Happy Halloween friends! I hope you all have a chance to get into the festive spirit! We are a little late to the game buuuut will be carving pumpkins hopefully before the first Trick or Treater comes to our door. And you can bet I’ll be eating pumpkin seeds by the handful (or will it be candy!?)
How far along: 24 weeks!
Gender: Unknown … my gut says GIRL, everyone else says BOY.
Weight gain: Guesstimated 15+lbs (the Halloween-sized chocolate bars are probably NOT helping!)
Maternity clothes: YES. Actually so much more comfy than regular clothes at this point. ALSO, what is it with pregnancy pants not having front pockets!? Do they just assume we will not need front pockets?! I think I will be investing in way more leggings at this point.Super comfy and can be dressed up or down! … I tried on my winter coat and it’s S N U G already! Have to start researching alternatives before the cold weather hits … and STAYS.
Stretch marks: None
Belly button in or out: Still hanging IN there!
Sleep: SO MUCH. I am waiting for the pregnancy insomnia to hit.
Best moment this week: Hubs and I finally knocked Pumpkinferno at Upper Canada Village off our Fall Bucket List (actually has been on our bucket list for a few years now). The night was beautiful and it was such a spectacular display!
Also, GETTING MY FLU SHOT! Not. Actually, I spent that morning taking a little time for some self-care; I normally don’t get the flu shot but I have heard the flu will be bad this year … so I did that in the morning, then treated myself to a white hot chocolate downtown before walking around and window shopping in our beautiful city. It was a great way to just relax and take some time for myself.
Miss anything: S T A R B U C K S L A T T E S. I KNOW those Holiday drinks will be making their appearance coon. All I can think about are Caramel Brulee Lattes!
Movement: I honestly don’t even know if this tiny human sleeps? Always poking and prodding me. I think he/she likes to hang out on the left side of my belly … of that’s where his/her arms and legs like to hang out at least! I have caught a few glimpses of movement on the outside as well — AMAZING and soooo weird.
Cravings: Anything and everything sweet — trying to consume more fruits than candy. (Seriously though … do I stock up on cheap Halloween candy tomorrow when it’s all on sale or just let it go?)
Queasy or sick: None
Aversions: No food aversions — just smells; cooking eggs and cooking ground beef (BLEH!). I can eat them though!
Looking forward to: NOVEMBER. There is SO MUCH happening — baby showers, CHRISTMAS SHOPPING, and a sweet little babymoon staycation for hubs and I! If time could just slow down, that would be great!
Hope you all have a great Halloween friends!
