Happy Days

How far along? 27 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: 26 pound gain
Maternity clothes:I found myself browsing my favorite shopping area on Columbus Day, and Gap maternity had AMAZING sales, the clothes feel like heaven, and I know these new shirts will stay with me even after the pregnancy is over! Can’t beat that.
Stretch marks? None
Sleep: The twinsomnia is still awful, with the exception of Sunday night. WOW, best night’s sleep I’ve had in MONTHS. 7 hours of pure blissful uninterrupted rest!
Best moment this week: Everything on Monday! From the moment I woke up from that amazing sleep, until my delicious piece of lemon raspberry cheesecake (from the cheesecake factory) for dessert!
Miss Anything? Missing my family. Probably because I’m SUPER close to seeing them all! and HOCKEY
Movement: Lots. I can’t tell the difference btn the gummies moving anymore. It’s all one solid crazy hockey game in there!
Food cravings: Apples. Honeycrisp this time of year are unreal.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Typical heartburn, but not related to anything inparticular.
Gender prediction: I had a dream 2 nights ago that I found out we were having girls, but I’m not convinced…two boys!
Labor Signs: None
Symptoms: Acid reflux, cramping/numbness/sore muscles in my legs

Belly button in or out? Neither, it’s just kind of…there
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: MISO happy J
Looking forward to: Receiving a few items I purchased online, maybe this week! Keith comes home in 8 days, whoop whoop

More pumpkins!  I have these everywhere downstairs.  I called it quits
after a crafting carpet accident.  Oops

So far I've had a fabulous week.  Monday can be attributed to my "day off" from pregnancy.  I had an amazing, restful sleep, relaxed on the hammock in the morning and felt glorious sun up to sun down!  That dose of sunshine gave me SO much energy I ventured out for some Columbus Day sales!  Not only do I officially have baby clothing in the house, I have maternity clothing as well!!!  Why, oh why did I wait so long to invest in some basics?  Mommies-to-be, highly recommending Gap Maternity wear!  Everything is ultra soft, and on itchy skin it feels like wonderful fluffy clouds.

This morning I had a good appointment and got to see the gummybears!  That was a nice little surprise since I thought it was just a simple checkup.  Wish I had a cute photo to post, but the technician was new and took some terrible pictures, not even worth putting up.  I also had my gestational diabetes testing.  Hopefully my levels come back low so I don't have to do a follow-up 3 hour screen.

Funny experience today at the grocery store.  On my way to the checkout I realized I forgot marshmellows to make more rice crispy treats.  I ditched the cart near the checkout line, found an empty shelf of marshmellows, but wound up walking back to the cart with two items in hand....sour gummy worms and a jar of bread and butter pickles.  I was a walking pregnancy clich√©!  Ha, I hope I made someone laugh.

While delicious beef stew brews in the crock pot I have the 2nd crib to piece together, and the new Ikea catalog calling my name!  Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!

Hugs and Kisses
Before I start the tissue poms for the nursery I thought I'd try out the cupcake toppers.  These were super fun to make, and add a funky flare.  Learn how to make them here
