24 weeks

Photobucket you can see previous bump pictures here.
Photobucket It's been so long since I have posted a baby bump update that I just had to do one this week! Things have been just a little bit crazy around here and I feel like the hours of the day quickly slip away and I still have so much left to do! But with the time flying by I feel like this pregnancy is flying by too!

Wow! 24 weeks! Six months down and just three more to go! I am definitely feeling more pregnant as the Braxton hicks contractions pick up and the baby moves and kicks more harder. I am loving it though, knowing that this is the last time I will feel little flutters and kicks inside me and experience this special moment with this little one that no one else can. Both the baby and I are definitely growing and so far we are right on track. At our last appointment the baby's heartbeat was a strong 150 bpm! Up next, the wonderful glucose test! 

hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! I promise lots of posts and pictures soon!!

my appologies

i am writing to say i am very sorry for the lack of posts and pictures the last few days. my husband was out of town last weekend and i spent most of it planting and weeding and hopefully making a bountiful garden in the process. however, i believe the outside heat and too much sun lead me to get a horrible migraine sunday that lasted till yesterday! pregnancy and migraines equal no bueno! but i did want to post this favorite picture of mine of Miss Sabrina at the lake a few weeks ago. i just love her cute smile!!
  Photobuckethope you all are having a wonderful weeks so far! i have plenty of pictures to post soon! promise! :)

wordless(ish) wednesday

When we told people we were heading to Branson,MO. this weekend, almost everybody told us to visit Silver Dollar City. It's a large amusement park that is themed in the old mining time and has lots of rides and shops and shows. I was a little hesitant going at first because, hello! we have lots of little people with us! But everyone told us it would be worth it and boy were they right!
  Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket and just so you know. my three year old is fearless. seriously, if this kid was tall enough to ride it, he rode it. love the drive for adventure in this guy!
  Photobucketwe had a blast at Silver Dollar City. And you can just bet that we will be making another trip back there soon! You can see more pictures from our trip here

 Happy Wednesday!

21 weeks

Photobucket see previous bump pics here
Photobucket today we had our big ultrasound! and even though we are waiting till birth to find out the sex of the baby i still couldn't wait to see this beautiful person growing inside of me. the baby was definitely moving and a little camera shy, hiding it's face into my stomach but we got to see the cute little profile and a strong heartbeat. we do however, have to go back for a more in depth ultrasound in a couple days due to a small shadow in the baby's stomach, but i was told not to worry and that 9 out of 10 times they go away and are nothing to stress over.(try telling that to a pregnant woman!) i also found out that i also have an anterior placenta, which explains why i only feel the baby kick on my left side. but i feel the baby moving quite often and even the husband has seen it move around. 

we do have to say that we are already so in love with this little person. i seriously haven't been able to stop looking at the cute profile pictures, trying to picture who this little one resembles the most. it's crazy to think that in a few short months this little one will be here! so excited!

well, we are off for a fun filled weekend! hope you all have a wonderful weekend too!!

wordless(ish) wednesday

our new nightly routine has been taking long walks along some of the beautiful paths at some of our favorite parks. sometimes we even stop to fish for a few hours at the lakes and ponds nearby. we are so loving this new adventure and look forward to it on the warm and crisp nights.
  Photobucketi love watching . it's  always a new adventure every time we go and they  always get so excited.

PhotobucketPhotobucket and i stay behind the pack to wait for our little straggler. she always has to stop and look at bugs or pick out rocks or just sit for a bit to just watch everybody eles.

Photobucket i love when we stay to watch the sunset and look for the moon and stars. 

i am just loving our walks.

happy wednesday!! hope you are having a wonderful week!

20 weeks

to see previous bump pictures click here

first off, let me just explain that this isn't the best picture of me at 20 weeks, with what looks like the missing hand and all, but we quickly took this picture this morning on our way out to take our mr. chase to meet his new preschool teacher for next fall. so this is the best i could come up with. but i am excited to say that we are now halfway done! only 139 days left! we are super excited for next week when we have our big ultrasound! and even though we aren't going to find out the sex of the baby i am just really looking forward to seeing him or her and making sure he or she is healthy. this week i have been super exhausted and i am wondering if the baby is on a growth spurt or if i am just really tired. i definitely have a bump now and lots of strangers are asking about the due date. we are still discussing names and probably will till we meet this little person. as for now i am really enjoying this pregnancy and loving every move and kick and hiccup i feel!

hope you all have a very wonderful weekend!

well, this post comes with few words(as a type with my one good hand). Last night i was involved in a little accident involving a children's book, a slippery kitchen floor and my awesome equilibrium. needless it ended not so pretty and i have two bruised palms and a small fracture in my right wrist. other than being bruised and sore, both the baby and i are doing great! so for the next few post you may see some pretty pictures with very few words.
  Photobuckethope you are having a great week!
