Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 25

I feel like time is flying! 
I don’t feel like I should be this far along already but I am not going to complain! 

How far along? 25 weeks
Total weight gain: 13 pounds
Maternity clothes?
I’ve been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones… just the ones from Miss P. 😛
Sleep: Still sleeping fabulously which is awesome and a bit shocking!

Best moment this week: We survived our 2 day drive to TN with Miss P on her first long car ride!

Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin’ hours!

Movement: I
definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back
and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect
to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn’t surprising because I didn’t crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still

when I get really congested and can’t breathe it makes me sick. Other
than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): In but slowly getting shallower

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion!

BLAH! Has a little swelling in my ankles from sitting in the car so long for 2 days and slight round ligament pain as well.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I’ve been pretty happy this week.

Looking forward to: Seeing our family and friends while in TN.

Slippin’ on Some Huggies Diapers on My Active Mover + $25 Target Gift Card Giveaway

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #HuggiesSlipOn #pmedia https://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO
 Do you have a VERY active toddler in your house? 
Does that toddler cry when you it comes time for a diaper change? 
Does your toddler turn into an angry alligator trying to pull a death roll during diaper changes? 
Have you found your toddler in a not so pleasant, stinky, and GROSS situation?
If you answered yes to any or ALL of these questions above, then I have something for you! 
Let Huggies Slip-on Diapers come to the rescue!! 
I definitely have a very active 14 mth old that is always on the move who doesn’t always enjoy stopping for a diaper changing break. 
Here is one of our “fun” diaper changes. 
Awesome isn’t it?! 
NOT really! 

I was very excited when I got the opportunity to check out the Slip-On Diapers because I have been eyeing them for some time now. 
Off to Target we went and used this coupon for $2 off a pack of Huggies Slip-ons Diapers to try on Miss P.
And I think Miss P was ready to try them out as well because she carried the pack of them around the house before we tried them.
 These Huggies Slip-On Diapers have stretchy sides.
They also have that trusted leak protection Huggies is known for. 
Plus, they are super easy to put on and take off.
 You can have your baby step into them if they have good balance or slip their feet in while laying down and then stand them up to pull them up quickly to let your baby go off and play again. 
The Huggies Slip-On Diapers fit Miss P really well, which is good since she is constantly laying, 
standing,
Squating,
 Bending over, 
or walking! 
I think she likes them!! 🙂 
And now here is your chance to win a $25 Target Gift Card so you can go buy some Huggies for your little mover (although you don’t have to use the money on diapers)
 Don’t forget to take your $2 off Coupon when purchasing your Diapers!!
GOOD LUCK!!!

Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 24

Rolling through week 24 and I like the thought of only having 15 weeks left.
I have felt great this whole pregnancy body wise, but I am definitely bigger than I was with Miss P at this time and I am a little nervous how things will progress toward the end. We’ll see!! 
 

How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain: 13 pounds
Maternity clothes?
I’ve been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones… just the ones from Miss P. 😛
Sleep: I am SHOCKED at how well I am sleeping! With Miss P, I struggled many nights. I still wake up about the same time having to go to the bathroom around 4 or 5 but I can normally fall right back to sleep.

Best moment this week: Had my 24 week appt. where I got to hear the heartbeat again. Always great to hear that noise! And everything is going great and I’m measuring right on track.

Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin’ hours!

Movement: I definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn’t surprising because I didn’t crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still

when I get really congested and can’t breathe it makes me sick. Other
than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): In but slowly getting shallower

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion!

BLAH! And this is TOTALLY
weird and I keep forgetting to mention it but the tip of my second toe
on my left foot itches all the time. So annoying! lol
Happy or Moody most of the time: I’ve been pretty happy this week.

Looking forward to: We are heading to TN for a while so it will be fun to see our family and friends that we haven’t seen in so long. I am NOT looking forward to the drive and the crazy running around we will be doing though. I think we all will be worn out by the end.
