29 Weeks and I FAIL at Blogging.

I have been so horrible at this whole  blogging scene.  I haven't been blogging much on my own blog and I haven't been visiting and commenting on other blogs except what pops up in my facebook feed.  I am so sorry.  I have always thought it important to visit blogs and comment, it has just been so low on my priority list right now.  I don't know if/when that will change... with a new baby coming and school... I do believe this is only going to get worse not better.  I am going to try though.  I do care about what you all have to say and I am interested, it's just that life is really different for me right now.

Enough of the excuse and disclaimer.  29 weeks is here.  Next week will be week 30... yes, I am captain OBVIOUS! ha.  Week 30 is so important because it means 10 more weeks left... HOPEFULLY LESS!  I would love it if Avery made her entry into the world during November.  I would especially love it if she came before Thanksgiving.  I am full term on the 11th of November.  I know I am doing a lot of looking ahead, but I can't help it.  Between this hypoglycemia, weight gain, and typical annoyances of pregnancy... it cheers me up to look at the light at the end of the tunnel.

So here is the 29 week belly...
29 Weeks Pregnant
Still taking my walks.  I am trying to take them everyday, but I have missed a couple days.  Usually the days that I miss I am busy and active already anyway, so I am still getting exercise.  At this point I don't know how much it is doing for my weight.  My appetite is so big right now.  It's a struggle to not over eat.  I have laid off the juice though.  Drinking primarily water and 1% milk.

What am I enjoying right now?  Avery's movements and rolls for sure.  She isn't a kicker like my other two, she seems to like to roll around in there.  It's fun and reassuring to feel.  I am enjoying the cooler temps coming our way.  A few days are predicted to be in the low 80's, but throwing some mid 60's and low 70 degree days in there is making me happy and ready for fall.

I have some events to look forward to.  My mom's birthday is September 23!  Isn't that possibly the BEST day to have a birthday ever??? I mean right at the Autumn Equinox.  It's pretty awesome that my mom's birth is at the beginning of my favorite season.  I am making her an Italian Wedding Cream cake and canning her some mashed sweet potatoes for her sweet potato pies that she makes.  I am also going to attempt apple butter for her... we'll see how that goes.

Then, on the 24th, Dave and I are traveling to Oklahoma to see OU vs. Mizzou!  We are meeting up with my cousin Kyle and Seana.  Our kids are going to play and hang out with their two wonderful kids while we go to the game, it should be an awesome fun time.

Finally the 28th is my last ultrasound of this pregnancy.  We are checking out baby's position and growth.  I am really looking forward to it.

After this month, things should speed right up as far as the pregnancy is concerned.  October is a fun month full of birthdays, candy, pumpkins, and Halloween.  It should go by pretty fast.  Lindsey and Brendan's birthday is on the 9th and 10th of October... then I am photographing a wedding on the 22nd... then Halloween... then October is over!  Do you realize how fast this is going to go? I will be 35 weeks by the end of October!

November is the home stretch and will probably be the longest draggiest month... but hey!  There is Thanksgiving.  If I haven't mentioned it before Halloween and Thanksgiving are my very favorite holiday's EVER.  I love them even more than Christmas.  I mean, I love Christmas, but it's kind of a sad Holiday because once it's over, it is really the end of the best Holiday's all year.  I prefer the weeks leading up to Christmas.  The cool thing is that Avery will be here, at the latest, during December and no more pregnancy! Now that is a GREAT Christmas present! ha. 

Ok, I seriously am rambling on.  Just know that we are coming up on some happy days for me. :)  I hope you all are equally excited about the Holidays.

I am going to try to make time to visit your blogs and also to blog a couple times other than my weekly pregnancy update. 


  1. YAY! Sounds like everything is going to go so quick for you and that you will be a busy lady! I hope you really get to enjoy this season! Yay for baby being here before Christmas! Hope you get lots of family time with her for your holidays!

  2. hey my mom's bday is sept 23rd too!!! how funny. :D

  3. Congrats to you! And thank you for the comment! You look great!!!

    And I am probably the worst at keeping up with a regular blog "schedule" and commenting back to people. It is very low on my priority list. And there's no need to apologize when life gets in the way! I look forward to following your journey into welcoming your 3rd baby!

  4. I LOVE AUTUMN! & that your moms birthday is that day! Mine is the day after making me a true Libra & a total Autumn baby! But I can't wait till the 23rd! I'm so excited for your holiday season & the arrival of life!

  5. I also love autumn and the holidays that come a long. All the holidays except for Christmas. Christmas time drives me crazy.

  6. You're looking fantastic! Just blog when you can - we'll all be here :)

  7. When you go to OKC, you MUST visit Sweets n Spurs! It's a cowboy boot and cupcake shop! OK, I'll admit that I have no idea what it's like, but my BFF is the baker, and I've tasted her tasty treats and I know they're scrumptious!!!

  8. you look great! 10 weeks is gonna go fast! think of it as the same amount of time from the 4th of july to now. feels like just yesterday :)

  9. I found you through 'a tiny rocket' and really love your blog! We are the same age but the only kids i have are of the cat variety :)

    Congratulations with the newest little one and on being on your way to a new career! I've slowly figured out what I want to be during my 32 years and that's a designer and entrepreneur. And I'm actually getting ready to launch my Etsy store this weekend!

    Exciting times all around...and a new season is almost here - definitely a sign of good things to come :)



I appreciate you taking the time to add your thoughts to this post!
