A little late in this one- not that they are that exciting of posts really:)
ten weeks to go!
He is growing like a weed! Weighing in at 3.2 lbs and 17.1 inches (approximately the size of a butternut squash). His brain is maturing and he is shedding his lanugo (the baby hair that keeps his body warm). He is still super active- even if I go days without any ounce of caffeine. He is getting the hiccups at least 3 times a day and I even googled if there was something (maybe honey?) I could eat to make him stop. I even tried to scare him. Didn't work.
Me this week:
It was not the most pleasant way to spend 4 hours but I got to study for my test, clean out my car, and take care of some phone calls. It went pretty fast! Thanks to mom for hanging out with A so I could get my arm poked every hour. I celebrated with a Big Mac and fries (who makes a pregnant woman not eat for 18 hours anyway?!)
Taking the regular prenatals hasn't made me as sick as I thought.
The past few days I've gone back to the yucky generalized nausea I had in beginning but no puking so that's great.
Still praying for better sleep and to not lay awake for hours in middle of night. But overall no major complaints:)
Starting every two week appointments so I go back this week. Maybe I'll wear long sleeves to hide any tan lines he might disapprove of :)

Hello third trimester!!
We celebrated this milestone by taking a 7 hour car trip to Michigan:) me and my bladder did better than either of us thought:) (to be a later post!)
He is weighing in at 2.5 lbs and is 16 inches long this week (roughly the size of a cauliflower). He is still a wild man who gets hiccups very frequently. He can blink and can now have REM sleep. Although I'm not sure he sleeps long enough to know that yet;)
Me this week: coming off my Diclegis has been rough. I was sick several times this week which I completely blame Anthem (our insurance company) for. I managed not to pack on too many pounds on our vacation. My walking has slowed down some but I am still walking every day I can, depending on Philips schedule.
I go to OB this week for my glucose test so prayers I'm not too sweet;)
Cravings: like I said before- McDonald's French fries are the best nausea cure out there. So I indulged several times this week. Also: chocolate milk and Subway (subway has been a consistent one all pregnancy).

I read this article today and literally was like " I could have written this!" :) minus the f- word and few vulgar comments (dad you might want to skip this read it's not very lady like). But the overall gist is me while pregnant.
And since I was sick as a dog last night, ending my no-puking streak- I thought I would share:)
People who love being pregnant baffle me- but I also realize people who love being pregnant typically have easier pregnancies and for whatever reason my body just doesn't react well to growing a child. My husband made a comment on how I fare during pregnancy and while it did NOT go over well at the time- I understand what he meant. I'm just not at my best a lot of times during pregnancy:) it's hard yall.
So yes while I love Parker and am so anxious to meet and love on him and kiss his face- I also wouldn't mind skipping the whole process it takes to get him here:)
Ps- every time I'm super nauseas, I have one miracle cure: McDonald's French fries. It is better than zofran - I can't explain why but I am being totally serious here. It helps my nausea soo much!
Here's the article for those who enjoy a light hearted chuckle- all in good, joking fun:
And since its been a while since I've shared a recipe- here's one my whole family seems to consistently enjoy. It's like adult macaroni and cheese with hot dogs.
