32 weeks: Pregnancy Update

Time is ticking and I am having a hard time trying to enjoy the rest of this pregnancy and not wishing it was March.  I am very big, but it just appears that I am bigger because I am very short.

- I am having a boy and hubby and I are still pondering the right name.  I hope we reach a conclusion soon!  Right now we like Emery, Titus, Jonah, and a few others.  We know the middle name will be Lee, a name that runs in men in my hubby's family.

- Blessed that my sciatic nerve has not been bothering me.  Bummer is my hips and pelvic area has had a lot of pressure so instead of lower back ache my hips ache and my pelvic area hurts.

- My daughter keeps asking when her brother will be here so she is ready!

-My measurements of my belly are good, heartbeat is good.

- I have gained 15 pounds so far, I think that is great!  :)  My goals is to not gain more then 25!  Got to keep an eye on what I eat for the remainder... don't want to allow myself to get every craving I have.

-My house seems organized and ready for baby which gives me relief.

-I do need to go bra shopping... things are not fitting!  One thing I can NOT handle is being uncomfortable.  I should also look for a couple good nursing bras too.  I think its about time Victoria's Secret starts to sell nursing bras!

-The waddle is very present and I will just giggle at myself.

-Selah keeps telling me she wants to help feed her brother and help change his diapers.  She is going to be a great mama helper and a super duper big sister.  She also has been saying "I dont want my brother to bite me."  Not sure if someone has bitten her or if someone said babies bite??

-I feel extremely blessed and very excited to meet this little blessing.

-This boy is 10 times more active then Selah ever was.  I could probably feel him moving and kicking 100 times in an hour.  He just loves to tumble around, but I am sure it is getting to be a bit tight inside so he wont have much room soon.

-My belly button never popped with my daughter and it appears right now that my belly button is disappearing but I hope it does not pop.  We will wait and see. It is very itchy every day and I lotion it several times but skin is stretching.

-Still rejoicing over 0 stretch marks... even my husband has gotten some stretch marks during this pregnancy.  LOL

- I do have some nasal congestion that does not seem to want to go away.

Here are my 32 week pictures:

Oh and VS does sell nursing bras just not many to choose from and you have to order them online :D

Wow, you look great!! I can totally relate to being short. When I was pregnant with my daughter it seems like every pound showed on me like 10 pounds, what I would have given to be taller while I was pregnant! Good luck with the remainder of your pregnancy!!

One thing I used when I was congested while pregnant was Vicks. I would rub vicks on my feet at night before going to bed and then put on socks. It worked for me and I was super excited since I didn't wat to take any medication while I was pregnant. You might give it a try!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
