A little about me:
I'm 32 & married to the most amazing man, Eddie who is 30. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship (although Eddie has been her Dad since she was 6). I was 17 when I had her. Eddie and I were married in November 2012 and are now expecting a son in October 2014! We had a bit of a journey for one year trying to conceive our son - I'm sure that someday I will share all of our trials, but for now I'm just going to bask in the joy that we are able to have a child!
It has been 14 years since I have experienced pregnancy and raising a baby so it kind of feels like the first time all over again.

25 weeks! :D
25 weeks!! This week has been great :)
Feeling pretty good! Compared to a lot of women I have lucked out during this pregnancy, (knock on wood).
Comparing this pregnancy to when I was pregnant with Kaina is like night and day.
This pregnancy has been so nice and calm. No morning sickness or anything too bad. When I was pregnant with Kaina I had morning sickness, super dizziness , high blood pressure and even had pneumonia for a few weeks during the summer. So, for this pregnancy I am feeling super blessed and happy. :)
So, so happy :)
I am so lucky to have such a great support system! Eddie and Kaina are so supportive and amazing :)
I <3 him
Happy, blessed - even if I'm having a hard day I'm trying to stay as positive as possible. I want little E to have as many positive vibes as possible before he is a part of this crazy world.
Walking, walking, walking. I have started doing 100 squats per day, minimum.
Squats supposedly make your labor easier... So, I'm doing lots ;)
Lots of body aches, headaches, sore gums and heartburn.
Carpel tunnel... I'll save that symptom for next week if I still have it.
Nothing too bad - for the most part I feel great!
All of this beautiful weather has been making me so happy! I'm also really lucky that I don't feel hot all of the time yet. I still feel cold a lot of the time - fingers crossed it stays that way.
Not really too many cravings or aversions. I have noticed that I don't want to eat as much as I used to. I still want lots of protein, and drinking a gallon of water a day (at least).
I've been trying to stay away from sweets... That's easier said than done ;)
