HOW FAR ALONG?
27 weeks and loving it. We are officially less than three months away from Bubba’s grand entrance and I’m freaking out and cannot wait all at the same time!
23 (?) lbs. I try not to weigh myself too much (just at doctor’s appointments) because I mean, I don’t want to gain a jillion pounds, but I also don’t want my pregnancy to be centered around my weight. I want to just enjoy it all! Even if I gain a little more and it takes a while to return to my pre-pregnancy weight.
Bless up for maternity clothes! I honestly still don’t have a lot, but let me just say that maternity garments and pants are LIFE SAVING! They are so comfortable and I don’t feel like my belly is constantly peeking out and/or being cut in half lol. I did do a little shopping spree a few weeks ago at Plato’s closet and got clothes that are a size larger than I normally buy. I was super conscious of everything I bought and tried to buy things for my pregnant self and for after baby arrives that I’ll feel happy and confident in. I have no idea how the reality of birth and the toll it took on my body will set in, but I’m trying to do everything I can to mentally and otherwise prepare for it. I just want to enjoy the summer and feel confident in my body that MADE A FREAKING HUMAN!
Sleeping well still (knock on wood). Bubb’s is always awake at 11 PM, but luckily, he doesn’t really keep me up later than I’m used to. And last night was the first time ever during this pregnancy that I actually got up in the middle of the night to pee. I’m hoping that won’t start to become a regular thing, but it definitely might…. Pray for me, lol.
BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK?
I love watching him move. But something that was really fun this week was being able to have our friends feel him move! He’s so dang stubborn and anytime anyone (even Ruben like 90% of the time) tries to feel his movements, he stops moving and pretends to sleep. So like no one has seen or felt him move! But last night we were having a game night with friends and he was being super active, so I asked my friends if they wanted to feel and they were all able to feel him kick! It’s really fun to share this with our best friends. Now they just need to all have babies too… lol
Officially have a craving and it’s SWEETS! I can’t decide how I feel about it. It tastes sooooo good, but I’ve been really good about my eating and not gaining hella weight because I haven’t had any cravings really this whole pregnancy. But now I need to end every meal with ice cream or cookies or a bowl of cereal… I’m trying so hard to moderate myself, but… Sometimes I sit down to eat 3 thin mints and the next thing I know I ate half a sleeve. It happens and I’m trying not to guilt myself too bad about it!
ANYTHING MAKING YOU QUEASY?
Nothing really lately. I mostly just get queasy when I overheat. It’s been happening more lately, but luckily Utah is still stuck in winter, so I just gotta put my forehead against the window or go outside for a few minutes and I’m back to normal!
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO:
My baby shower! I’ve been holding off (surprisingly well) on buying things for Bubba partially because I want to wait to see what we get at the shower, but also partially because everything is still winter stuff and Bubba will be a summer babe. But I’m just excited to see everyone and share my excitement with all my friends and family! And also to figure out what else we need and start buying things for his nursery and everything.
