38 Week Bump Date & Baby’s Hospital Bag

I can already hear the responses, “Hang in there! She will come when she’s ready,” “The average first pregnancy last 41+ weeks,” “She will be here before you know it,” “You’re only 38 weeks; the longer she’s in there the better off she’ll be.”

I get this. I do. I just want to hear, “Katelyn, you are having a baby right now!”

We’re in the home stretch and it’s INSANE to think that we have just about three weeks left (I’m 36 weeks and 4 days) to go before we meet our little one.  Most everything is wrapped up and we’re just focusing on resting, preparing, and taking in these last few weeks of the bump.

34 Week Bump Date

34 weeks down, 6 (ish) to go! With only six weeks left, I am trying to get as organized as possible. We semi-tackled  her nursery this past weekend. We put together her crib, dresser, chair and started putting up decorations. My dad is coming over this weekend to paint her little room. I can’t wait to show you guys a sneak peak once that’s finished.

The next two weeks are packed as we celebrate our first anniversary [eek!!!!] and Sean’s birthday. After that, the true countdown is on. I’ve only done one previous bump date before, but you can read it here.

Pregnancy Must-Haves

Happy Monday Friends! It’s a quiet morning in our household as we wait for the pest control people to arrive (#homeownerprobs). I can’t believe I am already 32 weeks pregnant…time is winding down fast, I wanted to share some of my favorite items I’ve used throughout my pregnancy. There haven’t been a ton of things I’ve felt that I absolutely NEEDED during this pregnancy. I’ve managed to make non-maternity clothes fit for a long time and I really didn’t have much morning sickness. However, here’s the list of items that I have found myself reaching for again and again in the past eight months.

TGIF! It has been one heck of a week and this momma is looking forward to the weekend. Our pool is finished, we have grass, AND it’s supposed to be sunny all weekend. [insert the praise Jesus emoji hands here]

In other news, we take our maternity pictures this weekend!!! I literally have the best photographer ever and we’ve been trying to schedule a date for the past week, but the weather in Houston has been so unpredictable. I can’t wait to show y’all them when I get them back.

30 Week Bump Date

Dress: Target: Sold Out | Similar | Similar

To think that I only have 10 weeks left to go is shocking. It feels like yesterday that I experienced all the emotion and shock of seeing two pink lines. We have such a crazy schedule the next couple months. We have her family baby shower, 1st anniversary and Sean’s birthday, she’s going to be here before I know it. With all that being said, so much seems to be happening each and every passing week.  So today is a quick update as I hit the 30 week mark.

Tips on Hosting a Gender Reveal Party

Hey there! Happy Friday! We made it through another week…why did this one go by so quickly? I’m sure it has something with trying to squeeze something in every day after work! Now that baby girl’s gender is revealed, I wanted to do a post on throwing a Gender Reveal Party. If I had extra spare time, planning/throwing parties is by far one of my favorite hobbies. My mom loves planning as well, so this was a special event we could plan together.
