Size of Baby: Squash and Celery. I’m not really believing the “squash” comparison but BG is around 17 inches long and a little more than 4 pounds.
Weight Gained: As of last Tuesday, I’m up by a little less than 9 pounds. I have another appointment on Friday so I’m sure we’ve had a little more weight gain.
Workouts/Exercise: Still going strong. Like I’ve said, I’m listening to my body and modifying as necessary. Some balance exercises are starting to prove a little more challenging.
Sleep: No more late night hunger episodes have happened but I do find myself shifting positions several times during the night. I’ve always been one to wake up to use the bathroom but it’s happened more than once a few nights over the past two weeks.
Symptoms: She’s still having moments of putting pressure directly on my bladder. I’ve also noticed I’ve been a little clumsy some days – dropping things mostly.
Food Aversions: None!
Cravings and Favorite Foods: My entire pregnancy I’ve loved my Fage yogurt bowls in the morning with a crunchy cereal, chia seeds and peanut butter. On Christmas Eve, my Mom served a cheesy bread that was absolutely divine and tasted better than it’s ever tasted before.
Looking forward to…: Nesting. And being able to drink wine again. Not being able to have my Christmas morning mimosas made me sad. Being able to wear ALL my clothes. As you know, I haven’t purchased too many maternity items so I’m wearing the same thing over and over and I’m starting to get bored with myself.
Baby/Pregnancy Purchases: Hangers for her closet so I can start nesting. I also got a few items for Christmas: closet size dividers, a stroll-o-meter (so I can track my steps on our walks), a few onesies, nursing pajamas, a play mat for BG, and a gorgeous baby book that I plan on working on later in the week
Other: The curtains have arrived and they should be hung by the end of the day tomorrow. We tried today but we had the wrong size of the pin hooks we needed. Christmas was absolutely wonderful and I loved seeing all BG’s cousins enjoying the magic of the day. I know that Christmas (and all other holidays) will be so much sweeter once she arrives.
