Finally took some bump pics tonight. Check it out:
And I also took the time to make a comparison of my 12 week bump to tonight's bump. Definite difference!! Which is WAY exciting!!
And just for fun, here is a ridiculous pic Hubby took of me trying to make my belly talk. Didn't realize he was still taking pictures. :P Enjoy the laugh. :)
Next appointment: May 1st. Just a little over a week away...
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still fluctuating a bit here and there but pretty much remaining steady at 8 pounds less than pre-pregnancy. Need to pack on the protein!
Exercise: Walks when it is nice. Might be adding some specific routine stuff to target my lower back, abs, and legs to aid with delivery. I need to, I just need the will power to make it happen.
Maternity Clothes: Still a no. But I had about 5 people remind me on Sunday, while I was wearing a nice Easter dress that I wouldn't be able to fit in skinny little outfits like that much longer. :P
Sleep: Sleep is hit or miss this past week. Some days are good, some days aren't. Seems to be an every other day kind of thing - not enough sleep one night and then playing catch up the next. I did get in a nap today at work while the baby was sleeping. It was nice.
Food Cravings/Aversions: I had to get groceries last Thursday. I came home and told Hubby, "I might have bought all of the jelly beans." I just couldn't make it stop - new flavor? Going in the cart. The frugal side of me kept saying - "These are going to be 50% off in just 4 days." But the pregnant side of me won! ;)
Movement: Not yet. The other day when the little one I watch was sleeping in my lap, I kept thinking I felt something. But it turned out her arm had someway worked itself into a really weird position and was twitching every once in awhile. haha. I'm just itching for the first movements!
What I Miss: The occasional glass of wine. We aren't big alcohol people and usually save it for special occasions. But I really do love a nice glass of wine from time to time. I think it bothers me now because I really can't have it. lol.
What I'm Loving: I have more energy. Definitely not back to where I was. But I'm able to do more and get more done before I feel like the walking dead.
What I'm Looking Forward To: My nausea disappearing. haha. If that happens I suppose...
Best Moment This Week: Hearing Hubby admit that it all became more real to him when he saw the ultrasound. And for him to be more about "the bump" - touching it, talking to the baby, etc.
Milestones: Babies ears moved from its neck to its head. lol.
Goals: Eat more. Slow down. And house related - organize our office space which includes all of our cleaning stuff, my craft stuff, and our coat closet...which is literally overflowing with shoes.
