Hey y’all!! I am shocked that it’s already been a month since I’ve checked in and jotted down things for a pregnancy update. Time sure is flying! My belly is back in full force and we couldn’t be more excited!
In my last bumpdate we announced our sweet boy’s name and since then it’s been so nice putting it to a face. Especially since a couple of weeks back we went in for our anatomy scan. I’m so grateful to say we have a healthy little one with “luscious lips” as the ultrasound tech described him. 🙂 Beau, as we like to call him, already has his daddy’s chest and chin.
My heart is so so FULL.
How far along? 23 weeks + 1 day
Mood? Hey, I still have my crazy emotional moments, as any pregnant woman would, but my soul is at so much peace that nothing has been able to bring me down.
Body changes? Are inevitable at this point. My 23 week bump with Beau resembles my 33 week bump with Westin, we are being stretched to our limit! All in all I’ve been gaining weight steadily, but nothing alarming since I’m so tall. (about the only time I thank the Lord for being tall!) I’ve been living in these cute pregnancy overalls from PinkBlush Maternity all Spring and I can’t wait to get my hands on the overall shorts! This look is officially called my “farming outfit” in the Stringfellow home thanks to my 6 year old. He told me I belong on a farm when I wear them, but jokes on him because I belong on a farm PERIOD. 😉 I’m rubber.. he’s glue.
Feel baby move? This boy moves all the time! He’s super active first thing in the morning and right before bed, usually after I finish my nightly bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. 😉 Some strong moves freak out my husband so I have to set my phone or the remote on my belly and let Beau kick it off. I won’t even lie, it freaks me out sometimes too!
To-Do list? Being our 3rd boy I’ve already fished out more than enough summer clothes for him, and we have a ton of newborn diapers from family and friends. So really, all we need to do is get him a new crib & bedding, rocker, and a few special things like a coming home outfit and decor. I am LOVING not having to stress over the thought of gathering everything together in time.. it’s helped this pregnancy squeak by easily.
Another month in the books! 🙂 Happy BUMPDAY friends, thanks for tagging along!
