    39 Week Bumpdate | Baby #2

    How far along: 39 weeks and feeling it!!

    Baby is the size of a: A pumpkin. Makes sense because my stomach is the size of a pumpkin.

    Weight gain: 27lbs as of last week, but have an appointment on Tuesday morning to get an exact amount.

    Maternity clothes: Yes. What I miss being pregnant in the summer was being able to put on a dress and calling it a day. It’s so cold right now that I’m so uncomfortable trying to bundle up!

    Sleep: I have been sleeping like crap the last few days because I’ve been miserable and sick. I’ve been napping during the day when Everlee naps but nights are not fun.

    Gender: GIRL! 

    Movement: At the beginning of the week I felt like she was hardly moving, but she’s been pretty active the last few days.

    Best moment this week: It hasn’t been the greatest week because I’ve been sick, but I would say spending one last weekend together as a family of 3.

    Looking forward to: Going into labor!

    Food cravings: All I’ve wanted is sprite for my sore throat and also pop tarts have sounded good all week.

    Anything make you sick or queasy: Nope.  

    Labor signs: Unfortunately no, and it’s a little discouraging.

    What I miss: Being able to take medicine when I am sick!

    Symptoms: Super out of breath, Braxton Hicks that go into my back, exhausted.

    Belly button in or out: I would say we have reached the point where it is completely flat.

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Miserable. I hate to complain but being sick is really kicking my ass!

    34 Weeks | Baby #2

    How far along: 34 weeks! 

    Baby is the size of a: A Savoy Cabbage. This big girl is around 5lbs and 18in long!!!

    Weight gain: 21lbs at my 32 week appt so my guess is probably around 25lbs.

    Maternity clothes: Absolutely!

    Sleep: I am a grouch without my sleep this week.

    Gender: GIRL! 

    Movement: Still going crazy in there! I actually got a pretty cool video of her rolling in my stomach. Surprising, because she always stops when I try to record. Stubborn girl!

    Best moment this week: Shae’s mom visiting us yesterday and staying with us. We had such a great time spending time with her!

    Looking forward to: Not having to roll off the couch and bed. And also looking forward to not sounding like a grunting cow when I’m trying to get up. Haha!

    Food cravings: Chips and guac, Oranges and strawberry jelly. Oh my gosh, I’ve been having a bagel or English muffin with jelly almost every morning. Or a peanut butter and jelly.

    Anything make you sick or queasy: Nope! 

    Labor signs: Nope!

    What I miss: My old self. I’m still feeling in a slump and I’m ready to be myself again!

    Symptoms: Lots of Braxton Hicks (still), back pain, tired. Nothing really new!

    Belly button in or out: In! Although it is starting to come close to being flat.

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Not myself. But I know it’s hormones and being tired and just a combination of those.

    33 Week Bumpdate | Baby #2

    How far along: 33 weeks! 

    Baby is the size of a: A head of cauliflower and about 4lbs!

    Weight gain: 21lbs as of my last appointment! I only gained 2lbs since my 28 week appointment. YAY!

    Maternity clothes: Yes! And also, Shae’s shirts are a go to while I’m at home.

    Sleep: I have been so greedy with sleep. All I want to do is sleep. I sleep fine other than having to wake up and legit roll out of bed twent times a night to pee. Not fun.

    Gender: GIRL!

    32 Week Bumpdate | Baby #2

    How far along: 32 weeks! 

    Baby is the size of a: A Florida Pomelo. Whatever that is?

    Weight gain: My appointment is on Tuesday, so I will probably come back and add it here then!

    Maternity clothes: Yes! I live in maternity leggings and crew neck sweaters.

    Sleep: I have been sleeping great again! I actually started sleeping without my pregnancy pillow and I’ve noticed a huge difference. Having more room hasn’t helped me a lot!

    Gender: GIRL! 

    Movement: Some. She has been pretty chill in there again. I was just thinking about how odd it is that I haven’t felt her get the hiccups yet. Everlee has the hiccups multiple times a day!

    Best moment this week: Having my mom, step dad, brother, cousin Kaylee and aunt Ton came over to our house yesterday and visited us for the day. We had the best time!

    Looking forward to: My 32 week appointment in a couple of days. So crazy that we are already at 8 months pregnant! I think after my next appointment we start doing weekly appointments! I have a feeling time is going to fly by.

    Food cravings: Really only ice but someone mentioned an Oreo McFlurry the other day and then I wanted a McFlurry so bad!

    Anything make you sick or queasy: Nope! 

    Labor signs: Nope!

    What I miss: Feeling good about myself. I’ve been feeling pretty down about how I look lately. Despite knowing I’m growing a baby.

    Symptoms: Still constantly having Braxton Hicks. But besides that, nothing really comes to mind. My feet have been hurting if I am walking on them a lot. I really have been feeling great this week, besides always being so tired.

    Belly button in or out: In!

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Completely and utterly tired! I swear I’ve been feeling like this since before Christmas and I just can’t seem to snap out of it.
