30 weeks!!! :)

How far along? 30 weeks 2 days! I'm just gonna say how excited I am to be this far and I'm that much closer to holding my son :)

Baby's size: at the doctor yesterday they told me weighs 4 lbs 2 ounces. He is getting big!!! :)

Total weight gain/loss: 26 lbs. I'm shocked I gained 2 lbs in less than a week, but I've finally gained my appetite back so I'm eating everything in sight!!!

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? I'm sleeping better. I still wake up a lot to pee but other than that I'm starting to be able to sleep more comfortably.

Maternity clothes? Maternity shirts and yoga pants!!! Love em :)

Best moment this week: I went for my 4D ultrasound yesterday and I'm completely head over heels in love with my precious baby boy!!! He looks so much like his daddy! :) Overall, I'm having a much better week then last week!

Worst moment this week: nothing real bad, although I did learn he is sucking on his cord which freaks me out with it being so close to his head so I'm constantly waiting for him to move and kick do I know he is alright.

Cravings: cherry coke

Symptoms: swollen everything and my gums are bleeding like crazy!

Miss Anything? Seeing my feet but Justin so kindly painted them for me the other night :)

Movement: he is quite the mover and I love every kick, punch and roll he gives me :) he'd gonna keep this mommy on her toes when he gets here.

Anything making you queasy? Just odors, we all know our sense of smell is heightened so little smells make me gag!

Sex: BOY!!! Konnor Bryant :)

What is baby up to?
My baby's eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen. Even after birth, my baby will keep those little peepers closed for a good part of the day. He will respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision and only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

29 weeks...

How far along? 29 weeks 4 days!

Baby's size: he is now the size of a butternut squash. He should weigh 2.5 lbs and be 15 inches long, according to

Total weight gain/loss: 24 lbs as of today

Stretch marks? Nope. I've been very lucky, I'm just hoping I don't jinx myself.

Sleep? Sleep is totally out the window now. I'd rather sleep on my back because I have sharp pains when I sleep on my side but after while I can no longer breath.

Maternity clothes? I'm growing out of my pants like crazy. I feel like nothing looks good anymore.

Best moment this week: I went to the doctor today and his heartbeat was 140 and he is super active. We also got his crib today and my mom got us this super cute diaper bag :)

Worst moment this week: my feet have been horribly swollen and I got put on iron pills today. Also, it seems like everything I eat these days give me indigestion and I feel miserable

Cravings: sunflower seeds.

Symptoms: difficulty breathing, indigestion and swollen feet.

Miss Anything? Sleeping comfortably

Movement: he is so big now that his kicks have pretty much went away because all I can ever feel is him rolling and turning. It's getting kinda painful but I wouldn't trade it for anything but it helps me know he is safe :)

Anything making you queasy or sick? With indigestion pretty much everything does

Sex: BOY!!! Konnor Bryant :)

What is baby up to? His muscles and lungs are maturing and his head is growing to make room for his developing brain. He also needs me to drink all the calcium I can because his bones are still hardening. He is getting so big :)

Spoiling Konnor Bryant...

These are gifts that many sweet friends have given to us for Konnor. We greatly appreciate everything everyone has done for us. There is many more things we have gotten from people but these are just a few and I'll post more once I get to them in his closet.

Loving on Kayden...

I love the days I get to keep my nephew, I don't get to often because I have started working 6 days a week now but the days we spend together are always so fun. He loves all things Lightening McQueen and Tractors. He can point out tractors and say it now. He has a pair of John Deere cowboy boots that he just has to wear! He will walk up to you and say "boots" and try to put them on himself. He loves to poke at my belly button and laugh and he also will give every fist bumps. Everytime I start to leave to go home he will turn and tell everyone bye and run under my legs and will cry to let him go with me. I love my little buddy and I can't believe how big and handsome he is getting.
