Percentage Cooked: 78%
Baby Size: My guess is 3 pounds, 6 ounces?
Countdown to Baby: Less than 9 weeks (220 days down, 60 to go!)
Symptoms: Some serious charley horse cramps are going on in my calves. At first these attacked and woke me up in the middle of the night. NOW they strike whenever they’re feeling fancy. As long as they don’t make me fall (y’all know I’ve been clum-zy!), I can deal!
Baby isn’t so much kicking these days as rolling, stretching, and glowstick dancing (ya know, it’s like a rave in there!). It’s crazy to watch my belly change shape with Baby’s gymnastics. [Sidenote: Baby T. does have a serious chance of arriving during the 2012 Summer Olympics!] The new movement is sometimes uncomfortable, but still amazing. Baby can’t help it that he/she is running outta room in there!
This innie is really becoming an outtie now. Maybe not through my clothes to YOU, but certainly when I feel it to ME!
I’m noticing the fat increase in my face…and I’m not feeling it. I’m good with my body getting bigger (I mean, what choice do I have!), but is it really necessary for my head get in on the fun?!
My hands are swelling 1-2 times a day. Not to the extreme of my rings not fitting/feeling uncomfortable, but bad enough. If this swelling stays contained to my hands, I will consider myself one lucky pregnant chica! FAT chance, though [pun intended!].
Cravings: Oreos and ice cold beverages – still nothing new here
Weight Gain: Prob 24 lbs…I don’t think this NY trip is going to help me any!
Related Purchases: I think we were too busy finishing up work and packing to buy anything. It’s GAME ON when we get back home! That nursery needs some Trottier TLC!
Fear of the Week: Keeping this baby in my belly during our NY trip. A co-worker just had her little boy 4 weeks early and a neighbor just had her little girl 7 weeks early. YIKES!
Relief of the Week: NO MORE WORK FOR MANY, MANY WEEKS =)
The first leg of our travels is over and went fairly well!
Randomness: We had our maternity photo shoot last weekend downtown with Kayla Jones Photography. It went great! Here is a little sneak peek of our shoot. (Of course we had to be silly — have we met?!)
Scott’s Quote of the Week: “Who knew a baby created so much cardboard???”
He’s SO right! Scott has made many-a-stop at the recycling center in the past couple of months with the packaging from all of baby’s gadgets.
I cannot wait for Baby T.’s baby shower this weekend! I hope to have lots of pics to share!!!
p.s. Um, it’s a high of 67° here in Upstate NY today. We’ve used Scott’s parents’ gas fireplace twice so far – haha. The weather looks to improve as the week progresses, though…80s by the end of the week!
