29 weeks (tomorrow)

How many weeks? 29 weeks tomorrow

Size of baby: Size of a butternut squash

Maternity Clothes: yes please! I mostly wear dresses because it's just so much easier. I've added bike shorts under the dresses because...well...I'm sure I don't have to go there.
I have reached the point where my maternity clothes are getting tight. Thus, I don't want to wear anything but stretchy clothes 24/7.

Gender: it's a BOY! Judd Richard

Movement: All the time. And he feels SO BIG. He loves to remind me he is in there. You know, as if I'd forget!

Sleep: Sleeping better these days which I'm thankful for!
What I Miss: This week I miss being active and emotionally stable!!! Ava and I went school supply shopping at WalMart and Dollar Tree the other day and I was DYING by the time we got home. Back sore and knees aching. I mean, ridiculous. All I could think was "and I'm only 28 weeks pregnant. This is NOT supposed to happen yet." I also have been an emotional wreck. I get so impatient with Ava and am so sensitive to anything anyone says. I have cried more this past week than I've cried in a year. Fer reals. I keep apologizing to my family and Aaron just tells me "It's okay. As soon as Judd is out of that belly we will get you some Prozac and everything will be all better." Haha! I love that man.
Cravings: Chocolate milkshakes and avocado. I mentioned on twitter today that I LOVE pimento cheese and avocado sandwiches and a few people were disgusted with that. I don't like pimento cheese in the tubs you get at the store. No WAY! I only like homemade pimento cheese. And lucky for me, my mom made some on Monday. IT IS THE BEST. And I just add a few slices of avocado to it and I die. If you are a fan of either of these....try it together on toasted bread! YOU WILL THANK ME. PROMISE!!!!
Other latest craving is yogurt parfaits. I make it with granola, vanilla yogurt, and fresh blueberries. SO GOOD!

Symptoms: My joints are starting to hurt after working long days on my feet. Still not wearing my wedding ring due to the alergic reaction. Back is hurting at the end of the days. I just am so big and miserable. Already. I cannot wait to have this baby and lose this weight!!

Best Moment this Week: Love feeling him move, but the best moment this week was that it cooled down and we got some rain. YAY!!!! I am so ready for cooler weather.


  1. You look so cute!! Sorry about the pain. I don't miss that at all - remember it's okay to cry about it - I did several times a day with the twins and no one can tell you to suck it up :) He will be here so soon!!

  2. You look great, Ashley!! I think the pain is worse the second time ... I know I was in more pain with Jack Henry than I was with Lydia. And the emotions ... WOW! Maybe it's a boy thing! I still feel like I am dealing with emotional issues. I have to tell Jeff and Lydia sorry all the time. Guess he's used to it by now! Hah!

After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at sheshebows@yahoo.com and thanks for stopping by!
