27 weeks. Wow! My little men have had me so busy this summer, I haven't had much time to blog. I have a pregnancy journal that I'm keeping, and also I have been taking pictures. I just haven't had much time to sit and blog. I plan on blogging more though... I just need to set the time aside.
Next week I'll be 8 months pregnant with our third baby. Our baby girl! The boys are even more excited to have a sister. I thought for sure they would have wanted a brother. But, from the start they wanted a sister. When I asked them both what their thoughts were they said they already had a brother, and that it was time for a sister. AWE. Heart burst, right?
She is so loved already. The boys are constantly talking about her to others, they want me to buy her things all the time when we are out shopping, and they even bring gifts home for her when there out and about. They even helped me pick out a few things for her room. It's so adorable. Such good big brothers.
I have been hit with the heartburn streak, just like I had with the boys. I get heartburn every night. It doesn't matter what I eat. I always want something sweet. ALWAYS. A few of my favorite things to eat are: cinnamon bagels with extra cream cheese, cinnamon anything really, egg sandwiches, chicken dishes or chicken sandwiches, pasta, grilled cheese, juice, LOTS of water, chips, and CANDY. OH THE CANDY. I just don't buy it. If I buy it... I'll eat it all! SERIOUSLY. ALL. ha ha. In regards to drinks, I've really enjoyed a brand of flavored water called La Croix. DELISH!
All my pregnancies seem about the same. Pretty easy. However, this one is a little different. I don't know if it's because I'm literally running around all day with the boys (and plus it's summer so no school), if It's my third pregnancy, age, or what... But, I have developed "irritable uterus". My whole stomach region gets tight, and its super uncomfortable. I have to drink lots of water and try and lay down from time to time. Thankfully, Grant bathes the boys nearly every night, or I'll have Amelia help. But, during the day... It's only mommy.
I go to my OB tomorrow for my routine check up tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing our little girl. Tomorrow is Jake's 5th birthday, and we have lots planned... and one of those things is the kids coming with me! Good luck OB room. he he.
I'll update after the appointment. Until then, here are some pictures of the baby girl bump!
18.5 weeks on the fourth of July. Alexis is also 18.5 weeks, and Liz was 10.5 weeks. So fun being pregnant with friends. We will have a total of 8 kids between us.
