Baby Boy

Baby Boy Allred will be here soon!  I'm 34 weeks along!  This pregnancy really has flown by for me.  I thought feeling crummy in the beginning and now the summer heat would make it drag on, but it went by so fast!  Although, even with this awful heat and being so far along, I can't complain too much... I'm pretty comfortable for the most part--sleeping really well, not even really swelling much.  Last week I even travelled the 22 hour (one way) stretch to Washington for a family reunion quite comfortably.  I can't believe that in a matter of weeks I'll have a little bundle to take care of forever!

Yesterday I had an ultrasound, and it was so fun that Brett was able to come with me.  It makes it so much more special with him there holding my hand and seeing how excited he is to see our little baby.  The baby is looking really good, and overall I am measuring about right on time.  His size/weight is in the 30th percentile, so he shouldn't be too big of a baby (huge relief for me!), but it really isn't an exact prediction for how big he'll be when he is born, so we'll see! 

He currently weighs 4 lbs. 7 oz.

He still is moving all over the place and hasn't moved down yet

He has one foot low, and one foot next to his head, which might explain the kicks in my ribs and the kicks I feel low

He is pretty cute, even in the blurry ultrasound pictures!

What a cute little face and profile! 

The nursery is almost pulled together, I should be posting "after" pictures soon.  We're pretty excited about how it all came together, especially since we did it on such a tight budget. 

And we call him Baby Boy Allred, he is still yet to be named.  I am trying to hold out for the names I love, but Brett isn't budging and giving we shall see :)


  1. He is darling! We can't wait to meet him!

  2. Hahaha I just posted about our baby's name. It's literally the ONLY one we agree on, haha!!! And I can't believe you're so far along already! It's so close! I was just thinking today about how I want to get together with you before school starts, but you are probably crazy busy!!
