How far along: 27 weeks!
Gender: Unknown, looking forward to seeing what guesses are this weekend!
Weight gain: I would say 17+lbs at this point!
Maternity clothes: I think I still have to invest in a few more tops/sweaters and pants and then I should be good to go. Thanks to Instagram, this hoodie was suggested to me. Now it’s just a matter of getting to the store and buying it!
Stretch marks: They have made their presence known!
Rings on or off: I have been wearing them less and less these days. They DO still go on, but I get super nervous at the end of the day. Do I just ditch them altogether at this point,or sweat it out? I’m a little afraid of them getting STUCK.
Belly button in or out: Still in, but shalloooow.
Sleep: Good, but I have been finding that by the evening I am just EXHAUSTED. And when I get into bed I am OUT. Unfortunately, I still can’t sleep past 7:30am ON WEEKENDS!?
Best moment this week: Organizing all of the wonderful gifts we got for baby into his/her nursery. Missing a few important pieces of furniture to get it ALL set up, but hopefully (weather permitting) we will be able to get them this weekend! AND taking a little trip over the border to pick up some Christmas presents and wander aimlessly around everyone’s favourite happy place … TARGET.
Worst moment this week: Ugh, we had to cancel our sweet little day trip to Le Nordik Spa over the weekend because of weather … which means this Mama is in need of a local pre-natal massage. Any recommendations YGK friends?!
Miss anything: Sleeping on my back. That’s all I want to do.
Movement: Movements G A L O R E. And I can feel them all the time; standing, sitting, walking, driving, laying down! It seems to still be just little jabs/kicks/punches here and there but I -think- I’ve started to feel rolling … like the baby is moving but cannot be felt on the outside … just sort of twirling around in there. ANYWAYS.
Cravings: Clementines and all things cinnamon and sugar. Luckily I found a wicked and relatively healthy oatmeal recipe that involves cinnamon and sugar and I have been eating it for breakfast when I have time.
Looking forward to: Our busy weekend ahead! A concert, some (hopefully Christmas) shopping, picking out some final pieces of furniture and details for Baby L’s nursery and my second baby shower that is being thrown by my side of the family! SO SO SO excited to see all my friends and family members this weekend!
