Quoting Mama to Lexi & Madie:" You are TOO FREAKING CUTE!!! And wth no stretch marks???!!!!??? you suck! lol I have just now gotten some on the front of my belly no the less but oh well.. :("


Thank you! you are sweet. I do have stretchmarks. I got them with my first daughter all across my underbelly, but with time, working out, and proper diet my skin firmed up a lot and you could barely see them. I didnt get more with my second daughter, but i suspect its only a matter of time with my son because i have already put on nearly 30lbs. I have 7 weeks till i deliver via csection and i expect to gain at least another 10lbs lol. TERRRIBLE but oh well. So if i get more i wont be shocked, ill be disappointed but they will fade with time.

Also im sorry about your glucose. I was sure i would faill mine because i had HG with my last two and my last daughter i had GD as well even tho i couldnt eat anything, and with this little guy im ALWAYS eating and always hungry and i eat NOTHING but HORRIBLE food lol. I crave crap all day/ But perhaps he will be like his dad and process sugar super fast so for whatever reason my blood sugars were actually low with my glucose test. Believe it or not! lol.

I'm guessing I don't have to do this glucose test because I'm already a diabetic? Is this to test for gestational diabetes? I've never had to take one, but I always hear women complaining about them lol.

I've yet to take my glucose test so i'm kinda scared. Lol.. I don't know what i'd do if you added that to the mix on top of everything else going on. As far as the ultrasound goes, I didn't eat two hours before but I did eat enough to feel full hours before and I wasn't really happy with what I ate. I don't know why but unless i'm eating something that I consider yummy or like right now after I just ate taco bell (yuck, I know) she's kicking up a storm. I think when I come back in i'm gonna eat something and have some sweets prior. The place opens late, till 9 p.m. so I'm gonna go for a late appointment since she seems to be more active at night. Let's hope it works out. I'm so anxious to see that little face..



Bring on the pictures, sisters! Keep 'em coming! They all look great. Baby ultrasound and mama tums.

Normally Taco Bell is one of the last fast food places I'd choose to eat from, but here lately it's the only fast food I want lol. I'll destroy a crunchwrap supreme like nobody's business. Greasy burgers and friend just don't sound good to me. I MIGHT eat some Chic-Fil-A if I'm in the mood, but that's it (my last pregnancy I ate Chic-Fil-A at least four times a week lmao).
But that's good they're open late.. at least you know you have time! :)

i just cannot believe how lethargic i am all of a sudden



i'm feeling really badly about how little i've worked out this pregnancy.
i'm up over 30 pounds but people think i'm only 5 months pregnant when they look at me.. LOL. i guess because i am tall and started out super skinny.
but the cellulite on my hips! i never had that with DD#1 because i did pilates 3x a week and walked miles.



i literally may have worked out 10 times since i've been pregnant. BLAHHH.
thanks for listening to me b***h

Pshhh!! At least you did some kinda workout. I think the Previa was just something that was bestowed upon me so that I have an excuse to be my lazy ass self. It's almost like God was like "UGH. She's not going to do anything to help herself so I might as well just give her a cop out excuse as to why she's a heffer."



If it wasn't for me resting my hand on my belly people continue to think i'm overweight and not pregnant. It makes me feel horrible. Everytime I look in the mirror at my face it brings me back to the days I had my wisdom teeth removed and my cheeks blew up like a hoarding chipmunk.



It doesn't help that I was already a fat-mass to begin with. I'm tall too, 5'8" so that's the only thing that kinda helps me to not look as huge, but i'm still huge and have gotten only humongous-er. Haha.. Man.. I hope my baby turns out to be more like her father and be skinny. He never gains any weight and he eats more than me. BOO!

Beautiful belly pics! Aww u won't post baby's 4d pic?! Well hope baby cooperates next time. I kinda feel oddballish. I don't want another u/s or to see his face. He moves nonstop n I mean huge nonstop movements that I don't feel any want to see his face. I know he's fine I guess. Idk kinda weird. My 30wk appt is tomorrow yay more blood drawn.. Blah. Hubby and I are now betting he'll show sometime in may. It honestly feels like the dates were off and he's running outta room in there. Never felt like this w the girls. Hoping I'm wrong n he's just that energetic. He kept me up all night n hasn't really stopped moving today either. So.... Nobody has claimed the pit/lab mix we took in. We named her Katie, Kinsley crossed my mind for a split second lol love that name!! She's filling out you can hardly see her bones now. Took her to the vet no chip so we're keeping her. Ill share pics later. Lulu's babies opened their eyes today and I have 2 of Duchess' babies spoken for. Anyone else loving the snow?!? Girls start pre-k April 5th. Hope you lovely glowing fellow preggo's have a great night!! Time for ice cream :)

Don't feel bad.. I exercised almost every day with my last pregnancy and I snapped right back to my pre-baby body.. I really don't see that happening this time, it's like no matter how many times I tell myself, "You're gonna get fat! You're're gonna hate the way you look after this baby comes!" I just can't motivate myself to exercise. I've been trying to get up extra early in the mornings to exercise but I just end up procrastinating lol. I was doing good for like a week.. then I decided I'd rather sleep lmao. Ugh. I know I'm going to regret it.

had my 30wk appt today. Hubby ratted me out too. Brat. Midwife told me to slow down :( bc of the contractions I've been having esp after a nice cleaning marathon. I'm now 146 lbs, his hb was 150s-140s. The belly is measuring 30 exactly so he's right on track with that. She'll start checking me at 35-36 wks. So she said no more than 5 contractions in an hour. If so then I am to soak in a warm bath, put my hands on my belly (?) and take 2 extra strength tylenol, count them after 30 mins of soaking and if I get 5 more in an hour again, to call her and prepare to come in. No bloodwork today :) scheduled that for my next appt in 2wks. I'll try to post pics tonight. I've been super slacking in that.
