^^And this is what you get when you’re too lazy to get out the tripod… or put on a shirt, apparently.^^ Before you get too excited, we are still only 38 weeks but this was my original due date that I was not so secretly hoping would reveal itself as the actual due date ;) But really, this pregnancy has gone by so fast, I’m happy this little one has made itself comfy in there. […]

40 Weeks – Happy due date baby!

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Today is what we shall call her sentimental due date. It was the date I got when I first found out I was pregnant and had happily cemented it in my mind until our doctors appointment, many weeks later, that involved bursting my Jan 8th bubble and correcting it to Jan 9th. Stupid bubble bursting doctors. Alas, I will always be fond of January 8th. Plus, it’s her great grandmothers birthday so that would have […]

Hey guess what! This is the year my daughter is going to be born! How far along? 39 weeks Weight Gained: Sigh.. 32.5 lbs. And this is about the time I curl up in a ball and ask my husband to come console his giant wife. Symptoms: Sciatica has come back with a revenge once more. I’m getting a taste of what I’ll look like when I’m an elderly woman. On top of the spasms that make me […]

How far along? 38 weeks Weight Gained: 29.5 whopping pounds… oh Christmas. Symptoms: I told my midwife my hands and feet were swollen and she just laughed at me. Really guys, they are so itchy all the time and feel like massive sausages even if you can’t really tell from looking at them. Come to think of it, all of me feels itchy and expanding. It must just be that time. Movement: She’s an ever moving little creature. […]

Oh my goodness… How far along? 37 weeks…. whaaat!? Weight Gained: 27.5 lbs Symptoms: Anxiety, hyperventilation, and insomnia. Just kidding, but sorta not. Well, this is becoming very real, very fast yet at the same time I still can’t wrap my little brain around what will be happening so very soon. I really hope it wraps eventually. COME ON BRAIN. I definitely feel like she’s dropped so, well, that’s pretty crazy. That nose of mine is still working on overdrive. […]

One more week! One more week! One more week! And then she can come anytime!!!! Oh my goodness! How far along? 36 weeks Weight Gained: 28 lbs Symptoms: That dog pretty much has one good quality. He usually smells amazing (for a big dog) and has pretty good smelling breath. My nose no longer agrees. I can smell him in all his glory from across the room and it is not my favorite. All my joints are […]

How far along? 35 weeks Weight Gained: 27 lbs. Bye bye target weight :'( Symptoms: Are violent sneezes a pregnancy symptom? Mine have become other earthly. Greg said they literally hurt his ears. Also, the embarrassing symptoms are saying hello again ….probably on account of the sneezing… And my bladder is apparently the size of a pea. Movement: Oh :) We took her to a concert this weekend and she either really loved it or really hated it because she […]

Oh boy oh boy oh boy! I can’t believe this little one is full term in three weeks!!! Now that’s something to be thankful for! How far along? 34 weeks Weight Gained: 25.5 lbs. This week we had Greg strap on our 16 lb turkey with an extra 10 lb hand weight to give this lady some sympathy as to why I’ve been tired all the time. I was shocked how heavy them pounds are! Shocked, […]

A durian. That’s how big this baby is. I have no idea what that is or how to even eat it but apparently we are just running out of recognizable items. On average they say she’s *around* 4lbs and measuring *around* 17in long. I get claustrophobic just thinking about her being all scrunched up in there. And changing the subject.. How far along? 33 weeks Weight Gained: 26 lbs… aaaand we are back up. Symptoms: I got […]

How far along? 32 weeks Weight Gained: 23 lbs Symptoms: Well, I cry a lot, but that’s nothing new. Small hills or sometimes just sitting up leaves me completely out of breath. In fact, I just sat up and Greg said, “well those were a lot of noises…” I’m a grunting, huffing, lady of grace these days. Movement: I was sure she was gone this week cause all her little kicks seemed to disappear :( I must say I […]
