Maternity clothes: I’m wearing all maternity tops and pants.

Stretch marks: Unfortunately they have been there since I was younger seeing as though I have struggled with my weight all of my life.

Miss anything? Wine
 
Food cravings: Sweet and salty snacks.
 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: Surprisingly still on...but I still don't think it will be for much longer. :(

Week 28 Bumpdate


Bump Update

How far along? 28 weeks

Total weight gain: Up 18.4 lbs. When they weighed me last week, I had only gained 1.4 lbs in the last month. That is really good compared to earlier months and the fact that I had gone through the holidays with only gaining that little.
 
Maternity clothes: I’m wearing all maternity tops and pants.

Stretch marks: Unfortunately they have been there since I was younger seeing as though I have struggled with my weight all of my life.
    
Sleep: Sleeping has been alright for me. I was still getting up every every hour and a half to 3 hours until the last couple days. The hip pains aren't as bad also, so I am not finding that I am waking up from those as much.

Best moment this week: Hearing little man's heartbeat at our appointment last Wednesday. 160 bpm!!!

Miss anything? Wine
 
Food cravings: Lately it's been milk shakes or Blizzards! :/
 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.

Gender: BOY!!!!

Symptoms: I'm peeing a lot. My chest is getting bigger. I've been getting sciatic nerve pains and a lot of lower back pains. I've also been getting round ligament pain in my groin area when I stand up from sitting for awhile or even when I'm sleeping.
 
Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: Surprisingly still on...but I don't think for much longer. :(

Happy or moody most of the time: I'm happy most of the time. :)

Nursery Progress

Last January we were about to have a frozen embryo transfer after having a failed fresh cycle in October of 2013. I thought for sure that we would end up pregnant with the FET, so I emptied out a room in our house and gave the room a fresh coat of (gray) paint. I wrote about it in this blog post: Future Nursery = Painted. I would say that unfortunately we did not get a BFP, but I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. If we had gotten pregnant, we would not have this little miracle growing inside me right now. This little man was meant for us. 

Anyways, we've been working a lot on the nursery lately, so I wanted to share the pictures with you ladies. :) It is by far done, but there we have done a lot. Hopefully, the baby shower on March 1st will help us complete the room.

Week 26 Bumpdate


Bump Update

How far along? 26 weeks

Maternity clothes: I’m wearing all maternity tops and pants.

Stretch marks: Unfortunately they have been there since I was younger seeing as though I have struggled with my weight all of my life.
    
Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty well. I wake up and have to pee about every hour and a half to three hours. Sometimes when I wake up, I am laying on my back and then I get worried about that.

Best moment this week: Ordering his dresser and crib. Mike just picked them up from Babies R Us last night! :)

Happy or moody most of the time: When I am at work I am moody. When I am home, I am happy, but oh so tired. I don't think this will change. Christmas break was wonderful. Then we went back for an institute day, had the kids for a day, and the last two days have been "snow/cold" days.
 
Looking forward to: Hearing his heartbeat at our appointment on Wednesday of next week.
