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 is our first full week living at our new house. Every day feels better than the last and starting my mornings with the quiet sun beaming through our windows shrouded by shoddy trim makes me very happy. Home feels good. As far as the pregnancy, I’m exhausted but you knew that already.
Isn’t this sweater cute? My MIL picked out three pieces of maternity wear for me and I was SO EXCITED. She bought me this gray sweater (you know how I love me some gray) and a super soft red tunic sweater that will be perfect as my belly grows. Best of all, she got me a pair of black maternity pants! I’m not wearing them in this pic only because I’ve worn them every day since they showed up in the mail and they are finally in the wash. Betsy, you are so wonderful!
Here is an up close shot of the BUMP. *pat pat*
The Science: Baby Center recap – 28 weeks. She’s got eyelashes! Hubs has beautiful lashes so maybe she’ll have those same ones to bat at him with (which I suspect will render him goofy and completely useless when she does).
She’s busy in there and feeling her movement never gets old. I big puffy heart this time with her.
Body morphing: Weight gain is hard to say. I weighed myself this morning and it claims I actually lost two pounds. I was alarmed at first, but ever since moving to our new house, the scale seems just off. I’m not worrying about the number because my bump is clearly changing drastically now that I’m in the third trimester. My belly button is stretched tiiiight!
Sexy stuff! Just apologizing now and if you’re eating lunch, you might want to swing by at another time. I had a bit of a scare yesterday, in the poop department. Hubs frantically Googled while I gawked in horror. Turns out, it’s somewhat common for…”things to get messy” during pregnancy. Moral of this terribly story: I need to eat more fiber and drink more water.
I had another bought of leg cramps (my worst yet) and three days later, my calves are still tender! Man, those hurt like the dickens!
I also waddle now and it’s simultaneously humiliating and kinda cute.
Food drama: My heartburn has subsided and I think it’s mostly because I’m eating less at a time. That helps a ton. No complaints! Drinking enough water is still an issue, unfortunately.
Exercising? Getting my shoes on is workout these days and I’ve been too lazy for much else.
To Dos: We signed up for a birthing and breastfeeding class through the local hospital! I also have to take the glucose test soon (like yesterday). That’ll be loads of fun.
And randomly: MamaP comes to Colorado this weekend!
