How far along are you? 29 weeks  
Total weight gain: 19 pounds!  
Countdown? 10 more weeks to go
Maternity Clothes?  they're a must these days
Stretch Marks?  :( yup. i found a couple on my right side...
Sleep: getting more and more uncomfortable and restless. i wake up several times a night with him kicking and moving around.
Best moments: enjoying time with kevin's family here in oklahoma! it's fun being around all our nieces and nephews. it makes me so excited for when colsen will be running around playing with them too!
Missing anything? being able to bend down easily to pick things up. it's getting more complicated the bigger i get!
Movement? yes! it's not so much quick kicks and punches anymore; now that he's getting bigger, i feel him moving around all the time and it's entertaining watching my belly move too. 
Food Cravings: milkshakessss
Symptoms: heartburn, pelvic and joint pain
Belly Button in or Out? halfway still and stretching
Happy or Moody?  been crying a lot more lately... goodness.
Looking Forward to: heading to st. louis and getting our life situated there for the summer! i'm also excited to explore the city -- any suggestions?? i hear the zoo is free so i'm stoked about that! :)

baby shower!

Thursday, April 10, 2014

 ^^ we played a game with the strings - everyone had to estimate the circumference of my belly and cut the string to that size. let's just say, most of everyone was way off haha

i'm so thankful for all who came to the baby shower! it was wonderful having my close friends and family be there to support me. the decorations were adorable and the food was yummy thanks to my sister stephanie! with all the cute baby gifts, i'm getting more and more excited for our little boy to come :)

we are now in oklahoma visiting kevin's family before we drive up to st. louis where we'll be living for the summer. oh and a crazy thing happened: we woke up to two earthquakes last night! it was so weird.. i've never experienced an earthquake before! they weren't big and didn't last too long. it kinda felt like when you feel turbulence in an airplane. but anyways, we're enjoying our time with all of his family and this warmer weather here!

poland : malbork castle

Monday, March 31, 2014

this castle was incredible! we did the self guided tour and it took us about 3 1/2 hours. my parents went on the tour with a tour guide and it took them even longer. the crazy thing is that we only got to see a small portion of the castle during that time. the malbork castle is the largest castle in the world by surface area, and the largest brick building in Europe!

i can't believe i'll be meeting our little guy in 13 weeks! now that i'm in to the last trimester, things are getting REAL. especially since we're moving temporarily for the summer to st. louis, i'm looking for a doctor and figuring out which hospital i'll deliver in, etc, etc (!!!) i'm figuring out which baby things will stay at home and will be traveling with us. crazy stuff coming up which i'm excited/nervous about. oh, and we discovered the city library this week (i forget how awesome libraries are) so i've been reading several books and educating myself as much as possible about labor and everything pregnancy/post pregnancy. there's so much to learn and be prepared for.


How far along are you? 27 weeks + 2/3 of the way done!
Total weight gain: around 18 lbs now
Countdown? 13 WEEKS
Maternity Clothes? ohhh yesss and nothing else 
Stretch Marks? nope!
Sleep: i try to get as much sleep as possible these days + the crazy dreams definitely come with it
Best moments: planning the future with kevin
Missing anything? being able to bend down easily to put on my shoes... simple things are starting to get harder these days 
Movement? YES!
Food Cravings: thin mints (i stalked the girl scout website to see where to buy them) :)
Symptoms: i think i pulled a groin muscle when we were speed walking from parking to get to the jazz game last night so... not a fun feeling 
Belly Button in or Out? half in - half out
Happy or Moody?  feeling pretty good these days. the other day i was feeling down just because i felt like there was nothing to do or no one to hang out with. so instead of pouting around, i decided to work on putting our office together. i built a square shelf out of the extra wood we have and stained it. i hung pictures on the wall - anyways, that cheered me up and i was productive! (let's just say, i was proud of myself) :)
Looking Forward to: baby shower next weekend
