Can you say "Holy Huge Belly?!"  Life has been getting crazy around here!  I'm currently 36 weeks while writing this 32 week update.  Enjoy!

Any Cravings? Nutella and banana's on EVERYTHING!!  Also, I can't get enough peanut butter banana sandwiches.  Mmmm.  Clearly my body is seeking out potassium.  Luckily I don't mind because I love bananas.  AND I haven't had any bad leg cramps (as of yet).  Knock on wood, would ya?  Those were brutal during my last pregnancy.  I still remember one like it was yesterday.  What is this crap about women forgetting what pregnancy and child birth is like?  That's a lie!  I remember almost everything about last time like it just happened. 

Weight Gain?  Up 30lbs.  I'm starting to see some chub accumulate but I really feel like most of the weight this time around is mainly baby, fluids, boobs, etc...I honestly feel bigger this time around but  it feels like its all belly and less bootie.

Maternity Clothes?  They're starting to get snug.  I have some medium maternity shorts that I think I'm going to have to say goodbye to in the next couple of weeks and just say hello to my large ones. 

Movement? Lots of wiggles, jiggles and full on karate kicks! 

How are you feeling? Still feeling good overall.  I'm starting to get some discomfort in my lower abdomen but nothing too bad.  I rest when I feel it coming on and it seems to dissipate. 

Stretch marks? Oh so many stretch marks.  And they're starting to itch.  Fun times!

Best moment of the week? We've had a great and eventful couple of weeks around here.  We've transitioned Kensie out of her crib and into her big girl room and big girl bed.  I truly thought it was going to be a train wreck but it has gone so much better than I expected.  We put a child lock on her door thinking we would need it to keep her in her room, but she doesn't even try to come out.  She talks daily about her BIG bed and is now even referring to her old room as the baby's room.  About a week after she was settled into her new room we decided it was time to try and potty train.  Again, it went SO much better than either one of us expected it to.  We stayed home for two days and just let her run around in panties.  The first day she had a few accidents.  The second day she started to get it, and by day three we were pretty much accident free.  Since then, she hasn't had any accidents in over two weeks!  She still wears a diaper during nap time and bed time but she is officially "day trained".  I think night training is still a ways off but I'm so happy with her progress!

Sleep? Sleep has been awesome!  I get up a million times a night to pee but other than that, I'm sleeping like a rock.  I love that we have an adjustable bed.  The bed itself isn't very comfortable, but the adjustable feature makes sleeping while pregnant so much more enjoyable!

Miss anything?  A nice cold margarita!

Belly button in or out? What belly button?  It looks like some sort of weird hernia or something.

Wedding rings on or off?  On! Which is so strange that they still fit.  Especially with the heat, I fully expected to have taken them off weeks ago. 

Current mood? Very happy, content, and proud! 

Here's a few pics of the last four weeks.....


  1. Your belly button comment made me laugh, because mine is the same! Plus it hurts when she kicks where my belly button used to be, is yours the same?

    1. It's a little sensitive from the outside but not the inside. How strange that yours hurts when she kicks. That's no fun! Although I've noticed many strange things this time around. I have a few muscles that kill me when she kicks them.
