26 Weeks!

How far along? 26 weeks!

Weight gain: I am going to add this section so I can keep track better. I am up 14 pds. Going back to my 26 week post with Krew. I was up 17 pds. My doctor has told me to up my caloric in-take but it's been hard for me. I'm constantly eating but constantly running around whether at work or chasing Krew. 

Maternity clothes? Yep.

Stretch marks? No! I oil and lotion up two or three times a day!

Sleep: It's been ok, I wake up sore as hell and I have had to switch sides a lot or baby girl seems to get stuck in one position.

Best moment this week: We saw her cute face on Tuesday and she was sticking her tongue out at daddy! So cute! We also painted her room last weekend!! That counts right?

Miss Anything? My closet, laying on my belly, being able to roll on the floor and wrestle with the boys!

Movement: I feel her lots at night before bed and if I am up through the nighttime. I love it and daddy feels her more too!

Food cravings: Fresh fruit ALWAYS, eggs, cheeseburgers, and sandwiches..

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: None praising the lord.

Symptoms: I had an ultrasound on Tuesday to check the length of my cervix. Everything looks great and the only reason I would deliver early is because I did with Krew but all in all my body is reacting just as it should to the progesterone injections which makes me so happy because they are a bitch!!

Belly Button in or out? Almost out.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Mood: I've been feeling great. Krew has been sick with croup and an ear infection and now Ryan is sick so I am a little exhausted from taking care of them! I need a vacation!

Looking forward to: I'm hoping Ryan feels up to putting the crib up this weekend!
Lots of snuggles from the boys this weekend!

25 weeks!

How far along? 25 weeks!

Maternity clothes? Yep, like I said in my last post I am 100% in maternity/stretchy clothes. I found some rockin' yoga leggins' from Target that I will be able to wear again after this babe comes and they are my favorite (they are not maternity)! I have tried to avoid buying a lot of "maternity" clothes but I am LOVING the ruched sides in shirts these days! With Krew I was never confident to show dis bump off! Now, I am. Crazy how motherhood will change that for round 2!

Stretch marks? No! I get so damn itchy though. Whenever I get itchy I just slather lotion and oil on!

Sleep: Honestly, it sucks lately. I have tried Tylenol PM and it's the only thing that doesn't make me drowsy the next day!

Best moment this week:  We celebrated my dads birthday on Monday with a seafood boil at our house. We love hosting dinner parties at our new pad. It was a ton of fun!

Miss Anything? Yes, the obvious. My clothes, drinks, running to my fullest potential.

Movement: I do not feel her through the day! When I'm ready for bed she dances around like crazy! Ryan has FINALLY felt some pretty good kicks and I am starting to see them from the outside!

Food cravings: Still fresh fruit. My latest is raspberries and strawberries. I am hoping this isn't an issue when it comes to my GD test in a few weeks!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: They have subsided a lot the past week. I had an infection going on so my doctor gave me an antibiotic and that really seemed to help my contractions!

Symptoms: I'm tired A LOT. Ryan has been awesome about giving me time to nap and taking Krew out so I can relax. I appreciate it more than he knows. I know I only have about 5-7 more weeks of feeling ok. Once I hit the 30-32 week mark I know I will have to slow down A LOT more. Something I didn't know when I was pregnant with Krew. I went into early labor at 32 weeks, this time I definitely know what I need to do to avoid that. My goal is to avoid bed rest and just take things easy after 30 weeks.

Belly Button in or out? Gosh it's almost out! Bye bye innie!

Wedding rings on or off? For the most part. Some days it gets really tight and uncomfortable.

Mood: I've been feeling awesome and the weather has been perfect for walks after work! I think exercising has really helped me keep my mood up. Plus Krew and our dog love the walks!

Looking forward to:  We have an ultrasound on Tuesday so I can't wait to see little lady again! Also, we are starting on the landscaping of our new backyard next week! Can't wait to play out there with my boys and our little girl! I should note that we also picked a paint color for the nursery and will probably get that up in the next week or so!


2 3 w e e k s!

How far along? This picture was taken last week at exactly 23 weeks!

Maternity clothes? I am completely out of normal clothes. I have maybe 2 things that still fit. I am going on a hunt this weekend to find some "cute" maternity clothes. Most of the things I wear are maternity.

Stretch marks? No! Thanking my lucky stars!

Sleep: I've been so tired lately! It's like the last 3 months have just caught up with me. I went to bed at 8:00 last night. It felt awesome!

Best moment this week:  I feel little lady lots more! I have also been loving all of Krews kisses he gives to baby sissy! Melt my heart!

Miss Anything? Being skinny. Going shopping for clothes I will be able to wear!

Movement: This has really ramped up in the last couple weeks! 

Food cravings: Yes! Fresh veggies and fruit! Love it!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.

Gender: Baby lady. Also, we don't have a name. ha!

Labor Signs: Yep, I've been contracting a lot the last few days. My doctor thinks they are irritability contractions but I have another cervical check next week just to play it safe! So hoping to avoid bedrest.

Symptoms: Just tired all the time and I'm sore all over. With Krew I wasn't this uncomfortable so early on. My tailbone has been so painful lately!

Belly Button in or out? I think I only have a couple more weeks with an innie!

Wedding rings on or off? Depends on the day! So sad.

Mood: I've been feeling great! 

Looking forward to:  Krew is having his FIRST sleepover with his cousins on Friday and Ryan and I are going out for Valentines Day and a few work accomplishments he has done so well in! I can't wait!!
