Week 28

Written by Shannon Leigh


Week 28 was a little slower than the rest of my summer so far and I really enjoyed catching up on some things around the house.  I finally got around to sorting through Mister's clothes and baby toys.  I am so very grateful to my sister who very generously gave me her boys clothes.  I won't have to buy much of anything, which is awesome!
It's funny how different things are with baby #2.  It's also funny how GIRLY everything I have is.  Luckily the big stuff is gender neutral but all the little stuff is so very not.

I plan on working on blankets/bedding/various other projects over the next few weeks but we don't actually have a nursery since we are currently living in a 2 bedroom place.  My nesting bug is being squashed in a big way. C'est la vie.  It is what it is, I suppose.

My cheeks are getting much fuller these days which must means we are getting closer to meeting mister.  I am so ready to snuggle him in my arms and rub my lips on his perfect head.  Oh yeah and I'm ready to not be pregnant any more.  We've still got a long time to go!

Week 25-27

Written by Shannon Leigh

Mister and I are officially in the last trimester!

week 26
Week 25
Mister really started to roll around in my belly. He started to dance around constantly and wake me up in the middle of the night.  I don't remember Ruby waking me up in the night so I am super worried this little guy is a wild one.
Week 26
We spent all of week 26 in Charleston, South Carolina.  I seriously underestimated my discomfort level on the 14 hour road trip but we survived with zero accidents from a potty trained little girl and a pretty prego mama.  Fortunately on the way home he was kind enough to move out of my lungs and I was much more comfortable.  We had a lovely time in Charleston (hopefully I will post some pictures at some point).

Week 27
We entered the 3rd trimester this week and I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going!  I am really entering the nesting phase which is difficult since we are living in a temporary residence.  I am 

feeling quite unsettled and on shaky ground.  I know it's only temporary and I'm trying to just focus on what's really important instead of all of the "stuff."
Speaking of "stuff" we HAVE WALLS at least on the basement of the house.  We also have plumbing.  They are supposed to start framing this week- WOO HOO!
