Now that it’s finally official – I’m growing a human – I’m sure you can’t wait to be inundated with all things baby. Should we let the nonsense and self-indulgence begin?
Main scoop: For the second week in a row, we neglected to take our Thursday bump picture, doh! Here’s a pic from Friday though.
I feel good, except for one really emotional day. I don’t know if it was the pregnancy or the new house or the holidays or my wacky work schedule, but my brain was acting sad and overwhelmed.
The Science: Baby Center recap – 24 weeks. She has taste buds! Get those primed baby girl, your Dad’s a great cook! It also says I should *not* be getting up on ladders but I’ve been on about a billion of them between house stuff and my retail job. Yikes.
Body morphing: Weight gain is 10 lbs. I’m still rotating between my new leggings, yoga pants and the Old Navy jeans, mostly because I haven’t found a good pair of maternity ones yet. Other than that, I’m peeing CONSTANTLY. I take one sip of anything and then I’m trucking it to the nearest restroom. We have to plan our day around it. Also, I feel her really squirm when I sit down (like in the car) because she doesn’t like me folded up – I’m “all up in her grill” apparently.
Sexy stuff! Hubs noticed new veins in my jaw that weren’t there before. Awesomesauce.
Food drama: No drama still! I’m eating way too much sugar though, the holidays make me especially naughty.
Exercising? My last run was a week ago. Callie is home for the holidays and I’ve been sleeping in. My retail job keeps me on my feet and then we’ve been working at the new house in the evenings. It’s not official cardio but meh, I’m moving so I’m counting it.
To Dos: As far as baby To Do progress, the good news is that we painted the nursery on Christmas Day!
The bad news is that it’s a watery toothpaste color when I was hoping for a moody gray. Damn, back to the drawing board.
And randomly: We received a super thoughtful gift from our realtor Stan (a new dad himself) – these two baby books and a Home Depot gift card:
Isn’t that sweet?
