Bump Bump Bump - Ann Arbor, MI. - February 2014

Well, once again the "turkey is fully cooked". I am 39 weeks pregnant and have done absolutely ZERO documentation of this pregnancy on the Blog. So, today I'll play a little bit of catch up

Here are my "STATS"
NOTE: I filled this out at 27 weeks (Blue) and 37 weeks (Pink) so I'll include both.

How far along? 27 Weeks / 37 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 9 lbs / 18 lbs

Maternity clothes?
-Yes for shirts and pants, although I'm seriously not liking the way ANY pants are fitting. I do have a few pairs of Gap size 4 Curvy jeans that are low enough to accommodate baby and are SUPER comfy but I think this baby is sitting lower and they aren't super comfortable when sitting. 

-YES! I spend most days in PJs but when I go out I rotate between a few tops and for pants, I wear leggings and one specific pair of maternity jeans.

Stretch marks? Nope / Nope 

-Not bad. I usually don't have any trouble falling asleep, but a few nights a week I wake up at 3am and for one reason or another, I can't get back to sleep. 
-NOT so good. Usually get one good night a week

Working out:
-1 or 2 times a week I do a Perfect Pregnancy strength or Perfect Pregnancy yoga DVD and depending on the weather we walk 2 or 3 miles, once or twice on the weekend not as much much as I'd like. I am still toddler wrangling x2 and that could be considered "working out".

-Pretty much nothing at this point unless you'd count reaching down to tie my shoes, walking up and down the stairs a few times a day and carrying children out to and in from the car so they don't get NASTY in the snow.

Best moment this week:
-Spending Tuesday morning with E and getting to see Mini Sticks with her at the growth progress ultrasound that morning. One on one time with my big girl is so precious!

-A lunch date (NO KIDS) with my husband!!! Thank you Alison for making that happen!



Food cravings:
Red meat! / French fries

-Not finding out!

-Still not finding out but it's a lot harder now to not know!

Labor Signs:
-Just Braxton Hicks contractions

-Yes, a lot more contractions and starting to dilate

Belly Button in or out? Out / Flat (long gone)

What I miss:
-Sarah!!!! (Sushi too)

-Still Sarah!!!! (STILL Sushi)

What I am looking forward to:
-My little sister is coming for Thanksgiving!

-Meeting and naming this baby!!!

-Our girls God Mother is coming for 2 weeks! I am beyond excited for the help and love I know she is bringing with her!

Weekly Wisdom: there have been a few this week... 
-"Choose JOY!" My dear friend Katie

-"I don't think I'll start potty training so early with #2" Sarah

-"Don't focus so much on the light at the end of the tunnel that you miss the beautiful graffiti on the tunnel walls along the way." Stephanie

-Going from 2 to 3 is a lot easier than the transition from 1 to 2

-Nothing major

-starting to dilate
