22 Week Bumpdate

It seems so unreal to be at 22 weeks pregnant!!! I know I say this every week and I sound like a broken record, but it is just going by so, so fast! We have a million things to get done for this little girl and haven’t started on one thing for her nursery! My perfectionist personality is having a really hard time dealing with this! I just want to knock it all out NOW and have it done! I know what you’re thinking, “take a chill pill Kimmy”, but I just cannot help it!  The plan is to really knock things out next month before the holiday busy-ness really hits us, and I am hoping that we can get a huge chunk of Emma’s nursery done by then.  For now, I will try not hit the panic button! LOL!!

So, let's recap week 21!

Symptoms:  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my symptoms aren’t really changing too much.  Acid Reflux and I are still besties, and minor back and leg cramps are hanging around too. I won’t complain because I guess a lack of symptoms isn’t really a bad thing!

Bumpdate:  The bump is getting B-I-G! I am wearing my belly band with all my pants now, and I am almost outgrowing the comfort of that.  Soon and very soon I will need some actual maternity pants.  Baby girl is getting bigger each day, but I love it!

Cravings:  This week I have been craving anything WATERMELON hard core! Someone commented on my weekly vlog last week that it may help with acid reflux.  Well it didn’t but it sure is delicious! I found this watermelon sherbet at the grocery store the other day and gobbled the whole pint down like in 2 days.  Shameful…yes, but delicious none the less!!! Honestly I am drooling thinking about it right now and I have no idea why!

What I'm looking forward to:  Working on her nursery and getting things in order for this little girl! I cannot wait to have her room together and have the piece of mind that the biggest chunk of what we need for her arrival is done.

Best moment this week:  Emma is moving SO much these days, it’s really fun to feel her kicking and punching in there.  It’s so sweet to feel her little movements! It is what I look forward to most every day!! She is super active any time after I eat, and then usually around 9ish at night.  I cannot wait to get to feel her movements on the outside.  Her Daddy is waiting to for her first “Hello!” kick, it’s pretty cute and I cannot wait for him to feel her little kicks!

21 Week Bumpdate

The weeks seem to be going by so fast and I just cannot believe it! Before I know it this beautiful baby girl will be here with us and that kind of freaks me out, and by kind of I mean completely! LOL!! I know we still l have more than enough time to get everything ready for her, but I feel like we have so much to do and I haven't even started any of it! Can time slow down for just a little bit more?!

So, let's recap week 20!

Symptoms:  I don't think that my symptoms are going to change too much in the near future.  All the same things that I have been dealing with, just keep sticking around.  Acid reflux, back aches, and leg cramps are just my best friends!!! 

Bumpdate:  I honestly feel like I am getting bigger each day! Even if that's not really the case, it kind of seems that way.  Baby girl is starting to take up more room in there, and it's kind of crazy to watch her grow in the belly! I know we are just a little over halfway there, but I cannot believe how big she is going to get.  Wowza!!!!

Cravings: I haven't really had any one thing that I have been craving this week. The only thing that sounded absolutely ah-mazing to me that I just had to make was homemade banana bread! I don't know if that was pregnancy related or just Kimmy related, but it's nice to have an "excuse" for the things I just have to have!   

What I'm looking forward to:  I really cannot wait to get to work on Emma's nursery!! I have everything picked out, we just need to start ordering it, painting it, and putting it together.  I just cannot wait to make her room the perfect place for our little princess!!

Best moment this week:  Emma's little nudges have turned into full on kicks and jabs!! They aren't super hard but they are definitely stronger than they ever have been.  It is so fun to start to realize her patterns of movement and really feel her moving around in there.  I cannot wait to start feeling her movements on the outside so she can give her Daddy a little "Hello" kick!!

20 Week Bumpdate

TWENTY WEEKS PREGNANT! How crazy does that sound? I cannot believe that I am halfway through this pregnancy already, the weeks seem to be just flying by.  Before we know it this beautiful little girl will be here with us, and that is so exciting, yet so overwhelming all at the same time.  I am anything but ready for her to get here! I just want to freeze time for a little bit so I can scramble and get everything together that we need for her! Only 20 weeks left....YIKES!! :)

So, let's recap week 19!

Symptoms:  Same old same with my "bestie" acid relux! We are just getting more acquainted with each other every day! LOL!! Acid reflux has been joined by their good friend, leg and back cramps, and we are just having a grand ol' time together.  Honestly, it really isn't all that bad, but it's not something I look forward to.  However, every little thing I deal with is so worth it! 

Bumpdate:  The belly is growing bigger and bigger all the time!!! Baby Emma is starting to take up more and more room each day.  I just can't believe that I am going to be getting a whole lot bigger than this! I feel big already! LOL! :)

Cravings:  Everything and anything sweet!!! This baby girl must have sweet tooth because I am loving desserts and anything sugary! 

What I'm looking forward to: I cannot wait to start to working on her nursery!! We have bedding picked out and I can't wait to paint and work on lots of projects for her room!!!!!! I have so many fun ideas and I just wanna get working on them.  It's going to be just darling!

Best moment this week:  Finding out that we are having a little baby GIRL!! We definitely both thought it was a BOY so we were very, very surprised but so thrilled!!! It is so wonderful to get to call her by her name, EMMA CHARLOTTE, and to really start talking about her in a more "real" sense since we get to really plan for her arrival now.  It's so cute to hear Scott talk about her and how he is already nervous because he knows she is going to melt his heart and wrap him around her little fingers.  I cannot wait to dress her up in big girly bows and outfits, and just smooch all over her sweet baby lips! I just cannot believe God has blessed us with a beautiful baby girl!

19 Week Bumpdate

19 weeks, seriously where is the time going?! I cannot believe in ONE week we will be halfway through this pregnancy! That is completely banana's to me! Nevertheless it is so exciting to be getting further along and in the next few weeks we will start prepping the nursery for this sweet little one! 

So, let's recap week 18!

Symptoms:  Well my old friend acid reflux is still around and kicking, but it has eased up a bit this week.  And by ease up I mean still being there but not every day...thankfully!!  The only other thing I have been having is leg cramps at night when I am trying to lay in one position in bed for a long time.  I am not sure if it's just the being still part that causes it, but that's the only time of the day I really get them. Thankfully this was an easy week for symptoms, well who I am kidding here this whole pregnancy has been fairly easy symptoms wise.  Praise God for that!!

Bumpdate:  Baby just keeps growing and growing! My pants are getting tighter in the belly and I pretty much wear my belly band with every single pair of pants now.  I am definitely going to need to stock up here soon on some maternity pants.

Cravings:  I have just been SO thirsty this week! Nothing food wise has been calling my name, but I just could drink juice, milk, or water all day long.  Maybe it's this random October heat wave that is causing it who knows?! 

What I'm looking forward to: Is it Friday yet?!! I can hardly stand that we are only TWO days away from seeing this beautiful little baby!!! I cannot imagine how adorable they must look now and I cannot wait to find out if we are on team pink or team blue.  I still think it's a BOY so we will see if my gut hunch is right! 

Best moment this week:  Feeling baby's movements getting stronger! I cannot wait for more consistent kicks and punches throughout the day.  I think I felt something close a kick the other day, but they are still more nudges than anything else.  Soon and very soon they will be announcing to the world that they are inside and active!
