Pregnancy Stats!

Well we're in the FINAL COUNTDOWN!!! Less than 8 weeks to go, I can't believe it!!

Our second trimester was great! The yucky feelings were definitely gone and energy was up. Hudson grew a lot!

We are now in our third and FINAL trimester. I'm starting to get a little more tired at the end of the day. My feet get sore but not too bad. I'm getting pretty round! A lot of people say that it looks like I have a basketball under my shirt:) Maybe Hudson will be athletic like his Daddy!! I've gained 25 pounds so far! Sounds like so much when I say that out loud, but the Dr. says I'm right on track with the weight gain. It's definitely not the most fun moment when it's time to weigh in at the Dr.'s office, but Hudson is growing good and that is the most important.

At our last appointment Hudson was measuring 1 week bigger. I was 32 weeks and my tummy was measuring 33'll see if he stays on track or if he continues to grow EXTRA and become GIANT like Daddy.

We had our first class this week it was a breast feeding class. We learned a lot! So hopefully my boobies cooperate and all goes well:) My last day of work is next Friday, I can't believe I only have 5 days left! I'm going to miss my class so much, but it will be really awesome to clean and get Hudson's room all decorated and of course RELAX a little before he arrives.

Hudson's movements are becoming much stronger and we can feel little body parts poking out of my tummy:) We still haven't quite figured out what parts we're feeling but I think I felt an elbow today:) It's such an amazing feeling. Duncan read Hudson a story yesterday and he loved it! Every time he hears Daddy's voice he moves around, he loves his Daddy already!!

Well, just a little update!

Until next time...We love you Hudson James!

It's been a while!

We Love Hudson!

Our Bump Month by Month...More like a Basketball now!

Well, it's been a little while since my last blog. The belly keeps growing, I love it! We've had a crazy busy couple of weeks, but it has been so much fun.Easter Sunday!

We spent Easter with my family and all of the little ones, they are getting so big. The boys, Colt and Luke will be A YEAR on May 8th, I can't believe how fast time flies. In no time our little Hudson will be here and we'll be making memories as a little family.

Dawsyn, Samantha, Christopher, Gabriela and Isabella

The Boys! Luke & Colt

We are now 31 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) so we have 9 weeks to go! At our last appointment he was measuring 1/2 a week bigger so we'll see what he is measuring this week. We are now going to the Dr. every 2 weeks. Our Dr. seems to think he's in the "normal" range so far, so she says there is nothing to worry about yet :) We are still trying to be prepared for a GIANT baby like Daddy...just in case.

I've been feeling great, a little tired at the end of the day, but overall GREAT! I'm still sleeping through the night with occasional potty breaks, but I don't have to get up every night yet.:) Hudson is moving A LOT MORE lately. I can feel little body parts rolling around, mostly on my right side. We love feeling him move and trying to guess what body part we're feeling.

Hudson was in his first of 2 weddings this last weekend! Julie my beautiful cousin got married on 4/10/10, we'll be in one more wedding on 5/8/10 for Bree & Ryan! I'll be nice and ROUND for that one:)

At Julie's Wedding!

31 weeks and growing....I truly love being pregnant and can't wait to see our Hudson's sweet face! I have my baby showers coming up very soon, I'm so excited to get his nursery all set up and prepare for our little guy. My last day of work will be April 30th, I'm a little sad to leave my kiddos...but I think I'll definitely be ready to take a break, have a little relaxation and a lot of nesting before Hudson comes!!

'til next time....
