32 Weeks!

How Far Along: 32 weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: 11 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yup! Dresses and maxi skirts are still my favorite! 
Sleep: Good, but I've been getting pretty hot at night so that's been waking me up. 
Best moment this week: My maternity picture session with my wonderful Mommy! The pictures turned out so beautiful! We also finished up Gavin's nursery, which turned out even better than I could have hoped! I'll post pictures in a separate post.
Miss anything? I really can't wait to move like a normal person again!
Movement: He's a belly ninja!
Cravings: Not really.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Symptoms: Heartburn is still pretty bad, but the Zantac helps a lot.
Labor signs: I was in the hospital last week. On Sunday night (The day before Labor Day, hah!) I started having contractions, and we headed to the hospital because they were about 5 minutes apart. They're not sure what caused it... I wasn't dehydrated or anything! They gave me a few bags of fluids and everything stopped. It was weird!
Belly Button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off? Off, though I did manage to squeeze them back on for my maternity pics!
Happy or moody most of the time? I get frustrated pretty quickly. Typical 3rd trimester, I guess. I'm getting my feelings hurt recently a little easier than I'd like. Oh well!
Looking forward to: Finishing up Gavin's cloth diapers, and my baby shower in a few weeks! :)

30 weeks pregnant!


How Far Along: 30 weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: 9 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes! I got new bras this week too.... SO comfy! It way past time!
Sleep: Good, despite getting up pretty early lately. Zoey is officially in her own bed (again) and has been sleeping all night the majority of the time! <3
Best moment this week: All of Gavin's wiggles!
Miss anything? Being able to move easily. And babywearing... I REALLY miss wearing Zoey consistently. I just get worn out so quickly now. :(
Movement: He's been moving like crazy this week! Knees and elbows and who knows what else... It tickles!
Cravings: Not really.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Symptoms: Oh my gosh, the heartburn! I've started taking Zantac, and hopefully that will calm things down a bit.
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off? Off.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy for the most part, but I also feel pretty run down. I get tired easily and my fuse is getting shorter. 
Looking forward to: Finishing up his nursery this weekend! Also, we'll be finishing up our registry at Target, and my Mom and sister have started planning my little shower. Sewing up more diapers for Gavin's stash, and getting everything ready for him to make his grand entrance!! <3


Also, Zoey is TWO! Her birthday party was a blast! We had so many wonderful friends and family come to swim and celebrate with us! <3

27 Weeks Pregnant! Hello third trimester!

How Far Along: 27 weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: 5 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Still rocking a lot of maxi skirts and dresses, and yoga pants! They're the only thing that's comfortable with him sitting so low. 
Sleep: Really good lately! I suspect that will change soon. 
Best moment this week: FINALLY got our crib delivered and put together!! I got most of the stuff hung on the walls. A few more odds and ends and it'll be finished! I also ordered a new woven wrap for our stash, bringing me up to 3 woven wraps. It's gorgeous! Also, chopped all of my hair off... I feel so much better now!
Miss anything? Bending over.
Movement: He moves all the time... I can consistently feel when he's asleep or awake. I love his little wiggles!
Cravings: Nothing too weird.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! But red sauces have started giving me some wicked heartburn...
Symptoms: Heartburn and just overall feeling big. Feet swell a bit if I'm on them for too long.... Typical home stretch!
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? Halfway out. 
Wedding rings on or off? Off.
Happy or moody most of the time? Very happy!
Looking forward to: Putting the final touches on his room... And ZOEY'S BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK! I can't believe my munchkin will be two!!

Look for a nail post this week (I got to play with some Jamberry strips!), as well as pictures from Zoey's birthday party!

25 Weeks Pregnant


How Far Along: 25 weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: Going back and forth between +2-4 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes! I got a super cute maxi dress from Target that's so comfy and cute!
Sleep: Good! Zoey is sleeping through the night again (with no 'dodie'!!!) so I'm only having to get up 1-2 times a night to go to the bathroom. 
Best moment this week: Progress on Gavin's nursery! My husband and I got his dresser and bookshelf put together, so now all we're waiting on is this nightmare of a shipping company to bring our crib (It's been TWO WEEKS since it shipped..... Thank you Home Direct USA. TERRIBLE!), and all of his furniture will be in place! I also got some of the decorations done for his walls. I can't wait to see it all put together!
Miss anything? Wine!
Movement: Definitely!
Cravings: Iced coffee... Yum!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: Can't walk or stay on my feet as long as I used to... They swell a bit and get pretty uncomfortable. Also, I can't wear Zoey for very long anymore :'(
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? Halfway out. 
Wedding rings on or off? Off, officially. :( I can still  get them on, but they're tighter than I'm comfortable with.
Happy or moody most of the time? Very happy!
Looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery!

Rocking my jersey headband from Knittles


How Far Along: 23 weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: +1
Maternity Clothes: Definitely! Still loving dresses and skirts. I also busted out my bikini this week for some belly sun! 
Sleep: Pretty good, thanks to my awesome pregnancy pillow! A must have!
Best moment this week: Celebrating 4th of July with my husband and best friend! It was a gorgeous day in the upper 80s, so we spent the day at the pool! We also went to see the fireworks, which Zoey thought was awesome!
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: Yep! He's an active little guy! His movements have gotten smaller lately, even though they're still there... I think he turned around.
Cravings: Mexican food! The crock pot chicken tacos I made this week really hit the spot.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: Heartburn, and my hands have started getting tingly. Other than that, I just feel a lot slower... I can't bend down as much, and I can't move as fast!
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In, but working it's way out. 
Wedding rings on or off? On, but not for long. 
Happy or moody most of the time? Very happy!
Looking forward to: Ordering our nursery furniture this week!!! I can't wait to finally get some progress going on Gavin's room! I'm also still working on his diaper stash... I got 2 more sewn up this week. I am excited to show off all of his cute fluff!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope!

Looking forward to: Getting some more done in the nursery. We're on hold until we can get his furniture, which will be another month or so. I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Other than all of that, I finally started on his diaper stash this week... As you guys know, I sew cloth diapers for my little online business ( Itsy Stitches ), and most of his cloth diaper stash will be made by me! He officially has his first diaper now, with many more to come! I've also made lots of flannel swaddling blankets and bibs for him. I have so much more to do!
