32 Weeks








How far along? 32 Weeks
Total weight gain: 2( Total 22.5)
Maternity clothes? Some maternity, some normal.
Stretch marks? I think I might be getting some on my hips :( I put lotion on me every morning and night to try and avoid it. If I end up getting them, ill just have to be ok with it.
Sleep: Some days I get really good sleep and others I don't. I do take naps every day or I turn into a total grump. 
Miss Anything? My normal body hahaha
Movement:Yes, he has been stretching and kicking my bladder. I love watching him push up on my stomach which he is doing a lot more since there isn't much room.
Food cravings: No intense cravings. Most things still sound gross but there is a couple things I can still handle. ( Sams club hotdogs) 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Anything slimy. And the smell of dog poop (Which made me throw up right before I had to leave for work). 
Gender: BOY
Labor Signs: Nope. I thought I was having Braxton Hicks, but now I don't think I am.
Symptoms: My lower back is killing me and the stretching hurts. Since he is breeched right now, I'm feeling sharp pain above my pelvic bone.
Belly Button in or out? Its still in. I don't think it will poke out.
Wedding rings on or off? Off :( I miss my 
beautiful ring.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Depends on the day.
Looking forward to: Jaxon to get here.

Still growing, your baby weighs in at about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds ( My doctor says he's about 3lb 15oz)
 and measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches.
He's getting ready for his descent -- he's likely in the head-down position now. (NO he isn't )
And he's probably feeling even more cramped.



I have lost my toes.


The baby bellies!


They once were white. Im having so much fun dying them. More colors soon.


Some others I made.

31 Wks 5 days

This was the last time that we tried to do yet another 3D Ultrasound and my son
is still a stubborn baby. He is still Frank Breeched and not only had
his feet in his face but his hand and cord also.
Besides all that, we did manage to get some cute pictures. I got to 
watch him suck on his toes, yawn, and smile.
Apparently he likes to suck on anything that is by his mouth.
Silly boy.

 Big Yawn.

 Another Big Yawn.



Smile :)

31 Weeks


Im noticing my energy dropping. Im always so tired and I take naps throughout the day.
I still get sick every once in awhile and throw up.
I thought that was suppose to stop after the first trimester.
I'm only 2 months away and Im starting to not want to be pregnant anymore.
If I felt great, I would have no problem staying pregnant.
He is still breeched which is giving me not so fun pains. Little stinker.

He is still a little stubborn man. I keep having to go back to the 3D ultrasound place
because he is always hiding his face. Make sure if you ever do a 3D ultrasound, the
company will keep letting you come back if they can't get a good picture. 
The place I go to is GREAT.
( First Glimpse in Colorado Springs.)


How far along? 31 Weeks
Total weight gain: 1.5( Total 20.5)

Stretch marks? Not yet. :) Im hoping to be the lucky one that doesn't get it.
Sleep: I sleep till about 4am and then I'm wide awake. Im so drained half way through my day that I have to take a nap.
Miss Anything? My energy, looking cute in clothes, and weighing 20 lbs lighter haha.
Movement:Yes, he has been stretching and kicking my bladder. I love watching him push up on my stomach.

Food cravings: No intense cravings. Most things still sound gross but there is a couple things I can still handle. ( Sams club hotdogs)

He's about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds this month.
He's going through major brain and nerve development.
 He's getting so big, he's probably crowding your lungs.
Eye development, too. His irises now react to light!
All five of his senses are in working order.






She thinks she's the baby right now.

30 Weeks



Im so excited... I got my hair done! (First picture up top)
 All thanks to my wonderful Mother as an early birthday gift.
It feels so good to get pampered. 
Other then that my husband and I went in for what I thought would be our last 3D ultrasound.
We couldn't get a good picture because his umbilical cord was in front of his face,
and so were his feet. As of right now he is Frank Breeched. At lease I think thats what you call it.
Basically he is folded in half. So I'm praying that he will straighten out or i'll have to get a C section. :(
Ill be going in again in 2 days to try it again. Im determined to get a good picture of his cute little chubby face.



How far along? 30 Weeks

Sleep: Im starting to toss and turn again, and now I'm getting up around 5am to go to the bathroom. 
Miss Anything? Food I'm not allowed to eat and being able to do things on my own like carrying something heavy.
Movement:Yes, he has been stretching and kicking my bladder. 

Food cravings: Fruit loops, chocolate milk, Peach ice tea from Olive Garden and Strawberries with the cream cheese and marshmallow cream mix.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Anything slimy. And the smell of dog poop (Which made me throw up right before I had to leave for work). 
Gender: BOY

At 30 weeks, he’s not just moving a lot, he’s also plumping up.
 And as he continues to put pressure on your digestive system, you’re going to feel the effects: hemorrhoids, heartburn, pelvic pain and frequent urination are all common at this stage in the game.
His skin is getting smoother.
But his brain is getting wrinklier -- to make way for all that essential brain tissue.
He's now strong enough to grasp a finger!



25 Weeks- 30 Weeks

29 Weeks


Not much happened this week besides me getting a REALLY bad headache that made me throw up.
I can't wait to meet him but I'm really going to miss watching him move around in my tummy.
I love seeing and feeling him stretch and kick.
My puppy Lacy has been very cuddly lately... it makes me wonder if she knows whats going on.
I still can't believe ill have a son in 2 1/2 months!
My due date is my birthday... do you think he will arrive before, on it, or after?

Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. 
Right now, he weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but he's still got a ways to go -- 
can you believe he'll triple in weight before birth?
He's getting a little cramped in there, since he's growing so fast. 
But you probably already realize that, since you're getting all those jabs and kicks.
He's growing white fat deposits under his skin, and his energy is surging because of it.
Feel a subtle twitch? It might be baby hiccupping.

28 Weeks








This week has been hard. I started getting really bad pains in my lower back and what feels like period cramps. I was told that they are Braxton Hicks (they suck). Its made working really hard to do. Other then that, Jaxon has been moving a lot more then normal. I love watching him move around and I finally was able to record it :) 
My husband and I went camping (In a tent)for his birthday. A lot of people were shocked that I went since I'm pregnant but it wasn't bad at all. I brought my pillow and slept on a blow up mattress. I want to do it again :)

He's starting to develop more fat, so his wrinkly skin will start to get smoother.
His lungs are mature enough that he'd probably survive if he was born now. 


I wasn't feeling good so I went to lay down in the car and my husband brought me food.


The cake I made for my husband... and it turned out amazing!!! ( My first good cake)








Colorado Springs got hit hard with the Waldo Canyon Fire this week. 346 Houses burnt down and 2 deaths :(
