how far along: 37 weeks
gender: still a secret…from everyone, even us!
weight: 25 pounds (going on about 2 weeks and sticking at 25 ponds so far!)
maternity clothes: oh yea babe! And I’ve finally outgrown my medium t-shirts so I’ve being sporting large’s around the house and my maternity clothes whenever I head out.
stretch marks: thankfully no! Yea!!
belly button in or out: still pretty flat but there is a part that looks like it might, just might pop out! We shall see!
sleep: varies. Some nights I sleep great and others it takes me forever to fall asleep and then I’m up at 5 in the morning. Anxiety? Perhaps…
best moment this week: my father and I took a day trip to the beach (see photo above). It was amazing! The weather was perfect, the sand was white, and the water was blissful! It felt so good to just float and not have to carry around this extra 25 pounds! It was a great day!
miss anything: putting on my socks and running shoes without having to do contortionist moves and then being out if breath!
movement: whoa does this baby move! It sometimes feels like s/he is doing the wave in my tummy. James thinks it’s PJ playing along with the World Cup or catching a wave (from our beach trip). And the hiccups have been about 3-4 times a day. Still the coolest thing EVER!
cravings: cherries. I can go through a whole bag in about 3 days. And sliced apples dipped in caramel sauce. Yum. But that’s about it.
queasy or sick: nothing. Still really bad heartburn 24 hrs a day and nothing is working to help it go away. I read that applesauce may work so I’ll be trying that tomorrow!
looking forward to: my amazing husband is coming home Thursday night for the holiday weekend! This’ll probably be the last time I see him until after PJ is born (unless PJ decides to cooperates and shows up over the weekend)! AND I start water Zumba on tues for a few classes.
It’s gonna be a great week!
