How Far Along? 23w, 4d - due October 15, 2015
Weight Gain: 13lbs
Maternity Clothes: Jeans and a few shirts here and there.
Nursery: The ottoman arrived and I love it! Plus, over the weekend Joel put together a mini dresser for the bottom of the closet. Come July I've got to order the glider and find a dresser!
Movement: I was so busy this past week that I didn't get a ton of time to sit and watch his shows. It's a much different feeling when I'm standing vs. sitting, but a few times this weekend I would be standing and he would give me an aggressive kick that would stop me mid-conversation. Amanda and Sara got to feel him kick this weekend too which was cute.
Symptoms: I haven't been able to kick this congestion/cold thing that I've got going on so that's been lousy. Sleep was tough this week too since I was at a bachelorette party from Thurs-Sun.
Sleep: We went line dancing on Friday night and I drank like 4 giant cups of water while we were at the bar around midnight. When I got home that night and laid in bed, I kid you not I had to get out of bed every 15 minutes. It was horrrrrrrendous because I was so beyond exhausted, but it's par for the course I guess.
Joel: We missed him this week! Joel was away for business the first half of the week and then I went to Nashville the second half of the week.
Workouts: I don't think any! Wow, that's not good - but we were super active in Nashville...between the dancing and lots of walking, I got almost 15,000 steps each day I was there.
Mood: I had a blast in Nashville but I'm paying the price now.
Cravings: Salads because I need them after a lot of indulgences lately.
What I Miss: My non-cold infested self and solid sleep.
Random Things: I didn't get to spend Joel's first "Father's-Day-to-Be"with him, so we weren't able to make too much of a to do out of the day, even though he does deserve it. I did get him a Vineyard Vines button down and a mini version for the baby. I'm giving it to him tonight so I'll have to report back later on his reaction. Also, I thought this was a pretty interesting comparison of 2 months difference.
Looking Forward To: A quiet week, getting back to feeling 100% and keeping things healthy until we leave for Chicago next Wednesday!!!!
