39 weeks and still waiting

10 Jun


I’m so ready to meet this little guy! Everything is still going well and my body is getting ready to have this baby. I go to bed every night thinking “this is going to be the night!”, but so far we are still waiting. With the temperature going into the 90’s this weekend I’ve been spending most of my time inside with the AC on and fans blowing on me. Even with that I’m still hot. 🙂
It’s so fun to think that in the next week we should be holding a new little baby!

33 weeks

29 Apr


It’s been a few weeks since our last update, but things are still going well. Thankfully these last few weeks have gone by quickly and I hope they continue to. I’m ready to be done with this pregnancy….soon. This little boy has some powerful kicks, much stronger than the girl’s ever were. And some of them really hurt! I’ve also been having some bad back pain, no doubt due to lifting two kiddos all day, and doing a major house project.
I plan to post some pictures soon, but over the last month we turned our front closet into a “mud room”, and painted all the trim and walls in our entryway, dining room, living room, and upstairs hallway. Doesn’t that sound like what every mama in her third trimester should be doing? I’m crazy like that!

I’m 16 weeks along now with this little sweet pea. I’m so thankful to be through all the “morning” sickness and have some more energy. As far as the belly goes, I’d just like to say that my body is much less forgiving the third time around. I’ve been showing for weeks!

A prego photo

12 May

I was downloading pictures off our camera the other day, and this photo was one of them.  Apparently it’s been awhile since we’ve downloaded our photos.  This is in my last few days of pregnancy, but I can’t remember exactly when.

35 Weeks

24 Feb

Only 5 weeks to go!  We’ve gotten a lot accomplished these past few months, but I still feel like I have so much I’d like to do before this baby comes.  This weekend I’m hoping to get all of the baby clothes out of the basement and washed and hung back up in the closet.  I also plan to pack our hospital bag.  I can’t believe we’re at that point already.

I’ve been feeling pretty good.  Other than back pain, and the occasional kick that feels like its going to come right through my stomach, I’m doing great.  I have not been nearly as good about taking belly pictures during this pregnancy as my last, but here is the latest.  Just for kicks I also put up a photo from this same stage in my last pregnancy.

Pregnancy Update

6 Nov

Well, I think I’m about 19 weeks now.  I keep forgetting what week I’m in during this pregnancy.  Things have been going really well since I started the second trimester.  No more sickness and lots more energy.  Here is a belly photo.

Counting Down the Days

7 Apr

We’re down to the last couple weeks.  I was thinking the other day, that this baby could come tomorrow, or in a month.  Its hard not knowing.  Both Dustin and I are getting so excited to see and hold this baby.  The nursery is all ready.  The clothes are all washed and put away in the dresser.  We finally got a car seat this last weekend, so I think we’re all set!

I’ve been feeling really good.  Other than my enormous stomach and extremely swollen feet, I feel great.  Dustin has to help me put my socks and shoes on most mornings and I’ve been wearing lots of his clothes around the house.  You’d think they would make maternity clothes long enough to cover a pregnant belly, but they don’t.

I’m still planning to work up until the baby comes, although I have to admit, it is getting harder and harder to focus.

We’re planning to keep the blog up to date with info when the baby does come, so check back often.

6 Weeks to Go!!

8 Mar
Well, I’m officially counting down the weeks now. 6 weeks to go!!! That’s if this baby decides to come on time, which everyone keeps warning me it won’t. Oh well, I still like saying I have 6 weeks left! After we took this months photo we decided to compare it to the one we took the day we found out I was pregnant. Needless to say, it was a little shocking. I feel like I don’t even look like the same person. The sun tan has faded, my hair has grown and gotten thicker, and of course there is the large baby belly.
Things with the pregnancy are going well. The baby is incredibly active and its so fun feeling and watching it move. The doctor says its growing
at the perfect rate, not too big, not too small. Lets hope it stays that way.
The nursery is coming along. My parents are bringing the crib next weekend!! We also found a cute dresser for the room. Its the perfect height for changing diapers and has lots of storage. Its an antique that we found on Craiglist, and I really like it. I’ll try to get some pictures up once the crib is in the room. We don’t have any decorations yet. I’m waiting to get stuff until after the baby is born so we can make it more gender specific.

30 Weeks!!!

9 Feb

We’re at 30 weeks now! Its hard to imagine that 10 weeks from now (assuming the baby comes on time) we’ll be holding our little one!!! I can’t wait. I’ve been feeling pretty good, although it is getting harder to tie my shoes and roll over in bed. We’ve starting seeing the Dr every 2 weeks now. The appointments are usually short; measure my uterus, listen to the baby’s heartbeat, pee in a cup. So far everything seems to be going great. The heartbeat is strong and everything measures perfectly.

We’re still working on pulling together the nursery. As I mentioned it is painted, but it doesn’t have much in it yet. We found a cute glider on craigslist that matches the green in the room. My dad is making the crib and it will come in March! We still need to find a dresser, and then I think we’ll be pretty much set for furniture.
