We're managing! Andrew is getting pretty big - he'll be 2 months tomorrow! - starting to smile and coo and roll from tummy to back for real (instead of just flailing his arms and legs so hard he topples). He's sleeping a consistent 6-8 hour stretch to start the night (then giving me another 1.5-3 hours to finish it up), and is a pretty good baby, except he HATES to ride in the car (total scream fest) and refuses to let me put him down for more than 5 minutes at a time during the day. So it's still REALLY hard to accomplish much! I figure that'll pass sooner or later though, so I roll with it.
Sebastian is doing good; he'll be 5 months on Saturday He's a great baby - laid back, smiles & laughs a lot, loves to cuddle. Usually wakes up 1x/night to eat, but we've had a few STTN nights too. He's eating cereal & some fruits and veggies now.
I'm fine, just starting to realize that I'm going to have a baby. lol
I'm kind of bummed that I have to tone down my activity level, but also very excited to be more than halfway done and ready to have a little boy!
Grey is doing great. He's 4 1/2 months now, barrel rolls, plays with toys, loves watching his brothers play, "talks" a lot, starting to put his knees under his belly (he'll be crawling before I know it!), is laid-back and happy, wakes (usually) once a night (and now that I typed that I'm sure it'll be 2 or 3 times tonight, haha), overall a healthy and wonderful baby!
Mason is doing great. I took him for his 2 month visit today and he's 13 lb 2 oz and 24 1/2" long. 90% for weight and 95% for height. He's a very healthy boy. He sleeps about 8 hours between feedings and then again for another 2-3 after. He's awake a lot during the day now. He loves being held all of the time but is getting used to his swing. He is starting to roll from tummy to back He smiles quite a bit. Overall, he's a pretty happy, content baby and Ethan loves him to pieces.
I have 3 weeks to go (or possibly less, I have a feeling this one is going to be a week or two early)! No updated picture yet, I need to take one tomorrow. The midwives estimate she'll be around 6 1/2 lbs at birth, which is on par with my other babies. She's doing good; I'm having some anxiety issues this time around, especially when she changes up her movement pattern on me. I'm not quite ready to give birth though.... not ready to let go just yet. Another 2 weeks maybe.
Marjorri is...so freakin' precious! I totally love this girl. I am completely elated with the fact I have a daughter. I love my boys but having a girl is so different...she's a lil ME! She weighs 9 lbs 2 oz and is still 21 inches long. Loves to cuddle and be close to mama too. She loves her breast milk and doesn't mind a bottle. Right now she's waking 2-3x a night to eat, and I'll usually do 1-2 diaper changes then too.
Jack loves being a big brother and is very attentive and affectionate with her. Ben doesn't seem to care one bit that she exists. lol
I can not believe how old all the "newborns" are right now. This last year has just gone by so fast!!!
Ive got about 3 weeks to my due date, but im hoping and praying to go a little early, even though its never happened before. i have been having contractions since about 33 weeks, some regular, some not, and just this last week they have really picked up in intensity and frequency. So im hoping its my body knowing what to do. i was finger tip dialated at 33 weeks when they checked me becuase of my contractions but havent been checked since. I get checked "officially" for the first time on tuesday and im hoping to have made some progress.
My mom is flying down when we have the baby, so im hoping to go a little early, since my family is coming the 2nd week of june, and if i go late, i dont think she will come 2 times. So im being selfish and wanting her to come like a week before my due date so i can see my mommy. lol
Here is me at 35 weeks, its the most recent i have and im in not physical appearance condition to take one right now, nor do i want to, lol
My belly button went flat for the first time in 3 pregnancies, it actually sticks out a little now to, kind of neat since my other 2 were innies the whole time.
And here is miss Olivia- for those who havent seen my FB pics
I am up about 20lbs, i havent gained anything in about 3 weeks, which is starting to concern me, but not my OB. Ive actually lost a pound, i contribute it to the workout i get from lugging around a 9-10lb child, lol
Mackenzie is SO excited for Olivia to be born, she asks if she is coming today every day, and at night asks if she will be coming in the morning. Charlie does not get it, but ive come to terms with a clingy toddler and a newborn, so im no longer afraid of that happening.
Im very uncomfortable, but really at peace with this pregnancy. I thought i would have more nerves as the end got closer, but i really dont. Im over pregnancy though, this has been the hardest one yet, energy wise and emotionally since i have basically gone through it alone.
