Hello Readers --
Well... after writing in this blog for the past 10 years, I've decided to create a new blog... It is called -- "The Thompson Take" and is located at www.thethompsontake.blogspot.com. One caveat -- it is private ... so, if you would like to read it, please please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you as a reader or leave a comment below with your e-mail address and I will add you!
Oh, and LGT made his debut last Wed, Feb. 18 at 2:48 pm... Couldn't be happier! There will be more details about him on the private blog!

Yesterday, I entered the 31st week of my pregnancy...which means only 9 more weeks till my due date. I'm told the next 9 weeks will go by quickly... Before the recap of the 31st week... Below are photographs from weeks 25 - 30.
|26 Weeks (at my sister's wedding!)|
|28 Weeks (at my work bathroom)|
Fruit/Veggie comparison: Pineapple .. according to The Bump
Maternity Clothes: All maternity... couple of my maternity tops are starting to not fit....
Sleep: Leg cramps have improved, but I am waking up at least once in the middle of the night, fun!
Best moment(s) of this week: Nothing beats feeling Logan move... at this point that is.
Miss anything: Still missing the occasional glass of wine, especially during holiday party season.
Food cravings: Any type of pastry.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Last weekend we had BBQ and the smell of sausage made me queasy...
Have you started to show yet: For sure. There is not doubt I am pregnant.
Labor signs: A couple of braxton hicks here and there.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time, though I am getting a little irritable at night, mostly because I am uncomfortable at that point.
Looking forward to: My doc appt on Monday...and spending the Christmas holiday with my family!
Thoughts: Can't believe Logan's due date is 9 weeks away. 2015 always seemed so far away and now it is in 2 weeks.

How far along: 25 Weeks
Fruit/Veggie comparison: Baby is the size of a cauliflower! (according to The Bump)
Maternity Clothes: Embracing the maternity tops (see above) and leggings
Sleep: Pretty good, but have started to have bad leg cramps
Best moment(s) of this week: Feeling constant movement from Logan
Miss anything: Wine
Food cravings: Sweets, sweets and more sweets.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing too bad at the moment, my appetite is still large and in charge
Have you started to show yet: Yes! The last two weeks Logan has "popped" or whatever that's supposed to mean.
Labor signs: None
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy though I did notice the tiredness is returning, not sure if that's a product of getting closer to the 3rd trimester, or that I'm not sleeping enough. I also notice my hormones make me a little impatient and some of my pet peeves seem to be amplified (aka loud chewing).
Looking forward to: My little sister's wedding this coming weekend!!!
Thoughts: I had my glucose screening test this week, and didn't get a call from my doc, which I assume means all is well! It wasn't terrible, tasted like flat orange sugary soda. I still get a little teary watching commercials involving babies.

It's been a busy month (well month(s) in general)... my little sister is getting married next week, and it's otherwise been filled with a bridal shower, bachelorette party, baby shower for a dear friend, my niece's birthday, and a trip to Santa Fe (not to mention the three trips I took for work this month -- I am now an "A List" member for Southwest all due to my travel the last two months for work).
I meant to do a little post about how I was feeling the 23rd and now the 24th week, but instead, you'll get some photographs... I promise a 25th week post (which is this Saturday), with full details of how I am feeling at this moment...Without further ado -
|23 Weeks (taken before my dear friend Laura's baby sprinkle)|
Baby was the size of a grapefruit according to www.thebump.com

Baby is the size of a Cantaloupe according to www.thebump.com

Well -- I'm not sure if anyone reads this anymore -- but I have some exciting news to share!
Patrick and I are PREGNANT!
We are expecting either a boy or girl in late Feb. 2015! We are so excited and cannot wait to meet our new little nugget.
With that being said -- I am going to try to now use this blog to keep a fun record of my pregnancy and marriage, and keep my friends and family updated on this new path in our lives.
So -- I am making this blog private. If you would like to continue reading my blog -- please let me know so I can add you to the list. Shoot me an email at email@example.com with your name and email and I'll add you to the list.
I plan to go private in a week or so.

Well, it's been well over 8 months since I last posted... What can I say other than the usual diatribe .... life got in the way ... work was busy ... life ... But in all actuality, I forgot about posting. Which, probably means most of my readers (all 10 of you) probably forgot about reading my blog, and that's okay! Hopefully I can snag some more readers as I pick it back up... Be on the lookout for another few posts about my honeymoon, it really was the best!
Until then... I promise another post before January.
