37 Weeks Belly Pics

The countdown continues. We have just 3 weeks to go...or 4 if you talk to my sister who so lovingly reminded me that it could be longer. Thanks Boo...(sarcasm inserted here). I've hit the uncomfortable stage, but have had a relatively mild pregnancy, so honestly it doesn't bother me that much. I do make a lot more noises these days when getting dressed, taking off socks/shoes, moving around in bed. It's kind of funny and really weird at the same time.

The room is ready. Just trying to figure out a place for everything. The bag is mostly packed for the hospital...little outfits ready for the little man, snacks for Dad and the list of accessories to grab on the way out the door. This weekend that will be completed as well as the car seat will be installed so we can have our safety check done some time this week. And we're still getting some other house stuffs in order as well (as I type Andy & Dad are working on projects and scheming more projects for the future).

I definitely feel like I look a little wider....And my head, to me looks larger...haha. Maybe it's just the hair (it's grown pretty long). And maybe I should have posed better for this pic...

These were at the end of the day. Which by the way I was exhausted. But that's the norm these days.

 I was going to put on the Life Aquatic shirt I've been wearing all along...but it was in the basement, and I was feeling lazy. I still don't have any stretch marks! whoo hoo. Those red marks are from the pants I was wearing ;-). Check out the side by side from 37 weeks back to 13.5 weeks! Amazing...

Little Dude will be here before we know it. I can't wait to lose a little weight. Now we just a wait while he grows a little chunkier. Hopefully we'll have some good rolls to squeeze in no time.

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/…

Going Gluten Free-Dairy Free

Over the past several weeks I've changed my diet drastically. The wee one is a gassy little man and as I have adjusted my diet, I've noticed things have changed for the better. There is a lot of information floating around about eliminating certain foods from your diet which can irritate babies digestive systems. The major players that can affect infants are dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, beans, broccoli, spinach, peanuts, and citrus fruits, among a few others. I have cut all of these out of my diet except for eggs. This means no cheese, greek yogurt and other good things that I love to eat....however I've noticed that with cutting these things out, not only is Augie's digestive system is mine. It's a win win. Of course I still miss eating a few of these things (specifically cheese, greek yo and peanut butter!), but I feel pretty good with the whole process. 
So, with undertaking this adventure we have embarked on some new dishes in the kitchen. We are still g…

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…
