30 weeks

I am starting to feel pregnant.
Let me be more specific- it's not a complaint, so much as an observation. Everyone told me the time would come. "Just wait until you're further along." as if they wanted to make sure I was being realistic and knew it wasn't all sunshine and roses.

I am moving a little more slow these days.
My feet ache a little more.
It's getting uncomfortable to sleep some nights.
My lower back has a constant dull ache.

But my gracious has she been moving a lot more lately :)

I went to the Doctor on Monday and she said I am measuring a little bigger (still) than "normal"
That prompted her to schedule one more sono! As long as she is healthy I don't care how big I get, honestly. It's worth the aches and pains. And it'll be the last time Daddy and I get to see our little baby girl until she is born :)

Here's the huge belly:

How far along? 31 weeks 4 days

Total weight gain: 18 lbs per last weigh in (3 days ago)

Maternity clothes? What a fabulous invention :)

Sleep: Getting a little more uncomfortable but still managing to snooze for 8 hours

Movement: Evaleigh loves to boogie :) and I love when she does. It's so cute to feel and even see my belly move. It's the neatest feeling in the whole world!

Food cravings: Yesterday and today it was chicken salad :) So yummy!

Gender: Sweet little baby girl!

Baby is: approximately 17" and 3.5 lbs!!

Best moment this week: Seeing her kick from the outside & knowing I'll have another chance to see her in 2 weeks!

Looking forward to: My shower on the 1st! I am so excited!

29 weeks

Technically, I'm 29 weeks and 3 days, but who is counting, right??

It's all going by too fast.
It feels like we just found out yesterday that we were pregnant and now I'm closer to the end than I am the beginning!

My point of view looking down. Where did my feet go?

How far along? 29 weeks

Total weight gain: 13 pounds as of my last Doctor's appointment.

Maternity clothes? oh they are lovely!

Sleep: is getting slightly uncomfortable. 

Movement: I think she is running out of room in there! The boops aren't as strong as they used to be. There are times when I think she is rolling & feels like she is going to burst out of my belly! It's crazy. I hope she is comfortable in there!

Food cravings: Any food at this point, really :) Like right this very second I would kick a midget in the shins for a hamburger and FF. But nothing constant.

Gender: Baby GIRL :)

Baby is: 16 inches long and approximately 3 pounds :) 

Best moment this week:  I passed my 3 hour glucose test!! WOO HOO!!

Looking forward to: My doctor's appointment on Monday to see how everything is going.

28 weeks

This is the start of my last trimester. It is so bittersweet to think in just a few more months my baby girl will be here!

It also makes me sad because I just want her to stay in my belly and be safe forever. I know that this will probably be my first and last time to experience pregnancy and I've really enjoyed it for the most part.

My emotions have gotten the best of me more often that I would like to admit but it's all part of being a hormonal pregnant lady :) I've noticed I need a little more reassurance from Husband than normal. I cry about little things. I cry about big things. I cry a lot, actually. I do feel like since being pregnant my close friends have drifted away from me more. It's such a weird feeling.


Here's a photo dump :)
A collage of our family Christmas

 Daddy got Evaleigh some Ohio State socks and bibs! So cute! Go Buckeyes!

Evaleigh's new stroller from my Stepmom and her Mom 

28 weeks and growing! Please excuse the lounge clothes! 

 I chopped all my hair off the day before Christmas!

I am currently working on my new diet for the 3 hour glucose test I have to take. What a bummer! I just knew I would be fine and come to find out my levels are just slightly higher than what they should be. I'll go in Monday morning to take that and hopefully I pass! 

I've also come to realize that I am having the hardest darn time picking out her furniture! I never knew i would be so indecisive with it! It's between a nursery set at JCPenny that includes a convertible crib, dresser, and changing table, OR the Jenny Lind 3 in 1 crib I've had my eye on at Target pieced together with a pink chair and a dresser that will double as a changing table. I'm struggling because there are things I like & dislike about both ideas! But I did get the most beautiful bedding!!
