Bumpdate Week 31!

How far along? 31 weeks! 

Weight Gain: 6 pounds

Sleep? Still waking up to pee about once or twice a night. 

Challenges this week: not wanting to go into the hospital for clinicals. So close to being done though! 

Best moment this week: I won two giveaways on instagram! 4 bandana bibs, a saranoni receiving blanket (my absolute favorite blankets in the world), a skip hop light and sound owl, a nice pacifier, and a skip hop outfit! 

Weird pregnancy moment: I'm not fitting into a lot of my scrub tops anymore. 

Movement: he moves a lot but especially after I drink or eat. 

Food cravings: I havent had too much of an appetite for the last week. 

Anything making you queasy? I'm getting morning sickness again and I can't eat as much as I have been the last two months or else I feel sick for the rest of the day :(

Symptoms: varicose veins.... 

What are you looking forward to? Going up to Ogden with Jake to get his new glasses and I'm getting my eyelashes done... I love getting my lashes done :)

Bumpdate Week 30!

How far along? 30 weeks! :) wahooo!

Weight Gain: 6 pounds

Sleep? Getting a little more uncomfortable during nights. But not bad.

Challenges this week: Feeling a little melancholy and always wanting to snack.

Best moment this week: Making hobo dinners with Jake for my birthday. We went up to Lake Oowah again (it feels so nice up there) and celebrated my birthday. We had no bake cherry cheesecake and gelato from the Brewery. Also, we got a pottery barn crib and rocking chair from Kim... I helped Jake set it up last night, it's feeling more real now!

Weird pregnancy moment: I can't go a few days without showering anymore...Haha.

Movement: I'm pretty sure he has been practicing jumping Jack's the last week, he'll have some good leg muscles when he arrives.

Food cravings: mint chocolate chip ice cream :)

Anything making you queasy? Nothing that comes to mind, but I've been feeling a little nauseous this week.

Symptoms: more Braxton hicks contractions, about once or twice a day.

What are you looking forward to? I'm starting shakeology this week and adding some more exercises to my routine. Usually I've been going on walks for about 40 minutes, but I started this little work out group with Noelle Briggs and I'll be doing a little bit more that will help with labor and delivery.

3D Ultrasound

We can't wait to meet him!

Bumpdate Week 29

How far along? 29 weeks! :)

Weight Gain: 4 pounds

Sleep? I have been falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow lately. I'm still waking up once in the middle of the night thinking I might die if I don't pee.

Challenges this week: Nothing comes to mind.

Best moment this week: Yesterday was our 1st anniversary! After church we packed a picnic and Jake drove us to a surprise location. We drove the La Sal Loop to Lake Oowah, by far my new favorite spot! It was more than 20 degrees cooler than Moab and I had the best company :) We read love letters--that we prepared for each other beforehand-- reflecting on our last year together. Our cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing at the memories shared... And of course I teared up from the sweet things he had written. It was the perfect day.

Weird pregnancy moment: This is more of an exciting moment than a weird one. Strangers are noticing that I'm pregnant now (it actually makes me happy to know that I LOOK pregnant now) and they'll ask me when I'm due and congratulate me.

Movement: Baby Z is still my little wiggle worm. I love feeling him move, but I love when Jake can feel him move even more! It still doesn't feel real that we're having a baby! I'm assuming it won't feel "real" until I'm actually in labor.

Food cravings: A slice of grandma sycamore bread with butter and Mom's canned peach jam (too good for words).

Anything making you queasy? I've been pretty good with foods and smells this week.

Symptoms: I started taking magnesium glycinate again this past week and that's helped dramatically with leg cramps and also Braxton hicks contractions when I'm active.

What are you looking forward to? My birthday this weekend!! I want to grill some hamburgers or kabobs at Lake Oowah with Jake and maybe some Dutch oven peach cobbler! The Cluffs have a peach tree in their yard and let us pick as many as we like... It's been peach heaven the last week :)
