Merry Christmas... and 33 weeks!

Merry Christmas!!!

I'm lucky that my 'week change' happens on Thursdays... I get to change on holidays this year! Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve!

So, we had a Very wet rainy Christmas Eve day and night, and about 10:30 am on Christmas Day it started to snow... Still going... not really starting to turn the ground white yet... but it's pretty to see come down!

So, here's some pictures from Christmas Eve!

The 33 week Belly!

Kayla Jumping in !Ready to open Gifts
Do not disturb a hungry chick!
I was starving! Had to get a plate of food before the fun started!

Bex Handing out Gifts!

We all got Vikings Sweatshirts!

The Start of My Mother's Necklace. Kaygan is the Feb purple birthstone, and Taylor is the Jan red birth stone... yes I cried....

31 Weeks

How far along: 31 Weeks... please let there be no more than 9 left!
Total weight gain/loss: 14lbs
Maternity clothes: Yes for the shirts. I'm still wearing my regular jeans with a Bella Band to help hold them up since I can't button them anymore... I should cave and get regular maternity jeans, but I just can't find Tall's anywhere... and if I've made it this far without them...
Stretch marks: Just a small patch of two or three!
Sleep: yes, I'm sleeping, but I wake up quite a bit and sometimes can't fall back to sleep at all!
Best moment last week: Kaygan has really been moving alot, you can see my whole stomach bounce and if she puts her foot against my belly and pushes, then moves it while pushing, you can track her foot!
Movement: strong as ever, still mostly very low, but getting a bunch higher up now too!
Food cravings: I really wanted a meatball sub from Subway the other night, then I got one and didn't like it :( I'm also really liking greek salads and spicy food!
Gender: GIRL!
Labor Signs: Been having Braxton Hicks Contractions. Not really a sign of labor, just one of those things that means we're getting closer to the end!
Belly Button in or out: Innie...but a very shallow innie! The edges of it are starting to puff out a bit... it's very weird and made Bobby's eyes bulge when he saw it... He actually told me to stop pushing my belly out... The eye bulging part came when I told him I wasn't pushing my belly out... it was just that huge!
What I miss: Being able to easily get up off of a cushy couch! Not having to pee every 5 minutes!
What I am looking forward to: Delivery. I think we've hit all the fun stuff now.
Milestones: Tuesday Dec 8th was my last 4 week dr. visit. We now go every other week for the next 6 weeks... at 36 weeks I'll start going every week. Dr. visits are pretty routine and boring now, but they somewhat seem like something to look forward too!

30 Week Veggie

Baby’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. (Have those kicks and jabs to the ribs tipped you off yet?) Baby is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though -- as you’ve also probably noticed -- they don’t necessarily coincide with your own. Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments.

Thanksgiving and 29 Weeks!

So, I was 29 Weeks along on Thanksgiving. So, I'm posting this a whole week late, but the pics needed to be shown!!! This first picture is how big I feel, well, I actually feel much bigger! But this is as good as I could do to show it!
This is just me... 29 weeks, in a maternity shirt from my sweet Mother in Law... Kayla and Becky, especially Becky, both said this was the cutest shirt ever and wished they made it in non-maternity style!
Me again...
Ahhh, my sweet Husband on Thanksgiving. He and my cousin Jason made a beer can turkey on the grill outside...hence th ugly camo hat... The face, well, that's my man!
My brother Samuel sent these scarves from Afghanistan for everyone who was at our house for Thanksgiving, plus a few more for some other people. Everyone got different ones except for me and Kaygan, he wanted us two to have matching ones. He specifically picked each one for specific people... Bobby got a black and red 'Husker' one!
Kayla and I... all Afgany scarved out...
and again... with the traditional 'listen to the belly' shot.
This was supposed to be a cute sister shot... but Bobby just couldn't help but butt in!

So, we had a good Thanksgiving. It was small, only about 22 people were there I think. Still fun though!
