{29 weeks}

After working in the yard/garden all day! Baby Bozarth is going to have a GREEN THUMB!

Look at that belly button.

How far along? 29 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: The dr. said I had gained only 13 lbs :) and 3 lbs. 4 oz is baby! He is measuring big.  The sono tech asked us if either of us were big babies....Uh Oh....... She said he is in the 68 percentile for growth.  Wow! He's a grower! Head and belly are measuring ahead to 30 weeks and legs measuring right on track at 29 weeks. He looked so sweet and cozy in there and was rubbing his eyes.  Tired boy.
Maternity clothes? not too many.  I own one pair of maternity skinny jeans that I love.  My co-worker on Friday said "How the heck are you still wearing skinny jeans...?" I had to laugh because they are my only maternity jeans and the only jeans that really fit without using the hair tie trick. 

Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: Sleeping well, but still tired.
Best moment this week: I feel like we are getting so close to meeting our baby! Stroller ready to go and we finally got it on Friday! {SEE THAT POST HERE}, car seats are ready to go, nursery almost ready to go! I'm excited! Mama also did some shopping for herself yesterday.  It's about time.  I now have my dresses for both showers, and bought some clothes {not maternity} that I can wear now and later.  I bought this peach shirt that is just beautiful!  

My mama and I also did some gardening/planting this weekend, which I love! After about $100 of plants and things {her and I both} we made some progress.  So pretty!

And as cheesy as it sounds, yesterday when I woke up I felt an overwhelming thankfulness for my husband and my puppy and our home and everything that we have been blessed with.   I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!
Miss Anything? Wine :( Sangria - Mike and I had a date night at Lidia's by Union Station on Saturday night.  Everyone was drinking all sorts of yumminess..... :( The food was delish as always.  We got a pic of us just because I feel like we never get dressed up much anymore.  It was so much fun!

Movement: Oh yes, it was funny to see the sonogram and see where all the movement I feel is coming from. His butt is right up under my right rib cage, his little piggies are on my left side and his head is down.
Food cravings: Mac & Cheese, potatoes, SWEETS! As always my biggest weakness is sweets.  Mike made fun of me at dinner because I barely ate my meal, he said I was subconsciously saving room for dessert {which I did ironically eat all of.... }

Can't live without my tiramisu and decaf coffee. I mean baby B cant.......

Anything making you queasy or sick: some meat
Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: No, I was getting some pain yesterday but it quickly passed.  

Symptoms: Very tired, feeling stuffed, lower back pain
Belly Button in or out? OUT! I think it's cute :)
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: Next weekend, just because it's the weekend...and my baby showers! May 5th - family and family friends and May 19th my friends shower.

{stroller love}

I am really in love with this one! I mean it this time :)  I get so excited about anything that has to do with this baby! We finally got our Hauck stroller on Friday and got right to work putting it together.  Let me just say, the instructions are literally gibberish. Literally. My mom and I looked at it for a hour and barely figured  it out.  Mike cam home from work and couldn't figure it out. Finally we got it! It comes with a bassinet stand and obviously the toddler seat that we will use after a while.  I was most excited about the bassinet and the universal car seat adaptor, which are the 2 items we will be using right away.  Anyway I made my photog husband {I kid} take a picture of it because I was so excited.  Mike said that he really likes it too and that I made a good decision... I know dear :) This is it just on the bassinet setting, which took us another hour to figure out ;) Anyway we think it will be an awesome stroller now that we know how to do everything and the best part is that it's light weight {and freaking adorable}! I know I can't lift much!

Yes, that's my stomach.

{28 weeks}

How far along? 28 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: I would say close to 14 lbs. and let me tell you I'm feeling it!  We will find out for sure on Friday!
Maternity clothes? not many :)  Happy to say.  I'm mainly using the hair tie trick 

Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: It comes and goes.  I took a mini cat nap today with my husband and puppy.  I just feel tired no matter what lately.
Best moment this week: Baby B's crib skirt checked off of my to-do list - and we are hanging the canopy tonight over his crib! I am so very excited with how it turned out! Just like I pictured!

Sweet boy's dreamy crib
Some more of the skirt and pictures for his nursery

Rough edges for a more "boy" feel - as always very neutral :) The crib sheet  says " I love Mommy    Daddy loves me"

Calvin wondering what the heck is going on. 

I got his closet completely cleared out yesterday and stood in front of it for an hour trying to figure out how I will organize everything.  Also, it's been nice to finally see a light at the end of the tunnel when entering the 3rd trimester! I want my baby to be here!
Miss Anything? wine, beer, the Royals game was hard. Coronas and beer were everywhere :(
Movement: Ab-so-lutely! All over the place.  It's almost jolting now!
Food cravings: Milk, sweets, chocolate is now a daily thing.
Anything making you queasy or sick: not really, hot dogs at the Royals game kind of made me dry heave. I have been getting nauseous the past couple of mornings but it's because I sleep in and have nothing in my stomach.
Gender: BOY!
Labor Signs: nope 

Symptoms: Indecisiveness! Refer to stroller post from a couple days back - ha! Mike would say I've always had this symptom.....sore back and muscles, tired, dry eyes {possibly pregnancy allergies}, outtie belly button {is that a symptom? I think so!
Belly Button in or out? refer to last question
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Slightly moody but mostly happy :)
Looking forward to: Dr. appointment on April 20th, we get to see baby B again as well as the dreaded glucose test.

{Indecisive Mommy Syndrome}

Do you have it too?? Who knows what the heck is going on with me?  I fell in love with the Peg Perego stroller that we purchased last weekend.  Now I'm out of love {Mike should be very afraid - just kidding honey!} with it.  I took it back today.  We bought another one because I figured out what I really wanted in a stroller was an all black one that has a bassinet attachment.  I read up on car seats and all and blah blah it's bad for baby's back for long periods of time apparently when they're newborns, but that's not the reason at all.  When we were over in Europe I was absolutely in love with all stroller prams.  AKA Bassinet - in Euro language. I saw one when I went out to lunch the other day and I literally drove by the new parents, stalker style and asked what brand the stroller was because I spotted it from afar.  Cheating on my Peg Perego.  She smiled and said "Hauck Malibu".  I immediately looked it up! Gorgeous and reasonable! $299 for the stroller, car seat adapter, bassinet, and bassinet stand, which we can use for him to take naps in even when not using the stroller. LOVE! We will still use the Peg Perego car seat and luckily I did my research and this stroller will work with the car seat because it has a universal adaptor.

And yes I just basically did a post on my indecisiveness. You're welcome :) Anywho, here's the new stroller, of course I'll post pictures when I get it as well {ordered online}. I can't wait to see baby B in it :)))

{27 weeks}

How far along? 27 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: more than 12 lbs! For sure! I feel like he's grown so much in just 2 weeks!
Maternity clothes? Trying very hard not to, I'm lucky that I can just wear loose sundresses from now on, and flip flops! 

Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: Sleeping very well....
Best moment this week: We entered the THIRD and FINAL trimester today! Also, we finally purchased our stroller! We love it! There's something to be said about a little more high quality stroller.  It just seems like such a breeze to operate :) 
Can't wait til my little love is in it!! 

And of course Easter!

My mom and I did some major shopping for baby B this weekend! My hubby went to see him college roomies in Dallas this long weekend, we both came back Sunday morning for Easter but it was so fun all the shopping we did! 
Miss Anything? Nope!
Movement: YES! My mom and Johnny finally felt him yesterday.  We were sitting at this amazing restaurant Baxter's on the lake and I grabbed John's hand to feel it.  He was like "That was something bony, like a knee or elbow or heel or something!" It feels so weird! At first it was just kicks here and there now you can feel body parts! I think it's so funny.
Food cravings: Easter food! Yum! Potato salad was my favorite! And obviously from the picture I had my fair share of sweets, too which have been my greatest weakness this pregnancy.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, I'm actually ok with meat lately.
Gender: Sweet Baby Boy!
Labor Signs: Nope

Symptoms: Major round ligament pain, beginning to get some lower back pain, my feet hurt when standing for periods of time.
Belly Button in or out? out!
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! 
Looking forward to: Getting baby B's room finally put together this weekend {fingers crossed}, and still my upcoming baby showers!
