Maternity Clothes: My belly definitely feels bigger this week, like way bigger, & for the first time (in both pregnancies), my belly button looks like it may close up soon. This is a non-maternity dress from Forever 21, similar here, I am so thankful for dresses because I feel more like a stuffed sausage in pants every day.
Best Moment This Week: Several days of organizing & way too many trips to the goodwill later, we have an EMPTY room for the nursery! It is such a good feeling to have that behind us, next up is painting the walls before we bring any furniture in. I am starting to actually feel like we may have everything done before she gets here!
Miss Anything: Some sanity when it comes to being hungry. I go from not being hungry at all to starving in 2 seconds flat, & it makes me feel like a crazy person. My husband went to pick up a (heated) turkey sandwich for me the other night & instead accidentally came home with a ham one, it was seriously devastating. The fifteen minutes I had to wait for him to come back with the right sandwich felt like forever & I really almost cried. It reminded me of the time I was pregnant with Waverly & craved chicken salad sandwiches like it was my job, I drove all the way to get one, set it down in the living room while I went to grab my drink & when I came back, our dog had eaten the ENTIRE thing. I'll let you imagine how that moment went down.
Movement: YES, the amount I have felt her more this week is definitely worth mentioning, her movements (at least the ones I have felt), have probably tripled in the last few days! She must be getting bigger in there, I love it!
Cravings: This week I have been thinking about yogurt, fruit & granola all the time, such a welcome change to my previous cravings!
Queasy or Sick: No, other than migraines which I had with Waverly, too. For the most part, I am feeling great, tired, but great!
Looking Forward To: Our next appointment is today, I absolutely love checking in on our little lady & making sure everything is moving along as it should! Our appointments usually only consist of measuring my belly & checking on the heartbeat, but it still is reassuring every single time. On a side note, we do have a heart rate monitor at home, which we try to only to use once every couple of weeks especially now that I can feel her, but lately Waverly is obsessed. She asks to hear "baby sister's heart beep" every night, is there anything cuter?!!
Happy week ahead, friends!
