How far along? 33 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +21lbs
Stretch marks? Nope! But I can definitely feel my skin getting tighter… eeek :(
Sleep: Meh… I lost my body pillow this week so sleep has been dicey. I’m currently using a bolster as a nightime knee spacer and it’s FABULOUS!
Best moment this week: BABY SHOWER! Oh my gosh, so much fun :) It was so amazing having my best mommy friends and family with me to prep welcoming Baby W into the world.
Miss anything? Sangria. We made a giant batch of it for the party and like 3 people had some. The college party girl in me cried a little as I poured the rest down the sink.
Food cravings: Beef. Roasted beef to be specific. And, god help me, the coconut cravings are returning. Nooooooo!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Normal stuff… Eggs, chicken, super salty/sweet things,
Labor signs: Nope.
Belly button in or out? STILL IN. 55 more days for you to pop out, little belly button! We can do this!!!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy! And sore lol.
Looking forward to: Painting the mural! It’s up, it looks amazing, it just needs some color now.
Oh, and this! I’m already learning where to save my money next time we have a little one on the way. First and foremost, I’m not buying a body pillow. The bolster works perfectly fine AND is less cumbersome in the bed. Don’t get me wrong, those full-body snailshell pillows are awesome and everything, but the first day I had mine I accidentally ripped part of the curly snailshell bit by the feet and it’s never been the same. And by “never been the same” I mean each morning we’d wake up covered in pillow stuffing like it was mother flippin’ Christmas morning and our dog would look at us like “it wasnt me! you took away all my toys before bed!” and I’d have to sheepishly stuff all the fluff back into my body pillow. Yep. So the body pillow has taken a permanent field trip to the local dump and its new friend bolster is keeping me pretty satisfied. Also keeping me satisfied? My husband, who happens to double as a great body pillow himself! Even better, he’s heated! WOOHOO!
