18 Days Old

Image
Age: 18 days old Weight & Height: At my 2 week appointment I was 21.5 inches long and 8 lbs. 9 oz.  Since it has been 4 days since that appointment, I have been eating like a champ and hopefully gaining more weight! Things I enjoy: Being held and sleeping during the day. I also love nursing with mommy and want to do it all the time! Can't wait for the weather to get better so we can take some more walks. Skills I've mastered: Crying when I want something, because mommy and daddy both pick me up right away anytime I get upset. Tough Times: Nights are tough.  True we've had some good ones, but I'm not going down or staying down for mommy a lot of the time.  We're all thinking positive though and know it won't last forever. Exciting Events: I've had lots of visitors.  All my Aunts and Uncles have now met me except Uncle Scott, but we are waiting patiently for the introduction.  I've also met all my cousins except for Savannah.  Hopefully that will happen so…

Emma Jean Moher

So, I'm back :)  Probably not as back as I want to be and won't be posting as often for a while, but wanted to share some pics of the babe.

Emma Jean Moher was born at 8:44am on Friday morning, April 12th, 2013. We got induced on Thursday night and ended up having a c-section the next morning.  Baby and mommy didn't like the pitocin too much. Baby's heart rate when pretty low and mommy's blood pressure dropped to about 80/50 at one point.

The doctors were AMAZING! from start to finish I don't know how I could have done it without as much support as I got.

Grammy Smith was there when baby was born and daddy was first to hold her.

I'll be sharing more later, but here are a few pics....

No News

Is no news really always good news?

Well, no changes, nothing, nada, nilch!

Not in the mood to blog about it either!

38 Weeks

How far along? 38 Weeks and 2 days

Total weight gain: 46 lbs. - I'll get remeasured at my appointment this afternoon

Maternity clothes? Yes

Stretch marks? I'll just answer that with a YES - I'll add more on that after the update.

Sleep: Awful, but with a humidifier it's bearable

Miss Anything? Wine, beer, Sleeping on my back/stomach, running

Movement: Lots

Food cravings: It's kind of funny, if I mention a food I all of the sudden crave it. We were leaving church on Sunday and I said BLT, then all I wanted was a BLT.  So DH and I went to the store, got the stuff, and they were DELISH!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not these days (knock on wood)

Gender: Girl

Labor Signs: None

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, swollen feet, frequent peeing, PUPPPs

Belly Button in or out? Popping out a tiny bit

Wedding rings on or off? Off, it's just more comfortable

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy Today!

Looking forward to: Holding my baby girl and telling her how much I love her in person.

Patience is not a virtue I possess

Just got back from my 37 weeks appointment.

First I'd like to say I saw a new doctor today and I hated him. :)  Just all business.

Anyway, baby is still high and still not dilated.  I might as well get used to the fact she probably won't be here until the 28th - 1 week AFTER my original due date.

So no more "only teens left".  I HAVE 24 DAYS LEFT! 24 days may not seem like a lot, but I question my ability to make it.


Random Things I Love

These days the things I love are definitely different from the things I used to love.

Here are some of my favorite things that keep me "busy" these days and things I just enjoy.

My new favorite youtube channel - The SACCONEJOLYsMy favorite wedding photographer/website (you never become unobsessed with weddings) - Leeann MarieGame of ThronesSmoothies! - Darn you McDonalds for having your smoothie machine broken the last 2 times I tried to get one at your establishment!  1 more strike and you're out.My favorite Blog - The Great Adventures of Big G, Middle G, and Little G - not only do I read her blog, but I also read most of the blogs she follows :)Animoto - It speaks for itselfDaydreaming about Emma (it does take up about 80% of every day)GiftcardRescue - We are planning on buying some patio furniture (which isn't cheap) and can always find 20% gift cards.  I've bought 5 already, all 20% off, to Pier 1, where Chris and I picked out a set we love.  2 have already co…

We are Officially in the Teens!!!!!!!!!!!

Only 19 days until my original due date!!!!  Which means I better have this baby sooner than 19 days from now!

When I got into work this morning I took my entire desk area and moved it into the office next to me.  I'm going to need some privacy when I come back to work for when I pump, so it was a necessary evil at some point, but I just really got motivated to do it.  Could this be nesting?

Nesting at work? Why does that depress me? hahaha.

DH graciously vacuumed the entire house yesterday (all 3 floors) so now would be a perfect time for her arrival. We even decided to eat our first Let's Dish meal, we are ready - BOTH OF US!

Anyway,  this stupid rash is awful, because I can't even rub my belly like I used to or else a massive itchy/scratch session will emerge.  And sleep?  Don't even get me started.  Last night I went to bed sitting up, just to give my hips a break, lol.  That didn't last long.

I've been taking walk after walk after walk and bouncing on my b…

WANTABLE,CO

So, I told you about birchbox, now it's time to get to the good stuff.  https://www.wantable.co is the website.  After I found birchbox through another blog, I decided to search for subscription boxes, because they are fun and inexpensive.  I don't remember exactly how I found this one, but it got great reviews and very little negative comments.  
I really like this one, because you take a beauty quiz and you can specifically say you don't want things, for example I wanted nothing to do with eyebrows. I barely keep mine manicured let alone using brushes and colors on them. I also vetoed blushes, because that is just not my thing.
So I sent away and this is what came in the mail about 2-3 weeks later...

True, box isn't as "cute" as birchbox box, but let's see what is inside....

 After the cute thank you, they give you a card that tells you a little bit more about them.
They do also give you samples in addition to the full size makeup products you want.  T…
