Pregnancy Update: 32 Weeks

Dress: ASOS
Photo idea via Pinterest
See my other pregnancy updates here and here.

How far along: 32 weeks...and 5 days. But who's counting. ;)

Baby size: Squash! Roughly 3.75 pounds and 15-17 inches long.

Total Weight Gain: 23 pounds

Gender: Girl

Movement: Oh yes, all the time! I don't really feel kicks anymore but lots of rolling around and moving. She also gets the hiccups every night right around the same time! The first time it happened I didn't know what was going on. It felt like the tiny kicks that I'd feel when she first started kicking but one right after the other for a few minutes at a time.

Symptoms: Lack of sleep and lots of bathroom breaks! Oh, and heartburn. I'd never experienced it prior to pregnancy and it seems to act up whenever I eat anything spicy. It's a bummer, because I basically put Sriracha on everything.

Belly Button: Innie. I'm thinking it might just end up staying that way at this point.

Physical Changes: Not too much has changed since my last update other than the bump continues to grow each week!

What I Miss: Sleep. I'll be really tired and so excited to go to bed but the second I lay down I just start thinking about a million things. Or I'll wake up to go to the bathroom (2-3x a night at this point) and she'll wake up too and her movements are strong enough now to keep me awake so I'll start thinking/worrying about anything and everything all over again. The pregnancy insomnia is real, you guys. I'm hoping it's helping me prepare for the major lack of sleep once she's here!

Food Cravings: Sweet potatoes, salmon, and avocados. I'm not exactly craving these items but they're what I've been eating the most lately. I'm enjoying eating healthy most of the time and I find that I get full a lot quicker since she's taking up so much space.

Food Aversions: None.

What we're most excited about: Just having her here! We're almost finished with her nursery and my sister and aunt threw me the most beautiful and special baby shower two weekends ago (I shared a few photos from it below) where we were gifted a lot of the items we needed. Thank you so much to all of our family and friends! We're starting to feel a lot more prepared in terms of what we have left to get done/need to purchase and now I'm just so anxious to meet her!
Baby Shower Dress: ASOS (on sale!)
The gorgeous tablescape. A huge thanks to my sister and Aunt Lauren for crafting all of the cute diaper cakes and flower centerpieces. 
I can't thank my Aunt Beth and sister enough for throwing me such a beautiful shower! Baby girl and I are so thankful and will never forget this special day. 
What we're least excited about: For me, it's just the waiting at this point. The first and second trimester flew by but now that we're wrapping things up with the nursery and what needs to be purchased and get done time is starting to drag. I'm trying to make the most of the time Colton and I have left just the two of us and we're going to make it a point to go on date nights each week leading up to whenever I give birth.

Favorite Maternity Clothes: 
At this point, I've stopped buying anything maternity since I only have roughly seven weeks left and can't justify spending the money on something I'll be wearing for less than two months. With that being said, I may need to cave and buy a pair of maternity shorts because it's already starting to heat up in Arizona! I'm still living in these maternity jeans from Target. They fit a little awkwardly at first because they run big so I felt like I was constantly having to pull them up but now that the bump is bigger, they fit great. Other than that, I've been wearing lots of lightweight cardigans, flowy tops, and comfy dresses that are non-maternity so I'll still be able to wear them after giving birth. I've linked a few of my favorite items below.

Rib Knit Tank Dress

Something tells me I'll be living in dresses like this for the remainder of my pregnancy. I'm pretty much all about comfort at this point and this dress definitely fits the bill. It's non-maternity so I'll be able to wear it after pregnancy and is under $60. I love it so much that I actually bought it in both colors!

I've been styling the dress with my favorite cardigan before the weather starts heating up here in Arizona. It's easily the most worn item in my closet and comes in 10 colors. I find that the neutral color goes with just about everything and it's super lightweight, so it's perfect for this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nordstrom Winter Sale Favorites

It's no secret that I love a good sale, so when my favorite retailer is having a major one I get excited! That's right, Nordstrom is having their Winter Sale and there are tons of amazing items currently marked down up to 40% off their original prices. The sale ends on Sunday, February 26th but items are already starting to sell out, so be sure to take advantage now!

I was immediately drawn to the pretty print of this top (it's actually a dress!) and knew the style of it would be perfect for my growing bump. For size reference, I'm typically a size 2-4 and went with the size 4. At 28 weeks pregnant, there's still plenty of room for the bump to grow and I can wear it post-baby, a win-win! I paired it with distressed skinny jeans and taupe lace-up sandals. There's a very similar pair that are part of the sale (under $80) and they come in a few different colors.

I've included more of my favorite items from the Nordstrom Winter Sale below, so be sure to them out!

Dress (worn as a top): Nordstrom (on sale! -- currently 40% off), Jeans: Nordstrom, Sandals: Nordstrom (also love this very similar pair that's on sale), Bag: similar at Nordstrom, Sunglasses: Nordstrom


Lush High/Low Tee [ $39.00 ----> $23.40 ] I love the taupe color of this top because it goes with just about everything I own. Anyone else have a major neutral obsession? It also comes in three other pretty colors that work perfect for transitioning into Spring!

Lush Perfect Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic [ $42.00 ----> $27.90 ] This tunic has been a staple item in my closet for over a year now. It's so flattering and is available in 7 colors. 

Leith V-Neck Sweater [ $59.00 ----> $35.40 ] This sweater is another great staple piece. I love the way it looks layered over a top like this underneath or by itself (as seen here). 

Halogen Ruffle Sleeve Tunic [ $69.00 ----> $41.40 ] I've been loving the ruffle trend and can't seem to get enough! These sleeves on this top are so fun and the color is gorgeous. 

Pleione French Terry Ruffle Sweatshirt [ $62.00 ----> $37.20 ] I wasn't kidding about how much I love all things ruffles! This sweatshirt is so comfy and comes in three other colors including blush pink. 

Vince Camuto 'Koral' Perforated Open Toe Bootie [ $149.95 ----> $89.90 ] I've gotten so much wear out of these booties the past few months. They're so comfortable and come in three colors. 

BP. Pleated Scarf [ $19.00 ----> $11.98 ] This mauve scarf is a steal for just $11.98! I love the tassels and the fact that it's super lightweight, so it can still be worn throughout Spring.
