Happy Father's Day

I forgot to take a picture of these two during the day, so in Brendan's room I go as Rob is reading to him before bed.   Neither of them could understand why I was interrupting story time nor did they understand the importance of having a Father's day picture but one day they will appreciate it...maybe!  :)   These two truly are two peas in a pod and best friends!  No matter how long of a day Rob has had or whether or not he got any sleep, as soon as he gets home, he is ready to play with Brendan.  He always puts his family first and works so hard  so he can provide a good life for Brendan.  Rob is the most amazing man and we so thankful for him! 

28/29 weeks!!!!!

I am officially in my third trimester!!!!  CRAZY!!!!  It seems like I just hit 20 weeks and now I am almost to 30!!!  We have finally started changing the playroom into the nursery and Rob says painting day(s) will be next Thursday and Friday.  Brendan has done surprisingly well with the playroom being changed into a far! 

 It is hard to believe we will be a family of 4 soon...actually 6, including our two 4 legged babies!!  Our world has truly revolved around Brendan for the last 3 1/2 years, it is hard to believe that someone else is coming into the picture.  Our house is filled with trains, trucks, and all things boy so it is exciting to bring baby things back in!  We FINALLY decided on a name.  Baby Bernth #2 will be named Jack Steven Bernth.  Although he does have a name now, he is still referred to as Skippy most of the time and I feel quite certain that will be the only name Brendan will use for his brother.  :)   

I am going to the Dr. every 2 weeks now and last week was my first appt. of the third trimester!!  Everything is going well and I am so thankful!  I had been having Braxton Hicks contractions lately and they were becoming much more frequent and much more painful but she did u/s  and everything is just as it should be, so that was great news.

28 week picture!!!

29 weeks!!! 

Weight Gain: 22 pounds


Size of Baby-the size of an acorn squash.  15.2-16.7 in. and 2.5-3.8 lbs....although I feel like I am carrying a 22 pound baby in there!!!  ;)

Favorite clothing-at home, Rob's shirts and my maternity PJ pants!!!

Sleep-not sleeping too well. 

Movement-baby Jack is VERY active!!!  I love to watch my belly move!

Biggest Difference Between Pregnancies-I don't remember feeling uncomfortable as soon.  Also, never had heartburn or sciatica with Brendan.  Dr. said with each pregnancy you get more uncomfortable and have more aches and pains since body/hips have already been stretched before.

What do I miss-consistant sleep

Symptoms-so sleepy, Braxton Hicks, heartburn, and my giant belly!  :)
