28 Weeks: End of November!

This week was super productive- my Mom came into town and we were able to get a ton of great furniture for the nursery, including the Catalina Crib from Pottery Barn kids, and a 6-drawer white dresser & a blue overstuffed chair w/white piping from my mother's favorite SoCal store (Just Like the Model).  With the custom closet we purchased a few weeks ago, the nursery is almost complete....now only if I could pick out the paint colors.....and find a rug.  Travis was home this entire 4-day weekend so he was able to get the crib completely assembled in the nursery- and it looks so good!  Thanksgiving was also a success; we couldn't help but mention to our guests how the following year will include a 9-month old in a highchair at the table!

Month/Week: 6 Months/28 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 17+ lbs
Feeling: so thankful for the amazing friends in CA that we are able to celebrate Thanksgiving with, and for our families who's continuous generosity is so greatly appreciated, and of course for each other & Hunter.....so I'm feeling sentimental I guess?  Lol!
Missing: glass(es) of Mulled Wine at Thanksgiving
Cravings: Benihana!!!  Drove by one today...my mouth is watering just typing this
Anything making you queasy: I swear I'll eat almost anything these days
I'm Loving: our new crib for the baby : )
Happy or Moody: Content, relaxed!
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: Starting to feel the pressure in my lower abdomen..welcome to the 3rd trimester huh?!
Sleep: Maybe waking up to turn over 3-4 times a night, it takes a lot of pillow re-situating!
Wedding Ring On Still?:  Yes, even if it's getting tight, I don't care

Looking forward to: the entire nursery finally coming together! Below are some pics of the crib and our trip to pick out our Christmas tree!!

Your baby's the size of an eggplant!

27 Weeks: November and my 3rd Trimester!!

We had our 6-month checkup -3rd trimester- checkup this week and everything was great- Baby O is a little over 1.5 pounds now, the eyes are forming and little eyelashes too!  Doctor said that my weight gain thus far has been "ideal" which was good to hear- did I mention all my cookie cravings?  Baby O even kicked him while the doctor was searching for the heartbeat- three times ; )  Thanksgiving is coming up, and I can't stop thinking of all the yummy things we'll make and eat that day, hopefully he is as tired as I am after we have turkey!  My husband Travis and I also took a mini BabyMoon to Hollywood this weekend to the Walk of Fame- lived here for over 6 years and still hadn't been!  Pics below, it definitely felt like Fall downtown!

Baby is the size of a rutabaga??? I'll have to try one....

Month/Week: 6 Months/27 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs
Feeling: sometimes I can compare it a bag of sand, I get full so fast!
Missing: Ahi Tuna!
Anything making you queasy: Nope!
I'm Loving: looking more pregnant from the front & maternity leggings- a god send
Happy or Moody: Happy : )
Gender: Boy
Movement: I feel totally in-sync with little Baby's O sleep patterns, maybe b/c he's only waking up when I do, and he takes naps for most of the day and wakes up during/after I eat a meal... hopefully this be SOME indication of his sleeping habits when he's here...
Symptoms: Are my feet and legs swelling...?
Sleep: I'm waking up well before my alarm these days!
Wedding Ring On Still?: Yes, although I'm surprised my fingers haven't swelled at all because I swear my toes look fatter lately.
Looking forward to: the last trimester w/my little guy inside my belly : )  I think I'll miss him in there!

26 Weeks: Hello November!

It's the first week of November and I'm realizing that next week is the end of my 2nd trimester -or the "fun trimester" I've heard it referred to- so I'd better live it up this week while I can!  No appts this week, although I realized (I know, probably should have sooner) than any kind of sugar makes this baby go crazy inside!  Like he's doing a set of pilates??  Needless to say we've been enjoying the leftover Halloween candy but now it's back to fruits.   This weekend is my California shower and I'm so excited to spend the afternoon with my good girlfriends and relax : )  Baby O's hearing has pretty much developed as much as possible in the womb this week, so he's hearing a LOT of what's been going on...which would be nice if he could remind me of some things, I swear I forget at least 10 random things each day....

Month/Week: 5 Months/26 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: My weigh-in is next week...
Feeling: energetic!  
Missing: Red wine by my fireplace at night with my husband, AND we just picked up 12 bottles from our wine membership at Longshadow where we were married- I made him promise not to open my favorites.
Cravings: Cinnamon Dolce Lattes from Starbucks..mmm....
Anything making you queasy: I'm always hungry.  So hardly anything is making me queasy lol!
I'm Loving: how excited my husband is about his boy even when I remind him about late night feedings and how much coffee he'll need to run out and get me when we aren't sleeping anymore
Happy or Moody: So happy, I feel like I might burst with happiness sometimes just thinking about holding my own little newborn
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: No crazy symptoms, although I've definitely popped this week- no more weird looks from strangers wondering if I'm really pregnant or not
Sleep: I slept in today (Sunday) until 6:30- latest all week!
Wedding Ring On Still?: Yep, although I finally took out the belly button ring- it looked like it was starting to suffocate.
Looking forward to: My CA shower this Sunday afternoon, I know the girls have been prepping all week and I'm so excited to see what they came up with, I know it will be fabulous!

Some pics from the CA shower this Sunday:

25 Weeks: End of October!

Our Oregon family shower was this weekend and Travis and we couldn't wait to get home and spend a little time in the cold and rain (I almost can't believe I said that)!  We were overwhelmed by all whom attended and all the love for our new family "addition". My SIL & MIL did an AMAZING job with the shower, and everything went so perfectly!  I couldn't have asked for a better day : )  Pics below!  This week the baby is growing his hair- if we could see it, we'd be able to see the texture and color already...

Month/Week: 5 Months/25 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 15+ lbs
Feeling: so overjoyed we were able to fly home this weekend and spend our mini-vacay with family & good friends, such a special time!
Missing: does sleeping on my back count?
Cravings: leftover Halloween candy
Anything making you queasy: Not this week-thankfully
I'm Loving: the claw-foot jet whirlpool baby spa that Bear dog got us for the shower, so bourgeois
Happy or Moody: SO happy to be prego
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: Achy back- good thing I have a live-in masseuse! 
Sleep: Getting the hang of it, a heating pad does wonders

Looking forward to: going to Portland this weekend with my husband for our family baby shower!  I can't wait to see and spend some time with everyone and close friends : )

24 Weeks: October

Baby O attended his first mini-concert this week at our Tilly's company/Holiday party, it was a rap performer that the baby either really enjoyed or was super agitated with; regardless there was a lot of movement during the songs!  The baby is now over a pound, he's getting heavy....we also went to our hospital's orientation this week and learned about the rooms w/ocean views and the "golden hour"- the first hour spent with the parents after the baby is delivered : )  Halloween is also this week, Travis is actually letting me turn on the lights this year!

Month/Week: 5 Months/24 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 15+ lbs
Feeling: seemingly normal for a prego girl
Missing: the champagne I could have indulged in for free at my company party
Cravings: Sugar cookies, gingersnap cookies.  Cookies.
Anything making you queasy: Too many cookies.
I'm Loving: any cooler outside temperatures, this heat wave is making me sick!
Happy or Moody: Happy :)
Gender: Boy
Symptoms: My belly button ring starting to suffocate!
Sleep: Waking up maybe 2-3 times a night, I think I'm subconsciously training myself for feedings
Wedding Ring On Still?:  Yes
Looking forward to: Handing out candy to all the kids on Halloween and getting to the 6 month mark soon!!  We can't wait to meet you Baby O!
