*I (barely) survived last week and so of course this post is laaaaate. It was supposed to go up last Thursday. Forgive me?
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: This week, our floors were installed in the new house. I was a WRECK bouncing back and forth between work, our apartment, practice and the new house. One day, I even pulled the car into the garage and slept in the passenger seat for an hour while the flooring guys hammered away inside. Yeah, I was desperate.
The Science: Baby Center recap – 26 weeks. Her ears are growing more sensitive and she may be able to notice bits of conversation between Hubs and I. This is totally awesome timing because we were both so strung out that we snapped at each other almost daily. I promise we really do love each other, Baby!
Body morphing: Weight gain is who knows because I packed the scale and can’t find it. But, my bump is big and my back rolls have joined the party, which looks hot under tight shirts. Meow.
Baby Bug moves and moves and moves, especially when I’m *not* moving. Every night when I lay down to sleep, she’s up and grooving for attention. I’m certain she’s doing triple toe loops on my uterus. Hopefully she switches that schedule around when she’s “on the outside”.
Sexy stuff! My pee stinks, which is fun.
Food drama: I had a doctor’s appointment (which I almost fell asleep for while in the waiting room) and she asked if I’ve had any heartburn. I was all like “No way, I eat everything!”. I stumbled out of her office and now I have heartburn daily. Dangit.
Exercising? A few concerned folks mentioned I might want to hold off on running, especially outside. In fact, I got this sweet note from my old manager:
“I held my breath for a bit after reading that you “fell” on ice or snow, so just in case you didn’t know, falling on anything is bad news AND running (again), exposes your now somewhat out of balance body to more of the same. How about holding off on running until you’re getting your body back in shape “after” the baby is born?”
It was crazy timing because that very morning, I was running with Callie and Clara when I tripped over a sprinkler head, crashed to the ground and HIT MY FACE ON THE CONCRETE. My face! I told you last week was rough for me. I scuffed up my hands too, but thankfully my baby belly was okay. I’ve only run once since “the fall” and plan to switch to walking when I get my routine back in order.
To Dos: Oh you know, move to the new house officially and get my life together because I feel like a disorganized lunatic. Wish me luck.
And randomly: My MIL bought our crib and mattress (from Ikea) and Hubs put it together already (plus, a super sneak peek of house progress) :
Our whiddle baybee is going to sleep there. Awww, shucks.
THEN, we got a baby care package from our family in Minnesota. My Moby wrap, yessss!!!
It was so darn sweet that I got misty-eyed. I big puffy hear them.
That wraps things up (teehee) for this week. I mean, last week. Oh, you know what I mean, right?
P.S. Our floors look beautiful!!! Pictures coming one day, pinky swear.
