Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 25 weeks 3 days

Size of Baby? About 14 inches long and just under 2 pounds. The size of a rutabaga. I hope he's cuter than that Rutabaga!

Gender? A boy Hayes ? Olson

Movement? He has set sleep and awake patterns. I feel him moving about every 3 hours.

Sleep? Still just great. They only time I lose sleep is if Chris is snoring or the dogs are barking!

Symptoms? I'm still getting upset stomachs and the doctor said that is perfectly normal because all your insides are moving out of the way to make room for baby. I have also been a little nauseous this week and have thrown up a couple of times, not sure what that is all about.

Cravings? Still no cravings, thank goodness I'm not wanting sweets! I have my glucose test in a couple of weeks and I just hope I pass.

Best Moment of the Week? Getting to see another ultrasound of Hayes. He cooperated much better this time. Mom and I got to see lots of cute movements. He looks like he is going to have my short upper lip and Chris's shoulders and barrel chest. I also found out that he is positioned head down and his head is all the way down at my cervix which would explain all the pressure. Also when I got weighed at the doctor I am down a total of 7 pounds! Woohoo go me!

I promise I will take a picture and post it soon!

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 23 weeks 4 days

Size of Baby? About 11 1/2" long and 1 1/4 pounds. The size of an eggplant.

Gender? A boy. Hayes Olson

Movement? He is definitely in there squirming around! My mom actually got to feel him moving last night.

Sleep? No problems, most nights I don't even get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

Symptoms? I have had an upset stomach this week. I'm not sure if it is caused by all the movement or maybe Braxton Hicks? Or maybe a stomach bug?

Cravings? No cravings. Most of the time food doesn't sound very good.

Best Moment of the Week? I love that not only I can feel him moving around in there, but other people can from the outside too!

Wee Bit of me Wednesday

I thought it would be fun today to join in with Leigh Ashley and do a wee bit of me wednesday

{one} what was one thing that you valued when you were a kid?
I don't think I valued too much as a kid. That wasn't something I really thought about I would say I more took for granted than valued. But looking back I value all the family get togethers we used to have, and my grandparents. They used to have property at Birch Bay and the whole family would go there every weekend.

{two} what was your favorite (+ lease favorite) subject in school?
I loved US history, and I strongly disliked English

{three} do you remember your first love?
Unfortunately yes

{four} what one pet would you love to have?
A teacup Morkie, one so tiny it would fit in the palm of my hand

{five} would you rather live in the country or in the city?
For sure the country. If I didn't have a job and hardly ever had to leave the house I would love to be a hermit up in the hills

{six} what do you love about blogging?
Right now having a journal to keep track of being pregnant

{seven} what is the first website you visit everyday?
Yahoo and read my email.

{eight} will you or have you joined google+?
I don't know what it is.

{nine} what is your favorite scent of candle/air freshener?
My brother got me a Slatkin candle in pine or something and it smells so good! My husband loves it too, imagine that, since he is an arborist

{ten} how would you describe your style?
I think my style is country, redneck, contemporary and definitely comfy!

Pregnancy Highlights and a picture!

How far along? 22 weeks 4 days

Size of Baby? 11 inches the length of a spaghetti squash? Don't think I've ever had one, or if I have, I definitely didn't buy it. haha. He weighs about 1 pound (what a bruiser)

Gender? A boy. Hayes Olson

Movement? Hayes has a schedule I can feel him moving around a lot every 2-3 hours. I have tried counting the movements and I definitely get 10 in a short amount of time.

Sleep? I still sleep great. My belly isn't very big, so it doesn't stop me from getting a good night's sleep.

Symptoms? I feel good this week, no pains or anything.

Cravings? Still not having any cravings. Igor is still bringing me raspberries and Ian brings me some veggies. Thank goodness for those guys, because I haven't been to the grocery store in well over a month.

Best Moment of the Week? Feeling Hayes move all the time, I really know he is in there!

And without further adieu a picture of the baby bump. This picture was taken Sunday 7/31/2011
