Last set of belly pics


Time got away from me and I totally forgot to post the last couple of sets of belly pics. So here they are now…

36 Weeks








38 weeks






39 weeks




33 Weeks


So thus far I have made it to 33 weeks and see no end in site any time soon.

Still no signs of pre eclampsia, blood pressure has been great (under 120/72). A couple of weeks ago I had my iron levels tested and my hgb was an 8! Tuesday we retested and my iron levels went up but I dont know what too (Just two weeks after starting the supplement). Shauna called yesterday, excited saying it went up. I missed the call though so I didnt get the official number.

Baby is head down and on the far right side, so far over that my belly is very uneven.
Should look like this = O
Looks like this instead = C/

Belly pics from last week…









28 weeks, 4 years and a rashy child


Well I am officially at the 28 week mark which just so happens to be the farthest along I have ever made it in a pregnancy. Ian was born at 28 weeks on the dot, on a Saturday morning. My 28 week mark this time around was also on a Saturday. Still no signs of pre e although I did freak myself out over it this last weekend. We got a new bed last week (its memory foam, mmmm) and its helped my sleeping and back aches a ton. Jason went back to school this past Monday and Ian seems to be fine with it being just me and him during the day again. 

Here are some belly shots, click to enlarge. The first picture has Ians doll in it, its made to his exact measurments. I am guessing thats close to the size of the baby now (actually I can tell this one is bigger then he was).





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4 years ago Jason and I were married. Nothing spectacular, we didnt even have a picture taken. I love him more now then I ever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I thought Ian had hand foot and mouth disease a couple of weeks ago. Turn out that the rash spread everywhere and we never could figure out what it was. He didnt run a fever, he wasnt overly itchy, mood stayed the same as always. At any rate it he still has spots but they dont look all that bad.




Had an appointment yesterday.


Everythings fine, babys great. S/he kept kicking while Shauna was trying to get the heart beat. I still havent gained or lost a pound but I have grown 7 inches in the waist.

Blood pressure was good 112/73, babes heart beat was between 155-160 bpm. I am right on the dot as far as fundal height is concerend (26 cm). No protein or sugars are spilling, all is good. I am happy. Next appointment is September 14th.

On the other hand, Ian has hand, foot and mouth disease. Not worried about it at all, its only on his hands and feet. No fever and he seems to be acting like his normal self.

Heading to Amarillo tomorrow for my grandmothers birthday party. Jason and Ian are staying home, so it will be just me.




26 Weeks


So as most of you all know I am pregnant, 26 weeks. I have been meaning to update here just so everyone that cared could read about me, Ian, Jason and the babe. 26 weeks later and I am finally posting a blog. Lets just say I had been busy all that time and in the last 2 weeks I have had some more time to be online.

I will start with saying that we are not finding out the sex. We had one ultrasound early on to date me since I was 1 month off with Ian. Not planning on the babe being early BUT in case it is then I will definitely need to know a round about due date. Turns out I was right all along, got pregnant between Ians seizure and me having food poisoning (February was the month from hell). So my due date is between November 17th and the 21st. Once again, no more ultrasounds for us so we wont find out the sex until s/he is born.

The pregnancy has been a breeze compared to when I was pregnant with Ian. I was sick this time around but no where as bad as before and it went away right at the second trimester. My blood pressure has been great, usually under 116/70 and we take it every couple of days. I do NOT anticipate having pre eclampsia with this one, thus far it just feels different (meaning better).

I am just happy and positive about everything. I hate having to pee every couple of hours but it goes along with the territory.

Here are some belly shots from weeks 14 to 25

14 weeks

18 weeks

22 weeks




25 weeks

Hey, I am so very happy things are going so well for you guys this time around! It is simply fantastic!!! I hope that all things work out and you and your new babe are healthy and happy. You have a beautiful family already with lots of love, so this baby will be loved very much and is already. You are looking great too! Motherhood is natural on you. Ian, you have a very nice belly too.

Wow, you are really on top of things over there…what’s wrong with you? pregnant or something? Ian’s belly is hysterical! My belly is WAY bigger than your’s…of course that could have something to do with the some god awful 30+ lbs I’ve gained….bleh! I’m really excited that we are due so close together, but my blood pressure has been steadily rising so i doubt we will make it to November. I’m in the high 130’s over 80’s! Also, my doc told me that pre-E is less common in second time moms so I am crossing my fingers for you!!! Of course it turns out PIH tends to be a chronic pregnancy condition so my chances are slim that I wont end up with the BP issues again! Oh well…hopefully it wont be too severe! It sounds like you are doing really good,I’m glad to hear it! Keep it touch! p.s. I’m sitting at 28 weeks right now.
