So Thankful!


 
We had a very relaxed and great Thanksgiving. We went over the my parents house and ate too much food as always. My mom made a delicious meal that left me in a Thanksgiving food coma. ha! My grandma and great-grandma made the trip in and my cousin and Aunt come over too. It was a great day to just be thankful, and I am soooo thankful for what I have. I hope you have a great holiday too!

Bumpdate- 32 weeks!



How Far Along: 32 weeks, 8 weeks to go! Kind of scary!

Total Weight Gain: around 30 lbs. YIKES! haha! I have my 32 week appointment tomorrow, weighing in after Thanksgiving should be interesting! haha!

Size of Baby: Baby girl is the size of a large JICAMA, according to babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes:
I've switched to all maternity clothes, they are just more comfortable at this point. I got a new outfit for the holidays, can't wait to wear it!
Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement:
I feel her move around all the time. The movement has become way more pronounced in the past couple of weeks. It almost tickles sometimes. I can really tell that she is getting bigger!

Sleep:
I haven't been sleeping as well as I normally do. Mainly because I don't like sleeping on my side. I wake up a lot during the night, I think mostly because I'm just not comfortable.

What I miss:
Nothing really right now. I think I am actually going to miss being pregnant sometimes. ha!
Cravings:
Fruit still sounds good.I have really been wanting BLT's and baked potatoes!

Other crazy symptoms:
Just feeling kind of achy and stiff. Really when I am sitting too long, it hurts to get up. I feel like I'm 80! My feet usually start hurting withing 2.5 seconds of standing up, so that has been fun. ha! We did a lot over Thanksgiving and I could really feel it by last night. I was hurting all over!

Best Moment this week:
My two childhood best friends and their moms threw me the most amazing baby shower in Houston for all of my family down there! It was fabulous and I will remember it for the rest of my life! I couldn't ask for better friends! And also Thanksgiving was great, my grandma and great grandma came in from Houston and spent a few days with us, it's always good to spend time with them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bumpdate-30 weeks!


 
I'm actually 31 weeks today, so I'm late posting. I will catch up next week ;)

How Far Along: 30 weeks

Total Weight Gain: around 30 lbs. YIKES! haha!

Size of Baby: CUCUMBER, according to babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes:
I am still wearing some regular (mostly maternity) tops but I have switched to all maternity bottoms, they are so comfortable! Still LOVING my maternity yoga pants. I have not made any purchases, but I'm seriously considering buying one more pair of those pants. I just wear them sooooo much!
 
Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement:
I feel her move around all the time. The movement has become way more pronounced in the past couple of weeks. It almost tickles sometimes. I can really tell that she is getting bigger!

Sleep:
I haven't been sleeping as well as I normally do. Mainly because I don't like sleeping on my side. I wake up a lot during the night, I think mostly because I'm just not comfortable.

What I miss:
Nothing really right now. I think I am actually going to miss being pregnant sometimes. ha!  
Cravings:
Fruit always sounds good. I am still eating sweets, but not having those "have to have it right now" kind of carvings for them. PB&Js are still sounding good at anytime of the day. And I have really been craving milk, which I usually only eat on cereal, but a big glass of ice cold milk sounds so good!

Other crazy symptoms:
Just feeling kind of achy and stiff. Really when I am sitting too long, it hurts to get up. I feel like I'm 80! My feet usually start hurting withing 2.5 seconds of standing up, so that has been fun. ha!

Best Moment this week:
I went to a breastfeeding class last night. I gave Hunter a pass not to attend that one, so I dragged my mom with me instead. ha! There are actually a few other husbands missing and friends/moms came in their places. It was not as good as the other classes, but still informative. The whole idea of nursing is so intimidating to me. It really kind of scares me. I'm trying to go into it with a completely open mind, and whatever happens, happens. ha!

Thanks for stopping by!

stick a fork in me...I'm done

I had my last weekend event for the year and for the last time until after I go back to work after the baby is born. Woo Hoo! I had an all day event last Saturday and and all day event this past Saturday and it Wore. Me. Out.And on top of that, we went out to dinner for a friend's birthday on Saturday night. I was sooooo tired on Sunday. And I still had to catch up on my normal weekend stuff that I couldn't do on Saturday. Good thing it was cold and rainy, it was a perfect day to stay inside.

And today has been such a typical Monday. I am dragging and I started that day by spray hairspray in my wet hair by accident instead of my volume root boost. Oh well, Monday has just about came and gone. ha!

Anyways...enough of me griping. ha! I have a super busy week at work and then I have my second baby shower this weekend. I am so excited to see friends and family that I haven't seen in a while. It will be so much fun! I can't wait!

Love,
Jess
