Week 33

Whatever, I can't remember to take belly pictures.

The belly is getting large and kind of pointy... and in the way of things.  It's hard to snuggle Finley because there's this baby between us.  I have lots of heartburn, get to go the bathroom a lot and have some back pain.  Not as much as last time though. :)

Here's my creative self-portrait.  Do you like my sequined cardigan with skull pj pants?

I'm still running 3 miles a few times a week and trying to do an adapted version of Jillian Michaels once or twice a week too.  I can't imagine being pregnant for 7 more weeks, but I guess I will be.

I've changed directions with my plan for his nursery and am going to order fabric this week.  Last time I made allll of Finley's bedding and I'm going to buy a few ready made things this time.  We've decided to go ahead and buy a second crib--because of Finley's brace I don't think he'll be ready for a big bed quite as soon as we'd hope.  I haven't decided if I need a second changing table or not... hopefully they don't overlap by like a year in diapers.  Any two baby families out there want to weigh in on whether I need a second one?

We are still working on a name for this fellow.  I think we figured out his middle name and we are closing in on the first name.  With Finley, we didn't share the name because we weren't totally sure until several hours after he was born, and I'm guessing we'll be the same way this time.  Also, getting input from other people is scary--I'd rather wait until everyone has to pretend that they like his name.  Until then, I think we will refer to him as "He-Who-Must-Be-Named."


  1. Love the self-portrait. Also, it's fine if you don't want to tell people the baby's name is Victor for a while longer.

  2. ha. so Victor :) JK I was thinking you could name the baby Quinn, as it is another name that I liked as a boy's name and then heard it for girls too (since I remember you having that problem with Finley's name).
    I agree with not telling... it is way easier than getting everyone's opinion before he's here.

  3. i thought you were going to name him "jamilla" after your favorite blogger(me).

    get it girl...grow that belly. you are adorable...

  4. i'm sorry, "jamillo" would be more appropriate for a boy.

  5. My vote is for Victor, too. (Surprising, huh?) Just do it.

  6. Whoa belly! Rachel you are a very cute pregnant lady! Hope Sol is giving you some foot massages!

  7. I'm so proud of you for NOT sharing the name... I think that's the way it should be. With Noah, we had a relative say "I HATE that name..." I wanted to say... "and WHO are you??!!" But I didn't, and Noah is still Noah. Well this time we made everyone wait until we were set on the name for our little girl, and then once we announced it, we still got the looks and "where'd you find THAT name??" comments. ARG! So frustrating. So as tempting as it may be to leak it, DONT! =) Hold strong!

  8. Yeah, girl, you are getting a pointy baby belly! Hope you're still feeling well. Must be since you're running 3 miles a couple times per week.

    I'm always happy to see your updates.
