How far along?
24 weeks – 6 whole months! Cannot believe how fast the time is flying by with this little peanut.
Unfortunately, yes. Having the hardest time finding affordable clothes that I like. I’m really glad maxi skirts/dresses are “in” for the summer! Makes life a whole lot easier.
Interrupted lately with frequent trips to the bathroom and crazy dreams. For instance, last night I dreamt that I was in a parking lot in the winter time – and a strange man started following me and abducted me. Then it turned into me trying to find this man (who abducted me.. but turns out, he really abducted a little girl and I witnessed it? Who knows), in the grocery store, shooting him with machine guns that shot gum balls instead of bullets. Then I chased him down and found him in the parking lot, where he tried to stab me, and I stole his knife and “stabbed” him (but really just cut into his skin a little bit) about a zillion times. So bizarre!
Best moment this week:
I’ve had a few. Monday night, when I got home from work after a long day and spent the evening eating cake and ice cream, watching hockey, and relaxing with Luke. Last night, FaceTiming with my sister who I miss SO much, being weirdos together, as per usual. Also… really looking forward to tomorrow at 5:00, so I can give the weekend a nice warm welcome back into my life.
Not in particular.
Another active week this week! Baby girl was moving so much the other day that I had to stop what I was doing at work until she settled down in there! Baby kicks can be very distracting! But they’re my absolute favorite.
I’ve been really craving a Boston cream donut for the past few days. Resisting so far, but it might be necessary to indulge within the next couple of days.
Anything making you queasy or sick:
I’ve had a case of the sniffles for the past few days (apparently pregnancy can cause allergies, which is interesting). So that has been making me feel a little under the weather, queasy stomach here and there, but nothing major – and definitely nothing like those first 16 weeks!
Noo. Although we’ve officially hit the point where the pregnancy is “viable,” meaning MJ would have a 1 in 4 chance of surviving outside of the womb at this point, I’d rather not test the odds! Baby girl seems to be quite cozy in there, and will hopefully have another 3 months of solitary confinement ;)
Still sciatica and sore ribs, although they’ve been a lot better this week.
Belly Button in or out?
I guess technically in. Getting closer to popping out every day.
Wedding rings on or off?
Happy or Moody most of the time:
Happy. The moodiness is starting to creep up on me, and I can feel it coming but I’m trying to fight it with every ounce of my being. So far, a cup of hot cocoa does the trick and makes me feel better.
Looking forward to:
Short-term: the weekend! Overall, I’m really looking forward to (and a little bit anxious for) our next ultrasound next Tuesday so we can find out if my placenta previa has corrected itself and watch our little peanut on the big screen.
