29 week update!

I have arrived at the third trimester and at this time I feel like I have been pregnant forever.

You are kicking, you are getting the hiccups, and jabbing me with those elbows of yours. 

You can now hear my voice when I speak to you, and you are continuing to grow strongly, healthy, wonderfully and perfectly.

Darling, you are perfect!

This pregnancy has been tiring and quite different from my first. Walking has been rough, and I have been feeling like my brain is well, just not there! 

But it's worth it. Every inch of it. I've been called to give you life and I consider it as the biggest privilege. 

I'm so blessed and humbled that God saw us fit to give us two sweet little girls! And not one day do I want to take it for granted. You my dear are a blessing.

Soon, you will be here. And once again I will love someone more then I thought was possible. 

Baby L's  Stats

How far along: 29 weeks! (3rd Trimester)

Sleep: Other then a few bathrooms trips here and there, leg cramping, and waking up from  a dream with  Rumpelstiltskin in it from the "Once upon a time" series. Sleep has been dreamy.
Maternity Clothes: All Maternity and Yoga pants from here.. I'm really missing my pre pregnancy wardrobe at this point though.

Food cravings:  Anything Pumpkin!!!! But honestly, that's me every year haha!
Food aversions:
Shrimp. BLAH!

Symptoms I HAVE: Dealing with an Iron Deficiency. My midwife called me the other day and told me my numbers were low so I've been eating my red meats and taking Iron and I'm believing she'll have something different to say in two weeks! 

Doctor’s Appointment:My next Doc appointment is on the 14th! I'm hoping I'll get a sonogram!! :)

Movement: Everything! From kicks, to hiccups, to punches, and my personal favorite stretches.  She's a silent girl during the day but is as active as anything at night!! Love it.

Belly Button: It's actually out! Which surprised me considering I wasn't officially popped with Evie until I was almost 37 weeks.

Name: Liya Evangeline Riley.  I can't stop saying it without smiling ear to ear. It has such a deep meaning behind it and I'll be sharing it on here in the future.

Best moment of the last few weeks:
Watching Evelynne develop curiosity to why my belly is getting so BIG!! Now when I ask her where her sister is she'll kiss my belly and it's the cutest thing. 

My sweet friend through me a baby sprinkle last Saturday with lots of delicious goodies! I'm so blessed to know just how loved my girls really are!

What I’m looking forward to:
Getting back into my pre- pregnancy clothes. I miss them so much!!
What I miss:  I do miss my body at this point. However, It's so worth it! Keep Baking pretty girl.


  1. Awww, you look so cute! Yay for the 3rd tri!

  2. OMG! How sweet that she kisses your belly! Cute, cute, CUTE!

  3. You are too precious! I can't believe you're so far along already! And I love that you dream about Rumpelstiltskin. Too funny!

  4. Valuable information. Lucky me I found your website unintentionally,
