Baby is the Size of a: Avocado
Food Cravings: Any kind of Baked Goods: Cookies, Cake, Brownies, etc.
Food Aversions: Onions are the worst… that smell, that taste – ugh! The only way I can eat an onion right now is if it’s a sweet onion that has been thoroughly cooked and mixed into the food.
Looking Forward to: Finding that perfect house, moving-in, and finally starting on a nursery for baby!
Maternity Clothes: I have a feeling that maxi dresses are going to be my life-saver during this summer pregnancy in the desert! Here are 5 reasons why:
- Most designs are very affordable somewhere between $25-$50.
- It’s easy, just one piece. You don’t have to find a pair of pants to go with a shirt and vice-versa.
- I honestly can’t think of anything that exists in women’s fashion that’s more comfortable.
- They look cute and compliment the body well.
- This will be the best way to stay cool during the hot summer months here in Arizona.
Old Navy recently had a maternity sale and I found these two maxi dresses:
Simple Black – currently only $25
Blue & Green Color-Block – currently only $28
Best Moment of the Week: On Friday, my day off from work was spent mostly at the salon! I got a pedicure, manicure and my first hair cut/color since our move. The baby and me loved all the extra pampering and I feel like I got a little boost for my self confidence. Much needed since I’m obviously starting to get a little bigger now… I knew the belly was coming, but it still takes a little getting used to when seeing that reflection look back at you from the mirror!
Worst Moment of the Week: The unexpected (and very unwelcomed) return of morning sickness! wtf? I thought this nonsense was behind me? Nope, I was wrong… back to struggling through hours of nausea and gagging at the slightest scent of something foul.
Newest Baby Purchase: Diapers & Wipes! During our trip to Costco last week, we decided it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get ahead of the game and stock up on some of those baby necessities.
Best Quote from the Daddy-to-be: I don’t have any good quotes for Justyn this week… but not to worry, he’s promised that he will have a couple of “good ones” this week so that I can “double up on ’em” for the next post.
