Baby Bird - 25 Weeks

Scenario of last night: It's 2 a.m. and I have yet to sleep more than 20 minutes at a time...I am contemplating going downstairs to get some milk and a piece of bread to soak up my horrendous stomach acid which is unbearable at this point...hmmm...risk waking up the puppy or die from heartburn?  I chose to wake up my hubby and have him tiptoe downstairs to get my snacks and crossed my fingers the puppy would not wake up.  Thankfully, she did not wake up and there I sat with my glass of milk and piece of rye bread hoping this would help (rye bread? really? I'll have to invest in plain white bread for times like these)- I was desperate at this point.  It was definitely one of the worst nights I've had yet.  My doctor prescribed Protonix today and I'm hoping this will help, I'm getting desperate at this point.  I was very thankful for my hubby who sat up with me for a while and allowed me to take every pillow we own to prop myself up to the ceiling to sleep. 

Moving you can see the blog got a little face lift and I'm hoping you all like it! As promised, there is a twist of DIY and you will see at least a handful of DIY projects coming up soon.  I can't believe there's only about 15 weeks to go before Baby Bird makes her arrival! On to this week's picture:

How far along? 25 Weeks
Total weight gain: Around 14 lbs...I need to invest in a scale...I've been walking the puppy a lot so I'm hoping that keeps me in shape over the next 15 weeks
Maternity clothes? Mostly, still a mix of regular clothes and maternity
Stretch marks? Still none yet…still using Palmer's Cocoa Butter 
Sleep: Horrible this week, I'm hoping it gets better again
Best moment this week: Starting to paint the baby's room

Miss Anything? Being able to eat without getting instant heartburn
Movement: Lots of kicks and wiggles...especially during church - she must love the music!
Food cravings: Loving chocolate teddy grahams and fruit mmm
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not especially
Gender: GIRL!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Some minor cramping but nothing that lasts for long periods of time
Belly Button in or out? in...but I have noticed it is coming upwards, so weird!
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Trying to enjoy everything but I've been so uncomfortable this week, I've just been a mess
Looking forward to: Finishing up painting the baby's room and hopefully registering for baby goodies soon

Hope you enjoy your week!

Baby Bird - 24 Weeks

So I think I'm officially nesting... For the past few days/nights I've been obsessively cleaning and organizing everything I can.  I've been getting the do-you-realize-it's-9-pm-and-you're-scrubbing-the-bathroom-baseboards look from the hubby, who happily took out the garbage and didn't say a word when he saw me dusting and polishing any wood furniture I could get my hands on before bed.  I guess it's a good thing...although is it bad to continue to vacuum rugs until perfect carpet lines are achieved?  Ahh, the little things in life make me happy.  Carpet lines are one of them.  On to this week's picture.  I'm not sure stripes were a good idea, as I'm feeling large and in charge lately.

How far along? 24 Weeks
Total weight gain: Around 14 lbs...yowzaaa
Maternity clothes? Yes because they are much more comfortable than squeezing into my old jeans with a hair tie.  Super excited about my new maternity winter coat...fits so much nicer than my regular sized one
Stretch marks? Still none yet…still using Palmer's Cocoa Butter 
Sleep: Pretty good, considering I slept through most of the time that the electric company cut down a ginormous tree in my front yard this morning
Best moment this week: Cleaning out the nursery, getting ready to paint

Miss Anything? Not ramming my knee on the baby gate we use to keep the puppy out of the bedrooms... apparently my ability to lift my legs higher has now become nonexistent
Movement: Lots of little kicks and wiggles... some days I feel like she's sleeping much more than others, but last night she was a wild little thing
Food cravings: Loving smoothies in the morning... not really feeling like I have to have anything that second though
Anything making you queasy or sick: I've had some sort of cold/sore throat and that's been making me feel somewhat queasy at times
Gender: GIRL & she has a name!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Some back pain but otherwise feeling good
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy for the most part!
Looking forward to: Painting the nursery (hopefully) on Friday!

Hope you enjoy your week & thanks for reading!

Baby Bird - 22 & 23 Weeks

Hi there...this week's post is a combined one with both 22 & 23 weeks.  New Year's Eve was fun and low key this champagne over here for a while.  My twin sister is also expecting so it was nice to have someone on the same page.  She's about 7 weeks behind so I'm excited that the babies will be so close in age.  I can't wait to find out what she is having.  On to last week's photo...

I'm a little bummed about how the Instagram photos show up on here...but it still showcases the bump:) And now this week's picture...

I definitely feel like she's grown a lot in there the past week or so because her little kicks are definitely stronger and I can feel them more often.  I don't know about you, but I've always had an irrational fear about squishing her while I'm sleeping or if I haven't felt a kick in a few hours that there's something wrong.  Irrational, yes, but I'm feeling better now that I can feel it more :)

This week's & last week's combined update:

How far along? 23 Weeks
Total weight gain: Around 14 lbs...what?! ok, so ice cream and pasta the night before the drs. appt was prob not my best idea...
Maternity clothes? Definitely loving my maternity jeans because they're much more comfortable that my old jeans...also bought a Spanx type pair of leggings and they are going back was I not ready for the shiny spandex look...woof
Stretch marks? Still none yet…have been using Palmer's Cocoa Butter and that seems to be working nicely as a preventative measure:)
Sleep: Pretty good, still loving my pregnancy pillow...some nights are better than others with being wide awake at 3 a.m.
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat again was nice and completing my first diy project for the baby!

Miss Anything? I'd love a sushi date with my college roomie and bestie Teresa
Movement: Definitely more these past two it!
Food cravings: I had to have pasta with lemon sauce the other day...why you ask? so I can eat it before my drs appt and feel like a whale!!! Grrr...
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Gender: GIRL & she has a name!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Some leg cramps during the night 
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy, moody when I'm feeling tired but who isn't?:)
Looking forward to: Posting about my special diy project and starting the nursery!

Have a great weekend!
