23 week bumpdate

23 weeks!! somewhere in the 5th month (depending who you ask lol). Every day I feel like the pregnancy is taking f.o.r.e.v.e.r. but then each week it feels like its flying by. Funny how pregnancy works like that. 

How far along? 23 weeks and 1 day
Baby's size? a grapefruit
Total weight gain: not sure, but that last week or so I can not get full and feel like I'm eating constantly. I have my next appt. on Friday and Im sure I will have gained enough to make up for barely gaining anything the first half of the pregnancy :(
Maternity clothes? oh yes...and Im totally ok with it. 
Best moment(s) this past week: My birthday last week, and taking Hudson to daybreak lake over the weekend. 
Miss Anything? energy still. While I do have moments where I have some energy for the most part I could probably lay down all day and be totally ok with it ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat. hamburgers still. I can eat meat as long as its on/in something. But I cant just have like a piece of chicken or something. 
Cravings: Cereal. 
Labor Signs: nope
Gender: little man
Symptoms:  Things have been better lately :) ....knock on wood....but I haven't had very much cramping/pressure/braxton hicks. I haven't thrown up in a couple weeks. Its been nice! But I'm starting to get heartburn. Here and there through out the day and once I lay down in bed its horrible! Thank goodness for tums. 
Belly Button in or out? in-between. Already!
Wedding rings on or off? off. :( I can wear it for a minute, but my fingers start to swell really bad.
Happy or Moody most of the time: mostly happy. But have my moody moment. still. lol
Looking forward to: Fall. I get to hot as it is, so being preggers in 95+ degree weather sucks. Im ready for boots and sweaters 
How is Hudson doing?: still being the best big brother ever :) He still asks about Porter alot. He usually names his toys Porter too. Its cute!

23 weeks! and feeling huge

My birthday :)

all dressed up for our friends wedding

Farm Fun

Decided to take Hudson and my sister Jaida to Wheeler Farm the other morning. Hudson was having a blast!! We got there pretty early..by ten but it was SO hot. We were all sweating, I really wanted to let hudson explore the farm more but we only lasted about 30 min. I promised him that we would come back another day with daddy when it wasn't so hot. My prego but really can't handle this heat :(
At least little man had fun though. 

20 weeks...officially half way with both my boys ;)

we were getting ready to leave and I said we could see the cows again on our way to the car. He was so excited he ran right to them.

20 week bumpdate

We are officially at the half way mark. Such a great feeling, I can almost start the count down ;) almost.  
Last week was the anatomy scan (at 19 1/2 weeks). I was so nervous going in, I think every mom is. But everything looks GREAT!! Our ultrasound technician was amazing. She explained everything to us, told us some of the technical terms which was interesting. Hudson came with us, and she was so sweet with him. He loved hearing the heartbeat so she let him listen 3 times & gave him his own special picture of baby Porter. Little man came in weighing 12 oz. Almost a whole pound!! I sometimes still think of him as a tiny grape in their. Im starting to feel him almost every day. It still make me nervous because its not very often, and usually only at night. They are the lightest little movements to so I really have to be paying attention. Sometimes though when I'm laying down Tanner will feel my belly and we can see where he is laying. I loved doing that with hudson, and excited to get to do it all again.

How far along? 20 weeks 2 days
Baby's size? a banana
Total weight gain: last week at the anatomy scan I was up 3 lbs. Which puts me 2 lbs above pre-prego weight. Doctor isn't concerned at all...and Im hoping to keep the total weight gain around 30 ish lbs or so. fingers crossed. (you may remember me mentioning last time I gained 51lbs..so 30lbs sounds amazing lol)
Maternity clothes? Yes :) some normal clothes still fit. Thankfully my summer shorts still fit, I didn't want to waste any money shorts since ill be pregnant most of the fall/winter.
Best moment(s) this past week: the anatomy scan. little man looks great! 
Miss Anything? energy. Im slowly getting more energy, but I feel bad for mister Hudson that I can't take him on as many walks or park trips since im tired and can't handle the heat well.
Movement: usually 1-2 times a day.  
Anything making you queasy or sick: just the though of a hamburger. gross. 
Cravings: Ice cream.
Labor Signs: nope
Gender: little man
Symptoms:  things have actually been pretty good this week :) a few aches/pains and headaches. But for the most part im feeling a lot better. My mom took me to see dr stockwell and I know that helped a ton. 
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? off. :( I can wear it for a minute, but my fingers start to swell really bad.
Happy or Moody most of the time: mostly happy. But have my moody moment.s 
Looking forward to: my birthday on the 17th :)
How is Hudson doing?:still doing great. he talks about Porter every day. The other day we took Hudson to the aquarium and surprised him. We wouldn't tell him where we were going. When we asked where he though he said "to meet baby porter" it was adorable. Thankfully though, he was ok that we weren't meeting him yet. He was stoked for the aquarium.
