Happy Halloween + Tidbits


I just love this time of year and seeing everyone's kiddos (and yes, I'm including dogs in that) dressed up. To think that next year we will have 9 month old to experience this holiday with excites me beyond measure! 

Our city does things a little differently...we actually had trick-or-treat last night. Whenever Halloween falls on a Friday, they have it the night prior because (from what I heard) they are concerned with the kids safety and people driving drunk/going to parties over the weekend. So, last night my boys got into character while I snuggled up in a chair next to them and watched them pass out candy :) 

We had A LOT of trick-or-treaters this year in our neighborhood, it was so fun to see everyone's costumes.

 {they looked pretty cute, no?}

Remember how I mentioned we had a 3D/4D ultrasound the other day?

Well, Camden was a little stinker! He had his leg up over his head, covering his face, for the majority of the session. He would briefly bring it down then lift the other leg (or an arm) up, so we didn't get to see him very much, but Ultrasona is bringing us back next week to try again! ha. 

We did find out from the ultrasound tech that she would estimate that he weighs 3.5 lbs and he is head down. 3.5 POUNDS! I can't believe how fast he's grown!! She also showed me how he's positioned so now when I feel him move, I can distinguish between a head and a butt or an arm vs a leg (which is nice because let's be serious, I had no idea before...)

Another big moment this week, that I briefly mentioned yesterday, was surpassing my goal of exercising 3-4 times per week until 30 weeks! 

 This goal was really something that I wanted to complete...not because I have ever been concerned about gaining weight, but because working out makes me happy and keeps me, and baby, healthy and strong! My doc gave me the go ahead to continue up until the day I go into labor, should I want to, and I plan to keep it up at least until 36 weeks or until I feel too tired to do so. I will definitely be celebrating with Billy tonight!

 We don't have much on the books for this weekend, for once. I hope to get some shopping in (for essential baby things) and have a date night with Billy since he was in Florida last weekend! 

Hope everyone has a fun (but safe) Halloween weekend! Someone please enjoy a pumpkin beer for me! :) 


  1. Such a bummer about the baby's positioning! Glad they are bringing you in again though :) I was wondering the same thing about how we know if he moves or where his head is, hopefully our U/S tech will give us the same pointers! Have a great weekend!

  2. so what kind of exercises can you do while pregnant? (obviously never had a baby before so i don't know!). are you walking, speed walking, jogging running? you have to be the most adorable pregnant gym goer i've ever seen!

    1. haha! Aw, thanks! You can do anything that you did prior to pregnancy. Walk/jog/run - anything! You just don't want to start running if you haven't ran before. Or you don't want to get into spinning, let's say, if you've never done it before. I mainly run (which nowadays is turning into a fast jog) and do spin classes! I also do the elliptical and stair master sometimes :)

  3. You are way too adorable with that belly!! You look great girlfriend :) Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Great job working out!!! Any suggestion for work out clothes to last you through pregnancy? My regular ones aren't cutting it anymore!

  5. Haha, those ultrasounds are always a lucky packet! Both my girls covered their faces until I ate a chocolate bar, drank a Coke, walked up and down the stairs and bounced on an exercise ball. And then they said hi and showed their faces x

  6. Cute pumpkins!! And that ring. Geesh. That's a beauty!

  7. I worked out until the day before labor and my recovery was a breeze. I totally believe it staying healthy throughout your pregnancy. You go girl on completing that goal!

  8. I am so inspired that you have worked out like you have during your pregnancy! That is one thing I want to keep up for sure and I hope I'll be lucky enough to feel up to it. That outfit with the red and black shirt is too cute!
