Hi guys! Since I haven't been updating regularly, I thought I'd give you guys a bump update :). Here are all my belly pics from the past few weeks up until today...

I am 34 weeks and 1 day today! I am officially 6 weeks from my due date!!! I am soooooo happy I cannot even contain my excitement ♥
On Wednesday teddy and I went to our weekly NST and ultrasound appointment. We had a big scare that day that really made me see how much this little guy already means to me. When they were doing the ultrasound and taking measurements, I noticed there was something off in the wave that measures the oxygen going to his little brain. I noticed it had a periodic under-dip that it never has. I didn’t say anything but the nurse came in about 5 minutes later and told me that the Dr. wanted to see me and re-do the test because it looked like the baby wasn’t receiving enough oxygen to his brain and that if that was the case they might have to send me to L&D and deliver me :( We waited for about 10 minutes for the Dr. to come in…it felt like an eternity! Luckily, the Dr. gave us good news. He said everything looked great. He said sometimes the baby kicks while they are running the test and it causes the test to come out this way. Phewww!!! I was sooo scared. I am glad we are ok and it was just a scare…

How Far Along: I am 34 weeks and 1 days.
Size of the baby: according to babycenter, he is almost 5 lbs!!!
Total Weight Gain: 35 lbs :(
Movement: we are convinced he will either be a kickboxer or soccer player. He gets pretty wild in there lol.
Sleep: Not really. My back aches and my stomach feels like it’s gonna burst.
Symptoms: heartburn. waaahhhhh.
Stretch Marks: teddy noticed 2 stretch marks in my lower tummy last week :(
Gender: It’s a boy!
Labor Signs: some contractions here and there but nothing too painful…yet.
Maternity Clothes: I only bought 2 pairs of shorts and like 3 tops.
Cravings: what don’t I eat!!! lol
Belly button in or out: semi-out.

8 months!

How Far Along: I am officially 32 weeks!!! Which means only 8 weeks to go :)
Size of the baby: don’t know but according to babycenter he should be almost 4 lbs... :)
Total Weight Gain: 33 lbs as of yesterday :/
Movement: he gets pretty crazy in there these days...
Sleep: Not really. I have to get up 3-5 times to go pee :(
Symptoms: fatigue...lots of it.
Stretch Marks: nope :)
Gender: It’s a boy!
Labor Signs: not yet...
Cravings: sweets. Unfortunately I was told to stay away from sugars and starches as of yesterday because I am gaining weight too fast :/
Belly button in or out: It’s somewhat out but not really.

Yesterday I had my dr. appointment and everything looked good, but I am gaining weight very fast. The dr. said to stay away from sugars and starches - so no juices, breads, sweets, and even fruits!!! Bummer. Today I went in for my weekly NST and ultrasound. Little mini bear is looking super healthy :) he is a chubster!!! I love him sooooo much. He has his little arm tucked under his head. I can't wait for him to be here!!!

San Diego

Omg it's been sooooo long since I last updated. I feel like such a terrible blogger :(

Our trip to San Diego 2 weeks ago was just lovely. We started off by doing lunch early Friday in San Juan Capistrano as we made our way down. Friday night we walked downtown SD and came across some awesome finds (like that bug having a Corona and the Michael Jackson figurine). We then headed to Coronado Island for a beautiful walk. LOVE. We ended the night with a swim followed by dinner.

Saturday we had a quinceanera to go to and Sunday was spent with family.

Overall it was a great trip and I can't wait to go back <3

27 weeks of bump.

The past week has been very exhausting. Last weekend I didn't feel much movement from baby B. Naturally I was sooo nervous and worried. Monday morning I called my doctor. I was hoping she would tell me it was all normal and not to worry. Instead she told me to go to L&D and get it checked out. Luckily, baby looked fine on the monitor. His heartbeat was normal and everything was fine. I had two contractions in the hour I was there but I didn't feel them (weird). Tuesday and Wednesday I was back and forth from my doctors office to L&D to the specialist. I like that they all go the extra mile just to be on the safe side and make sure that baby B is ok, giving me some peace of mind. 

All that said, we have hit the 27 week mark guys! This means we will be a full 7 months next week, which is amazing news if you ask me. I cannot wait to meet my little guy. That will sure be the happiest day of my life. For now, here are the things that are making me smile:

1. My 27 week bump
2. Looking at the 26 week/4 day bump picture and seeing a tiny bit of growth this week
3. Being included in the arts & crafts for my baby shower (love love love)
4. Rainy cozy mornings in bed, staring at our newly built crib!!! (yes we finally built it and it's all ready for baby B!!!)
5. My long wavy brown hair (yay for prenatal vitamins!)
6. Early mornings after a storm. The sky just looks soooo lovely.

Happy weekend friends!

and the bump keeps a' growin'...

Baby Bumpin'

Here I am bumpin' at 26 weeks. Yikes. This baby is growing oh so fast. But that makes me a happy girl because it means he will be here very very soon (not too soon though, I need him to fully bake before he comes out of the oven)

 Baby Bumpin'
Here we are at 25 weeks 3 days. Getting ready for a pizza dinner with teddy, teddy's parents, sister and sisters bf. It was a good night. Then again, when is it NOT a good night when you're eating pizza, right? :)

Our Room
 Teddy and his dad worked on giving our room a total face-lift to welcome baby B. (oh yes, we have a name for baby!!! buutttt we will not share it until baby is here. sorry guys! lol) The room is all painted and ready to go. All we have to do now is build our new bed, build the crib, and put everything back in order :) I am soooo excited!!!

Baby's Clothes
  Yesterday, I spent all morning de-tagging all of baby B's clothes that we have got him over the past weeks (there were literally mountains of clothes everywhere!!!). I decided to wash them now as we will be super busy these next couple of weeks. Baby B's wardrobe is super super cute and I have a feeling it will only get cuter...*sigh*

Other than that, we have been up to pretty much the same ol' stuff. Our lives are pretty much on an "all things baby" phase and we are loving every minute. We are also super excited for a few things coming up:

*prenatal classes (which started this week and teddy and I LOVE them)
*our San Diego trip later this month
*teddy's bday!!!
*baby shower in early November. meep.

Life is good. Happy Friday.

Life these days...(25 weeks)

25 week bump

The past week has consisted of growing this lovely bump of mine. That's right. I am now 25 weeks!!!! Which means only 15 to go...time is sure flying by. More hair growing...230472340 snuggle sessions with little mister Indy ( i love that guy)...and eating like there is no tomorrow (i must admit, i am a fatty at heart).

So there you have it, our days have been pretty darn lovely over here...we are now in the process of planning a baby shower (well not me, Teddy's mom and sister Jackie are) - they are just the sweetest ever!!! I cannot wait to share pictures of that day with you all.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Bump @ 6 months :)

A little Q+A...

Hi guys! After looking at Nardia's blog. I got inspired to do a little Q&A with you all. If you guys haven't yet, please head over to her blog. She is another mommy-to-be and you will love keeping up with her journey.

So here we go...

How Far Along: today we are officially 6 months (24 weeks)! we are pretty excited over here!!!
Size of the baby: a little over a pound and around 13.5 inches according to babycenter.com
Total Weight Gain: do we really need to go there? ok, ok. I am weighing 144 lbs. This means I've gained around 16 lbs total. yikes!!!
Movement: Danny and I both think our little mini bear is going to be either a soccer player or a kickboxer. His kicks are all types of crazy strong. He has his quiet days but when he kicks, he kicks!!! But I love it so much when he does. *sigh*
Sleep: crazy. I can no longer sleep a whole night straight. Between tossing and turning and the zombie trips to pee land, I am exhausted every morning these days.
Symptoms: have been dealing with some heartburn these past weeks. It's a bit better now thank God. I hope it stays that way.
Stretch Marks: none...yet. My tummy is starting to get a terrible itch now but I try to stay moisturized with my butter cream and not scratch.
Gender: It’s a boy! We are beyond excited for our little guy.
Maternity Clothes: Just bought 2 pairs of shorts because the heat  here in California is too much these days and I need something stretchy and comfy. Other than that, I've been living in maxi dresses and loose tees. :)
Cravings: ice cream!!! who knew! I've never been one to crave sweets or anything like that but these days, I swear by it. That and chili cheese fries. Johnny Rockets, you have my heart.
Belly button in or out: it's still in. But slowly it's stretching out and trying to pop out. For some odd reason, that super creeps me out :(
Baby Shower: we just started planning it. We have set the date for November 10 so it's  not too close to the holidays. I am super excited and so is Danny. We already picked a theme but will be keeping it a secret so it's a surprise to all our guests. Let's just say it will be different and super cute. Nothing cheesy or gender specific. 

Happy Thursday to you all!!



6 months!!!

the last couple of weeks have consisted of many randoms. we have been shopping more for baby (it's our new addiction over here), fulfilling crazy cravings, reminiscing on old times, and fighting a killer heartburn that landed me in the E.R. last week (not fun!!!)

but we really can't complain. life is good. our baby is growing oh so fast and by the looks feel of it, he will be a handful. i mean, his kicks and punches are non-stop. but i love it. i really really do. 
it is our way of bonding and his way of letting mommy know that all is good in that little dwelling of his.
i seriously cannot wait until January. i want him here now. his little feetsies. leggies. babyrolls.gaaahhhh. just everything!!!

Happy Wedsnesday.
