ten on ten {july 2014} & waiting for baby

What we have been up to: I actually managed to remember that it was the tenth on Thursday and I took my pictures happily for 10 on 10 all day. I have been pretty miserable. I’m very thankful that a sweet baby boy is growing in my body but pregnancy is very hard on my me and this 3rd one has been no exception. Between the gestational diabetes, insomnia and PUPPP {a really itchy and painful pregnancy rash} I’m officially over it. My days are mostly spent trying to survive and deal with the fatigue, aches, pains and itches {as well as trying to eat every 3 hours, test my blood sugar and drink plenty of water}. My sweet kids are having to be pretty independent these days. Paige is in love with listening to The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe and Grant is quite the Lego-maniac {and they are fighting a lot…but with mommy so “out of commission” I guess I don’t blame them}. The days are drawing closer to baby’s due date and I cannot wait to meet him! We still don’t have a name for him but we are hopeful that we will land on one soon enough!

Here are a few of the things I’ve watched, read, shopped for & listened to while spending my days resting. I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired {and entertained} me!

1. online shopping {for Baby & Mommy}: Zulily/Amazon {prime}/Target.com

2. reading & drinking: The Nesting Place/McDonald’s diet Sweet Tea {the only product I have found that does not taste like a diet drink}

3. nesting {setting up my favorite baby products}: Swing Mamaroo¬† 4moms/Baby Co-sleeper Arm’s Reach/Blankets & Bedding Aden & Anais

4. dealing with my PUPPP rash: Coconut Oil/Pine Tar Soap {smells like a campfire but really helps with the itching}

5. watching lots of TV {especially in the middle of the night when dealing with my insomnia}: Property Brothers/Fixer Upper on HGTV & Magnolia Homes /Tree House Masters on Animal Planet/Food Network {Guy’s Grocery Games, Food Network Star, Cutthroat Kitchen}

6. listening to a few of my favorite Pandora stations: Nashville {music from the TV show}/Waiting Here for You {no pun intended, I just love this song and Christy Nockels}
