Pregnancy: 28 Weeks

How far along: 28 weeks 4 days today
Total weight gain/loss: I've gained 20 pounds. Weight = 144 pounds. Staying active!  
Maternity clothes? I still LOVING summer... I get to wear tanks and nike shorts often! 
Stretch marks? Nothing new to report.
Sleep: I wake two-three times a night. I have to pee or heartburn strikes. :( 
Best moment(s) this week: Sam and I finally got to go out for our anniversary last night! I have been looking forward to the night for a long time. We enjoyed Simply Fondue for dinner, and we people watched in downtown. It was magical! Just laughing with my husband and having one on one time was amazing! 
Miss Anything?  I am missing a few of the agility things about not being pregnant, but at the same time I am seriously loving this pregnancy! I really can't complain. 
Movement:  My belly is starting to not give him enough room, so the movements are really showing 'across my skin as he wiggles. You're able to tell the difference between arms and body at this point. 
Food cravings: I am craving sweets, but mostly cold things! I've gotten to swearing lately, so cold sweets like ice cream and snow cones are sounding great! 
Anything making you queasy or sick:  The heartburn does make me feel sick to my stomach sometimes. 
Labor Signs: I hear that the Braxton Hicks the second time around are more intense, so I am trying to prepare myself for that. Overall, though, I haven't had any labor signs! Stay away labor stay away. 
Symptoms: Symptoms deluxe! Heartburn. Restless Legs. Stretched Out Muscles (and officially pulled another muscle... this time in my pelvis!). Just feel like the third trimester hit me like a ton of bricks. 
Belly Button in or out? Super Shallow working towards flat land.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time:  I am hormonal but not necessarily moody. I just catch myself being a bit emotional, but it's not a cranky way. 
Weekly Wisdom: If you are worried about something, it is not crazy to overreact and call the doctor. It's better safe than sorry. 
Looking forward to: I can't wait to get out by the pool this week with the warmer weather.

Pregnancy: 26 Weeks - Red, White, & Blue

How far along: 26 weeks 1 days
Total weight gain/loss: I've still only gained about 14 pounds. Weight = 138 pounds. I have to be careful this holiday weekend not to overindulge in all the delightful treats! I can't wait to hit the gym again and feel like I being good. :)  
Maternity clothes? Still being more creative with my wardrobe... Maxi tube dress turned skirt with a stretchy target tank top.
Stretch marks? No new angry red lines to report. 
Sleep: Oh baby Bo... you have decided that Momma doesn't really need that much sleep! We wake up about once a night for our in utero dance party apparently. Goofy little critter.  
Best moment(s) this week: There are some awesome moments just living with our little Moose. He is so much fun at this age, but also, Bo is kicking more and more. When I cuddle or try to get Moose to sleepy, Bo tends to kick the crap out of him.. Happy brothers.
Miss Anything? This has been a really great week... but I do miss the days of sleeping in. For real sleeping in. The other day I accidentally slept until 7:30, and it was seriously the latest I have slept in MONTHS. We are pretty much up by 6:45 at the super duper latest (that's Bo and I). Sam and Moose are up by 6:15 everyday. 

Movement: Yeah! Kicking Moose is one of his favorites. Partying in the middle of the night is turning into a really good time. 
Food cravings: Nothing much to report.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw meat
Have you started to show yet: Ok, remember last week when I said "oh I feel so small" lalala... yeah well this week I feel like a friggin Blimpy! 

Labor Signs: No, stay away!!!!!!! 
Symptoms: WAY less muscle pain to report. Constant peeing has officially started. Constant thirst. Struggling to sleep again. And helllllo heartburn, it's been a while. I have juuuust started to have a bit of it, and I have a very strong feeling that it will be back full force soon enough. We bought Tums today, lol. 
Belly Button in or out? Getting more and more shallow 
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy momma lately
Weekly Wisdom: Do I have to be wise all the time? Sometimes can't I just be sleepy. 
Looking forward to: More beautiful sunny Summer days! 

We hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July!!!
