How far are along are you?:
22 weeks tomorrow! 

Do you have a name picked out? Care to share 🙂 ?:

It’s most likely going to be…. Andrea Raquel Lee (pretty set on Raquel, but not Andrea)

What are you loving about your pregnancy?

Goodness.. not much this time around. Having been recently diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and breaking out like a teenager, I can’t say I’m too thrilled. I swear I’m starting to waddle when I’m tired too..

Have you started decorating a nursery? Do you have a theme picked out?

Not yet. Baby’s gonna have to share the room with her 6 year old brother until we find a bigger place. Still have to figure out how I’m gonna pull that off. No theme yet either. I expect it to be pretty girly for her side of the room though

Anything you’re currently researching about pregnancy/newborns?

Just this Gestational Diabetes I have.. risks, recommended diet, etc..

Are you feeling kicks/punches? Can SO/FI/DH feel them yet?

I feel them, but not consistently yet. I have a dopper to reassure me when she’s not that active. FI can’t feel them yet.

Is your belly button shallowing yet? Or really deep inny?

Still an inny. It was pretty deep to begin with. With my first pregnancy, it never popped out, just flattened hehe

Are you planning to get Maternity Photos?

Not sure about that.. depends on the price and how I feel about how I look as I get closer to the 3rd trimester. Definitely going to get newborn photos though.

How far are along are you?:
20 weeks 3 days!

 

Do you have a name picked out? Care to share 🙂 ?:

We do finally have a name picked out!! We probably won’t share on the boards/blog though! 🙂

What are you loving about your pregnancy?

I’m loving feeling baby boy move around a lot! I can’t wait until Mr. D can start to feel him move as well!!!

Have you started decorating a nursery? Do you have a theme picked out?

We are doing a dinosaur theme! So excited! We bought our first nursery item today!

Anything you’re currently researching about pregnancy/newborns?

Nothing much right now. We are taking a newborn care class in November, and I have a follow up ultrasound on Tuesday regarding a potential problem with Baby boy’s heart, so if that comes back bad again, I’ll probably start researching that!

Are you feeling kicks/punches? Can SO/FI/DH feel them yet?

Lots of kicks and punches right in the crotch (Baby boy is breech). DH hasn’t been able to feel them yet, but I know he will soon!

Is your belly button shallowing yet? Or really deep inny?

I’e got some fluff, so it’s still an inny. Ask me again in a month 🙂

Are you planning to get Maternity Photos?

I’m up in the air about it. We shall see. It’s part of our package for baby boy (newborn, 3, 6, and 12 month photos), so I’m still trying to decide if I want them!

How far are along are you?:  22+6

 

Do you have a name picked out? Care to share 🙂 ?: Hunter John Colston 🙂 We’ve been calling him Moose (as in Hunt-a-moose)

 

What are you loving about your pregnancy? BOOBS! I’ve gone from an A to a C! But more than anything else I’m loving the kicks and punches and general movement felt from inside and out 🙂 Love my little man!

 

Have you started decorating a nursery? Do you have a theme picked out? No! I’ve been so slack and haven’t even arranged an inspection of the house we’re supposed to move in to and I have to give 28 days notice here before I’m allowed to move out!

 

Anything you’re currently researching about pregnancy/newborns? Just my weekly updates from my Baby Centre app. I’ve watched a couple of birth videos to try to prepare myself and I’ve read a few bits and bobs about water birth.

 

Are you feeling kicks/punches? Can SO/FI/DH feel them yet? Yes we can! 🙂

 

Is your belly button shallowing yet? Or really deep inny? Shallowing – nearly flat! Time to invest in some maternity belly bars and just hope I haven’t left it too late.

 

Are you planning to get Maternity Photos? Not sure. I think I would like to though.

ROLL CALL!!

How far are along are you?:

23 weeks.. can’t believe how fast time is flying! December will be here before we know it.

Do you have a name picked out? Care to share 🙂 ?:

I’m so glad it’s a girl because DH and I actually agreed on a name – Bianca Rose. We have an Italian last name (well DH does at the moment because I never actually changed mine yet), so it sounds really pretty and flows well!

What are you loving about your pregnancy?

I’m actually loving the growing bump! It all finally feels so real. I love feeling all the little kicks and jabs, minus the ones to the bladder. I love maternity clothes and don’t want to ever go back to normal clothes. I love cute little baby girl clothes and shopping for baby stuff. Okay I’ll stop now, all the ladies with nasty symptoms so far probably want to kill me.

Have you started decorating a nursery? Do you have a theme picked out?

We are closing on a house this week and then have a few months of renovations to be done, so nursery decoration won’t be happening until November! I have everything picked out and on the registry though. I wouldn’t say we have a theme. We are going with the white classic furniture and a pink and gray color scheme with splashes of light blue based on the bedding set we picked out. We are liking elephants and bunnies, and I don’t think they really go together, but they will be thrown in as well!

Anything you’re currently researching about pregnancy/newborns?

Basically everything! I am kinda freaking myself out and need to stop. DH and I just signed up for a natural childbirth class at the hospital I will be delivering at, so I bought a couple books on natural childbirth. I’m not completely sold on it and will sure as hell get an epidural if I need one, but I’d like to keep my options open. 

Are you feeling kicks/punches? Can SO/FI/DH feel them yet?

Oh yes! So many kicks and punches! I started feeling LO really early, and the kicks are getting really hard. My whole belly moves and DH spotted it from across the room. Every night in bed, DH puts his hand on my belly and feels little Bianca moving around. He is so excited about it! 

Is your belly button shallowing yet? Or really deep inny?

I’m pretty sure my belly button is going to pop out soon! It looks so weird!

Are you planning to get Maternity Photos?

I would love to, but I am disgusted with photography prices up near Boston. Everyone I looked at charges $500+ for newborn shoots and $300+ for maternity shoots and you don’t even get any prints or digital copies included with this! With moving right before the baby is due, I’m just not sure if it’ll work out.
