31 weeks




 
Weeks: 31 weeks! Which means give or take 9 weeks!


Size of baby: About 16 inches and coming in 3 pounds. And for all your fruit people, the size of a pineapple.
 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 16 pounds so far, which is actually 1 pound down from last week, but I ate pretty bad in Tucson and have gone back to paleo since being home, so I am not too worried.
 
Maternity Clothes: Still just jeans, I even fit into a pair of shorts, with them buttoned this weekend!

Movement: So much movement! I get some pretty big kicks and she also moves pretty slow, which feels a tad interesting!

Symptoms: Peeing all the time is my only one at the moment.

Sleep: Still great, loving the pillow in between my legs!

What I miss:  Nothing this week, which is good!
 
Cravings:  Kombucha! I even drove to the store last night just to get myself some grape Kombucha!
 
Best Moment This Week: Feeling great is what I am always thankful for! Going back to a strict paleo lifestyle has make my stomach and digestion system fall back in love with me. Tucson really did a number to my stomach and I had a constant stomach ache the whole time I was there!

Fitness: This week I was able to get in 3 pretty solid workouts. I really wanted to make sure I got my sleep back before I decided to do any working out. One day I did a short sprint workout followed by air squats and push-ups. It took me in total about 15 minutes, but felt good. My second workout was tababta sprints at 10mph, which left me pretty tired. I again worked on planks, air squats, lunges and pushups. Then on Saturday I had my heavy lifting day with squats, front squats and deadlifts. With my deadlifts I can no longer use the barbell because I couldn't get a good positioning and form so I moved to the 40kg kettle bell.

30 weeks


 
How Far Along: 30 weeks 

Size of baby: Eggplant for all you veggie lovers! And just under 3 pounds, but if she is like Vince I am sure she is over that!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 18 pounds so far! A gained 3 pounds over weekend in Tucson and as soon as I went back paleo, it shed right off!

Maternity Clothes: Still only my jeans and one pair of H&M leggings.

Movement: Tons of movement! No hic-ups like with Vince though, which I find interesting!

Symptoms: My hips are hurting from time to time and the occasional rib pain, but I have really been working on my mobility and trying to get up and walk a lot at work, which seems to be helping tons! 

Sleep: I have found that a pillow between my hips is AMAZING! I don't roll around as much and even got Jacob to do it!

What I miss:  Bending with ease. I can still bend, but the belly sure does make it a little interesting! 

Cravings:  Bacon and eggs are my current favorite. Last week it was Mexican only because I knew I was going to be heading to Tucson and boy oh boy did I indulge while I was there!!

Best Moment This Week: Tucson was such a great trip and I am working on a blog post for that as well!



As for everything else, life is going great!! Again it was so amazing to be at my cousins wedding and I am so happy for her!! Also a little jealous since I know as I write this she is in San Diego, one of my most favorite places ever! I hadn't been home since Christmas, so it was a much needed trip. We were go, go, go everyday, but had so much fun!

I am also getting very into nutrition! With my work slowing down to almost nothing most days (Half of our office moved and they were who gave me most of my work) I have been reading, listening to podcasts and reading various paleo blogs. Even though I don't eat 100% paleo I am so interested in the research and backings on why it is such an amazing way to eat. I really hope I can write a detailed post on all my learning's. I have even thought so far as going to school for nutrition and maybe one day working in a children's GI clinic. Only because of how much foods have affected our lives with Vince, I would love to try and help other babies and children with their problems. As you can tell I am extremely passionate about this and hope to one day make it a reality!

Vince's 2nd Birthday Party!

Yeah it was almost 2 months ago, but still better late than never!!

We decieded to keep it very low key this year, with Norah on the way, not living here long and Jacob getting home that morning from being gone two weeks, I didn't want to stress. His first birthday was a blast, but I think I over stressed and didnt fully enjoy myself!











Jacob's Mom, my Dad and  my best friend (who is dating Jacob's little brother) came out to help us celebrate and it was so nice to have them! We kept it small and not very pinterest-y, but we had a blast! We were able to relax and hang out in the morning and just have a good time with a small group of friends.

Thankfully Target had some pretty no too cheessy pirate decorations and I stuck with that. I ended up making his cake again, and of course it was eggless. He asked for cake for the next 4 days, so I am guessing it was good! He didn't eat his first birthday cake, so this was really his first cake he ever ate, since most cakes have eggs, he has never really ate one!

We also make eggless waffles in the shape of a 2 with a candle for breakfast. he equally loved it!!

We played outside, conversed with new friends and overall just had a really good time. I think we will keep birthday parties like this from now on.

I will leave you with pictures because they tell the story! Great times, family and friends!

27 weeks and the pumpkin patch!

It is finally in the cooler temps here Vegas, which after this brutal summer is well needed! We found a local orchard/farm not too far from us where you can pick your own fruits and veggies. We went a couple weeks ago and got lots of goodies and I got very excited when I saw they were opening the pumpkin patch this past weekend!







It was such a blast, they have a lot of wagon they lend out and Vince loved that ride! We only picked out a couple pumpkins and will go back closer to Halloween for some bigger ones. They even had a hay barrel maze, which I think was Vince's favorite! He loved running after the kids inside and then I was "that mom" who was in the maze taking pictures of Vince. 








Also Sunday I hit 27 weeks! And exactly 3 months from my due date! 


How Far Along: 27 weeks




Size of baby: A little over 2lbs and for all you curious what veggie, a 
cauliflower 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 15lbs so far. Had a couple no paleo cheats and it is crazy how fast I gain when I eat that way! Still very proud of my 15lbs!!  

Maternity Clothes: Just bottoms, except for some. Got some H&M "Mama" leggings that are amazing! Also bought the polka dot pants in the pictures at Target on clearance in a size 12 and they have more of a boyfriend fit, but they are so comfortable! The fact they are normal pants make them sag super easily and they look a tad funny. I might try shrinking them a tad!

Movement: Lots! I can tell the movement is getting higher because she is getting bigger!

Symptoms: Hip pain that comes and goes

Sleep: Great!! Zero complaints!!

What I miss:  Not much this week!! 


Cravings:  Anything and everything pumpkin! Also green onions, I add them to everything! I don't know if it is a longing of crunchy, since most paleo foods aren't, but I think I could just eat one by itself.
