30 Weeks

How far along?  30 weeks

Maternity clothes?
  Oh yes.  We are definitely good friends at this point.


Stretch marks?
  None - which makes me so happy and thankful. Hopefully I'll escape another pregnancy with none.


Sleep: 
It's not the greatest.  Between not getting comfy, staying up way too late editing, and not being able to sleep due to my mind never shutting off, I have huge bags under my eyes daily.


Best moment this week:
 
Again, so late on this.  So I'm answering in the now.  Best moment would be Monday afternoon.  After a lot of hard work between C&I we finished Vinny's DIY headboard for his big boy bed.  It looks so awesome - which is a separate post all together.

Miss Anything? 
My toes. 


Movement:
  Always - I love it.


Food cravings:
  I'm on the trail mix kick again.  I can't explain it.  And ice.  I love crunching ice, which I know is horrible for your teeth.  I was addicted to doing it while pregnant with Vinny also.


Anything making you queasy or sick:
  Nope!


Gender:
I'm going to say girl until the date he/she arrives given that this pregnancy has been so different.

 
Labor Signs:
  No.


Belly Button in or out?
  Out!


Wedding rings on or off?
  Off. 


Happy or Moody most of the time: 
Why isn't emotional wreck an option?


Looking forward to: 
Friday because it's mani/pedi day. 

29 Weeks

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Late posting this, again.  It's beginning to be the story of my life these days.



How far along?  29 weeks

Maternity clothes?
  Of course.  I dare not to even try to squeeze in normal clothes (pants mostly) at this point.


Stretch marks?
  None - which makes me so happy and thankful.


Sleep: 
Sleeping good still until about 1:30/2:00 a.m.  Then it's toss and turn central for me.  A lot of facebook stalking happens at that point.


Best moment this week:
 
Since I'm answering in the now I'm going to have to say our maternity photo shoot with my good friend, Natalie.  It's always a good time when she photographs us. Vinny sported a bow tie and he was the handsomest thing on this planet.  I'm dying to see our pics.

Miss Anything? 
Sleep right now.


Movement:
  Always - I love it.


Food cravings:
  Chocolate milk this week. 


Anything making you queasy or sick:
  Nope!


Gender:
Still thinking girl.  I purchased a few headbands on Etsy last week to bring to the hospital - just in case we are dealt a girl.  Surprisingly, holding those tiny little headbands kinda makes me hope for a girl this time around. 

 
Labor Signs:
  No.


Belly Button in or out?
  Out!


Wedding rings on or off?
  Off.  Off.  So, so off.  I did something really dumb.  Since we were having our maternity photo shoot I wanted to wear my rings for the photos.  Can't blame a girl, right?  Granted, they have been off for a few weeks due to my swollen fingers/hands.  But, I managed to get them on easily enough and proceeded to our shoot.  That night there was no budging them off.  Sunday I tried everything - soap, lotion, Vaseline, Windex, preparation H, oil.  Nothing worked.  My fingers just seemed to grow and grow every time I tried something new.  By Monday my rings were so tight and wedged on that I couldn't even twist them.  They started cutting into my skin causing me to  bleed.  Sadly, I had to go to our jeweler and get them cut off.  I'm devastated.  I cried when they were cut.  I could still cry thinking of it.  But on the flip side I don't need my finger amputated and my rings can (and will) be fixed once baby no. 2 gets here and my swelling subsides. But, regardless, it's something nobody wants to have happen. 


Happy or Moody most of the time: 
I'm a mixed bag at this point.


Looking forward to: 
Memorial Day weekend, of course!  I can't wait to spend it with my little family.

28 Weeks

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Oh man, I'm slacking.  I'm just about 29 weeks and I'm writing my 28 week post.  Well, better late than never, right?



How far along?  28 weeks

Maternity clothes?
  Yep, and loving it.  Comfort trumps fashion these days.


Stretch marks?
  None!


Sleep: 
I may have jinxed myself saying I'm sleeping like a rock in my last post.  The past few nights insomnia has set in, which of course leads to Esty purchases at 3:00 a.m.  Hopefully the insomnia ends soon or my checking account is going to suffer dramatically. 


Best moment this week:
  Since this post is late, again, I'm answering in the now.  I would definitely have to say Mother's Day.  It was such a nice and relaxing day spent with my boys.  They gifted me a new camera to boot! 


Miss Anything? 
Oh ya know, being skinny.


Movement:
  So much-all the time! 


Food cravings:
  This week it's been trail mix.  Random, I know.


Anything making you queasy or sick:
  Nope!


Gender:
I think I'm officially going to say girl.  Yep, that's what I'm going with.  Things this time around have been much different than my last pregnancy.   

 
Labor Signs:
  No.


Belly Button in or out?
  Out!


Wedding rings on or off?
  Off. 


Happy or Moody most of the time: 
I'm still on cloud 9 from receiving my new camera!  I've been lusting over it for over a year.


Looking forward to: 
My doctor appointment this Friday.  Hearing the heartbeat every time is so reassuring.

27 Weeks

Friday, May 2, 2014



How far along?  27 weeks

Maternity clothes?
  Of course.  Thankfully all of my maternity clothes I had with Vinny fits right into the same season this time around. 


Stretch marks?
  Surprisingly - not one!


Sleep: 
I'm sleeping like a rock lately.  So much to the fact that I woke myself up a few times snoring! 


Best moment this week:
  Leaving work on Wednesday.  It meant I was officially on vacation until May 6th.  Words can't even express how much relief I felt walking out of the elevator.  See ya day job!


Miss Anything? 
I'm off to AZ for my annual girls trip so naturally I'm going to miss C&V so much. 


Movement:
  So much.  It's so reassuring to know we have an active baby in there!


Food cravings:
  Milk, golden oreos and more milk.  Seriously, let's buy a cow already.


Anything making you queasy or sick:
  Nope!


Gender:
  I have no idea.  It's killing me a little not to buy some gender specific clothes, that's for sure.


Labor Signs:
  No.


Belly Button in or out?
  POP - it's out.


Wedding rings on or off?
  Off. 


Happy or Moody most of the time: 
Happy but I definitely had my bouts of crying spurts.  My emotions are definitely getting the best of me lately.  Thank you hormones. 


Looking forward to: 
My girls trip to AZ, seeing the sun, laying in the pool and catching up on some sleep!
