32 Weeks!

 How far along? 32 weeks

Maternity  clothes? Yes, and it’s gotten to the point where some of my early maternity clothes are too tight now…time to buy even bigger stuff.
Stretch marks? Nothing new, slathering on the cocoa butter b/c I know my stomach has a lot more to grow.
Sleep: Ok, just hard to get comfy because of my back sometimes.
Best moment these last 2 weeks: BABY SHOWER!! Had my first one yesterday and it was so much fun! I’m so blessed with an amazing church family who got Maddie so many cute things! I’m starting to feel a little more prepared!
Miss Anything? Cracking my back! Haha…it’s so sore all the time but all I can do is stretch a little and put a heating pad on it.
Movement: Still like crazy, I can definitely tell she’s getting bigger in there! She’s the most active at night.
Food Cravings: No, but I did put peanut butter on my chocolate chip cookies last week. I’ve been eating more sweets compared to the beginning of my pregnancy.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby Girl Madilyn
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Sore back and feet, and swollen fingers sometimes. The bottoms of my ribs are sore too, she’s taking up a lot more space in there.
Belly Button in or out? Evened out, sometimes it pops out a little!
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy…especially now that I have more baby supplies and I can start organizing her nursery. 
Looking forward to: Miles and I are going on a baby-moon next weekend and going camping (in a pop-up camper). It’ll be nice to get away one last time with just the two of us (and Diesel). Also, I have another baby shower coming up so more goodies for baby girl!

 The beautiful and tasty cupcakes Jennie and her mom made!
All the presents before I started organizing and putting everything away!

30 Weeks!!

How far along? 30 weeks

Maternity clothes? Yep, and my mom bought me a pair of maternity jeans, so I finally have pants! Woohoo! I hope I have enough sweaters that will stretch over my belly with the fall coolness coming!

Stretch marks? None on my belly! (sadly a few on my behind…boo!)

Sleep: Some nights great, some nights not so great. My back hurts a lot so trying to find a comfy position takes a while sometimes.

Best moment these last 2 weeks: We started our parenting classes (4 classes in sept). They’ve been pretty informative and I’m learning about how much labor is going to hurt!! (yay for epidurals!) I also started going to the OB every two weeks so that means it’s getting closer!!

Miss Anything? My normal fall clothes…I have so many jeans and sweaters and none of them fit. And this is the first year where I’ve been super excited about fall weather! Oh well, I can still fit in my cute winter boots!

Movement: Still going like crazy. She is gonna be one active baby! I’ll put a book on my stomach and she’ll make it bob up and down, its so funny. She also gets hiccups a lot which is so cute!

Food Cravings: I’m just trying to learn what makes me have heart burn, which seems like everything! The only thing that helps is warm milk, which I add either chocolate or strawberry syrup to and it’s so tasty!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: My heartburn, ugh!!

Gender: Little Missy

Labor Signs: No; I think I may have felt a braxton-hicks contraction though…whatever it was it hurt!

Symptoms: Heartburn

Belly Button in or out? Even; sometimes out a little

Wedding rings on or off? Off. Can’t wait to wear it again!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!! Every once in a while I start to feel a little overwhelmed because we’re getting closer to the big day…but I still can’t believe God has blessed us with a little baby girl and I cannot wait to meet her!! She is going to be so loved!

Looking forward to: My upcoming baby showers! I have 2 within the next month! I can’t wait to get all the baby supplies and start getting the nursery filled up!

28 Weeks!

How far along? 28 weeks

Maternity clothes? Yep!

Stretch marks? Nope!

Sleep: Just a lot of tossing and turning but it’s been pretty good lately.

Best moment these last 2 weeks: Feeling so much movement from Missy! She definitely doesn’t sleep a lot!. Also, finding out my friend Jennie is having a baby GIRL (due 6 weeks after me) so our girlies will be best friends!

Miss Anything? Getting so tired out and sore just from walking. I need to be more active though!

Movement: All the time. She has figured out how much room she has and likes to stretch out! There’s been a few times where she almost takes my breath away from her sudden kicks and jabs! Haha.

Food Cravings: Nothing crazy yet.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!

Gender: Baby Girl Madilyn

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: Sore back and feet. Swollen fingers and I think my face is getting a little chubby.

Belly Button in or out? Evened out, sometimes it pops out a little!

Wedding rings on or off? Sadly off.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! I just love sitting and watching my belly dance and I love going in the nursery and looking through all her cute clothes!

Looking forward to: Another doctor appt this week (but I have to do the glucose test so I have to drink the orange syrup nastiness!! Ugh) I just like hearing that everything is going well though!
