My Baby Story: 37 Weeeks and the Crib.

To My Baby Girl:
 
My Beautiful Little Girl, you are growing, moving, shaking and kicking inside Mommy's belly. It is so sweet, good and lively, though at times it hurts. If you were to see my belly even for just half an hour straight, you would see all bumps, peaks and different shapes. It is funny but so cute. We are getting so close, you might even arrive this coming week. But take your time. I want you to be happy and ready and give me Labor when you think it is TIME to make your debut. It seems like everyone enjoyed the photos Dad and I took last Sunday. They did come out beautifully. It was your presence (in my round belly) that made that beautiful. That, combined with our love for each-other and especially our love for you and it was such a fantastic, wonderful Photo Shoot with beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. We both love you so much and are looking forward to welcome you to our home - your home!!

I Love You with all of my Heart & Soul. And I CANNOT WAIT for you to get here!!


How Far Along: 37 weeks.
Total Weight Gain: 20-20.5 lbs or so. It's pretty much all in my belly.
Baby Measurements & Weight: By now you should have gained a little even more weight & weigh close to 3 kg. I am sure you have gained some height, too.
Stretch Marks? I don't see any. My husband can't see any, neither can my Sister in Law. Good thing.
Maternity Clothes? Yes. Definitely.
Best moment this week: Getting ready for your arrival. This week we put the bed together and dressed it inside. It is so very pretty and girly. Everyone I showed it to, loved it. This week, I also purchased some last things that were left both for Mommy & for you so we can be ready for the hospital and your arrival when the time comes. I washed all of your onesies and other clothes for Newborn and 0-3 months and they are currently drying. Just talking about you in general, calling you sweet names and discussing your birth with your Daddy and my In-Laws have been some good, happy moments. But the happiest of them all, is just hearing and feeling your very big kicks and moves inside me. You are one active, healthy, sassy, clever Baby Girl!
Miss Anything? Not really. But I know once I give birth, I will somewhat miss my belly and I will miss feeling and hearing her inside. However, I much rather have her in my arms.
Movement: Yes, DAILY. A lot. You are a gymnast inside there.
Food Cravings: Sweets & Desserts once again. Chocolate. Beans, lentils, bread.
Gender: A Beautiful Little Princess.
Belly button in or out? Out my friends, out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: In general happy because she will be here so soon. But this week I am getting a little bit scared and nervous since time is flying by and this is my first time giving birth, so I guess that's normal.
Looking forward to: Meeting my doctor and discussing My Birth Plan. And as always I look forward to her kicks - they make my day.
 
So, how do you like her crib and how I decorated/dressed it inside?

  2. Her crib is gorgeous! I love the white, pink, and purple (as all little girls should have). The drawers on the bottom are perfect for storing all her adorable little clothes :)

    1. Thanks Heather. Yes, soft pastel colors for a baby & later a toddler. The drawers are not that deep but they will still be good for some storage. =)

  3. Awww very exciting! Her crib is so cute! You may also want to consider a couple black/white toys around if you have them or are willing to get one or two, high contrast toys are good for babies under 6 months for stimulating and gathering attention!

    1. I am so excited, you have no idea. I like your idea about contrasting Black/White toys and will have to look for that. Maybe a Panda or Koala Bear. Thank you for the suggestion.

  6. That’s a lovely crib! I like the pure colors. Also, it’s is so feminine and ever so charming! By the way, please use caution when putting anything into a baby’s crib.

    1. Allie thanks for the compliments and advise. Most of the toys are moved away now that she is in the crib. They were mostly for decoration. =)
