Week 23

I sorry I have not been on in a while we still have not figured out what to do about our computer problems. I had a doctors appointment last week. Belle is growing and is right on track. I gained a whole .2 pounds which still puts me under my prepregnancy weight. Several of my friends are pregnant too and all generally play the "guess the date game", but I am considering changing it to "guess the weight"  :) I only gained 23 lbs with James, and 16 with Jewel, and go home from the hospital weighing what I did before I was pregnant, so I am hoping this pregnancy will be a little bit of a "diet" for me (I would love to lose 10-20 lbs).

Cravings- Bacon, I have been loving bacon on salads and cheeseburgers, and anything!

Emotions- I cry over everything!

I am so excited to Olympics are on we have been watching non-stop.

I do need to ask for some prayers as I have been having several contractions lately. I am not sure if they are Braxton hicks or if they are actually doing something. I have not been to the hospital yet, but I am concerned with my two toddlers. Please pray for no bed rest!

Week 21

I am so tired this week. I am not sure if this pregnancy makes me more tired or if it is that I am chasing two toddlers on top of being pregnant. I have also been working on my projects around the house (We have already rearranged the living room). Bell is the size of a pomegranate this week. I am so excited to be on the down hill side of my pregnancy. Movement- She was actually pretty mellow up until this week, but now she is starting to become very very active. I guess she is just trying to keep up with her older siblings, that is something she will be doing for a very long time. Indigestion- Yes! I had it the other night after I ate some homemade chicken noodle soup. I have heard the old wives tale about it giving the baby hair, and have actually found it to be true. I had it from about this time on with my daughter and she was born with hair (yay! I love hair bows). My son on the other hand, I only had it at the end when he was so big that his feet were resting on my stomach. Chocolate milk is the only thing that helps, but sadly she does not like it, so I gag it down, and pray I do not lose it. Weight- I have an appointment next Monday. I have been afraid to weigh myself since my tummy has really popped out. Emotions- I cry at just about anything. I have been known to start crying when I look at one of my older children, because it really does go by very fast. Each pregnancy makes you think of previous ones, it really does seem like yesterday I was pregnant with him. Yesterday Jewel was sitting next to me when Bell started moving, so I put her hands on my tummy. She smiled so big and said "that Bell" and started kissing my belly. I pray they always have that love for each other :)

RIP Computer

Our computer died recently. I am blog when I can from my husband's iPad. He takes it to work, so I don't have it for the majority of the day, but I will try to at least post my pregnancy updates. Hopefully I will have a computer sometime in the next couple of weeks!
