New Stuff!

I went to a couple of garage sales today!  We got a crib for at Grandma Deb’s house, a bunch of toys and some baby girl things.  When we got home, we had a couple of packages waiting for us.  Garrett got a new booster seat, so the baby sister can use the high chair.  He wanted to test it out, first, and make sure it was comfy.

The baby sister got a pink camouflage snow suit for $5!

Baby Sister, pregnancy update: 25 weeks.

How far along:  25 weeks, today!

How big is baby:  Eggplant, now.

Total weight gain:  About 20 lbs.

Maternity clothes:  Yes.

Sleep:  Not the greatest.  I know it’s only going to get worse so, I’m trying to savor whatever sleep I can get now.  I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night and having a hard time going back to sleep.  Very frustrating.

Best moment of the week:  We went swimming again on Saturday!  I ordered a sewing pattern to make a maternity dress.  My mom is going to help me with it this weekend, so I’m looking forward to that.

Food cravings:  Protein!  I always try to eat some protein with all of my meals and snacks but I always crave it when I’m pregnant.  The baby must being growing a lot lately because I feel like I’m starving within two hours of eating!!

Food aversions:  Still no real aversions.

Symptoms:  Definitely more Braxton Hicks contractions, back pain, tired.

Movement:  She doesn’t seem to be as active as I remember Garrett being, she’ll get crazy for a little while but then calm down.  I saw my belly move on the outside for the first time (this pregnancy) last weekend.  It was so awesome!  I’m sure she’s made my belly move before but this was the first time, I actually sat and watched, so cool!!  Mike still isn’t able to feel a lot of movement.

Gender:   Baby Girl!

What I’m looking forward to:  Only 2 weeks left in the 2nd trimester!!

What I miss:  Nothing really, I’m loving pregnancy right now!

Next appt:  July 6th.


We took Garrett fishing for the first time, today.  We didn’t catch any fish, and Garrett was more interested in carrying the worms around and playing in the water than anything else, but we had a good time.

Garrett’s first doughnut.

Baby Sister update 24 weeks.

How far along:  24 weeks, viability!  Woo HOO!!

How big is baby:  Still papaya.

Total weight gain:  20ish lbs.  I did loose 2 lbs though! ; )

Maternity clothes:  Of course.

Sleep:  Garrett has been sleeping a little better.  I still get up to use the bathroom really frequently, and am often still tired by noon.

Best moment of the week:  She wasn’t moving a lot last week, so when she finally started moving again, it was great!

Food cravings:  Smoothies and eggs.

Food aversions:  Nothing really.

Symptoms:  Braxton Hicks and if I start doing too much I get really crampy.

Movement:  Not as much.  She’s been sleeping a lot more, I think.  Must be busy growing.

Gender:   Baby Girl!

What I’m looking forward to:  3rd trimester, October when I get to see her again.  I’m trying to enjoy this time as much as I can, though.

What I miss:  Sleeping better, and feeling rested.

Next appt:  July 6th.
