10 weeks, 20 weeks, 30 weeks

30 Weeks!! Less than ten weeks until we meet our little man!

I can't believe we are 3/4 the way through this pregnancy. It really has gone by pretty quickly. I think I am going to miss feeling the little bumps, pokes and kicks, but I know it will be so amazing to have him on the outside with us!

How far along am I? 30 weeks and 1 day
Total weight gain? 22 pounds last weeks, so hopefully 23 pounds
Sleep? I have been waking up a lot again, hopefully this won't last :)
How am I feeling? Feeling great this week. I little tired, but we have been pretty busy. I am really enjoying having 5 days off work for the holidays.
Best moment this week? I got a pregnancy massage yesterday, it was a birthday present from Josh, Megan, Melanie and Scott. She used a pregnancy table with a belly hole, so it was so nice to be able to lay on my belly. We also went to our breastfeeding class, and it was so sweet to see Chris so interested and into it.
Movement? He has still been kicking away, nothing painful yet! It's funny to now feel these big round parts up at the top of my tummy. I can't tell if it's head or butt, I just keep rubbing it, either way :)
Belly button? My dad checked it out last night, and said it was still an innie and no line yet :)
Food cravings? I had a Wendy's vanilla Frosty on the way home last night. I ate every single bite, sorry Chris :)
What I am looking forward to? We have our child birthing class this Saturday (all day) and the hospital tour on Sunday. The classes seem to make it all seem more real.
Milestones? Baby is about 15.7 inches long, and weighs about 3 pounds. Fingernails and toenails are finally finished developing. When baby is awake his eyes are now wide open.

29 Weeks!

How far along am I? 29 Weeks
Total weight gain? gained 5 this month, so total is 22 pounds
Sleep? Sleep is great! I am usually asleep by 9:15 or 9:30 and get up at 5:15 (there are a few potty breaks in there, of course!)
How am I feeling? I am feeling great! It's getting a little harder to bend over, but other than that I feel wonderful! I am really going to miss being pregnant.
Best moment this week? There were so many....My baby shower, passing my glucose test, getting all of his clothes and blankets washed and organizer, our first breastfeeding class, and getting my diaper bag.
Movement? He is still moving like crazy. He's not moving as much during the day, but at night, around 8:00, he has a little party in my belly!
Belly Button? Still in
Food Cravings? Nothing in particular
What I am looking forward to? The child birthing class, hospital tour, and getting the rest of his room organized. Daddy is working on new shelves for his closet.
Check out his cute toy box we painted!

Shower given by Emily and Amanda

Yesterday Amanda and Emily threw me a dessert shower! It was so delicious! They had all of my favorite things...Chocolate Chip cookies, petit fours, mini pumpkin pies, pumpkin chocolate chips muffins, toffee fudge, peanut butter balls....YUM! Amanda made this precious diaper cake with turtles on it! It is now sitting in his room.
Logan got so many awesome gifts! Mimi got him this precious "going home" outfit with a tiny little hat and sweet little booties! I can't wait to see him in it. I have been looking for something, and this is perfect! We also got our video monitor, which Chris was so excited about. He took it out last night and is already getting it set-up. Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful gifts! I was busy last night organizing and I started washing his blankets and clothes!

28 Weeks!

Last week as an eggplant!
How far along am I? 28 weeks
Total weight gain? I will find out on Monday
Sleep? I think I can say that I am getting the third trimester sleepies. I feel asleep while trying to watch several tv shows this week, and I feel asleep on the living room floor! Chris had to wake me up!
How am I feeling? Wonderful besides my back. My back is hurting pretty much every time I sit down. :(
Best moment this week? My wonderful baby shower and seeing my beautiful baby boy in 4D! He was so sleepy, just like Mommy!
Movement? He has been moving like crazy. It's funny how much more I have been able to feel him over the last few weeks.
Belly Button? Still in
Food Cravings? I had to get some Cheetos on the way home yesterday...They sounded so good! We now have an open bag of about 20 different chips in the pantry. I want a certain kind of chips, then after I have it once, I don't really want them again.
What I am looking forward to? My third shower this weekend. Amanda and Emily are throwing it. I can't wait to see everyone! We also get to go back on Friday to try to get some better pictures of Logan. Our appointment is at 5:00. Check back Friday night for more pictures!

We had another beautiful shower!

What another amazing weekend! Not only did I get to spend it with my wonderful family, but they threw me the most beautiful and amazing baby shower. Every little detail was so beautiful and so very much appreciated. I was having to hold back tears when I first walked in, because it just took my breath away. Logan is one lucky baby! He got so many wonderful things! I have been organizing and cutting tags, so I can start washing his clothes this week! Here are a few pictures, and I will post more as soon as I get them from Aunt Carroll.

We are having a gymnast!

So, not only does Logan LOVE to show us that he has a peepee, but he also wanted to show us that he is a gymnast! He pretty much had his feet over his face the whole time. You can see in one of the pictures, he had his legs bent back over his head. We even took a break so I could drink a Coke to get him to move his legs. When he finally moved his legs, he moved the umbilical cord in front of his face. We didn't get the best pictures, but we still got to see his perfect little face. He looks like he may have my nose and my big cheeks. We caught him yawning several times! The lady is going to let us come back next Friday to try and get some better pictures.

This is him yawning
This is his face. You can see his mouth, nose and left eye

This is another face shot, but the cord is in front of his eyes and forehead. You can see his nose, mouth and cheeks.

This is the gymnast shot. It is a little hard to tell but his legs are across the top, bottom is the round top left part, and his face (profile) is bottom left. It's like he's making a backwards C with his body.

So excited about this weekend!

I am so excited about this weekend, it's all I can think about! Tomorrow my Aunt Carroll, Aunt Ann, and cousin Melanie get in town for the baby shower. We are going out to eat and to see Baby Logan on 4D ultrasound! I am so excited to see him! I hope we can see his little face and features.
I can't wait to see Melanie's baby bump! It is so much fun having your cousin (who is the sister I never had) pregnant at the same time as you. I was looking through pictures, and I can't believe how much has changed in just 6 months. In April, we took a trip to the beach and Melanie and I were in the middle of trying to get pregnant, and now look at us!

27 Weeks!

How far along am I? 27 weeks
Total weight gain? Find out in less than two weeks....who cares!
Sleep? Sleep is still good, but the time change was a little hard. My body didn't understand that I was supposed to get an extra hour of sleep.
How am I feeling? I feel great! Other than this big thing in the way when I try to bend over I still really can't tell a difference. I love being pregnant!
Best moment this week? My first baby shower, of course! It was so beautiful and I feel so blessed!
Movement? He is moving a lot more now. I feel his a lot in the morning, between 7 and 9, and at night between 7-11. I think he may have flipped the other night. I felt this huge hard bulge, and then it was gone a few seconds later.
Belly button? It's still in, but not for long
Food Cravings? It's been cheese this week.
What I am looking forward to? My shower this weekend, and the sneak peek we are going to get of Logan Friday at 5:00. My two aunts and cousin are coming in town to help host my shower and we are going to go get a 3D ultrasound Friday! I am so excited! I can't wait to see his sweet little face. I just hope he cooperates!

My First Shower!

I still can't believe how beautiful my mom and Sandy made my shower yesterday. I feel so blessed to have so many caring friends. Logan received so many wonderful gifts and I had such a good time putting them away and getting things organized last night. What a blessing! Here are a few pictures...
