29 week update

How far along? 29 weeks

Weight gain? 4 1bs this month! Total 28 lbs ahhh!
Maternity clothes: Yes but I'm finding out that I like wearing regular clothes better than maternity. I guess I feel skinnier that way (if that's even possible at this point). Everytime I put on one of my maternity shirts I just get frustrated because I feel like it makes me feel so much larger than I am. So right now, I'm definitely wearing things that are tight around my belly.

Sleep: It's ok. I am getting to the point where I move around alot just to get comfortable and there's only 2 different ways to sleep so I'm missing sleeping on my stomach.
Best moment of this week: Passing my sugar test! I was so nervous b/c I have craved so many sweets this pregnancy and thought for sure I'd fail it. The Lord was definitely looking out for me b/c He knows I hate sitting through that 3 hr process!
Movement: All the time. Especially after I've eaten a lot of sugar :)
Food cravings: Spinach dip with chips. I find myself wanting to eat some kindof dip in the evening and I never have it. So finally bought some frozen artichoke dip at the store, and another evening went to Olive Garden and had some there and then a couple days later went to a Tastefully Simple party and had all sorts of dips. And of course my taste buds got the best of me b/c I ordered like 3 different types of dip to have on had! That's stuff is amazing by the way if you've never had it!
What I'm looking forward to: His name. I think we have the 1st name (maybe) but we are having a hard time with the middle name. I guess I'm just waiting to get that gut feeling like, yes thats it like I did with Ethan and Jayden and haven't had that yet so not sure what's thats all about.
My worries and frustrations: I'm just really starting to get nervous about having another child to take care of. Now that Jayden is getting older, he is definitely starting to become more needy. I am usually so exhausted at the end of the day from both of them constantly pulling at me for my attention. I'm just kindof nervous how I'm going to handle another child in the house but then again, everything will work out and there's no need to worry! 
Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.

Oh boy..sounds like I need to lay off those boston cream cakes. Shame on Ishmael for bring those home lol!

Another prego moment

So I had another funny pregnancy moment that happened to me today. Last week when I went to bible study, I opened the trunk of my car to get out the double stroller for the kids. To my disappointment it wasn't there! I then just grabbed my single stroller and went on w/ my day. Well all afternoon I was racking my brain trying to think where we could've put it. Well I didn't mention it to Ishmael until this week and so he checked the basement and couldn't find it there either. Both of us were thinking really hard where we couldve left it or if we put it on our porch and someone stole it. We had no idea.
So this morning I went to Bible study like I do every Tuesday morning and checked the boys into their classrooms and ran into the nursery supervisor. I just thought I'd ask her if she happened to see a double stroller just sitting somewhere in the nursery. She quickly said yes and that someone had turned one in about 2 weeks ago to the welcome center. She told me that it could be mine or maybe not but that I should just go check and find out. Well after Bible study was over I went to the welcome desk and asked this older man sitting there if someone had brought a stroller there and sure enough, there it was. I was so excited to see it folded up against the wall. He told me they found it just sitting in the middle of the parking lot. This just made me laugh because it just sounds like something I'd do, Especially since I'm so forgetful these days. So that's my prego moment for this week.
Good times!

Funny prego moments

For those of you who have never been pregnant before, let me warn you..Your mind can seriously play some tricks on you. Being pregnant can make you forget things, dream some crazy dreams, and there's probably more that I haven't experienced. But for this particular post it's about me being very forgetful. I had recently posted on my Facebook status that one evening I was making sweat tea and just had boiled the water and was about to put sugar in the pitcher. Well when I opened the canister lid, I noticed that I was out of sugar so I went to the pantry to fill it up. When I grabbed the bag of sugar I obviously wasn't thinking and just immediately poured the whole bag of sugar into the pitcher. Why? the only explanation I have is that it's my baby brain playing tricks on me! Thankfully I hadn't poured the tea in the pitcher 1st (which I normally do) so I was able to just pour all the sugar into the canister and was able to make my sweat tea properly.
Well today I went to Kroger to grab a few things, hamburger buns being one of them. When I got home, I unloaded the groceries and proceded with my morning. When it came time to make my lunch I went to the pantry to get the buns for my chicken sandwhich. Well..they weren't in there. I searched everywhere for them. I even looked in the kids toy kitchen to se if Ethan had maybe grabbed them and stuffed them somewhere. I ran out to the car twice and looked in the floor boards and the trunk. I was so confused because I knew I brought them in the house but didn't remember putting them away. After looking everywhere I could think of I happened to glance at the trash bag and remembered throwing the plastic bags away. I had a thought that maybe I just accidentally through  the buns away. Well, sure enough I did haha. Not sure how I missed that one! But I was glad I was able to continue making my chicken sandwhich b/c I was about to really upset!
