How big is Baby N?
It just seems crazy to me that the baby is the size of a cantaloupe now! Skin is more opaque and pink now. Getting closer and closer to viability.
What I'm Wearing?I pulled out my maternity winter coat this week, thanks to the snowfall and dropping temperatures. It's pretty comfortable and warm. I'm glad I invested in it last time and happy I can get even more wear out of it. It's pretty much a necessity for our lovely winters.
What am I NOT wearing? Maternity pantyhose! Why is it so impossible to find them? I've checked Target, The Bay, and Walmart with no luck. I would rather not by them at Thyme again since they don't stay up very well and are pretty expensive. For now I am going to try some regular nylons in a bigger size to see if they work. (So far so good- the front seam isn't super obvious and they aren't falling down! Time will tell if they work with a bigger belly though).
Aversions or Cravings?
How I'm feeling?Overall pretty good still. I have a fair amount of energy, although it seems to fade fast in the evenings. I have been getting slight heartburn during some workouts and when painting/waxing the hutch from being in awkward positions but it doesn't last long. I've also had some calf & foot cramps on occasion but I think it's more from dehydration or pushing myself in a yoga pose.
So many kicks all the time! It's a pretty amazing feeling. Hubby has been feeling lots of movement too. I think I may have felt hiccups yesterday since it was a pretty rhythmic feeling but I don't know for sure.
Sleep?I could also use more sleep but for the most part I don't have any complaints. I haven't needed to use the wedge or an extra pillow yet.
Workouts?# 4- prenatal yoga class, Lindsey's 30 minute treadmill workout & a toddler interrupted Denise Austin toning workout, Tracy Anderson's Pregnancy Project Month 5 DVD (thanks Alison!), Pregnant, not Dead workout.
I didn't get a chance to workout as much this week. Between being super tired in the evenings or just plain busy there hasn't been much time to squeeze a sweat in. The workouts I did get in were pretty tough and I'm definitely feeling them.
What I'm Excited for?Escaping winter wonderland next week, starting my new position at work, the hutch being 99% done and finally being able to work on the nursery (although that's still a few weeks away).
What I Miss?Wine. My pants staying up.
Highlights?Miss Delainey's baby shower- can't wait to have my own sweet newborn again to cuddle with all the time, mostly finishing the hutch and meeting my friend and her son for a playdate on the weekend.
Baby Purchases & Projects?I found some bedding pieces at Target that fit our nursery colour & theme- grey and aqua (not teal, according to hubby). It's a start- maybe we will look for paint colours this weekend and that will really kick us into gear!
