How Big is the Baby?
Roughly the size of a head of cauliflower: About 14.5 inches and 2 pounds.
How I’m Changing
I have very, very faint linea nigra showing up. Aside from that I am carrying pretty low, as always, and my bump is getting harder.
How I’m Feeling
I’m still recovering from my summer cold. Bleh. I’ve had a lingering cough that is really a pain in my lungs. I’m attacking it with my inhaler and pregnancy approved cough medicine, but they don’t help all that much. Baby spinach really doesn’t like all the coughing, either. After each intense coughing session (when the medicine has worn off, but it isn’t time to take another dose), she kicks like crazy. Not the fun, playful kicking that I’m used to. Full on, leave me alone! kicking. Poor thing
What I’m Eating
I’m drinking a lot of homemade passion tea lemonade and eating a ton of salad from our garden. The hubs grilled a bunch of tenderloins a week or so ago and I froze them for easy lunch salad toppers. I’m also still loving fruit: apples, grapes, watermelon.
Odds and Ends
I’ve been nesting like crazy lately! I’m also making great plans for the nursery. I fell in love with a crib that is redonkulously expensive.
I found a knock off at Target that is currently the top condenter, unless I find one that looks even more like my first love.
Things I can’t wait to eat again: I’ve had a hankering for sushi lately. Not the fake stuff, the real, raw, good stuff.
# of times I get up to pee each night: usually once, but last night I made it all the way until 6 a.m.! #smallvictories
Days until my next appointment: I had a chiropractic appointment this morning – I’m making good progress! She has a bomb.com massage chair that I get to sit in while I wait for my appointment – totally worth showing up early! As for regular doc appt. I have one, accompanied by the glucose test, in two weeks.
Total weight gained: 12 pounds
Cravings: sweets! What’s new? I’m currently adoring Warheads Cubes. OMG, could my craving get any more unhealthy?
Aversions: bending over. I attempted painting my toes this week. I think it will be the last time until she’s born-pedicures for the next 3 months. #firstworldproblems
What I miss we’re going on our short babymoon this week, and while I’m excited to get away and relax, it will be a very different experience to travel and not center our activities around wine and beer tasting! We’re making it a foodie trip instead
