34 Weeks


One thing I can say that I've always been blessed with is great girlfriends my whole life. Grade school/high school was great, still love my college girls and these girls up top are my girls from Baltimore.  We all met about 6 years ago through boys/work/sports and haven't looked back since.  There are 4 kids between us (soon to be 6).  
I so appreciate the fact that we all make an effort to have our girls nights out even after some of us have had our children.  It's so nice to get away every now and again and be able to just talk to the ladies about every day stuff that only other ladies truly understand.  
Now next are my PA girls. 
As I've mentioned before, we're working on about 15 - 20 years of friendship with these ladies.

Oh yeah, and 11 kids between us (soon to be 12)! HAHAHAHA
I never understood girls who said they only get along with boys.  I have such a great time with my girls I wouldn't survive without them!  I can appreciate a guy f…

Maternity clothes? Yes Please, they are even getting a little tight....
Stretch marks? I'll just answer that with a YES

Miss Anything? Wine, Sleeping on my back/stomach, running
Movement: Lots, I feel a lot of movements in my pelvis area, which is a weird feeling.

Matthew's Nursery

I'd say it's a success!  Now I just need a little bundle of joy to put in that little crib!

Getting Lower?

Last week vs. This week.

Everybody get low low low low low low low low.

32 Weeks

32 weeks with Matthew                                        32-33 weeks with Emma

I seem happier the second time around, hahaha, or maybe just more awake.  Can't tell if I look bigger,smaller or the same.

Just a quick update with some pics.

This week as been crazy so far.  Emma got Hand, Foot & Mouth disease, so she's been out of school since Thursday, and can't go back until this Friday.

Fortunately Chris' parents came down and can watch her this week so we don;'t have to take off more work!

She seems better, but she did get the fever and the bumps. I'm hoping it's away for good now!

I'm 32 Weeks and 3 days. Nothing much has changed since my last appointment, except I'm hot ALL THE TIME.  I wake up sweating every night and at work, I'm like, turn up the air.  Everyone else thinks its freezing in the office, but I'd take an igloo to work in these days.

what else what else.......One fun thing with the in-laws being here i…

31 Weeks

How far along? 31 weeks 4 days Total weight gain/measurements: 24Lbs. Was just measured yesterday and honestly I was happily surprised. Since I was just on a week of vacation in OCMD and ice cream was not hard to come by, I was a little worried! Stretch marks? No new ones. Sleep: Well, MOnday night was A FREAKING NIGHTMARE, but only because of my first born. (more on that later), but other than that, just the regular 5 - 6 pillows a night. Best moment this week: Taking Emma to the aquarium.  In the short amount of time since the last time we were there, I really feel like she enjoyed it so much more.  IT was so sweet to watch her staring and waving at the fish.  THe dark shark tunnel scared her just a little, but we didn't mind the extra needed cuddles.

Miss anything? Sushi, italian subs, rolling around on the floor with Emma. Movement: Loads - HE NEVER STOPSSSSSSSS Food cravings: sweets! Anything making you queasy or sick? Not right now. Gender: BOY! Labour signs: Lots of braxton hicks and…

OCMD 2014!

Just got back from our beach trip!

It's crazy to think just 2 years ago I was just pregnant with Emma.  Now I'm pregnant with Matthew (much, much more pregnant).


I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, so I'll probably do an update after that, but wanted to share some pics.

All in all it was a wonderful trip!  Completely successful.  We all stayed in the same hotel this year, which was really nice to be so close, so next year I think we'll do the same, only upgrading to condos.  Hotels are nice, but it's nice to be able to close a door when baby is sleeping.

I'LL HAVE 2 KIDS BY NEXT VACAY! Heck, I'll have 2 kids in 56 days (or less)  <-- a girl can dream!

We even spent our first night away from Emma (Chris and I at the same time) and Emma got to have a sleepover at Grammy and Poppy's with Savannah and McKenna.  Judging by the pics, I'd say they had a great time.  Poor Matthew will be the odd man out....I have a feeling he'll get spoil…
