Week 27 (7 months) Belly Picks

So, this is my belly. As I am looking at the camera to make sure Ryan did a good job I say " These pictures make my belly look big." Ryan's response.... "because it is!" I cannot believe I still have three months of growing to do! I don't have any stretch marks (well I do but those were there before I found out I was preggo) but if baby only weights approx 2 pounds now and will be a Bilski/Heckeroth baby which have been known to produce 9+ pounds babies I will have some of those pesky stretch marks! In the pic where I show some skin the belly looks fake! This was obviously the first time the skin has seen daylight.

This week has been busy. Ryan's birthday was thursday. Yaya, love my sweetie, hope we had a great day. We only have two days of school left. Thank the lord. Though these two days are going to be extremely busy. Feild trip to the park and then bowling on Monday and Fifth grade Graduation on Tuesday. We have a work day on Wednesday but should be pretty relaxed. As much as I love my job and working with kiddos I am completely burnt out. I need a vacation. I don't want to go anywhere, I just want to sit on the couch and relax! But it is weird thinking I wont be in the classroom till around November 1st. That is 5+ months away.

I took Sophie to Red Bed Isle off of Town Lake this morning. She loved it and was very well behaved! She is a natural swimmer. For an hour and half I was throwing the ball into the lake and her retreving it. I was worried she was going to wear herself out and not make it too shore. I love going down there every once in awhile so if your dog likes to swim let me know and we can all go down together. Tonight Ryan is having some friends over for poker and I am going to camp out in the bedroom doing some late grading for students 50 state and capitals test and writing overdue Thank You Notes for baby showers! Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Chuggin' Along

So last night, laying in bed, unable to sleep because of achy back and no comfortable position to be found I realized I needed to blog. It had been awhile. But last night the only title I could think of was "Crankiness." This morning I feel like I need to remain positive if I am going to make it till August!

There have been lots of improvements in life since I have last communicated with the blogging world. Ryan and I have closed and moved into our house. Almost all unpacked but this have some settling in to do. Sophie and Diego love their new found space. From a small apartment to a 2,ooo square foot house with an enormous backyard. Sophie did take at least a week to get used to be being in her crate when we left that first week. But I believe all is well. Diego's stomach needed to get used to him eating grass... yuck. Ryan did a good job cleaning up after him after he attempted to dye our new carpet green. Yesterday I bought Sophie a small baby pool for the backyard so she can cool off in the hot summer months. Being all black can be hard on poor puppy! I will get some pics up soon.

My family has been so wonderful in helping us out in so many ways! It has been amazing. Thank you again!

Updates in preggo world. I am definitely gaining ground in the poundage area. Last week at the doctors apt I had gained 10 pounds in a month! Dr wasn't worried though because that was still only 5 pounds more than what I weighed around 5 weeks preggo. Maybe there was a reason for the tough first trimester.... telling your body not to eat three months can make some fat go away. I measured right along schedule doc is still saying sometime between the Aug 23-30th. Which is the first week of school. So I am most likely not going to start the year off.

Andrew, my Karate kid is turning into a wrestler I think. Not so much sharp jabs anymore but more like a person getting a running start, jumping, landing on a wall and sliding down the surface. Does that makes sense???? There have been some moments where my breath has been knocked out by his full body rolls or when he "tries" to stretch out ( I only assume) pushing on my stomach, bladder and spine.

As you read earlier my poundage is up along with my appetite. BUT I am going to try and not eat 20 cupcakes/cake this week or a bag of oreos or a package of guacamole or a whole pizza. No need to reach the 200 pound mark..... right? Very Scary. No cankles so far.

Right now Sophie is enjoying the outer layer of a 8-12 years old girls soccer ball. We thought she would like to nudge it around the backyard with her nose and place soccer but all she wants to do is destroy it. Which is fine by me because a. not any of my personal belongings b. it has already lasted longer than many other expensive dog toys b. keeps her occupied c. Intimidates the birdies in our backyard. Home the woodpecker that has already put a whole on our porch is watching.

Is it bad to dream about Mexican martinis??? I am waiting for the day when I can just have a sip!

Pictures to come. Summer is only a week and half away! And I am not proof reading this so sorry if you are frustrated!
