Week 26



What's Going on in There?
Little man is the size of a head of lettuce or a butternut squash this week!  He is probably over 2 pounds and around 14 inches long.  Seriously, he’s getting so big! His eyes are opening and he can detect light and dark.  I’ve been wanting to shine a flashlight on him to see how he reacts, but haven’t had time yet. He is also sucking his thumb and practicing his breathing these days so he is ready for the outside world!

Maternity Clothes? 
Completely.  I am really loving dresses right now, I am glad AZ is warm enough for them already! I ordered a few more tanks and maxi skirts from Old Navy this week, I think they will be my staple for the next few months!
Weight? 
Around the same as last week, maybe about 18 pounds. I haven’t checked in a few days, I’ve been running late in the mornings.
Stretch Marks? 
Nope

Movement? 
So much.  Like last week, less kicks, but more rolls. Probably a few times a time I yelp out loud because he moves in such a weird way that it surprises me. Like I can feel his whole arm or foot or who knows what drag down the side of my body.  Not my favorite sensation honestly.
Food Cravings? 
Nope.
Anything Making you Queasy or Sick? 
Thankfully I can continue to say no to this!

What I Miss? 
I miss sleeping through the night. It’s been rough this week.
Nausea/Vomiting?  
None at all.
Symptoms? 
I think I am starting to get some acid reflux with some of the foods I eat which is no fun. Pregnancy insomnia sucks too!
Labor Signs? 
Nope
Gender? 
Blue, blue, blue…..boy!

Belly Button In or Out?
Ugh. It’s out.  It’s soooo weird.  Thankfully there is still a bit of a dip where it is so you can’t tell through my clothes, but it’s definitely poked out now.
Wedding Rings On or Off? 
On, but I think they are starting to get a bit tighter. Some days they leave a bit of a mark.
Sleep?
Having a rough time these days. The insomnia is no fun.  I fall asleep fine, but at some point in the middle of the night I wake up and I stay awake for way too long.  I’ve also been having bad allergy problems this week and my runny/stuffy nose is keeping me awake too!
What I'm Looking Forward To? 
Next week C and I are headed to his hometown to visit his family before his season starts and Noah comes.  I am not looking forward to the freezing cold weather in Maryland, but I know C will be really happy to be at home with his family so I will make do.  Wish me luck, I barely have any warm clothes that fit over the bump!!!

Ipsy Review - February

Ipsy!  Ipsy! Ipsy!

I feel like this bag took forever to get to me this month.  I used to get it around the 10th, now its almost always a week after that.  Boo! That being said, this is still one of my favorite times of the month….I love getting this bag in the mail! I think it’s the best bag out there, especially for such a low price of $10!  If you are looking to start a beauty subscription, I would definitely try Ipsy first.

The theme of this month’s bag is “Ipsy Love,” which fits the month. I think the pink patterned bag is really cute!

So here it is…the February Ipsy bag!  

            1)     Luxie Large Angled Brush – (FULL SIZE)
            I already have a brush like this that I barely use, but I think its because its just too flimsy. It 
            barely puts any color on my face!  I am excited to try this one, especially with one of the 
            products below. Hopefully it will be better!
Full Size: $16.00 My Value: $16.00

           2)    ‘tini beauty Eye Shadow in “Pearl Fizz” – .06 oz. (FULL SIZE)
            This seems like such a boring color to me, but then I realized I’ve been searching for a  
            “highlight” color like this to include in my makeup bag.   I always use a highlight color, but 
            a few of the eye shadow palettes I own don’t actually include one light enough for that 
            purpose (which I find odd) so this will come in handy.  I can keep it in my bag for when I 
            need a lighter color.
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00

           3)    Cargo Lip Gloss in “Anguilla” – 4.5 mL (FULL SIZE)
            Ok the sizing on this seems really odd, I can’t figure it out.  Online, their full size product 
            shows at 2.5 mL, but this one is 4.5 mL?  So they are calling in a “mini” lip gloss but it is 
            almost twice the size of a regular one?  And jeez, a regular one has to be really small 
            considering this one is pretty tiny.  Not worth it to me. As for my review, this totally isn’t my 
            color so I won’t be using it, which is a bummer. I am a big fan of lip glosses!
Full Size: $16.00 for 2.5 mL My Value: $29.52

4)  Model Co Blush in “Peach Bellini” – .12 oz. (FULL SIZE)
Oddly enough, this week I have really been in search of a good peach colored blush!  This one seems like it may be a bit too dark, but I’ll have to try it to find out!  My current blush brush was too rough for this brand of blush last time I tried it (way too much wasted product), so maybe I can use my new brush to try this one out! I am guessing a bit on the value here, as this size actually includes a mini brush on their website.
Full Size: $22.00 (includes mini brush) My Value: $18.00

       5)  Joya No. 1 Parfum – .05 oz.
As I am not too into smelling like a flowering grandma, this isn’t really for me. I do find the packaging interesting though, it’s a teeny tiny rollerball!
Full Size: $30.00 for .34 oz My Value: $4.41

Final Cost: $10.00
Final Value: $79.93

Ooo I actually really like this month’s bag!  The lip gloss isn’t totally my color and the perfume doesn’t suit me, but the other items are right up my alley!  For the $10 I paid, I think I got a great deal!

What are your thoughts?

(As always, I swear I’m not a review blog….I just like sharing these things in hopes that other people will get to have the same fun that I do!  I am not compensated in any way.)

Week 25



What's Going on in There?
This week he is the size of a califlower! He is about 13.5 inches and probably about a pound a half.  I also read my uterus is the size of a soccer ball these days. Holy cow, that’s huge! Little man is gaining a sense of gravity these days so he can now tell which way is up or down. He’s also really starting to gain some fat. Grow little man, grow!

Maternity Clothes? 
Yep!  One of my mom’s clients just gave me a huge trash bag of her old maternity clothes from fancy places like a A Pea in the Pod, so I am quite excited. It’s like a whole new wardrobe!
Weight? 
Broke the 160 mark yesterday….boo. Sitting around 17 pounds gained total.  I do have to say, and this will sound odd, I like the way in which my body has gained weight.  I’d say maybe each week or two, the scale jumps 2 or so pounds in one day which makes me quite sad. The next day though, I am back down to where I was and I gradually move up to those two pounds again within the next week.  It’s like my body prepares me for what’s to come with the number on the scale and then gives me time to get used to that so it doesn’t feel so painful when it’s for real!  This has probably happened at least 4-5 times, which is kind of weird.
Stretch Marks? 
Nope

Movement? 
Oh my goodness yes.  Little man is moving like crazy these days.  I read the next three weeks is when I will feel his movements the most since he is getting bigger plus he still has some room to wiggle a lot!
Food Cravings? 
Not really….just you know….ice cream. Everyday.
Anything Making you Queasy or Sick? 
Not at all, yay!

What I Miss? 
Nothing really this week!

Nausea/Vomiting?  
Nope.
Symptoms? 
My belly is starting to itch which is no fun.  Wearing maternity pants up and over it is really making the problem worse!
Labor Signs? 
Not at all

Gender? 
Bouncing baby boy!
Belly Button In or Out?
You guys, my belly button is officially flat.  It’s soooo weird.  I honestly didn’t think this would happen, especially this quick! Sometimes it even sticks out a bit, depending on how I am sitting/standing.
Wedding Rings On or Off? 
On!  I can still twirl them pretty easily….hoping it stays that way!
Sleep?
I’ve had a bit of insomnia this week which really hasn’t been fun. I wake up in the middle of the night to pee….then lay there for what seems like hours trying to fall back asleep. Of course, right as I do, my alarm goes off. No Bueno.  I’m quite proud of myself from the Vegas trip though, after driving 5 hours we arrived there around 10pm on Friday night.  I stayed awake until 4am!  I have no clue how I did that.  I even woke up the next morning an hour before our alarm at 8:30 which is just crazy.  I paid for it a bit this week though…
 
What I'm Looking Forward To? 
I think C and I are going to do the 3D ultrasound in a few weeks (around 28 weeks).  I can’t wait for that!  I want to see even more what little man looks like!  C thinks ultrasounds are creepy which is so weird to me, I think they are incredible!  Since he loves me though, he’s willing to go with me and even part with the money to get it done :)
