29-33 Weeks...


 

How Far Along? 
33 weeks... somehow I didn't even realize 5 weeks had passed since I last shared.. if I do that again the baby may be here!
Last night at church I think about seven people asked me if the baby was coming any day... nope 7 more weeks... and I went 11 days over last time! 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 
43 lbs wonderful pounds... all baby of course. 

Baby Related Purchases: 
We finally purchased a car seat on Black Friday... he will have something of his own. We have also been given a few outfits.


Maternity Clothes: 
My sweet sister-in-law just gave me some clothes so I feel like I have some cute stuff until the baby gets here!

Sleep: 
I have been sleeping really well and have a lot of energy!

Movement: 
We are to flips and hiccups!

What I miss: 
Still feeling mostly good and not missing much. Hoping this holds out until the end.

Cravings: 
Hmmmm... I actually can't think of any particular craving... just non-cravings. Not really big on Italian food (mainly red sauce).

Anything making you queasy or sick: 
I got a stomach bug after Thanksgiving (aka the worst), but I am better now!

Gender:
It's a BOY!!!

Everett Cole :)




Labor Signs: 
Still sporadic Braxton Hicks, but thats it. I am sure there will be no labor until the end of January. 

Symptoms:

Belly and kicks!

Best moments this week: 
So many good moments... I will probably miss some!
*I haven't even shared Halloween yet!

Baby time!


Size of Baby: 
Right now it says a Cauliflower... and another says a ferret. But I feel sure this baby is bigger than a ferret!

For the little:
Wow is all I have to say, in just two short months (or less hopefully) we will be holding you. We truly can't wait. All the prep is in full swing. BD and Jman kiss my belly everyday. Daddy and I pray for you and your future! We love you!

26-28 Weeks...





How Far Along? 
28 weeks... hello third trimester!!! Almost Halloween, one month until Thanksgiving, two months until Christmas... and three months until baby Everett!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 
35-40 lbs... I will be happy if my weight gain stays doesn't go past 50 lbs. I promise I am not eating cookies... all the time :) After three pregnancies I have just come to realize this is what I gain.

Baby Related Purchases: 
We pulled out baby bouncers, bath tub, and such. At some point baby Everett will get something new!


Maternity Clothes: 
It has finally been a little cooler so I have been enjoying some fun fall maternity clothes. I also had a sweet friend give me a bunch of clothes to wear, so I feel like I have somethings... for the time being!

Sleep: 
I have been sleeping really well and have a lot of energy!

Movement: 
The kicks are getting stronger each day! I think we even have some flips at this point!

What I miss: 
Hmmm... I actually feel pretty good lately. Nothing... which is good news. I am soaking this time up! I hope it lasts through the holidays!

Cravings: 
Sweets have sounded pretty good. And sandwiches with lunch meat (no worries... I heat up the lunch meat ;)). And spicy... give me all the spicy.

Anything making you queasy or sick: 
Tomato sauces and red meats sometimes give heartburn or indigestion... or something.

Gender:
It's a BOY!!!

Everett Cole :)




Labor Signs: 
I have been having some Braxton Hicks contractions... but hopefully actual labor is a long time away!!!

Symptoms:

Belly and kicks!

We are going to be aunt and uncle for the first time in a few weeks!!!
Finishing the nursery and "Big kid room." 
We have a quick "babymoon"/ we just need to get away for a couple days coming up. We are headed to the mountains!

Size of Baby: 
Right now it says a large eggplant... and another says a Fennec fox.

For the little:
Sweet Everett, we are enjoying your kicks, rolls, and somersaults. We cannot believe in less than three short months you will be in our arms. Right now Jameson constantly asks me to open my belly (pull up my shirt) to show you things and Bailey Drew loves to feel you kick. Daddy and I are praying for you each day and preparing for all the ways you will change our family! We are so excited!
