How far along? 29 Weeks, 4 Days

Due date: September 8, 2013

Total weight gain/loss: About 20 pounds gained

Maternity clothes? Dresses, Maxi Skirts – and my all time fave Maternity Jeans from H&M

Sleep: Sleep hasn't been so great. I usually get up around 2-3am to use the bathroom, then I stay up for about 20 min. or sometimes up to an hour. Its hard for me to fall right back asleep!

Food cravings: Nothing that lasts too long. I'm always up for some frozen yogurt or ice cream though!

Symptoms: Heartburn! Lower back pain, rib pain, swollen feet by the end of the day.

Labor Signs: Nothing yet, except for the occasional Braxton Hicks.

Belly Button in or out? Out

Stretch Marks? None (hope this sticks!)

Wedding rings on or off? Off :(

Feeling toward Pregnancy: Over all its been good. I just get tired very easily.

What I miss: A nice glass of wine and a cold beer :)

What I am looking forward to: Maternity Leave! I'm officially off work on August 12th. I'm excited to be on leave during my favorite holidays, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. But most of all, I'm looking forward to meeting our little guy and seeing Tristan and him together.

Milestones: All the movement. I love feeling the little kicks, punches, twirls!
 
 
Hi folks,
I'm having a bit of a baby blanket dilemma. I can't decide which blanket to get! The good thing about these are that their not only supersoft, they also aren't too heavy and can also be used for swaddling. I really want this to be special for baby. Can you help me decide?


 

WELCOME

Welcome to my new blog! Sorry, I've been MIA for the past couple of months. A lot has happened since my very last post in February. If you haven't heard already, we're expecting bambino #2. As of yesterday, I am 29 weeks – can you believe it? This pregnancy sure has flown by so quickly. For the most part, I'm feeling pretty good, but I'm definitely starting to slow down though. I've lost that burst of energy I had during my 2nd trimester that's for sure. I get tired very easily and all I want to do is sleep. It's been a challenge some days, being pregnant with a toddler and all. As we all know, 2 year olds can be very demanding and just want your attention; when all I really want to do sometimes is vege out on the couch in front of the TV. Tristan has been pretty sweet with baby though. He laughs every time I flash my growing belly at him and he likes to help rub my belly :)
