sleeveless sweater cardigan / a pea in the pod (old)
How far along? 23 weeks
Total weight gain: 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? Wearing mostly maternity clothes and non-maternity sweats around the house. I am so excited for the warmer weather. It think I keep saying this, but really..
Sleep: THEEE best ever.
Best moment this week: It was just us girls- me, Parker, Jolie, and the bump:) We were having a potty party and while Jolie was doing her biz, Parker started talking about the baby.. “mama’s baby belly“. I said her name, and they both called her by name followed by the word ‘baby‘. I about died. These sweet girls are going to be the best big sisters ever. Sweet baby girl is loved.
Worst Moment this week: I can’t pinpoint a time this week that was the absolute worst.. I spent a good part of Friday last week in tears. I was so sad – but it was solid pregnancy sad. Nothing anyone could have made better. After a cry like that, Saturday was spent in and out of naps. Anyone else get exhausted from crying the way I do? Thankfully, the girls are going through a growth spurt and napped like champs and let me sleep the day away.. which turned into an amazing evening with my sweet family. Always the sunshine after the rain.
Miss Anything? Ease of moving around will be my complaint from now until she arrives. Playing around on the floor with the girls is much more uncomfortable that ever before.. climbing stairs, putting away groceries, carrying a toddler on my hip while cooking dinner. Its all getting much harder.
Cravings: Sour/tart anything, especially green apple Blow Pops. Fruit. Fruit. Fruit. This summer and the wealth of fruit is going to be amazing. I also can’t get the idea of a frozen icee pop out of my head.
Symptoms: Congestion is my only complaint. A humidifier, Breathe Again, & RC (essential oils) has changed my world and made sleeping and waking in the morning much more comfortable.
Looking forward to: We have been finding furniture and piecing together her nursery pretty quickly- and so affordably! We purchased her changing table last week and the hubby gave the go-ahead on my dream rocker which we will be purchasing soon. I can’t wait for it to all come together (I’ll be sharing details, soon!) This continues to be my favorite thing to look forward to – but the entire idea of preparing for her arrival gives me excited butterflies in my stomach. The Easter holiday is quickly approaching, and I am overwhelmed with mama love to share these memories with Parker and Jolie as a family of four for one last year.
Special thank you for the most fun summer dress from Heritwine Maternity
! I love this dress for the upcoming warmer months – wearing flip flops or dressed up with a pair of wedge heels it is pretty versatile, and way comfy. I could totally lounge on the lawn for a Fourth of July Parade in this midi length dress. Okay.. maybe lounge
is the wrong word.. roll around the grass looking like an obese walrus? Better? I think so, too. I’ll be 9 months pregnant. Walrus is much more accurate. My point is that you can move pretty freely in this dress- with just enough stretch to hide any of those unwanted bumps – not the baby bump, just to be clear.
Heritwine Maternity is super generous and offering a $25 gift certificate to one special mama-to-be just for reading my blog!
