Maternity clothes? I’m still mixing and matching maternity and my old stuff. For now a maternity tank under a regular shirt or sweater seems to work just fine!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: I’ve been hit with pregnancy insomnia lately. I wake up around 3ish and it takes me over an hour to go back to sleep. So when that 5:45 alarm goes off I’m soooo tired!
Best moment this week: Lots and lots of kicks and seeing a healthy baby on the ultrasound. And we held strong and didn’t find out the gender! I can’t believe we did it! Really, my husband was much stronger than me and without him I totally would have caved. I do have to go back for another ultrasound at 28 weeks because baby wasn’t cooperating and they didn’t get to see everything they needed. So I have to stay strong again!
Miss Anything? Just sleeping and feeling cute.
Movement: Yep, lots of movement up in here! My whole belly shakes and it’s pretty funny. It’s also really hard to hold a toddler on your lap when you are also getting kicked from the inside.
Food cravings: Nothing new…I will do anything for lemon meringue pie.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just car rides! And if I eat too much.
Gender: Not even the ultrasound tech knows….only God! We’ll find out in June!
Labor Signs: None.
Symptoms: Minor back pain and tired all the time. No big deal.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Great! My bff Erin is having her baby girl today! I’m soooo excited! And remember two weeks ago when I asked for prayers for my roommate from college? Well, she had her baby girl, Ana, at 24 weeks, and although they have a long NICU stay ahead of them, Ana is doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers…keep them coming!
Looking forward to: Figuring out what we are doing with the baby’s room. We spent the weekend cleaning out his/her closet and just need to take down the full size bed that’s in the room and then we’ll have a clean slate! Trying to decide on paint colors when you don’t know the gender is hard! And no, I’m not doing green and yellow. I’m leaning towards a light grey (surprise) and my husband is leaning towards navy blue. We shall see who wins that one.
