Ok so I guess my posts are either Mommy Monday or Hump Day Bumpdates! Sometimes I cannot find the energy (after creating the chalkboard, getting myself ready, traipsing through and finding the shot, taking the shot) to edit the photo's and write the post on Sundays. Please forgive me!
What's baby up to this week? She is the size of an eggplant, measuring 14.8" long and weighs two and a quarter pounds. She can blink her eyes and she has eyelashes! Her eyesight is developing and she may be able to see light that filters in through my womb.
What's been going on with mom? Pretty decent, although my emotions are getting the better of me. Sleep has sucked and my lower back has been killing me for weeks (due to an old siatica injury and of course baby girl) so I broke down and bought the maternity pillow. I have only used it a couple of nights, but so far much better! The back doesn't cramp on me anymore! I guess a just overall feeling of tiredness is coming over me. I walked more last week. We took the pups on several walks and I tried to eat better. More salads, and veggies and fruit were on the menu.
Symptoms: Heartburn (I'm afraid that this one is here for the long haul.) Restless sleep, but getting better, and extremely emotional. Shortness of breath seems to be a something that is here to stay too.
Yummy/Icky: It's watermelon season again and I had the hubby go and get one. Even though it wasn't completely ripe it still tasted amazing! I also bought pre-cut for lunch too.....just sounded SO GOOD!
Clothing: Mostly maternity. Trying to utilize as much pre-pregnancy as I can. At least half of my v-necks still fit! :-)
Movement: Definitely feeling an increase in movement, which is about the time when my doctor said I would. We also have been able to watch her dance parties as they happen which is the coolest thing! Just love feeling her wiggle around!
Belly Button In/Out: In, but getting really shallow! I stood in front of the mirror the other day and it was really small! Please be kind to my old naval ring scar little one!
Wedding Rings On/Off: On
Best Moment this Week: Finishing our registries! YAY! Such a weight has been lifted! Also seeing our shower invites! I'm so excited!
Looking forward to: Our 28 week ultrasound. Anytime we get to see her is a great thing!
