I'm a little bit late posting this update so this picture is actually at 30 weeks and 4 days.
How far along: 30 weeks
Development: Our little monkey is the size of a large head of cabbage
Movement: All the time, especially at night. It's crazy to be able to feel a limb every now and again. My mother got to feel him move for the first time this weekend which was really exciting.
Maternity Clothes: Everything is maternity now except cardigans (which I cannot button).
Stretch Marks: None yet but I am usually heavily lotioned up.
Best moment of my week: Spending time with my family over the weekend. I saw a lot of family members I haven't seen in years. I was worried that I would get negative comments about how large I am but everyone was so sweet and told me multiple ties how good I look
Worst moment: Braxton Hicks contractions are no fun. I think I've been getting them for awhile but just finally figured out what they are.
Sleep: Pretty good. I wake up really early but when I'm asleep, it's usually a nice deep sleep.
Miss Anything: Red wine (missed it big time at my cousin's wedding last weekend) and laying on my stomach.
Food Cravings: Cookies
Gender: Baby Boy
Symptoms: A little dizzy once in awhile. I also feel uncomfortable if I eat too much. And I'm noticing that I get tired out a lot easier than normal. Two weekends ago, I set out with the mission of cleaning my house and then getting my garden and flower pots ready for summer. I barely got through a fraction of the stuff I wanted to accomplish.
Belly Button: Slowly moving out. I cried a little bit yesterday night when I noticed it's almost an outie.
Moody or Happy: Pretty happy most of the time.
Looking Forward: Our fifth wedding anniversary next week. On the same day, I have an ultrasound scheduled so I'll get to to see our little guy one more time.
KDot: I love exclamation points and toast, sales and kitties, books and RDog. I teach big kids stuff, make up silly songs, and dance in my kitchen. I take a picture of my clothes everyday, but I really am shy. Welcome to my life and style journey as a wannabe fashionista.
