Percentage Cooked: 65%
Baby Size: A little bit bigger than last time. Very specific, I know. I can’t find a cute analogy this week!
Countdown to Baby: 14 weeks (182 days down, 98 to go!)
Symptoms: Raise your hand if you’ve got back cleavage.
I’m off balance. Like fall-up-the-stairs kind of off balance. Yeah. Not good. Mama needs to slow down to make time for her back fat to catch up. Lesson learned.
I have started a waddle. This is strictly due to my thighs rubbing together at all times.
Nose bleeds are back in action.
[whisper voice]: The leaking continues…
Cravings: Double Stuf Oreos, ice cream, and anything strawberry.
Weight Gain: 20ish elle beez, fo sho
Related Purchases: 2 lamp bases from Target and some paper lanterns to take for a test drive.
Fear of the Week: Baby’s movement patterns have changed. I’ve been a bit paranoid because I can no longer predict when Baby T. is going to shake his/her moneymaker. Every time this stresses me out, he/she give me a good jab. Regardless, I like me some predictability!!!
Relief of the Week: This is my final week of the 2nd trimester! I passed my glucose test! I have a doctor’s appointment next week! (I’m clearly excited!)
Randomness: We have started to receive shower gifts in the mail. A cumulative post will follow to catch everyone up…and to publicly thank said everyone! Doncha just love the internet?
New York flights are booked – BAM! (And OHHHH SHOOT!)
People who see me everyday have all of a sudden realized that I am, in fact, pregnant. Um, have you seen me lately? I’m also really short. Not new either. People respond in total shock when they learn of my due date. “Wow, you have a long time to go!” Why yes, yes, I do. And yes, for the love of my sanity, I’m sure I’m not having twins. No really, I’m laughing on the inside. (I’ll fight you.)
I have a small case of road rage. Don’t you know that I’m pregnant and that you need to be über careful driving around me? Uh-duh. Yes Charleston, I am to blame for the increased local beeping.
I’m an emotional mess. I cried while intermittently laughing during a sad movie the other night. I’m pretty sure there was a nose bleed in there before or after a HOTTER THAN HOT snort. I’m a mess and YOU may be an innocent bystander. Equip yourself with tissues and a getaway car, people.
Scott’s Quote of the Week: Scott – “You are a mess right now. I have to pick up after you like…this is a pigpen.” Oops – so true. I’m so sorry!!! Love you, babe!
May 1st, it is. Who’s excited?!
May holds my Mom’s birthday, Mother’s Day, a Babymoon Staycation (more to come on this!), visitors from NY, and my Southern baby shower. ALSO, the countdown until summer vacation IS ON!
p.s. Jessica Simpson finally had that baby! Said best on the Twitter account for Chelsea Lately – “Jessica Simpson finally had her baby, a third-grader named Maxwell.” bahaha
