38 Weeks / Leighton’s Nursery

Wow you guys! How has it been this long since I've posted an update? I guess all of you that told me this is just how it goes with the third baby were right, huh? ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's hard to believe, but we are just 8 days away from welcoming Leighton into our family, so it's time I get this last bump date up and share pictures of her nursery, even if it's just so that we have for our own personal memories and records.

Third trimester thoughts....

Sleep is minimal (mainly from not ever being able to get comfortable) and my heartburn is at an all time high.

As for my emotions, those have been very high as well haha. I've definitely been feeling ALL the feels lately and have been really emotional, but I know that this is normal. The boys are acting very excited for her to arrive...Camden told me yesterday, "Leighton is going to come out soon and when she does-she's going to rip your shirt!" ha. Grayson has also been pretty emotional lately and pushing boundaries a bit-I've had some hard talks with him (that have ended with me in tears just because I want him to feel so loved!) due to the fact that he's definitely feeling that change is coming, and that he will no longer be the baby. Before bed, though, he tells me all the people in our family that he loves and he always says "I love baby Leighton!"

Discovered how painful lightning crotch can be this trimester (I never had it with the boys)

I just got put on a 5 day steroid in hopes that this will raise my platelet count so that I'm able to receive a spinal/epidural during delivery. Crossing my fingers that it works!

Baby girl is still super active in there and her movements/kicks HURT sometimes!

How far along: 38 Weeks (in 1 day)
Size: A honeydew melon ๐Ÿ˜€
Name Situation: Leighton Jane
Gender: Girl
Sickness: NONE...so thankful that this ended awhile ago!
Cravings: Anything cold and fresh - my shakes, salads, ice cream too!
Aversions: No real aversions but my appetite towards the end of this pregnancy has been so low
Nursery: I posted a few pictures below sharing her nursery, we are so happy with how it turned out. I love the flower decals on the main wall behind her crib (bought them off Amazon) and the gold details. I wanted it to be light and airy and girly without being "too much" :)
Heartbeat: 150 at my appointment this week
What I'm Wearing: Stretchy shorts and leggings are pretty much the only pants that fit! With summer ending and some cooler temps, it’s been a little bit more difficult to dress the bump or find things that work for this season (compared to summer when you can just wear maxi dresses everyday!)
Movement: She is SO active everyday that now her kicks have started to hurt! She’s busiest at night when I’m relaxing before bed. She also kicks every night when I read the boys books at their bedtime :)
Sleep: Tossing and turning all night pretty much and getting up 1-2 times to go to the bathroom
Weight gain: I've gained about 30 lbs with her so far which is similar to what I gained with Grayson
Workouts: HA - Chasing the boys has been exhausting enough, but I have tried the past few weeks to at least get some walks outside or on the treadmill in.
What we're most excited about: Meeting our daughter for the first time, seeing what she looks like, and introducing her to the boys... ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—
