28 weeks

Tino was so exhausted, he slept the whole way home!

How far along?  28 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 19 lbs
Maternity clothes: oh yes.
Stretch marks: Nada, still using lotion and cocoa butter religiously.
Sleep: It's starting to get rough. Last night I got up SEVEN times to pee before I finally fell asleep at 2 am. And even with my pillow it's hard getting comfortable. I miss sleeping on my back!
Best moment this week: We went to Cannon Beach with friends! The weather was gorgeous, we brought Tino, and I got lots of color!
Miss anything? curling up on the couch or in bed. Curling up is currently a thing of the past.
Movement: She definitely has her patterns but overall seems to like her sleep which makes this mama happy! 
Food cravings: Still Spaghettios. So weird.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Our neighbors have been grilling/smoking their meat. Because we don't have air conditioning, all our windows are open and it pretty much makes me want to die.
Gender: girl
Labor signs:None!
Symptoms: Other than being bigger, none really. 
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? Off with the heat.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy for the most part, unless I'm hungry. Or have to pee. Or am sleepy.
Looking forward to: I think I deserve a pedicure, don't you? ;)

25 Weeks!

I really thought once I quit my job I'd update this so much more often but I keep finding too many things to do! I got back last week after flying home and road tripping to Kansas to see family for a couple of weeks and had not one but TWO baby showers thrown by an awesome friend and family members!

See the difference?

I've had too much fun working on the nursery and actually MAKING a couple of things! Hopefully I can share soon!

In the meantime, I stole this handy dandy survey from my friend Kelsey so here ya go...

How far along: 25 weeks
Gender: Girl
Weight gain: 17 lbs...I blame my trip back home! Back to the gym this week.
Maternity clothes: Pants are a must. Living in maxi dresses and Target's long & lean tank tops otherwise.
Stretch marks: None so far; I've been using cocoa butter since I was five weeks!
Belly button in or out: Still in but slowly working it's way out.
Sleep: I wake up at least twice to pee but haven't gotten too uncomfortable yet. Pregnancy pillows are a godsend.
Best moment this week: Temperatures are back in the 70s so I don't feel like I'm dying in my non-air conditioned house!
Miss anything: I so want a glass of wine. And to not take five minutes to get off the couch.
Movement: Finally! I didn't feel anything until about 23 weeks and Jason finally felt her around 25 weeks. This week I started seeing my stomach move which is the weirdest thing ever.
Cravings: Spaghettios which I hadn't eaten since I was 5!
Queasy or sick: Sometimes in car rides but thankfully I haven't gotten sick in about four weeks so I'm hoping that's behind me!
Looking forward to: Hopefully passing my glucose test (that's on Friday) and getting some more work on done on the nursery. Walls are completely painted and furniture is assembled, we just need to anchor the dresser to the wall. Putting up wall decor this weekend which should tie everything together! I've made my to-do list for random things before she gets here (wash all clothes and linens, make freezer meals, etc.) and worked out dates for maternity pictures and my WA shower with my amazing friend!  In the meantime I'm letting myself be OCD and clean and organize the most random things imaginable  (who knew baseboards on a 1 year old house could be so dirty?)
