How far along: 34 weeks starting 35 week.
Weight gain: up a pound from last week
Maternity clothes: Nope and I wouldn't spend any money on them at this point. So my advice is if you are reading this and putting off buying maternity clothing and are uncomfortable just BUY them! They will make you feel so much better for the rest of your pregnancy. Who cares if you are only 15 weeks, you ll get longer use!
Stretch marks: Not yet
Belly button in or out: Out and flat and starting to darken already. Does this happen to everyone? Probably not.
Sleep: Insomnia is coming back, and since Im uncomfortable and hot and all the bathroom breaks, I can be up for a couple hours at a time. Dont worry though I get in bed at like 9:30 or 10!
Best moment this week: I had an appointment yesterday and got my cervix checked, I am already progressing so I am now going to start going every week! (Something I didnt do last time since I didnt make it past my 35 week appointment) I also got a shot for the babies lungs incase she comes early and I have to get another today! I just think of my kids and all the shots they get so its not so bad! So we will see how long little girl can hang in there! Its all up in the air. I like schedules so you can only imagine the number this does on me! I will probably start putting things in my hospital bag since I wasn't able to grab a few things I would've liked to have had last time.
My parents brought over the crib last weekend! Yay now all I need is the mattress and I think we are set. I really like her room, I cant wait to spend time in there! Especially since there is a queen bed for me ;)!
I think we decided on a name, we had a name really early on and have kind of parted from it... So people might be surprised when it probably wont be that! I dont think I will share what we have chosen since ya never know if we will change again.
Miss anything: uh oxygen when I lay on my back, or just laying on my stomach haha!
Movement: Knees, elbows and all of that
Cravings: Turkey sandwiches! Subway or Gandolfos, and yes I eat deli meat/hot dogs/ and sometimes tuna.
Queasy or sick: Yes I feel like throwing up right now! I have been mildly nauseous morning and night for about a week.
Looking forward to: I have some maternity pictures in about an hour and half! My friend ( Ashley Morgan Photography) who did our family pictures a few months back asked me If I would pose for her! So here goes nothing! I am actually really glad cause this is the style I wanted done anyways! ( I just added this photo from this morning)

How far along: 34 weeks
Weight gain: 131 at last appointment. 2 more to go till I pass my last pregnancy ah!!
Maternity clothes: Not unless a belly bandit in a different size counts. Im really looking forward to seeing if I will like that thing.
Stretch marks: Not yet
Belly button in or out: Out and starting to get that dark line down the middle, Grant asks me why I have a happy trail and I cry every time and say "its not hair! " (tmi!)
Sleep: Good if I don't take a nap during the day, I just love to hit the pillow at night!!
Best moment this week: This weather. This is the best day Ive had in awhile and I give all the credit to the sunlight. We got to play on our porch with chalk, go on a walk and play at the park with friends! At one point I was in a tank top?! K so its only like 54 as a high and I feel like its 75+ heaven help me and my hot flashes.
Miss anything: Not having to plan out how much water I can drink before going out cause I know Ill be doubled over holding my pee.
Movement: Feels like a little human is in there!
Cravings: Fresca craving continues, Thank goodness Wes can share chocolate donuts with me cause we live within walking distance from the grocery store!
Queasy or sick: Not really.
Looking forward to: My sweet friend is throwing me a baby shower tomorrow night!

How far along: Just getting started on my 32 week
Weight gain: Same as last post.
Maternity clothes: No more, I did get some new PINK sweats so Im thrilled about that.
Stretch marks: Not yet
Belly button in or out: Out
Sleep: I have a cold, the driest sinuses, my gums and eyes are so swollen and its always so much worse at night. Also I have been getting up probably twice a night to like what seems like 2 trickles of pee out haha!
Best moment this week: We have had a hell of a February over here so far. It started with Wes cutting multiple teeth at once and getting a diaper rash that had to be treated from all the diarrhea he wouldnt eat or drink hardly anything. Then we were in the doctor for this freaking rash I have had on my hands for months that started to show up on Wes and Grant. Next Grant had the cold/flu well Wes had it the past week and it has been awful! He had (still has) a fever and the runniest nose. Im guessing he had a sore throat too. He was extrememly touchy and so irratable. So once again barely barely eating or drinking. Luckily my mom rescued me and we got pedicures and lunch on Saturday and that was such a relief! So anyways we had this Vegas trip all booked and planned starting Sunday and decided to go for it. And it was a success, even though he was a little sick he loved being out of the house and it was all around a good time!
Miss anything: Right now all my cold symptoms are out weighing the pregnant ones. But good heavens I can wait to have my old face back. I feel like Kim Kardashian when she was pregnant, like so fat her voice even sounded chubby. (does anyone know what i mean??)
Movement: Not as quick and crazy anymore, its more like a kick and the foot/hand stays there for a few seconds.
Queasy or sick: Yes but not pregnancy related.
Looking forward to: Yes the babies room is STILL not set up. :(

How far along: 30 weeks
Weight gain: up one or two more from the last post.
Maternity clothes: Just some maternity leggings from Old Navy yesterday. They are comfortable but Im not way impressed. The waist band is lowrise so hopefully Ill be able to wear them a few months after I have the baby.
Stretch marks: Not yet :/
Belly button in or out: Out
Sleep: Just fine. I didn't get as many naps this week but I had one today and I needed it! I have been such a heater every night. These hormones!
Best moment this week: I do not want to jynx it but I have been able to breath a lot better when sitting and laying. The baby must have changed positions and is giving me some relief! I swear sometimes I could even forget I am pregnant.
Miss anything: Energy. I only get about one wind a day. It is so hard for me to get going somedays. I also will feel so bummed out some days and will be fine the next. I hope my hormones level out soon. But from what I can remember they only get crazier!!
Movement: Yep getting squishy in there for her though.
Cravings: I just said "I want cheesecake" the kind with the cheeries on it mmm! Also those cherry m&ms for valentines day and juju hearts! Sounds like I want cherry flavored things. Oh yeah and the super soft sugar cookies with the bright colored frosting and sprinkles on them from the grocery store.
Queasy or sick: Feeling pretty good. I can tell my joints are getting looser though, sometimes when I get up from sitting I can feel my hips get back in place.
Looking forward to: Getting my baby's crib set up! I have 10 weeks till my due date and I am so anxious, I know when she gets here I will think it went so fast. But its not going fast and I want her!

Well my app notified me yesterday that I've hit the third trimester. I should've notified it cause don't I know it?! Wes and I are just having some play time with his toys before his nap and listening to a little Disney Pandora station. Today is the second time I've almost burst into tears at the lyrics to you'll be in my heart from Tarzan. Is that the perfect mother/baby song or am I hormonal or what!?
So just a little update with whats going on with us currently
Wes- Will be 18 months this Sunday! His favorite foods right now are- ramen noodles, shredded wheat, bananas, grapes, pasta, french fries, fruit snacks chocolate milk and chocolate chips. He is such an explorer, he wanders around constantly learning about his surroundings. He loves to play with his basketball hoop and in his tent (usually where he poops). He likes his toothbrush to be his companion, so I have one in my diaper bag in case. His favorite Tv shows are Baby Einstein (brings us the disk or xbox remote ) and Paw Patrol. He says a few words, (a list from the top of my head); Dad, mom, NiNi (Mia), Mouuuse (mickey), Da (dog) Maow (cat), Hi, Nigh nigh (goodnight) , and other assorted animal sounds and expressions that have meaning to him. He hop jumped for the first time the other day and I swear I almost cried it was so cute! We have been learning about frogs lately.
Me- Just being an oven for a little one. I am in severe nesting mode but haven't really started! It's hard for me because I have the "needs" and I just crave the "wants" like fancy gliders, decorations, and all that fun stuff moms live for. I have a little bit of cabin fever since the weather is still cold and I can't just spend money all day! I am a pretty busy person by nature so I can only handle being in the house for so long. I am addicted to my bath and body works mentha lip balm (I have like 8 tubes) and VS boyfriend sweats while Im in the house. I'm bored with my hair but know better than to make any changes right now. Looking forward to February cause of our anniversary and all those pink and red hearts!
Grant- Just shaved his beard he has been working on since mid October last night. Spends his afternoon at the gym. Been working on building up his team and planning for his upcoming sales season in Kentucky. He is Westley's absolute hero. Sometimes it cramps my style cause Wes will do what his dad is doing over what I want him to every. single. time. I'm excited to see Grant with his daughter cause he is such a loving patient father to Westley.

|Out the door to sacrament yesterday|
How far along? 27.5
Total weight gain: 15+
Maternity clothes? Nothing new. I like looser fitting shirts and I don't find that maternity is very loose.
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Not as well with all the weird dreams. I could do without those. My dream last night was so weird it kept me awake.
Best moment this week: I have no idea, pretty average not a lot of progress in baby stuff.
Miss Anything? Being able to twist around to help Wes in the car seat
Movement: Yep, really spastic shakes. Weird
Food cravings: Ihop pancakes
Anything making you queasy or sick: Same as last week. I should get a snack before bed, but by that time Ive already tried everything in the pantry and am sick of my choices.
Gender Prediction: Still going with the girl
Labor Signs: No, I had bad like menstrual cramps on Sunday and Monday that I was worried about. THe nurse said to come in and be seen cause of my history but the doctor basically said that if they get worse go to the hospital and then basically all they can do is put me on bed rest. I would DIE if I had to be on bed rest! So im taking it easy, not working out as much and trying to drink more water.
Symptoms: Kid in me- moving my ribs and organs around.
Belly Button in or out? It hasn't changed in months so I guess its the way its going to be for awhile. Unless I get that linea niagra (sp?) again.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Life is good.
Looking forward to- Childbirth!
Monday, December 30, 2013
I was driving home last night from my parents house looking at all of the decorated houses and thought to myself "what is better than this time of year" for real though? We had such a fun Christmas week together as a family, I am already looking forward to next year! Now that Westley has more of a grasp of life (haha) it will be fun to make traditions and teach him about Santa Clause and baby Jesus.
On the 23rd we made this snowman in our backyard. Wes was begging to play outside for days. I had to gather up layers and layers of clothing for us. I hate being cold so getting him snowsuit had not crossed my mind. Maybe next year when he can go sledding I'll fork out one. Anyways, The snow was perfect for snow people, I actually saw a lot of snowmen in peoples front yards that day! Basically I started the balls and Grant had to do the stacking and packing.The eyes and buttons are oreo balls that were left over from grants birthday and the mouth is just cereal! I think its the cutest snowman ever and we were so proud of it. After we came in the house and got all our extra clothing off and looked out the window.. it had already collapsed! We are waiting for the next snowfall to make another.
This is the best picture I got of our stuff on Christmas eve after Westley got in bed. I wish i didn't put the presents to far back in the tree so you could see the stash! Grant totally spoiled us all this year! I already took the tree and decorations down, I missed having my simple house! It was really fun setting up the toys for Wes.
Yes my house is a complete playground. I hate all the toys but I'd rather him go to town on them than watch TV all day! He loves his little farm and mickey wagon he got. My favorite things ever he has been doing since summer is when it gets silent and I look over to see what he is doing and he is quietly readying a book! This is the outfit I made him wear on Christmas day, I am all about the clothes being shades for red for the week leading up to christmas!
The thing is, he had the hardest come down of the century the day after Christmas! Holy cow, I was so sad where my little buddy went. He was refusing to eat and drink, refusing to nap and go down for the night, refusing to play with me! What a nightmare. Back he seems to be back in true form and stealing my heart again. This is of him on the way to the dreaded apple store the day after Christmas. We know he likes fries so it was worth a try and yes he did eat them and a large chocolate milk.
Grant is in Mexico on a business trip (sort of?) for the week with no communication. I'll be celebrating the New Year probably a few hours early by myself and at midnight with the inside of my eyelids and I couldn't be more content about it!
