Two Months Old



Our little man is 2 months old {as of yesterday}... I will probably say this each month but I honestly can't believe how fast time is going by. Every day, every week & every month so far have just zoomed by. Caius is such a happy baby. He constantly smiles, talks and laughs when we interact with him. We love how he smiles so big when we talk to him. He knows his mommy & daddy for sure. He has his moments of crying and we can't do anything to make him happy, but it's honestly so rare. He's so easy going and we can figure out what he needs.

I try to get out & about with him at least every second day during the week. I can't wait for winter to be over and we can go for walks and do more things close to home.

It's so true when people say it feels like their baby has been around forever and can't imagine life without them, because that's exactly how we feel about our sweet baby boy.

Weight: 12.15lbs.

Hair: Dirty blonde, long & full. He barely lost any of it and it's so long in some spots !

Eyes: Blue, they haven't changed much either. We keep wondering if they will stay blue or not.

Clothes: He's outgrowing most of his 0-3 sleepers. He fits some of the long sleeve body suits & pants. We'll be changing into 3-6 verrry soon

Diapers: Still in size 1 but they fit quite tight around his yummy chubby thighs

Likes: His sucky, laying on the change pad, his playmat, to be talked to, TV {always have to turn him away}, his new Pottery Barn Kids Anywhere Chair, bath time & to sleep in his crib

Dislikes: Having his faced washed, clothes going over his head/face, being awake in his car seat {haven't mastered that yet}, mommy taking too long to get ready to nurse him & coming out of the tub

Eating & Sleeping: I'm nursing and try to pump a bottle each day {we haven't tried or needed to use formula yet}. During the week, Neil will feed him every 2nd night and I get to go to bed early and he helps during the night on the weekends. Caius still eating like a champ and is choking way less while I'm nursing him. He spits up much more now then he did before and loves to make a mess on everything.

Sleep wise, he wakes up around 9am each day & he takes a morning nap within an hour after waking up. He still likes to sleep the afternoon away with either long stretches or a few short naps. Evenings he's awake a little bit more but will still nap quite a bit. Bedtime isn't set or in a routine yet but on average it's between 11-11:30pm. As of last Friday night he has gone 5+ hours each night ! I feed him between 4-5:30am, maybe a 2nd time 2 hours after and then once he's awake for the day. It's crazy that all of a sudden he's going so long between feeds. I'm definitely enjoying it & hoping it'll last for awhile {don't want to get greedy or too excited now}.

He had his 2 month immunizations today and I had been stressing about them for weeks. He did so well ! I cried before he even had the first needle, he cried for a little bit after the 1st and 2nd shot {we've heard worse from him} and fell asleep on me for his morning nap. He slept majority of the day and has yet to be fussy. Hope we have a good night tonight and he stays happy for the next few days.

We have our first Christmas this Saturday with my moms family, then we'll be at my parents for Christmas Eve and Neil's parents for Christmas Day. Neil & I can't wait to wake up Christmas morning as a family of 3 and share this holiday with our special gift. A baby truly warms the house and makes the holidays extra special & enjoyable.

One Month Old



I can't even believe that our little man is a month old. It seriously feels like we just got home from the hospital yesterday. It scares me how fast time is flying by!

Here is an update on our big boy:

Weight: 11lbs... yeah, I am the milk maid around here and it definitely shows in his chunky cheeks

Hair: Still nice and full. The back is so long it looks like a little mullet.

Eyes: Still on the blue side. Neil swears there's a light ring that will grow into green/hazel {just like daddy}.

Clothes: Newborn clothes were retired within 2 weeks. He fits 0-3 in sleepers, long sleeve body suits and shirts. Pants are a bit big around the waist.

Diapers: Size 1's, but I think size 2's are right around the corner.

Likes: His soother, bath time once he's in and warm, mornings {he is so happy hanging out on a pillow once his diaper is changed and he's fed}, the squeaky noise from Sophie, being carried in his Solly Wrap, playing on his playmat, his Snugabunny chair & tummy time

Dislikes: Getting into his car seat & the tub, dirty diapers, when his soother falls out {he instantly wakes up if he's asleep}, being held laying down,

Eating & Sleeping: Eating wise he eats every hour & a half. Sometimes during the day it could be a longer stretch but it's pretty consistent with eating every hour & a half. During the night is the same, we've had a couple of nights where he's gone in a 2 or 3 hour stretch, but it's not very often. I'm not sure sure what to do to prolong the in between feed times. Hoping it'll start to get longer soon. Sleep wise he's pretty good with going back to sleep once he's eaten during the night. He sleeps the best in the afternoons going into the evenings. We really can't complain because he's a very easy, happy, no cry baby even though mommy is feeding him often.

We sure love our little boy, he brings so much joy to our lives !

Caius Edward - 1 Week Old



I can't believe 1 week ago we welcomed our little man into the world. 18 hours of labour, high blood pressure issues {had to be given BP medication & magnesium sulphate to prevent seizures or a stroke}, having an epidural {which had to be topped up 4 times because of patches not being covered}, being on a drip, getting sick numerous times and finally having a c-section is what I went through before he arrived.

Thankfully the c-section recovery part has been very good but health wise for me things have been a bit stressful. I have to take blood pressure medication twice a day and monitor it at home until it comes down. I was also sent to RUH ER on Wednesday for an ECG because the Health & Home nurse said my pulse was skipping when she took it. Very happy to say that it came back clear & the blood work done with it also was all good. I think we're over the bad hump & things should just get better from here on out, I hope.

Here's some info on our sweet baby boy:

Weight: As of Wednesday he was 8lbs13oz. He dropped to 8lb3oz. in the hospital and by Monday he was 8lbs7oz. I'm sure he's gained even more as of now

Hair: He has a full head of nice dirty blonde hair. I love giving him a combing swoosh look while he's nursing.

Eyes: Are blue and big. Love when he's awake and just staring at everything. It's kind of funny that he has 2 long eye lashes on 1 eye and 3-4 on the other. Otherwise it looks like he doesn't have any.

Clothes: Newborn clothes fit but are pretty tight. He fits 0-3 months much better. Not surprising, he's a big boy. Some clothes I have for him I won't be able to use because they are way too small.

Diapers: As of today I think we've graduated from newborn to size 1. Newborn fits nice around his belly but cuts into his legs that red rings are left.

Likes: Sleeping & eating {obviously}, getting kisses from mommy & daddy, tummy time. He loves to just lay in bed on a pillow in the mornings and hang out. Doesn't fuss or make a peep, just lays there checking everything out. He also doesn't mind bath time {he had his 3rd bath today and didn't scream so I'll consider this a like} and going for walks.

Dislikes: Being naked and getting his diaper changed. That is when he uses his vocals the most ! He doesn't take long too settle down. And if it takes too long from being changed to getting fed, he gets mad. He's not a fan of being put into his car seat but settles quickly once daddy is done swinging him back & forth.

Eating & Sleeping: Breastfeeding has been going really well. He eats like a champ {his chubby cheeks are proof of this}. He's pretty consistent during the day eating every 3 hours. He'll sleep for a few hours and be ready to eat right away when he wakes up. During the night he's sleeping for about 2 hours, eats and is awake for an hour or an hour & a half and then goes back to sleep. He thankfully doesn't fuss for no reason so even though he's awake for awhile during the night, it's tolerable.

We love our sweet little man and still can't believe he's ours. He's a really good baby and we feel very lucky to have him.

Maybe one day soon when I have some time I'll write his labour & delivery story. He's starting to wake up from a nap meaning I gotta go.

39 Weeks

I am 39 weeks and 1 day, baby Nagy is due on Monday October 20th and I am soo ready for he or she to make their debut. I am physically unable to do so much, both my hands have really bad carpal tunnel during the night & for most of the mornings and honestly none of my clothes fit. I'm at that point of just wanting to be done.

I woke up this morning with a headache that I had since I went to bed last night with tears in my eyes thinking "this baby isn't going to come anytime soon, we're going to be overdue, Neil will waste his week of holidays spending time in the hospital waiting for baby to show up & they're not going to". It was just one of those mornings that I felt defeated and upset as soon as I woke up.

I went to my prenatal appointment thinking the doctor isn't going to tell me anything I want to hear, she's not going to induce me if I ask or suggest it & we're going to end up having a Halloween baby which we so don't want. I was just there on Thursday and I was a fingertip dilated with no effacement or any other signs that baby would be arriving anytime soon.

This morning, I am close to 3cm dilated, 50% effaced and I had my membranes stripped. I was totally shocked. My OB is confident that she won't have to induce me and hopefully will not be seeing me next week for another prenatal visit. Totally didn't expect that news and I left the office with some hope that baby could be making an appearance very soon ! I went to meet up with Neil for lunch and told him the good news. We both spent the day distracted and thinking "holy crap, the baby really could be here some time this week *fingers crossed*". We're not trying to get over excited because we don't want to get our hopes up, but it's an exciting feeling knowing that we are getting close to the finish line.

I hope my next post will be about our new baby. Keep your fingers crossed for us that baby Nagy arrives before Monday !

Pregnancy Thoughts

I am 37 weeks as of yesterday and I have a few things on my mind at this stage of my pregnancy..

{1} Everything I do or try to do right now is the hardest. Getting in and out of bed, rolling over in bed from one side to the other, putting on socks, underwear or leggings, carrying the laundry from downstairs to upstairs, washing my face at the sink.. the list goes on for what should be easy and so isn't at this point.

{2} Swollen feet & ankles are no joke and don't make a woman feel good at all. Boots, UGGs, sandals & slippers don't properly fit at all. It's getting cooler out and I feel like wearing flip flops outside makes me look ridiculous but what other choice do I have? Seeing my ankles overflow while wearing Sanuks almost brought me to tears the other day. Saturday I was going to meet my mom at a work event of hers, and I had a mini breakdown trying to get ready and look nice. I wanted to wear boots with leggings and do you think I could get my boots on and have them be comfortable ? I sat on the couch waiting to leave & trying not to cry. I just want normal feet & calves again

{3} Baby hasn't dropped yet {to me anyways} which means s{he} are nicely sitting right in my ribs & lungs. I swear while I was driving on Saturday that I was going to lose oxygen because they were sitting soo high up ! Super uncomfortable

{4} This whole "every time I eat I end up in the bathroom" thing has gotten really old. I know some women experience constipation during the end of pregnancy.. but as of lately, nothing stays in and it's getting a little raw down there ! Definitely didn't read or hear about during the need to know the stages of pregnancy. For those reading and didn't know this, now you do. Side note: it completely sucks.

{5} and finally, this is my last week of work. This Friday I will be stepping away from work for a year and even though I know it's happening, it just doesn't feel real. I'm excited to be able to be at home waiting for baby. I just hope I don't get stir crazy and I realllly hope s{he} show up on time !

36 Weeks

 I've been lacking in the blogging department as of lately, due to a couple of reasons.

{1} I had been busy training a new woman to take over my position as of September 8th. Every week since then has been completely exhausting. Unfortunately this morning was her last day and now we have no one lined up to take over once I'm done next Friday. I'm not worried or panicked as I was while she was here.. it's for the best and knowing that internally people will be taking over my position makes me feel much better and confident to be walking away for a year

{2} things haven't been all that exciting life wise right now. I'm exhausted when I get home at the end of the day, try to do some things around the house and then I try to just hang out for the evening. Our weekends have been busy too so I just haven't found the time to update


 {35 weeks taken by Little Black Dress Photography}

Here's my 36 week update:

How Far Along: 36w3d
Baby is the Size of a: Large Cantaloupe. We were told at our last ultrasound {2 weeks ago} that baby's weight was roughly 6lbs 4oz give or take 1lb. My OB-GYN confirmed the next morning that we are on the "larger side" with baby
Feeling: Heavy, tired, frustrated that it's so hard to move certain ways to do things. Pressure underneath my belly can be pretty uncomfortable. I wouldn't say I'm done and over being pregnant, but I'm ready for October 20th
Weight Gain: 35lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Are barely fitting...
Belly Button In or Out: Has pretty much disappeared. There's a small opening but not much. Kind of weird not having a defined belly button anymore
Sleep: Is not comfortable at all. I get up at least twice during the night to use the bathroom..
Best Moment This Week: Getting a pedicure last night w/ my good friend Krystal
Worst Moment This Week: Training at work & super swollen feet. They look and feel awful !
Movement: Still very active at night. I feel a really hard spot on my left side lots, either a bum or something pushing on my belly. It's definitely more of a pushing/stretching feeling than kicks or punches
Looking Forward To: Getting home and putting my feet up... my right foot looks horrific right now
Nursery Progress: Is basically done and on hold up he/she arrives. I'm going to print off some of our maternity pictures and hang them in the reading corner sometime this week/weekend
Cravings: Apples as a snack in the evening and chocolate milk during the night

33 Weeks

I had my 33 week appointment this morning. I went from going every 4 weeks then to 3. I go back in 2 weeks and then I'll be going once a week until baby comes. It's crazy I'll already be at that point in 3 weeks ! I figured I might as well update each week {or every 2nd week} I have an appointment.

My OB confirmed this morning that I have a minor abdominal tear {or to use the term Diastasis Recti}. It doesn't cause any harm to the baby and shouldn't cause any issues for delivery, it's just something I need to work on and strengthen after baby is here and once I've recovered from delivery. Kind of sucks knowing the belly bulge I have isn't baby but thankful it's not a big concern or harmful.

How Far Along: 33w3d
Baby is the Size of a: Honeydew {19inch, 4.5lbs}. We have an ultrasound next Tuesday to see exactly where baby is at right now
Feeling: Heavy, sore, frustrated and tired. I sound like a total bummer.
Weight Gain: 35lbs
Maternity Clothes: Had to buy some new t-shirts from Thyme maternity recently. Have to say, they're my favourite.
Stretch Marks: My low belly has a few
Belly Button In or Out: In
Sleep: I wake up about twice a night to use the washroom and still get up every time I try to roll/shift over. Still love my Bumpnest pillow, but my hips & lower back hurt so much during the night.
Best Moment This Week: Will be going to Earls tonight for supper to celebrate 7 years together. Can't wait for fettuccine alfredo ! Also, Neil installed the car seat base & mirror on Monday. It makes me feel better knowing if and when baby decides to show up, all we have to do is click the car seat in & we're good to go.
Worst Moment This Week: Crying on Monday night because of how uncomfortable I am and how frustrating it is that I want to stay active and do things but I suffer from it later. I can barely get up if I lay down and my lower back hurts so much. I'm going to the chiro and for prenatal massages but it just isn't helping.
Movement: Still lots. Pushing more now than little kicks and punches. Nighttime is still baby's favourite time to be active.
Looking Forward To: September 16th, we're having maternity photos taken by Little Black Dress Photography
Nursery Progress: We haven't done much in a while. Waiting for the little mr. or miss to show up to finish decorating.
Cravings: Nothing new. I actually am not eating as much as I did in the 2nd trimester. I feel full very fast now when I eat a meal or snack.

What I've Been Up To

This may not be the most exciting post for you who is reading this.. but I want to look back a year from now and remember all the things that have been going on.

Since May we have been at the lake for 13 out of the 18 weekends until now. That's crazy. It's definitely been a good summer being out there so much, but towards the end of lake season I get a little excited knowing it's coming to an end. And then once the snow shows up, I wish it was lake season again. Can never win.

This month has been full with slo pitch games on Wednesdays, prenatal chiropractor & massage appointments and trying to relax/take it easy when there's nothing going on. As baby is getting bigger, things are hurting more and more.

We went to RUH to watch a slide tour of where we're going to be and the process of everything from the start of labor to after delivery.

We got to meet our friends new baby girl.

I got to catch up and visit with family and friends during my week off. I feel like I'm never available during the summer because we're always gone or busy during the week.

September is here on Monday and to me that means summer is over. I can't believe how fast this summer went but yet I'm excited because we are that much closer to meeting baby. And I don't mind the fall, cool weather because I get to dress cozy. Now snow... if you decide to show up in March, that's fine by me. #wishes

August 24, 2014

Back to Reality {August Edition}

It's Sunday and I never blog on Sunday. But I'm sitting downstairs beside Neil watching golf {he is totally going to be a dad soon} and decided I might as well do a catch up post.

Last week was the last stretch of holidays I have before I finish work in October. We had booked the time off before we found out we were pregnant. Neil cancelled his because he wants a week off once baby is here and I was back and forth about taking them just for myself, but I'm sure glad I did.

I did a lot of cleaning each day. I tried to get a project done and then take it easy. I washed our floors, organized the back closet, put shelf liners in our cupboard drawers, vacuumed our bedroom, dusted, I washed the car and Neil installed new light fixtures.

I also got to visit with my cousin Bailey, Krystal & her kiddos, my aunt Lisa and new baby cousin Olivia and catch up with some old dance friends Kaylee, Jenna, Olivia & Ana. I can't remember visiting with that many people in a week ! It was so nice to catch up with everyone and have no pressure of "I have things to do". I even got to have lunch with Neil twice ! It was a much needed week of get things done that I wanted to, have time to visit with everyone and take it easy before baby comes.

So tomorrow I go back to work and countdown the days until maternity leave starts. It's going to come so, so fast.

Looking forward to getting back to the lake for the long weekend ! The weather better smarten up..

Pregnancy Thoughts

{1} Being almost 32 weeks is uncomfortable and painful. Laying in bed trying to sleep, getting up to use the bathroom, getting up to move in general, walking for "too long", sitting in a chair or laying on the couch is just generally uncomfortable. I would love to sleep at night without waking up wanting to cry when I move side to side. Round ligament groin pain is not my friend.

{2} Time is slowing down right now. I know we're in the last stretch and it actually will go by fast but it's not coming as fast as I'd like right now. I've got to snuggle with my new cousin {born August 1st} and friends of ours just had a baby girl last night. I want to be next. Holding our sweet newborn and time is slowing down #unfair.

{3} Not knowing what you're having is the best surprise.. but it also makes shopping for sleepers difficult. I've been good with buying everything else gender neutral no problem. Our baby will look a little depressed with how much grey we have. I cannot wait to buy colourful outfits & sleepers.

{4} My belly is big. My boobs are big. and I feel big. End of that rant.

{5} and finally, even though I'm not feeling great right now, every time I feel baby kick, punch, roll or move it is seriously the best feeling ever. I keep imagining who is in there, how big there are and what his/her's hands or feet look like. I stop for the moment and just feel {s}he wiggle and twist and think that in 8 weeks & 3 days that baby will be in my arms & all of this un-fun stuff won't matter.

August 13, 2014

30 Weeks

Well.. I'm officially in the 3rd trimester {7.5 months right now} & it's crazy to think that in 10 weeks {or sooner, who knows} we'll be holding our sweet baby ! I am so, so excited and ready to meet baby.

We went to RUH last Tuesday for a hospital tour slide presentation. There were a lot of preggos there. It was nice to know where we'll be each step during labour & delivery. The anesthesiologist also gave us great information about the epidural/pain medications process. Neil & I both said to each other that things are getting really real after we attended the presentation.

{bumpin'} 
How Far Along: 30w3d
Baby is the Size of a: Cucumber or Butternut Squash {around 17in. & 3.1bs.}
Symptoms: Lower back pain, hip pain that's almost in & around my groin on the right side only. I've gone to the chiro and for massages and it helps but then a couple days later I'm hurting again. Just comes with the territory.
Weight Gain: 30lbs
Maternity Clothes: I need to buy just a few new things. I think everyone at work is sick of seeing me in the same tops & skirts each week
Stretch Marks: I found some on my belly on Sunday night... such a bummer. I am going to lather on the coconut oil each night now !
Belly Button In or Out: Still in
Sleep: Is uncomfortable and I get up to use the bathroom once or twice
Movement: Lots :)) Baby is active first thing in the morning, while I'm sitting at my desk in the morning s{he} is usually having a kicking party and when I lay in bed at night. Neil got to feel baby wiggling like crazy last week. Love that feeling !
Queasy or Sick: Thankfully no
Looking Forward To: Having next week off {which includes deep cleaning the house, getting a pedicure, catching up with Bailey & Krystal, and having a Ukrainian dance girls reunion} & my birthday
Nursery Progress: It's pretty much complete, just need to add a few things here & there. The hubs & I {+ Bella & Izzie} love it !
Cravings: Vanilla ice cream w/ chocolate chips & walnuts. I'm still going hard on the fruit loops too and watermelon is a must as well
Recently Purchased: Johnson's Bedtime Bath Essentials, Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag {in chevron} and these cute noonie {pacifier, sucky, whatever you want to call it} clips from Etsy !


I also ordered a Ju-Ju-Be Be Quick Wrislet that I'm going to put in our diaper bag. I'll keep diapers, cream, and wipes in this bag so it's quick and easy to grab if I don't want to haul the whole diaper bag and keep everything organized and together. All the reviews say really good things about it.


On Saturday I picked up some goodies at Carter's..

 

 {beanies, mom bought us these}


 {and Neil chose this sleeper just to have some actual pink in case we need it}

What I'm Loving Wednesdays



I'm loving...

... this sweater from Bootlegger. It is so soft, comfy & flattering + I got it on sale, bonus !

... Essie Go Ginza. My favourite, favourite colour. It's been on my toes for months. Pictures don't do justice. It's the perfect shade of lilac + it gives you colour without being too much {PS. those aren't my fingers, I wish}


... that the long weekend had hot, beautiful weather ! I was able to spend 2 afternoons at the beach & got a lovely tan #happyhappy

... that it's a 4 day work week {thank you long weekend Monday}

... that I get to sleep in our bed this weekend ! We're taking a break from the lake & staying home. I'm going to try to sleep in and I plan on buying some more baby items {Neil's going to Golf Town to get goodies so it's only fair I get to buy baby things}

& finally ... that I get to meet my new baby cousin Olivia on Saturday !

Happy Friday


I haven't done a Happy Friday post in forever !

I'm keeping it short & sweet today. We have been so busy lately that I just haven't had the time or the effort to post. And the things we have been busy with aren't that exciting, just regular life stuff.

A few good things to mention today

{1} It's Friday of the long weekend which means we are off to the lake tonight until Monday. The weather better be nice.... or else there's going to be trouble.

{2} I got a prenatal massage last night and it was heaven. Unfortunately I'm still sore and slept bad but I did feel amazing for 1 hour last night

{3} I'm so excited to receive my Skip Hop Duo Signature diaper bag ! {I posted about it on Instagram}

{4} and a new babe entered the world this morning ! it makes me extra excited for us to be next and I wish October would come sooner !

Happy Friday, enjoy the weekend !

What I'm Loving Wednesdays {Etsy Edition}



I thought about doing a fun post for What I'm Loving Wednesdays by showing you some of my favourites from Etsy !

This monogrammed weekender bag. Love the print & style of the bag, plus anything personalized is a plus.

This bold iPhone case is so fun
 We'll have a new baby at Christmas this year so of course I need to find a cute ornament for him or her


Our 1 year wedding anniversary was in May but I think this diamond infinity ring and burlap custom art would be the perfect gift !

{ 1 2 3 }
 I love to girly up my desk at work by simply having a fun pattern mouse pad. Since I'll be going on maternity leave in 50 some days {crazy !} I won't be ordering any until I get back but I will be ordering one of these for sure 

{ 1 2 3 4 }
 If we have a little man, I HAVE to order all of these items. I can so see "him" wearing the striped cardigan onesie at Christmas ! And the kitten onesie ? How perfect for us:))

 { 1 2 3 }
If we have a little lady, I think the lace onesie is a must have.

These custom blankets are so cute !

{ 1 2 3 4 }
I'm not big into jewelry, everything I wear is pretty simple & I don't change it up. I ordered the 2 disc charms {#1} and I wear this necklace EVERYDAY ! It has become my favourite piece of jewelry {next to my wedding set}. Mine has T on the large disc and N on the small disc. I'm also obsessed with Rose Gold and have been wanting those studs for a while now.

Hope you liked my favourites ! Shop Etsy whenever you need something unique or customized. I've ordered plenty of items from Etsy and have never had an issue !

{PS. this is not a sponsored post, just felt like something fun & new for Wednesday}
{PSS. this is my 100th post !}

26 Weeks




How Far Along: 26w5d
Baby is the Size of a: Eggplant {2lbs.}
Symptoms: Sore back, sore body & out of breath easily
Weight Gain: 26lbs {I'm blaming my boobs}
Maternity Clothes: Are a necessity. period. I went from having 0 maxi skirts to now having 3
Stretch Marks: None that are new
Belly Button In or Out: In
Sleep: Kind of sucks. I get super uncomfortable tossing & turning most of the night & I am really sore when I get out of bed for the day. I also have to get up to use the bathroom.
Best Moment This Week: Seeing our sweet poppyseed in 3D/4D last Saturday. I can't describe what the feeling was actually seeing our sweet babes face other then simply stating there were tears & lots of smiles from me. Also, meeting my new OBGYN this morning. Let's just say all of my future appointments are going to go a lot better then the past ones have been with my previous doctor.
Worst Moment This Week: The tailbone pain is back. Damn Rider game seats..
Movement: Week 24 was finally the week that I could feel baby ! I have been waiting to feel anything and was nervous that because of my anterior placenta that it would be really late in the pregnancy before I felt anything. He/she are pretty active throughout the day, first thing in the morning when I lay in bed & a little at night. This past week baby was moving so much that my stomach was popping ! It gets me pretty excited to feel/see movement
Looking Forward To: Going to the lake this weekend
Nursery Progress: Picture frames are hung in the reading/rocking corner and above the change pad. I made some DIY art for the frames above the change station as well. I put up gold circle decals on the crib wall. The pattern is supposed to look like confetti falling. I'll probably post full, good pictures of the nursery once it's done. I've washed all of the outfits and blankets we have. The closet is now full on baby instead of having a lot of my random stuff in it. Still need to re-do the rocking chair, find Chevron curtains and get a rocking chair pad. Also want to order this shelving unit from Ikea:


Cravings: Chocolate, ice cream, fruit loops & watermelon. Basically everything that is not really good for you
Recently Purchased: Surprisingly I don't think I've bought anything new to share !
