Ugh, I look tired!!!
For perspective, check out this belly when I got my hair done 8 weeks ago! →
Wowzers, that belly has doubled in 8 weeks – no?!
Percentage Cooked: 73%
Baby Size: 2.5 pounds and about 15 inches long (about 3 inches from baby’s final length!)
Countdown to Baby: Less than 11 weeks (206 days down, 74 to go!)
Symptoms: The clumsiness continues…
I dropped my corn on the cob on the floor mid-bite.
I’ve almost fallen (again) a handful of other times.
I’ve hit my “funny bone” a gazillion times. NOT.FUNNY.
I almost fainted at the pool (scary).
My gums bleed every night when I brush my teeth (not any other time of day, for some reason).
I almost ripped off my finger nail while
pulling coaxing willing pleading up my pants (trust me, it’s quite the process to get them in place these days!).
A mess – a HOT HOT mess!
Cravings: Oreos still, but Scott got me these to switch it up…
Apparently he’s a-okay with my thunder thighs – go team!
Weight Gain: My guess is 23 lbs. – I’ll report an official update from my Dr.’s appt. next week
Related Purchases: My second attempt at shower dress for NY (DONE!) and a shirt for a our maternity photo shoot next weekend…I think that’s it!
Fear of the Week: Our upcoming ultrasound and our trip to New York…no change.
Relief of the Week: 5 MORE DAYS OF WORK UNTIL SUMMER BREAK
Randomness: Also, baby has yet again changed his/her movement pattern. He/she is much more active in the morning and during the day than at night. It’s driving me nutty because we don’t get our family bonding time at night!
My southern shower was A.MAZ.ING. I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends in 2 different states (and my parents celebrating us in BOTH). A post on this to come! Here’s a picture of Baby and me to hold you over…
Scott’s Quote of the Week: I’ve got nothin’. Pregnancy brain in full effect. What’s my name again?
Happy long weekend, everyone (hopefully you get one, too)!
Happy Memorial Day…THANK YOU to all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice!
p.s. YES, friends – that is an ISLAND in our kitchen in the background!!!
