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: We officially moved into our new house this week! It was a snappy 5 degrees outside. Ironically, we moved from MN to CO on the hottest day of the year – remember that awesomeness, friends? Apparently, we have a real knack for picking horrible weather for moving. At least these guys got paid to move our stuff…our poor friends just got pizza, generic Hyvee soda and probably a hernia.
The day after we moved, Hubs had to scoot off to speak at a conference and so we had to wait until today for our “shoot”. Look how big my belly got!
The Science: Baby Center recap – 27 weeks. Bug is almost two pounds and thinking. I hope she inherited Hub’s big brain!
Also, this explains my recent leg cramps: Along with an aching back, for example, you may find that your leg muscles cramp up now and then. They’re carrying extra weight, after all, and your expanding uterus is putting pressure on the veins that return blood from your legs to your heart as well as on the nerves leading from your trunk to your legs.
Body morphing: Weight gain is 11.5lbs. My bump is getting exponentially bigger each day, holy cow!
Sexy stuff! I’m tired, so tired. And I look it. The doc last week told me to drink more water to help with my fatigue but seriously anytime I drink anything, it goes straight through. I have no time for this nonsense!
Food drama: Truthfully, I’ve been eating terribly this last few weeks (worse than normal) and I feel insanely guilty about it. Also, more heartburn. I’m trying to do better, now that my life is returning to a new normal each day.
Exercising? I join the track kids for core/abs at the end of their workouts and that’s pretty much it. I also cleaned our apartment so furiously that I almost upchucked my dinner. I’m counting it as cardio! It’s been another long week.
To Dos: Find stuff. I can’t find anything in the new house except for my waffle maker (which isn’t as bad as it seems).
And randomly: We got another box of baby goodies! Spoiled rotten, we are. Seriously. My friend Connie advised me to register for a few sets of crib sheets so you always have a spare on hand – now we are set with three! Thank you, dear Emily!!!
Plus, another book to read to my little sweetie pumpkin pie. I can’t wait for that…*heart melts*.
