21 Week Bumpdate!!

21 weeks? Holy shit! How am I already halfway through this pregnancy? Thank goodness for BabyCenter which keeps me up to date...oh and my growing belly!

Hi baby (yet-to-be-named) boy!!..and scuzzy school bathroom..

New maternity top courtesy of Old Navy..gotta love that signature side ruching.

I feel like my belly doubled in size since we found out the gender last week. One day i'm wearing my regular pants and the next i'm busting out the maternity clothing. And i'm wearing leggings for the second time already this week. Praise the lord for working in a district with no actual dress code!

Total Weight Gained/Loss? At my 17 week appointment I had gained a whopping 6 pounds. I head back to the doctor tomorrow..and pretty sure that number has doubled due to amount of DQ blizzards that I am inhaling on a weekly basis

Maternity Clothes? Oh absolutely. Tops & pants. Just so much more comfortable. I change into yoga pants as soon as I get home. I'm anxiously awaiting a package from Gap with some new maternity clothing. Especially the support camis that will hopefully keep my new porn-star boobs in place. 

Sleep? Like heaven on earth. I can't wait to crawl into bed at night..only to wake up a few hours later to pee..and pee some more. It's like a geyser up in here.

Best Moment of the Week? Finding out we are having a boy..and beginning to feel little kicks and jabs from our future soccer player.

Cravings? Ice cream, popsicles, iced coffee, Golden Peak iced tea. Anybody see a trend here?

Gender? BOY!!!

Labor Signs? No thank you.

What I miss? Having a margarita for Cinco de Mayo! Missing out on all the drinking holidays clearly.

What I'm looking forward to: Purchasing boy crib bedding, ransacking the Pottery Barn Kids outlet, clearly shopping is on the brain today.

Happy Hump Day!

Playing Catch-Up

Because I haven't blogged since like Will2K came out, I figured it was time to get this forgotten blog up to date with our crazy life..

and this new Blogger is certainly throwing me off. Why do they insist on making changes when the old version was just fine? Like that facebook timeline shit. I can't stand it. I refuse to switch until they force me dammit.

So what's been up with the L family?

First of all..we survived the chicken pox. Thank god it was a mild case and she was only out of the babysitter for a few days. We had plenty of oatmeal baths and calamine lotion rubdowns. Plus lots of mommy and daddy 2 am, 4 am, 6 am. I guess that's what I get for following an alternative vaccination schedule that delays the chicken pox vaccine. Thanks Jenny McCarthy.

Luckily the chicken pox cleared up just in time for my Spring Break. We headed down South to Hilton Head Island for a week and then spent Easter weekend in Pinehurst with my family. It was a much-needed vacation, after a stressful few months at work and the pox. Our days were filled with sunshine, bike-riding, boat-spotting, and swimming. Saige also managed to wrangle the dogs into being her own personal playmates and pillows.

And on the baby #2 home front..we just found out yesterday that we are having a little BOY!!! We are absolutely thrilled with the news that a handsome little man will be joining our family in September. I was 20 weeks yesterday and desperately need to do a pregnancy update. Thanks for all sticking around as my blogging skills have been far below sub par in the past month..
Have a fabulous weekend
