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

Wish I could say I have only gained 15 pounds!!!!!!

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!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
