It’s diaper bag reveal time! I went with…
I chose this for a great number of reasons, but here are my top few:
1. Big. I hear when they’re tiny babies, you take the entire nursery with you everywhere for a while.
2. Classic design. I love the simplicity of it. No crazy patterns.
3. Pockets. Loads of pockets. :)
4. Color. I LOVE IT
5. Husband friendly. Granted, he would carry anything and not care, but I love that this doesn’t scream “foofy diaper bag!!”
6. Straps. It has both handles and a cross body adjustable strap which is handy!
I just love it. I’ll carry it for a bit until he baby needs less “stuff” and then I’ll switch to a smaller bag. Perhaps a tote. Perhaps THIS tote. :)
Third Trimester Updates:
I am officially 29 weeks along. 73 days to go until October 10. We shall see if the little guy will visit us early or hang out until his due date. Morning sickness? Check. STILL?? Yep. Every day. I guess that means the little guy is taking a LOT of my nutrients, so that’s good for him!
Weight gain and swelling? Eh, I mean yes with the weight gain, but I don’t feel nearly as bloated and gross as I did at the beginning of the pregnancy. My tiny feet swell a bit a night, but Ian rubs them until I fall asleep each night. (Have I mentioned that I have the BEST HUSBAND EVER???)
Cravings? Right this second-peaches. I’ll eat like 3-4 peaches a day. Although all of that fuzz makes my tongue feel weird, haha. I also love Coke, but I need to consume that in moderation. I also eat the sushi you’re allowed to have while pregnant at least a few times a month with a fellow preggo friend, and that’s always fun.
Energy level? High in the morning good in the afternoon, but I DROP after like 6 or 7pm and chill laying down (on the couch or in bed) from that point on each night. I get a lot of sleep still which is great. Getting as much sleep in these days as possible.
Nursery is almost completed, and I promise to show pictures once it’s ready. :)
Baby update: kicks like crazy, and is either napping or kicking, stretching, or punching me constantly. He is all or nothing, I read him books and sing to him and he seems to like my voice. (Most precious thing ever.)
Ian is TOTALLY ready for the new little guy. We call him by his name (not really telling many people) and that makes this a bit more real. But it’s still surreal to walk into his nursery and think “I am going to have a CHILD. My own BABY.” Blows my mind. Craziness.
Other than that, I’m so ready for October to be here. I’m about to start on the baby shower every weekend in August trend for a month, so that will be fabulous!
I’ll keep you posted.
Have a fun day everyone!
