Rockin' the Bump/28 weeks

It was a little over a year ago that I linked up with Things I Can't Say for her 1st "Rockin' the Bump" link up and little did I know, a year later, I'd be rockin' a current bump! :) So, without further ado, my bump and my weekly update! :)



How far along: 28 weeks


Symptoms: nothing new except my leg cramps seem to be a tad worst
Weight gain/loss: Per usual, it's just a "guess" (based off of my home scale) in between doctors appointments, but I do believe that I'm a total of 13 lbs (which is up 1 lb from my last appt on 6/12/13)
Gender: Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!

Maternity clothes? yes!

Sleep: I have come to terms with the fact that I won't be sleeping again for a VERY long time, seriously! ;) Honestly, I haven't slept a full night since I found out I was prego (not one.single.night) in fact, I've pretty much gotten up 2-3 times a night every.single.night so it is what it is! :)
Food cravings/aversions: Pre-prego I always preferred ground turkey over ground beef, since being pregnant, I'm actually sort of sickened by ground turkey (I'll eat it in something ie spaghetti sauce) but I don't just want a ground turkey burger (which is SO unlike me!)
Movement? a ton!

What I miss? nothing really

Best moment(s) this week: entering my 3rd trimester yesterday, not hearing anything from my doctor about my 3 hour glucose test, so no news is good news (WOOOO HOOOO!!!! :), celebrating Manny's 33rd birthday tomorrow and, God willing, settling on our very first house on Thursday! :)
What I'm looking forward to: hitting my 3rd trimester

Next appointment: my next OB appt is 7/10/13
And for good measure my 28 week bump (and the cutest photo bomber EVER! ;)


And for good measure my 27 week bump in case you missed it last week! :)

27 weeks


Here we are, it's Monday again and time for another weekly update! At least I'm good about doing these updates since my blog has TOTALLY taken the backseat lately...lots going on...growing a baby, Manuel just finished 1st grade on Friday, AND we're in the process of buying our first house (WOO HOOO!!!! :) so at least I have an excuse!
How far along: 27 weeks

Symptoms: nothing new...itchy skin, not sleeping well, peeing often (especially in the middle of the night), random backaches
Weight gain/loss: At my appointment last Wednesday I was up 2 lbs from last months appointment, for a total of 12 lbs total. Not too shabby! :)
Gender: Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!

Maternity clothes? yes!

Sleep: definitely could be MUCH better! ;)
Food cravings/aversions: sushi...I wish I could have a California roll and a Pearl River roll right this second!!! :)

Movement? a ton!
What I miss? nothing really
Best moment(s) this week: celebrating Fathers Day with Manny...he is, hands down, one of the most amazing fathers on the planet! :) Oh, and I got to see Baby #3 at my appointment last Wednesday. My friend Kelli squeezed me in for a few pics. HOWEVER, Baby #3 was NOT cooperating for a 3D pic...it's just not meant to be! ;)
What I'm looking forward to: hitting my 3rd trimester

Next appointment: my next OB appt is 7/10/13, HOWEVER, I have more lab work to get done tomorrow morning at 8am...I just found out this morning that I failed my 1 hour glucose test, so tomorrow is the 3 hour one! :( I never had any issues at all with Manuel or Mia's glucose tests so this is all new to me. I'm not worried, I know it's all in God's hands! :)

And for good measure my 27 week bump


And yes, I swear I've only gained 12 lbs, although my bump may say otherwise! ;) (and my hand positioning is super weird too! Weekly bump pic fail! ;(

26 weeks

Happy Monday friends! I just realized that I never posted our vacay pics :( Hopefull soon! :) But on to my weekly update.

How far along: 26 weeks


Symptoms: continued itchy skin, lack of sleep and a broken out face, but ALL WORTH IT! :) Oh, and I had one of my first random pregnancy hormones outbursts yesterday...Manny and Manuel were at the pool. Mia and I were laying down upstairs, she was sleeping. I looked at her and just started crying thinking about how much I DON'T want our relationship to change once the baby comes. Mia and I are SO SO SO close (and Manny and Manuel are SO SO SO close) and I don't want anything to change that! I know this baby is such a welcomed blessing and Mia is going to be an awesome big sister (and Manuel will be an awesome big brother), however, I still want Mia to be my baby girl, no matter what, if Baby #3 is another little girl. I know that might sound crazy (that's why their called crazy prego hormones! ;) and my heart will just get bigger, but thinking this, and looking at her sleeping I just started to cry! :)

Weight gain/loss: I'll find out "officially" on Wednesday at my monthly appt but I'm pretty sure I'm up a total of 13 lbs total, up 3 lbs from my appt last month.

Gender: Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!

Maternity clothes? yes!

Sleep: I was up FOUR times last night to pee. I haven't had a full nights sleep since before I found out I was prego, so I'm just saying sleep isn't going to happen for several more years! ;)

Food cravings/aversions: sushi, fruit and french fries (not together! ;))

Movement? A LOT! His/her movements are getting much more noticeable from the outside now

What I miss? laying on my stomach

Best moment(s) this week: lots of family time this past weekend (and lots of packing, not fun! ;(

What I'm looking forward to: hitting my 3rd trimester

Next appointment: Wednesday, June 12th

And for good measure my 26 week bump
Nothing says classy like a toilet in the picture! ;)

Wordless Wednesday (on a Tuesday, and I'm okay with it! ;)

Our 8th annual Gomez Family Old Time Photo! :)
*The last time we were Cowboys I was prego with Mia! :) Needless to say I've never been this far along in a pregnancy during our Old Time Photo, so they don't have a maternity option! ;) We alternate each year. We are moving soon and as I take down the pictures to pack them, I think I'm going to share them on here, through the years. It's really neat to see how much we change each year! :)

25 weeks

Just got back from a little getaway with my 3 (well 4 ;) favorite people. We went to Ocean City for the weekend as our "vacation" for the summer...with the baby coming, moving at the end of the month, etc. life is just too busy to take a full weeks vacation, so we crammed as much as we could into the weekend and had a blast! Yesterday was also my 32nd birthday so that was fun way to celebrate! :) I have a TON of pics to share, but for now, my weekly prego post...

How far along: 25 weeks


Symptoms: REALLY itchy skin but all in all, no complaints :)
Weight gain/loss: after having gained no weight since my last appointment (May 15th-I was holding steady at 8-9 lbs) HOWEVER after a weekend of eating "beach food" I'm scared to get on the scale. I'm going to guess I'm up a total of 10-11 lbs (HOPEFULLY, at the most! ;)

Gender: Surprise baby!!! :) We found out with both Manuel and Mia, and since this will be our last child (I can't imagine a 4th c-section) we figured this one should be a surprise!

Maternity clothes? yes!

Sleep: seemed to be getting better and than Saturday I got SO sunburnt on my legs :( and have been in SO much pain those my sleep is suffering. I'm hopeful that once it starts to heal, I'll be back to only getting up once or twice. We shall see :)
Food cravings/aversions: seafood! (especially after being around so many seafood restaurants at the beach!) I could eat seafood all day, everyday! (of course I wouldn't because of the mercury, but I would if I could! :)

Movement? A LOT! His/her movements are getting much more noticeable from the outside now
What I miss?  a solid nights sleep

Best moment(s) this week: getting to spend some quality time with my hubby and kiddos at the beach
What I'm looking forward to: moving (staying local but there are some fun "potentials" on the horizon that I plan on sharing once everything is signed, sealed and delivered! ;)
Next appointment: June 12th...and my glucose test! Yippy! ;)

And for good measure my 25 week bump
