17 Weeks!

 This week!
How Far Along: 17 weeks 4 days!
Size of baby: Turnip!

Sleep: Just fine! I better take advantage of the zzz's I get. ha!
Symptoms: Indigestion! boo! I call it fire in the belly!
Cravings:Not much of an appetite since I have indigestion most days. Food aversions like crazy. I don't know what I want to eat ever and then go too long without eating that I feel sick. UGH!

Ha! Little k using the laundry as a stepping stool. 

In a couple weeks we find out the gender of this little turnip! We have names picked out already! We are sooo excited!!! I'm not mentioning any names just yet because we are having a Gender reveal party and that is one of the games!

Some Gender Reveal ideas from Pinterest!

Today little K had a doctors appt and then we went out to lunch together. 

We had other plans but the Mr fell asleep on the drive there! Ha! 

So much fun with my little guy! Love him sooo much! 

We both gobbled up our lunch!

38 weeks pregnant

This week!
How Far Along: 38 weeks!
Size of baby: 6.8 pounds (as per iphone app)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gain 38lbs
Maternity Clothes: Maternity tights have been my favorite!
Cravings: chocolate anything thanks ;)
Symptoms: joint pain, pressure as baby's head gets in position, back pain, fatigue, emotional, over thinking things. Feeling a little bit nervous about being a mom. Nervous about the things in life I can't control....
What I'm looking forward to? meeting my little boy for the first time.

The OB keeps saying that the baby will be early... let's just wait and see. Many
friends and family members are betting on this weekend... watch this little
one take us by surprise and arrive late ha!

I do feel my body changing,  like its preparing... but no real contractions yet
but then again I don't know what that feels like... I'm assuming
I will know when it happens because it with equal "pain" right?


I choose to get the epidural for delivery...

Now I know to be prepared for anything and everything that
can possibly happen during delivery. I've heard enough stories ha!

Mama's any delivery advice for this first time mom?

Thanksgiving weekend, OB appt and Belly pics!

 We had AMAZING weather this weekend! All weekend it felt like summer! Saturday afternoon the Nursery furniture arrived! It was so exciting and exhausting putting it all together. It's almost done, so I will blog about it soon! Sunday we had a party for my grandmothers 80th birthday! It was a thanksgiving/bday party. My grandmother was so happy with all her gifts and loved having the whole family over to share her special birthday. We all love her sooo much!

Yesterday we went to the inlaws for Thanksgiving Dinner. The weather was soo nice, and for the first time we actually had Thanksgiving dinner outside on the patio! Awesome weather! The Turkey was delicious, and we all ate soo much!

This morning I had an OB appointment. Now I will be seeing her weekly. This week I'll be 37 weeks, eek!
Doctor felt my tummy and asked if I feel a lot of pressure since the baby's head is really low and in position... I said YES! All weekend I felt a pinching feeling along with pressure and could hardly stand. She said the baby is a average size, not too small but not big either, so next week we will to an ultrasound to get more of an accurate size of the baby. I'm thinking he will be 7lbs like I was.

OB thinks little one will come earlier than his due date Nov 4. So the count down is on! Friends and Family all have their guesses in! ahah!

She also stated that fetal movement is most important these coming weeks. If I do not feel at least 6 movements in a day, I'll need to go to the hospital ASAP! She also did the bacteria swap test (GBS) today. (Hope I'm clear!)

This week we will be taking a tour of the Maternity ward at our hospital :) Fun!

36 weeks pregnant today!

 This week!

How Far Along:
36 weeks... Just 4 weeks to go!

Size of baby: iphone app says baby should be about 6lbs and that
next week it's considered full term!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 36lbs

Movement: Hiccups and lots of movement

Symptoms: Same as the last couple weeks , Joint pain, hands,knees, pelvic area. Emotional, I cry very easily, I'm more sensitive too these days.

What I'm looking forward to? This weekend, the nursery will arrive, finally!
and looking forward to finally meeting this precious little baby we made.

Yesterday I was looking for Zoe and she always comes when I call. So when she doesn't
it's usually because she is somewhere that she shouldn't be, or she escaped outside.


She was where she shouldn't be. Can't blame her, all the baby things are soft and cozy. I covered them all up with garbage bags for now. I know she will get to them eventually.

I hope Zoe adapts well to the baby.  Right now she is always around me. She follows me everywhere, when I'm relaxing she always comes to sleep on my legs or beside me. Love my little cat, I hope she loves the baby too.

We also installed the Car seat!

It was easy to install so that was good. Our Suv has latches so it was just snapping them in and making them tight, funny thing is we also put the seat belt through too, but afterwards I read the manual again and having those latches alone is fine.

It's another busy weekend ahead. Grandmas 80th bday party, and Thanksgiving.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Sleep: Sleep has been ok, although I'm much more tired during the day.

Some new items: A friend of mine bought baby K these cute outfits this week :)

34 weeks pregnant! pics and update!

This week!
How Far Along: 34 weeks!
Size of baby: 4.75-5.3lbs!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: gain 36lbs eek
Movement: lots of hiccups!
Sleep: Sleep is good, minus waking up to numb hands
Symptoms: Joint pain and feeling more tired.
Best Moment so far: My baby shower!
What I'm looking forward to? meeting my little guy!

Some new items:

I was going back and forth about getting the breast pump. I asked so many moms their opinion and decided that getting one is the right choice for me. We also got the Angel Care Video Monitor. I read great reviews on it and hope it works great for us too.

My friend over at  is in labour! She was feeling contractions yesterday then woke up at night with them closer together, 15min then 10 min then 5 min apart!
She texted me this morning and she received the epidural and is 3.5cm dilated
She is doing fine so far and says everything is going smoothly! Her due date was Sept 28
so her little guy is a little early. Gives me the feeling that my little guy will be
an October baby instead of Nov. We'll see!

I'm so excited for her!

Mama's out there with any advice about labour,  please send it over! Only 6 weeks left to go!
I wonder if I will get contractions throughout the day too, giving me time to prepare... or will my water break suddenly, hmm...I can't believe how fast time has gone by!

I set up the bassinet. It's so cute, I love it! And soon will get the husband to instal the car seat in the car.

My other baby gives it a thumb up ahaha
Zoe thinks it's awesome

We have a busy weekend. My cousin is getting married! And we have my other cousin's bridal shower Sunday. Fun, Busy weekend! (and lots of yummy food too!)

Happy first day of Fall!

Symptoms: Swelling and my joints are sore.
Best Moment so far: seeing him and hearing is heartbeat this week :)

I'm also in the crazy crazy part of nesting. I've cleaned all my closets and made soo much space around the house ahaha. I feel much better now, knowing where all the baby things will be around the house and in the closets neat and tidy... for now ahahh. 

Yesterday a friend and I (Stef over at )
went out for lunch :) Just the 2 preggos haha!

She's due in 18 days! Soo exciting!!!!!!!

Look at this super cute charm she got me for my birthday. I love it! It's a pacifier!

She was also able to get me a discount on a Kitchen Aid Mixer! I was soo excited when she told me. Makes me want to bake up a storm really really soon ahahh!

Tomorrow i'll be visiting my grandparents, haven't seen them in a while! My grandma had shingles and her doc told me to stay away for 3 weeks. So I'm happy to go see them tomorrow. And happy to eat her delicious food haha!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

31 week ultrasound

 Yesterday we went for my 31 week ultrasound! Baby looks all cozy in this belly. We saw and heard his heartbeat, saw his weewee haha and saw him kicking around in there.  We didn't get any pics tho.  Lady said she couldn't get a clear shot for a picture (whatever, the ultrasound place is super annoying) I was just happy to hear and see him, so I didn't yell haha.  She said his head is down and he was curled up so his feet are facing my right side.
Last night I couldn't sleep at all. I'm most comfortable on my back, but I think the weight is now pressing on my ribs and back muscles and it hurts! Then we had miss kitty meowing like crazy at our bedroom door, I think she heard me tossing and turning and wanted in. Now she's all cozy on the couch sleeping, must be nice to be her huh ahah!

I love summer, but this preggo is happy for the cooler weather.  I was running out of summer wear that fits! For fall I have all my sweaters that will fit fine so it will be much easier to dress this growing belly for fall. And FALL is my favorite season anyway so I'm looking forward to it! :)

Tomorrow I'll be 32 weeks! That means 8 weeks to go! 57 more days!

31 weeks pregnant photos! And my update.

This week!
How Far Along: 31 Weeks!
Size of baby: Almost 4lbs!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Yaaa I think I won't share that anymore, I really don't want to bother stepping on that scale haha!

Maternity Clothes: Still fitting this belly and bum into regular and mat clothes.  Can't wait for Fall! I have a long shopping list! As well as shoe shopping. I'm up a whole shoe size!
Movement: Baby moves a lot when I listen to Adele! He has good taste.
Sleep: This week was tough! Spine hurts! I guess belly is pretty heavy, so getting comfy is awkward.
Symptoms: Swelling :( I'm beginning to get the puffy hands and feet. boo!

Wednesday I went to drop off my pre-admission papers at the hospital! EEE! 9 weeks to go! I'm soo excited, a little nervous but wayyy more excited! I feel like time is going to go even faster now and I have soo much to still prepare for our little guy!

 Some new items I picked up this week:
Onesies and I saw this piggy bank at Winners so picked it up instead of ordering online. 

Next week I'm going for an ultrasound to see our little guy. I can't wait! 

Hope you all have a great Long Weekend!
