Week 23 and 24

Hey guys! I missed a week so I have decided to wrap them into one post. Things have been pretty hectic since coming home from St.  Lucia and getting ready for Christmas!

We decided that we wanted to do a 3D ultrasound to give the photos to our families at Christmas. Going to the ultrasound was super exciting. It started off amazing! We saw the little peanut and he/she smiled and it was incredible. immediately after the peanut decided to hide out in a little nook that it has found in there. Once in that nook they can not be seen at all. The baby stayed there for the rest of the session. No matter what we tried, positions and stretches the baby did not come out! We made an appointment to go back the following week. We went back the next week and lo and behold the little one hid for the whole entire session. Back to the drawing board on Christmas gifts for the grandparents! Who knew the little one could be so stubborn in the womb, I think we are in for it in a few months.

Exercise has remained on the daily agenda. I have lost a lot of my strength and can admit I have not really been giving my 100% when I am at the gym. I thought it over and decided to go back to planning my workouts for the week in advance. Here is the workout plan that I have come up with:

5 Day pregnancy workout

I am hoping that this will keep me occupied over the next week. We will be in Texas for the holidays so I do not know how much exercise I will get in daily but I will try to fit something in!

I have had the honor of being able to try out Seraphine Maternity for review. This would be the famous Kate Middleton front knot maternity dress. Updated to a 3/4 length sleeve for the holidays. Take a look at my full review. Seraphine Maternity Review. I am in love with this dress and can not wait to wear it at over the holidays.

We headed over to Rockefeller Center, with the intention of watching the tree lighting. Once arriving there and being trapped in the crowd we realized that it was not for us. We went home to watch it on tv, so much better than standing in that crowd for 4 hours! We did manage to sneak in a picture or two.

I have to give a shout out to Big City Moms. Once again we attended a Big City Moms event and it was just as amazing as the Biggest Baby Shower. This time we had the pleasure of going to the Expectant Parent Dinner over at Kidville UES. What a great night! Jon was a little apprehensive since he ended up being the only Dad there but had an amazing time. One of the presenters was Daddy Scrubs and Daddy of the year was 90210’s Ian Ziering. He shared with us his experience in becoming a Dad and being in the delivery room. Ian was very entertaining and I think made the night for Jon. Being the only Dad there Jon received the Daddy Diaper bag. Which was an awesome Camo print back pack!

Ian really helped in making Jon feel a part of things. As an expectant Dad sometimes they feel left out and I am so glad that I have been able to include my husband in everything. I also feel blessed to have a man in my life that wants to be involved in every step of this amazing journey. Other than the back pack we won a joovy hi-lo high chair in the raffle! We love the new high chair and it is already assembled and ready for the little one to try out.

Now we are still getting ready for the holidays and they are quickly approaching us. The snow this weekend was beautiful and helped to get me inspired for Christmas. We spent out snowy afternoon looking at strollers. We are thinking of getting a Stokke Xplory. Do any of your moms out there have this stroller? I would love to hear some feedback on it. We also looked for cribs. This is more of a difficult decisions since we will still be in our tiny nyc 1 bedroom when the little one makes its arrival. We are considering the Stokke Sleepi, if any of you have one please let me know if you like it. Decisions, decisions.
