Week 19 (Oct 6 – Oct 12)
We had a busy (and tiring!) weekend and week working around the house. Saturday I supervised as all of the “extra things” (or as Matt would say: JUNK) got moved into storage, and then Sunday Matt and a friend worked on fixing up the outside of our house pretty much all day long. I worked inside with more organizing, de-cluttering, re-arranging, all that good stuff. (I paused for a photo session, which was lots of fun!) The work continued into the week, and we pretty much spent all of our evenings working on more projects. I didn’t realize how many little things needed to be done to get our house ready for sale, holy cow! But we are getting closer to the bottom of the to-do list, so the end is in sight. Thankfully this weekend should be a little less work-ish and a little more fun-ish. My “It’s A Baby!” party is Saturday, and Sunday I have a baby shower and another photo session with one cute 9 month-old. It’s just going to be a baby sort of weekend, and I couldn’t be happier!
Size of baby: mango
Total weight gain/loss: 16 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yep! I got my order from Old Navy this week, and love pretty much all of it. Some are a little big in the belly to wear just yet, but they will be perfect for this fall/winter. Everything is super comfy and super cute though, and at a great price! Go Old Navy! :)
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: Not getting much of that these days.
Symptoms: Not much to report other than trouble sleeping and having to pee all. the. time. Feeling lots of movement, but no complaints about that!
Best moment this week: seeing the MAJOR improvement in the front of our house. It is so cute now! I think Matt definitely nailed the “curb appeal” concept.
Movement: yes, and lots of it! She’s moving around right now, as I type this actually. :) She’s been very active at night this week…clearly a night owl like her mama. It’s still cute and fun right now, I’m hoping it stays that way and doesn’t get painful/annoying too soon.
Food cravings: fast food this week. Maybe just out of laziness but it has just sounded delicious. Along with all of my sweet treats. :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!
Have you started to show yet: Yep. I definitely feel like the belly is growing, and getting a little more round. I can still dress strategically to hide it, but I don’t usually have the energy to care. :)
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: my party tomorrow! I can’t wait to see all of the crafty decorations my BFF came up with, and to spend the afternoon with all of my favorite girlies. I will be sure to take a bazillion pictures to share. :)
