baby williams #2: 28 week bumpdate.

How far along? 28 weeks... and officially in the third trimester! 
Total weight gain/loss:
i haven't been to the doctor since my last update. but according to my scale at home, i'm still around the same +5 or so.
maternity clothes? still a mixture... maternity bottoms (loving these black skinny jeans from loft) and and i'm loving that i can still wear some of my non-maternity tunics and dresses.
 Stretch marks? not any new ones. i've started using honest company's belly balm because my skin has been a little itchy some nights, but overall things are looking good.
Sleep: is going okay. i still fall asleep pretty easily, and hug a pillow for belly support but i've had to get up a lot more often to go to the bathroom, which is frustrating. i've also had a little more acid reflux at night the past week or so, but still nothing like how it was with Carter.
Best moment: ordering a stocking with Lawson's name on it... so crazy to think that this time next year, we will be a party of four! i've also had fun filling in Lawson's baby book about my pregnancy so far.
 
Miss Anything? not being out of breath when i get to the top of the stairs ;) i keep thinking at least they make me get some exercise in daily! and i can tell that i am getting tired quicker now, my to-do list usually outlasts my energy level, which is tough this time of the year because i want to get all the things done!
Movement: LOTS of movement going on... i can see it from the outside now, which is crazy!

Food cravings: chick fil a breakfast has been a constant throughout this pregnancy... as well as cereal, and lately i've been more into shakeology again and having that for lunch often. i can tell it has made a difference in how i feel, too! i've been cooking more as well, lots of soups and comfort foods.
Anything making you queasy or sick: i've been fighting some congestion- i think just due to the weather change, and sometimes it makes me feel a little yucky.
Have you started to show yet: definitely.
{27 weeks before baby boot camp}
Gender prediction: it's a boy!
Labor Signs: nope.
Belly Button in or out? in.
Wedding rings on or off? on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: pretty happy.
Looking forward to: working on the nursery and our next ultrasound- though i think we have to wait until our 36 weeks for that.

baby williams #2: 25 week bumpdate.

 How far along? 25 weeks... my plan was to do an update last week {with 3 weeks between each post... but the week got away from me and i'm just now sitting down to do it!}
Total weight gain/loss:
i'm now up 4.5 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight.
maternity clothes? my pants are maternity, i've decided that i like the short band better (i wore more full panels my last pregnancy) i just ordered these olive skinnies from the loft and they're my favorite- SO soft and comfortable! i've been wearing some maternity dresses... i especially like this one that i wore to georgia/florida game. and for tops, i've mostly been wearing non-maternity, loose tunics/piko tops.
 Stretch marks? not any new ones. i've started using honest company's belly balm because my skin has been a little itchy some nights, but overall things are looking good.
Sleep: i'm still pretty tired, so sometimes i nap when carter does and i fall asleep pretty easily at night, only waking up a few times to use the restroom. i'm so glad that the heartburn hasn't bothered me like it did when i was pregnant with carter! {according to the wives tales, that means lawson is a bald baby... we shall see!}
Best moment: deciding on a nursery design and getting his bedding and accessories in the mail! {i'll do a post on it soon.} and greg teaching carter to "talk to the baby"... he puts his mouth right against my belly and mumbles or sometimes blows raspberries- so cute and funny
Miss Anything? not really.
Movement:
maybe i just don't remember, but i feel like he's a lot more active than Carter was at this stage {which is saying A LOT!} it often feels like he's standing up and tap dancing straight down.
Food cravings: i've wanted sweets a little more than normal- especially brownies...
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope, doing good there!
Have you started to show yet: yes. so far i've had two strangers mention the baby- a lady at publix {who was telling carter that he needed to walk so i didn't have to carry him on my hip when his little brother or sister came- she was being sweet, not rude.}... and the man sitting in front of me at the georgia/florida game, who stared at me for a while {assuming he was making sure i was pregnant first} and then asked when i was due.
Gender prediction: it's a boy!
Labor Signs: nope.
Belly Button in or out? in.
Wedding rings on or off? on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: pretty happy.
Looking forward to: we're trying to figure out if and when we can take a babymoon... this time of the year is just SO busy! hoping to get something planned in the next few days, even if it's just a mini-trip for a night or two away.
