Wow – 2 weeks from being half way cooked! Again, is time going by quicker or is it just me?
I got a little sentimental this week as my mom sent me some of my old baby things. She sent me the outfit and hat that I wore when she took me home from the hospital.
I think it’s so sweet that she saved this (and so much of my baby stuff) so her granddaughter can wear it now too!
It’s also just started to become so real to me lately. I felt my first consistent kicks this week – like 7-8 in a row for sure. It was like she was saying, “Hi, mommy, I’m down here!” What’s even cooler is that most the time I feel her kicking for real, it’s when dad is talking 🙂 I think she likes daddy already.
I think pregnancy has just felt so different from I always imagined that I am still catching myself think, “When is this going to be real?” But it is real! I’m just still wrapping my head around the amazingness of it all!
How I’m feeling: Overall, still very good. Definitely some bouts of exhaustion. I got some pretty bad indigestion this week from eating larger meals. I think I need to eat a lot smaller portions – it’s just hard when I’m so hungry.
I feel like my feet are bigger, not swollen or puffy, but just… not fitting into my shoes. I knew this could happen, but I thought this was like a 3rd trimester thing? Not thrilled 🙁
Weight gain: haven’t checked
Maternity Clothes: definitely getting the hang of how to style my new clothes now. Totally love maternity pants, skirts, and panty hose.
Sleep: surprisingly much better this week and I have been sleeping like a rock. I still have some pretty insane and vivid dreams too.
Fitness: overall good, but was feeling unmotivated recently. I had to force myself to do a few workouts this week, but I did get a run in again! 🙂
We signed up for a 4 miler turkey trot this week though, so I better keep at it!
Craving: soda always sounds good (I hate this!), coffee sounds amazing now that I can stomach it – been having it a lot more now, lunch meat sandwiches, chocolate
Food aversions: edamamme, most veggies unless they are covered in cheese
Missing: nothing really, running like I used to I guess but it doesn’t even bother me much anymore.
Purchased for baby: I am doing really well with not buying things because… we keep getting so much stuff! Just this week, look what Baby Bee accumulated!
My mom sent us a care package with a bunch of my old baby clothes & toys. There’s also a few gifts thrown in there from friends.
Um, spoiled much? Girl, you are going to have everything!
Most looking forward to:
I think we also decided for real on a middle name this week and I really like her whole name. Getting excited to share that sometime soon!
Questions for You:
- Did your parents save a lot or any of your baby things? I always thought it was kind of silly, but now I understand!
- Is this whole my-feet-are-bigger thing real? It’s freaking me out!
