Happy Mother's Day!

2.5 pound head of cauliflower in there!
 
Far Along?  27 Weeks, 6 Days!  Another week down (and another week closer to Ledoux!!)

Total weight gain/loss: I didn't weigh myself today- I was only able to work out 3x this week so I don't want to know... but I don't think I gained much (if anything).  Still +8 as of last week.
 
Maternity clothes? Loving Maternity shirts- and I think some of these shirts will be cute after Ledoux comes too!  They are so long and I can wear them with comfy leggings- it works perfectly.  Still no maternity pants which makes me happy.

Stretch marks? ZERO!

Size of Baby (in produce)?  Head of Cauliflower- 16 inches, 2.5 pounds or so.

Sleep: This week has been good- sleeping like a rock.  Yesterday I actually slept 11 hours!  I feel like I am entering my first trimester again because of how tired I have been... and the constant pee breaks are back.  Oyyy.  I really hate getting up 3 or 4 times at night to pee.

Best moment this week:  Officially committed to having a baby shower!  I was really unsure about having one- I just don't like the idea of having a bunch of people come over because they feel like they have to, and play a bunch of baby games.  Butttttttt we are having a Baby-que (complete with pre-mixed drinks in mason jars!) and will be bbqing and hanging out outside on a Saturday afternoon- now I am excited.  It will be a babyshower, but a fun one (that isn't lame!)  I really want people to WANT to come and have fun, and not feel like they have to come. So it will be less babyshowerish, and more fun party/hangout ish. And its not just for girls! Husbands and boyfriends can come too!  I just wish Lee was going to be here... :(  Now... I just need to get our yard in order, golly its a mess back there since Lee left.  Luckily, we are hiring a landscaper to clean it up!  My dear friend Heidi is the party planner, so i know we are in good hands!
For the Baby-Que!
 

Miss Anything? My honey.  Duhhh.  No real alcohol cravings this week, so I just miss Lee. 

Movement: Pretty much all the time.  She is getting stronger too- my belly is popping up and down alot.  This week, I was laying in bed on my back, and I was watching her (its my new favorite pastime, i call it playing with the baby) and like to wiggle my tummy to get her to move.  Well this week, she must have had her hand or her foot right beneath my belly button, because she kept kicking it (or punching) it over and over- all you could see was my belly button getting pushed up.  I was laughing hysterically- not sure if it was because i thought it was funny, uncomfortable, or freaking me out.  I suppose it was a combo of all of those. 
 
Food cravings: Nothing crazy this week- its been a pretty normal week in terms of food.

New Additions? I got the changing table pad and cover for Ledoux from Potterybarn Kids, its a nice light pink color and i like it.  Other than that, no other baby things.  I am waiting until after the baby shower to see what else we need and will start shopping then. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
 
Have you started to show yet:  For sure.
 
Gender: Girl!
 
Pregnancy related gripes? My back is taking a beating.  Actually, its my nerve- it has been awful this week.  On Friday, I could barely walk up to stairs to bed it hurt so bad.  Its hard to bend over, sit down, stand up- everything.  Today it is feeling better though.  I stayed off my feet all day yesterday and it feels so much better today.  I wasnt able to work out my full 4x this week though because of it.  Sigh.  I ordered a pregnancy pillow yesterday that I heard can help, fingers crossed!
Looks like heaven! Can't wait to try it out!

Labor Signs: No
 
Belly Button in or out? In
 
Wedding rings on or off? On
 
Happy or Moody most of the time: I was ok this week actually. I think my Tucson trip really helped me de-stress. 
 
Looking forward to: My Babyque!!!! Hooray!  And I am getting a 4-d ultrasound done that morning so we can see Ledoux's face (will she have a butt chin like her daddy, and a little pig nose like me?!)  We will see soon!

Other news?  My fabulous friends from work brought my flowers and made me card of Friday, AND they brought me to breakfast this morning (and more flowers!)!  So thankful to have them- it really made my week (probably my month actually!) THANK YOU!
