Another Update!

I know I have been pretty hit and run post and run with my blog updates these last several months, and I am so sorry you guys. But in these next few months I do want to try and make a better effort to keep you all posted on mine and baby girl's progress! I will also post some previous bump pics so that you can see just how much this little girl has grown! It really amazes me every single day.

So, here is a little pregnancy survey I took from another blogger {waves hi Mrs. Dew!} and I also added in a couple other things I though you all might find interesting.


How far along? 28 weeks - hello 7th month!

Size of baby: this lil' miss now weighs in at about two and a half pounds and stands (or rather lies) at almost 16 inches.

Maternity clothes? I am pretty much still only wearing maternity pants. All of my tops and dresses are still juniors! Maternity clothes still just seem so giant to me.

Stretch marks? none yet...and boy am i trying everything to "prevent" them! ::knocking on every piece of wood i can find::

Sleep? Yes, please. All day, every day. I am sleeping 9-10 hours every night. Sleep is my friend.

Food cravings: Oh lord, yes! Fruit, fruit, fruit and more fruit. More specifically pinapples from Costa Rica, Oranges from South Texas and Fuji Apples. I know, I feel like I have turned into a produce expert overnight. Long gone are the days where we can buy whatever fruit is on sale. Ha. And if we do, I will literally throw a fit and have a meltdown take one bite, cringe and have to throw it out. I am still not sure how a child that CRAVES fruits of all kinds can be the product of me & hubs!

Food Aversions: Nothing so far. But my hunger levels are in a category all on their own these days. I think I go from completely full to starving in a matter of minutes. And then watch out. I literally feel like I’m 2 seconds away from gnawing my arm off like a rabid raccoon.

Gender: Team pink!

Movement? YES! A one-person dance-off is happening in my belly as we speak. Flips, tumbles, kicks, you name it, she's doing it!

Best moment this week? Hearing her heartbeat. It never, ever gets old. Passing my glucose test! Getting my girl scout cookies! (no one said all the answers had to be pregnancy related). Also, I just love sitting in bed at night with hubs, watching the belly move.

And, on a more shallow note, an overall best moment this entire pregnancy would have to be that I have not had one bad hair day this while time. Pregnancy hormones seriously equal winning!

Looking forward to? My baby showers that are quickly approaching. And also seeing my little mini-me at our 4D ultrasound! And of course finally meeting her in about 12-ish weeks!!

What I miss: Doing things on my own — like moving things, being able to lift anything, getting something off the top shelf…I’m getting too awkward to fit into small spaces and/or to stand on a chair, so I always need help.

Milestones? Baby girl's eyes are now opening and closing! If I lift up my shirt and stand near a bright light she will now kick and move!

I think that's all for now. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy this fantstic weather! I miss you all.

  12. Okay, so you have beautiful hair. I feel like a middle schooler asking this question...what do you use to clip it back with? It looks great and I can't seem to keep mine clipped to the side well. Could you possibly do a "hair post"? I'm sure it's different now that you're pregnant so might be fun for others to read too :)
