My Week

Let me just start out by saying this week was MUCH needed for this preggo mama! Between my two JAM-packed weekends in a row, a 45+ hour work week and shooting 2 weddings {and participating in one} I was beyond exhausted! The family I nanny for has been on vacation all this week so I've taken it upon myself to do absolutely nothing but clean my house, eat, sleep, relax and sleep some more! It has been heavenly and just what the doctor ordered! 

I've made time this week for lunch & donut dates with my mama, pizza & movie nights in with my sweet hubby, dates with my couch/bed and pregnancy magazines AND time to schedule appointments to go see LIAM! :)

I literally can't believe I'm 25 weeks pregnant! Time is going SO SO SO fast! I just wanted to take a minute and document this "me" time because everyone keeps telling me this will be very missed! 
I'm feeling very anxious/excited for the weeks and months ahead and I know I don't even know what "tired" is yet! SO- until this little man of mine makes his debut I'm going to take advantage of every opportunity to get as much sleep and relaxation as possible! 

Because after all,

A Letter To Liam

My Sweet Boy,
Mommy wanted to write you this letter to document exactly how I'm feeling in this very moment. We're officially 22 weeks tomorrow! Time is absolutely flying by! I feel like we just found out about you yesterday! You're growing SO much and you already weigh about 1 lb! I think everyone is predicting for you to be a big baby! My favorite thing in the world is feeling you kick! Daddy is able to feel you now too and it just melts my heart into a million pieces! I think I picked a pretty great daddy for you! He loves you so much already! :) Well, basically everyone does! You are going to be one very spoiled loved child!!

Here lately I can't get over picturing who you're going to look like! Are you going to have my complexion? Daddy's eyes? {I hope so!} Red hair??? I just can't wait until that doctor places you in my arms! But most importantly I just desperately pray that you are healthy. I would be lying if I said I haven't been worried about your arrival! I'm not worried about the pain, just the thought of something going wrong scares me to no end. But I've been trying to put all my faith and trust in God because I know he created you for a wonderful purpose! You are going to do HUGE things in this world my sweet, sweet son! 

I can honestly say becoming pregnant with you is the best thing that has EVER happened to me. I never thought I could love someone I've never even met SO much. You are my everything. November cant come soon enough! 

Well, mommy is off to the doctor here soon to check up on you! Mommy is actually fighting this nasty cold and they wanted to see me a day early to make sure everything is okay!

I love you Liam with my entire heart! 

Love, Mommy!

19 weeks!

I seriously can't believe I'm almost HALF WAY!!! SO crazy! I feel like we just found out yesterday! This bump of mine is growing like crazy! I can honestly say I fall more in love with this little babe everyday! We had an amazing 4th of July weekend hanging by the pool, eating grilled food and hanging out with family! I can't wait for Liam's first 4th next year!

How far along: 19 weeks! Almost halfway there!!!
Gender: It's a BOY! Liam Justin! :)
Weight gain: 3-5 lbs! I go back Friday for my 20 week ultrasound so I'll find out for sure then!
Maternity clothes: A few! I've basically been living in maxi dresses! And I still use the rubber band trick for my pants!
Stretch marks: So far so good!!! I've been using my stretch mark oil like crazy!
Belly button in or out: Out! It sticks out so far lol!
Sleep: I still need lots of sleep but it's getting WAY more uncomfortable! Especially now that I'm not supposed to be sleeping on my back! Plus I always have the urge to pee 500 times a night!
Best moment this week: Having a few days off to be productive around the house and spending a wonderful 4th of July weekend with family! :)
Miss anything: Being skinny lol! He's so worth it though!
Movement: YES!!! Seriously the best thing I've ever experienced! Hoping Justin will be able to feel him soon!
Cravings: Hmm... lets see... EVERYTHING! I'm always, always hungry! But seriously- anything FRESH! Fresh garden tomatoes + mayo + toast = the best creation on the planet! 
Looking forward to: Our 20 week ultrasound on Friday and getting away for the weekend with my love!
