Pregnancy Update!

We're slowly getting there!

I have 33weeks done, yay :)

I'm HUGE. Like, really really huge. Looks like I'm about to pop. But no, still at least a month to do!

My back still hurts a lot but my knee is really going better! Unfortunately, in order to achieve that we've stopped taking our daily walk... Good thing we have a balcony!

This picture explains how well I handle house chores...Lots of dishes in the sink, and Lots, lots of things on the floor. I'm about to stick a sign in our entrance door window saying "Watch your feet for toys! some are pointy and might hurt!"
Luckily most are the soft plushes or play food I made, which are just tripping hazard when I go to my frequent bathroom trip at night.

But yeah, that would be my uniform. I don't really have a bra that fits between the "normal" and "huge milk boobs" states. So that cotton band is perfect. And I have tons of elastic band skirts, because those are perfect as well!

Yesterday was my appointment with my midwife. She has a midwife-to-be with her that keeps being impressed of how well we can feel the baby! And of course, first thing when we arrived, Mariann opened a drawer and got their demonstration baby out, one of the cloth diaper out of my diaper bag and started playing! When she got tired of this, she went looking for the stethoscope, lift my shirt and start trying to hear the baby :) Which the midwifes found really wise, ahah!

Apparently my iron level was the lowest she saw in her career :S but I'm confident the stuff I bought at the natural store will work, as it did with Mariann.

Else, everything is perfect! The belly is the good size, my pressure is low but normal (for me). Next appointment in two weeks!

Oh my, can you believe my little lady will be 2?? I'm off finishing that waldorf inspired doll I'm making for my nephew (because I don't like the cloth cubes I made!) I'm almost finished, he just needs clothing now, so you'll probably see him tomorrow!
I really want to make him something he doesn't have, but he's living away and we don't know what he has or not... So I'm pretty sure nobody thought of buying him a doll, and I'm sure my sister will love the idea!
Can't wait to show you!


  1. Andréann, you look gorgeous pregnant! Of course yor belly is big, your new little love is almost here!
    It's great that you have such awesome assistance for the birth time, it makes things so much easier.
    Mariann is a doll, I adored your photo with her, yoiu need to frame that! :o)
    Hope everything goes absolutely right until the day.

    And do show your nephew's doll when it's finished, I bet I'll drool over it.
    Have a beautiful Sunday.

    Kisses and love from us.

  2. Oh, my dear! You look so beautiful! <3 I love the picture of you and your little lady. They grow so fast. I can't believe Azalea will be 2 in August. I have some presents for Mariann and you! I think I might send something even thought I don't have the whole package so that you guys can get something for you birthdays! I am so glad to head that everything is going well. Almost there!! O_O

  3. I third the 'I love the photo of you and Mariann!' So beautiful.

    Hang in there,'s almost time :) My blood pressure and iron count was really low during my two pregnancies too. Just make sure you rest as much as you can.

  4. You look beautiful in your pregnancy outfit. I'm also loving the photo of you and Mariann!

    If I were so close to having my baby, I'd hang a sign on the door that says 'If you mind my mess, you can clean it up!' Hehe.
