We are one week closer to meeting Baby M! I’m already getting antsy, and it’s probably way to early for that. If you asked my husband, he would tell you that I am the most impatient person he’s ever met. Don’t worry, though, I want this little baby to fully cook first. No rush! 🙂
So what is baby up to? According to MSN Health, “Because the inner ear — which controls balance in the body — is now completely developed, your baby may be able to tell when he or she is upside down or right side up while floating and making movements in the amniotic fluid.” I wonder how he feels during my runs? I hope he likes rollercoaster rides! 😉
Total Weight Gain: I’ll update after my trip to the gym! We don’t own a scale.
My Body: My belly is growing, growing, growing! I’ve been struggling with body image issues lately, but this week I’ve really started to love my belly. I think working out has made me much more comfortable in my new skin! 🙂 I still have my bellybutton, don’t have any visible stretch marks, and haven’t had too many issues with being uncomfortable. So far, so good!
Maternity Clothes: I need new workout clothing. Seriously, I only have one pair of shorts and two sports bras that aren’t totally obscene. (But trust me, they are borderline…) I also can’t wait to buy some dresses! Spring is approaching, and I am totally ready for some comfortable, “flowy” outfits.
Cravings: Fresh flavors! Lemons, strawberries, veggies, you name it. I still love hot sauce, though, too!
Sleep: I’ve lost it again. Now I can’t make it two hours without having to get up. Maybe I should stop drinking water past a certain time… Any suggestions?
Baby Items Bought/Received: We’re re-painting my old desk. It was white already, but it was pretty banged up. We’re going to use that instead of purchasing a changing table or dresser for him. Hey, we’re saving money where we can!
Best Baby Moment: He rolls around now all the time! I thought the kicks were pretty amazing, but this just takes it to a whole new level. I picture him in there trying to get comfortable and it makes me smile. 🙂
Goals: Paint the baby room! I don’t know why, but that is the one thing that keeps popping into my head. I realize it’s not even important in the grand scheme of things, but it’s at the top of my list.
Worries: I have no huge worries at the moment about the baby, but I have a few selfish worries like when and if I’ll get stretch marks. Don’t come after me with the pitchforks just yet… I’m not totally vain. I’d take all the stretch marks in the world for a healthy baby, but that doesn’t mean I want them!
I’m so ready to meet this little boy. Although, I think someone is already jealous… I’m not sure Bud is ready for a brother! 😉
