BUMPDATE // BABY #2 // 32 - 33 Weeks


HOW FAR ALONG// Officially 33 Weeks

BABY SIZE// About the size of a pineapple
MY SYMPTOMS//
My days and weeks have been running together. I am trying to keep up with these posts and I said I wasn't going to get behind but Y'all see that I am. I even have drafts saved that consist of Christmas, baby dedication and our Gym Dawgs meet and haven't finished those either. Boo.
I have some pretty intense insomnia going on these days and I have NO clue how I've been able to function AT. ALL. I slept for the first night in 6 days on Sunday night and it was wonderful. I forgot what sleep actually felt like. 
FSH head is down and I can feel her on my bladder. There is SO much pressure! And some positions she gets into makes me curl up in a ball and sometimes I cannot even stand up straight. Too embarrass myself, I have totally been peeing on myself at times and that means lots of clothes changing and laundry. I don't even mean to! Little girl just moves the right way and there it happens!!
My lower back is in shambles and at times its so hard for me to get going in the mornings. About 1130 or 12 my body seems to wake up and I'm much better. Sometimes it takes even longer than that, especially not sleeping at night.

I had a DR appt on Thursday March 16th. All was great! I did feel like I was getting a bladder infection or something and sure enough it was. The Dr gave me meds for it and I feel much better in that department. My BP was great, I did ask what it was but I don't remember. FSH put on a show for Dr Elder moving around so much and he just went on about how he could see her having a fun in my belly! If I remember correctly, her heartbeat was in the 130's. I need to start writing this down! I didn't ask what my weight was... I seriously step on the scale backwards and tell them I don't want to know numbers. I guess I haven't made anymore big jumps because they haven't said anything in quite some time and just say, "bp is good, weight its good, any questions?"
I did ask Dr Elder this time why my date was moved over a week out and he said because my first ultrasound showed a more accurate reading than when my last period was. He says everytime that I'm right on track. I do have our last ultrasound on Monday and he said we would know the weight of the baby and go from there.

My left breast has been really bothering me and I want it to be checked at my next visit. It almost feels like a stabbing burning pain only in once place and its just really starting to concern me.

I feel like I have a ton of pressure on my tailbone, too. Man I sound like I'm complaining and I'm trying not to and embrace it.. I think I may just be too old to carry babies! ha!

MATERNITY CLOTHES//

Yes. I never got anymore 'cute' maternity clothes so I am contstanlty on repeat. My compression tights are a life saver but I am so irritated because these ripped just like my other ones did this week. So now I have a new pair with a huge whole in the thigh area. I've been thinking about calling the company and letting them know this is my second pair that's done this! I have been wearing Shane's pajama pants but one pair that I was wearing has gotten tight around the belly. Yikes.


SLEEP//

So little!! 

MOVEMENT//

OH yes! All the time! I try to catch her on video but still every time I put the camera on her, she stops. The same thing with Finley!

CRAVINGS//

I saw Cinnamon Toast Crunch in Ingles this week and thought I was going to buy the whole section of cereal. LOL. I opted for Kashi cinnamon Harvest or something like that. It's been SOOOO good!!
I fed Finley green beans the other day and took a bite myself and ended up eating a whole can by myself.. anything healthy besides fruit has been disgusting to me but I guess I forgot how great they were!

GENDER// girl!

WHAT I MISS//

Sleep, sleep, and more sleep. Being comfortable and wearing normal clothes.

WORKOUTS//

I've done T25 a couple times with hand weights for my arms. I was very uncomfortable again the last time I did it and I truly think I'm just going to have to start walking at this point. I still want to do hand weights too. 

EMOTIONS//

I did start crying the other when Shane was hugging on me one night. I feel like we haven't done that in so long and we have lost our togetherness because we are just getting wrapped up in work, Finley, and just going thru the motions. It felt absolutley wonderful to have that moment with him .. I guess I'd forgotten what that felt like and it was nice to have it back for a little bit.
Thoughts of delivery are already coming into my mind and I really don't want to do that part. but I know its the inevitable. I'm praying that it's another smooth delivery, I don't tear this time and it's a quick recovery faster than when I had Finley. 

DREAMS//

I don't think I've slept enough to dream!

HUBBY'S THOUGHTS//

Baseball.

3 AMIGAS THOUGHTS//

They are probably starving for attention and they are driving me nuts! Mara has now found something dead and keeps rolling in it and Kyli won't stop barking at everything. Can't even take it.

BEST PREGNANCY MOMENT THIS WEEK//

Hearing FSH heartbeat. 
Getting my new glasses! FINALLY! I know they are big and I'll probably get laughs from some people but I'm loving them!!

BUMPDATE // BABY #2 // 30 - 31 Weeks


HOW FAR ALONG// 31 Weeks




BABY SIZE// About the size of a Coconut

MY SYMPTOMS//

I feel like I am definitley slowing down. I worked A LOT this week and I can feel it. Right now I feel like I did before I delivered Finley and I still have quite a few weeks to go. I hope I make it.
My lower back is screaming at me and my abs around my belly button feel like they have completely shredded apart. I cannot wait to have my body back and I pray that I can get back to where I was. I was feeling fantastic when I found out I was pregnant.
I'm not sure if I'm seeing old stretch marks and their color more because my skin is stretched out or if these are new ones. I think I have a small batch of new ones more towards the front and I cried like a baby when I saw them. I've been lathering up with Frankinsence and Geranium and I've ordered more Frankensince and Lavendar and just going to continue to grease up my belly.
The past few days I've felt like I was getting a bladder infection or something along those lines, but I've started drinking Cran Grape juice and I feel so much better! I don't know if that is a myth but the feeling I was having like I was getting a UTI has left the building.

My nose is still pretty messed up and I'm having a hard time breathing at night.

We had an ultrasound on February 27th and ALL was PERFECT! This baby girl's pictures look just like Finley's! I can't believe how similar they were to each others. The only difference is they were facing opposite directions. The ultra sound tech said she had never seen a baby cooperate as much as this one did. I was so thankful that she did! She said that she weighed about 4lb and 2oz but we would know for sure about 34 weeks. 

I also had a checkup that day and Everything else was good... they didn't say anything about my weight and said my BP was good and from here on out I go every 2 weeks. Can. Not. Believe it.

MATERNITY CLOTHES//

Yes! I think I rotate the same 4 outfits.

SLEEP// 

I have some wonderful nights and I'm peeing more too but always seem to fall back asleep. I've been napping quite a good bit whenever I can. There are so many times when I just cannot keep going.

MOVEMENT//

Lots and lots of movement! I'm bruised on my right side where a knee or elbow or something always finds this one exact spot every time.

CRAVINGS//

Tacos. And this week I was at the grocery store and spotted some Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Bought me some Kashi instead. It was absolutely delicious!

GENDER// 

GIRL!

WHAT I MISS//

Extreme workouts and sleeping on my back.

WORKOUTS//

I've done T25 a couple times and weights on my arms. This last time I did T25, I tried doing a certain move I've been doing and it was VERY uncomfortable. I'm wondering if I should just try and start walking and do weights.

EMOTIONS// 

I've cried several times this week and even felt depressed.

DREAMS//

I know I've had some but nothing has stuck with me.

HUBBY'S THOUGHTS//

He's into baseball!

3 AMIGAS THOUGHTS//

They've been good the past couple weeks and Kyli has been such a snuggler!

BEST PREGNANCY MOMENT THIS WEEK//

Seeing Baby #2 face!!



Finley was dedicated on March 5th...



AND, I also FINALLY made it to my 1st Gym Dawgs meet with this little one in tow! We had such a great time! Although I'm pretty sure we missed half of it because we got started down the road late and traffic. We met Whitney and Brynn and even tho we were late we still had a great time!

BUMPDATE // BABY #2 // 27 - 29 Weeks


HOW FAR ALONG // Officially 29 weeks




BABY SIZE // Size of a squash

MY SYMPTOMS//

There have been several nights over the past few weeks where I've had some rough nights of hardly no sleep. Thankfully Shane has been able to get up with Finley in the mornings and I've been able to sleep hard for a couple of hours. My nose has been one main issue of getting no sleep... just extremely hard to breathe even with using my oils. I came home one night after work last week and our neighbor was burning leaves and I got messed up all over again! It's crazy how sensitive your body is during pregnancy! 

My eyes are still messed up feeling extremely dry and I go back to the eye dr in 2 weeks. They had ordered me a pair of glasses to see if I liked them )because they can't fix my broken ones) and I really didn't like them. I felt like I was settling to begin with because they were the cheaper frames I could find... someone new helped me Friday and I found a pair I love! AND, they are almost $100 cheaper! They are actually sunglasses and the guy popped the lenses out and said here try these. Confession. The frames are super big and I'm probably going to get some stares but I really don't care. IF I do end up getting Lasik, I'll have the lenses to make into a pair of sunglasses. Score.

On February 6th, I had a regular checkup and all was good to my knowledge. For the past few appts, I've been stepping on the scale backwards and just ask am I OK and they say yes. I do not want to know numbers right now and I haven't even stepped on the scale at home since August. BP was good (I know I wrote it down somewhere but I have no clue where that would be at this point). I saw the nurse practitioner this time and she wanted me to do the glucose test that week... I did not do it.. for several reasons. I'm opting for them to prick my finger to check sugar levels when I go in.. which they do anyways already.

On February 13th, I went to the hospital to get my rhogam shot. Once again I knew I was going to walk in all brave and I KNOW I must have had a look on my face because the nurse said "honey are you OK?" and I lost it. In front of her, Shane and Finley. She was so sweet but I've seen nurses on facebook make fun of people like me. That's Ok... I know where my fear of needles comes from and its from being hospitalized when I was in the 2nd grade and things going wrong from the moment I got there with getting an IV and then to my hand swelling and having to start all over again.
And the shot didn't even bother me. It was JUST getting my blood drawn.

I woke up two nights ago with my lower let cramping. It was so bad I had to pull my foot back into place. I'm getting up to pee again constantly.

MATERNITY CLOTHES //

Yes! And Shane's pajama pants and tshirts when I'm home.

SLEEP//

Off and on.

MOVEMENT//

Yes! I love it! Except when I get kicked WAY down south. Oh my goodness. This little one is loving my left side again just like Finley. But I can feel so much more now or either she's a little more rambunctious than Finley was!

CRAVINGS//

Tacos, Dr Pepper (whhhaaaaa???), raspberries, and smoothies. Veggie sandwiches from Subway (sometimes I'll eat half the bread or no bread and just get spinach, tom, cucumber, pickles, olives, and lots of jalapenos), there is also a place called Chill Out yogurt on the way to work and they have an AMAZING veggie sandwich. They have the freshest food!!
I despise cooking right now and sadly I can't tell you how much money I've thrown away in food because I haven't been cooking that much. It's ridiculous. 

GENDER//

Another girl!! AND, we have decided on a name. Shane finally just told me to choose and so I did. I'm completely at peace with the decision and just love it so much!

WHAT I MISS//

Amazing sleep. Being able to move quicker.

WORKOUTS//

I missed quite a few days there for awhile but I've been keeping up with Shaun T again! Even been doing heavier lifting with my arms and quite a few squats. There was one morning last week or this week where I only got about 2 hours sleep.. that afternoon when Finley napped I popped in a video and it was amazing at the energy I had after that! So that's been my motivation .. to push myself to do it even when I don't feel like it in hopes that it will make me feel better.

EMOTIONS// 

I've had some pretty upset moments for sure. I truly am trying to be better and literally calling on the name Jesus.

DREAMS//

Wow two nights ago was a doozy! I want to study it out to see what it may mean but I don't care to share it here.

HUBBY'S THOUGHTS//

I'm sure he's tired of hearing me ask "have you heard from ____ about the porch??" We are converting our backporch into a sunroom/new living room and making the living room we are in now back to a bedroom AKA nursery. I have ABOUT 10 weeks left and we've had people quote us outrageously and then people who have quoted us decent but won't call us back to confirm and get things going!! It's about to send me over the edge. I just want everything to be in order bringing a new born home. I've already told Shane I will NOT be living here if there is construction going on AFTER we get home from the hospital. I did that with Finley and I WILL NOT be doing it again. We will all 3 be taking a staycation somewhere else.

3 AMIGAS THOUGHTS//

Sox has been constantly rolling in horse poo.. Kyli can't stop barking at nothing. Mara is as sweet as ever... her breathe just smells like fish. Peeyoooh.

BEST PREGNANCY MOMENT THIS WEEK//

Since my last post, God is still continuing to bless my Monat business! There have been some lows but I am still pushing and I'm almost at a DOUBLE promotion this month! Eeeeek! I can't believe how close I am! Shane came home today(Saturday), and I got busy making calls and following up with people. 

I've been trying to spend as much time with Finley as I can. Some days it's SO HARD.. especially when I'm not feeling up to doing anything. She wants to be carried a LOT and that's hard too. I just keep telling myself that there is going to be an end to that and enjoy it while I can. She was ALL about giving kisses and hugs today. Oh my goodness I didn't even have to ask for them!! She would just wrap her arms around me and plant kisses on me out of no where! Shane even told me to call a babysitter today if I wanted time for myself but look at what I would've been missing had I done that.

We had our maternity pictures taken last Friday too.


 I can't wait to get the rest and I'm SO EXCITED that Shane and Finley are in these too. Shane was out of town with Finley's and our photographer even got some of Finley by herself and with Shane that I can't wait to see. We haven't had her picture taken since the announcement in August/Sept? I know that doesn't seem like that long but she has changed SO much since then.

I've really been cleaning out the house again too. Our dining room is filled with boxes full of stuff I've cleaned out to have a yard sale. So ready for it! I just have a couple more places to go thru and I should be done. If I could get up in the attic and go thru and organize that, I would. It's too dangerous tho. 

I've started reading the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding and praying my milk comes in again (I could pray some more about this) and that this time I'll be successful at it. I would really love for this to happen.
