My Baby Bump Journal – 30 weeks

This is what 30 weeks looks like ūüôā
30 weeks prego

So its been a little bit since I posted about my baby bump sorry mamas, been so busy.

Well I am now 30 weeks pregnant the day is almost here, this pregnancy has gone by really fast for some reason. I went to the doctors last week and I currently weight 173 putting me at 13 lbs gained since I found out I was pregnant i’m a total “chubby bunny” lol. Baby moves a lot which is a great thing but I have to admit sometimes it hurts too much ūüôĀ My feet are starting to get swollen which is no fun because they look like “FIONA FEET” haha.. not a good look. We are slowly getting ready for “lil edward’s” arrival. What are we naming him??? We are thinking Edward since he is our last baby and a last boy at that so I would like to carry on my hubby’s name. Though we really wanted a name with an “A” since we already have Adryana, Ashton making the third my triple A’s. So not too sure yet, I guess we will see once the baby is born. I have been getting really bad heartburn, and headaches which come with pregnancy also i’ve been very forgetful, not sure if thats part of being pregnant? I cant really hold lil bam bam in my arms unless I have him on my side because my stomach hurts (too much pressure) my belly button also hurts. Let’s see what else can I complain about …. haha just kidding pregnancy has been awesome I find it totally surreal still I think not until I see the baby will I believe that I just had another baby. I am very greatful to GOD for giving me the opportunity to carry a baby inside me. I cant wait to meet my little guy. I wonder who he will look like? Do you or did you wonder this same thing?? Really what it comes down to is just wanting a healthy baby thats all I care about. Stay tuned for more info on my pregnancy.

My Baby Bump Journal – 13 Weeks

13 Weeks
This post was about ready and I just needed to posted it but since I took the whole month of October off, its a bit late but here it is..¬†lets play catch up… on this day my hubby told me we were going somewhere but did not tell me where.¬†To my surprise he took me to a ultrasound office to see our little baby in the oven. I was really just surprised he wanted to see our little one that bad. Our Doctor has not done a ultrasound so he figured he would take it upon him self to do it or take me ūüôā We are very excited to meet our little baby soon, even though I’ve had 2 ultrasounds already I think each time is always just as beautiful to see a beautiful creation God has given you is so precious words cant even describe the way I feel and felt seeing another little person inside me.The experience was amazing here are some pictures of our little peanut.
