 Symptoms: braxton hicks..I never had these with Parker, hungry all the time, hands and feet are starting to swell, heat flashes, bad back pain, stuffy nose, HOT ALL THE TIME!! In so much pain around my pelvic bone, I am really carrying this one different.

Carnival

Parker had been asking to go to the carnival everytime we pass by it at the mall. We decided to take her last night before it got really hot this week and figured it would be less crowded. It turned out perfect, it was breezy and there was hardly anyone there yet when we got there.

First up...she rode the worm ride. We were so proud of her. I definitely thought she would have a melt down but she proved us wrong!

Then she wanted to ride the motorcycles...but as soon as daddy stepped away the tears started coming!

We then wanted to spend a fortune on games...seriously their games were so expensive. $10 for that little teddy bear and who knows how much we spent to get that blow up thing. But Parker had fun so that's what matters.

One last ride we talked her into doing..the BIG slide.

Then it was home for a bath and playtime with Coop.
Typical Parker smile!

Liam's nursery

We finished Liam's nursery just in time for our baby shower last week. We had the shower at my house so people could see the nursery as well.
My hubby & I worked as a team...I picked out and bought everything...he put it together and hung it all...or is that how it always works?? ;) haha I love the way it turned out. It's very calm and peaceful, much different that Parker's PINK room!







 Pinterest, of course :)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I quit looking until my awesome husband looked for me and told me...ahhhh ;)
Maternity Clothes: of course!

Movement: TONS, his jabs are really starting to hurt not that he is stronger and has less room in there
Sleep: I've been sleeping really good the past few nights...no more restless legs thank goodness!
What I miss: Not peeing every 15 minutes, being able to bend over, shaving my legs haha..that's a hard one now, normal clothes, sleeping on my back and stomach, picking up Parker, walking without running out of breath.
Cravings: Still craving Cheddars, I want it everyday...mmm Spinach Dip! Caffeine, sweets
 Symptoms: braxton hicks..I never had these with Parker, hungry all the time, hands and feet are starting to swell, heat flashes, bad back pain, stuffy nose, HOT ALL THE TIME!! I'm curious if I have dialated a little because I am starting to get mild cramps.
Best Moment this week: We picked a DATE!! Not the date I wanted but I guess I can't be selfish. We set my c-section for Tuesday, July 3rd. Tanner's birthday is July 2nd so I chose that one first but he was booked so I went with the next option. Busy July month. Tanner, Liam, the 4th, our niece Lindsay, my SIL Cara and Parker will all share a July birthday!!
We also took 3 Year pics of Parker this weekend. It's a little early but I am trying to get everything out of the way before Liam comes. She also took a couple maternity ones of me too. Parker was a ham but did so good! Those pics as well as baby shower pics I will post soon.
Patch is the size of a pineapple and should weigh around 4 1/2 lbs.
