Celebrating Sawyer

This past Saturday, some of my lovelies threw a shower to celebrate sweet Sawyer. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful group of people in my life who love me. Here are some pictures...

Mark and I got everything that Sawyer needs and more. The girls from work are also throwing me a shower with some of the kids moms! That one is tomorrow, and we will have so many blessings to shower Sawyer with. We feel so blessed and lucky to have these people in our lives and in Sawyers.

31 weeks

Hold on while I blow the dust off of my blog.... There. That's better. : ) Yesterday we hit 31 weeks. Time seems to be flying by. Sawyer is very much the acrobat these days. Hit feet stay in my ribs and he enjoys punching me in the hips. He is also showing a bit more of his personality. If he kicks me, and I poke back he turns and kicks or jabs in the other side. He already seems to have his daddy's winning sense of humor. In other news, I finally threw up. HOLD THE PRESSES, yes, I finally got sick. Though, I can't call it morning sickness. It happened in the middle of the night last week after I had a bowl of very buttery popcorn before I went to bed. It was not pleasant, but all three dogs kept me company on the bathroom floor for a while. That same night I had horrible heartburn (I ended up sleeping straight up) and some vicious leg cramps. The girls at work were so sweet and let me come in a few hours late so I could catch up on my rest. It was very much appreciated. Mark rubbed my back and legs as I sobbed into my pillow, I just want to sleep! Sleeping has become quite difficult. I toss and turn and pee all night. My pelvis and crotch ache. (Sorry, is that TMI?) Crossing my legs is laughable...because it HURTS!

All complaining aside, I will take it. Baby boy seems very active and healthy and we are so close to meeting him! I can't wait to see what he looks like. I had another dream about seeing him, and feeling his weight on my chest. It was lovely, and of course I woke up crying. Oh, the hormones!

We also had our baby shower last weekend (which I will make a separate post about) and the nursery is filling up. I'm really excited about how it's coming together!

Here we are at 31 weeks....

Except for that weird place on the left side where my leggings are bunches up, I'm not looking too bad, all things considered. : ) 9 weeks left. Can you believe it?

28 weeks

OK, no. I didn't post a 26 week picture or update. Bad mama. I'm blaming the start of football season, work, trying to finish up things that need to be done around the house and heartburn. Holy, mother of heartburn. Like I sad this week in a facebook status, "Heartburn like lava. This baby better have a Mohawk!" : ) Technically the picture is 26 weeks and 7 days, but we are rolling with it.

Things are going well and I go this Friday for my glucose test. Pregnancy related, I am starting to feel the toll that pregnancy takes on your body. I am having some back pain, lots of heartburn (obviously), and I feel tired again like I did at the beginning, just not quite as bad. Eating is crazy. I feel like I am running out of room. Eating smaller meals helps, but then I don't get full enough and want to eat again later. Ah, well.

I made a few cute purchases this month that I can wait to preview in my nursery post... I have decided to make one monstrous post about all that later. The shower is coming up in like, 3 weeks or less! I am really getting excited! It's going to be really cute and I am so happy to have people in my life that want to shower baby Sawyer!

Things I am missing: Sleep. I am and always have been such a belly sleeper. Sleeping sucks at the moment. Rolling around all night long trying to get comfortable, limbs going numb, peeing every so often and then the heartburn. Have I mentioned the heartburn??? I'm also missing my abs. I never really thought I had much to begin with, but now I am thinking I might have been mistaken. It's hard to get out of bed..the the couch. Mark gets a good laugh out of helping me. : )

Wowza.. A month makes quite the difference, no? I have grown. : )
Looking more and more forward each week. Now that we are on the downhill side, I realize just 12 weeks until my due date. CRAZY. EXCITING. SCARY. UNIMAGINABLE!
