How Far Along? 20w, 4d - due October 15, 2015
Weight Gain: 9lbs
Maternity Clothes: Jeans
Nursery: Step 1 was cleaning out the closets in the guest room and moving Roscoe. Both were accomplished this weekend and I put together a little inspiration board!
Movement: This little baby moves a ton and it's my absolute most favorite thing in the world. Normally after lunch is when he really kicks into high gear so I've been trying to take 15 or 20 minutes to just sit on the couch with no distractions and just feel him. It blows me away everyday and I'm very anxious for Joel to feel him.
Symptoms: I've never had it in my life before now, but I can officially say that I have heartburn. It's not horrible, I haven't had to take anything for it, but it's definitely there and showing up more frequently with every passing day. It seems to bother me around the late afternoon, it will relax for a little and then sometimes show up again after dinner.
Sleep: I get up at least 3 or 4 times a night to go to the bathroom which is obnoxious, but overall sleep has been really good.
Joel: Him and I are in a very good place. I feel like I can say that since we've been together for going on nine years now. Sometimes you have good places, sometimes you don't, and right now, we are enjoying being in an upswing. He is over-the-top helpful and doting and fun and I truly feel lucky to be able to do life with him.
Workouts: 5- 1 gym/weights session, 1 hike with a girlfriend, 1 spin class, 1 pool day, and Joel and I played tennis last week too.
Mood: Happy but I had did have some bouts of anxiety this week. Working out and keeping busy are the best for my overall mood - its quiet downtime that gets me.
Cravings: Nothing distinct
What I Miss: Clear skin
Random Things: Standard week
Looking Forward To: Doctors appointment this morning and a distinct belly bump.
