How Far Along? 19w, 5d - due October 15, 2015
Weight Gain: 8lbs
Maternity Clothes: Jeans but that's it.
Nursery: June will bring some changes.
Movement: I think I'm feeling him (!!!) a lot. I try to feel him from the outside, but that is still pretty tricky. I only feel him when I'm sitting down or laying down but it's a pretty wild feeling. It still feels like muscle twitches but sometimes it takes my breath away.
Symptoms: Feeling full does not feel comfortable at all. My skin is still really bad. I have had a zit/mark in the middle of my forehead for three weeks now, and I feel like my skin is much greasier than normal. My stomach is still not fully "popped" but in the morning and at night when I lay flat, my stomach sticks far out.
Sleep: I'm still sleeping pretty solidly, but I definitely need to sleep with a pillow between my legs.
Joel: He and I have been having a lot of fun calling the baby by his name. While we were shopping over the weekend, my cousin and I popped into a store and Joel was just waiting outside for us to do our thing. When he realized that it was a baby store, he came in and found us and was like, "well I would have come in if I knew we were shopping for the baby". It was really cute and we bought a little KickKee Pants blanket with a really cute print of a dog playing fetch which was exciting.
Workouts: 1 gym, 1 spin class, 1 pool session and 2 hikes with my cousin. It was an active week - but also a food filled one - so it kind of balanced out.
Mood: Joyous most of the time but I do quickly irritate.....
Cravings: Same....I do find myself craving a smoothie if I go a few days without one, but otherwise, not much
What I Miss: Not much.....I did take a pass on oysters this weekend but it wasn't that big of a deal.
Random Things: Baby got his first gift from his Coco (I'm trying to convince my mom, Connie, to go by Coco....isn't it super cute?) and I pretty much just died with the IL onesie.
Best Moment This Week: Honestly, just knowing the baby is a healthy baby boy. We were given a DVD of our ultrasound from last week, so Joel and I watched it once together, and then my cousin indulged me watched it again with me, so she got a chance to see her nephew and all of his gymnastic moves. It's been a very, very sweet few weeks.
Looking Forward To: Next week we have a normal check up appointment
