~35 weeks~

I can't believe I'm 35 weeks pregnant. 
The last little while I have been feeling a little nauseous but not enough to want to throw up. 
Heartburn is a nightly thing again. ugh......I hate heartburn!!!!
This baby is still VERY active, especially at night.
I had a doctors appointment today and it was the first appointment that he checked me (vaginally) and he said I was thick, closed and baby is still high. It was so uncomfortable when he checked me. I knew it wouldn't be fun but I don't remember it being that uncomfortable!!!
I didn't think much would be happening but I can always hope. I'm still, at this point planning a c-sec but we will see. 
I gained 4 pounds in two weeks! 
I defiantly can feel a lot of baby in my tummy! I can't wait to hold him/her in my arms!! 
4 more weeks!!!!! WOW!!!


 Last weekend Jeremy pinched a nerve in his back moving a rose bush in our yard. So the chiropractor gave Jeremy some stretches to do and Kimberly decided she needed to do them with her daddy.

This last Sunday Jeremy decided it would be a good day to go visit the Zoo. Kimberly was so excited when he came upstairs and asked if she wanted to go. She was so hyper the whole way there and we were thinking we might have to leave her with the monkeys because she was acting like them. ha ha  Her favorite animal is still the elephant she wanted to stand there and watch them forever.  She had a lot of fun running around, the only problem with it was she is a people watcher and kept running into people and things because she would not look where she was walking. After a walk around Jeremy and I were pretty beat (him with a pinched nerve in his back and me prego) so we headed home......And did a project we have been trying to do for awhile..........

 We moved Kimberly to an upstairs room!!!! She was a big helper with taking apart and putting her bed back together. I love watching her help with projects. She has done really well in the room upstairs. I get a little nervous with her upstairs and us downstairs but I'm sure I will get used to it. Now we need to start setting up the babies room and finish decorating Kimberly's new room. 

 She likes her new room! Its just a bit empty.
 Her first night in her new room with the new bedding Grandpa Jared gave her for Christmas! She is such a big girl!


On St. Patrick's day we decided to plant two fruit trees. One is a mixed apple and one is a fruit cocktail. Kimberly loves helping in the yard.

Kimberly by her fruit cocktail tree!
We will have to take pictures with Kimberly by the tree so we can watch them both grow. 

These pictures are Kimberly watching the cake cook that we made Grandma for her birthday! She is such a good helper inside and outside the house! 
Grandma's cake! :)

~33 Weeks~

I can't believe I am 33 1/2 weeks in this pregnancy. I have been feeling pretty good. I definitely get uncomfortable at night. The baby really likes to move around at night. So I have been having a hard time getting to sleep at night but I do like the comfort that comes with feeling our baby. The other day the baby decided it would be fun to kick me in the ribs (Kimberly didn't do this) so I was quite sore that night.
I went to the doctors today and everything looks good. I have a normal blood count and have gained a total of 7 lbs this whole pregnancy. (well I had lost 20lbs in the first trimester so I'm still under my pre pregnancy weight)
The baby has always had a heart rate of 140 and this week it was 130 so the doctor said it has a boy's heart rate. I really can't wait to find out what this baby is. So I can go crazy on decorating for him/her.
My next appointment is in two weeks and it will be the first time the doctor checks me, I am excited to see if I have started anything. 
Jeremy and I will have to decide after the doctor checks me if we are going to try a vaginal birth or just go for a scheduled C-Section. At this point I am planning another c-sec but we will have to see.


 I think I've hit the nesting stage full force this last week. I have been enjoying doing some projects around the house.

This first one is Kimberly and I making a birthday cake for Grandpa Jared. Kimberly was so excited to show Grandpa when he came over that night for dinner. She took him right to the kitchen and said "I have a prize for you!" 

  We have been trying to get one of the upstairs rooms cleaned out to move Kimberly up there but its hard for me to do it by myself so I decided to try out my new sewing machine. I LOVE it!!!!! It works so much better than my last one.
 This is what I made: A canopy for the new babies car seat. I LOVE the way it turned out. Now I want to do more sewing I just need to go buy the fabric.
 Then I wanted to make some thing to go on the walls in Kimberly's new room. So I stopped by Michael's and picked up some stuff for Kimberly and I to paint. This was Kimberly's first time painting and she really liked it.
 I was painting things pink, purple, and a teal. Well Kimberly decided to tie dye all of hers. Ha ha So this is want my paint dish looked like at the end.

 Then I turned around and found that Kimberly decided she needed to be painted! That's the fun part  about painting right!

 I can't wait to get them up on the wall and see how they look.
 While we were painting daddy decided to build her Tricycle. I didn't know this so I took Kimberly in to clean her up and she decided she NEEDED to help.
This is her telling her daddy "give me the screw driver, I do it!"

 The other day we were getting ready to go and Kimberly decided to do her own project and stacked our shoes!
 I have been enjoying getting ideas off of pinterest and so I have been trying new hair styles on Kimberly. I think this one is so cute.
And this one is just cute!
