baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

How far along? 31 weeks! If we are pretending, as all baby sites do, that a baby takes exactly 40 weeks to develop, we have now reached single digits, folks! Weight Gained: 22.5 lbs… well going down is a first. Symptoms: It seems all my first trimester symptoms seem to be saying hello again. They must’ve missed me! Still super tired all the time, slightly nauseous, everything smells oh so strong, these boobs of mine have earned their right […]

baby #1 / bump / family days / pregnancy

How far along? 30 weeks!!! Weight Gained: I’m gunna go with 23.5 lbs Symptoms: So. Very. Tired. All the time. I’m really starting to wonder if I ever had energy in my life. And if I ever could get through a day without tearing up over something. What am I becoming?!? Movement: She seems to be hanging out in the same position lately with lots of little adjustment movements (Think more stretching, less kicking :) I think she’s getting cramped […]

How far along? 29 weeks Weight Gained: 22.5 lbs Symptoms: Sciatica!!! It usually comes and goes but last weekend, it stayed and I turned into an old old OLD woman. Greg had to help me out of cars and each thing. I was a fun date. As embarrassing as that is, it kinda makes me oh so excited that I get to grow old with that guy :) :) Movement: Lots of hiccups this week. Have I mentioned […]

Okay baby site people. This girl was the size of an eggplant two weeks ago. Are we running out of food items here? Also, I told everyone I could that I was in my third trimester last week but then I read lots of people only count it at 28 weeks so now IT’S OFFICIAL. We are on the homestretch!!!! Also, I’ve been saying “on homestretch” for as long as I can remember and Greg just […]

How far along? 27 weeks Weight Gained: 19.5 lbs still…. actually if I was being honest, it’d be 19.6 Symptoms: Got my first case of the good ol leg cramps! Those woke me up : ) And are plugged ears a symptom? I’ve been getting those a lot too. Only hearing your own voice is just so much fun. Movement: She’s certainly making up for her lack of movement last week. Oh my, she must be excited about […]

baby #1 / bump / home / pregnancy / the daily life

How far along? 26 weeks Weight Gained: This is less exciting and more embarrassing these days. 19.5 lbs Symptoms: Same ol same ol. Fall down sleepy all the time again… Movement: She seems to be slowing down a bit :/ Food cravings: Chocolate chocolate chocolate. And watery fruit. I found some m&m’s in a drawer at my parents house and man, they were ripped open and devoured before I even allowed myself to entertain the thought that they were not mine […]

Yippeeee!! How far along? 25 weeks Weight Gained: Umm…. ummm I forgot to do it this morning and you know, it fluctuates mightily throughout the day…. but […]

This week is especially significant to me because I have been reading that if she was born now, she would have at least a chance at survival. I find that so crazy amazing! Ironically, it’s also the legal abortion cut off date in most states. Greg showed me this picture of a baby born at 24 weeks (who didn’t survive) but lived an hour and is clearly, miraculously formed. It’s so amazing to think that our […]

Greg and I have been having a morning debate on whether or not we’ve ever seen this supposed 10.5 or 11.5” grapefruit…. does she seem to be getting smaller in the fruit world?? I’ve also been trying to introduce her to a plethora of my favorite musicians with her new and developing hearing abilities. I do hope she grows up to love music as much as her parents do although hopefully she won’t turn out […]

Guess what! TWO strangers congratulated me this week. I’m an official pregnant lady now! How far along? 22 weeks Weight Gained: 14.5 lbs Symptoms: Tin soldier syndrome. At least that’s what I feel it should be called. I get up and get stuck in the bending over position. Or turn too quickly and have to wait for the rest of my body to unhinge and catch up. I think it’s probably related to the sciatic nerve but who […]
