Baby Size: About the length of one of those annoying recorders that you played in middle school.
Hot cross buns!
Countdown to Baby: 15 weeks (175 days down, 105 to go!)
Symptoms: My ribs won’t quit, but that’s old news now.
I’m starting to have some serious trouble getting back up after sitting/laying down. I use my arms and all that I have to get a “running start.” I seriously have to propel myself. Hilarious!
My skin is still not glowing, but a mess of a situation.
I’ve had some middle of the night leg cramps. That’s new!
(deep and embarassed breath)
The twins upstairs are leaking (to clarify).
I instantly regret sharing that info, BUT…
My Name is Sarah and I am an Over-Sharer.
Cravings: Reese’s and Double Stuf Oreos, once again, have taken up residency at casa de Trottier. ALSO, I’m on an ice cream kick. Mint chocolate chip or chocolate chip cookie dough…I’m here for YOU!
This video made me laugh, because it could be me if Scott makes any misstep with my Oreos!
Weight Gain: My guess is 18 lbs.
Related Purchases: We’re on a bit of a spending freeze at the moment. BUT, I’ve got my eye on a lamp or 2 at World Market for the nursery, a possible dress for my NY shower, and horizontal blinds for our bedroom.
Fear of the Week: I go for my glucose testing this week – yikes! I hope all of those Jelly Beans are well out of my system!!!
Relief of the Week: Scott has been AMAZING! He has stepped up around the house, which is crazy because he normally does SO MUCH around the house – on regular non-pregnancy days. He is already proving how great he is going to be as a Daddy (I already knew he rocked as a husband)!
2 more weeks until I enter the 3rd trimester!
Randomness: We went on our hospital tour and have toured 2 daycares (one more at the end of the week). The hospital tour was very impressive; the daycares have been…eh…
The first stranger has reached out to touch the belly – she was one of the child care workers on one of our daycare tours. Many non strangers are touching the belly more. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it, but I really don’t mind it!
Scott’s Quote of the Week: Me – “Scott! Look! When I’m sitting or laying, the top part of my belly button is now an OUTTIE!”
Scott – “Congratulations!…?” accompanied by a puzzled I’m-not-sure-if-that-was-what-you-were-fishing-forface.
I hope everyone’s having a great week. Can you believe it’s almost May?!
