Dear Store Clerk.....

Dear Motherhood Maternity Store Clerk,

I just wanted to tell you a few things.
Its nice that you greet me when I come into the store, but leave me alone after that. I don't want you to ask what I am looking for today, or if you can help me find anything. I just want piece and quiet. I didn't come so you could be my personal shopper. I WANT TO PICK OUT MY OWN CLOTHES!
Please don't come by and grab each and every item of clothing out of my hand as soon as I pick it up to put in a room for me. And then add 2 shirts for every one shirt that I pick.
Please don't suggest sizes to me.....when I say I want a large, thats what I want. Yes, I realize I fit in a medium right now but I still have 2 months to go and want my shirt to fit comfortably, not skin tight.
When I say I don't wear tank tops, please stop picking them out for me to "just try on". And don't say, "Well it's summer and its pretty hot outside." Yes I realize its hot but that doesn't change it for me. The same goes with shorts.
Sales lady.....just because you think something is cute and you have it in every color, doesn't mean I like it. They have different styles for a reason.
When I go over to look at the bras please don't hover. Or ask me what size I wear. Why not just ask me how much I weigh too.
And one last thing.....when I go to check out don't be so snotty to me and ask what was wrong with ALL the shirts I tried on. Because really I only tried on the 3 I picked out, the other 7 I left on the hanger. And don't ask me 4 times am I SURE I don't want to try anything else on....because at that point in my shopping adventure I will be so ticked off that I may give you a piece of my mind.....your lucky I didn't today.

By the way.....I will go ALL the way across Tucson to the other store from now on, or make sure you aren't in there.

26 Weeks

Here is my 26 week is still an eggplant.

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!
Baby's soaking up your antibodies, getting her immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and she'll soon be practicing the blink...perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.

Weight Gain: Not sure.....can't be too bad yet.

Sleep: Please?! Not so bad, but I feel the need for more.

Name: Still nothing. And really I don't mind not having anything yet. We will know it when we hear it.

Food Cravings: Nothing too crazy. I wanted pasta so Jeremy and I went to the Outback to eat last week......holy heartburn.

Best moment this week: Going to see Date Night with my husband....good movie. And discovering the best cupcakes ever!

What I miss: sleeping in, wearing my pj's all day.

What I am looking forward to this week: So many things! Jeremy and I going to be ushers at the Gila Valley Temple, going to the temple open house with our family, and getting away this weekend at Jason and Heidi's house....

I did have a little panick attack this week. 26 weeks is scary! I am going to compar it to turning 26......not really in the early 20's anymore...much closer to 30. And it pregnancy weeks 30 is nearing the end. That is SOOO scary. I cannot believe I am almost to 30, then it will be 35, then 38, then going in to deliver. I know this all has to happen at some point, but still it was an eye-opener.
Also I am getting some form of nesting. Since I don't have my own house to nest in...I am feeling the need to ready the house we will move into. Jeremy probably thinks I am crazy, but is not willing to argue with me. I am really staring to need to ge things going so I can see that we won't live here when this baby comes.

90 Days

I always joke around with people and tell them I am not going to buy any baby stuff until I am within 90 days of delivery. That way whatever I don't need...either boy or girl long as I have the receipt I can take it back.
I have been saying that for months now, and it always seems a million years away.
So yesterday my sister Jennifer and I were in Tucson visiting our grandma in the hospital. Then of course we stopped at Target on the way home. I found a cute girl outfit that was only $6 that I just couldn't put down. So I decided to buy it. As I was checking out I was joking about keeping my receipt. Then it occured to was 90 days to the day. Oh my goodness......90 days. I cannot even believe that its creeping up on me so fast.

90 days until we meet our new baby!
90 days until we find out if its a boy or girl...
90 days until I have another c-section
90 days until Jayden is a big brother
90 days until Grayson and Colby have another sibling
90 days until Jeremy gets to wait on me
90 days until I get to be a stay at home mom again

Of course now that I am in my "90" days.....I am still really hesitant to buy anything.

DiApEr bAg

After countless hours of research and searching....I have finally found the diaper bag I want. Of course I can only find it online so I don't know how it really looks. But I guess thats a risk I have to take.

Week 25

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!
That oh-so-handy sense of equilibrium is kicking in, and baby's learning to distinguish right side up from upside down.

Weight Gain: Not sure...but after vacation and all the churros, cotton candy, caramel apples, and mickey ice creams I am scared to find out. Although I may have walked enough to balance it out.

Sleep: Ehhhh...its ok. I know it will only get worse from here.

Gender: Same.....don't know. Its funny when strangers ask me if its another boy, its almost like they are scared for me.

Name: Still no boy name. I joke around and call it Fatso because thats what Jayden said...he thinks it funny when I do.

Food cravings: I have eaten anything and everything I crave. Right now I LOVE meatball subs from subway....had one for lunch today.

Best moment this week: Getting to see how much fun the boys had.

What I miss: own house, my own kitchen, my own space.

What I am looking forward to this week: Going on a date tomorrow with my handsome husband, painting a dresser I got awhile back, sleeping more!

Oops skipped a week...

Whoops....I didn't do week 23, I just skipped to 24 because I guess I just never got around to it. So here we are are 24 weeks! YEY!

Baby's now the size of a papaya!
Baby's skin is becoming more opaque as the fat starts to pack on. And, thanks to the formation of small capillaries, her newly thick skin is taking on a fresh pink glow.

Weight Gain: I am at 15 pounds total. When I had my doctors appt yesterday she said something about my weight and I thought I was in trouble. But just the opposite, she said so far I was doing really good and she thinks this time I won't gain as much.....well here is to hoping.

Sleep: Now that we turn on the A/C at night I am sleeping very nicely!

Gender: Still don't know.... but I narrowed it down to a boy or girl.

Name: We have yet to decide. Jayden's suggestion is Fatso....too bad there isn't a "y" in it.

Food Cravings: I never got my cheesecake....but am still hopefull. What I really want is some shrimp from Bubba Gump's Shrimp Factory...only 5 days then I will get some.

Belly Button in or out: Still in.

Best Moment this Week: I went in for a check up yesterday. The n/p was trying to get the heart rate with the doppler and the baby did not let her. Every time she put it on my stomach the baby would kick it until she moved it. The baby did it 4 times before the n/p moved to the other side of my was really funny.

What I miss: Being able to stay home.

What I am looking forward to this week: Disneyland! Bubba Gump's Shrimp Factory, the beach, How to Train your Dragon, seeing how excited the boys are when we tell them we are going on vacation....they STILL don't know. Just getting to spend time together and making memories.

22 Weeks

Here is how big baby is:

Baby's now the size of a papaya!
Baby's settling into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

Here are a few survey questions:

Weight Gain: 12ish pounds....I only weigh in at the doctors

Sleep: Getting uncomfortable....I bought a body pillow but its not doing its job. I wake up alot at night with hip pain.

Gender: Still don't know.....just waiting. Although some lady came up to me at Easter and said my baby is a girl and walked away....umm weird.

Name: Still in negotiations for a boy name. Jeremy suggested a name as a joke but I really liked it. But for a girl....Brinley

Food Cravings: I am DYING for a piece of Blueberry Cheesecake...maybe tomorrow I'll get some

Belly Button in or out: Still in, but getting flatish

Best Moment This Week: Getting to spend time with family at Easter.

What I Miss: MY own house!

What I am looking Forward to this week: Opening day on Saturday, both boys have games and hopefully getting to see Garrett & Rose's new baby.
