Week 26

This picture is a little deceiving--I don't feel that big! However, this week definitely marks the beginning of the trek into "uncomfortably pregnant." I've got a little pillow nest set up in bed--a body pillow for my belly and a regular pillow to keep my ever-swelling feet elevated. Poor Jay--he doesn't get a whole lot of room anymore! There's lots of 2am half-awake screeching and shoving if I come back from the bathroom and find him on "my side." Luckily, I think he is too asleep to remember most of it.

Baby girl is kicking like crazy. Most of her movements are very obvious and pack quite a punch...she really likes my liver/ribs. Occasionally she does a belly-rocking move that makes me look down and think "Holy Cow--what is this going to be like at 8 months!"

Another week, another bump

This is right about Week 25. I'm not too particular about the counting. I'm not even sure what my "official" due date is, and I didn't exactly agree with it anyway! Babies come when they want to, so no use stressing about it--especially now!

I'm getting extra tired of 100+ degree days lately! I'm so ready for fall, cooler weather, and wonderful things like Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

I have started stocking up on baby clothes...apparently my parents and in-laws have been too! I hit the clearance racks at Baby Gap and Gap Maternity on a regular basis. I cant afford their regularly priced stuff, but I occasionally find a steal on sale! I picked up a ladybug sun hat a few weeks ago and found the matching ladybug swimsuit on the clearance rack today! So my little pile of baby stuff is growing...but I like to think I've restrained myself.

Little Noelle seems to be most active between 12-2am...this worries me a little. Let's hope she grows out of that habit. It's definitely when she is kicking like crazy, though!

Week 23 Bump Pic

I'm not really fond of this particular picture, but it will have to do!

In other news, the baby is kicking a lot lately--Jay can even feel her from the outside sometimes. She's found my ribs--the first time she did it really made me jump. Not painful, but not exactly comfortable, either...

Week 22 Bump Pic

It's been crazy lately, so I missed Week 21. Little Noelle has been kicking quite regularly lately! She seems to be most active as I'm going to bed. Let's hope that trend doesn't continue.
