Baby update

We have had lots going on with Mae starting school, daddy busy working, bible study, play dates, out of town visitors (my mom and later Ryan's mom), trying out Sunday School classes, a little redecorating around the house (as always), and to top it off, the stomach bug hit us all.We are now on the mend and things are looking up! Praise Jesus!

Mae is growing like a week and we are loving every second of watching her change and mold into a little girl. She is going to be the best big sister. Speaking of sister:

Maggie is growing lots! She is measuring around 11 inches and is the size of a spaghetti squash. She is just shy of a pound by now I think. (I get emails, but to be honest, this time around I give a quick glance and move on, I have a 1 year old to chase around)

I am horrible at baby bump pictures, so this all you get, first is 4 weeks, 2nd is 22 weeks:

I went to my 22 week check up yesterday. I did not gain any weight this past month, due to the dreaded stomach bug, but doctor said it is fine and I my belly is measuring right on track. Total I have gained 9 lbs. I have no clue how much I gained with Mae at this point...I should have kept up with that better...I am friends with my doctor and her nurse from Auburn on fb so might get the guts to see if they can email me my stats, ha! We shall see.

I have felt lots of movement lately and Ryan has felt Maggie as well. (sometimes he exaggerates saying he feels her, and it cracks me up, because I know she didnt move at that moment...I think its the anticipation he has!) Maggie moves the most when I am laying down, which is not very often. This was the same way with Mae. I could only really feel her when I would take a breather and actually concentrate on feeling anything. Of course as it got later, I felt her more and more throughout the day.

I am working out and loving having the gym to have some me time. I didn't work out at all with Mae, so proud of still hanging in there this go around. I am still smaller than when I first found out I was pregnant with Mae, but I know I will be passing that soon! People in the workout classes are finally starting to realize I am pregnant instead of just getting fat! yay!

Maggie's nursery is ready. That is the good part of having another girl. Her clothes are washed and hanging up and I even saved a few things of Mae's that were brand new that I kept waiting for the perfect moment for her to wear them and then never did, so Maggie has a few cute outfits that are not hand-me-downs.

Mae is still in the crib but her big girl room is ready when I feel like the time is right! We shall see! No earlier than December that is for sure!

I went ahead and ordered another monitor camera and a sound machine. Other than diapers and a double jogging stroller, we are good to go! My sweet Charlotte friends are throwing a much needed diaper shower since I will have 2 in diapers at one time! Praise the Lord! and SUPER sweet of them!

So things around here are wonderful! Ryan is currently out of town and I am thankful for Mae's school days and bible study to keep me hanging in there! The days are long when he is gone! Looking forward to a girls trip with my Huntsville friends on Thursday for a long weekend in Charleston, SC. Then the next week we head to Auburn for the LSU game! So excited to see friends, it has been too long! War eagle!
