Week 27

Anyone ever have indigestion? Well I hadn't until now. That's why I had no idea what it was until someone at work said (after me explaining to them that I want to vomit everynight when I lay down) that I may have indigestion. Apparently the tomato based foods that I'm eating aren't agreeing with me right now :( SO sad about that, since I mainly make foods that have crushed tomatos in them or pasta sauce or something. But that horrible feeling in my stomache/throat was keeping me up at night. And not only tomato based stuff, but coffee has been doing it to. Not sure what other foods won't agree with me, but I'll let you know. Also...not sure if those pains I mentioned I was having in my chest are actually heartburn? I have also never had heartburn before but people at work are saying maybe that's what that is? Who knows? All I know, is it is super duper uncomfortable and I hate it. I'm also not sleeping very well lately. Over the past week it just continues to get worse and worse. My hips are absolutely killing me. Not being able to sleep on your stomache or back is the pits. I'm trying a bunch of different pillow methods so pray for me that I'll find something that works. I really need to get my sleep at night. It's draining me and stressing me out. OK enough of all the bad about some good news? Well look at the picture...isn't the baby bump getting even cuter? I gotta tell you...this baby can move. He kicks and squirms ALL day and night long. Aaron noticed my belly lopsided last night. It was so cute. I think his bum (not Aaron's) was completely pushed out to one side - maybe it was his head. That's not the first time that's happened, but the first time Aaron has actually seen it. Too cute. Well, we have our follow up doctors appt next week on Wednesday. That's where I have to do the sugar/diabetes test, get weighed again, probably will get the flu shot and hopefully get a lot of questions answered by my doctor. I'll fill you all in next week on what she has to say! Happy Halloween!

Week 26

Next time you're browsing through the meat department, pick up a 2 lb chuck roast. No, not for dinner, but to see just how big baby Katz is this week :) ha. That's how week 26 starts out in our "what to expect" book. Can you believe baby Katz is roughly 2 lbs this week and roughly 14" head to toe? I'm still not really sure just how this baby is fitting in my belly, but I'm sure he's nice and snug in there. He's still moving around like crazy in there and definitely getting stronger. Those little punches and kicks are harder on mommy and I can actually see my belly move a little. I did end up going out last weekend and buying a few more maternity things, but still need a few more. And not sure if I mentioned it last week, but I am noticing myself getting more tired lately. Aaron and I are always busy and on the go, I actually forget sometimes that I'm pregnant and need to relax and take it easy. But good news...our baby furniture (crib and dresser) are being delivered tomorrow and set up! Yeah. Now I just need the bedding to start pulling the room together. If any of you are following my registry. You'll notice I had to register for a different bedding set, but I like it just as much. Take a
Well...nothing much else is new this week! Until next week...

Week 25

It's groooowwwing....and I officially wore my first pair of "maternity" pants this week. Good stuff! Those things are comfortable. I'm still holding onto a lot of my regular pants and using the belly band though, but I do really need to go out and buy myself some maternity clothes. It's slim pickings lately. So not too much new since last week. We started washing and hanging some of the baby's clothing we received from family and friends. I can't get over how small some of those little onsies are! Unbelievable. Our baby furniture came in too! Yeah. Oh, one quick note...we cancelled the baby bedding that we registered for at Restoration Hardware. They discontinued one of the pieces so now I have to find a new one :( what a bummer. I'll keep you all posted as to where we register for our bedding. OH, actually, there are a couple new things to tell you all. My girlfriend who's also pregnant and I started prenatal yoga this week. We figured it would be a nice thing to do together and get our body stretching in the ways it needs to...haha. Aaron and I also signed up for a birthing class that we'll be taking in November. I'm actually very excited about it. I think it'll be a good reality for Aaron and I in terms of what the labor and delivery will be like. I feel like it's just around the corner and it's starting to freak me out. The only other thing I can tell you this week is that I'm starting to get these really uncomfortable pains in my belly button. I t feels like baby Katz is trying to poke through with a sharp pencil - OUCH!!! It lasts for about 15 minutes and then goes away. I'm also having a ton of pressure in my lower belly. Who knows...maybe it's the baby sitting on my bladder, but man it's a strange feeling. And the last thing I can tell you is that we've started looking into daycare and man oh man is it expensive. Absolutely unbelievable. We are taking a tour of 1 place next week and have a few more that we want to check out. Soooooo much to do before that little one arrives, but it's all good/fun stuff. Check back next week. I'll probably be twice as big as this week!

Week 23 & 24

I can not believe we're in our 6th month and ending week 24. Time is going by way too fast :( So as you can see, my belly is growing, maybe not quite as fast as it should be, but the doctor's don't seem worried. I will most likely be clothes shopping this weekend since the clothes fitting me these days are few and far between. Wearing the same pants all the time just doesn't seem right OR sanitary! ha. So Jamaica was fun. VERY relaxing - just what I needed. I wish I could have posted a picture or two from there but our camera broke on the 2nd day and I haven't received the pictures yet from my sister. I'll post one next week. It's cute - Aaron's in it too. And I swear, I WAS tan, but it's fading very fast. So let's see...what is new with baby Katz...well the book says he's outgrown the fruit stage and now get's measured in inches, so he's just over a foot long and weighs about 1.5 lbs! Aaron and I met with the fetal medicine specialist this morning. My OB wanted to triple check with him that I didn't need to take any precautions throughout the rest of the pregnancy. To be on the safe side and because it won't harm the baby he's putting me back on aspirin (a baby aspirin), once a day up until 36 weeks in case I go early and then immediately following the birth. Throughout pregnancy and right after is when it's common for woman (especially in my case) to develop blood clots, so he wants to reduce that risk with the aspirin. :( booooo. Otherwise, we're doing great and feeling great. Except for the chest pain I get at night. I think it's the weight of my growing breasts (not really that big though) that press together my ribs or something while laying on my side. It's really painful, but goes away as soon as I lay on my back...which is something I'm not supposed to do. My hips hurt too from having to lay on my side all night, but I'm ok with that...little baby Katz is too damn cute to care. Well...that's it for now. Miss you all!
