Yes, the post title is meant to be sung to the tune of I'm so Fancy… So I've seen a few bloggers do BumpDates every month which are super cute and so much fun to read. My favorite has been my hilarious friend Kristen. Her little boy Everett is just precious!!! Well, I thought that I should finish this pregnancy off with a little BumpDate round up of myself. I mean, I love talking about myself sooooo it's surprising I haven't been doing it all along!

I want to thank Tatum Kathleen Photography for my awesome maternity shots!! Also, a huge thanks  to Kelsey Erin Photography for keeping Blissful Happenings looking good and taking our brilliant food comparison pics!!! I love my boos!!

[How many weeks?] 39 weeks on Thursday

[Gender?] Boy

[Name?] Rocco

[Weight Gain?] I hate you! How rude!?

[What foods have you been craving?] All. The. Food. I have had an enormous appetite pretty much since the second trimester. Who are we kidding!? I have always had an enormous appetite, but it's been out of control. I started off craving biscuits and gravy and frozen Van's waffles. I crave avocado rolls and veggie tempura from Lil' Tokyo pretty much every single day. They know me pretty well there…

[How has your sleep been?] Meh. It's been okay. I would say I get up to pee 3-6 times a night which isn't awesome, but luckily I'm able to fall back asleep. Nature's way of preparing me for Rocco's many feedings!?

[How are your emotions?] Ummmm they are definitely heightened. I cry a lot, it doesn't take much at all.  I am incredibly needy these days and I miss The Captain. I spend a lot of time hugging my dogs and watching Gossip Girl.

[Have you been nesting?] Definitely. I just want everything cleaned and disinfected… This has been a terribly inconvenient time for my house to spring a leak and have a massive hole cut into my ceiling. Sigh. I can't wait for it to be finished so I can mop and dust.

[What's on my nightstand?] I've been reading HypnoBirthing, HappyBaby, Dad is Fat, and Bringing Up Bébé. I can't quite focus enough to read much, but I've been trying.

[What am I super over!?] This heat. I can't take it. It's been absolutely miserable. This ridiculously un-San Diegan 95-100 degree weather is killing me. Crotch sweat is an awful thing…

[Any guesses when you will go into labor?] I wish I could say tomorrow, but I have a feeling I'm going to be pretty close to my due date. I think October 4 is the day… but what do I know!?!

[What I'm looking forward to?] I absolutely cannot wait to meet this nugget!! I am so excited for labor, which I know sounds crazy, but I can't wait to feel a contraction and know that sometime soon I'm gonna meet my son!! I can't wait to see if he's going to look like The Captain!! I just imagine his mini-me and that makes me happier than I can tell you!!!

Baby Shower Fab

[necklace] Sea & Cake 

I was able to make a trip back to Georgia in late May to visit all my family and see all my best peeps and also to have my Filipino baby shower. I don't know if you know this, but The Captain is Filipino. I have Filipino family. It's like My Big Fat Greek Wedding except with more gambling and roasted pig. The shower was more entertaining than I can possibly describe to you! From the limitless questions to the very anatomically correct Asian baby boy figure adorning my super non-vegan cake, seriously. It was a hoot. I am truly blessed and Rocco was sufficiently showered with gifts!!! I wore this adorable Kohls dress that was passed to me by a recently preggs buddy. I am obsessed with it. I wish it was still available online so you all could buy it!!! I think this is the perfect preggo dress. It's form fitting, but not skin tight and it's long enough that, as you grow, you don't start to worry about showing your lady bits. The pattern is pretty magical and it's from Kohls!!! Kohls?!?! I linked to a few super cute tank dresses from various inexpensive stores that are great for showing off your belly and staying cool when it's hotter than the surface of the sun outside. My shoes are super comfy, stable, and ancient, but those I posted are equally fab, they might not be as stable as mine if you are preggo… these might be a better option! I know they are high, but they are super comfy. I still wear mine!! Swearsies.

photo 2[Yes, that's exactly what you think it is. A baby statue with a penis and a USMC tattoo… No words. Side note: I ate like 30 veggie lumpia]
