Bump Month in Review

I'm not going to promise that I can remember everything that happened since the 34 week bump update...but we'll try to cover the highlights!

May 10 I was at 36 weeks and this was the month of showers! I'll have to post separately to showcase all the wonderful friends and family that showered us with amazing love and gifts. We certainly are blessed!

So, at 36 weeks I started to feel rather large and the hot flashes started coming :). I bought a little fan to place on my desk at work and it's usually turned on just after lunch. I thought surely everybody was getting hot as the sun poured in our windows, but nope. They assured me it was just the preggo in me. I finally bought a few other clothing items and have gotten quite a bit of use out of them. My favorite and most comfortable is this dress from Target:

I'm pretty sure I've also worn these flip flops almost every day over the past month. I have them in comfy!

My check up at the doctor was the same as usual - good blood pressure, good heartbeat, no sickness, feeling baby girl kick kick kick! However, my feet did start swelling a little bit at this point. Trey certainly recognizes the "rub my feet please!" look these days.
...and the 36 wk bump:

Last Thursday was 38 weeks and time has absolutely flown by. My mom and sister and niece helped get the nursery organized and we are pretty much done! Just waiting on some things that I ordered to come in. If you know me at all, you wouldn't believe how laid back I've been through this entire pregnancy...and such a procrastinator! I had the fabric picked out for the glider and new exactly what I wanted and needed to order in January but didn't get around to actually doing it until a couple of weeks ago. Yikes! So, we're waiting on that and a couple of other things. I did sew and get the curtains hung though...finally! Pics to come.

Dr.'s check up same as 36...everything good and feet still swelling a little bit! Other than that, everything has been wonderful. I'm sleeping well and going to the bathroom what feels like every 10 minutes. boo. She has turned and is ready to make her entrance into this world! Also, we FINALLY decided on a name! Our little girl is...

(Reagan - "strong" ... Elise - "consecrated to God")

Hooray! It's so great to finally have a name! And...a belly pic:

Now, I'm at 39 weeks and we are just waiting on Reagan to arrive! I've organized all my leave requirements for work and am just trying to finish up the last of my projects before I leave for great does that sound?!!! Dr's appt = good as usual. I'm dilated to a 3 and effaced 80% - a woo hoo! Not feeling contractions yet but I'm thinking next week she'll be ready to come. Official due date is June 10, next Sunday...we'll see! Any bet takers?!


  1. Woo hoo!!! I'm so excited to see miss Reagan. You look adorable. Post some nursery pics!

  2. You look great, Angie! And her name is gorgeous! I just wanted to tell you that our little girl's middle name is Elise. I love love love that name! We debated for a long time making that her first name. Anyway, I hope that you have a great rest of the pregnancy! Almost there!


  3. Love her name, you look wonderful, and I'll bet she comes any second!! Already dilated to a 3!!

  4. So exciting! Can't wait to know when she is born and she her sweet face! I love the name!! And I can't decide whether she will take her time like her Dad or be ahead of the game like her mom....:)
