2 | names
Now, back to this baby on board.
One of the most troubling things I have been going through is…
not having a name.
You guys! Why is it so hard this time around?
I like the idea of sticking with the "B" names, but I am not loving anything.
We have a list, and they are fine… but I really want to like my kids name, you know?
I had already nailed down first and middle names for my older boys at this point in the pregnancy, so I am a little nervous this babe won't have a name.
Beckam wants to call him "Baby" and Brody is still sticking strong with "Blade".

3 | stats
Shall we go over some baby stats?

how far along | 33 weeks!

size of baby | this week the baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17 inch mark… according to my hand little app.
I'd like to think that he is 6 pounds easy though. It makes me feel better about the weight that I have gained that isn't at all related to baby. Like my fat face.

gender | BOY numero tres! You can see more HERE and HERE.

craving | other than wanting to shove all of the garbage food I see into my mouth, I don't have any cravings. I have got to get my crap together though!
I think that I am going to attempt a "no refined sugar" plan for the rest of the year.
I can totally do it, right?
Well… maybe I'll start Sunday because I just bought a pumpkin cheesecake from Costco for a potluck on Saturday, and I am certainly going to have a piece.

sleeping | oh sleep… how I miss sleeping on my stomach… or even my back for that matter.
I am constantly turning from side to side during the night because the arm I'm laying on goes numb.
And then, sometimes, as I am attempting to roll over {not easy btw} I get these SUPER intense round ligament pains. 
I usually end up on the ground, on all fours, trying to stretch out my abdomen. 
Is that even supposed to help? No clue. 
It eventually goes away however, and I attempt to sleep again.

movement | this guy likes to boogie. 
He particularly likes to push outward, towards the world, like he's trying to escape out of my belly button.
Lots of hiccups, lots of kicks and jabs to the bladder.
It really is crazy that there is a tiny person living inside of me!

feeling | I really can't complain because I have been feeling great {while I am awake}. 
After a big day of lots of activity my back and hips do feel it though.

4 | what i'm looking forward to
So many things really.
Snuggling this little muffin is definitely number one though.
I can't wait to see what he looks like… if he will resemble one of my boys or have his own look. 
My farmer was a blonde haired blue eyed little guy, so maybe he will take after him.

I can't wait to see how Brody and Beckam deal with him.
They give him SO much love right now… but he's kind of contained and not taking up much of my time, ya know?
I am looking forward to exercising pain free.
I am already dreaming of abs, which for the record, I have never ever had.
But I think I want them.
I need to get super duper fit with a house full of boys.
Mama needs to hold her ground.
Sleeping on my stomach is going to be fabulous.
Having our first Christmas as a family of FIVE!

  1. We were the couple that was told we couldn't leave the hospital without naming our child, both times. Haha. So you're way ahead of us but I totally get wanting to really like your kids name. I won't lie, I didn't absolute love our seconds name but my husband did. It ended up being perfect and I am so so happy that we chose it. :))

  2. can't wait to see the nursery!!! and i recently heard the name boden at a wedding and thought it was cute! beau is also another one i love. just thought i would share! we are also working on a name for our baby boy- due in january. good luck! ♥

    1. bowen :) not boden {but that's kind of cute, too!} haha

  3. We finally picked our name this week, and I'm SO thrilled to have that settled. I was pretty sure I was going to be denied going home with my kid because I couldn't decide on a name for him. And I've never had abs either, but after the basketball currently hanging out in my stomach, they sure sound lovely.

  4. This a great post! I enjoyed reading it.

    I think this article could complement your post.

    Good luck with your future piece :)
