Weight Gain | I haven’t weighed myself yet, but I’m not sure which is growing most, my belly or my “nursing fat reserve” aka my love handles. lol.
Symptoms | Basically just peeing alllll the time and looking large and in charge. I look down and think “oh my belly isn’t *that* big” and then I see a full body picture of myself and it’s like “whoa boy.”
I’ve also had a few braxton hicks from time to time. Water and/or going to the bathroom always make them let up. You just keep doin your thing, uterus.
Cravings | Still broccoli and beef! Both things sound SO good to me. I could eat a cheeseburger every day and sometimes I eat so much broccoli in one sitting it shocks me.
Which, the beef thing is funny, because I ate a burger almost every day with Abigail too. Apparently beef is a major pregnancy thing.
Size Of Baby |
Head of cauliflower or a rutabaga(which I’ll confess I have never eaten- and also didn’t know how to spell)
14 inches and 2ish lbs
Movement | Always. Girl is moving all the time. I can feel her even when I’m busy doing something else and there have been a few times when my Mom or Jim can see her through my clothes having a dance party.
Sleep | Great! I wake up and roll over a lot because I’m working hard at staying on my side and she is always moving when I do. Little girl, when do you sleep? But I’ve been getting plenty of rest and staying comfortable.
Clothing | I ran into my first clothing “issue” this week in Phoenix and California because of the warm weather. I’ve been wearing all of my things and doing great at home in the COLD of Missouri, but with the warm weather I realized I don’t have any shorts or skirts to wear! I had plenty of tops that were versatile and worked, but I was definitely warm in my jeans. Before all is said and done it’ll be time to invest in a few maxi dresses and lightweight skirts and shorts!
Purchases | While at Disneyland this week we got Mabel an adorable Minnie Mouse “Baby’s First Christmas” ornament. I thought it would be a sweet reminder of her first “trip” to Disney and a fun thing to hang on our tree with a little six month old this year!
Nursery | While we’ve been gone Daddy has been hard at work! I don’t have any pictures yet, but rumor has it that her room has been primed and painted and all of the wood and hardware for her closet have been purchased as well. Eep! I can’t wait to get home and get to hanging things on her walls and the rug rolled out. Her room is finally starting to come together! Yay!
Best Part Of The Week | Letting my Mom get to feel her for the first time and laying out in the sun a few days in Phoenix. Mabel loved it(I can tell, because, I’m her Mom) and I’m hoping the UV rays help me look instantly skinny and Gisele style pregnant.
Can’t Wait For | Well, getting home and opening up all of my goodies that have come in the mail since I’ve been gone! And actually, getting my glucose tolerance test done and over with next week. It will be great to have that milestone taken care of!
