I know these posts might seem and feel quite redundant, but I really, really love recording as much as I can about this pregnancy. I never did this with Abigail and SO wish that I had. I would have loved to be able to compare my girls and myself, but alas, the old memory will have to serve 🙂 As it is, I adore having a place to put all of my stats, weekly pictures, and thoughts about the current week of pregnancy and I know I will really enjoy looking back on it years from now.
Weight Gain | I’ll find out at my appointment next week. Ruh roh.
Symptoms | It’s only a mild exaggeration to say that I’m constantly peeing. Otherwise, I’m feeling really good and nothing out of the ordinary is going on!
Stretch Marks | Nothing new I think. I acquired a few on my love handles with Abigail but they turned light pretty fast. I’m hoping to luck out in that department again but I’m also not holding my breath. I told Jim last night that if he happens to notice any new stretch marks on my backside, do me a favor and don’t tell me about it. I don’t even want to know.
Belly Button | Definitely still an innie! My belly button never popped out last time, it just kind of….flattened. Hoping for more of the same again, but as always, you never know!
Cravings/Aversions | I want to annihilate a bag of chocolate chips, but I refuse to buy any so that I won’t. For anyone who knows me, chocolate is not really my thing. At all. I do salty snacks, vanilla, or peanut butter…no chocolate. So yeah, wanting to eat chocolate chips all day long is pretty unusual 🙂
Missing Most | I pinned like 10 margarita recipes the other day. That says a lot.
Size Of Baby | Cantaloupe or Ear Of Corn. Lolwut?
Movement | Plenty of it! She particularly likes to party first thing in the morning, around 10 am, 3pm, dinner time, and then right before bed around 10:30/11:00 pm. She’ll move if I poke at her anytime but I can always count on her to get movin around those times.
Sleep | I really need to invest in a sleep pillow or something. I can not stop sleeping on my back. I start out on my side and always always wake up flat on my back. Then I get really anxious and paranoid about her and can’t fall back asleep until I feel her move and know that she’s okay. Rinse and repeat. So I need something to help barricade me in and keep me from rolling onto my back.
Clothing | Mostly maternity though I have gotten creative with some non maternity items this week. Which has been fun! I also discovered a black pair of leggings in a drawer that were super stretchy so I’m hoping to maybe put together some outfits with those soon.
Gender | A little miss! Mabel Elizabeth.
Purchases | No purchases this week, but I’m constantly looking at the Freshly Picked website trying to decide which color her first pair of moccs should be. Did you see they just released the new color Birch in their crib moccs today?? I’m thinking those might be the winners…..but it feels impossible to choose! 🙂
Nursery | The paint colors are selected, the room is emptied, now Abigail and I just need to head to Phoenix so Jim can paint it!
Best Part Of The Week | On Sunday morning, I was sitting waiting for music practice to start(Jim and I both play on the worship team at church) and Mabel was sleeping. Suddenly, one of the guitars started playing and the volume had been left turned up super loud. Mabel was sleeping no longer! She started flailing and bouncing around in there and I adored it because I just got to experience her being startled. Her ears work! Yay!
Can’t Wait For | I’m taking my very first ever trip to IKEA on Saturday! I’m hoping to find some really awesome things for the house but I’m also keeping my eyes peeled for some great additions to Mabel’s nursery! IKEA lovers, any product recommendations? I’m super excited!
