20 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Size of Baby: I'm currently 20 weeks and baby weighs about 11 oz + is measuring about 6.5", or the size of a banana. 

Total Weight Gain: I would say I've gained 10-15 pounds. I'm not exactly sure how much I weighed before, so it's hard to gauge. 

Symptoms: I have to sleep on my left side. When on my right I literally feel like I can't breathe. And my body is going numb. So weird. Also, still hate brushing my teeth. I gag every.single.time. Other than that, I've been great!

Food Cravings/Aversions: I'm pretty much a sucker for fries, cheeseburgers, and McChickens. That's what I feel like my diet consists of. With some chips thrown in. 

Movement: Feeling more and more little kicks, but nothing that anyone else can feel yet.

Purchases: We've been stocking up on supplies for the beach! I bought a new swimsuit, another pair of shorts, and some unnecessary goodies for Wyatt and Stella.


Looking Forward To: Being at the beach with family for an entire week!!

He or She, What'll it Be??

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

In just a couple more days we get to find out the gender of our sweet Baby #3! The majority are saying boy, but obviously, we will be happy either way. For fun I wanted to see what my symptoms might mean.

What's your guess?? Can't wait to share with you all this weekend--watch our Instagram!

17 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Thursday, June 8, 2017

Size of Baby: I'm currently 17 weeks and baby weighs about 5 oz + is measuring about 5", or the size of a turnip or pomegranate (depending which app I look at ;)). 

Total Weight Gain: I would say I've gained about 10 pounds. I have an appointment next week so I'll have a better idea then.

Symptoms: I've been feeling great! So happy to have pool days back in our life...which means naps are officially back. I get full pretty quickly when I eat and my tummy definitely feels huge. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: I'm back to pretty much eating anything/everything I want. However, I still haven't gotten into a good dinner routine. I definitely crave salty/comfort food over sweets.

Movement: Still feeling flutters occasionally but nothing consistent or hard.

Purchases: I bought a couple more dresses for myself this past week. Thankfully they're just swing dresses, and not maternity, so I'll be able to continue to wear them next summer. I've done lots of browsing for baby items (which I know I don't need) but haven't pulled the trigger on anything.

Best Moment of the Week: We had a great weekend in Fayetteville--celebrated my birthday, hosted a baby shower for my sister, and spent time with family. Sean and I also had an anniversary date night on Tuesday which was so nice. 

Looking Forward To: The weekend and hopefully some family pool time! And a baby appointment next week!

My Princess Stella

She made broken look beautiful

and strong look invincible.

She walked with the Universe on her shoulders

and made it look like a pair of wings.
