I also found an antique changing table at a thrift store that a friend of mine if going to refinish in a gray wash for me.  Pics to follow.   I still have a lot to do, but this is a start!


I should also mention....Happy Easter!!!!

My husband and I went to our church last night and went to church with my family this morning and spent the day with them.  We ate a whole lot!  Baby girl especially enjoyed the Edgar's strawberry cake!  She also enjoyed all of the worship music at church.  She kicked and did barrel rolls through the whole service :)  We are very blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends to share this holiday with!  Also extremely thankful for a mighty savior who died for our sins!

 

28 Weeks


How far along: 28 Weeks....THIRD TRIMESTER WHOOOO HOOOOO
Total weight gain: 20 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Oh yeah, people can finally tell I am pregnant!!!  It is really fun having strangers notice my bump.  She is definitely in plain sight now!
Stretch marks: None yet
Sleep: Sleeping ok, but I wake up at least every 3 hours to go pee!
Best moment this week: The sun finally came out today and it warmed up to actually feel like spring!!! I went to the park with my sister and her two sweet girls and played, it was so much fun!  I can't wait until my baby girl is here to play with :)
Miss anything: Honestly, I could not be happier right now.  Moving into my third trimester is a little scary and has me thinking that I am going to miss this little angel moving around in my belly all the time.  I am so excited to meet her and finally see her sweet little face, but part of me will really miss having her inside of me.
Movement: She is getting pretty big in there and I can feel every little wiggle.  It is really cool seeing her move from the outside!  I wish I could have another ultrasound to see how she is positioned in there.
Food cravings: Fruit, sweets, anything fried haha! 
Anything making you queasy: Not at all
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Less hip pain this week, but my back is really bothering me.  I think it is hours spent on my feet personal training people.  I am still teaching 3 classes per week and that is going well.  I had to sub a lot the last couple of weeks and taught 6 each week!
Belly button in or out: In for now :)
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Super happy!
Looking forward to: Easter this Sunday!!! (Even if it is supposed to rain all weekend)  The non maternity dress I got a few weeks ago still fits so that's a plus!  I am really excited to celebrate my savior, Jesus Christ, giving his life for me on the cross and the resurrection!  I am also excited to spend the day with my family and I am making a sour cream almond pound cake with caramel frosting for dessert, YUM!!!

27 Weeks


How far along: 27 Weeks
Total weight gain: 19 pounds...lost a pound this week, don't worry, I made sure to remedy that with a Chick fil a chicken biscuit this morning :)
Maternity clothes: Yep!  Trying to find something to wear for my maternity pictures.. suggestions welcome!
Stretch Marks: No, and my doc gave me the go ahead to use self tanner (whoo hoo cause I am one pasty motha) New Jergens is supposed to hide all of my cellulite as well as give me a tan!  Does it get any better than that??
Sleep: eeehhhh not so great these days
Best moment this week: I have had a pretty great week!  Went hiking with the hubby on Saturday, the weather was b-e-a-utiful!!! Although my back hurt for three days after, it was worth it!  I had my glucose test this week and the orange juice was delicious and I don't have gestational diabetes so yay!  It was great hearing my sweet baby girl's heart beat and that everything looks good.  Probably my BEST moment this week came when my husband was scolding me for eating cookie dough by the tub and we researched and found out that store bought cookie dough is made with pasteurized eggs and safe to eat!!!!!  Now I can indulge guilt free :)
Miss anything: sleeping on my back, being able to walk up a flight of stairs without getting severely out of breath, and being able to fit into all the cute new spring styles
Movement: Like a mad woman in there!
Food cravings: Ummm...everything!  I want to eat every two hours, if I can make it that long!
Anything making you sick: Nope
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: I really do feel great!  Sore back and hips as to be expected.  I have had nosebleeds like crazy though, really annoying!
Belly button in or out: Still in, but looking more shallow every day.  Also, that weird brown line has started make its appearance down my belly.  The best part..it is crooked haha!  Definitely not a straight line....probably what I get for making fun of my sister's
Wedding rings on or off: On, although my fingers have started to swell if I eat salty foods
Happy or moody most of the time: So happy I could sing ;)
Looking forward to: I finally made some decisions about the nursery and I will be ordering stuff next week!  It feels good to have made a decision.  Also, I scored a really cool antique thing (not sure its exact purpose) I will be using it as a changing table though and I LOVE it!  One of my best buds is going to refinish it for me restoration hardware style :)  I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Best moment this week: Is it sad that I am having a hard time remembering what I did this morning, much less in the last week??  This pregnancy brain is really starting to get to me!  Oh, I did finally decide on nursery theme!!!  Previews to come soon
Miss Anything: Being able to sleep on my back...hips are killing me from sleeping on my side!

Announcement



To the tune of "Call me maybe"  .... You are welcome for getting that annoying song stuck in your head for the rest of the day ;)

I know this is way out of order, but I forgot to post it.  I need babygirl to see how silly her mommy is so she knows what she has to live up to ;)

P.S.  I am pretty sure I will never fit in those pants again haha!
