How Far Along? 21w, 4d - due October 15, 2015
Weight Gain: 9.5lbs
Maternity Clothes: Jeans....I'm starting to feel like I may need to get some workout clothes, and I may invest in a swimsuit too.
Nursery: Major happenings were made this week! We were gifted a crib, and even though it isn't white, I actually love the contrast against our walls, so we are going to keep it and make it work! We also purchased the daybed from ikea, the Moroccan pouf from Wayfair, ordered swatches for a glider, and bought a very cool metal bookshelf!
Movement: By far my favorite experience of pregnancy so far. Of course, since I do feel him everyday, sometimes when he is quiet or we go a few hours with nothing, I get a little neurotic about it but, that's just my personality. I still love finding time to just lay down when he is moving to just soak it in. Joel has felt about 5 hard kicks and even saw my stomach move with a few kicks too which is amazing.
Symptoms: Pretty solid week....touches of heartburn,
Sleep: I fall asleep pretty easily but by 4am it gets really choppy and I just toss and turn until I have to get up. Plus, I'm getting up in the night at least 4 times to use the bathroom so I'm always very ready to go to bed by 9.
Joel: Put the crib together this weekend which I feel like is a really cute dad-to-be rite of passage.
Workouts: Four - 2 gyms sessions (one treadmill session next to Guiliana Rancic), 1 tennis, 1 swim session.
Mood: I had a total tantrum this week playing tennis. My tennis skirt and workout shirt were SO tight and I felt slow, and annoyed, and majorly uncomfortable the entire time and pretty much pouted off the court.
Cravings: I need my cup of coffee in the morning badly! I've never needed coffee, but now that I'm not sleeping amazingly, I feel like I cant function without it.
What I Miss: Clear skin, day drinking, and sleeping soundly.
Random Things: Along with being gifted a crib, our friend gave us a brand new pack and play too. Serious question, are all pack and plays so impossible to click together? This damn thing made us look like major parent rookies! We did do it successfully 3 times, but we were both sweating when it was over.
Looking Forward To: We are going to register on Sunday!
