Baby Boy!

Will has completely stolen our hearts (and time!), so forgive this post that is all pictures of my new #mcm. 

All smiles on our road trip over Christmas!

Hello, 40 Weeks!

We made it!  WOOHOO!   It’s the last week of pregnancy and we can’t wait to meet our little guy any day now.

How far along:  40 weeks

Baby’s size:  watermelon or pumpkin

Maternity Clothes:  I can still fit in to some of my pre-pregnancy shirts, but I am loving my maxi dresses and skirts these days.

Sleep:  Great sleep!   Nothing to complain about.  Just up once or twice during the night.
Best moment of this week:   Enjoying those last days of snuggling with my hubby and it just being us.  (Oh, and we’ve been spoiling our dog like rotten!)
 
Miss anything:   Lots of things!  Being able to bend over and pick things up off the floor, tieing my shoes, a glass of wine, sushi!
 
Movement:   He is constantly wiggling and kicking after meals and while I’m walking the dog.  He even responds to my voice and touch now!

Food cravings:   Nothing really, I’m always hungry!
How I’m feeling:   Wonderful! I feel fantastic these days.  Lots of energy, no pain, just ready to have this baby
Gender:   It’s a BOY!  A wiggly, active little boy who LOVES ice cream.
Belly button in or out:   hmmmm, it’s a half-n-half situation right now.

Wedding rings on or off:  They are still on!
Happy or moody most of the time:   Pretty happy these days.
Looking forward to: Meeting our little guy!

Baby Update: 20 weeks, half way there!

How far along:  20 weeks

Baby’s size:  Banana – though I think he’s more like a large mango size.
 
Maternity Clothes:  I just started wearing some comfy maternity shorts this week.   Though they are a little big, they feel great around my growing little belly!

Sleep:  Great sleep!   Nothing to complain about.

Best moment of this week:   Watching baby on the monitor at the doctor’s office this week.   He would push back when the nurse was doing the ultrasound.  

Miss anything:   HOT DOGS!   I really want a good hot dog…..

Movement:   He is constantly wiggling and kicking after meals and while I’m walking the dog.

Food cravings:   Nothing yet.  I’m back to eating all my favorite foods, though!  I’m happy to like salads and veggies again.

How I’m feeling:   Wonderful! I feel fantastic these days.

Gender:   It’s a BOY!  A wiggly, active little boy who LOVES ice cream.

Belly button in or out:   Still in

Wedding rings on or off:  On, but I take them off to work out now.

Happy or moody most of the time:   Happy and easy going.

Looking forward to:  Painting the nursery this week!

Week 15 Update

How far along:  15 weeks 5 days
Baby’s size:  Apple
**No belly picture to post, there’s really not much popping out yet.   Maybe by the next update I will have a little baby bump.
 
Maternity Clothes:  Not yet, though my jeans are getting snug.  I’m able to just wear flowing tops and dresses at this moment.
Sleep:  Great sleep!   Well…..there’s that once a night trip to the bathroom, but besides that I am doing great.
Best moment of this week:   Getting to announce our pregnancy to everyone! 
Miss anything:   A glass of wine.
Movement:   Nothing yet….

Food cravings:   No cravings, really.   Food aversions – YES!   It was really bad during the fist trimester, but it’s getting better each day of the 2nd.
How I’m feeling:   Great at the moment.  Energy levels are up, my brain has been able to focus, and I feel like I’m not pregnant most of the time.
Gender:   It’s a BOY!
Belly button in or out:   In.   I’m not looking forward to that time when it pops out.  It sort of grosses me out.

Wedding rings on or off:  On, though I don’t like to sleep with them on right now.
Happy or moody most of the time:   Happy, but I’ve noticed I get frustrated very easily.
Looking forward to:  We have an ultrasound this week and see baby boy.  Can’t wait!
