Baby Size: The size of an avocado; the length of mascara
Countdown to Baby: 24 weeks
Symptoms: Nose bleeds (nothing severe), sleeping is getting a little interesting
Cravings: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, ice cream, and MY FAVORITE – these…
Weight Gain: Up 6 lbs. – quite a little jump this week! (I blame the aforementioned cravings!)
Related Purchases: Um…our crib…HELLO!
Ours is in “snowdrift” – a slightly off white
Fear of the Week: Wondering if that was the baby moving orrrr some sort of [less than glamourous] gas bubble. I guess that’s more of a “Wonder” of the Week versus a “Fear.” A fear is thinking about traveling to NY…900 miles away from home…at 31 weeks pregnant! AND I’m not too excited about waiting another 4 weeks for my next appointment.
Relief of the Week: Having seen our little sweet pea (no, that’s not the “official” nickname…there still isn’t one) yesterday and having heard the heartbeat – 150 beats per minute. ♥
Randomness: I’ve started doing this thing that I’ve read about…you may have heard of it…it’s called F-L-O-S-S-I-N-G. I never used to floss, ever. I mean, I admit that the occasional piece of broccoli may have forced me to break this rule. Otherwise, me + flossing = n.e.v.e.r. (Call me Jessica Simpson.) UNTIL I read that poorly taken care of gums (aka – mine 10 days ago) can increase the chance of preterm labor. I am now a committed flossing, mouth-washing, brushing gal. BIG change. Scott’s a fan.
Scott’s Quote of the Week: Scott wasn’t funny this week. He’s apparently on an every other week schedule. Oh well!
LIFE IS GOOD!!!
p.s. Scott’s mom’s in town, so we have been busy, busy. Updates on life (other than this bump) soon!
p.s.s. Happy birthday yesterday, Gram – can’t wait to see you soon!!! xoxo
