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.

30 weeks already?! Whaaaaat??
I'm feeling this bump size now! H U G E!!
Not just my baby bump, but my body is getting big. I'm only 2 pounds away from what I weighed when I delivered Eddie...
On Friday I had a doctors appointment and my blood pressure was 150/100...!!
Ahh! I've been eating AWFUL and gained 11 pounds in one month. They started testing me for preeclampsia and kind of scared me in to eating better. Luckily, today I got results back that there is no protein in my urine! Yay! And I don't have gestational diabetes (sweet)!
So, now I get to do twice weekly NST's and a weekly ultrasound. I feel like I'm on vacation. Serious! My mom (love her!) is watching Eddie so I can not be stressed during my NST's.
My blood pressure is 117/79 - so that's great for me!!
Ricky is SUPER active. She had to wait the first 10 minutes for him to calm down because he wouldn't stop kicking! Lol
Just like his brother ;-)
On Friday we are going to Baby Pictures to do a 3D/4D ultrasound. I did it with Kaina and I really wish I would've done it with Eddie. It's pretty cool!
I can't believe that in about 7 or 8 weeks (most likely) we will have our Ricky here with us. How amazing!
I feel So, so blessed.
How lucky am I?! I get one beautiful girl and two wild boys to love for the rest of my life. AND the seriously best Daddy/husband to be by my side through it all. Such a blessed life. ❤️
Cravings: S U G A R!!! Pop. Coffee. This is what I'm fighting against on the daily. Ugh. Now I need to focus more on protein, veggies and fruit.
Aversions: veggies and fruit :-/
Overall I'm feeling ok. I can tell now when my blood pressure rises. I also feel super light headed and out of breath a lot.
I just overall feel out of shape. I can't wait to start running again. That seems to be when I'm at my best :)
Until next week!
