27 weeks...a little late like usual


I am 29 weeks today. Hard to believe I am in the third trimester already. These are my 27 week pictures though {just a few weeks late}. My little helper was around like usual. He thought going outside sounded like more fun than watching his mom take silly belly pictures of his brother.


*I have been feeling pretty yucky the past few weeks. Mostly tired, no energy and uncomfortable. I was feeling a little shaky too...wondering if maybe it was a blood sugar issue. But I had my glucose test last week and passed {yay!}. If I am careful about what I eat it seems to help. But that is so hard when you just want to eat everything in sight...especially sweets! At my last appointment the NP told me I might want to slow down on the weight gain...nice. She must not remember that weight gain is my best pregnancy skill! :)

*Still no name for baby brother. We have a list of possibilities, but nothing that seems "perfect" yet. I am getting a little nervous, but hopefully one of these days a boy name will sound just right for our little guy.

*The plan was to start on the nursery after the big de-cluttering project and garage sale. So far I haven't gotten very far. I think I am going to go with red for the nursery. At least I have a plan, right? I have bookmarked a few inspiration pictures. And thanks to a sweet friend we have a cheap crib. It needs a little work, but I think it will be perfect. So, in the next few weeks we are hoping to finish getting the room cleaned out and painted and start getting it ready for baby brother. The summer is going too fast and September will be here before we know it!

Speaking of sweet boys...




My new friend Amy (we met at craft weekend back in January) has a fundraiser going on right now to bring home their sweet boy Davis. Amy is funny, compassionate, and has such a big heart...so does her family. There are some awesome giveaways too...just incase you needed to be enticed. Go check it out here and help bring Davis home to his forever family.

Happy weekend!

Don't worry about the weight gain. I gained 50-60 pounds with each pregnancy. That sounds awful, doesn't it? Good thing I lost it all each time! :) But I was NOT a cute pregnant lady and you are super cute!

Red would be a beautiful color... and I just love baby naming! One of the first questions I ask my laboring moms is what they will name their new bun... so I can refer to he or she by name during the labor & delivery!

You love vibrant, happy, and healthy to me!!!

Jess, you look fantastic. I remember gaining weight was one of my skills as well. Unfortunately for me, it's a skill I maintained! LOL You are all baby, so I think you will look like you have never have one let alone 3 children. Can I ask you a personal question? Do you and Joel plan to have anymore children? I could see you with at least 4!

I think you look awesome! Only things growing are your belly and your hair. :) Sorry you're not feeling well though. Have fun with the nursery! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I love the pictures, Jess! Beautiful.

Also, have you ever shared before where you got your chalkboard (or how you made it)? I am in the market for a big one like that, so am highly curious. Can you share?? :)

Jess, you look great! Anxious to "meet" your new son. Praying he will be bold for Christ someday!

Ahh, Jess! You are such a cute pregnant woman! :)

What about the name Camden? Cora, Levi and Camden. Sounds good! Whatever name you chose for your little guy, I know it will be a great one! I hope the rest of your pregnancy flies by and an easy labor. ♥

You look beautiful!
Names are hard for us too, we've got our list and talk about it often. Hopefully something will just click for both of us, soon :)!

I gained a bunch during pregnancy. I couldn't help it. I was so so hungry. But you do look great!

My son, Shepherd, has a red nursery. I love love red.

I looked long and hard at your 13 week and 27 week photos, and the only thing that looked bigger to me was your belly. I wish I looked that good through my pregnancies. My first one I gained 70 lbs, but lost it by her first birthday. The second one I gained 50 lbs, and have only been able to lose 10 of it since he was born over 2 years ago!

Red will be so fun to decorate with. Don't worry what the drs tell you, you look great! I had trouble with my blood sugar as well, but passed my glucose test.

What a beautiful, beautiful woman you are! You have a sort of serenity about you. A glow.

I was determined to be in the 25-35 range and I think I am already past 40! I even think that I am eating ok. I guess we will deal with the results later...Red sounds adorable! I would not stress too much about the nursery, the baby won't know the difference. Take care of yourself! I was planning on using Seth Adriel, but my SIL used Seth a few months ago, so we had to come up with something else...

You look great. Pray the rest goes well for you.

My brother's name is KYLE and I have always loved that name for a boy....

What about Jake? I always loved that name because it was my grandfather's nickname. I wanted a Jacob and call him Jake.

Glucose test indicates high blood sugar levels, shaky is an indicator of low blood sugar. Try eating small more frequent meals and keep in mind your body may be craving the sweets because you need them with the dipping blood sugars and the resulting shakiness. Be careful, you don't want to faint from low blood sugar!

you look amazing!

I gained 50-60 lbs with each of my pregnancies as well, and got similar comments from my OB. way to make a girl feel good, no?

no worries about finding a name ~ I think a name will find him. We had a short list of names for our fourth boy, but found we had to 'sleep on it'...and the name was perfect in the morning.

continuing to pray for your sweet little family ;0)

hugs mama!

in 9 weeks, I BETTER look like that - I'm quite nervous it just won't be the case though. I'm afraid I'll be hearing some advice from the doctor too. I'm already cringing at myself in pictures!

i had blood sugar problems and also passed my glucose test with my second and failed with my third. even though i passed, if it's dropping too fast you'll get shaky and sick. eating no sugar and few carbs really made me feel better- hope that helps!?
