Pregnancy Week 33: Baby #2


Friday morning I had my 32 week check-up with Dr Adamek. Everything went well and baby T's heart beat sounded loud, clear, and strong. He is currently measuring a week and a half ahead at 33 and 1/2 weeks; no wonder I feel little "piggy's" in my rib cage all the time. We should know our delivery date and time at my next appointment. Baby T will be here either on November 6th or the 13th. I will admit that I am starting to get a little antsy not knowing when he is coming. I plan on working all of October and the first two days of November before going on maternity leave. Energy wise, it fluctuates. For the past couple of days I have had more energy and am able to do more things around the house like wash an entire plastic bin of 6-12 month clothes and hang them all up in the closet even though I had to purchase 100 more hangers in order to do so. I have felt very productive in the nesting department this past week and only have a few more things to do before I can just relax. :] I'm still craving Kit Kat bars and heartburn comes and goes; I have found that peanut butter gives me the worst heartburn in the world than actually eating spicy food which doesn't make much sense to me. I cannot believe that in just a few short weeks baby T will be here. Trevor Dear and I are still figuring out the spelling of his first name and hope to nail it down soon. So far, baby T is 17 to 18 inches tall, weights in around 4 to 5 pounds, and is the size of a durian even though he is probably bigger than that, LOL!

Home to Oly

We packed our bags and headed up to Oly for our last trip before baby T arrives in November this past Saturday. We had a real good time. It was nice relaxing (though I was pretty miserable and exhausted the whole time due to my pregnancy) but Amari was excited to see everyone, especially his GiGi. He even got a new WAZZU shirt thanks to Papa and Nana. Go Cougs! As you can see, the Durant house is divided when it comes to college football. I still love my Ducks though. ;D

Our main purpose for taking the trip up North was to watch Capital play and cheer on Baylor. Since moving down South we haven't been able to watch a single one of his games and seeing as it's his senior year and Capital was playing Tumwater we had no choice but to go. Amari refused to nap no matter how many times we tried to put him down. He was too excited about seeing everyone that he didn't want to miss a single second. He even got a surprise when we arrived at the game and cousin Bridget was there! She had taken the long trip from Pullman to watch her brother play. The game was packed and Mr. Amari danced the entire time while the band played and screamed, "Touchdown" and "Go Bay," at the top of his lungs for most of the game until he fell asleep in the third quarter. Like his Mom and Dad, he loves football even though he thinks every team is the Seahawks!  The outcome of the game didn't fall in our favor with Capital loosing to Tumwater 35 to 28 in two overtimes; however, we had a great time. It was a great game and I was just happy that we got to watch Baylor play at least one game this season. I'm crossing my fingers and wishing the Capital Cougars the best of luck and hoping that they win the 2A state title this year.

We may no longer live in Oly but we still consider it our home. It was nice being home and spending time with Trevor's side of the family. We had a nice dinner Sunday night before saying our goodbyes and heading back home to the Couve. The next time we head back to Oly baby T will be with us for the Turkey holiday! =D

Chowing down on popcorn and super into the game.

Checking out the cheerleaders!

Baylor is somewhere in there... He's number 70. :]

Daddy time!

We may have to put him in lessons in the near future.
He loves his great grandparents!

Pregnancy Week 30: Baby #2

I have no energy these days. It's crazy to think that just four weeks ago I had all this energy and over the last couple of weeks it has gone out the window. I can barely make it through the day and it is definitely a challenge keeping up with my two and a half year old. Amari has loads of energy. He has been active since utero and lately it seems like his energy levels have been out of this world. Sometimes I wish he could give me some of his energy. I could really use it these days. I have to keep reminding myself that baby T is getting taller and fatter and in a few short weeks we will be meeting him. I cannot wait. Eight to nine weeks seems like a really LONG time, but it's not. The days may seem long but they fly bye.  I've just been insanely tired and my back is starting to ache a lot. Thankfully, Trevor Dear massages my back and swollen feet at the end of the day and I don't even have to ask him to do it. I actually look forward to it. There is nothing like getting a back massage and a foot massage every single night. It relaxes me and I'm actually able to fall asleep comfortably for a few hours before waking up to use the loo or change positions because Mr. T is kicking me in the ribs or doesn't like the position I'm lying in. I've been craving Kit Kat bars like no other... I don't even like them, but every time I eat one it is the best tasting thing in the world. I think I need to stock up on Halloween candy until this baby comes out. Trev and I decided on our delivery option. We are going with another c-section instead of trying for a VBAC. I have my 30 week check up on Wednesday morning and we will be scheduling our appointment and should have a date soon. So far, baby T is 15 to 16 inches tall, weights in around 2.5 to 4 pounds, and is the size of a cucumber! He also is growing a lot of hair! How do I know this? Because of the terrible heartburn I've been experiencing of course! =P


My muse at the moment. 
I'm usually not a fan of these delicious chocolate covered wafers, but right now I'm loving them!
