{31 weeks & big sister stuff}

yes.  it's amazing! i can still see my feet!!
Here we are... Sailing right in to the 8th month.

This pregnancy has been challenging, yet it is still passing way too quickly! 

I had a doctors appointment today (it was suppose to be my 29week appointment, but was rescheduled). 

It's always reassuring hearing my sweet little Hayden's heartbeat!! 

I was thrown for a loop when my doctor said that my two week appointments begin now and then my weekly. And that I needed to call the hospital to do our pre-admittance appointment. I'm sorry, WHAT??? Aren't we still at like 20weeks?!


Goodness!!! 

So at 31 weeks, at my appointment today....

• I'm measuring at 30 weeks, but we weren't surprised. Harper was (& still is) teeny too! 

• I officially passed my glucose test, by tons!!! I was shocked since I barely passed it with Harper! 

• I've only gained 12lbs!! Woohoo!! At 1lb  a week from here on out - that puts me at just a little over 20lbs - which is about 5lbs less than I gained with Harper. I'll take it!!! 

• got the whooping cough vaccine. So tomorrow my arm is going to be killing me!!! But!! It's the best protection for my little one! I made the same choice when I was pregnant with Harper. 

• I'm anemic. Ugh. More vitamins. They said I just need to get it under control before delivery. So we stocked up on vitamins today! & oh darn... I have to eat a lot of red meat. Bring on the steaks!!!! 

• I made all my appointments until the week after my due date. Talk about a wake up call!!! 

After the appointment today, we went to
a brand new restaurant (it's not even open for regular business yet) with my mother in law for lunch. It was so yummy!!! It's healthy, organic, and has tons of gf & df options! Win-win!!! Then headed over to look at some model homes. It has been an awesome day!  Now my little one is napping, all cuddled up next to me, as I blog and sip on some Dr Pepper!! ❤️ life is good friends!!! 

In Harper news, I had to sit her in time out this morning for the first time in quite a few days!! I was so sad - we had been on another angel child streak! Well. Then the two year old-going on 16 broke out the attitude this morning. And well. We refuse to let her act like that. So to time out she went. It broke her little heart. She got it!! And I even got to throw in the "how sad that your in time out... You haven't been in time out in so long!!!" I've been working with her so much on "bad choices" and "good choices" and their consequences. It could totally be a fluke, but it seems to be sinking in. At least this week! After the time out she needed some hugs and then it was like a whole new kid showed up!

She is starting to really want "baby Hayden" to come out now!! She asks if baby Hayden can sit next to her a lot. It's so adorable!!! And I'm quite in love with how she says Hayden!! 

Everyone tells me how full our hands will be having two girls so close in age. I mean really, I don't consider them to be super close in age - 23ish months. I know people with kiddos a lot closer. I'm personally so excited that we will have two girls so close!! Will we be busy?... I'm sure of it!! But these girls will always have one another and for that I am already so proud!!

  6. So exciting! You're in the homestretch now! Great job with the weight gain. Towards the end with my first, I went a bit overboard, and gained a ton. It's so hard to get off, so you're doing it right. Best of luck!
