I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
Thankfully this past week was a lot better than last week. I missed hitting any cars or having to do any big good byes- so def a lot better.
Plus, I ended up calling out on Tuesday since I was sooo tired and drained from the weekend. Worked out pretty well since I lounged around all day watching TV and then ultimately napping in the afternoon with the pup. As well, I went to yoga on Wednesday night. Felt good to do that and I can’t wait to do it again.
In more bump related news, I had my first belly touch this past week. Family of someone I know well but it was my first stranger to me touch. I kinda just froze in place and tried to figure out how to instantly become invisible. Price missed witnessing it but I’m sure he would have enjoyed it since he knows about my weird touching issues. (We’ve had many convos about how “I’m not a hugger” after there is an instance in which someone I’ve just met goes in for a hug and I’m forced into it since if I just stood there I’d look like a jerk.)
Also, people are charming in left and right with their guess on if it is going to be a boy or girl and their reasons behind that hypothesis. Several are quite funny so it’s amusing. We all shall find out in November.
PS- that lovely photo is after a few hours in the beach. I look like a wreck wearing a bathing suit and skirt with sandy hair, but I loved every bit of it
23 Week Bump Update
Current Due Date: 12/1/13
Weight Gain: pulled out our scale this morning and it said that I’m +2 from my pre-pregnancy weight, which would mean no change in a month since the last time I actually shared it. I have a Dr’s appointment on Friday so we’ll see what the scale says then.
Stretch Marks: nope
Belly Button: same, no change
Clothing: still in regular pants but thinking about getting a bally band to help extend the life on a few pants
Cravings/Aversions: I’m still all about impulses that pop into my head but I don’t act on them, thankfully, or I’d be in lots of trouble. But I did just see a news clip on award winning lobster rolls in Maine… noms
Sleep: never enough
Mood: better than last week 🙂
Movement: feeling pressure more often but I think The Bean is having some lazy days lately so I don’t feel much.
Milestones: 16 more weeks to go!!! Just 4 more months. Holy crap!
What I miss: not getting up in the middle of the night to pee, which as a result means I wake the dog up no matter how hard I try not to
What I am looking forward to: going to Yoga again this week & receiving the crib that my mom ordered. so excited
