27 Weeks!

How far along? 27 weeks! Finally entered my third trimester!
Total weight gain/loss: 16+ pounds
Maternity clothes? that and yoga pants. I can't even begin to fit into pre pregnancy jeans.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep:  I can sleep anywhere but finding a good position is hard because the baby either gets super low on my right side or super high into my ribs on my right side so it makes it hard to lay on my side because he's pushing so hard against it!
Best moment this week: I just love all the wiggles, hiccups and kicks I feel!
Miss Anything? Being able to find comfortable positions to sleep and sit in.. and having ankles... I think I officially have cankles! ugh!
Movement: Hiccups, kicks, punches, rolling around. 
Food cravings: FRUIT! esp strawberries (with whipped cream!) and melons and grapes and bananas! Also been craving sweets but that's nothing new!
Anything making you queasy or sick: meat!
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: heartburn has gotten a little better but since the baby favors my right side, I'm either in pain in my right side in my ribs or really low down. The other day he was so low that every time I peed I got reaaaallly sharp pains because of round ligament pain growth. It sucked big time!
Labor Signs: Nope
Middle Name decided? Noah
Belly Button in or out? still barely in.
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPPPPPY. 
Looking forward to: Getting this glucose screening over with this week (and hopefully passing!) and then hoping to get a 3d/4d ultrasound done since I found somewhere that cost way less than at our OB's office. I would love to see his little face! and I'm still a skeptic and need to CONFIRM that it's really a boy ;)

Maternity Picture Ideas!

So as I finish up my second trimester this week, I can't help but get excited for all the things that are to come in my third and final trimester!! As of now, I will be having not one, not two, but THREE baby showers (yay?)... then there's MATERNITY PICTURES... then finally, my beautiful son will be born!! I've always been big into pictures so I thought I'd compile a bunch of pictures on here since I still haven't found a photographer that I love (and that is cheap enough) to do these pictures. Some of these are just ones I found on the internet and some are friends' pictures! If you see these and think of any great photographers in the area that might be good for me, please help a girl out!! :)

25 & 26 weeks!

This is a two-for-one since I forgot to post last week! But at least this week is finally on time. If this is any indication of how I'll be in motherhood, we have a problem. I cannot stop doing everything but what I need to do! And there is just too much to do these days :( and I know it will just get worse when this little rugrat enters the picture! But for now, he is in my belly and I can just waddle along until he's here. (and I deffff mean waddle...)

How far along? 26 weeks... almost to the third trimester! holy cow!
Total weight gain/loss: 16 pounds at my appt yesterday... I gained 4 lbs in a week and a half! 
Maternity clothes? Yep and so excited I found a maternity section in the VERY back corner of the old navy near my house. so excited!!
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: not the best. Sunday night I laid in bed from 10pm to almost 3am and my mind just kept racing and wouldn't shut up. I finally started playing solitaire on my phone just so I could get my eyes tired enough to stay closed. Then when I FINALLY manage to sleep, Ben is all restless and rolling and kicking me which wakes me up every five minutes because I'm such a light sleeper. Not to mention the leg cramps and heartburn... ugh
Best moment this week: hearing from a high school friend was nice and dropping M&Ms on the ground at sheetz and having a guy get them for me because he could see me contemplating picking them up since it's so hard to bend over with this belly. so funny. 
Miss Anything? a kid at my work is turning 21 this weekend and it made me super sad that I can't drink... thinking about buying a bottle of dark rum and putting a countdown calendar on it lol kidding... sorta... ha!
Movement: he's a mover for sure but a little less this week because he's starting a pattern I think.
Food cravings: strawberries and whipped cream! and random stuff.
Anything making you queasy or sick: meat!
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: Charlie horses, dizziness like you wouldn't believe,  HEARTBURN like whoaaa, hard to breathe, restless at night, peeing constantly and tired easily
Labor Signs: Nope
Middle Name decided? Noah
Belly Button in or out? still barely in.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody.. I've been in a weird funk the past couple weeks... 
Looking forward to: planning trips to take the little one on. He is going to be a world explorer like his mommy :)
