30 weeks...

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means he can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

How far along: 30 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 2lbs
Size of the baby: A Large Cabbage. 3lbs & 16in long.
Sex: All Boy!
Maternity clothes: Of course!
Sleep: Whats that???
Movement: All the time!
Food cravings: None really...
Food aversions: Again, none really...
Morning sickness: Nope...
Symptoms: Back pain, Achy hips, Peeing all the time, Started to get bloody noses and fainting spells. Found out I am severely anemic..
Labor signs: Been having some infrequent BH, nothing too serious.
Belly button in or out: In
What I miss: Seeing my toes...
What I'm looking forward to: My appt on tuesday!!!
Milestones: Making it to 30 weeks!!!

DJ's First Field Trip!!!

Today was DJ's first field trip of his school years! We went to the Pumpkin Patch. I love this place and have been going here since I was Reagan's age or even younger. When we got there, we found his class and of course he had to stand next to his friend Logan. After signing him in we just hung out till the hay ride!

Can you tell that DJ is super excited to be there?!?

Reagan... eh, not so much... She just wanted mommy and papa.

Sitting on the Hay Ride.. They loved it!!

DJ found his pumpkin pretty quick! I think that was the first one he picked up! 

This is the first one Reagan picked out, but a few minutes later she found a bigger and cleaner one.. lol

My beautiful Babies and their pumpkins!!! 

Sitting on the Hay Ride waiting for everyone to get back on so we can go back... 

Ready for lunch...

DJ had to sit next to his buddy Logan...

And then they played for a good hour...

Walking around in the hay maze...

Brother/Sister Hugs!!

I love my babies... It was pretty hard bending like that with a 30 week belly.. lol

My goofy boy!

She was in a pissed off mood because papa kept taking pictures of her....

Walking back to papa's truck...

The kids had a blast today! I can't believe we have DJ's first field trip in the books...

Enjoy the pics!

Today we went over to my dads and my sister had pumpkins for everyone to carve... So DJ, Reagan, Brittney, Yoey and I carved the pumpkins... Instead of the kids carving their pumpkins, we let them paint the pumpkins! DJ and Reagan were so excited to paint the pumpkins!!!

Reagan was so into painting her pumpkin, her tongue would stick out as far as it could go... hehehe {she sticks her tongue out when she concentrates}

She kept getting distracted by Dora though... lol

Can you see the excitement in his face?!?!?!

Here is DJ's finished pumpkin! He loves to paint and is very precise about picking colors and how he mixes them.. lol
Here is Reagan's finished pumpkin! {well, one side}

 and the other side....

{Allen's Pumpkin is almost finished, so I will post the picture of his when its done}

A New Chapter...

A week from today will be a very big day.. That is the day Dave gets his Vasectomy.

So, after Monday we will not be able to have any more kids naturally. I am actually really okay with this decision. At first I was a little sad because we couldn't have anymore kids but I realized that I have 2 very healthy children and our very big surprise baby due in January and love them very much. I am so thankful for these little lives Dave and I have created.

So Monday we start a new chapter in our family...

And I couldnt be happier...

Glucose Test...

This morning I went and had my Glucose Test done. Luckily I got the Orange Drink!

So they poked me and got 2 vials, drank the orange drink within 5 minutes, waited an hour and then got poked again...
After drinking it, Allen went crazy with a major sugar rush. I started to get a little woozy after drinking it but after a little bit I started feeling better.
I'm so glad this test is over! I am now home relaxing with my kids and getting ready to watch The Princess & The Frog =)
Hope everyone is having an amazing monday!!

29 weeks...

Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.

How far along: 29 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 1lb

Size of the baby: A Butternut Squash. 2 3/4lbs and 15.5 inches.

Sex: All Boy!

Maternity clothes: Loving my maternity clothes!! I just need to get some jackets/sweatshirts that will fit around my belly now.. lol

Sleep: forget about it!

Movement: all the time. He likes to wedge himself up in my ribs on my right side and kick me.

Food cravings: hot dogs, chili, french toast.. anything that will bring on heartburn :(

Food aversions: nothing right now

Morning sickness: nope.. thank goodness that is gone.. {for now}

Symptoms: Achy back and lots of hip pains..

Labor signs: Lots of braxton hicks and a few mild contractions.

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: seeing my feet and sleeping

What I'm looking forward to: My appt on the 2nd!!!

28 weeks... Hello, 3rd Trimester!!!

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels. He can blink his eyes, which now sport lashes. With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

27 weeks....

This week, He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother him, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

How far along: 27 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 0lbs gain/30lbs loss
Size of the baby: A head of Cauliflower. 2.3lbs & 14.6inches
Sex: BOY
Maternity clothes: oh yes
Sleep: not much
Movement: lots and lots
Food cravings: nothing too extreme
Food aversions: nah...
Morning sickness: nope
Symptoms: achey back & hips and my feet are killing me.
Labor signs: no
Belly button in or out: In
What I miss: nothing much
What I'm looking forward to: my next appt!
Milestones: had my baby shower yesterday!
