Due Date: September 17
Baby Size: This week he has grown to the size of a pomegranate. Weighing almost 1 pound. He is looking more human these days, with his facial features almost complete, although his eyes can’t open yet. He is also forming his unique toe and fingerprints.
Weight gain: I honestly haven’t weighed myself this week. After indulging in NYC I’m a little scared to, I’m guessing I’m up to around 13 pounds gained.
Maternity clothes: Yep! Thank god the weather finally got nice and I can live in dresses. Now I’m facing the challenge of finding a maternity bathing suit or two. Any advice?
Movement: I can feel him now!!! It’s very subtle, but it’s there. It’s hard to describe but it feels like a swooshing feeling in my lower stomach area, almost like a wave rolling through. Other times it feels like I have butterflies in my belly. Very weird!
Best moment of the week: Girls’ trip to NYC! My parents got me tickets to see Wicked on broadway for my birthday. This past weekend my mom and one of our best friends shopped and dined in the city and saw the show. It was a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend as well.
Looking forward to: Meeting our son!! I still have 18 weeks to go and I feel like I can’t wait that long!
Food cravings: Cheese, Smoothies, Cookies.
What I miss: Working out. Drinking. Shopping for non maternity clothes.
Mood: Happy and anxious!
Symptoms: Allergies, tired, hungry, and still experiencing hip pain.
Nursery: Ryan put together the Ikea dresser we will also use as a changing table (and the drama that dresser brought is a post in itself)
Loving: Finally feeling the baby! Feeling good and enjoying the weather. I love thinking about enjoying the Spring next year as a family of three.
