OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

HOW FAR ALONG: 27 weeks

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: I’m currently 131 pounds, which puts me at 21 pounds total :/

MATERNITY CLOTHES: YES! If I attempt to put on clothing that I wore pre pregnancy I look too funny 😉

STRETCH MARKS: None yet, crossing my fingers not to get any!

SLEEP: Alright, I’m starting to get quite uncomfortable. Turning from side to side is not an easy task anymore.

BEST MOMENT RECENTLY:  Welcoming my newest nephew James. He’s so so precious! I can’t believe how tiny babies are when they’re born. I completely forgot!!!

MISS ANYTHING: Definitely missing being able to do my normal chores without stopping for breaks. It’s almost as if I need to take a break every 20 minutes to catch my breath and calm my racing heartbeat.

MOVEMENT: Yes!  I think she’s practicing karate or something because she’s one heck of a strong baby!

FOOD CRAVINGS: Bread & Peaches! I’m so sad that peaches are almost out of season. And bread, well, I’ve always been crazy about bread but for some reason now I crave it like no other. It’s bad I know :/

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: Still salads… I just don’t like my veggies covered in dressing and mixed with other veggies.

LABOR SIGNS: Nope

MOOD: Getting extremely emotional and nervous. I recently had  a meltdown while driving my son to daycare. I started thinking about how he’s not going to be a baby anymore and that I’ll be focusing on our little girl. For some reason I have this fear that he’ll feel neglected or something. Then, I began to cry about how happy I am and how blessed I feel for being able to give David a baby sister. Gosh, I’m an emotional wreck right now.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: 1) nursery furniture to arrive  2) planning the maternity photo shoot.

Hi everyone,

I can’t believe I’m almost 25 weeks pregnant! I promised I’d do pregnancy updates so here it goes.

HOW FAR ALONG: I am currently 24 weeks pregnant.

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: Oh gosh, who added this question to the list? Haha 🙂 In total, I’ve gained 16 pounds so far!

MATERNITY CLOTHES: YES!! I can’t squeeze my bum into my non maternity pants/jeans and my belly is a little to big for my non maternity tops. I’ve been loving ASOS for maternity clothing as well as regular leggings for those days when I’m just running errands and working around the house.

STRETCH MARKS: None yet, thank goodness!

SLEEP: Not bad! In the beginning of this pregnancy I woke up at least 3-4 times during the night because I had to use the restroom, but now I pretty much sleep through the whole night.

BEST MOMENT SO FAR:  Definitely finding out the gender of our baby. I feel as though I’m able to connect with her much more now.

MISS ANYTHING: I miss my energy! Every day around 3-4 pm my energy level drops to like a negative 0. Sometimes I feel like I’m simply going to fall asleep in the middle of work.

MOVEMENT: Yes, and lots of it. I find that the baby starts to move a lot when I’m eating or before bed. I think she has a routine already 🙂

FOOD CRAVINGS: Fruit & Pasta! Peaches, nectarines, grapes,  apples, strawberries… Basically any kind of fruit and any kind of pasta 🙂

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: Salads… I can eat all my veggies separately but if they’re all mixed in a bowl with some sort of dressing I absolutely will not eat it. Green juice or any kind of juice is how I get my daily dose of veggies.

LABOR SIGNS: None yet, thank goodness! However, I get A LOT of braxton hicks.

MOOD: Mostly always happy, but sometimes I have those moments when I just want and need to cry…

LOOKING FORWARD TO: Setting up our baby girls nursery very soon.

WE’RE HAVING A ….

Hi everyone! We’re super excited to finally share the gender of our little angel with you! We’re having a GIRL!!!!!! I don’t even know how to describe our excitement! We are so grateful to God for blessing us with a little girl! It still feels surreal to me. Every time someone asks me if I know the gender of our baby I blush… I’m that happy! We found out the gender of the baby at 13 weeks at a early gender scan clinic, however, my doctor told me that I shouldn’t trust the early scan which really made me sad because they told me that they were 100% sure it’s a girl.  A couple weeks ago my doctor confirmed that we are indeed having a girl and I went a little crazy with finally being able to buy cute little dresses and bows 🙂

Sometimes old wives tales are completely true! In my case, they seem to be 100% true. We got this beautiful little gender reveal box from Hudson & Heart CO and it’s one of those things that will stay with you forever. It’s a little box that has a quiz for you that will reveal some clues as well as a little gender lovey toy. David had a blast opening it and loves “Lucy the Lamb”. He says his little sister will love her little “babushka”. Lol, don’t ask me why picked that name for her, haha!

As always, thank you for all your support and kind messages! I appreciate every single one of them! You guys are the best!!!

XOXO
