BumpDate: 30 Weeks

How far along: 30 Weeks…10 weeks to Go! I can’t believe I’m even saying that! Seriously in the words of my friend Crystal “9 more Fridays, after today” I can’t even seem to comprehend that, haha

Feeling: Great!!

Although I have to admit I am huffing and puffing around the house…I guess having a watermelon sized belly does that too you. Ralph is totally being a good sport…I kinda hang on him a lot HaHaHa

Maternity Clothes: I did do a little shopping at The Gap and Old Navy this week in my town…I Think I was in need of a little change.
I Guess this is what 30 weeks and totally confused looks like HAHA

Sleep: Fabulous. I think I will sleep even better as the Crisp Fall air comes in and our new sheets from The Company Store arrive!!  

Best moment of the week? Coming home to a Beautiful Stroller and newborn carrier!!! My amazing “soon to be” Mother and Sister in law bought me the nicest Baby Shower Gift!! And had it delivered to the house…How Lucky am I, I don’t have to lug it home from my baby shower and I get to play with it around the house…Yes I push it around the house! So thoughtful...yes I was in tears! Love Love Love it!!!!!

Movement: Always, she is for sure my spicy girl. I can tell she will keep us busy.

Food cravings:  None. Does this exist? I have to tell you I LOVE food…but I have yet to have a “craving” where I needed something right then and there!
Although I Totally Love Cheese, Pancakes and syrup & Chips and Salsa...So I will call these my "Cravings" ;)

Food aversions: 

Belly button in or out? In.

Rings off or on?: On.

Goals for Next Week: Basement!! (yes this was my goal from last week) Never got to it apparently ;) There has been a lot of "relaxing" going on...

What I miss: Eggs over easy…I love going to breakfast but refuse to go because that is what I always want!

What I'm looking forward to: My ULTRASOUND on Friday. I love that Ralph takes the whole day off and we make it kind of an “Event” we haven’t seen her in what feels like forever.  
Milestones: I mailed in my hospital paper work! So its official…I’m good to go whenever poppy girl is ready…which hopefully won’t be for quite a few weeks ;)

Thoughts: BIG thoughts but need a week to digest this rather BIG decision and see if it is a possibility…will spill the beans soon enough!!

BumpDate: 29 Weeks

How far along: 29 Weeks…11 weeks to Go! (as of Friday) 
Feeling: Great!!

Maternity Clothes: Lots of Sundresses still…I may be going shopping as the season changes but we shall see.

Sleep: Still Great! It’s been cooler out and we have the air on so it’s always an icebox in our room. If it’s cold, I sleep great!  

Best moment of the week? Waking up in Ralph’s arms on Sunday! I LOVE the weekends. It’s so nice having nowhere to be and nothing to do. I went to the grocery store on Sunday and premade 12 slow cooker meals for the week! I was in the kitchen preparing for like three hours...but it was so Worth it!! Not having to cook ALL week has been Wonderful. I throw one of the freezer bags into the crockpot before I leave for work and 8 hours later we have Amazing dinners and the house smells wonderful!! Some of our favorites from this week…Chicken Broccoli Alfredo and Pulled BBQ Chicken. Tonight Hearty Beef Stew!

Movement: Yes

Food cravings:  None.

Food aversions: 

Belly button in or out? In.

Rings off or on?: On.

Goals for Next Week: Basement!!

What I miss: Still Hot Baths…Raw Cookie Dough!

What I'm looking forward to: Shannon’s Wedding (again late posting, never posted this on Friday we went Saturday and it was BEAUTIFUL) and the other 2 we have this month…It is certainly wedding season when you have one every single Saturday for a month straight!  My Dad and Annie coming to visit…for a Month! FALL, Decorating, Leaves changing, Apple Picking, Pumpkin Picking and of course the arrival of BABY Sophia! 

Milestones:  Nothing to crazy…Does pampering myself count. I finally got a foil and a haircut, waxed my eyebrows, got lashes, Mani & Pedi and a Facial!!

Thoughts: Just happiness and excitement. Throw in a Nervous first time mom jitter here and there. Here are Some Candid's of Mr. & Mrs. S

BumpDate: 28 Weeks

How far along: 28 Weeks…12 weeks to Go! (as of last yesterday) 
Feeling: Trying to find a better word than fabulous…How about Extraordinary. This pregnancy has been wonderful. I keep saying to Ralph, “Don’t you think I’ve been the easiest pregnant woman ever” Not that he knows how to answer this because how would he know that…hahaha But he always pleases me by answering YES! I can’t stop raving about it…I actually feel like I’m going to jinx it somehow but I can’t help it, I want ALL woman to know that the horror stories you hear very well might not apply to you.

I have to be honest I was scared after hearing/reading about some woman who have nightmare pregnancy’s…I for sure thought I would be one of them. Even in the beginning when I thought I had the flu (really it was surprise you’re having a baby/morning sickness)  but even that is now a distant memory. It was awful at the time and Zofran I think may have saved my life but that was it. Yes- It will be great when Sophia is finally here and I can get my old body back, but let me tell you 28 weeks in and this has been a breeze…Someone knock on wood! ;)

Maternity Clothes: Not this week. I have been lounging around in my shorts and t-shirts. Yes everything is a little smaller…but that’s the great thing about Victoria secret comfy shorts/Capri pants and gap t-shirts…they are stretchy!

Sleep: Like a baby! I have to say we have the most amazing bed in the world. It’s actually difficult to go on vacation because the one thing we always say we miss is our bed. We have a Tempurpedic and it is so wonderful! I sleep great every night!

Best moment of the week? Finding out on Sunday night that I would have another week of Vacation!!!

Movement:  Yes, at her usual times. Is it possible she is on a schedule haha BabySO is up and kicking at 6a.m., around 2ish and always like clockwork at 11pm. 

Food cravings:  None.

Food aversions: 

Belly button in or out? In.

Rings off or on?: On. I have had no “swelling” that the doctors said may happen in the summer heat. Thank God. I swear if it weren’t for this big belly and random kicks/dance moves at 6am, 2 and 11pm, I wouldn’t even know I was pregnant! Everything feels the same to me. It’s actually odd, I still feel like me!

Goals for Next Week: I really don’t have much on my “To Do” list; I seemed to have tackled it all. I guess my goal will be to “Pamper Myself” I bought a new book at Barnes and Noble called Spa Momma that I can’t wait to read/try! I will be sure to blog about some of my favorites from the book!

What I miss: Nothing, I’ve been one happy girl. I’m on my third week of paid vacation.

What I'm looking forward to: Finishing up these summer courses. With Sophia on the way, I really wanted to hammer down on the last few classes I needed for my teaching degree. Hard to believe that after this summer I will only have 3 classes left and practical. In total 46 classes…Career changes are never easy and I have to admit, I’m so proud that I pushed myself through 4 years of college. I enjoyed being an Aesthetician but my love for working with children has always been greater…and what better mommy job than a teacher. I love the idea of having the same schedule when Sophia starts 1st grade, and all summers and holidays off, yes please! Working and School has not been easy but Ralph has been Amazing!! I’m sure having the lights on at midnight while I slam on the keys to finish up research papers has not been fun, but he NEVER complained. He truly is the most amazing guy! 

Milestones:  Truth: I have done nothing this week, although I did cook every night. As far as “baby preparing” nothing has happened. I don’t really know what else to do now that her closet and nursery are done. I registered and filled out hospital paper work. Now I guess I just sit back and enjoy the next 12 weeks. At some point maybe during the “nesting” period I want to tackle the Basement!! Organize all of my labeled Rubbermaid bins and have Ralph build some sort of a shelving system for them.

Thoughts: My thoughts are pretty much all over the place, I still can’t believe how FAST the weeks are flying by. I’ve heard so many things from other momma’s like “prepare for a long 9 months.” I feel like I can’t even keep up with these weekly posts because it really is going by so fast! I have 12 WEEKS TO GO!!! 

**Oh and I noticed that I am more nervous than usual when Ralph goes out on his Bike, He left earlier today for a Bike Benefit and I have been anxiously awaiting his arrival home. Other than that, life is good!
