Pre-term labor is no joke! Learning to stay hydrated! 5 more weeks to go!
Fetal Development: Brain development continues as pattern and voice recognition improve this week. Newborns can be soothed by familiar voices and songs at birth recognized in-utero from this gestational week. Bone marrow and immune systems are fully functional and baby could survive outside the ...

Time is flying by! The USMC Airshow was a blast this past weekend! We enjoyed it as a family of 3. <-- wow that is weird to say. 6 weeks left until we meet the little rascal!
Fetal Development: Baby's internal time clock for sleep/wake cycles are developing as light perception increases. Baby's eyes will actually stay open while it is awake now. Baby's bones are starting to harden their matrix. Baby is also continuing to pack on fat, it's skin is less transparent now ...

Fetal Development: Baby is starting to show personality according to my prego app(?not sure how though)? Baby is laying down more fat deposits and has surges of energy because of it. Baby hiccups are possible at this point as the diaphragm is learning to work more regularly with strong active ...

Family visiting adventures to the beach and painting the baby's room!
My Momma and Aunt arrived Tuesday evening while I was at work. I tried to have little love notes and things ready for their arrival while I was still working! You know, simple little things like chocolates on their pillows, cheese & crackers waiting, and their beverage of choice available if ...

That baby bump is on a growth spurt! Lots happening this week! And I need help picking out colors for a wood pallet craft project in the nursery!
Fetal Development: Lungs are growing the much needed air sacs to provide oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange. Surfactant is also starting to develop, which will allow the baby to breath easy (lungs will inflate/deflate easily). Technically the baby could hypothetically survive outside my uterus if ...

Almost 6months down! Also had a job interview today!! YAY!
Fetal Development: Baby can detect movement, like my kitchen dancing while cooking dinner and/or my crazy workout video movements! Also this week, baby's lungs are developing blood vessels to prepare for independent oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange once outside my uterus.

Sometimes a bad day can end in the most perfect way!
Trying to sing along to happy songs on the radio. "Don't bring work home... life is too short" I kept reminding myself. And still when I parked the car and tried to get out of the seat... the sharp pains and achey back reminded me why I was so uncomfortable... the grumpiness came rushing back.

Enjoyed Easter weekend together! Now only 7 weeks left! And I finally signed contracts for a new position as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner this week!!! YippE!
Fetal Development: Baby is working on turning head down... apparently. But that is definitely not happening over here yet. This fetus is a tumbling machine. I feel kicks way down there, kicks on the side, and kicks out front. But I NEVER feel kicks up toward my ribs suggesting the baby would be ...

Baby Shower recap! 
Our family and friends are the best! We could not fly home to Arizona for a real baby shower, so my mother and aunt flew out to us and everyone shipped their generous gifts to our sweet baby! We cannot tell you how incredibly loved and blessed we felt! For me, it was an incredibly emotional ...

Total weight gain/loss: 12ish pounds? I am trying so hard to gain weight! The scale just isn't moving! My love handles are sure getting bigger though! My family is here visiting this week so I am sure all the meal outings will help the scale! ;). Maternity Clothes? Love my maternity Old Navy and ...

I actually love studying for my board exams! I just love all this crap! I cannot believe grad school is over?!? What a crazy roller-coaster ride! 
It was incredibly nerve racking to wear a white coat around.. In fact, my very first day to clinical rotation with one of my favorite doctors... I literally had to walk back to my car to get my coat. I refused to wear it. And then I remembered, it was required. I felt like I didn't deserve it.
