How far along? 31 weeks, 5 days

Total weight gain? 25+ lbs.

Maternity Clothes? All the time... some of the early ones are getting to small.

Stretch Marks? Hoping and praying for "none" to continue. Hoping good genes keep strong.

Sleep? Limited and not good. I have to turn over every fews hours. I can sleep through the night but I have to get up and pee once or twice.

Best moment this week? Beating Republic by 21 last night wasn't bad. :) I love it when Molly gets the hiccups. That's a pretty good time too!

Movement? All the time. She LOVES orange juice. That really gets her going.

Food Cravings? everything I can get my hands on...apples and bananas

Labor Signs? Braxton Hicks are kicking in. The ute is preparing big time!!

Throw me to the tiger...at last...an update!

I tried to update last week and google decided that it wasn't time yet. it's been almost a month or more since I last updated the baby blog. So much has happened since then. I'm currently 31 1/2 weeks along. Friday, I will be 32 weeks and only have 6 weeks left. (5 weeks until I'm full term)...WEIRD!!! I've taken a few pictures...here you go...

28 weeks

29 weeks

30 weeks

I don't have the 31 week picture uploaded yet...but maybe in another month...Kidding!!

I love it when:

1. Molly kicks and twirls and punches!

2. When Molly has the hiccups...I know that sounds cruel but it's the most fascinating thing.


I do have one complaint...my back is killing me!! It's uncomfortable to stand, sit or lay down. I've sit on a heating pad...it's helping some. 8 1/2 weeks is going to be a long time.

More to come!

27.5 weeks!!

So I've stunk recently at updating. I have a few new things to tell:

1. I had my first shower a couple of weeks ago! I had so much fun! We made scrapbook pages! They turned out so well! Justin, Molly and I got a lot of great stuff! Molly got a lot of great clothes! She's never going to have to go naked...the poor girl! So many clothes!

2. I passed my gestational diabetes test last week!! YAH!!!! The stuff I had to drink wasn't too bad, it just made me sick and very tired.

3. On Friday, I will be at 28 weeks. Officially in the 3rd trimester!! 12 weeks left!! That's just nuts!! I'm excited and getting a little nervous!

Below is the last two weeks worth of pics...
26 weeks
27 weeks

I thought I'd also update the baby survey while I was on as well!

How far along?: 27.5 Weeks

How big is baby?:

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

You're in the home stretch! The third and final trimester starts this week. If you're like most women, you'll gain about 11 pounds this trimester. At this point, you'll likely visit your doctor or midwife every two weeks. Then, at 36 weeks, you'll switch to weekly visits. Depending on your risk factors, your practitioner may recommend repeating blood tests for HIV and syphilis now, as well as doing cultures for chlamydia and gonorrhea, to be certain of your status before delivery. Also, if your glucose screening test result was high and you haven't yet had follow-up testing, you'll soon be given the 3-hour glucose tolerance test. And if the blood work done at your first prenatal visit showed that you're Rh negative, you'll get an injection of Rh immunoglobulin to prevent your body from developing antibodies that could attack your baby's blood. (If your baby is Rh positive, you'll receive another shot of Rh immunoglobulin after you give birth.)

Around this time, some women feel an unpleasant "creepy-crawly" sensation in their lower legs and an irresistible urge to move them while trying to relax or sleep. If this sensation is at least temporarily relieved when you move, you may have what's known as restless legs syndrome (RLS). No one knows for sure what causes RLS, but it's relatively common among expectant mothers. Try stretching or massaging your legs, and cut down on caffeine, which can make the symptoms worse. Ask your caregiver if you should try iron supplements, which can sometimes relieve RLS.

Total weight gain?: Last week, at my appointment, I was weighing in at 165. That means I've gained 20 pounds!!

Maternity clothes?: Yes...about to have to go to all clothes. As expected, basketball season has become rather funny. I wear my jeans through practice and a t-shirt. Most of my t-shirts though, are not fitting anymore!

Stretch marks?: No... I'm lucky so far!

Sleep?: Still haven't bught the Snoogle, but don't think I'm going to until absolutley necessary. I have what equals two body pillows on either side of me.

Best moment this week?: Passing my GD test and winning our basketball game on Friday.

Movement?: Everyday. She's very active in the morning and at night. They are starting to sting a little bit. She's getting stronger!! I love being able to feel her!

Food cravings?: Fried pickles! I still haven't eaten any though!

Labor signs?: No!!!!!

Belly button in or out?: The bottom half is out!!

What I miss?: Playing basketball with the team. AND...my hips and groin area not hurting!

What I'm looking forward to?: Thanksgiving...next Thursday!

11.05.2009

Time for reflection and random thoughts!

First off...tomorrow I will be 26 weeks!! Just two more weeks of the 2nd trimester and on to the third. I've posted last week's picture. I suck at putting the pics in the blog on time. It's just a week late!! Back of me! They are technically the same picture, with different angles in the nursery. (Which is almost finished)

Secondly...things are going good. Molly is back to her 'ol self again and moving around in there. I'm such a worry wart. I forget that she gets tired too. This momma's been extra tired this week too! I know what she's going through. Casey (the 8th grade coach) is out of town due to a death in the family and I'm running practice alone. Stressful!! Tomorrow...Friday...we have practice at 6:00am!! BOOOOO!! Yesterday, I got so tired around noon, I pulled a George and took a 45 minutes nap under my desk at work. I've got a blanket to lay on and a pillow to cuddle with. Can't get any better...oh except the hard floor. But it will due! No nap today however....I'm feeling pretty good! We'll see around 3:00ish.
Complaint of the week: I'm getting kinda tired of these DOUBLE leg cramps!! Well worth it though! The other night I woke up and couldn't get it stretched back out! I limped around all day yesterday! I just need to stop stretching out in bed!
Randomness: This morning I was driving into wrok and Taylor Swift's new song "15" came on the radio. Could that girl written a more true song. See the song lyrics and link below if you don't believe me or don't know what I'm talking about.
"Fifteen" lyrics by Taylor Swift
"You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
Its the morning of your very first day
you say hi to your friends you aint seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybodys way
its your freshman year and youre gonna be here
for the next four years in this town
hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
you know I havent seen you around, before
Cause when youre fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
youre gonna believe them
and when youre fifteen
feeling like there nothing to figure out
well count to ten, take it in
this is life before who youre gonna be
fifteen
You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail
and soon enough youre best friends
laughing at the other girls who think theyre so cool
well be out of here as soon as we can
and then youre on your very first date and hes got a car
and youre feeling like flying
and youre momas waiting up and you think hes the one
and youre dancing round your room when the night end
when the night ends
Cause when youre fifteen and somebody tell you they love you
youre gonna believe them
when youre fifteen and your first kiss
makes your head spin round but
in your life youll do greater than dating the boy on the football team
but I didnt know it at fifteen
When all you wanted was to be wanted
wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now
Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday
but I realized some bigger dreams of mine
and Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
who changed his mind and we both cried
Cause when youre fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
youre gonna believe them
and when youre fifteen, dont forget to look before you fall
I've found that time can heal most anything
and you just might find who youre supposed to be
I didnt know who I was supposed to be at fifteen"
It's so funny because looking back now, putting stuff in a box, crying...it's amazing how all that doesn't matter. I found one of those boxes this weekend and my question is now..."What do I do with that stuff?" It's not important to me because my life is now my box. Justin and Molly are my life. The important stuff you can't put in a box. I told you it was random thought day!
Moment I'm looking forward to this coming week: My first baby shower is on Sunday at kelly B's parent's house. I'm super exciting about the "activity" we are doing. Everyone there is going to make a scrapbook page for Molly's scrapbook that I will hopefully get to after she's born. I'm excited!!
God Bless...more to come later!!

25 weeks!! Update on the pregnancy!

I thought I'd give you a little update...just to let you know what's going on with the actual pregnany! Here you go!!


How Big is the Baby at 25 Weeks Pregnant?
By pregnancy week 25 your baby is approximately 1.5 pounds and just under 13.7 inches long. From this point on however your baby's weight and length may vary somewhat. Every baby is different as you'll soon realize during your pregnancy week by week. Some babies will be born weighing 7 pounds and others 10.

Your Baby's Growth and Development
Your baby is continuing to mature during pregnancy week 25 and for the next several weeks. The structures that form the spine start to form around pregnancy at 25 weeks, and blood vessels in the lungs continue to develop this week. Other things that are shaping up during pregnancy at 25 weeks include our baby's nostrils, which may open up by the end of this week.
Your baby is starting to put on just a little meat, and will continue filling out as your pregnancy progresses.

Your Growth and Development
Your uterus is now about the size of a volleyball at 25 weeks pregnant!! (WHAT?) As your uterus continues to grow you'll notice it places some pressure on your back and pelvis. This can sometimes cause you to experience shooting pains either down your leg or in your lower back. For some women these pains get more and more severe during pregnancy. (No kidding!!?)

How far along?: 25 Weeks

Total weight gain?: At last weigh in, I was at 159. That puts me gaining 14 pounds so far. The nurse thought that was okay so I'm not worried. I'm trying to get more protein in my diet.

Maternity clothes?: Yes...I started buying medium size t-shirts...and a few I bought a couple of weeks ago are about to be too small!! AHHHHH! Basketball season will be real fun if I don't have any t-shirts to wear.

Stretch marks?: No... except the ones on my hips

Sleep?: I've figured out the proper way to snuggle with my body pillow. I was hoping I would get a "snoogle" for my birthday...but no such luck. My grandparents gave me some money though so that might be what I buy!

Best moment this week?: I know this sounds strange, but finally being able to get the flu shots! I've kinda been nervous around all my sick kids at school b/c I hadn't had one yet.

Movement?: Everyday. She's very active in the morning and at night. They are starting to sting a little bit. She's getting stronger!!

Food cravings?: Milk... I can't get enough of the stuff!!

Labor signs?: No!!!!!

Belly button in or out?: The left side is peeking it's little head out a little bit!

What I miss?: I finally had some sushi... (veggie roll - calm down!)... But I miss being able to get out on the court with my girls and play with them!! Now all I want to do is sit down! (which I usually do)

What I'm looking forward to?: My shower in a couple of weeks. Danielle and kelly are going to throw a great one!! I can't wait!
Hope all have a great weekend!!! God Bless!

10.29.2009

25 weeks...tomorrow! AND...a nursery update!

Tomorrow, Friday, October 30th, I will be at 25 weeks!! Only 15 weeks left!! Some days, this is flying by. Other days, it feels like I'm just dragging along. I haven't updated the blog in a while. Here I am last weekend at 24 weeks.
Justin and I have been working very hard this week on the nursery. Our furniture was delivered last Friday. It's so pretty!! The chest of drawer's top drawer was broken so we have to wait to have it exchanged in a few weeks. Forget it...I'm over it! I've still got some things to put up on the walls. And we've moved in the newly painted, red toy chest. those pictures to come later. My mom and Justin worked so hard on the darn tree on the wall!! It took 4 1/2 hours!!! I think it's looking good so far!!



Yesterday was my birthday!!! I turned 26!! I can't believe that I'm 26 and about to have a baby! CRAZINESS!! To celebrate the day of my birthday, I went a got both flu shots!! That was exciting! My mom brought me Tea Room for lunch (including some cheese cake) and Justin took me to Jimmy Johns for dinner. We had plans to go to Bijan's downtown but my stomach has really been acting up this week. I didn't want to go to a fancy, shmancy place to eat and end up throwing it up. SO.....we are going tomorrow night! I think Danielle and Kelly are taking me out tonight so we'll see if I feel like eating anything. Right now (11:15), it ain't so good!
I've had basketball try-outs the last couple of days (to celebrate the day of my birth)!! I made cuts yesterday. I kept 13. We're going to be okay! We'll see! We've got practice tomorrow morning at 5:45 AM!!! That will be a treat!
More pictures to come!! God bless!

10.22.2009

24 weeks tomorrow!!!

Tomorrow is my V-day!! Viability day to be more exact. Here's the belly pictures from last Saturday (23 weeks). Sorry It's taken me so long to upload it! Tomorrow, we are off of school (thanks goodness!) and Justin and I are going to spend the day together. We are going to eat breakfast at panera (yummmmmmmm...asiago cheese bagel!) and then Baby News is delivering the crib and other furniture at 12:30!!! I'm sure we will do some other stuff (like put the crib together in the afternoon) too. I would like to go to Target to look for a storage unit (like the one below) for the closet and a small round table. The storage unit will be for books and other clothes items. I got the idea online at The Bump. I love that website!!


Short post today guys!! More to come tomorrow!! Hopefully, we will get the tree decal in today or tomorrow and we can get the nursery fixed right up!!


Peace and God Bless!!

Nursery Decor Ideas

So I've gotten the basic decor for our nursery figured out!!! We are going to center the theme around the birds on the mobile. We've decided to paint the walls a pale blue...almost whiteish blue. It's called tropical mist. I'm going to order some decals that can be hung on the walls and I'm going to make a few things.

Here are the decals that I'm looking to order. I can't seem to find the tree or a tree like it. I want it to go by and over the crib. (like in the picture)


I've actually already ordered the decal below. The branch is dark brown and the birds are deep red.


I colors that I'm focusing on are aqua blue, deep red, dark brown, and a light brown (tan).

I'm going to make a few things as well. I think they will add a touch of love. :)

Here's what I'm going to attempt to make: Closet dividers, letters for her name, and a few paintings.

The letters are going to have scrapbook paper glued on them and then I'm going to put embellishments on them. (like chip board decals, rhinestones, buttons, ect. )

I've hand drawn the birds that I'm going to cut out of the same scrapbook paper that I'm going to use on the letters. It will all be uniform. All I will have to paint on the pictures is the background (which is going to be the blue color) and the branches (dark brown) and blossoms. (yellow, red and light brown)) The birds will be red, yellow, and light brown.
Hobby Lobby and Lowe's are going to get a few visits in the next few weeks.
I think Justin may paint this Saturday. We are also going to paint a toy chest and a small table (from WallyWorld). The toy chest is going to be deep red and the table is going to be dark brown.
I hope it all comes together and doesn't look stupid. Please pray for us and our little one!

10.09.2009

22 Weeks!!

So it's Friday and today I am 22 Weeks along in the pregnany!! I'm excited! I love Fridays. Here's what our little precious baby is up to:

How big is the baby this month:
Weeks 21-24 (Month 5): Papaya

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

How far along?: 22 Weeks

Total weight gain?: I really don't know...at last weigh in I had gained 10 pounds...I would guessimate that I've gained around 12 pounds so far.
Maternity clothes?: All of my pants still...I'm back to wearing pre-maternity shirts...just becasue I still can..but it won't be much longer until I can't.
Stretch marks?: I think I have one on each hip. But none other than that.
Sleep?: No...and it sucks!! I have no problem going to sleep. I just can't stay asleep.
Best moment this week?: I have two...we got to see our little one on Wednesday again!! SHe's doing good. AND...our bedding came in. Right now, the nursery looks like it just threw up baby bedding but I'm determined to document it all (take pictures).
Movement?: Most days...off and on. She's very active in the evenings. And last night, when mommy couldn't sleep at 4:00, she entertained me. It's still pretty dull but it's there.
Food cravings?: Last weekend it was chili...and it didn't settle too well...and bananas (which I know is a craving, b/c I don't like bananas)
Labor signs?: No...good thing!
Belly button in or out?: it's pretty flat now. It won't be long before I have an outie!
What I miss?: still sushi from Haruno...and sleep
What I'm looking forward to?: Tomorrow we are going to register at Baby News, Target and maybe Babies R' Us. I'm super excited. I'm also looking forward to picking out a name for our daughter! I'm pretty sure we've got one but it's just down to deciding it's "the one".
Danielle and Kelly B. are planning my first shower. It's going to be on November 15th, sometime in the afternoon. It's mainly for my extended family, and Ozark friends. If you are interested in coming, let me know and I will put your name on the list. I need your addresses as well.
Tomorrow, Justin and I will take a belly picture...i'll post it sometime...Kisses-
Sara

Wednesday - Hump Day

Today is Wednesday. I have a couple things on my mind.

First... I will be 22 weeks on Friday. I've not been very good at keeping up with the pictures of the belly progress... so here you go...

20 weeks

21 weeks

I have my 2nd ultrasound today at 3:30. During the first one, they could not see her stomach (b/c she was empty) so they are going to look again. I'm excited that we get to see her again!!

Baby News called me yesterday and told me that her bedding came in!! I'm so excited. We are going to pick it up just so we will have some sort of idea about what color to paint the nursery. I'm thinking a pale yellow. What do you think? Kelly and Jeremy let us "borrow" the toy chest AND have given us permission to paint it. I'm thinking I'm going to paint it red. It will bring a good **pop** of color into the room.


I've decided that I am going to make her name (which we still don't know). I think I'm going to try and find some scrapbook paper with birds on it and modge podge it to the front of the letters. It might be a little busy so I'm going to put them on the opposite wall from the crib. I'm
also going to try and find some wall murals with birds. I got the ideas for the birds from the mobile.

Second: I made a website for my classes today! I'm super proud of myself. This way, absent students can go online and see what they missed. It was fairly easy.

Third: I'm frustrated with work! I'm frustrated with people I work with. Two quetions: 1. What do some people have to be soooooooo argumentative? AND 2. Why can't people just shut up and do the job your were hired to do...without complaining? Maybe some people just get their rocks off by being a pain in my ass!!!

Well...I'm off! Wish Justin and I luck. Keep our little family in your prayers!!

10.01.2009

Happy October!!!

I can't believe it's the first day of October!! 2009 has gone by so fast!! But in my mind, of courtse, it can't go by fast enough. I will be 21 weeks tomorrow!! I thank God everyday for giving my the opportunity to be a mother and for a (so far) healthy and somwhat easy pregnancy.

First off, I want to ask everyone for thughts and prayers for the Floyd family. Monday, Sept. 28th, Justin's cousin's wife, Joni (cousin is Gavin) had their baby at 28 weeks. Greyden John Floyd was born at 3 lbs and 16 inches long. He is healthy. He was taken off the ventilator on Tuesday and is currently breathing on his own. He will be in the NICU for the next 2 months and will continue to develop his little body. He and his mommy and daddy need all the prayers you can give.

I will update again tomorrow. Maybe some pictures!!

9.27.2009

Meet Maverick!!

Justin and I got a new car on Saturday. We drove to Bentonville, Ar to shop at the Honda dealership. We bought a 2010 Honda Pilot. It's atomic blue!!! I've decided to name it Maverick...after my favorite pilot...get it? Huh? Good huh?

It has a DVD player!! I've got so many buttons to learn how to use. The above picture is of my dash.
I love it!! It drives so well that I can't tell that it's 3X the size of Lily!
It was a good weekend...besides the car. We got to visit with Ross, Leah and Sam. We also got to meet Sam's new girlfriend...Rachel. She's cute and super nice. Sister approves.
On the baby front: Justin and I still haven't decided on a name yet. Booooo!

9.24.2009

We ordered our crib and bedding!!!

It's been a good week for the Floyd's. We finally ordered our crib and our daughter's bedding. I'm super excited about it and I can't wait until it comes in!! Here you go...It's called Cocalo Deliah

Plus we got the mobile, the lamp (not pictured) and the hamper (also not pictured)

Here's the website for so you can see all the other accessories!

http://www.cocalo.com/item.asp?id=534&brand=6&g=1&coll=&cat=1


We also ordered the crib, chest of drawers and dresser (that we can use as a changing table)...
We decided against the hutch but might go back and get it...i don't know.

Justin and I are super lucky. The in-laws bought our crib and my parents bought our bedding and accessories!! We know we are blessed. We don't take it for granted and we thank God everyday for great examples of parents!! Thank you!

Tomorrow I will be 20 weeks!! YAH!!! I can't believe that I'm half way through my pregnancy! It's cliche, but it seems like only yesterday I found out I was preggo. In 20 weeks or less, we will get to meet our darling and precious daughter. Nuts!!!

My friends are great too!! Danielle and Kelly B are going to throw me a shower sometime in the fall and Kelly S. (my SIL) and Nicole are going to throw me one in January. This girl is going to have more clothes that she knows what to do with. Kelly has already mentioned that Hannah and Claire have some clothes they never wore or wore only once! plus, my mom loves going shopping. Yesterday, she gave me 6 outfits. I love going in that room. I know it's empty but UI can't help but think about what it's going to be.

Tuesday, Justin and I went to see Dr. Graves for my 19 1/2 week appt. It went well. The baby's heartrate was 145. Good and steady. it's pretty much stayed around 145-150 the entire time. I weighed 154...which means I've gained 9 pounds since the beginning. That doesn't seem like very much. I promise I eat!!


Justin and I are still having trouble coming up with a name for our daughter. Here's some possibilites. Please, feel free to give opinions.

Lucy Mae

Abigail Rae

Abigail Marie

Molly Erin

Molly Grace

Abigail Lucy

Gail is MIL's middle name and Raye is my mom's middle name. So far, Abigail Rae is at the top of the list...BUT...my mom hates it!! She doesn't like Rae...don't ask me why though! So...our daughter remains baby girl Floyd...or Flina :)

Time to complain: I am sooooo tired. This weather is killing me. this week is going by so slow!! It's seems like I've had something every morning this week and something every afternoon. For example: I had an intervention team meeting at 7:00 this morning. I'm new to the committee and I believe in the cause so in the end my sleep can suffer.

On a happier note: (and then I will finish...so much to tell this week) Justin and I are going to buy a new car for ME!!! We're looking at the Honda Pilot.



I think we're going to Fayetville to see Sam and Ross and Leah...and to Landers. You know, when I lived in Arkansas I alsways felt left out b/c I didn't have a car from Lander's...yah for new cars!!

Pray for us!!

9.18.2009

Best moment this week?: Justin and I cleaned out the nusery room last weekend. The room is ready to recieve. We are going shopping tomorrow. Hopefully we are going to find a crib and some bedding.

9.09.2009

We are on Team...

PINK!!!

We found out yesterday that Justin and I are going to have a precious, little, baby girl in Feburary. It was a little overwhelming but I can honestly say that I already love her!

I went to sleep last night thinking about all the "fun" times there will be in 15ish years. Teen girls are so much fun! I'm reasy for a little Sara.

The neices, Hannah and Claire, were "excited". We went to eat at Texas Roadhouse.

I love my daughter!! I'll upload photos later.

9.04.2009

Baby Nursery Ideas

I am 17 Weeks today!!! Yahoo! Justin and I find out on Tuesday (hopefully) what we are going to have. I keep saying if the baby is anything like its dad, the shyness might keep us from knowing. If the baby is anything like me, it will show it's ass!!

We went to Babies r' us last night to look at cribs. We didn't really see anything we liked. We decided to buy from Baby News. We haven't been over there yet but there are a few we've seen online that we love!!

Nothing has really popped out at me yet though! I kinda think everything is going to end up on the gender.

I have also posted a couple options for bedding and themes.

For a girl's room:

For a boys' room: ( I have more ideas for a boy's room)

1. Razorback room
2. Dr. Suess
3. Airplanes


I'm loving the Dr. Suess room!!!
Justin and I want to keep the room's paint neutral so one day we might be able to sell the house. I'm thinking grey or a taupe of some color!! I think for either gender those colors would work!
I have this feel it's a girl. Call it momma's intuition or whatever. Girls' names are stumping me and a girl's room seems more overwhelming. I can't get down with the pink thing. I love red so maybe we'll stick with it!
Girls' names:
1. Lucy Mae (our mothers' maiden names)
2. Samantha Mae
3. Rosa Mae
Boys' names:
1. Steven Lucas (but call him Lucas)
2. William Steven (both our dads' name is Steven)
3. Lucas Austin
Any thoughts? Wish us luck!!
I will try and post a 16 week and 17 week pic later tonight.
Love you baby Floyd!!
