piece de resistance

Here they are all together.  It is crazy to look back and see how tiny my belly once was, I mean at the beginning that shirt practically drowned me.  Now it just feels like I am wearing one of Carmen’s shirts.  Now that I am this size I cannot ever remember not having this huge belly, so it is weird to look back and see proof.  I remeber this with my last pregnancy too.  You grow so accustomed to having a large belly that you start to see the world differently.  I would see my sister and be concerned that she was getting way too skinny.  Or I would see a shot of myself pre pregnancy that I thought at the time wasn’t that great, but now that I am way huger than that, I think man I looked HOT in that picture.  Oh well, it won’t be that way for too much longer I hope.  I am just keeping my finger’s crossed for another really thirsty baby.

Here is the final belly shot for this pregnancy… If I go another month, no there will not  be a 10 month shot (I’m joking, I already know my doctor will induce me long before this 9 pound baby turns into an 11 pound baby). Plus that is the last time I will be able to squeeze myself into those tiny clothes anyway.

I hope you have enjoyed watching me balloon up to record proportions…  Luckily I have the wonderfully talented Wendy to take these pictures, or things may have gotten really scary.

I am getting really excited to see what’s in there.

I heart Wendy and her amazing abilities behind a camera.
Here is my 7 month shot. Yes I know I didn’t  do a  6 month shot, and I also realize that I forgot my yellow bracelet  (which I am bugged about).  I am slacking… but this has been a busy couple of months so sue me.  At my most recent doctor’s appointment I found out that this baby is huge already.  He is weighing in at 4lbs 8oz and since they are supposed to just about double their weight in remaining weeks he is probably going to be of similar girth to Carmen (who was 9lbs 4oz).  I certainly have gained enough weight already. When your Dr asks you if it’s because of swelling and you say no, and then she says “Oh so it’s just Christmas huh?” you know you are packing on the poundage.   Let’s just be thankful that Lee and I produce very thirsty babies.

This month I also had Wendy take a bunch of other preggo shots, before I get so big that it’s just sad.  And since I am already testing the tensile  strength of that shirt as it is, I’d say it was a good call.  She did an amazing job with my pictures, and I could not be happier.




Oh, and by the way, In case you wanted to know, I think my husband looks freaking HOT in our family pictures!  That’s all, carrying on…


dsc_4867oldskoolMy little Carmie looks so adorable in these shots, I love them!

She is growing up so fast, the complexity of her personality grows so much all the time now.  She says the funniest stuff to me on a constant basis.  I wish I could remember them all but the ones off the top of my head…

I asked her if she needed to go potty, and she said to me “No mom, I just have a wedgie in my tail”.  That made me laugh pretty hard. (And she is finally potty trained… YAY for me!  Not changing diapers anymore is the best ever!)

The other day when we were eating at white lime, I asked her if I could have one of her gummy worms and her only reply was “Sorry man”.

And just now as I was typing this she walked up to me and said “Mom, you are beautiful… You’re spoken hott!”  I think she got that from Lee calling me smokin’ hott.  I seriously love my family, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Blue Lily Photography!

I know I have been slacking in the blog department, but everyone has blog slumps… so I guess this is mine. I hope you don’t get too bored with a purely pregnancy related blog for the next few months, but wait… This is my blog so actually I don’t really care who it bores.

I am almost 17 weeks along now, and as you can see my belly is already growing quite rapidly (along with other parts of my body, some good and some not so good).  They say that on the 2nd baby your belly  pops out sooner, well that certainly is true with me.  I know my friends are sick to death with my complaining about maternity jeans, but I need some help.  Who knows where I can get some really cute maternity jeans that don’t look like maternity jeans?  I need something really low rise, that are long enough for me.  Preferably without the huge belly pouch, or baggy crotch.  There has got to be something out there, I just don’t know where to look.  So please help me.

I had my pregnancy check up earlier this week, and everything is looking really good.  The doctor was able to take some really good pictures of the baby’s anatomy including a great shot of the heart, spine, etc. So the baby is looking really healthy, Which is a huge relief that I made it past that 15 week mark!  Oh and yes it still looks like it is going to be a boy… Which we are excited about.

My Morning sickness is all but gone, YAY!  Even though I didn’t have it as bad this time, it is soooo nice to have a little energy back.

I will try my darnedest to think of some other blog post to do before now and my 5 month post, but I am not making any promises.

for shiz, up the spout

So yes, in fact… I am pregnant. I know the suspense is killing you.

Here is my month 3 shot by the always amazing, super talented, beautiful, smart, and funny Wendy of blue lily.

Huge surprise, since we have been trying for a long time, but I am finally out of my first trimester, so I guess I have to tell everyone sometime.

He is due to be born on February 27th, 2009. Yes that is exactly 3 years and 1 day after Carmen. I guess that is a fertile time of year for us or something ;). I am kinda glad that Carmen will be a little older, and not so much a baby herself. Then she can help out a lot more, and if I can get my butt in gear and potty train her, maybe I won’t have more than one baby in diapers at a time. Although I do feel a little bad for ruining both of these kid’s birthdays for about… oh the rest of their lives. But what can you do? It’s not like you can ever really plan these things.

I couldn’t wait any longer to tell everyone because, well let’s face it, this bump is getting harder and harder to hide all the time, I am just way too tired of sucking it in. With all the speculation and the fact that I am exhausted, and nauseous all day make it hard for me to keep it a secret any longer.

Yes I borrowed the fertility calculator so people would stop asking me all the time, It was not time to tell yet.

I am almost 13 weeks along, and so far this pregnancy has been really different than my other two. I have not thrown up one single time this pregnancy which is just about the hugest miracle EVER! It has made this awful morning sickness period go by so much faster. I am tired and a little nauseous all the time but not throwing up is just the BOMB.

I don’t know if you caught that I called the baby a “he” earlier in this post, but I am about 80% sure it is a boy. Obviously it is way too early in to guarantee it one way or the other yet, but I have had 3 ultrasounds so far and as my doctor puts it there is a definite “protrusion”.

Take a look at this and tell me if I’m wrong…

Do you think that will be embarrassing to my boy in years to come? One of the perks of parenthood…

I feel so blessed to be able to give this another try. So let’s cross our fingers for some good luck this time, and take a leap of faith that I am supposed to have announced this already.

Too late now, Let’s do this. :)
