Things have felt a little overwhelming around these parts. When I'm not at work, for the most part I need to be working on my portfolio for graduation...which is really inconvenient when all I want to do is organize the baby closet. I have received some of the most adorable clothes passed down from other mom friends, as well as so many gifts. (Also, let's be honest. I haven't been able to leave Target without a few outfits since I found out we were having a girl.) When her furniture arrives this weekend I'll be able to start organizing drawers, and deciding what will need to go in the closet. This is going to be one spoiled little girl!
Baby girl's bedding and some girly clothes
|On the left: Sweet little dress from my co-worker. On the right: The striped dress is from one of my best friends, auntie Brittney, and it came all the way from Paris, ooo la la|
|On the left: Little sailor jammies from my little brother - Uncle Spencer.|
How Far Along: 23 Weeks (that is almost six months for those of you who hate when pregnant women tell you how far along they are in weeks)
Size of the Baby: About a foot long and a little over a pound (fatty).
Maternity Clothes: still wearing a couple of my regular pants with my belly band - but they are getting more uncomfortable. I still need to get my maternity pants hemmed so I can wear them!
Stretch marks: not yet...but I have reoccuring nightmares about waking up to find they are covering my body.
Weight gain: I think I'm up 14 pounds (give or take). This has been the least fun part of my doctor's visits lately. I hate that they want to weigh you every time!
Sleep: I still won't complain because I know that it will get worse! :-)
Best Moment of the Week: Feeling this little girl move! Her movements are getting so strong. Brandon and I were able to watch my dress twitch with every kick. It's an amazing feeling.
Movement: All the time :-)
Food Cravings: Everythinggggg lately. One minute I want a rootbeer float, and the next I want french toast. There is no rhyme or reason, I basically just want everything I see on a commercial.
Belly Button in or out: in but getting shallow
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope (still so happy about this!)
Labor Signs: No
Wedding ring on or off: On but the heat lately sure has been making my fingers swell up - so I've taken my rings off a few times.
What I miss: Laying on my stomach! I plopped down on the couch the other day (on my stomach) completely forgetting and it hurt! It feels like I'm laying on a squishy tennis ball, or hard water ballon.
What I am looking forward to: Our baby furniture gets delivered this weekend :-) I'm looking forward to getting the nursery painted, and furniture set up!
Emotions: Not as bad as it could be but I sure do cry easily. I was working on my final portfolio over the weekend, and I started sobbing while typing. I just felt so sorry for myself. I'm so tired and I want this project to be completed so badly. I also want a cleaning lady that will scrub our bathroom from top to bottom every week. I know, first world problems.
