28, 29 and 30 weeks

I am starting to slack off with this whole weekly posting. Lets be honest, I have been for a while. I just have not felt like blogging lately and the farther along I get the less I want a picture taken of me. I promised myself I would keep up with it the whole pregnancy though so here goes!

How far along: 30 weeks and 5 days. Time is flying by lately!

Size of baby: 18 inches, approx 3.2 lbs.

Gender: A sweet little boy (and he has a name now but its a secret until he gets here!!!)

Movement: All day, all the time. I love it.

Sleep: Sleep is rough. I have developed a little acid reflux issue the past few weeks so when I lay down at night it seems to get even worse. Stomach aches all night are no fun. This morning at about 5am I had to get up and eat saltines and chug water to keep from puking. Its like 1st trimester all over again!

Maternity clothes: Yes and starting to wear Sayers clothes as well (just to sleep in). The belly is growing a lot.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, pelvic pressure and overall just feeling a bit cramped in my own skin. But my energy is good and I am feeling healthy otherwise.

Aversions: None really.

Cravings: Nothing really the past few weeks. Just hungry all the time!

What I Miss: Feeling like myself. I feel so blessed to be pregnant but my body is starting to not feel like my own and some days I am ok with that. Today is not one of those days.

Best moment this week: Working on stuff for the nursery. I found a cute little Jenny Lind style kids rocker at a consignment sale and we picked out a cute yellow to paint it. I also finished his DIY sheep mobile. I can't wait to put them both in the new house.

What I am looking forward to: Closing on our house in 3 weeks! I am so ready to get in and get his nursery ready. I am excited about the rest of the house as well but mainly just setting up his space. I have been working on projects and doing lots of planning so I cant wait to put it all together.

baby bag

I am on the hunt for a diaper bag for baby N. I have come across a bunch that I like but these are a few of my favorites. Trying to decide between something bright and fun or something more muted. I know the gray, black or navy will go with more but I just love both of these aqua bags. Maybe I need 2!

my baby daddy

This is a post about Sayer. I don't usually do these cheesy post but with all the pregnancy hormones floating around I can't help myself. Nothing will make you love your husband more then being pregnant. I have heard it gets even worse once the baby comes. I know I will loose it the moment I see Sayer holding our baby boy. Some days I don't know how I got so lucky. I really don't. He has been so supportive through all the ups and downs of this pregnancy. And there have been a LOT of downs.

I pretty much freak out every time I have a new pain or symptom and he is always supportive and comforting. He also helps to knock some sense into me. Sometimes we need tough love. There have been countless times when I have gone off on him about absolutely nothing (like leaving pot roast out over night instead of putting it away in Tupperware. Normal thing to get mad about right?!) and he just smiles and sometimes laughs. I have kept him awake with my constant peeing and tossing and turning and he never says a word. Sometimes he even reaches over and touches me after I have gotten up for the 12th time to pee just to let me know he is there.

I love when he gets really giddy and excited about the baby. And I love when he talks to him and sings to him. The baby loves it too because he always kicks and wiggles when Sayer gets down and talks to him. He is going to be such a great daddy and I am so excited for that day to be here.

I love you JSN. Thanks for being such a great baby daddy and life partner.

26 + 27 weeks

How far along:  27 weeks and 4 days. 3rd Trimester!! Wohoo!

Size of baby: 16 inches, 2.5 lbs. The size of a head of cauliflower (I don't get this!?)

Gender: A sweet little boy

Movement: LOTS of movement. I feel like he moves 24/7

Sleep: I am glad I enjoyed that week of good sleep that I mentioned because I have a feeling that is over with now. I never would have thought one person could pee so much.

Maternity clothes: Lots of stretchy stuff being worn.

Symptoms: I am having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions. I freaked out for about a week but my doctor says its perfectly normal so now I hardly blink an eye when I get one. They literally happen all day long.

Aversions: None really.

Cravings: Sweets. Preferably chocolate which is so weird because I have always been a salty girl.

What I Miss: Honestly. Drinking wine with girlfriends over dinner. I find myself turning down dinners lately just because I cant drink wine. I know that sounds pathetic and so selfish. Just keeping it real.

Best moment this week: WE GOT A HOUSE!!! After a few months of looking and putting several offers on what were the wrong houses for us we found THE house and if everything goes according to plan she will be all ours March 21st. YAY for baby having a nursery.

What I am looking forward to: My glucose test next week. I know that sounds odd because most people dread that appointment but after that I start going to the doctor every 2 weeks which means baby is getting really close to being here so for that I am excited.
