28 Weeks

28 WEEK UPDATE Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs. YIKES!

Maternity Clothes: YES!

Movements: All the time. Sometimes she will position herself in VERY uncomfortable places and just sit there.

Sleep: Not too good. I usually go to sleep about 10pm (which is late for me) and wake about 1am. I can't go back to sleep until 4am. Then sleep from 4-7am. Usually I will lay in bed and think, however this weekend I got up and organized Ansley's room a bit (on the positive it didn't take away any time from my boys).

Cravings: Mexican!

Best Moment this Week: Passing my sugar test!!!

What I look forward to most: Her bedding should be here next week!

Update on Ansley: Her heart rate was 143bpm. She sits up very high like Aiden did, making the indigestion MISERABLE. Aiden LOVES to discipline her already. If she kicks hard or makes me uncomfortable, he is quick to come to my stomach and tell her to "stop hurting my mommy".

Last week

Last week was a pretty exciting week. Aiden has been begging to go to the dentist. We got a new pediatric dentistry in our hometown and when Aiden saw all the animals on top of the building he just had to go even more. So I finally broke down and made him a dentist appt. Seriously if I could have gone here as a child I would have loved the dentist. Of course, Aiden LOVED it and did a great job being still and obeying the dentist and staff. Getting X-rays, he loved seeing pictures of his teeth.


Wearing his cool sunglasses while watching Cars on the TV in the ceiling.


Friday I turned the big 29. My husbands best friend got married Friday night so we didn't get to celebrate. Thursday night we enjoyed our favorite Sushi, Aiden actually ate sushi this time instead of rice or soup and he loves it.

My wonderful co workers who obviously know me well got me the goody basket below.


My boys got me a spa day with a facial, manicure, and pedicure (they already gave me a massage that I haven't cashed in yet). Brandon also got me the 2 charms below to go on my necklace (the diamond necklace is actually the first ever gift Brandon gave me when we started dating).


Saturday my family got together to celebrate mine and my sis in laws birthday. I got lots of other goodies and had a great time spending time with my family for my birthday. My mom made a delicious supper.

Finally please say a prayer for my sweet grandmother she is in the hospital and having a pace maker tomorrow. I just broke down crying last night because I'm so scared for her. After my mom she is the best woman I know, I hate to see her hurting and so weak.

27 Week Update

27 weeks

(AKA beginning of the 3rd trimester)

Total Weight Gain: go to the doctor next week so we shall see.


Movements: All day long non stop. I am beginning to wonder if she sleeps ever!


Sleep: I get up about 4 times a night and toss and turn the remainder of it. Most nights I wake for about an hour or so.


Cravings: Anything with peanut butter (I craved Peanut Butter with Aiden too).


Best Moment this Week: My baby shower, I didn't take a single picture though except the one below. I did get lots of things. There is still many things we need and need to do before she arrives. Unfortunately her room is a disaster area still, so I can't even begin to look through the clothes we have already gotten and see what else we need. I am a little concerned that I have NO time to get her room together, I don't have a free weekend until Oct. It's crazy to me how much I have put off getting things together this time around, with Aiden his room and everything I needed was done by now. :)

25 Weeks

25 week update

Total Weight Gain: 14 lbs. Yikes!

Maternity Clothes: Of course!

Gender: Girl, Ansley Renee Cox

Movements: Yes, this girl is a gymnast or boxer.

Sleep: Not very good unless I take tylenol pm before bed.

Cravings: Just about anything, but I've had a lot more food aversions than I have cravings.

Best Moment This Week: Brandon seeing her move yesterday. Everytime she gets to moving and I tell Brandon to look or feel, she stops. :)

What I look forward to most: My 1st shower this weekend with my church friends.

Baby update: According to the doctor today Ansley is "2 finger lengths" larger than she should be at this time. He should she should be about 3 fingers above my belly button and she is about 5. So maybe she will come early or just be big? I'll take either one as long as she is healthy. Her heartbeat was 140bpm today.

I have my glucose test in 3 weeks so that should be exciting. I've feeling a lot of sharp pains and unfortunately my feet have began to swell at the end of each day, which they didn't do with Aiden. I've noticed I'm a lot more moody this pregnancy and very easily illed.




Quality Time

Lately B and I have been spending as much time with Aiden as possible. We both took off Friday and spent the day with him.

We went to the zoo Friday morning. Aiden wanted to see the elephants, sea lion show, and lions. We went straight to the elephants and sea lion show. He loved them both and of course I was too caught up on watching him that I didn't snap hardly any pictures. This year the zoo added another exhibit with a splash pad and Aiden was in heaven. I had to snap a few quick pictures. Oh fyi we don't just carry around swim trunks, someone gave us a warning to bring them.After the zoo we headed to the mall, my idea of course. But I promised Aiden we would do something a little fun at the mall and boy was he excited to do the Spider Jump.

After the mall we went to stay with my grandmother for the night and spend time with her before the family reunion on Sat. Aiden loves staying with her anytime possible so he talked all day about going to her house. When we got there she had her rollers in. She has worn these same rollers since I was a little girl and she put us all in them atleast once. So of course Aiden had to have his turn. :) Sat and Sun were just as much fun as Friday but of course no pictures. :)
