Pregnancy Blog: 24 Weeks

How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 15 pounds! Seems like a lot, considering I still feel like I weigh the same as before I became pregnant. My pre-pregnancy jeans think otherwise:-/

Maternity clothes: Yes! I officially do not fit into any of my old jeans or shorts. Good thing maternity clothes make me feel amazing.

Stretch marks: None! And still using Palmer's Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks everyday around my belly, sides, and breasts.

Sleep: I've been getting really good sleep recently, thanks to my Snoozer pregnancy pillow. It really is the best. Sometimes I will wake up in the middle of the night only to realize that Simeon has taken it away from me and is cuddling it! I caught this picture today while he was taking a nap, ha!

Best moment this week: Finally finding a name that we can both agree on! I love it so much. But it will be a secret until January ;)

Miss anything? Smoked salmon. And wine, still. Tonight I am making Beef Bourgignon, so hopefully that will curb my red wine cravings ;)

Movement: Yep, she's still moving around like crazy! And the occasional hiccups make me so happy:)

Food cravings: Peach cobbler, making that tonight actually!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Not queasy, but I still feel so incredibly light-headed and out of breath a lot. Only complaint I can make so far!

Gender: Girl!

Labour signs: None. Phew.
Symptoms: Shortness of breath, sore crotch area (sorry for the visual), and starting to feel a little more fatigued.

Belly button in or out? In!
Engagement ring on or off? On:)

Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy!

Looking forward to: Going to Miami this weekend to see Simeon's family. They are the nicest people on earth. Also, his best friend just had a baby so we are going to visit him as well, I can't wait!

Ohh baby

This past weekend, I went to a baby expo with my best friend, Paige. She is due on the exact same day as I am: January 17, 2013. Neither pregnancy was planned, but we found out about the same time that we were both pregnant and then about 12 weeks we found out that we were due on the same day! What are the chances? I couldn't be happier to be sharing this experience with her. She is having a boy and I am having a girl. They will definitely be soulmates.

While we were at the baby expo, they were doing ultrasounds for $15. Since I knew that I would probably not be having any other ultrasounds prescribed by my midwife, I had to do it! She was moving around a lot but just would not take her hands away from her face (Paige's boy was doing the exact same). So this is the best picture that we got. Here she is in all of her adorable-ness. I am falling more and more in love with her.

Pregnancy Blog: 22 weeks

How far along?  22 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 13 pounds! I haven't gained any since last week but still feel like I'm eating a lot!

Maternity clothes: Yep:) I always told myself that I would never purchase maternity clothes because I thought they all looked tacky. That was until I tried on a pair of maternity jeans. I don't think I'll ever go back to wearing normal jeans again!

Stretch marks: Still None! And still using Palmer's Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks everyday around my belly, sides, and breasts.

Sleep: I've been doing much better about sleeping. Except I've been having the craziest dreams! Two nights ago, I had a dream of my little girl. Sigh.

Best moment this week: People finally noticing that I am pregnant!

Miss anything? Wine. Ooooh how I can't wait until the day I can sit back and have a glass of wine after dinner. The best feeling.

Movement: Yep, she's still moving around like crazy!

Food cravings: Nothing this week. But I seem to be getting a sweet tooth!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Not sick, but I swear I can't catch my breath for anything!

Gender:  Girl!

Labour signs: None. Phew.
Symptoms: Shortness of breath, round ligament pain, and my breasts have started to produce milk (sorry if that's too much info! )

Belly button in or out? In!
Engagement ring on or off? On:)

Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy!

Looking forward to: Going to a baby expo this weekend with my best friend who is also pregnant and due on the same day as me. Can't wait!

Pregnancy Blog: 21 weeks

Sorry for the weird messy hair ;)

How far along?  21 weeks

Total weight gain/measurements: 13 pounds! I started out at 131 and now I am at 144. Seems like a lot but according to this weight gain tracker, I am right on track! 

Maternity clothes: Yes! I have two pairs of jeans and two pairs of shorts so far and a few shirts. They are soooo comfy! I think I might wear them even after I deliver ;)

Stretch marks: None!  I'm using Palmer's Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks everyday around my belly, sides, and breasts and have none to show so far..


Sleep: Recently, I haven't been getting much sleep mostly because my tailbone has been killing me and it hurts to sleep on my back or side so it's hard to find a comfortable position.

Best moment this week: Being able to see her move around in my belly. I started feeling her kick just before 17 weeks but only when I pressed on my belly. Now I can see her every little move:)


Miss anything? The only thing I ever miss is certain foods. I miss eating sushi but I am especially missing smoked salmon. I would kill for a bagel with cream cheese and smoked salmon! 

Movement: Yes, lots!

Food cravings: I never really had food cravings except for a few in the first trimester but last night I was craving funfetti cupcakes? I need to stop watching Cupcake Wars on Food Network!


Anything making you queasy or sick? The only thing that's grossed me out has been guacamole. And I usually love it?

Gender:  Girl!

Labour signs: None.

Symptoms: Shortness of breath, heartburn, aching tailbone, and still very weird and vivid dreams.

Belly button in or out? In!

Engagement ring on or off? On.  

Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy!

Looking forward to: My next appointment. I can't wait to sign up for Hypnobirthing classes!
