28 Weeks

Pin It
Well, we skipped week #27, but that's ok because we were on a week long vacation to Utah!
It was so much fun going back 'home' and seeing a lot of our wonderful friends and family.
I feel like we crammed in everything we wanted to see and do, so huge success.
I was nervous about driving 10+ hours and being almost 7 months pregnant, but I was totally fine. 
Weight gain: I'm not 100% positive, I think 17 lbs...? I have an appointment next week, so I'll know for sure then. I will admit that since we were on vacation, there was a lot of eating out...so I know I gained something! :)
Maternity clothes? Not yet. I think I have ruled out all of my pants now though. :(
I'm a little bummed because with my first pregnancy I wore my same pants all the way until the end. All of my pants/capris still fit just fine everywhere except right under my belly where you button them up. Even when I wrap an elastic around the button, when I sit down they are a little uncomfortable.
I might have to give in and buy a pair of maternity capris...or wear a skirt everyday...we'll see I guess, I'm just taking it one day at a time!
Discomfort? Since we were running around doing so much last week, at the end of the day I had some pretty good back pain. After relaxing for a bit it would go away. Sometimes I forget how big my belly has gotten, and I try to bend over to pick something up, but my body quickly reminds me that I can't do that as easily anymore!
Events: I started doing 'kick counts' this week :) (You basically just time the baby to see how long it takes him to move/kick 5 times). Don't worry, my little guy hasn't gone more than 10 minutes, he is active!! :)

26 Weeks

Hello all!
Notice a change with the chalkboard this week?
I feel like I am not super creative in coming up with cute things to write on the chalkboard, and then it hit me...Why do I need to write anything besides how far along I am...?
I actually really like it with just the # of weeks.
Anyways, let's see how I've been doing...
Weight gain? I am up to15 pounds!
Maternity clothes? Nope. In the pants department I only have one pair left that still fit. I'm glad the weather has warmed up because now I can wear my super comfy/cute capris, somehow those still fit really well! Yay!
Events: I think this is my last week in the second trimester! That's crazy. I can now use my belly as a table when I'm sitting on the couch, and my son now lays his head on my belly as his 'pillow' when we are cuddling  watching tv. :)
 Discomfort? Oh my yes.
It's a good thing I try to always lay on my left side when I sleep because this little guy LOVES to push his feet out (hard) on my right side.
My Braxton Hicks contractions are stronger and occur a lot more often, so that's fun.
I must say I am so thankful to have had a healthy pregnancy so far, and I am loving every minute of bonding with this little one :)

Indoor S'mores

Pin It
Hello everyone!
Today I thought I would share with you one of my guilty pleasures.
S'mores.
I love them!
The only problem with S'mores is it's not every day I can make a fire and roast marshmallows... 
So, we started making them in our microwave...I needed a chocolate fix people!
I also didn't always have the larger marshmallows, or the Hershey chocolate bars, so I just started using what I already had in my baking cupboards...wow, that makes me sound like I was getting crazy desperate, but I needed something sweet. :)

Baseball Cookies

Pin It
Hello hello! I hope you are all doing well :)
About a week ago we had a carnival day/fundraiser for the baseball league that my son's team is in.
They had lots of fun activities for the families, and of course lots of yummy looking treats :)
I volunteered to bring some baked goods. I baked the sugar cookies the day before, making just simple circle shapes, but for some reason I left the decorating until the morning of...
I wanted to originally do super hero designs or something along those lines, (like these sweet Justice League/Captain America cupcakes I had made a few months ago), but since we were short on time I had to come up with something else.
My son suggested I make baseball cookies.
(I had a total 'duh, why didn't I think of that?' moment, I mean they were for a fundraiser for baseball teams after all!...Oh well, it made me proud to see him come up with that idea on his own)
I'm so glad he did, because these were SO easy to decorate!

24 Weeks

Happy Sunday everyone!
I feel like this pregnancy is just flying by :)
Weight gain: 12 pounds now!!
Discomfort: YES. :) I feel like this little one is constantly stretching out and he is just trying to use all of the space he has in there! I'm also waking up a lot through out the night, just to toss and turn, which doesn't help my energy levels throughout the day...maybe my body is trying to get me used to not getting a full nights rest...thanks body...
Maternity clothes? Not yet. But, we have been going swimming more often, I might need to invest in a new swimsuit...my current one might not cover my belly much longer... :)
Events: We had our glucose testing appointment this last week, and I'm happy to say all of the blood work came back great, yay! My adorable son went with me to the appointment and as always the doctor's office was so good at letting him feel included. They let him squirt the jelly on my tummy, and then gave him the little heartbeat monitor and let him find the heartbeat, it was so cute.
So everything is going really well!

Mombo Nursing Pillow Review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort and Harmony for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am currently pregnant with baby #2. It's been over 4 years since I was last pregnant, and there are so many new products out there for babies! I feel like I am almost starting all over again!
One of these newer products is the Mombo Nursing Pillow from Comfort & Harmony.

I was recently sent the mombo nursing pillow  and when I opened the box, there were a couple of things that stood out to me right away.
