31 & 32 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 31 weeks 
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a coconut
Maternity Clothes: I have two pairs of maternity pants that I wear. They are comfortable but I don't love them. Definitely looking forward to buttoning my old skinny jeans again.
Gender: It's a BOY!!! Yale Maguire Pack.
Movement: He moves a lot and is heads down and he kicks my ribs with his little feet. 
Sleep:  Sleeping great with Unisom.
Weight Gain:  17 pounds.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. Having more energy--I'm so tired lately!
Best moment this week: Yale has been getting lots of hiccups and it's so fun to feel them!
Cravings:  So the past couple of weeks I've needed lots of caffeine. I go every day and get some type of mixed beverage from the swig (usually Diet Mt Dew) in order to make it through the day. See's candy. Oreo's. 
Symptoms: Tired alllll the time. And my back pretty much is in constant pain. And I'm totally starting to waddle, ha!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 32 weeks 
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a large jicama.
Maternity Clothes: I have two pairs of maternity pants that I wear. They are comfortable but I don't love them. I hate wearing anything right or cumbersome (especially the unmentionables!) and pretty much hate getting dressed. I just want to wear Mr. Pack's basketball shorts and T shirts. Definitely looking forward to not having to dress this bump any longer!
Gender: It's a BOY!!! Yale Maguire Pack.
Movement: He moves a lot and is heads down and likes to kick my ribs. 
Sleep:  Sleeping great with Unisom.
Weight Gain:  27 pounds. Yeah I gained 10 pounds. TEN freaking pounds in 4 weeks. I wanted to bawl my eyes out at my appointment. And don't worry, Dr. Judd reminded me that I'm only 1 little pound away from being at my delivery weight with Hattie. Oh and I've exceeded the weight I was with Holden. Third pregnancies are for the birds. 
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. Having more energy--I'm so tired lately!
Best moment this week: getting to spend a lot of time looking at Yale during our 3D ultrasound. He smiled, frowned, opened his eyes and looooooves to have his hands AND feet next to his face. I wonder if he will hate to be swaddled?!
Cravings:  So the past couple of weeks I've needed lots of caffeine. I go every day and get some type of mixed beverage from the swig (usually Diet Mt Dew) in order to make it through the day. I wish I could say that I don't want any more sweets after my "jump" on the scale but I came home and comforted myself with See's. I have a problem. 
Symptoms: Tired alllll the time. And my back pretty much is in constant pain. I told Sean that I want to bring one of those inflatable donuts to sit on wherever we go (especially church) but he won't go for it. Hahaha!!!

Yale's Nursery

After having two little girls' I seriously had SO much fun dreaming up ideas for a little boys' nursery. And what was even more fun bringing some of those ideas to life! The pallet wall is most definitely my favorite feature in the room and I am so grateful to Mr. Pack for making my crazy design dreams come to life! He's truly the best and super patient :)

All of the pallet wood and apple crates came from the old Pack Fruit Farm in Alpine, UT.  I love the rustic feel that it brings to the room and it's neat to have a little bit of Pack heritage too!  The crib was used for both the girls' and I just refinished it with some chalk paint in the perfect baby blue.



I plan on replacing the magnet board with a sweet picture of Yale once he arrives.  The airplane and harley pictures are from Ross.


As soon as I saw this Restoration Hardware bedding I knew I had to have it.  Isn't it fabulous?!


Sweetest pillow from TJ Maxx.


Curtains, pillow, throw, blue storage boxes, picture frame and lamp from TJ Maxx.



Frame from TJ Maxx. Faux greenery and pot from Ikea.  Tray from Target.


The picture and dresser were in Mr. Pack's room all growing up.  I love having some pieces from his childhood to share and grow with Yale.  I reframed the picture in a barn wood frame that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  (And on the dresser, part of one of the knobs is missing and I'm on the hunt to try and find something to fix it instead of having to replace all the hardware.)   


Number boxes from Ross.  Picture frame from TJ Maxx. Faux greenery and pot from Ikea. 
Glass Jar from Walmart. 


Mr. Pack used to sleep with this beloved football every night. So sweet :)  AND his number in all the sports he played was always #3! 


This vintage cigar box came from my Great Grandma.


His room is ready! Now we just need a precious little boy to fill it.  Often I just come in here and look around and imagine myself singing many sweet lullaby's to my little one.  Only 9 more weeks and I cannot wait to meet him and see what he looks like!

Weeks 25-30 Oops!

So at 26 weeks I started having a lot of fluid leakage.  TMI?? I didn't know what it was, other than I knew I wasn't peeing my pants all the time, haha! Anyway, we ended up going to the hospital just to make sure it wasn't amniotic fluid. They monitored him for a while, checked everything out, ran a bunch of tests and everything looked good and after a few hours we went home. The next day they had me go and get my fluid levels checked just to be sure he had enough and those too looked great. I got to sneak a peek a baby boy too so that was fun! And the leaking stopped after a few weeks and we still don't know what was causing it. Really weird!

Best moment this week: after a lot of hard work and a couple of late nights we finished Yale's nursery and it looks amazing! 
Cravings:  So the past couple of weeks I've needed lots of caffeine. I go every day and get some type of mixed beverage from the swig (usually Diet Mt Dew) in order to make it through the day. Oreos. Lots of Oreos. Milkshakes. Hamburgers. Taco Bell. You know, really healthy stuff, ha!
Symptoms: Nesting. Like crazy nesting. Tired alllll the time. And my back pretty much is in constant pain. 69 more days, I can do this!!!
