfie but with all the other 'lasts' that are about to ensue. Gone will be the days I can just get up and go - throwing on flip flops and walking out the door. Gone will be the days that I can shop until I literally drop and do it all again the next week. I'm about to ensure on this new chapter in Jimmy & our lives and I'm so excited but also anxious about the changes. Guess thats the beauty in this journey we call life. 

How Far Along: 35 Weeks and 6 Days 
Total Weight Gain: Still 19lbs as of yesterday, my next appointment is this coming Thursday and the dreaded scale weigh ins! 😖  
Maternity Clothes: I live in leggings and my favorite maternity t-shirts from Target while I'm at home. My scrubs bottoms are officially digging into my belly but I figure I'm too late in the game to buy new ones so I'll just have to have little tie string marks from now on every shift. No shame here people.  
Sleeping: This week I've slept a lot. A new mom that I'm friends with mentioned one day I'll just be a giant slug pretty much and that moment definitely hit me sometime last week. Aside from working, I don't want to do anything except transition from my bed, to the couch, to the tub and then back to our bed. 
Best Moment This Week: We had little girl's bookshelf delivered! 😍 
Movement:  Still moving like a wild animal. She loves to sit under my rib cage so it makes it extremely difficult to keep a steady conversation sometimes.  
Food Cravings: Unsweetened iced tea - oddly, I can't get enough of it! 
Sickness or Health: Aside from the constant sleeping and unable to breathe, I feel good. Just trying to keep moving at work and motivate myself at home these last few weeks.  
Mood: I like to think I've been in a good mood. Jimmy and I have been spending a good quality amount of time together despite us both working. He'll get roughly 2 weeks off when she comes so I'm intrigued how our moods will be for those 14 days! 😂
Pregnancy Wisdom: Baby Morgan is the size of spaghetti squash! 
Weekly Milestone: We finished off buying all of the registry items from Target that we needed and plan on tackling the Amazon registry next week! I'm hastily trying to organize the rest of her room - and yes, I plan to have a nursery reveal  post sometime soon for those who have asked! 💕

I don't have much planned over the course of the next few weeks, just anticipating this little girl's arrival, while not feeling the least bit guilty if she decided to come early. However, my sister's wedding is this coming Saturday so I guess I'd like for her to stay put until at least the 20th so I can carry out all of my Matron of Honor duties! 💜 In the meantime, I'm steadily drinking my raspberry leaf tea, pineapple juice and walking as much as I can at work!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend - until next time!
