How did they react? Lauren was so supportive and happy. Jeremy – “Are you serious?!?!” My Parents and his parents were so happy! Lots of screaming, laughing and hugging!

Telling the Parents and Grandparents:
How did your parents react? We went to their house just to stop by and say hi. I was sooo nervous to actually say the words but once I did they were both so happy. We went to dinner later and they couldn’t stop asking questions and smiling.
How did his parents react? We got online to talk to them via the webcam. It was perfect. We got to see their reactions rather than just hear them. They were happy too.
Are they helping with baby names? Heck no! It is our baby!

29 Weeks!!

Photobucket

How far along? 29 Weeks today.

Weight gain/loss? +10!! Nice!

Maternity clothes? Yup that’s all I wear now.

Stretchies? Nothing new. Thankfully.

Sleep? Oh I could sleep all day! I really wish I could nap at work.

Best moment this week? "Passing" the Glucose Test. No diabetes for me. Also knowing that our little man was okay after our scary ER visit on Monday night.

WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: As stated above! So scary. Monday evening I had really bad pains in my sides. They were constant, decided to head to the ER just in case. Everything was fine. Baby's heartrate was perfect, no contractions and my bp was just right. Not sure what the pain was from but I haven't had any problems since.

Movement? Oh yes, he is a mover and a shaker!

Food cravings? Chocolate Milk!! Yum!

Gender? Still a Boy! ;o)

Labor signs? Some Braxton Hicks. Nothing big though! Stay put buddy!

Belly button in or out? in but getting kind of shallow.

What I miss? Sleeping on my tummy and not having Heartburn every night.

What I am looking forward to? In 1 week my best friend will be here! I can't wait to hang out and relax with her and her hubby!

Weekly wisdom? If in doubt go to the ER, it is worth the time and the money.

Milestones? 1 week away from making it to the 30 week mark! Crazy how fast it is going.

Maternity Photos... Ideas please!

Maternity photos are something I do want to do but I want to wait until I am further along. I really want that BUMP to be there! ;O) So I am thinking 34 or 35 weeks would be good.
So now I am thinking about what I will wear for those photos.

I do want to find a Boston Red Sox’s shirt to wear because Jeremy is a diehard fan! I have found some online but I haven’t decided if I want to buy any yet. Possibly this one: Photobucket

I have another shirt that I know I want to wear because it is just clean and classic maternity. It is white so it will be perfect with jeans and for those black and white photos.

I think it would be fun to get a “funny” t-shirt too. Something pregnancy related on it. We will see. I have time to find something. If anyone has any ideas for shirts please leave a comment!!

We will go to Target for our photos, we liked there photos the last time we got them done.

Oh and don’t you think it would be adorable to have the little letter blocks spelling out his name? Cute cute!! Too bad we haven’t decided on a name yet!

Anyone have any other ideas or props for photos?

Pun-kin loves the new baskets, he knows we bought them just for him to sit in and take naps in.
