39 Weeks

Hello, Hello, Hello!
I'm still here and i still got a baby in my belly!
but there has to be and end in sight right?
Well these photos might look similar to last week because seriously i don't think i can get much bigger than this!

How far along? 39 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I'm guessing about 30lbs....? 
Maternity clothes? Yes, its all that fits right now.
Stretch marks? A couple small ones.
Sleep:  Not to bad (knock on wood) we've had warmer weather so sometimes i wake up really hot!(nothing a fan and an open window can't fix) Our blackout curtains are not that great either or maybe its the fact that it starts to get light at 530 in the morning!! Overall just a lot of restless sleep i have to pee every couple hours and don't get me started on trying to get my half awake body out of bed! 
Best moment this week:  We had Hailey's puppy party and it was huge success (except for my camera running out of room to take pictures!) It made me happy to see her having so much fun! We also drove down to the Seattle Temple to walk around and for me that's also really fun! Even if you don't go in for me there's a sense of peace just being close to the temple. Makes me happy that Hailey loves to go just as much as i do :)
Miss anything? I think what i miss the most is just having my regular/non pregnant body. I'm just ready to be done - but is miss Aubrey ready to be done? I have a feeling she's not coming early, i bet she will be a late baby just like her sister. But honestly you never know the second time around.
Movement: She's a movin' she's a skipping, she's a dancin, she's a boxing - so yes not sure what going on in there but there is movement!
Food cravings: Muffins,donuts,fresh bread, pastries of  any kind - brrrrriiiinnnnggg theeemmmm to meeeee! lol
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks + a couple of  real contractions- no biggie

Symptoms: Just contractions ....
Belly Button in or out? out ...but only for a couple more weeks!
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly off :( 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time (in my humble opinion)
Looking forward to:My sister is coming into town in a week with her kids to help out so it will be nice to have a family member around when the big day comes!
But most of all I'm looking forward to having this baby! 
I can't tell you how many times i have people ask me when I'm due! lol but on top of that i do appreciate the many compliments i get,last week a lady stopped me while i was walking back to my car in the walmart parking lot just to tell me i was a very cute pregnant lady,  i won't lie - compliments are so appreciated when your 39 weeks pregnant and just feel so big! It's also funny to talk to people at church who are just noticing that I'm pregnant or never even knew! (for reals I'm not that small!)  ahhh lol those funny conversations, but I'll take that as a compliment...k ?

38 Weeks Plus Some.....

Here i am again!
38 weeks large.
haha!
Can't believe i only got a couple weeks left!
(Due date is June 16th) 
but we all know babies never come on there exact due dates!
I also can't believe that school is almost over!
Hailey's last day is June 16th same day as my due date!
Then summer vacation will begin!
Hopefully with a new baby sister close after that or even before.
who knows.....
This last week has also been a long full week of complete random strangers constantly asking me whenever im out and where ever i am ...
 'when are you due?' and
 'what are you having?' 
I feel like ive repeated myself a million times! I think i need a to put a sticker on my belly with the answers to those 2 questions.....lol
I must really look like im about to pop!
(I don remember the same thing happening when i was pregnant with Hailey too.)

How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: As far as i know 27lbs? maybe....? I always seem to write these updates the day before my doctor's appointments.
Maternity clothes? Yes and yes.
Stretch marks? A couple small ones.

Sleep:  Well as of lately its 2 nights tossing and turning 1 night of good sleep - over and over and over again. Sometimes i just wake up in the middle of the night and am completely wide awake, it's pretty annoying!

Best moment this week:  Technically it was over the weekend, my neighbor threw me a baby shower (pictures below) my neighbor is not only Awesome, she is a great party planner! So it was really fun and there was so much good food and some pretty cool games!
Miss anything? Right now i think i miss a good nights sleep the most and being able to work in the yard, and sitting on the ground (without worrying how I'm going to get up easily lol) but soon i won't have to miss those things, except the sleep thing :P All in all i think im at the point where i just feel done being pregnant, good thing i only got a couple weeks left!
Movement: So much - on Sunday while i was sitting in church i don't know what she was doing in there but i was literally watching my stomach move around for the first hour of church (kinda neat/interesting) she was moving around like crazy!  Though i will admit does take a toll on the ole belly!
Food cravings: Candy,candy, candy! I don't know if it's because we were filling a pinata for Hailey's birthday or if i just have a major sweet tooth right now! Also i still really LOVE muffins, Cinnamon rolls, doughnuts, etc etc all the bakery deliciousness! I would gain some serious weight if i ate that on a daily basis!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not at the moment

Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks + some real contractions now and then 
Symptoms: Just contractions ....
Belly Button in or out? out ...but only for a couple more weeks!
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly off :( 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time (in my humble opinion)
Looking forward to: Well we are having a early birthday party for Hailey on Saturday...I'm so excited for her to have a party, it will be on the smaller side (because I'm about to pop) just a few friends, a couple games, food, pinata, she is so excited!  On the flip side I'm also a little stressed about it, so hopefully it will go well - i keep telling myself "I can do a 2 hour party" lol as long as it doesn't put me into labor!!

Here are some photos from my baby shower - really wanted to make a cute collage but my computer is going so darn slooooooowwwwwww! So these pictures are kind of all just jumbled - enjoy!

The whole group

Me and my neighbor

It was a princess theme,everybody got crowns and cookie mix in a jar as a party favor when people left.

Presents!

So much great food!
Strawberry shortcake,muffins,fruit, veggies, and more!



marshmallow pretzels and there are brownies hiding behind those.

I loved the variety of pink candy that you could bag up and take home.
I didn't get any pictures of the games but there was a disney princess trivia and then a what's in your purse game!

Overall best baby shower ever, i can't thank my neighbor enough for throwing me a baby shower! It meant a lot and was very memorable!

Hope you all are having a good start to your June!

36 Weeks

Well May is almost over....surprise surprise!
I don't have a fully shot for 36 weeks, and 36 weeks is almost over.
So here's what i got!
That belly right there- makes for a nice little table for my nightly bowl of cereal haha!
Really getting to the end now, hospital bag is packed and ready to go....finally!
(According to my baby app some people start packing that at 28 weeks!)

How far along? 36 Weeks but 37 is just around the corner.
Total weight gain/loss: So far i've gained 23lb - which im told is spot on for where i am in my pregnancy.
Maternity clothes? Yes, it's been really hard not buy new things because i'm outgrowing what i have or stuff "shrinks" ;) but i know i only have less than a month, so is it really worth it?
Stretch marks? Yes just a little.
Sleep:  Sleep is getting harder to come by these days mostly because i need to pee once or twice during the night, plus when i want to switch sides that im sleeping on i feel like i practically have to sit up to make it happen! lol
Best moment this week:  We wen to the open house at Hailey's school and got to see all the stuff she's been working on!
Seriously these photos were my favorite part of her classroom work! this girl loves her daddy!

Little bit of art - plus the kindness chain, she's told me a lot about that kindness chain she and her classmates have made over the school year it's really long!

I loved being able to see her writing and how she's progressed over the school year- one proud mommy over here! 
Seriously so many pictures, but i'll cap it off right here!

 We then went to the book fair and let her pick out a book she really wanted, i just love seeing the excitment she has for the little things in life.
Miss anything? Being able to reach my toes - need to paint my toenails really bad! Also i miss sitting on the floor and being able to get up easily!
Movement: Oh yes! lots and lots!
Food cravings: Im really into the bakery stuff, breads, muffins, cinnamon rolls, cookies you name it! But luckily for the most part i have pretty good self control.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Labor SignsJust Braxton Hicks contractions coming a little more frequent than they were before.
Symptoms: well, not really...
Belly Button in or out? out and i don't think it can go out any further - it better not!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on! but i have a feeling it will soon be time for them to come off!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time (in my humble opinion!)
Looking forward to: Warmer weather so we can swim in that pool!

Also looking forward to the baby shower my next door neighbor is throwing me - never had one so it should be fun! 

We are also going to have a birthday party for Hailey in a couple weeks....what were we thinking? i'm going to be almost 39 weeks so hopefully this low key affair doesn't put me into labor!
Working on the pin the tail on the puppy
(yes i did draw that puppy, and im pretty darn proud of it because i am NOT a good drawer!)

So there you go folks, i may try to post a bump update once a week from now on since i am pretty close to the finish line - so stay tuned!
