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!

21 weeks pregnant



How Far Along: 21 weeks.... Gavin weighs as much as a pomegranate!
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: 0... Officially back at my pre-pregnancy weight.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely. All of my regular clothes are OUT. 
Sleep: Good. 
Best moment this week: Lots more movement, finishing up the painting... It's coming along!
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: A ton! He's moving around so much and I can see it from the outside all the time. I love watching him wiggle!
Cravings: Reeses Oreos. Haven't tried them? Holy mother, they're delicious!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: Heartburn big time! I also get crampy when I walk too much, and I've had to slow down a lot. I've really started to "feel it" this week. Also, my feet are officially out of view!
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Very happy!
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!

20 weeks.... Halfway there!




How Far Along: 20 weeks.... Gavin is as long as a banana!
Gender: It's a BOY!
Weight Gain: -2 lb. Please don't hate me. I gained 20 lbs inn the 18 months that I nursed Zoey, so I guess this is my body finally "losing" it!
Maternity Clothes: Loving my maternity shorts and Old Navy maternity tanks!
Sleep: Good. 
Best moment this week: Finishing Gavin's quilt for his room... It turned out great! I also found an awesome tree at Goodwill for $13. It will go great with his jungle theme! I plan to hang some animals from it :)
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: He's getting more and more active! I can see him moving around from the outside now, and that's pretty cool.
Cravings: Hummus and crackers.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: Heartburn has kicked in and I was pretty uncomfortable from it the other night! My linea negra (the dark line that some women get down the middle of their belly) has started showing up again as well.
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Very happy!
Looking forward to: Painting! We're going to go pick out paint this weekend! When I was pregnant with Zoey, I redecorated the upstairs bathroom and (obviously) her bedroom... This time around, I'll be working on Gavin's bedroom and the playroom!

It's a.....

Yesterday, we went to the doctor for our anatomy scan. We took 2 outfits with us, along with a gift bag... We asked the US tech to wrap the right outfit up in the gift bag, so we could go home and open it while my mom took pictures! Talk about going crazy... It takes some serious self control to not rip into that bag as soon as it is in your hands! But, I resisted. We went to my Mom's house to pick up Zoey, and we all sat down to open our gift....

I posted this on Facebook at the doctor's office... Just to drive everyone nuts!







.......












IT'S A BOY!




I am still shocked! I was totally expecting another girl... I was convinced! That being said though, I am totally thrilled... It's going to be fun to explore a whole other side of parenting! New cloth diapers, all new clothes, trucks, dirt, bugs... And the best cuddles that I'll ever get! (Besides Zoey's! He has some work to do.... She gives pretty awesome cuddles!)



So, everyone say hi to Gavin Alexander!



We are so excited, and I just know Zoey is going to love having a little brother!
