Damn it. I'm late getting my weekly update on the blog on time AGAIN. This time I have a great excuse though – boys were at my house all weekend remodeling my laundry room, kitchen, and entryway. SCORE! Seriously, the joy and excitement I feel for being able to do my laundry inside is truly, truly sad. Wanna see how last week broke down? Check it out:
How far along? 32 Weeks
Total weight gain: 215 pounds. No really. Don't worry – I'm embarrassed enough for me for the both of us. You don't need to talk about it.
Maternity clothes? Bought a few maternity tops in a larger size. They're too big but I was thinking they'll be more comfortable as the baby drops and post-delivery.
Stretch marks? Still only a few very small, very pale ones on my lower belly.
Sleep: Sleeping fine. Getting hip pain again (only on my left side) but totally managable.
Best moment this week: Seeing the baby move externally! That shit was WILD the first time I saw it.
Miss Anything? Non-swollen hands and feet.
Movement: Neverending. She's VERY mobile.
Food cravings: Lemonade.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I got a bit queasy this week while watching The Boy eat fried chicken.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Lots of pubic bone pain and CANKLES. Friday marked the first day that I actually felt all those third trimester “icks and exhaustion” everyone talks about.
Belly Button in or out? In but barely. Trust me, it's creepy as hell to see what the inside of your belly button looks like.
Wedding rings on or off? Off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy.
Looking forward to: Finishing up the kitchen and entryway (and getting all that flooring OUT of my baby's room). It's incredible what a new fridge and floors will do to a woman.
