How far along: 26, almost 27 weeks

Gender: BOY! 

Maternity clothes:  Oh yes. 

Belly button in or out:  Still in.

Best moment this week: Getting to spend time with family for Easter/General Conference.

Worst moment this week: A massive headache at school on Friday.

Miss anything: Being able to tie my shoes easily.

Looking forward to: Finishing school in 2 weeks and moving into our new home in 3 weeks!

Here's a sneak peek:

23 weeks; baby is the size of a large burrito


How far along: 23 weeks

Gender: Boy!

Maternity clothes:  Yep. I've gotten used to wearing some of my favorite things over and over, but it's also fun to add in new pieces since my belly is getting bigger and bigger. 

Belly button in or out:  Still in, but continuing to get more and more shallow.

Sleep: Pretty good for the most part. 

Best moment this week: Welcoming my nephew into the world a few weeks early. Sort of a scary moment, but he is doing extremely well as is his mama. 

Worst moment this week:  Feeling just a tad overwhelming with everything we had to do this week and last week. Plus knowing how busy this month will be makes me a little stressed. 

Miss anything: Taking full breaths. All my organs and this baby are already pushing up into my lung space. 

Movement: YES! Little dude loves to move and squirm just like his older brother. Last night he was super active and kicking so much that David was able to feel it. With Everett, he hardly got to feel anything because Ev would stop moving as soon as anyone tried to feel. 

Cravings: All the sour stuff! Luckily Easter makes it easy to find lots of sour candy. 

Queasy or sick: Nope. Thank goodness.

Looking forward to: Getting closer and closer to graduating!

How far along: 19 weeks

Everett quote of the week: "Mama, you have a big belly!"

Belly button in or out:  In, but getting pretty shallow.

Sleep: Pretty good pregnancy wise, except getting up to use the bathroom. Most sleep issues are from the toddler waking me up. 

Best moment this week: Getting to see our beautiful baby boy on ultrasound. 

Worst moment this week:  Having a headache last all day at school. 

Miss anything: Being able to wear pants without it feeling uncomfortable on my belly. 

Movement: Yes! Lots of rolls and wiggles.

Cravings: Chinese food. But I haven't indulged the cravings as of yet. 

Queasy or sick: Nope.

Looking forward to: Hitting the halfway point!

14 weeks; baby is the size of a bicycle bell




How far along: 14 weeksish 

Gender: Unknown. Only 4 weeks till we find out. 

Maternity clothes:  Yes. I'll be posting a separate blog on some of my favorite basics. 

Stretch marks: Nope, but I really felt like my belly popped this week. 

Belly button in or out:  In.

Sleep: Alright. Except for the toddler insisting on waking up at 5:30 every morning. 

Best moment this week: Having a really good, productive few days at school. 

Worst moment this week:  Unfortunately, Sunday morning. 1 pm church is rough and Everett had a particularly tough morning. It was one for the books. 

Miss anything: Wearing whatever I want. It know it seems silly, but now is the time that my belly is big enough to be annoying to dress, but not super big that I want to accentuate it. 

Movement: I have had a couple times that I've felt a little something. 

Cravings: Homemade guacamole and chips

Queasy or sick: Nope. Thank goodness!

Looking forward to: More productive days at school. I'm getting close to being finished, which is exciting!

Maternity clothes:  Yep! But I am still stretching my current wardrobe and mixing in a few maternity pieces.
