"Before the Baby Fun"

This weekend we had our last bit of "before the baby fun". I have a feeling we are not going to be able to be this spontaneous after Holden gets here.

Mike called me from work on Friday and said he had been given 2 tickets to the South Carolina vs Navy Football game on Saturday. Neither one of us were fond of either team, we are UGA and Army fans, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to go to the game. I quickly scrambled to find a sitter, and my sister thankfully stepped up and offered to take London.. So we met halfway (she lives 2.5 hours away) and she took London down to Savannah for the weekend. 

Our seats at the game were incredible, and only about 20 rows from the field. It was a great game too, which we were not really expecting. It was a blast. Well until we hit 1.5 hours of traffic trying to get 5 miles to the movie theater afterwards. Yep, we decided to really take advantage of our child free status and go to a movie after the game. Mike wanted to see Drive, and how could I possibly pass up a Ryan Gosling movie? 

Don't worry we were not the only ones having fun. This is what London was doing while we were at the game. 

Lori said he refused to take the helmet off. :)

However it wasn't all fun and games. London and I both eventually paid for our weekend of fun.

First my feet decided that they did NOT enjoy the football game quite as much as I did. I will be honest, I really didn't walk around that much. We had parking pass from Mike's company that allowed us to park right next to the stadium. So I didn't even have to walk a full block to get in. Then at the game, I made myself comfortable and sat for most of the game. Really only getting up and down for bathroom breaks. :)
These were my feet today. They were WAY worse last night, but I couldn't take a picture then. 
See I told you I had cankles.

OMG!!! Isn't there supposed to be a bone sticking out right there? 

Then poor London fell on the corner of a table at Lori's and got this beauty on his face. The top is really bruised, but other wise it just looks like a big scratch. Goofy kid! Lori said he didn't even cry. I bet he wishes he had been wearing his helmet then. :)

So there you go, that was our big weekend, and a nasty picture of my cankles. Aren't you glad you decided to read my blog today? Hahaha!!

32 weeks and Cankles

I've made it to my next goal of 32 weeks. My Dr even cheered when she walked into the room at yesterdays Dr appointment. 32 weeks is quite the accomplishment when we first started with a shortened cervix at 20 weeks.

Now with all of that said, I have an announcement to make...

I have cankles!!


How did this happen to me? I have calves and I have ankles. I DO NOT have cankles. 

I'm not quite sure if it is from swelling (hopefully) or if it's from pregnancy weight gain (18 lbs thus far). Either way I don't care, I just know that jeans have now become my new BFF. I've got to hide those big boys some how. 

In another glamorous pregnancy news, my feet have grown a full shoe size. I've gone from an already large size 10 to a small row boat in just a few months. I swear I can't even wear my flip flops anymore. Did I mention my feet are swollen/fat too? What am I supposed to wear now? 

Thankfully these nice Chinese ladies agreed to make me some new shoes, because I'm pretty sure my days of shopping off the rack are OVER!

At my 32 week appointment the other day my Dr  made a plan to pull me off all my meds at 35 weeks. WOOOHOOO!!! I love having a plan. It gives me something to look forward to, ya know besides having a baby hahaha! 

And here is a crappy cell phone pic of my 32 week belly!
