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: I’m happy and relaxed and loving my baby belly. *sigh* Life is good, you know?
The Science: Baby Center recap – 31 weeks. She’s moving A LOT and she is strong. She pushes and stretches and ninja kicks me. I can feel her squeezing and reaching out to the sides of my belly! It’s the best feeling ever, even at 4.30am. I LOVE THIS TIME WITH HER.
Body morphing: Weight gain is 15 lbs. Last time I worked at my retail job, I had to lean over and pick something up off the floor. Instead of bending over, I have to slide one leg out behind me and squat down…and in doing so I tripped one of the other associates! Whoopsies! #bigbellydangers
Sexy stuff! My back has been hurting if I’m sitting in a chair too long but I’m feeling great otherwise.
Food drama: None, especially when I keep my dinners very small. It helps BIG TIME to keep any food or water from sloshing back up when I lay down to sleep.
Exercising? What is this nonsense called exercise?
To Dos: I haven’t been DIYing this week because it’s been too chilly to paint outside, but Hubs and I made tons of progress at our house last weekend. We sorted and filed paperwork, put away boxes and cleaned. Before the madness was weighing so heavily on me, but now the house feels like home.
We didn’t pick out a carseat yet…we need to get on that.
And randomly: We had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and got to see Baby on the ultrasound. They said she’s “petite” but still in the healthy range for weight. Hubs and I were both small babies so they told us not to be concerned.
And she has lots of hair! Cauuuuuuute!
I snatched up a nursing bra on clearance at Target this week. I sure hope it fits in a few months. I plan to pick up a few nursing tanks and loads of lady business pads too on my next trip out. Might as well stock up now when I have the time, right?
On that note, happy Valentine’s Day?
