29 Week Bump-date!

Sunday, May 25, 2014

Well it's officially summertime up here in the High Desert and I'm definitely feeling it! Haha! This is going to be a long, sweaty summer! My toes look like vienna sausages and my fingers are so swollen that the wedding rings had to come off. :( Boo. We got a cheapy set, but I miss my rings! 
It feels so good to finally be in the home stretch! Time seems to be moving faster these days since we have been so busy! I'm so happy and excited to meet baby girl in just a couple of months!

How far along: 29 weeks
Gender: Girl

Weight gain: 27 pounds
Stretch marks: Nope
Belly button in or out: Outie!
Sleep: Sleeping well...its been a little more humid than usual up here in the desert so that's helped with my congestion and breathing a lot!

Best moment this week: Doc said everything looks great at our last appointment, but decided to do a "dating scan" just to get a better idea of our due date, so I get to see lil one in another ultrasound on June 10th! I can't wait to see how big she is!
Worst moment this week: Realizing I'm already growing out of my maternity clothes and I still have, give or take, 10 weeks left! Oh man...
Miss anything: My old clothes and having more outfit choices...oh, and not feeling like a whale! LoL
Movement: Haha yep! Especially "Oh you're laying down to sleep, mom? Okay...I'll do a tap dance on your ribcage!" LoL She never fails...
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope!
Looking forward to: Babymoon in 4 days! I'm so excited for alone time with the hubbz!
Weekly Wisdom: Get a birthing ball! I got one and I love the pressure it relieves off my back! I'm totally going to use it when I'm in labor!

28 Week Bump-date!

Monday, May 19, 2014

So, other than my nesting instincts going on overdrive, this week was pretty uneventful. :) My new routine is that I have to wake up, eat breakfast, and immediately start cleaning the house before I can relax! Anyone who knows me knows this is completely out of my norm! lol I've always been a pretty clean person, but it's never been a top priority to me. Although, it's been very nice to constantly have a clean house...I'm hoping this new habit of mine sticks now that I'm going to be a stay at home mommy! Brian even got in on it yesterday and shampooed the carpets and the couch! Yessss! Only thing is, the dreaded feet and hand swelling has begun (the wedding rings have officially been replaced by bigger cheapy rings...so sad!) so I have to make sure I don't over-do it!

How far along: 28 weeks
Gender: Girl
Weight gain: 25 pounds...didn't gain any weight this week! :)
Stretch marks: Nope
Belly button in or out: Outie!
Sleep: Getting up to pee 4 times a night and having craaaaazy dreams...other than that sleeping pretty good! lol 
Best moment this week: We went on our hospital tour! It was so exciting to be walking around the place where we will be going to have our little girl in a couple of months!
Worst moment this week: Pretty much anytime I have to bend over to pick up something is the worst moment of my life! LoL
Miss anything: Everything that gives me heartburn that I've had to add to my "Nope" list including: O.J., tomatoes, avocados, and chocolate....ughhhh...pass the tums!
Movement: Lots of it! Less kicks now and more rolls. I can feel her drag her knees and elbows across my stomach...such a funny feeling!
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope!
Looking forward to: Babymoon in 10 days! Eeeeep! I can't wait to find out where we are going!
Weekly Wisdom: We learned a lot on our hospital tour, I definitely suggest doing one at the beginning of your 3rd trimester just to be on the safe side!

27 Week Bump-date!

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day...I know I did! I wasn't expecting anything, but of course my wonderful hubby and daddy blessed me with flowers and love! It felt so nice to be appreciated. :) We also got to spend a lot of much needed time with our families, which is definitely one of our top priorities, so it was a really nice weekend. I love this point my husband and I have reached in life where family time means everything to us...we have so much to be thankful for!

Well, it's official! I have reached my 3rd and FINAL trimester of pregnancy! Oh. Em. Gee. In just a couple of months I will be full term and then its up to Baby Girl to decide on the date of her debut! I am soooo excited, but I feel like time is just flying by now and we still have so much to do to prepare for her! We still haven't finished the nursery yet and I have quite a lot of deep cleaning to do! Luckily, my nesting has started pretty hard core! LoL I have never had such an intense desire for everything around me to be clean in my life! I guess its good that it gets done now, though, before I am too big to care! Hahaha!

How far along: 27 weeks
Gender: Girl

Weight gain: 25 pounds...woah mama! lol
Stretch marks: Nope
Belly button in or out: Out!

Sleep: If I look tired in my bump pic this week, it's because I AM! LoL I've been having back and hip pain in the middle of the night that's keeping me tossing and turning...which with my big belly is more like a turtle on it's back trying to flip over!
Best moment this week: Finally got an appointment with my new doctor and I absolutely love her! I am very excited to be delivering my little one at the hospital that I was born at, and that my mom is a nurse at! It just makes it so special! :)
Worst moment this week: Baby kicked me HARD in the bladder in the car one day...I'll leave what happened next to your imagination! ;)
Miss anything: Coffee...oh, glorious coffee!
Movement: Mover and shaker! Baby girl is starting to make it very clear to Mama that she is already running out of room!
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope!
Looking forward to: Our hospital tour is this weekend! Wow! I can't believe it!
Weekly Wisdom: Don't be afraid to switch doctors during pregnancy if you're not 100% satisfied with the care you are receiving. This is such an important time, and you deserve to be happy and comfortable with your medical team!
