::Baby G Take 2:: Week 25

How far along? 25 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 12 lbs. last check a few weeks ago. I'll find out for sure next week.

Stretch marks? Not yet, fingers are still crossed

Symptoms: Mainly the heartburn. I had some crazy back pain on Saturday but I was also on my feet cooking for about 4 hours and cleaning before that for our Friendsgiving (which was amazing!!)

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well. The Snoogle hasn't really been that comfortable this go round which is interesting since I loved it before. Some nights I am waking 2-3 times to pee and some nights I am sleeping straight though. 

Best moment this week: I'll do the last two weeks since I skipped last week. We went to Busch Gardens with Henley and she was so fun. She loved Elmo and was actually star struck. It was the best. Macie also is moving SO much these days and even kicks Henley when she lays on my stomach. Love it.

Have you told family and friends: Yes everyone knows. 

Miss anything: Starting to miss being comfortable in certain clothes. A few days this week I just could not wait to be naked and out of tight clothing!

Movement: So much!

Food cravings: Craved the guacamole from Cantina Laredo---they make it tableside. I still haven't managed to get my hands on any just yet.

Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes for sure

Gender: GIRL! Macie Paige

Labor Signs: None thank God

Belly Button in or out? SO far out. I don't remember popping this much with Henley

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

Happy or Moody: Happy but I did have a few cranky days here and there.

Looking forward to: Getting really started on the nursery. While we were in Tampa for Busch Gardens, we hit up Ikea to get things for the girls room. Ted is planning to start painting this week or this weekend sometime. We have new things for Henley's room and we have some things to move into Macie's room once painted. Cannot wait.  Non-baby related: I can't wait for Thanksgiving. While our Friendsgiving was so fun, we didn't have my mom's dressing or cranberry sauce and those two with turkey is my favorite all-in-one-bite combination....mmmmm!

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!!!!

::Baby G Take 2:: Week 23

How far along? 23 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 12 lbs. last week, haven't weighed myself since

Stretch marks? Not yet and getting better about using my Mama Mio Belly Butter

Symptoms: Again the heartburn is an every meal occurrence. I have some muscle pain in my lower abdomen that is just a dull ache that I don't remember from Henley. Other than that, just a back ache here and some exhaustion there.

Sleep: Sleeping great, especially Saturday night in the hotel with hubs for our date night.

Best moment this week: Macie moving so much I can see her jump on the outside. Also date night with hubs was great. We went to a nice dinner (see craving) and went to the movies to see Gone Girl. We then stayed at an awesome hotel for the night. It was our first night away from Henley and it went surprisingly well! She kept telling my mom we were at work. So glad to see when we are in the hospital with Macie, she won't be traumatized.

Have you told family and friends: Yes everyone knows. 

Miss anything: Nothing really that I can remember

Movement: Yes kicking so much. I love it. She seems to be most active when I lay down in bed.

Food cravings: When Ted and I were planning our date night, all I could think about was a yummy steak. We went to a restaurant called Chops and had a really great filet with bernaise sauce---definitely satisfied the craving. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: No.

Have you started to show yet: Yes (see pic above)

Gender: GIRL! Macie Paige

Labor Signs: None. 

Belly Button in or out? It's out and people at work are commenting on it so it's out and visible to the world.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

Happy or Moody: Happy!

Looking forward to: This weekend we are going to Busch Garden with my mom and Henley. I'm so excited to see her reaction to all of the animals and the Sesame Street area. I think she will love it. 

We are also planning an Ikea trip while we are up there to get some things for Henley and Macie. Hopefully once we get these we can really get moving on the nursery. 

Hope you have a great week!!

::Baby G Take 2:: Week 22

(no pic this week---working late and DST)

How far along? 22 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 12 lbs. Went to the doctor this morning and at first the number on the scale totally scared me but then I checked back to 22 weeks with Hens and I was up 11 so not terrible. Doc gave me the Thanksgiving lecture again ;-)
Maternity clothes? Yes! I love all things maternity pants

Stretch marks? Not yet Yay!!

Symptoms: Heartburn is terrible! I forgot how terrible it truly is! Slight back pain here and there, especially if I stand for a long period of time. I've been dizzy here and there if I stand up too fast too which I also had with Henley. Pretty much the same exact symptoms as Henley.
Sleep: Sleep is better this week. Henley's been doing much better with a night here or there waking up but overall I think we are on the up and up.

Best moment this week: Feeling Macie move SO much. Saturday night she was a little ninja, kicking so much!

Have you told family and friends: Yes everyone knows.

Miss anything: Nothing really that I can remember

Movement: Yes she has been so active lately. Today at the doctor while he was listening to my heartbeat she was kicking and we could hear it. I love it so much!

Food cravings: Cookies, still cookies

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing specific.

Have you started to show yet: Uh most definitely

Gender: GIRL! Macie Paige

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? It's pretty much out :-(  Showing through shirts in all it's glory. Ack!

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

Happy or Moody: Mostly happy especially with feeling Macie and a fun Halloween with Henley!

Looking forward to: Anniversary night with hubs. We are going to a local hotel for one night this weekend. It will be the first time I am away from Henley over night. I am a little nervous but know she will be fine. I'm most nervous for when she wakes up and we aren't there :-(
