28 weeks 4 days for me. I didn't feel like taking a belly pic this week since we were away all weekend and I'm just feeling they are a burden! I'll take one this weekend, though.

I've just started feeling Sean's hiccups! September is also my baby shower, so just with everything I'm feeling like I'm in the home stretch! Since Sean will be full-term the last weekend in October, September could potentially be my last full month as a preggo!

Jackson is three weeks old today!

I'm really enjoying every single second with him. And I just love it when DH gets home from work each day and wants to steal him away from me. Then I just watch him admire his son. It's so sweet.

I'm still feeling a little icky from the delivery. I'm just spotting now for the most part, though it picks up a little bit here and there (like if I've been sitting for a long time and stand up or first thing in the morning). My stitches felt fine at the 2-week point, but they started stinging a bit a couple days ago. That was a day that I was up and about more than usual, so I guess that's the reason. I really wish they would just completely heal already.

I don't want to overdo things like household chores because I don't want to delay the healing any further, but I really need to clean my house! I'm doing little bits here and there, but Jackson is pretty demanding. DH will be a big help this weekend.

Here's a video that I took of my little guy yesterday. DH has wanted me to catch him sneezing on video, and Jackson obliged me... and then gave another surprise at the end. Yes, those are socks on his hands because the mittens just aren't staying on and my doctor told me not to trim his nails until he's a month old.

I love him so much.

I will add a picture in soon but I am at 24 and 2. Yay for viability. Complications seem to be holding steady so no new scaries. Fetal echo is next week and that is the last real hurtle until we start NST's and weekly fluid checks at 32. I feel like after that I am just on a countdown to whenever something doesn't pass and out she comes. I am hoping for a not too early delivery so we shall see how everything goes!

Dani- cant believe that your baby is almost here, you must be so excited!@!
Karin- You look, great, I think that you have popped quite a bit this last week - less bloat, more pregnant!
Robyn- hooray for third trimester! LOL, I love hiccups, Maiya got them all the time inside (though Kaiden never had them) - funny enough cause Kaiden never had them when he came out and Maiya still has them all the time
Adrienne - Jackson is so adorable, I followed your pregnancy (loved the pictures and cant wait to watch Jackson "grow up" He is SO CUTE - even the puke (both of mine are super pukers - see picture so I can truely appreciate puke!)!! BTW, Kaiden ended up wearing socks on his hands (those stupid mittens dont fit newborns) for 6 weeks cause he would claw his face so much...Maiya hasnt needed them as much, but she also had a few weeks of wearing socks)
Crystal - Congrats on viability!! NO matter what the situation, it is always a HUGE sigh of relief to know that they can make it out in the world from there!

As for me, Maiya will be 4 months on September 7 - time is absolutely flying!!
She is the sweetest most smiley, loveable girl, though the last week was rough - I think her gums were bothering her, cause she was fisting her mouth and drooling something awful!
But, today she was back to her normal smiley self, so hooray for that
Kaiden will be 2.5 years old on September 8, its so weird because it seriously feels like yesterday when I was struggling month after month with TTC to get him here...
He is AMAZING, he was so slow with words (had about 30 by 2 years old)...now he has about 1000, and complete sentences - he calls himself "the Kaiden"...
He has started to actually swim in the last few days (like jumping in the deep end, coming up and getting himself to the wall by himself) which is so amazing...and except for the occasional kicks in the head, he is a wonderful big brother and loves giving "kisses to the My-My"...
I think my heart has truly doubled in size
A few pics:

Today, laughing with mommy:

Tummy time (she is getting SO strong):

Kaiden loves Maiyas hairbows, so when I want to take family pics, he insists that we all wear her hairbows - and he has to wear the "yeyyow", I have to wear the "geen", My-My has to wear the pink, and daddy has to wear the blue <3:

My kids know how to puke, yes this is all puke (and goes around my back), and though this is a bit more than normal, this is fairly common every day:


I was taking a picture of Maiya, and Kaiden wanted me to take a picture of him, I told him to say "cheese" and I got true "cheese" in this shot, LOL!:

Hi Ladies! Mari is growing like a weed and talks from sun up to sun down! Hard to believe that she will be 3 next month!!

As for us, we will be starting TTC #2 on THURSDAY!!! Well, at least that's when my Implanon is scheduled to come out of my arm and hopefully we will be able to catch an eggie at some point within the next three months to time a birth during my summer break away from classes. If we don't conceive by Nov, we will try again next year to time a birth for when I graduate from my program.

Would really appreciate some prayers or positive thoughts/vibes or anything you can muster for my cycle to become regular immediately (I have PCOS so this could be tricky)!!!

It is so nice seeing an update from you!! Lots of prayers/good vibes will be coming your way and I expect to see a bfp update soon.

For the kids, Darcy is 20 months right now. She's saying all sorts of things now and is just a goofball. Rowan is 10 months and has taken a few unassisted steps. She also will say uh oh and bye bye (though I doubt she really knows what it means). Here is one of them together.

And for me, I will be 10 weeks tomorrow. My couple and I have decided next tuesday when "the new normal" airs on nbc, i'll announce what i'm doing. Here is a picture taken from today. Most likely bloat, but i'm seriously poppin'! Lol.

love reading all the updates!!

Jackson is 9 days old today and doing great! We had a very rough start to breastfeeding but we are good now and he is eating like a champ! We have our second weight check today and I'm sure he is over his birth weight at this point. He's such a good baby. He gives us 3-4 hour stretches at night which is nice!

Bella is almost 3 (6 more weeks) and is an awesome toddler. She is fully potty trained (except for night time) which I love only having one in diapers! She loves her baby brother and likes being my little helper when I need it. I love life with two kids. It's so much better than expected and Jackson just rolled into our routine, no problem!

I love seeing all these updates. Everybody moving along in their pregnancies. And the newest beautiful babies!!

For my update. Well my beautiful Caylyn is almost 9 months old. She talks and says "mama", "dada" and "baba" I think she actually understands what she is saying because she will look at me or DH and say the proper "mama" or "dada" I think it helps that Dh and I call each other "mommy" and "daddy" not sweetheart or hun anymore!! She has taken donzens of steps assisted, but has yet to show any interest in crawling!! She has 2 teeth that have come through in the past 2 weeks and her 3rd is already starting to make it's appearance.

My mom and I have been working hard and recently completed our first ever 5k. We were so proud of us. We were normally walking around a 18 min mile. However during the 5k we had a push to run the last 1/2 mile and ended up with a final time of 42.13. Which is a 13.58 min mile. We cut off 5+ minutes off our normal time. We were so proud of ourselfs. Caylyn ended up falling asleep!!

DH and I have recently started talking about #2. We aren't too sure on when we are going to start trying as my AF hasn't been normal yet. (I'm still pumping) But are thinking probably starting to try in November or December and just seeing what happens. (I'm rather excited about this because I miss being preggo, however the thought of 2 scares me too!!)

Here are a few pictures of my beautiful baby girl!! I just want to cry on how fast she is growing up!! The last picture is of us at the finish line!!

Right before she took 4 steps!!

She loves watermelon!!

My mom and I at the end of our first 5k.

Jacky - Mommy to Caylyn (12/17/11) and Carter (10/8/13)
