I hope everyone had a wonderful and family filled Easter weekend! We made the trek out to Hermosa Beach to my aunt's house and was able to take this weeks bumpdate the the pier! This is one of my favorite shots to date!!!
What's baby up to this week? She is the size of an butternut sqash, measuring over 15" long and weighs two and a half pounds. Hr muscles and lungs are continuing to mature and her head is growing bigger to accommodate the developing brain.
What's been going on with mom? Feeling back to pre-pregnancy. Although the bump just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Sleep has been amazing because of the boppy pillow (never thought I'd say that) except when the hubby decides to adjust it to cuddle with me. I have managed to sleep through the night which hasn't happened in a very long time. I had a cankle moment at work. I wore heels one day and looked down and saw that one foot was really swollen and the other was mildly swollen. I pounded the water for the next couple of days and haven't seen a re-occurrence. Hoping to stave off this symptom for a bit. Tried working out more and going for walks. Man I am out of shape! The emotions have come down a little and I can only associate that with getting better sleep!
Symptoms: Heartburn, per usual. Swollen feet (for two days.) Acne has just been rearing its ugly head a lot....I'm trying a new face wash to help combat this problem.
Yummy/Icky: Fresh fruit sounds good all the time and salads....probably because we are in spring finally.
Clothing: Mostly maternity. Not trying to be a hero and squeezing into uncomfortable clothes anymore. If it fits, it fits.
Movement: She seems to be more active each day. She decided to push into my navel and make me super uncomfortable. Walking, pushing did nothing until she re-adjusted. She loves to move around, but not necessarily kick and punch.....please stay out of the ribs little lady!
Belly Button In/Out: Shallow!
Wedding Rings On/Off: On
Best Moment this Week: Getting our shower invite! I am so excited to see all my family!! After perusing many online sites, and talking my mom out of making them....because I could just imagine her killing herself over making them...they would have been amazing, but too much work. We found these adorable invites from Tiny Prints!
Looking forward to: Seeing our baby girl at our ultrasound this afternoon!! YAY!
