Hi friends!! Merry (late) Christmas and Happy (late) New Year!!
The last time I blogged I was going thru some major changes (refer to the last post for details) then the holiday traveling and craziness started and I never managed to find the time to read your blogs or do any posts myself. BUT, I am back.
Here is just a little of what I have been up to the past month....
-Officially became a stay at home wife/future mom
- Went to my little sister's college graduation in Statesboro, GA, then spent a weekend in Savannah with my family and celebrating an early Christmas.
- Spent a few days in OKC with my husband's family celebrating Christmas
- Celebrated Christmas in Texas with family
- Am officially past the half way mark! A little over 18 weeks to go!
-Ordered the baby furniture and registered
And now for the way past due bump update....
(Pic taken on Christmas Day- 12/25/12- 20 weeks)
How far along? 21 weeks and 6 days
How big is baby? About 1 lb and the size of a Spaghetti Squash
Total weight gain/loss? As of last Wednesday, 1/2/13- 4 lbs. I feel like I have gained about 20 though!
Maternity Clothes? Oh yes, all the time
Stretch Marks? Yep, on my sides. Boo.
Sleep? Waking up 3-4 times to use the bathroom and usually wake up between 4 and 5 and can't go back to sleep for a long time. Every time I switch positions it causes a lot of pain....
Miss anything? Not being in pain all.the.time!
Movement? YESSSS!!!!! Best feeling ever :) The first time I felt little kicks was at 18 weeks. In the past 2 weeks they have gotten much stronger and my husband can feel them now. Over the weekend I finally saw my stomach moving from the outside.
Food Cravings? Carbs and fruit. Yesterday I would have killed for a hot dog but I did not feel like going anywhere to get one ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Red meat and mint gum
Have you started to show yet? Um, yes. I feel like I am the size of a house. I regularly get asked when I am due by strangers.
Gender? Baby Boy! Connor Christopher :)
Labor Signs? Nope!
Belly Button in or out? In, but it feels different.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy :)
Symptoms? Lower back pain and lower stomach/pubic bone pain. The ultrasound tech at last week's anatomy appt said that he is sitting really low so that is what is causing all the "lower region" pain. It hurts the worst when I am laying down and have to move or if I have been sitting and I try standing up. Holy cow...painful. Other than that, I feel great!
Looking forward to? The nursery is getting painted this week and we are finalizing the fabrics for the bedding, pillows and window treatments. Yippy! And we booked our Baby Moon last week! We will be spending 4 days on the beach in Mexico at the end of February!
I am so happy to get back to blogging...I missed this little world!
