What I have been up too lately.

I have been working in Saratoga Springs,  New York for the last few months on a large project on the Stewarts Shops factory. The job is just about finished up, and Kayla couldn't be happier because of have been gone for at least 3 to 4 days a week from home. My Co-worker and I have worked in Rain, Sleet, Snow, 80 degree days and -30 degree days. Its been a wild ride, and I learned a whole bunch of new skills in my trade.
I am taking the video. 

What the pipes would look like if they weren't insulated.

Inside a completely burned out charred part of the Stewarts Factory. This was a seriously sketchy place.

Not cold at all in the giant  industrial freezer thats as big as a Costco's Store.

I have also been up to normal stuff like baking awesome brownie pies with a marshmallow and chocolate topping . Putting a crib together, which was quite easy. I also bought an American made Gun Belt.

Love there slogan.

I am sure I did lots of other stuff, but these were things that popped out in my head and that I had pictures of.

Week 27 Bumpdate

Sorry for missing last several weeks. Dan and I received some non baby news that threw our world off kilter for a little while. I hate to be all mysterious and what not but we will share that news at a later date. 
"Happy Third Trimester"

How Far Along: 27 Weeks 
Due Date: 7.7.14
Gender: BOY!
Names: Liam Mason 
Movement:  Liam seems to be getting more and more active as the weeks pass. I have started to feel him squirming around in there while at work and more while at home.

Size:  Cauliflower
Weight Gain: I am back at my pre pregnancy weight. I now hover at 242lbs.

Maternity Clothes: I can completely still wear my own shirts as long as they have some stretch to them (otherwise the feel to confining, good-bye work shirts hello maternity tops!). But I have basically moved into my maternity jeans and leggings.
Symptoms: I have a slight tightening in around my belly button which seems to be a normal pregnancy thing. If I don't sleep with my snoogle I have sore hips and back. Oh and having to visit the bathroom ALL the time!

Cravings: Nothing 
Sleep: It is taking me a little longer to fall back to sleep after I get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom visit.  I also am finding that I want to sleep in more and more in the morning.
Stretch Marks: Already had them 
My Overall Health:  I feel perfectly fine! I had to took the 3 Hour glucose test Monday March 24th.  This is a stressful test for us because there is a LARGE family history on my side of diabetes!

What I miss: Sleeping like the dead and not having to get up in the middle of the night several times to visit the bathroom.  Tying my own shoes from a standing position.

Wedding Rings On or Off?:  On and loose.

Belly Button: In

 Best Moment:  
Feeling Liam MOVE! 
 Dan got to feel Liam move for the first time!  
I passed my 3 hour Glucose Tolerance Test!  
 We have reached the 3rd Trimester! 90ish days to go.....
