30 Weeks

30 weeks today! 70 more days until my due date and 49 until Eleanor is full term.

You might notice that in the picture above I'm wearing a different wedding ring. My fingers have started to swell, and while it might sound silly, having to abandon my wedding rings has been one of my biggest pregnancy related fears. The swelling has been getting worse and worse, and the only thing more depressing than the thought of abandoning my wedding rings was the thought of them being cut off of my puffy fingers if I left them on too long. So on Saturday I begrudgingly walked into a little jewelry store and picked out a plain silver band to replace my pretty little diamonds. I was really bummed at first, but this simple ring is starting to grow on me. If nothing else, it will always be a symbol of this unique time in our lives.

On Monday my baby shower invitation arrived in the mail. It is so cute and just perfect! I love it! I put it in the baby's scrapbook right away. I'm so grateful to my cousins and aunt for throwing this shower for me and I cannot wait until the 25th, which, since we're keeping track of the days, is only 16 away!


  1. I love that you can still wear that sweater, and your new ring is such a neat thing to have--maybe one day you can give it to Eleanor!!

  2. I think Morgan stole my comment, LOL. :) Gorgeous sweater and I love the idea of giving the ring to Eleanor.

  3. I think it is so sweet. Everything: the sweater, the ring, the invite, etc. You are going to be a great mom.

  4. Lindsay, Deann and Joanne did an amazing and stunning job preparing and hosting your shower. What a lovely evening for a lovely mommy-to-be!
