Pregnancy Files: {The Bump Week 29}

Best moment this week: This week Drew and I had one last day date before he went back to school. We picked up some handmade stuffed animals for Aiden from a shop you will soon hear about then went to Drew's favorite toy store, King Arthur's Toys then ended the day with ice cream. Drew is a big kid at heart. Long before we were pregnant we would make stops at this toy store just for fun. It was so cute hearing him talk about all the toys he can't wait to buy and play with Aiden someday. It made my heart happy.

Food cravings: Nothing stands out this week, but I am noticing that it is not taking as much to fill me up lately.

Movement: Lots of moving and hiccups! I have been waiting to feel hiccups and was so excited when I felt them. It is the cutest thing ever.

Symptoms: I'm definitely growing quickly and can feel my tendons streeettcchinng. My back is also achy making finding a comfortable position to sleep very difficult. I still feel good overall though.

Nursery: My changing pad cover from ModFox came in the mail and I love it. I've had a few friends stop by this week so I can show them the progress of the nursery and I can't wait to actually start hanging things up on the wall this week! I also found a steal of a deal on curtains at Target! $9.00 a panel on Clearance and they are exactly what I was looking for! I hope to finish up the nursery soon and finally share some pictures.

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
I am getting more and more anxious to meet you. Your Dad has already bought you toys that you probably won't play with for years, but it is so cute watching him get ready for your arrival.  He is already your biggest fan. We can't wait to be parents and we already love you to pieces.

Your Mama

Dear Lord,
Thank you for all the joy that Aiden has already brought me. Help him continue to form perfectly inside me. As I read books and pray about being his mama give me wisdom and peace. I know I have things to work on in myself to be a better wife and mother, help me see the specific areas that I need work and give me the strength to fix them with your power. I can't wait to be a mom.
