what has been going on this week: went out for dinner with kelli/jake, thatcher was sick for a few days, i had a big conference for work, celebrated gavin's 3rd birthday and viv and dennis' 40th anniversary.
size of baby: he weighs 1 and 2/3 pounds and measures 14 inches long. the size of a scallion.
maternity clothes: i've already outgrown 1 pair of maternity jeans (to be fair, i knew they wouldn't last the whole pregnancy, but they were super cheap). i replaced them with another pair of my beloved h&m skinny maternity jeans (seen in pic) :)
symptoms: the usual: broken out skin, hungry and tired a lot, braxton hicks contractions, some sharp pains in my lower pelvic area (fun!) :/
movement: my little mover and shaker is starting to hurt mama sometimes, but i'm mostly still loving his movement. be nice to me, baby!
gender: baby BOY!
food cravings/aversions: pretty much all food sounds good these days (and lots of it) :) i've also been loving chai teas as well. i only drink them 1-2 times/week though to limit the caffeine.
morning sickness: still that liiiiitle bit of nausea in the morning. yep, still...
what i miss: nada!
best moment of the week: getting through a successful conference at work that i had a large part in planning.
what thatcher is saying: can't think of anything noteworthy...
sleep: i really should be getting up every night to empty my bladder, but the truth is sometimes i'm just too lazy...which makes for not so fun sensations by the time my alarm goes off.
what i'm looking forward to: my appt, giving this little guy a name, and starting his nursery
