New Blog Design & Pregnancy Update

Um yea...sorry it's been so long since I've blogged. Aside from being pregnant, life has been completely crazy. We moved. It was painful okay...but I'm so glad we're done. We're doing our final walk-through this weekend and then we don't have to worry about it anymore. Moving while nine months pregnant is a blast...NOT. It's sad and I'm really going to miss our place, but we're moving on to bigger and better things. We're going to buy a house at the end of the year. Best decision for our new family.
Baby J is doing very well. He's cooked and ready to come out (PLEASE). The weather has been rather hot lately and my toes are so swollen they look like Vienna Sausages. So I continue to talk to my son and tell him to be a good little boy and come out this week :-)
 Also, if you haven't noticed, I have a new blog design! I love it and I'm so excited about it. Big thanks to Stephanie over at Dirt and Lace. She's an amazing blog designer and I highly recommend her!!

So, I'll be 38 weeks on Friday, and I'll hopefully try to update you then - along with a picture. Until then, here's some stats!
How far along? 37wks, 4days
Due Date? 7/27/2012
Total weight gain: Up 34lbs (157lbs total)
Sleep: What's that? I can't sleep at all anymore...mostly anticipation of little boy's arrival and the fact that I have to pee all the time
Best moment this week? Finishing up the baby's room
Movement? He still moves like crazy! Although his kicks are really strong and hurt most of the time
Food cravings? Still loving cereal - donuts, fruit and broccoli
Food aversions? Still not a lettuce fan (especially shredded lettuce)
Symptoms: A lot of pressure and the fact that it feels like he's going to fall out. A little cramping here and there but nothing to be concerned about


  1. I delivered my son at 37 weeks 4 days. :) Hope you get to meet your little one soon!

  2. So excited to get an update! I can't believe you're almost there. I hope things calm down for you guys these last few days before his arrival and I wish you all the best in a smooth and easy delivery!!!
