35 weeks

Even though theres less than 5 weeks until his due date, time has decided to slowwww down. I miss when it was going at the speed of light!! Were ready to meet him! The weekly doctors apptointments have begun. Today I had the strep B test done so I guess I should find out the results of that at next weeks appt.

Heres the 35 week pic. Next christmas will be really exciting! Especially since he'll be almost a year old and will be able to enjoy it more than being even a few months younger :)

This is a pic of him sticking his little booty out, which he does frequently :)

And this little presh is my most fav thing weve gotten for him. This swing looks and feels so super dooper comfy. I cant wait until we get to put him in it!! My fav part is the little birds on the mobile ( I have a slight obsession with cute retroish birds).

33 and 34 weeks

So im thinking he may be dropping already. Im feeling more pressure down there and to me my belly looks to be lower...what do ya think? I tried to get the pics side by side, but that just didnt work.

The first pic is 33 weeks and the second is 34.

Anyway, I think we have pretty much the nessecities for his arrivial. Theres still a few other things I want but im just going to wait a bit on that. I had my 34 week appt on thursday and everything was fine. The doc said hes about 5.5 lbs. But thats obviously just a guess since im not getting any more ultrasounds. This coming thursday I go in for my strep B test and I think that will start the weekly appointments. Its really getting close, I cant believe it! No other news to report. If he gets any lower i'll take another pic and post it!

Early Christmas

So this week has felt like christmas because we had a few things come in the mail for the babe. First off, I ordered the Pack n Play and monitors on cyber monday because they were on sale. The pack n play came really quick but the monitors have yet to come....

And Andrea(Thanks!!) got us the bouncer and an exersaucer!! I know he wont be able to use the exersaucer until at least 3 or 4 months, but I put it together anyway to make sure all the pieces were there and everything fit together good :)

We also got our first "big" christmas tree this year. I dont know if any of you have seen the previous 3 years table top christmas tree with Steeze in front...but he sure does look different in front of this one!!!

Finally got some videos of him moving around. Enjoy!

This one was at 28 weeks. I think most of the movement is at the bottom right corner.

29 know you love my elmo jammies :)

Tonight at 31 weeks. I had just had some pumpkin pie with whipped cream. I guess he got a little sugar high...hahaha BTW, that is ALL him!!!

30 weeks, Hiccups and Sausage fingers

I dont know how much more uncomfortable I can get with 10 more weeks to go. One new thing ive experienced is hiccups. Yep, he has hiccups almost every day now. The best way I can describe it, is that it feels like im being flicked...over and over and over and over and so on. I can really feel how big hes getting and im starting to feel heavier and heavier. My fingers have recently decided to swell. I had to pry my rings off because they got so tight. I am soo not used to having sausage fingers. The weather has been pretty warm here so I think that might make it a bit worse, but its supposed to cool off soon so im hoping that will make it a little better. I think I might have got some movement on video, so im going to see if I can cut out the boring parts so its not so long and post a video soon!!

30 weeks!!

28 weeks

He sure is running out of room in there. It seems like he is always in motion and getting stronger by the day. Its actually starting to get a little uncomfortable when he pushes up on me and moves around. Its pretty neat to watch though. Ive been trying to get it on video, but everytime I press record he gets camera shy. Ill keep trying though, and hopefully post a video! Im coming up on 29 weeks and cant even believe how fast its going! Well, heres the 28 week belly....

3 more months!

Last week our first piece of baby equipment came. The stroller! (Thanks aunt Eve and Megan!) I love this stroller because it doubles as a regular travel system and a jogging stroller. It definitely beats buying 2 separate strollers!! I got bored last night so I decided to get it out of the box and put it together. I know its soon, but it was just too exciting. Only 3 more months until it gets some use! I say 3 more months now because I don’t think he’ll make it to Jan 25. Just a hunch!

Here’s a picture from the surprise baby shower. Once people send me some of the other pics I’ll post more!!

25 weeks!


Thursday, September 9, 2010


Well most of the people that read this blog already know that baby V is a BOY!! Pretty much everyone kept saying it was going to be girl, which I knew meant it would be a boy haha. He’s a big baby so far! He’s 4 days bigger than average. Our tech couldn’t get very good pictures of him because he wouldn’t stop moving, he’s so squirmy!! But cute and squirmy. It was nice to see limbs on him this time. Everything checked out good, he had both legs and feet and arms and hands. She said his spine, and brain looked good. So he seems to be pretty healthy!

I added 2 of the sono pics, even though their not very clear because of his squirmy self, and one of me today at 20wks and 2 days.

I do feel a lot of movement throughout the day so I should have suspected that he would be difficult to get some pictures! Oh well, he’s in there safe and sound and healthy. Now we can stop calling him “it”!! Woohoo!

19 Week Belly

First time wearing my maternity pants at 19 weeks :)

3 more days until ULTRASOUND!!!

Ninja Baby

So its official. I really have been feeling baby move (and kick). When I wake up in the morning I will put my hand on my belly and usually will get a “good morning” kick or two. Its definitely a neat thing and always puts a smile on my face. I cant wait until the kicks get harder and Tim will be able to feel them. Last night it must have been doing some summersaults or something because out of the blue I just felt the most intense movement and it felt like it was going all over the place!! It scared the crap out of me! But then I giggled because it was just so cool! My book says the baby is the size of a large melon now. Last week, it was a chicken breast, now its graduated to a whole melon! I think its hysterical comparing the baby’s size to foods, but it really does give you a nice visual on how its progressing!

So, one more week until the ultrasound!! I’m pretty excited to get to see baby looking like an actual human being and not just a jelly bean. Oh and I guess finding out the gender is pretty exciting too ;). I really have no idea what it is. In the beginning I was thinking boy. Then, at the beginning of the second trimester I was thinking girl. Now, I just have no idea and don’t really care to guess because it is what it is and I’ll be thrilled no matter what!

Not much else to report. Oh, I got my first pair of maternity pants. Their not as gruesome as I expected them to be. Minus the belly band id actually wear them in normal life! But so far that’s the only thing maternity I’ve gotten. I have a lot of long shirts so, so far, I’ve been good with that. I guess my next post will be after next weeks appt ( unless something comes up between now and then). Ill post some newer belly pictures too!!

Theres been alot of newness going on recently with the pregnancy. The first is that fact that im actually looking pregnant now and not just chubby. I have had 2 encounters where strangers have asked how far along I am. It was wierd to me because I thought I just looked chubby. But obviously thats just me and my silly insecurities. I am going to start to not think negativly about the whole body image thing and find some way to embrace it. I think the first step might be to maybe buy my first pair of maternity pants. Right now only one of my pants actually fit okay, and I have ONLY been wearing them.

Another new thing is that I have been feeling my stomach stretching. Its WIERD, and a little painful AND I cant get comfortable at night (because thats usually when the stretching has been occuring). Ive never been a great sleeper to begin with but this just adds to the madness.

The other night I was sitting pretty still and thought I was feeling some gas in my stomach, then all of a sudden I felt something that made my whole body jump...could it be!? It freaked me out a little bit because I think its too early to be feeling movement. The book says that normally movement starts being felt between 18 and 22 weeks. It hasent happend since so im thinking maybe my original suspisicions of gas is all it was. It was exciting to think that maybe I could finally feel this little booger moving, but I think i'll hold my excitment until I know that is what im feeling.

Ill probably be updating this thing more as I get further along because it seems like more and more new things keep occuring. Stay tuned!!!

17 weeks!

Im going to start with a belly picture since some people have been asking. This was at 16wks and 6 days...

Heres another from today, 17 wks and 1 day. Im feeling much larger since the other pic, and its only been a couple of days!

So today was my first second trimester checkup. Doc says everything is great. not much really to report on that. I did schedual the next ultrasound which will be Sept 9th!! Only a few more weeks and we'll know whether weve got a lil lady or a lil man. Im feeling pretty good. The sickness is gone (thank goodness)and ive been eating more which is good. Well I guess I'll leave it at that!!

First Ultrasound

Hey all, Yesterday was our first ultrsound. It was pretty neat although it just looks like a little blob! It jumped a couple times and was waving an arm around. We dont have a scanner so I took a picture of a picture!! I hope its not too fuzzy!!

The docotor said eveything is looking great and I have my next appt next month. Ive still been feeling pretty sick, especially yesterday, but they say that im at the peak of it so hopefully it will start getting better soon!!
