30 weeks

(of course I'm wearing a jumping&jellybean headwrap! :)  

How far along? 30 weeks!  Just 10 to go :)
Total weight gain: 18 lbs
Maternity clothes? Need to get some asap.  I'm back into my VS v neck tees that I over wore in my last pregnancy haha they are so comfy! 
Stretch marks? Same answer as last bumpdate ha 
Sleep: Depends on the night!
Best moment this week:  Picking baby girls name!  
Miss Anything? Not really... But I'm not going to lie, I'm definitely wishing I could indulge in some pumpkin beer!
Movement: Baby girl is a little ninja...  She'll be so quiet and then will randomly karate chop into my ribs. 
Food cravings: Gatorade.  & the simpler the food the more I like it... Wishing I could live off of cereal for the rest of the pregnancy :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat.  I'm returning to my vegetarian ways like during Beckett's pregnancy.
Gender: Little Lady
Labor Signs: Some Braxton Hicks here and there.
Symptoms: Headaches, indigestion and leg cramps.
Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Been pretty happy!  So much to be thankful for :) 
Looking forward to: Getting into our new house!  Painting is done (can't wait to share it!  We made some pretty bold moves :))  & I cannot wait to decorate baby girls nursery!  

I posted on Instagram yesterday that we were planning on sharing Baby Alpert's name!  We are very excited to announce that Baby Girl Alpert has been named

My husband picked this name as soon as we put it on the table :) he's been referring to her as Ellia for the last few months and just recently I caught myself calling her by that name! It just fits :)

Hello 3rd Trimester!

[will post picture soon :)]

How far along? 28 weeks! Cannot believe we are in the final stretch! 
Total weight gain: 15 lbs.  
Maternity clothes? I really need to go shopping...  Not fitting into anything!
Stretch marks? I think I might have one but I'm not sure... Sometimes I see it & sometimes it disappears haha
Sleep: It depends on the night!  I've started having trouble getting comfortable and I have to get up to pee like a million times a night.
Best moment this week:  It's been a pretty relaxing week!  I absolutely love seeing the progress on our house and I can't wait to start buying things for baby girls bedroom!
Miss Anything? Not really :)
Movement: It totally depends on what I eat ha  Like the other day, I went on a sugar binge and ate 2 popsicles and a bag of gummy peach o's... Little EllieBellie (this baby has so many nicknames it's ridiculous) was moving around like CRAZY.  But when I make smarter choices and eat veggies or well balanced meals, her movements are a little more subtle :)  It makes me want to eat sugar ALL the time, I love feeling her movements!
Food cravings: Meh.  Nothing ever really sounds good.  Besides Gatorade.  I freaking love gatorade! Oh and lemon everything... especially lemon cookies :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Like I said above, nothing ever really sounds good. 
Gender: Little Lady
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Headaches, indigestion and I feel so bloated this pregnancy.  
Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Been pretty happy!  So much to be thankful for :) 
Looking forward to: So many things!  Looking forward to upcoming Fall holidays, especially Halloween :)  Also excited for Thanksgiving soley for black friday shopping... I'm totally going to use being 38 weeks pregnant to my advantage in long lines ;) 
Also, can't wait to be in the new house and start getting baby girls nursery put together (so far I haven't decided on much besides possible color schemes.  We have cool tones in most of the house so maybe pink, grey & white? or baby blue, grey & white? I need to figure this out asap)  & we can't wait to hear baby girls heartbeat at our next appointment :) Lots to look forward to!
