Happy Memorial Day and Welcome Third Trimester!


Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all the troops that make it possible for us to enjoy living in this beautiful country! We will be celebrating from Gulf Shores...a much needed family beach vacation (aka semi-baby moon) with some close friends. Cannot think of a better way to welcome the third trimester; besides a large cold glass of chocolate milk.



Total weight gain this month: +22 pounds

Maternity clothes? I finally went into a maternity store for the first time ever! Putting on those maternity shorts after squeezing into my jeans was A-MA-ZING! I hate the prices, but love being able to breathe again.
Stretch marks? None yet. I'm using Burt's Bees Belly Butter every morning
Sleep: I am having more and more trouble breathing and some leg cramps at night, but other than that it is great.
Best moment this month: Just hanging out on the weekends with my boy. Trying to get as much time in with him as possible.
Miss Anything? Sushi, drinks, and my clothes...and running without pain
Movement: Yup...every night she goes crazy
Food cravings: Salad every day for lunch and the chocolate milk craving is back this time! I also LOVE strawberry milk...
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Getting the stomach bug. Every time she would move I would get even more nauseous...horrible
Have you started to show yet: Yup!
Gender prediction: IT'S A GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: I had braxton hicks contractions for 3 days straight and ended up going to Labor and Delivery where they told me it was from dehydration. I'm drinking a lot of water now.
Belly Button in or out?  It is almost flat.
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Stressed about getting everything done in time

Looking forward to:  Getting the nursery and other projects finished
