34 week belly pic!

34 weeks...going on 35! (weird shadow makes my hair look big on top... but doesn't offset the belly growth...haha. Mom does need a haircut though.)

                              31 weeks                                                    23 weeks

                              20 weeks                                                    17.5 weeks 


13 weeks

We've had our last baby shower. I think we have just about everything we are supposed to need for this kid. Dr. says everything is moving along great...both Mom & baby are healthy and right on track. I get tired, toss and turn occasionally at night, my arms fall asleep at times, and recently the squirmy worm likes to kick me in the back, sending shooting pain down my sciatic nerve pathway! (fun when walking really)... but I know that it comes with the territory. 

Things I'm looking forward to...besides the little guy and all the cuddly cuteness of course...
  • laying/sleeping on my back and/or stomach
  • being able to breath during exercise
  • a good vigorous workout & a getting back to running (can't wait to race again...feeling another sprint Tri coming next summer)
  • getting on my skates for a little Thursday night jam skating with my derby chicks

Things to do in the upcoming weeks: 
  • finish my holiday stuffs! I have been very busy crafting up fun creations and I only have 1 week until our family get together and 2 weeks until Christmas
  • pack the hospital bag
  • get the car seat in the car
  • finish organizing the nursery including lots of laundry for the little guy
  • and various miscellaneous items that are sure to pop up
The next 6 weeks are going to fly by. He could arrive early. He could make a late appearance. We just really don't know when he'll be here...but with just 5 weeks and 4ish days to go (give or take) he'll be here before we know it.

I'm Pregnant-Don't Comment on My Weight

I am now 30 weeks pregnant with my second child. I'm excited...I'm over this pregnancy though. I'm sure several of you can relate. I now have an inquisitive, adventurous and busy 2.75 year old running around. It's been a hot summer. I hate the humidity. I'm glad we are only a few days away the official start of Fall. AND I'm ready to say F you to anyone else who feels it appropriate to comment on the additional weight I have gained during this pregnancy.

Before having Augie, I was in the best shape of my life. I exercised daily-vigorously. I ate healthy and cooked elaborate, fun meals. I had hobbies.

This pregnancy has been harder on my body and my brain. I started 10 lbs heavier, less fit, more sleep deprived and still searching to find a balance between being a Mom, maintaining a strong relationship with Andy and being the best in my work life as possible.

I've been to the Dr. plenty of times - Had plenty of ultrasounds - Had potential gall bladder pains/…

Roller Derby Shower!

This is me, Sinful Sally, on skates just over a year ago. My last bout, before hanging up my skates for retirement, was in August 2010.

This is me now...

Today was the roller derby shower, hosted by my derby chicks that I used to spend 2-4 nights a week and numerous weekends every month.  I miss seeing them so often. And after skating a bout last night and staying out late to party, they made the baby shower a day to remember. It was, over the top, fantastic and a blast.

We played lots of games:

The baby picture game...bring your baby picture and try to pick out who is who. The draw what the baby will look like...using a paper plate on top of your head. The diaper game...split into teams of three, take one roll of TP, create a diaper as fast as you can with the WHOLE roll.

The name that tune (title and artist) with 17 songs which have the name Baby or Babe in the title. 

Turbo Trixie made a boat load of phenomenal food (I should have taken pictures: artichoke dip, homemade pretzels, mea…
