october 28 - november 3
what has been going on this week: celebrated halloween, said goodbye to my parents for 6 weeks and inherited one of their cars permanently (the first time ever we've owned 2 cars!), took azalea to the children's museum, went to thatcher's co-worker's party, daylight saving time
size of baby: he weighs around 3.75 lbs (still betting my little chubber weighs more) and measures 16.7 inches long. the size of a large jicama.
maternity clothes: just rotating my little maternity wardrobe. haven't bought anything for myself in a while and i'm going to try not to for the rest of my pregnancy...we shall see. (still going strong)
purchases: well, I went a little crazy yesterday at moa and babies r us. i picked up a bundle me for $25(!) at marshalls, 2 swaddle mes, 3 bibs, a fleece hat, 2 outfits, and a changing pad cover. most of it was stuff i needed and the rest i just couldn't resist ;)
symptoms: the usual: broken out skin, hungry and tired a lot, braxton hicks contractions, some ligament pain, but overall i feel pretty good! evenings/sleeping are the most uncomfortable.
movement: he has 2 speeds: calm and craaaaazy. haha
gender: baby BOY! i've been thinking so much lately how fun/different it will be to meet our SON!
food cravings/aversions: waaay too many sweets have found their way to my belly this week. oh, and the holiday drinks are starting to come out at coffee shops. so glad i'm over that aversion!
morning sickness: still that liiiiitle bit of nausea in the morning. i've just accepted that it probably won't go away. at least it doesn't last long.
what i miss: sleeping comfortably and not feeling huge, but if those are my biggest problems i'm pretty lucky.
best moment of the week: watching azalea have fun on halloween!
what thatcher is saying: i think he is gonna paint this weekend or next! yay!
sleep: as i mentioned above, sleep is getting pretty uncomfortable, but that's to be expected. the other morning i woke up feeling fine, but by the time i hit the shower i had such bad ligament pain in the bottom right side of my belly, i could hardly stand up straight. it took a while, but thankfully it went away. no fun!
what i'm looking forward to: let's see....picking a name, more nursery progress, i can't believe we are 8 weeks from my due date!
doctor: had my 32 week appt. it was short and sweet. good blood pressure, weight gain is on track, and belly is measuring perfectly. hoping everything stays that way!
