Weekend Rundown!

Hi friends!  Happy Monday!!

I had a chipper Friday post started up on Friday & then got not-so-great news at the Dr later that morning & it totally changed my mood - I was not chipper any more.  {FYI, everything is fine, just no darn progression in the dilation department}  I was really bummed, let myself cry about it and later decided that I could either stay in that bad mood or make the best of the fact that Matt & I had at least one more weekend as just the two of us & we were going to make the best of it & have fun!  So, that's exactly what we did!

Friday we decided to go see American Sniper at Coyote Drive-In that night.  It was the perfect date night!  We were able to take Bingham along, got there early to get a good parking spot & grab some dinner.  American Sniper was a great movie, enough said!  The Wedding Ringer happened to be the second feature so, we decided to be wild & stayed to see it - got home after midnight & all!  It was a funny movie but, we definitely could have lived without one part of the movie.  Overall, they were both good in their own respect & so glad we got to see both of them!  We love going to the drive-in & can't wait to go with Jack this Spring/Summer!

Saturday started out a little lazy but, we treated ourselves to brunch at Gloria's & then ran some errands.  It was such a gorgeous day weather wise so, it was really nice to be out & about!  Gloria's has the best bean dip & salsa... & our potentially last date day had to be documented!

I opted for the Mexican Omelette & it was ooh so good!  Plus $1 mimosas with the purchase of a brunch item... Holla!  I didn't partake but, I will definitely be back after Jack is born!  ;)

Sunday we spent the day literally being big, lazy bums... and it was amazing!!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow as I will be sharing Jack's nursery!!  I am SO excited to finally share it with y'all!!

Baby Yancey - 38 Week Bumpdate!

I'm so behind on posting this bumpdate... Actually 39 weeks exactly here!

How far along: 38 Weeks

Baby Size: A pumpkin - 18.9 - 20.9 in. long & 6.2 - 9.2 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Oh yes... & Can they make maternity shoes!?

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  No new stretch marks but, still swelling in my feet

Sleep: I'm back to not sleeping great but, I feel like that's a given at this point in any pregnancy.

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Nothing... 

Gender: Boy!

Movement:  Oh yes, still moving quite a bit!  When he stretches out I can feel him at the very bottom of my stomach & at the very top!  That's when I wish I had a longer torso - ha!

Symptoms: Mainly just swelling in my feet & carpal tunnel in my hands - primarily in my right hand

Labor Signs: I did have a few good contractions on Monday during the day but, they were several hours apart & nothing else has happened since.

Belly button in or out: Flat

Wedding rings on or off: Off

Mood:  Hopeful... & ready.  So ready!

Nursery:  It's done... pictures coming next week!!

What I miss:  My feet not swelling & just being able to do as much as my back will allow.  With my feet swelling it's really slowed me down because if they start getting too big it hurts to walk.  #overit

Best moment this week: Last week was my last full week of work before I start maternity leave - that was surreal!

What I'm looking forward to:  If this actually written before Friday mornings appointment it would have been looking forward to that appointment buuut, it didn't go as I had hoped so, looking forward to this next Friday - I'll be 40 weeks & hoping for some progress!

Well, this is different... I'm here... On a Monday... Blogging!!

Anyways... we had a fun & semi low-key weekend.  Not that we can be getting too crazy these days but, ya know...  Friday night Matt, my dad, his girlfriend & I all went to the Ft Worth Stock Show Ranch Rodeo.  If you've never been to a ranch rodeo, you need to see at least one in your life - they're different than a regular rodeo & a lot of fun!

Saturday my girlfriends came over for breakfast - Erin was a doll & picked up Fuzzy's Taco's for everyone - ohmagosh good!  Then Matt & I were off to return/exchange baby items at Target.  It was such a gorgeous day Saturday I so badly wanted to go sit on a patio (with a cold drink!) after our Target trip but, my poor feet were swelling too bad that I had to get home & prop them up.  Boo!  But, that was made up for when I went to get a pedicure on Sunday... Oh my gosh I haven't had one in forever & have actually heard they can cause you to go into labor so, I've avoided them this whole pregnancy.  And THEN I see two other pregnant ladies in the salon while I was there Sunday!?!?  My best friend went with me & it was a really nice, relaxing afternoon!!  I won't be waiting so long for my next one!

Sunday evening we decided to try a new recipe that we had seen on TV made with Pillsbury crescent rolls - Crescent Pizza Pockets.  You can't ever go wrong with crescent rolls so we knew it would be good!  Similar to my homemade Stromboli or a homemade pizza but, it was a nice little change up & super easy!  {Recipe here}

Not as pretty as the original recipe but, they were good!!
