What’s new this week? I literally cannot believe how fast and yet, slow this is pregnancy is going. I’m trying to take in every moment and relax every chance I get.
This week in rambles:
It’s amazing how not pregnant and hugely pregnant I can feel in one day. I can get pretty uncomfortable at night time.
The baby just moves all the time now. She/he is getting bigger and sometimes feel like she/he is crushing my organs.
With the movement comes the fact..baby bellies are NOT always round. Mine is mostly lopsided when I sit down.
Baby has hiccups almost daily, sometimes 2x a day.
I’ve been up for atleast an hour every night. I plan on getting up early but then I can’t because I’m up for 1-2 hours a night and I’m sleepy.
My belly has starting getting in the way when I sit at the table to eat.
I’m shocked at how many broken blood cappilaries/vessels I have on my chest and face. I’m hoping they’ll go away after baby.
Baby C now has onesies from Shelter Island, Providence College, Boston College, Penn State, South Carolina, Block Island, Disneyworld and NYC. This doesn’t even include the onesies that say Italian, 1/2 italian/1/2 irish, irish, fitfluential and things about grandmas and grandpas. Can you take it? So grateful to my family and friends.
This pregnancy and baby has turned my husband into a complete mush. It’s adorable..but sometimes I have to tell him to get a grip…in the nicest way possible. He also is LOVING the book “The Baby Whisperer”. He’s all ready to get this baby on a schedule with sleeping and eating…and quiet time. (We KNOW that things don’t go as planned…but it’s still fun to read and prepare.)
I pretty much have given up on ever wanting to eat dinner until baby is here. I force down some type of meal but this week they have consisted of: quesadillas, egg drop soup & brown rice, pasta PLUS primavera and who knows what else. Do you see the theme? Carbs.
I’m SO giddy with the fact that I’ll be able to (hopefully) wear normal clothes (later) this fall.
I know I said I had a feeling what this baby is. And I still do. It just changes multiple times a day.
I’m pretty excited about our maternity photoshoot. What will I wear?!
Anything else you’d like to know?
Favorite things to do right now: Look on instagram at my feed and see all the beautiful babies that have been born recently. Watch my belly move, even though it’s not always the most comfortable. Lay in bed at night thinking of what this baby will look like. (I picture big, big brown eyes and a head full of hair!) Get pedicures. (I do this about once a month, but wish I could do this weekly!!) Spend time with friends because although I know they will all still be there, it won’t be the same!
I’m off for a walk! Enjoy the day!
