30 Weeks...are we there yet??

30 weeks...with some poufy hair?? Yea, not sure what's up with that..

Lots to do this weekend! Dan is heading back to CT for his brother's bachelor party, while I remain here in Ohio to hang out with some lovely ladies for Laura's Bachelorette party! It's a weekend getaway at Hocking excited! The weather is supposed to be beautiful - hopefully I'll have some fun pictures to post when I get back!

Here's for the Weekly Quiz!
How far along: 30 Weeks
Weight Gain: Was very wrong about my weight gain..I actually lost 2 LBs! The doc said it was probably because my appointment was later on in the day last time and I had already eaten stuff. He said I was doing well with a total 14lb weight gain - and that I deserve a milkshake! LOL. I'm pretty sure with the amount of food I will be buying for the Bachelorette party - I'll gain 2 lbs and then some this weekend alone!
Maternity Clothes: Still the same...Maternity shirts a must, about three of my pre-preg pants fit.
Stretch Marks: None Yet!
Movement: Lots of ROLLING. And yes, my back pain is still there. BOO.
Food Cravings:Orange Popsicle. Not sure if that's a pregnancy craving or an "it's 90 degrees out and even if I wasn't pregnant I'd want it.."
What I miss: hmmm. well, sleep. and to be able to walk at a normal pace again.
What I'm looking forward to: THE WEEKEND
Gender: BOY
Belly Button: OUT
Emotions: Excitement and Impatience!

29 Weeks

You can tell I didn't get much sleep the night before...SIGH...please excuse the attire and hair


How far along: 29 Weeks
Weight Gain: Yea, I think there has been a DEFINITE Growth Spurt since last week- I'm gonna say week is the doc appt where I'll get an official number
Maternity Clothes: Still the same!...Maternity shirts a must, about three of my pre-preg pants fit.
Stretch Marks: None Yet!
Movement: he is most definitely rolling around in there, but now he has positioned himself on my sciatic nerve = really bad lower back pain. This happened Monday. It's Thursday and I still haven't gotten over it.
Food Cravings: cold fruit
What I miss: My body doing what I tell it to. I have to say, I almost cried Monday when I went running..the pain was slightly scary and debilitating. I am now back at the gym using an Elliptical..if little Gray-Man moves off the nerve I can go back to running, but I have a feeling he's gonna stay where he is..
What I'm looking forward to: Lamaze class is this weekend....should be interesting.
Gender: BOY
Belly Button: OUT
Emotions: Excitement and Impatience!

Lots o Partying...

Here are some of the girls ready to go out for Laura's Bachelorette Festivities..(note my nice dark

Here is a pic of Myself, Michelle (the Bride to Be), Danielle and MIL!
*note my hair color in this pic...after seeing the pictures from Michelle's Shower, I dyed my hair back to it's Natural DARK BROWN. SO.MUCH.BETTER.

Newest Picture of Gray-Man

So, we decided to go for the 3D Ultrasound - and it was amazing. Well, actually, I kind of freaked out because he was all curled up in a little ball..his feet were right in front of his face, and of course me being me, I thought there wasn't enough room for him. The U/S tech said it was fine and that he had plenty of room to move elsewhere if he decided to. AKA - he his OBVIOUSLY Dan's child. I am sure I would be completely stretched out taking up as much room as possible if I were in there...just sayin'

Of course, I want to eat this picture up every time I see it. It makes it even harder to wait a little over 10 weeks to meet him.

28 Weeks and Officially in THIRD TRIMESTER!

Wow. THIRD TRIMESTER. The home stretch!
Part of me can't believe that I only have 12 more weeks..and the same part can't believe I STILL have 12 weeks to go...

Dan and I are making some progress on the Nursery - we(meaning Dan)installed white wood blinds on the one window in the room, along with installing a bookshelf in the closet. We are currently waiting on a glider that was purchased a week ago. Yes, I had said that I really don't care for the look of the glider..but here we are trying one out! I hope I like it!

We are working on getting some items/things to put on the wall. My goal is to have mostly everything ordered/purchased by the end of the month.


How far along: 28 weeks
Weight Gain: 16lbs
Maternity Clothes: Same again...Maternity shirts a must, about three of my pre-preg pants fit. Looking forward to the weather getting nice and those summer dresses I purchased to be worn.
Stretch Marks: None Yet!
Movement: he is most definitely rolling around in there
Food Cravings: cold fruit
What I miss: hmm...I would say walking normally. I feel like I waddle.
What I'm looking forward to: the weekend! Miss Laura's Shower and First Bachelorette party is this weekend. Also- we "may" go in and do a 3d/4d Ultrasound Sunday. Still debating whether we wait another week until he's a little bigger.
Labor Signs: NONE
Gender: BOY
Belly Button: OUT
Emotions: Too many.

A quick visit home

This weekend I traveled back home to attend a Bridal Shower for my soon to be Sister-in-Law! It was such a great time, and it was really nice to see a lot of the family I haven't seen since Christmas. Lucky for me, my brother who has just gotten back from Afghanistan - made a trip home for the weekend too!
Below are a couple pictures from Mother's Day I was able to snag..

Me and my brother!

Me and Heather!
