Bumpdate 28-29 Weeks

Today was a long one. Got up at 5 to take the husband and some co-workers to the airport, taught all day and had some parent-teacher conferences today. Needless to say I am wiped out.

I forced myself to cook the dinner I had planned, but by the time it was done my "pre-dinner" filled me up. What's a pre-dinner? Well, it is what this pregnant lady eats while the real meal is cooking due to extreme hunger. Unfortunately, this some time leads to eating more pre-dinner than intended leading to a full belly and lunch an dinner for tomorrow.

On to all the boring stuff you really care about.

How far along? 28, almost 29 weeks

Size of baby? Cauliflower- 16 inches and 2.5lbs I can't believe how big she's getting!

Total weight gain? 20- yes that's 8 pounds more than last month- better lay off the pizza and ice cream ;)

Maternity Clothes? Maternity pants for sure, some tops, but a lot of my "old" stretchy, loose dresses and tops. Finding that many of my "normal" shirts are turning into belly shirts

Sleep? Still can't complain too much, few more leg cramps, getting too hot lately (the ac may be on all winter if it doesn't get better)

Best moment: normal glucose test, hearing her heartbeat and feeling her kick where my midwife was pushing, finding a love note in class today, feeling Audrey move all the time

Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach, sitting on the floor conferring with my students

Movement? Yes! All the time! Stinson got to feel her boxing match the other night. She doesn't like to be pushed on.

Cravings? Nothing really. Still love pizza

Symptoms? Leg cramps a few times a week, heartburn, minor back aches here and there, sore feet, oh and apparently I snore now

Belly button in or out? In- it's stretching out though

Wedding rings on or off? Thick band on, diamond off (it's too tight :( )

Mood? Still normal, crankier on Fridays

Looking forward to? 3 Day weekend, seeing Pitch Perfect, and washing and folding more baby clothes.

The picture should be explained by the above events. The belly is all you care about any way, trust me the face isn't pretty tonight!

Baby Shower Fun

This weekend my sister, Jenna, threw me an ADORABLE baby shower. Little Audrey is so lucky to have her for an Auntie! I am so grateful that she and Brady live close son they'll get to be around all of the time. Thanks for spoiling me with your time and talents this weekend Jenna.

I will let the pictures do most of the "talking". The shower was themed around children's books with a touch of pink of course. Thanks to the Simeroths for opening up your home to host. Audrey and I got spoiled by all that came.

Audrey comes from a strong line of women on both sides of her family. She had both grandmas here, two of her three great grandmas, and one o her great aunts. It is awesome to know my daughter has such awesome, Godly role models to look up to. I know all of them will pour much wisdom into her. Thanks to all who came out to make Saturday such a special day for me as I get ready to be a mom.
