I got his letters up on the wall today! They look lost on that big wall, but it's the first thing I've hung so far and have a few more things to do!
Looks awesome, surprise surprise And I *love* his name
Such cute baby bellies
Howdy!!!! 27 week update and belly pics for those who care to take a peek!!!
And a close up for good measure!
I am feeling great, albeit huge! My toes have now disappeared and I did the boob squeeze test today and got some colostrum! Yikes, I really am heading into the 3rd trimester! Where did the time go!!
OB appt tomorrow and I have my GD test! Will kup!
All my fellow Sept 05 preggo mammas are looking awesome! I love the updated belly pics! Love the nursery pics too! This poor kid doesn't even have a bedroom! We live in a 2 bedroom house!
Looking GORGEOUS mamas!! I wish everyone would follow Sarah's lead and include their HEADS with their pics though!!
Congrats on your third trimester Sarah! I can't believe how fast it has all gone.
For all you 2nd time arounders, has this pregnancy gone by faster than your first? (It sure has for me!) Are you as excited by all the changes in your body or are they just old hat this time around? Are you as excited for baby #2 or apprehensive? Sorry for all the questions, just talking about ttc again (not TOO soon) and getting nervous just thinking about it!
The only reason I haven't included my face is because DH sucks at taking pictures and I don't have enough room in my closet really to get a full body shot-hehe.
This time around seems a lot different for me. Almost like an old hat type of feeling. I know with Brynn, the minute she kicked I made such a big deal about it, but with Jase, it doesn't feel like it's such a big deal since I expect it, etc.
I think a lot of it has to do that so much of my time is consumed with Brynn also, so I don't have time to really stop and think about this one as much as I did when I was preggo with Brynn.
I felt that it went really fast with Brynn and this one seems like it has also! I think a lot of that comes from being a teacher. We have at least one staff day every month without kids, plus the holidays here and there that just make some weeks and months just fly! Plus, with Brynn I was always a new week on Fridays, so for some reason that made Friday's seem like every other day. With this one, it's a Monday, so it's fairly the same.
I'm excited for Jase to come, but on the other hand, I don't feel as prepared because I had a girl first, so a lot of things will be new for me, whereas if it was a girl, I would feel all set
Stacy! I only include heads when I look half decent! That often means that poor Mick, has to keep taking pics until we get a goodie!
About this pg, the first tri really seemed to d-r-a-g!! But if I remember correctly it did the first time! This middle bit seems to have flown by, I blinked and now I am in the third tri and the "holy sh*t I am about to have TWO children under two" feelings are starting to surface. So yeah, the apprehension is definitely building!!! Everyone I talk to says the first three to six months with a young toddler and a newborn can be pretty hellish! I am starting to worry that I wont cope with all of Max's stuff whilst being so sleep deprived. Actually, I really am not worried about dealing with the baby, it's being awake enough for Max to give him all the attention he needs so that he doesn't go off the deep end that I am worried about! I'll KUP on how that goes!! Wish me luck!
Body wise, I am excited by the belly (not the arse, thighs or back fat that go with it!!!!). I feel bigger this time and I think I look bigger than my pics from last time. This baby seems to move way more than Max did so I am very conscious of him/her all the time which I enjoy.
Because we didn't even think about ttc this time around I am doing all the thinking and worrying whilst actually pg, you will go through the same stuff but have some time to process it before hand! C'mon Stacy, I want to see you knocked up girlie!! Then once the kiddos are old enough we can come over and go on an Aspen ski holiday with you! Now that sounds fun! Kids in ski school, parents hit the slopes and then the bars at lunch time!! J/k about the bar bit, well kind of....!
18 weeks and then 21 weeks
love the bellies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! toooooooo cute! and the room looks great Jamie!
Awwww you all look so great! And I love the room!
I'm gonna be brave and post a belly pic... I couldn't get my hand to stop shaking enough to get a really good clear pic, but uhhhh who wants clear anyways? Here's my almost 20 week belly....
I know scary! LOL
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I LOVE the belly sabrina! that looks close to how I was at 20 weeks with kayleigh
Melanie and Sabrina, beautiful bellies ladies, I love 'em!!!!!
You both look fantastic!!!
Melanie, you can definitely see a difference in that couple of weeks, grow baby grow!!!!
Bum! I failed my glucose challenge test and now have to go for the three hour fasting test! I DO NOT want to have GD so fingers crossed for me please!
If anyone has any tips for the next test I'll take them all!!!
Aww man! Is it the same drink you have to drink but just fast before it this time??
Ok, here's a face shot at 26 weeks. I cant' tell which is more fat-my belly or face-hehe
Oh, and please ignore the stuff on top of our cupboards. DH thinks it's a storage space and won't put stuff away so he throws it up there and it absolutely drives me NUTS! Especially since I can't reach it now! The cereal is supposed to go in a cupboard but someone's little sticky fingers drags it all over the house! Now she just drags the kitchen chair over to reach them-urghh
Yup, but they also take your blood before the drink, once in the middle I think and then after three hours! UGH!
Sabrina, Jamie and Melanie - you all look great!!! Loving all the belly pics - with head shots!
great pics girls!!!!!!!!! you look great jamie!
you guys look fantastic!!!
I'm sorry to hear that you failed your one hour - I'm crossing my fingers so you pass the 3 hour!!!
You all look fabulous I can't believe how fast time is flying. Won't be long before many of our September Sapphires have a little sibling
Sarah ~ Sorry you failed your 1-hour. I did that when I was pg with Jonathan, but passed the 3-hour with flying colours, so I hope that the same happens for you!
Great bellies Jamie, Melanie and Sabrina! And thanks for including your heads - you are so much more beautiful with heads attached to your bodies!
Jamie, it is sooo cute the way Brynn is looking at your belly!
Actually, I really am not worried about dealing with the baby, it's being awake enough for Max to give him all the attention he needs so that he doesn't go off the deep end that I am worried about! I'll KUP on how that goes!! Wish me luck!
Good luck!! And remember that Mick will be there to give Max lots of attention!
C'mon Stacy, I want to see you knocked up girlie!! Then once the kiddos are old enough we can come over and go on an Aspen ski holiday with you! Now that sounds fun! Kids in ski school, parents hit the slopes and then the bars at lunch time!! J/k about the bar bit, well kind of....!
Sounds great...except I'm not quite ready to get knocked up...another 6-8 months and then we'll talk. As for hitting the bars at lunch, I think by the time we have two kids in school we'll definitely deserve it!! Sounds like a plan!
So I had my appointment today. It was pleasantly uneventful. I gained 2lbs...UGH! My first gain this pregnancy. So now I'm at -16lbs. Reese is looking great! Thats all, just thought I'd update!
You all look great and I agree on the head shots. You all make me want to have a baby belly again. I miss being prego. At least I would have an excuse on why this belly aint going away! I'll be hitting the gym in the morning!
CONGRATS on another great appointment Melanie! Alittle gain had to happen sooner or later! LOL You've done FANTASTIC so far so dont stress about it! :grin:
Well if it makes you feel any better, just be glad you didn't have to write +30 like I would
And here is the reason I usually don't have a head picture...because even when DH takes it, I still barely do
oh my god you have the perfect little prego body. UGH! Thanks for sharing your head! LOL tell him to back up a step next time! MEN!
30+? Not with this pregnancy right? Cuz you do NOT look like you've gained much of anything and whatever you have is all in your belly! You look fantastic Jamie!
Yep Jaime! You look fantastic! Such a cute baby belly
Oh yes, I've gained 30. I gained 42 with Brynn! It's mostly in my face, butt and thighs (other than the obvious belly). I think just because I'm taller it may hide it better? I sure see it though-haha
Hey I thought I would update. I had my 2D U/S yestuday. The U/S tech said that the baby looks "text book" perfect. She was kicking the daylights out of me the entire time which is funny because I've been telling both my DH and SIL for the past two weeks that I could feel her and they didn't believe me but they totally do now after seeing her move like that.
I'm almost 13 weeks along and I kept calling her a girl. Well becasue this pregnancy is almost exactly like it was with DD and then when I saw her it brought me back to almost six years ago. DD was always trying to kick her way out of my stomach.
Anyway the U/S tech said it's really early to tell but she would be surprised if I was wrong from what she saw. I'll know for sure next month. Hopefully on Monday I can post pictures so you guys can see what this little baby looks like.
Congrats! Great news! I'm getting beat up here too! Jase is NON-STOP! It's about to drive me nuts!
Same here! Reese doesn't know how to slow down! Atleast I'm good at making him go to sleep when I want him to.
Congrats Kathy, its good to see the lil ones in there!
Glad to hear that baby is doing so well Kathy! I'm a great believer in mother's intuition, so if you feel like this one is a girl, it probably is
This is not meant to be a pity party...but today, I've had the works! I have one kid in my morning class that just sets my mood for the day. It started yesterday when he bit through my little wand thing that has glitter in it and broke it. I still am not over that-LOL. He comes in today as defiant as ever and my patience quickly ran out. My afternoon class was wild and I just kept having to repeat myself all day and I had about had it!
At dinner tonight, my ribs started hurting-so here we go again!
Brynn was on my computer tonight and she tipped my stool over. It's just a small stool and when it's on its side, it has a wood piece in it and Brynn likes to use it as a chair (hopefully that makes sense?)
So tonight, I go to sit down and didn't even think to look and I fell into this little seat. I just started crying! First it scared me...and then second, I scraped up my thighs and both of my arms. My left arm is bruised and bleeding. Brynn did NOT like that! She started crying and was upset that I was hurt and wanted me, but I couldn't pick her up because my arms hurt so bad!
DH had to pull me out of the stupid seat. I guess the only positive thing of the night is that I could actually FIT in the seat-haha.
Awww geez Jamie! I'm sorry things have been so poopy! I hope everything starts looking up for you
AWWWWWWWWWW HUN! I'm sorry about your day. I swear evil little children have a radar to know what days you cant handle the acting up and then they do it! :roll:
hope today is better!
Sorry you had such a rough day. Hope you are feeling better after falling through the chair :bigarmhug:
Jamie - sounds like a rough day! I hope things get better
Kathy- Congrats on the Text book appointment!
Woo Hoo! 37 pounds baby! haha....BLAH. Everything else was lookin' good at least at my appointment today!
I had a dr's appt last night. Nothing big, I did gain 4lbs so far totaling 6lbs. B/P was great H/B was stong. I have an appt on the 26th for my big U/S and we'll find out what were having!
So far everything's great!
whoooooo-hoooooo! any feelings on what the babe is jenny? I'm giong to say boy......... :grin:
the 26th is right around the corner!
I'm really thinking its going to be a girl - for some reason my mind just can't get off of girl. We'll see soon enough!!!
Glad you had such a good appt! Sending you tons of 'open-leg' vibes for the 26th!!!
Jenny - any chance I can convince you to come over to the dark side and do the surprise thing? All the cool gals have surprises! LOL! Speaking of - Sabrina, what happened????? You found out!!! Naughty girl!
Jamie - you look fabo! Where on earth are those 30 pounds cos I sure as heck can't see them???
Kathy - happy to hear your u/s went well!
Megan - time for you to join the thread!
30 weeks over here! Time is REALLY flying by! Thank goodness I passed my second GD test, I was so relieved!
30 weeks belly pics!!! Plus comparisons to 30 weeks with Max! I think I look about the same, maybe a bit rounder, perhaps a tad bigger? What do you think?
Side on! I look like a shaggy dog in the 2nd one!
And a close up!
OMG! Ten weeks to go! OB appt tomorrow so I will see if bubs is still breech, I am pretty sure he/she is b/c I have lots of foot action down low! Fun, fun!
Yep, I think you look a bit bigger this time around also! I need to compare from Brynn. I did awhile back and it seemed like I was bigger this time too. Looking good though!
I had my appt. Thursday and I go back in 3 weeks and then start my 2 week appointments...that just made it seem like I skipped a month and could go any minute! I hope it goes fast!
Sarah you look GREAT! Wow. I suppose I'll post another belly shot from today, but no head, sorry!
Haha, I tried to squeeze my head in the second one, does that count???
I kept almost nothing down yesterday, ugh! What trimester am I in? I think Reese thinks we're still in the first trimester. Hmm...
The bellies look great ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know I know I should join Sarah, I am still a little weary though. Maybe tomorrow, I'll be 4 weeks tomorrow and AF is would be due tomorrow. I just need to get past that and I think that I'll be okay!!
awwwwwwww great belly pics!
SArah you look almost excatly like last time in the belly!
melanie I love the second pic! that it too cute! And you have the most perfect skin. no fair! LOL
And you have the most perfect skin. no fair! LOL
Hehe I was thinking the same thing! My face is so fat right now I think it would have taken up that entire picture if I tried that-haha.
WOW! I found a picture of Brynn at 31 weeks and here's my comparison to it at 28.4 weeks!
