    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.

    Labor signs: Nope!

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

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

    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.

    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.

    30 Week Bumpdate | Baby #2

    How far along: 30 weeks! These last 10 weeks are going to FLY by you guys. I am so excited to meet this sweet girl.

    Baby is the size of a: A cantaloupe. My Ovia Pregnancy app says she is about 17 inches and 3 1/2 pounds! Holy moly.

    Weight gain: Still not thrilled about stepping on a scale anytime soon. Definitely over 20lbs at this point (especially after the holidays). I plan on working out a few times a week from here on out though!

    Maternity clothes: Yes! I really wish I had some cuter ones. I want to pick up a few more maternity clothes but at this point I feel like I mine as well suck it up this late in the game.  

    Sleep: I am still sleeping great!

    Gender: GIRL! 

    Movement: Still my Little night owl. Shae says she gets active around 11pm and I think he’s right. Makes me sad for the family because nobody has felt her but Shae and I!

    Best moment this week: CHRISTMAS! We had an amazing Christmas.

    Looking forward to: Getting back home from vacation. As much as we love visiting our family, it’s always so nice to get back home and get in our routine.

    Food cravings: I really can’t think of anything besides ice and ice cream!

    Anything make you sick or queasy: No!

    Labor signs: No. Same old Braxton Hicks though. I feel like some of them are painful and uncomfortable which isn’t fun!

    Symptoms: So many Braxton hicks contractions still, exhausted, uncomfortable and waddling around like a duck, bloated!

    Belly button in or out: In!

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Exhausted most of the time but still happy!

    Maternity clothes: I live in maternity clothes you guys. I’m not trying to be any more uncomfortable than I already am!

    Sleep: I’m not even sure how I could function if I wasn’t getting sleep. I’m tired by 8pm and want to sleep until 8am. Thankfully Everlee wakes at 8 so I get to soak in a little extra sleep.

    Gender: GIRL! 💗💗💗

    Movement: I think I’ve discovered why I never feel this little lady all day, it’s because she is up partying all night! I was up with Everlee one night and little baby was having a dance party all night long
