Due Date Week

|  39 Week Bump  |

This week is my due date week!  It doesn't even seem real that baby Smith could arrive any day now.  I haven't felt any contractions or big changes so I don't think he will be arriving on his due date (March 27th).  Matt and I both think he will decide to come late, but we will see!  The nursery is pretty much all done (photos coming soon) and the car seat is hooked up and ready to go.  We had an ultrasound yesterday and he is about 7 pounds 11 ounces right now.  We have a favorite name picked out, but probably won't make an official decision until we meet him. 

On a random side note: yesterday, my friend and I made freezer crock pot meals.  If you haven't heard of these, look them up on Pinterest!  This is a great idea for easy and healthy weeknight meals.  Just by planning ahead, I spent less money at the grocery store than usual and a couple hours prepping 8 meals that I am storing in the freezer to be thrown in the crock pot.  Seriously, check it out!

Those are the latest pregnancy updates!  In the meantime, I will be puttering around the house and finishing up last minute errands, slathering on Mama Mio Tummy Rub Oil (I love this stuff) and wearing stretchy clothing.  Oh and forgetting what I am talking about mid-sentence... preggers brain does exist my friends!

Maternity Photos

While daydreaming about taking our maternity photos, I had visions of frolicking through the forest, bare foot like it was the middle of July or something?  Turns out that taking photos in March (in Portland, Oregon) doesn't typically call for sunshine and blue skies.  Instead of roaming around the forest, we pulled the car over and took some quick photos on the side of the road... while getting drenched by the rain.  I was determined to wear my wedding dress (now shortened), even though it's a little ridiculous to be wearing a white dress out in the rain.  You might be wondering how I was able to fit into my wedding dress at 37 weeks pregnant.  Well, the beauty of this dress (other than the fact that it is made of yummy french silk lace) is in the bias cut of the fabric.  Magic, I tell you!  

A big thanks to Matt's cousin, Colleen who got soaked in the rain while taking these photos of us at 37 weeks pregnant!  We are so thankful that we will have these to look back on and show baby Smith someday.  I can't believe how soon he will be here!
