Baby Size: The size of a grapefruit or a large onion (apparently my uterus is the size of a cantaloupe…? too much?)
Countdown to Baby: 23 weeks
Symptoms: “Floaters” in the periphery of my eyes at night (yes, I’m 90), some spider veins are forming (greaaaat), the milk-makers are trying to win some sort of BIG (no pun intended) contest, and intense lower back pain
Cravings: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans, and all other expensive candy
Weight Gain: Still up 6 lbs. – however I do not trust my scale and am pretty sure my accuracy on this stat will only be reliable on Dr. appointment weeks. I personally enjoy the inaccuracy – since it’s usually a lower number – so carry on you crappy scale you!
Related Purchases: A friend sent me this for the belly…
Thanks, Nicole! xo
AND I bought a new bra – thank heavens. Girlfriend’s up a number size AND a cup size. Holy milk-makers, batman. I am in trouble. (Yes, I shared that TMI info with the world – that just happened.) No wonder my back hurts!
Fear of the Week: I’m waiting too long to get shopping for this little one. We have a few outfits for the babe (gifts from friends), a piggy bank, a couple of bibs, 2 books, and a crib. YIKES!
Relief of the Week: This new bra has been a godsend. Also, I am nearing the halfway point. EXCITING!
Randomness: I am über emotional. We went to Brewvival this weekend (yes, a beer festival..I know) and I had already laughed and cried before getting through the entrance. FOR.NO.REASON. Seriously – I had no clue why. No worries, though. I travel with tissues! If you catch me crying – I promise – it’s not you…it’s me! ALSO, my eye sight has gotten 3 prescriptions worse in a one year. Three. It is common for pregnancy to make your eye sight worse. Total mind blow!
Scott’s Quote of the Week: “Three strollers…you really think we’re gonna need THREE STROLLERS?” Haha babe, deep breaths!!!
Who else thinks I look ginormous?!
p.s. Please notice the “baby” tab that has been added to the top of this page. That is where you can find the entire collection of baby-related posts (which seem to be all I get around to writing these days!).
