28 Week Bumpdate

I can’t even believe that I’m at 28 weeks and starting my third trimester today! We’re so incredibly excited, but also have so much left to do and it’s hard to believe how fast time is flying. T-minus 12 weeks (hopefully!) until our little one is here and it seems like no time at all.

(none of the pieces are maternity)

How far along? 28 weeks

Baby’s size: almost 15 inches and around 2.2 lbs

Gender: a sweet little girl

Name: we’re keeping the name secret and will likely go into the hospital with two choices.

Maternity clothes: still mixing some maternity staples with my normal clothes. I try to work with what I already have, or choose budget friendly pieces that I don’t feel bad spending money on. While I love the tighter, form fitting dresses, those definitely aren’t practical for work. I’m opting for dresses that are flowy and comfortable for meetings. I’ve been wearing these white jeans non-stop and they’re comfortable and flattering.

How’re you feeling? Still feeling good (knock on wood). The backaches are definitely more frequent, but stretching each morning usually helps. Little one is moving and grooving non-stop! Especially after breakfast in the morning and right before bed each night.

Nursery: I gave a sneak peek on insta stories earlier this week, but our crib delivered and I love it! We found in at a local baby boutique, Baby Braithwaite , but I also found it online here. It’s such a timeless crib. My parents brought over our glider from Celadon in Charleston and it’s the most comfortable thing ever! Now to find a dresser and artwork for over the crib….

Purchases so far: the stroller and car seat are ordered, this little romper will be perfect for the summer heat, my mother in law sent us this precious pink bunny and I love the entire Jellycat line. It’s so soft! This tote is amazing and can hold so much stuff. It would make a great hospital bag!

I’ve been putting together my registry and would love to know any must have items that you had on yours, or that are your go-to baby shower gifts!

    You’re adorable! You will not regret your UppaBaby Stroller one bit! It’s the best! I am also in love with Jellycat stuffies, they are just so cute and soft! My ultimate baby item is the 4MOMS Infant tub. Seriously the best invention ever!

    So so cute!! You are going to LOVE the Vista stroller! We go on like two walks a day. I have been so happy with uppa baby! You absolutely need a rock n’ play… Vivi is 10 weeks and still sleeping in it in our room. I bought an expensive Halo bassinet and go figure, she prefers the rock n’ play

    So exciting!! You look adorable! Both of my babies loved their Boppy Lounger (the one for newborns) for the first few months (Eli is still so small that he still uses it all the time). I let him nap in it and it comes in a new cute grey elephant print. Hannah Andersson one-piece pajamas were my go-to’s with Ella!! They are SO soft and cozy! I also discovered Liverpool jean company when I was pregnant with Eli (thanks to StichFix but I’ve seen them online and in a few boutiques around here) and LOVE them! You can get regular jeans that are stretchy without buttons that I still wear now! Their maternity jeans were super comfy too!

    You look amazing!!! Everyone is telling me that a Solly Baby wrap is a necessity!
