How far along? 19 weeks
Weight Gained: 11 lbs
Symptoms: I no longer own a bra that fits :( This has elicited muffled chuckles from my husband and a lot of empathetic “oh honey’s” but really it’s quite frustrating! Looots more stretching in there… loooots more being really tired… looots of back aches.. and everything smells strongly. That’s about all though ;)
Movement: Oh she’s getting stronger, that one! Greg even got to feel finally! He gasped and then got a huge giddy smile on his face :) :) melt melt melt did I.
Food cravings: All food. All the time. I’m ravenous. I’m actually scaring myself.
Food aversions: Not so much
Sleep: Better. Naps have become a fun little activity again :)
Stretch marks? Not yet
Belly button in or out? In
Miss anything? Not really
Mood? I’m currently grumpy for no reason but the rest of the week I’ve been quite happy :)
Maternity Clothes? You guys. Maternity leggings. Everyone should wear them. They. Are. So. Comfy. Or at least mine are.. I’m going to become that lady that wears big shirts and leggings the rest of her life.
New baby items: My stuff finally came in the mail. I showed Greg and he said “I’m not sure that blanket is good enough for our baby!” Hehe he’s gunna be the best dad.
Exercise: I’ve come to terms with the fact that I hate exercising. Yet, all of a sudden I feel an intense desire to get in shape (this desire has haunted me my entire life… I’m waiting for the day when it just TAKES OVER! Please day, come soon.) Seriously, the amount of hatred I have for it is mounting and yet, I’m becoming bigger and bigger…… so today I listened to Christmas music on my walk and it was much more enjoyable ;) Whatever works, right? It’s also taken most of the afternoon to recover from that walk. I’ve just shot way past pathetic.
Best moment of the week: We had our first birthing class! That was fun. I know it seems early but we are moving *hopefully* right when all the ones at the right time are starting so I thought it would be better to get it out of the way before move/holidays/baby hit. Plus, more time to practice the stuff right? :D I’m going to be a birthing expert.
Looking forward to: The Weekend!!
