28 weeks with baby girl!

Monday, November 28, 2016

So MANY changes since my last post. My belly has really popped and it's so fun. I really love this stage of pregnancy. She moves so much! I posted about this on instagram but as an expecting mother you get a lot of comments about your SIZE. Too small.. too big. When really it should be all about health and that sweet growing baby don't ya think? :) Thanksgiving was wonderful. Other than River didn't sleep. Like at all. One night he was up from 12 to 4:30! He has a hard time sleeping anyways..but when he's not in his own bed. It's a nightmare. So many tired tears happened over the weekend and my family as always picked me up and helped with Riv so much and hugged me and loved me and made everything feel ok. hahah. Everything is so much harder with NO SLEEP. Don't ya think? And when I do get a good old stretch in there I feel like a new woman. Like I can fight crime and cure diseases. Haha! 

weight gain: a little over 10 pounds. 

sleep: read above. thanks Riv ;) Oh but last night! he slept through the night! But I was up at 1, 4, and 6 just guzzling water and OJ. hahah. Give me all the beverages. 

missing: working out hard! with the no sleep and pregnancy thing I haven't been able to much. 

craving: drinks. water. ice water. OJ. Chocolate milk. Smoothies. YUMMMMMMY! The best!!!!!!!

feeling: beautiful. (in the i'm grateful for this experience kind of way) I am starting to feel a lot more back pain and stretching. And so much more pressure than with Riv! She's just so much lower! Which means I'm peeing so much more too! Haha. I peed my pants so much last week laughing with my family. Haha. 

gender: i still can't believe it's a girl.  

best moment of the week: being with FAMILY! 

looking forward to: work this week! all of my mini sessions are this week and I'm so excited! And then I'm off work for a month for Christmas. :)  OH AND GILMORE GIRLS! Loved the revival! Ahhh! Oh and I have to write about this because it's so sweet. Ryan has said multiple times how much he loves my belly and how much it's growing. He's the best. He will be the best Dad to our girl. I can't wait. 


25 weeks with baby girl

25 weeks! I made the boys do a tiny photo shoot with me this morning because look at them. I love them so much and River's crooked smile is probably the best thing in the world. My favorite ever.  I'm staring to FEEL big. I'm on the tail end of the "did you eat a cheeseburger or are you pregnant?" stage.. So I don't necessarily look as big as I feel. She's popping out so much more though and I'm gaining weight pretty swiftly. I'm starting to get a lot more back pain but it's pretty manageable after a nice back rub from Ryan. ;)  River is sleeping at night again. So me and Ryan feel like we can function a little better. And River is happier too. And he is SO MUCH FUN. Talking so much. "More cookie please!" "Move please mom." "Bug, where ya go?" "Thank you mommy daddy." "I wuv you" "Bernie lay DOWN!" We love him so much. 

Love and peace! xo
