Pregnancy update: The Final Weeks!

by Amy on 8 May 2013

third trimester update

We’re in the home stretch – only about a month until our little one is due to arrive! I’ve been lucky to have a (mostly) easy pregnancy. The first trimester was the hardest, with intense morning sickness, headaches + fatigue. But since then, I’ve felt pretty great – I have a good amount of energy, am able to workout/do prenatal yoga/walk quite a bit, + am still cooking/blogging/socializing/working per usual. Sure, I get tired earlier + have some aches + pains, but that’s to be expected.

Recently, we’ve had a ton of fun stuff happening – within a 7-day stretch, my husband + I celebrated our two-year (surprise!) wedding anniversary, i celebrated my birthday, + we had an awesome shower. Two of my most wonderful friends, Alexandra + Tabitha (both bloggers!) threw us a fabulous couples shower to celebrate the arrival of Fearless Baby. We’re lucky to have the love + support of such amazing friends + family during this exciting time, + so much to celebrate!

How will I be occupying myself for the next few weeks? I’m putting the final touches on the nursery (look for a nursery post with lots of pics soon!), getting my hospital bag packed, getting the freezer stocked with meals for after baby arrives, + enjoying the last weeks as a family of two before baby arrives. Thanks for all the kind words + well wishes throughout my pregnancy, friends!

Oh wow, I literally feel like you *just* announced you were pregnant! I can’t believe it’s almost time for the baby to come :) You look amazing, hope you continue to feel good for the next few weeks!

Tracey, I feel that way, too. I always feel like time goes by surprisingly quickly, but this pregnancy, especially the second half of it, has gone by at an insane speed. Thanks for your sweet words!

Aw, I can’t wait to meet Baby Fearless! You are the cutest pregnant woman I have ever seen! Sounds like you’ve been having a fab week!

4 amy May 8, 2013 at 7:45 am

You are so sweet, Leah! Hope to see you next week at Generous Helpings – it’s been too long since I’ve seen ya!

Enjoy the final weeks of pregnancy Amy and the anticipation to being able to enjoy adult libations again. 😉

9 Renee May 8, 2013 at 12:41 pm

My how time flies! It seems like yesterday you got married and now it’s two years later and soon you will have a baby. Best wishes Amy!

10 amy May 8, 2013 at 12:45 pm

I know, isn’t it crazy Renee? Time is flying indeed!

11 Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry May 8, 2013 at 12:46 pm

Enjoy your final month of freedom before your little bundle of joy arrives!

12 angela@spinachtiger May 8, 2013 at 1:14 pm

You look great and oh so happy. Baby is blessed!

13 Jessica@AKitchenAddiction May 8, 2013 at 2:48 pm

You are so gorgeous! Enjoy the last few weeks!

14 Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking May 8, 2013 at 5:13 pm

I may be cliche to say, but you really have that “glow” about you! It’s true! I can SO see how excited you are to become a mama, Amy!

15 Amy (Savory Moments) May 8, 2013 at 6:27 pm

Wow – you look glowing!! Glad to hear that your pregnancy has been going well. How exciting for you :0)

16 kirsten@farmfreshfeasts May 8, 2013 at 7:45 pm

Have a wonderful remaining pregnancy, Amy. You look adorable (and not at all So Ready To Be Not Pregnant).
Relax and enjoy the time as you can, because this really is the easiest part of parenthood.

17 amy May 8, 2013 at 7:50 pm

You’re so right – I definitely haven’t reached the So-Ready-To-Be-Not-Pregnant stage yet. While I have some unpleasant symptoms, I actually have been enjoying being pregnant the vast majority of the time. Now, talk to me in 3-4 more weeks + i’ll probably be singing a different tune. 😉

18 Sarah E May 8, 2013 at 7:52 pm

You look so good!! :) Well wishes for a safe labor & delivery.

19 wendy (the weekend gourmet) May 8, 2013 at 10:02 pm

you look adorable, mama! hard to believe you’re so close to your due date…keeping active should help make labor and delivery easier. smart to freeze some meals for those first crazy weeks of adjustment to a new baby-dictated schedule!

20 amy May 8, 2013 at 10:16 pm

Thank you, Wendy! I’m definitely hoping that staying active throughout the pregnancy will help make both delivery + afterwards a bit easier. Only time will tell! =)

21 Adri May 9, 2013 at 8:30 am

You look positively beautiful, and I am so pleased to hear everything is going so well. I await photos of the nursery and then of the little one! Babies are so much fun!

22 Sammie May 9, 2013 at 9:22 am

Hi amy. You look really fantastic. I’m so excited for you to see your precious baby! And wow it almost felt like only a week ago that you announced your pregnancy. Time really flies! Take care! :)

23 kristen @ notsodomesticated May 9, 2013 at 9:54 am

24 Tiffany May 9, 2013 at 10:24 am
