28 weeks..and some othe stuff

28 weeks and some days. 3rd did time fly??? Finally Olivia decides to have growth spurt and make me look pregnant! Although, I am feeling very pregnant lately. I have had some major pain going on for the past week. I know it is Round Ligament...but seriously it hurts. I never had this stuff with Lily Anne and I am thankful. Olivia has been so active, rolling and kicking all day and night. I think she is going to give quite a run for my money.

I am really looking forward to meeting her more and more each day. I wonder how Lily Anne will adjust, how will Mich, the dog....wait or ME for that matter. Somedays I am freaking out about having two little ones, then others I am like this is going to be fun.

No survey this week...I have something better!!! 4d u/s photo!

We had such a great u/s yesterday. Olivia was active and awake. Plus she has finally made it to the vertex (head down) postion. Wohoo!!! We got some great photos and she looks a lot like her big sister. Oh and the big kicker...she sucks her thumb too! Wonderful...TWO thumb suckers.


Lily Anne turned 19 mos this past Tuesday! She is getting to be such a ham. Potty Training has been a great success and Lily Anne is making huge progress with each day. I could not be mroe proud of her and all that she is accomplishing in such a short time.
Also, she is doing wonderful at the new daycare. She is finally walking into her class and barely crying. So I would say success here too!
I think all the change has helped her with her personality that is blooming on a daily basis. She learning new words and repeating more and more. I am constantly working on this with her and trying to get her to use her words.

27 weeks and Day #3

How Far Along: 27 weeks and some days

Size of baby: I think I read ... she should be around 2lbs

Total Weight Gain/Loss: as of this morning....9lbs

Maternity Clothes: pants yes, top some here and there.

Gender: Girl - Olivia Claire

Movement: wow....she is more active than Lily Anne was. I feel her all the time. Although strange I am only feeling movement below my belly button....nothing up top. I am wondering if she is still transverse.

Sleep: benadryl has been my best friend lately...with my running nose and watering eyes...not to mention it puts me to sleep.

Symptoms: OMG the HEEARTBURN!! Seriously I am really struggling with it lately. Somedays are better than others. But when it hits, I need to run to the nearest fire hydrant...because this has got to be doing some damage.

What I Miss: being heartburn free. I have so much more respect for those who suffer on a daily basis!

Best Moment of the week: I guess making it to 3rd tri.

What I am looking forward to: the 4D ultra sound next Wednesday...I am really excited to see what she looks like. Lily Anne's was pretty much right on!


DAY #2 WRAP UP: I picked her up and she was a little more fussy than usual but she seemed to have a good day. She is definitely becoming aware of the potty thing. Because last night she had a uh-oh look and ran to the bathroom. It was a little late but it is progress on her learning the whole potty thing is about. I am proud!

Day #3: Mich says she walked to her classroom as she did yesterday. She cried just a little bit. Mich seemed to think she is getting better with it. I am going to give a good two weeks.

New Daycare

Day #1:

Mich and I tackled this hurdle together. Lily Anne woke up bright eyed and happy... I thought Oh boy! But we got to the center and Lily Anne was really calm and smiling. Lily Anne waved to some teachers in the front area. Off we went to her new classroom....Lily Anne just looked around and was like seriously?!?! After going over the rules and was time to let go. It was hard becuase Lily Anne decided...okay now cry and bring out the big tears. We left the room quietly. My heart was a littl torn at the moment.

We had to sign some forms in the front office...but right before we left Mich walked down the hallway and sneaked a small peek at Lily Anne ...NOT crying anymore but staying close to a teacher.


So after a full day and lot of activity and a Valentine's day party.....Lily Anne was happy to see daddy at the door to pick her up. The teachers said she did really good and sat on the potty several times and no tears. Lily Anne did keep her lovey attached to her hand all day...but as she becomes more comfortable she will let her lovey go.


Day #2: Mich called and told me she did really well. She walked to her room and took off her jacket. Even put it in her cubby. She did cry when the teacher came to walk her to circle time. Hopefully this will continue to get better and better!

Lily Anne Update!!!

It has been a stressful week with all the stuff going on... moving the house around to make room for the new nursery, dr appt's, and getting Lily Anne ready for a the big move in daycare.

So, lets see here...Lily Anne has been a super helper when it come moving furniture and stuff around the house to empty Olivia's future room. Now we just have to plan a day to paint it.

Lily Anne had her 18mo check up...she did awesome. She is 33.5in tall and weighs 23lbs! Tall and skinny. We talked about potty training and was told we could try it now or wait. We are deciding to go with the 'lets try"...Lily Anne is pullign her pants down and saying dirty to me all the time. So, i think she is getting ready. Pulling out the potty she got for Christmas.

Yeah, the daycare.....We are moving Lily Anne to a new location same Center...but different location. It has put me in a high anxiety related state....I am constantly questionly if it is right. I know in the long run it will be the best...but it first few days of screams that is going to have me saying why I am doing this again!?!?

I love her current center and know I will love her new one....but I am excited that her new classroom will help with the potty training...(at I am crossing my fingers). She moves to the toddler A! no baby classrooms any more.... Lily Anne will be doing and learning so many new things and hopefully her word out put will increase.

Alright til Monday...the big switch day!!
