28 + Weeks

only 2.5 months til we meet our little one.
i'll be 29 weeks in just a few days...

july, hurry up! i have one excited little girl that cannot wait to meet her new little brother. 
J talks to the baby multiple times a day. she tells him how she is going to feed him, and help out with whatever mama says...all while kissing mama's belly. my heart is beyond full with my little ones. i love all that being a mom has to offer. it's amazing. 

pregnancy feels brand new with baby #2. it comes with new experiences, new emotions, new everything. i like it though, because that makes it new and exciting no matter how many children you choose to have. besides my terrible limp due to an extremely painful left hip, and minor blood sugar issues, being pregnant with this baby has been easy breezy. i've gained more weight with this baby since the morning sickness didn't linger this time, and i feel him move constently. it's amazing. 

Mama stats:

i have no major cravings...still just consuming lots of fruit. my body releases tons of insulin after i consume any sugary foods, which then makes my blood sugars drop instead of rise...confusing, but this must be why i want fruit so often. it's a viscious cycle! 
Weight gained= 18 lbs.
Maternity clothes= kayla gave me some maternity pants to try and they are so comfy. i never imagined they'd be the greatest things on earth. so, it's either that or leggings. 
movement= still constent. he's a busy boy in there. 
sleep= i sleep fine once i'm asleep, but getting comfortable is an issue. i obviously sleep on my side, but becuase of this i've started getting some major charlie-horses in my sternum area...??? Assuming that is what it's super painful. 

We found out last week that baby has cord around his neck.  i know from work that this is common, and that there is nothing you can do, but when it's your own, it's much more frightening. My biggest fear was that he is still breach, and with cord around his neck, i just hope he will still be able to flip. No c-section for me dang it! Thanks to Jerry's amazing blessing, i know baby will be fine. that's all i care about. c-section or not. 

we do have most of the baby necesseties ready and waiting for his arrival. i have had so much fun picking out baby boy stuff. whoever says boy stuff isn't as fun is nuts. Having one of each is great. 

As of now, only 11 weeks to go...

between my preggy brain and mom and i being busy...we missed 6 month pics, so here's 6 and 7!!!
