Ergobaby carrier giveaway!

I just entered a giveaway from Mandy at She Breathes Deeply for an Ergobaby Bundle of Joy baby carrier!

I actually am registered for this very one...
They are a little pricy- as opposed to say, a $30 one from Wal-mart.  BUT these are approved for older and heavier babies as well.  In her blog post, Mandy said her husband even carried their 22lb toddler with ease.  It's also recommended for people with back issues.  I don't necessarily have "back issues" but I love the idea that it won't kill my back to use it.  I'm pretty much counting on a bigger baby (probably at least 8lb) so I love the idea that I can use this into toddlerhood!

Here's hoping I win this thing!  Haha-- and go check it out and enter yourself if you are expecting or already have a little one! :)

Behind again... (Weeks 24-26)

So I'm behind on the pregnancy updates yet again.  If you want to keep up better, I'm much better at doing my vlogs semi-on time, so go to my Youtube channel to watch them :)

In the meantime... today I'm 26 weeks pregnant!  INSANE.  That means this is my LAST week in the 2nd Trimester!  Holy cow!  I'm almost 2/3 of the way done!  I also realized that today I'm exactly 6 months pregnant.  (Even though most people think of 24 weeks as 6 months, because 6x4=24-- there aren't always 4 weeks in a month!  And the 40weeks of pregnancy doesn't equal exactly 9 months, rather 9 1/2 :)  Pregnancy factoid of the day!)

So here's my weekly pictures 

And here's my little update thingy :)

How far along: 26 Weeks
Size of Baby: English hothouse cucumber  (yeah I had to look that up lol)
Total Weight Gain: 15lbs!
Maternity Clothes: Yeah pretty much everything now, unless it's yoga pants or something.
Gender: We're having a baby BOY!!!
Movement: Moving a TON still.  I can't tell what position he's in cause I feel kicks EVERYWHERE.
Best thing this week: Still loving feeling him move around in there :)  Last weekend we got his room  painted :)
Sleep: Meh it's good.  Getting harder to get comfortable though.  And I discovered even though we don't have room for it.. I want a king size bed! ;)  Love my hubby but man I wish I could spread out more!
What I miss: It's getting harder to bend down to get something I drop
Cravings: MEXICAN FOOD.  Like the real stuff- not taco bell lol.
Symptoms: back pain if I do too much during the day (sometimes hips too), and TMI alert but I've noticed I've leaked some colostrum.  lol.  Kind of odd but I guess a good sign!
What I’m looking forward to: Our babymoon-- which we've decided to do a "staycation"  We are going to go to Charleston on a Saturday and go to an elective ultrasound place and get a 3D ultrasound :)  Maybe do some shopping and go to some restaurants down there we don't have at home  (I'm thinking IHOP!) and then play hookie from church on Sunday and go do something of my hubby's choice (probably I will be accompanying him for 9 holes of golf-- and who knows what else :))  Not sure when exactly this is taking place-- depends on when I can get an appointment!

And here's the links to the videos I've done since then
