Week 28: This was a big week! We started our bi-weekly doctor appointments and guess what we found out?? You're breech! Just like your big sister. We'll see if you stay that way!
Week 29: We traveled to Colorado this week! This marks the last time we'll go anywhere until you're born. That was another milestone for my mental state :) at the VERY end of the week, you moved! Goodness, it didn't feel good- wondering if you're going to stay in this new position or move back. You're basically trying to kick out of my stomach and the feeling of the kicks or jabs will randomly make me gasp. Chill, child! We have a few weeks to go!!
WEEKS 30 & 31 // 8.11.14
Week 30: You turned! Wow, I could tell. The movements completely changed and they did NOT feel good. Sometimes your movements would make me gasp, but it's all good! I just push you back in ;)
Week 31: Sleeping is hard. Breathing is hard. Things are just getting hard! I also feel a lot bigger this week. It's absolutely crazy to think how close your due date is. We're making steps on moving Payton into her new room so you can have the nursery! It's becoming very real and we cannot wait to meet you :) you're still nameless...although Payton still thinks your name is Ariel...or Payton Thomas :)
Week 24: Had an appointment this week and heard your heartbeat! She said she'll probably check next time to make sure nothing has started in the labor process since your sister was early. You are going to be here before we know it!!!! Payton's not in this weeks picture because she was playing her little heart out with sweet PG! It was nice alone time for mommy.
Week 25: I definitely feel different this week! Trying to breathe...also trying to figure out how to track any "contractions" I may be having. Who knows. You are a kicker! Geez Louise. We can see you moving around everyday. Payton can hardly stand her excitement. She runs up to hug my stomach everyday! She's extra happy this week because she was with Kayla the whole time!! So. Much. Fun!
WEEKS 26 & 27 // 7.15.14
Week 26: Kick! Jab! Contraction? Maybe! Maybe not. When I was pregnant with Payton, I had her 10 weeks from this week. That seems crazy! She started dance class this week - can't wait for you to join her!
Week 27: Wow, I feel bigger this week! I feel a lot of movement all over and at times. Sometimes, it seems like you're moving every part of your body, as fast as you can, for about a minute! Your Nebraska family got to see how much you've grown this week since Payton and I visited. They are all excited to meet you! Oh, and Payton has decided to name you Ariel :)
Week 20: HALF WAY! How did that happen?? We had an routine ultrasound at the hospital this week. Good thing it was there because if we were going there for the first time in labor, we'd probably have you in the car. That place is HUGE. So many buildings. So little signage. Best news of all- you look perfect
Week 21: Goodness, you're a mover! I feel you mostly at night, when I'm laying down. If Payton would keep her hand on my belly for more than half a second, she may be able to feel you! You moved this week causing me to chug sprite and look bigger! Things are definitely starting to change from week to week now. Yay!
WEEKS 22 & 23 // 6.16.14
Week 22 :: Shortness of breath has returned. Lots of kicking. She's definitely awake when I go to sleep!
Week 23 :: Seeing kicks now!! Seems so early! Sick all week.
Week 16: Ultrasound found that you're breech! We also could NOT get a good view of you because your spiny back was toward us :) So, girl confirmation will have to wait, but I'm pretty sure you are.
Week 17: Feeling pretty normal now with the exception of shortness of breath. Feeling kicks everyday!!!Can't wait for Matt and Payton to feel :) Payton does not love taking pictures. Hahaha! So I take the best of maybe 2. Week 16 is my fave so far. Mid-sneeze
WEEKS 18 & 19 // 5.19.14
Week 18: feeling much more normal now. Not tired. Not sick. Feeling good and love feeling the baby :) Payton hugs and kisses the baby daily!
Week 19: had a surprise ultrasound this week! My doctor confirmed it's a girl!! And she's still breech. Feeling kicks more and more throughout the day now. Onto week 20!! Half way...what?!
Baby #2:: Weeks 12 & 13 Forgot to cross off the weeks in the first one. Last pregnancy, I would have taken it into photoshop, cleaned it up and crossed off the numbers. This pregnancy? Not so much. It'll be just as interesting to see how Payton changes over these several weeks than my belly...or more!
WEEKS 14 & 15 // 4.21.14
Week 14 :: picture FAIL :: craving strawberry slushes :: can I already feel her?!
Week 15 :: cheese:: still loving those slushes! :: feeling pretty good :: definitely have a baby belly now vs a maybe baby maybe "lunch" baby
