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: All’s good in pregnancy hood!
Btw, the leggings are LC Conrad (from Kohls) and I love them. They fit me much better than the pair I wore in my last baby bump update. I wish I had them in a couple colors! The sweater is new from Forever21 (only $12!) that I’m hoping to get good wear out of it this winter before I get too big.
The Science: Baby Center recap – 25 weeks. She has hair and is the size of a rutabaga. I have no idea what that even means!!
Body morphing: Weight gain is 10 lbs. Technically, I didn’t gain any weight this week but my body certainly looks more pregnant bump-wise and I’m getting squishier everywhere else. Also, I’m busting out of my bras (har har) but I’m too cheap to buy any new ones for now.
Bug moves all of the time, especially when I lay down to sleep. Instead of just flutters and kicks, I can actually feel her little body pressed up against my skin. I can’t tell if it’s a shoulder or rump or head, but I like to pat it and see if she reacts to me. It’s SO CUTE.
Sexy stuff! So, I had two sneezing “accidents” this week. Thankfully, I was at home and could do a quick underwear change. I may have to get some panty liners to protect myself just in case it happens in public or at work. Sexy, huh?
I’m still getting up in the middle of the night to pee and my dreams are wacky, so sleep still isn’t a deep slumber for me. Oh, and leg cramps. I had them in both legs last night which is so uncool.
Lastly, I’m getting to the size where my lower back is starting to hurt. I think it’s also because I’m standing on my feet at work and have been bailing on my morning runs (which strengthens all of that) so it’s not a surprise that this new pain showed up.
Food drama: None, I’m lucky!
Exercising? I still haven’t run. It’s been a looong time. I should go on my own but I don’t like to run by myself. Pre-season track starts up next week and my running buddy comes back from vacation, so I’m hoping to get back into it.
I took a pretty bad fall on the ice last weekend, just taking our trash out. My elbow and hand are banged up and my butt is sore. Worst of all, it scared me so terribly that when I saw Hubs, I started to cry – what if I had hurt baby girl!?
To Dos: The nursery is REpainted! We used “Ashes” by Behr in both the nursery and den. I just have to do some touchups and then I’ll show you pictures!
And randomly: I snagged three maternity sweaters on clearance from Target! They are all the same style, just in black, cream and gray. I figured for $12 a pop, they’ll be a nice staple to build around and spice up with belts, scarves and jewelry. Target, oh how I heart you so.
