The Journey To {Earthly} Baby #3: Weeks 31 and 32

June 30
How Far Along: 32 weeks

Picture of Baby: Not that great of a picture (not a profile shot) and too lazy to take a picture of it to post on here. Next time you see baby s/he will be in MY ARMS!!!

Weight Gain: Up 41 pounds.

Picture of Baby IN the Belly:
{32 weeks}

Sleep: Not too shabby. Love me my afternoon naps.

Movement: Baby is still a mover and a shaker...{thank goodness}!!!

Symptoms: Same-O. Same-O.

Food Cravings: Fruit and anything COLD.

Gender: Getting anxious to find out which way the scale is going to tip!!!

My 32 week appointment went great today. Blood pressure was still in the good range which means I still do not/will not be starting twice a week non stress tests. {YEA}!!! For record sake it was 126/80. Baby measured in at 5lbs...putting him/her at 33 weeks and 1 day. Still with average femurs and a big head and belly. Heart rate was in the low 140s. Next appointment is July 14 at 34 weeks pregnant. Man we are getting C-L-O-S-E!!! Oh and today is my last week of taking my preventative antibiotics. Now that is something to be excited about!!!

Ten On Wednesday

1. This kid. He won't take a nap but once a week so this is how he cashes out most nights...
2. Loving Molly's new (from Christmas) water table!!!
3. Zoo with DADDY...means finally getting to feed the pudgies and getting to go on a camel ride!!!
Molly loved climbing through the train and walking across the rope "trampoline" (with DADDY).
Mase LOVES petting the goats. Molly NOT so much...
Mason LOVED how close the bear and tiger were on this trip to the zoo...
4. Enjoying a bike ride with his cousin Brinley. (And grandma)!!!
5. Played at 8th Avenue Park (well the beach part) with cousins. Since we weren't in suits this girl played in her shirt and diaper. As you can imagine the shirt was quite wet and dirty so after a diaper change...the pants went back on and she became shirtless instead. She loves being a naked baby!!!
6. LOVE the moments these two share!!!
7. He wanted to play in the rain. Lasted all of a minute.
8. He wants to be in ALL my {belly} pictures lately...
9. Like I said {above} LOVE these special moments (that I capture on camera) of these two!!!
10. The view can't get much better than this (in my opinion)!!!

The Journey To {Earthly} Baby #3: Weeks 29 and 30

June 16
How Far Along: 30 weeks

Picture of Baby: Not until my 32 week appointment on June 30.

Weight Gain: Afraid to weigh myself but guessing (based off my weight at the doctor's office) up 37-38 pounds.

Picture of Baby IN the Belly:
{29 weeks above}
{30 weeks below}
Sleep: Been fairly decent lately. Still require a daily nap though (unless I'm working).

Movement: Baby is a mover and shaker!!!

Symptoms: Exhausted.ALL.the.TIME.

Food Cravings: Michigan strawberries!!! Y-U-M-M-Y!!!

Gender: Had a dream baby was a BOY. But with my history...whatever I dream I'm having...I have the opposite. So GIRL?!?

My 30 week appointment went quick and with a good report. Blood pressure was 134/76. Baby's heartbeat in the 140s. Dr. J thought I was on a blood pressure pill {labetalol} so until I go on labetalol I do not need to go in twice a week for non stress tests. We shall see what 32 weeks brings us...

Ten On Wednesday

1. Check out my sweet new ride (that we got back the end of April). Absolutely loving all the extra room (as are the kiddos). And it's one thing we can check off our list in preparation for baby #3.
2. Found these gems off Brian's phone that I forgot to send my way (until last week) from way earlier last month. First fishing/swimming fun of the year at Gpa and Gma H's house.
(Mase loves anything and everything baseball...hence his helmet).
Just a daddy fishing and his precious babies being all excited about the fishies.
3. Mason Dale- 3 years 4 months and loving the sand and chilly water!!!
 4. Molly Elayne-16 months and loving the slide!!!
5. Maybe the red Popsicle wasn't such a great idea...
What is all this colored stuff on my hands (and legs)?
6. So a few weeks back while putting Mason in his car seat I dropped my phone...and put a nice crack in it. Annoying...YES. Usable yet...YES. Then maybe 5-ish days later while talking to my mom on the phone while in the mall parking lot...I stupidly tried to get the double stroller out of the back of the van...and dropped my phone again. This time it must have hit the cement just right because once off the phone with my mom...IT NO LONGER WORKED. Long story short good thing Brian was up for a new phone and that it happened the day before we left for Indy so I didn't really need a phone anyways (since I was obviously with the hubby). After 5 (kinda refreshing) days of NO phone Brian's new phone arrived and I inherited his old one...and was back in action!!! Biggest perk of the new phone is the camera. Works a thousand times better than my old one did.
7. Fun at Spring Grove Park with friends...(Memorial Day night after some yummy ice cream was first ingested).
Girlfriend thought she was big enough...and mad as all get out when she obviously was not.
8. My view (on our walks) these days. Mols has to push a mower (or ride in the wagon) and Mase is either on the Minnie Mouse rider or his push motorcycle (never his bike)...
9. My Mario lover (shirt, hat, gloves) playing baseball.
10. The first of many trips to the goats this year.

The Journey To {Earthly} Baby #3: Weeks 27 and 28

June 2
How Far Along: 28 weeks

Picture of Baby: 
Weight Gain: Unknown...guessing at least up 31 pounds.

Picture of Baby IN the Belly:
{27 weeks above}
{28 weeks below}
Sleep: Have some good nights and some not so great nights. Typically the sleep insomnia is when I have to work the next day.

Movement: Baby is a mover and shaker!!!

Symptoms: Back pain. Hunger. T-I-R-E-D. But did have a three day spurt of energy!!!

Food Cravings: Anything COLD!!!

Gender: Thankful for a healthy growing bundle...

Had my 28 week appointment and growth scan today. Mase actually came with me to my appointment and was SO excited to see his baby {brother}. Anyways he was a perfect little angel through my entire appointment...labs (for glucose test), waiting in the waiting room, ultrasound, peeing on a stick, getting blood pressure taken by nurse, blood pressure was high so I had to lay on my side, got my dTap shot, and finally talking to Dr. J. {It was not planned that he was going to come but he was adamant that I was NOT leaving without him}. Haven't heard the results of my glucose test yet...fingers crossed I passed. Ultrasound was great. Baby is measuring 3lbs 3oz at a week ahead...with a big belly and average legs (femurs). Heartbeat was 157. Fluid around baby looked great. Like I said Bp was high. But it always spikes at this point in pregnancy so I wasn't terribly surprised. The plan here on out is that I go back in two weeks for a regular prenatal check up (wants to keep a close eye on my Bp) and in 4 weeks for another growth scan. And at that point I will also start my twice a week non stress tests. Hard to believe I've entered my last trimester. Getting more and more excited to meet this miraculous lil MIRACLE!!!
