Baby Bump Update

*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.

Pay no mind to my stupid stance. Instead, things to note, my $12.48 Target maternity sweater and a sample of our new floors!

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.

  1. i can’t see you with back rolls. Ha! You’ll have to show mamap. I love that you are getting presents in the mail. The crib is darling. The house is grand. I am excited about it all. Levi is putting in my floor this weekend. Love to you all. Mamap

    • I’ll show them to you when you come, the new back rolls are “cute”! Glad to hear Levi is doing your floors – hooray! I bet it looks awesome!

  2. I hope that she changes her schedule once she was born! We were not so lucky – our sweet daughter became crazy active every night at 9:45 p.m. and the trend has continued. Sleep is overrated, right? Glad you are ok after your fall and I hope that this week is going better for you!

    • Oh dear! I have a feeling this little one may follow in Hadley’s footsteps! This week is much tamer, thankfully. I needed it! Miss you, friend!

  3. Email me your address and I will send you awesome prenatal yoga that will keep you in awesome shape for labor and you will *barely* miss the runs. :)

  4. Don’t worry, I’ll be your walking buddy. We’ll go nice and slow and there will be no falling.

    I think the Baby Bug is just excited we are finally in our new house and settling down. Now that she can hear us talking about the new floors, she can’t wait to see them!

  5. Uf duh. Glad you survived the last couple weeks!! Moving and baby growing are an exhausting combination! :) glad you are fitting some nap time in, even if it is in the car!!

  7. I’m glad that you, your lovely face & your sweet little bug are Ok! I can’t believe hectic things have been lately – that’s enough to make someone who’s not growing a baby exhausted – Uf-Daa! I hope that things slow down & you can get some extra naps & rest soon.
    I read somewhere that apple cider vinegar can help with heartburn as well as be really good for you (antioxidants, etc). Otherwise I heart a little baking soda in warm water to help cool the dragon in one’s tummy.
    Big HUGS to you!!

  9. My wife and love your floors. Are you still pleased with the product? We would love to know your opinion. They look great!

    • Chase, we love them! They are holding up great and the texture is really beautiful. I’m so glad we went with that instead of a super glossy finish.
