HOW FAR ALONG: 27 weeks
TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: I’m currently 131 pounds, which puts me at 21 pounds total :/
MATERNITY CLOTHES: YES! If I attempt to put on clothing that I wore pre pregnancy I look too funny 😉
STRETCH MARKS: None yet, crossing my fingers not to get any!
SLEEP: Alright, I’m starting to get quite uncomfortable. Turning from side to side is not an easy task anymore.
BEST MOMENT RECENTLY: Welcoming my newest nephew James. He’s so so precious! I can’t believe how tiny babies are when they’re born. I completely forgot!!!
MISS ANYTHING: Definitely missing being able to do my normal chores without stopping for breaks. It’s almost as if I need to take a break every 20 minutes to catch my breath and calm my racing heartbeat.
MOVEMENT: Yes! I think she’s practicing karate or something because she’s one heck of a strong baby!
FOOD CRAVINGS: Bread & Peaches! I’m so sad that peaches are almost out of season. And bread, well, I’ve always been crazy about bread but for some reason now I crave it like no other. It’s bad I know :/
ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: Still salads… I just don’t like my veggies covered in dressing and mixed with other veggies.
LABOR SIGNS: Nope
MOOD: Getting extremely emotional and nervous. I recently had a meltdown while driving my son to daycare. I started thinking about how he’s not going to be a baby anymore and that I’ll be focusing on our little girl. For some reason I have this fear that he’ll feel neglected or something. Then, I began to cry about how happy I am and how blessed I feel for being able to give David a baby sister. Gosh, I’m an emotional wreck right now.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: 1) nursery furniture to arrive 2) planning the maternity photo shoot.
