Preggo Stats

I stole this from a friends blog but thought it would be a good way to share some statistics:
How far along? 26+ weeks
Total weight gain: 12 pounds (the only good thing about not being able to keep anything down for 4 months)
Maternity clothes? all things elastic waste- gym shorts! Gabe's tank tops and tee-shirts, and billowy dresses
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Pretty uncomfortable but sleeping well. I swap sides at least twice an hour. Thanking God that Gabe can sleep through it.
Best moment this week: Hearing Finnegan's nice strong heartbeat Monday night. After the midwife removed the doppler Finn moved to the other side and kicked me...she is already full of spunk!
Movement: Non-stop! She is totally nuts. We can feel where she is and kind of push her over and make her move too. She loves music, listening to a kids cd now- THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS and she is dancing!
Food cravings: Nada, appetite is pretty normal. I do like chocolate or ice cream every day but can't blame it on the girl.
Gender: 100% girl unless sono was wrong- we wouldn't know that until D day!
Name: Finnegan Marie (pretty sure on the middle name). If she comes out and we aren't feeling Finn it'll change but she is already Finnegan to us.
Labor Signs: umm, NO!
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Coffee, bending normally, sleeping on my back and belly
Weekly Wisdom: When you need help ask! When you don't- JUST DO IT!
Milestones: Guess this means progress we are making on getting ready: Birthing class almost booked, glucose test taken, book shelves cleared of some space, winter clothes put much more to do!
Photo- 6 months

So busy- tons of pics to share...

These days the only real request I get is- SEND PICS OF THE I'll def have Gabe take a bunch of those this week bc our Finn Girl sure is popping out. In the meantime I have some pictures of our last month:

1: Crib assembly...super easy to put up and now my girl has a nice cozy bed! Many people ask us if we are moving now that we have a babe on the way, and the good news is that we have a teeny little room/closet for her so until #2 would come we are good in our current one bedroom.

2. Street Fair- good food and good times strolling 5th Avenue in the neighborhood.

3. Wedding in Tarrytown, NY. Gabe and I rented a car for the day to go to a co-workers wedding. It was so pretty- wedding in garden, cocktail hour at the castle, and reception at the carriage house!

4. Alli, my 17 year old sister, was in town with a singing group from NC so we went to see her perform. What a treat to see her! She even got to feel Finn kick which made my mom a bit jealous!

I have been feeling so much better these days so we are really busy catching up with long lost friends over good meals(that live two blocks away;), getting out and about in the neighborhood, and getting the apartment ready for our girl. We only have three more months and are so excited to meet this little acrobat!

Showers and weddings

So the reason our baby moon ended up being in NC was because we had a wedding on Saturday in Chapel Hill and then the next Saturday my best friend had a bridal shower! We really did have a fantastic time but it seems like ages ago as work and life here in NY hasn't slowed down!
We didn't take any pics of the wedding but this was the two of us all dressed up on the college campus.

Gabe and I in Chapel Hill- we loved walking around the campus early Sunday morning.

Brunch with Susan and her soon to be hubbie- Curt!

Susan's garden party! She looked amazing and will be the most beautiful bride in just a few weeks!

Bachelorette Party- I was the chubby one;)

Blowing Rock

Gabe and I had a few events last month that brought us to NC~ we decided to make a little baby moon out of it and spent a few nights in Blowing Rock. A very generous friend allowed us to stay in their magnificent cabin and Gabe and I enjoyed a peaceful week in the mountains.
I'll let the pictures paint the picture...

Gabe and I spent a day at the spa...he got a massage and I got a mani/pedi. But the whole day was spent in these plush robes. I don't relax very well but this day was a real treat! We actually went on a hike with the staff and then went back and vegg'ed!

Game night!

Laying by the lake

We ate lots of good food, enjoyed nature, and enjoyed being away just the two of us before Finn arrives!
