I decided it was time to put together a side by side comparison of these biweekly photos and I just love how this turned out! It’s so much fun to look back and see how me and the baby have grown. What’s really funny now is that I actually thought I was “showing” at 12 weeks. Ha! Not really.
Baby is the Size of a: Cantaloupe!
Food Cravings: All food! Doesn’t really matter what it is, I’m just hungry.
Food Aversions: Still, it’s those disgusting onions.
Movement: I really can’t believe just how much he is moving around in there! The other day I thought I was having a muscle spasm in my stomach. I put my hand on that spot and quickly realized it was just the baby, kicking the same spot over and over again. Maybe he had a bad case of the hiccups?
Maternity Clothes: I’m already getting tired of the few maternity clothes I have for work. I feel like I wear the same 5 outfits each week, and they’re all getting more and more uncomfortable! Waking up in the morning is hard enough, then I start thinking about what I need to wear for whatever meeting I have that day. Ugh! I’ve never in my life hated clothes like I do now.
Best Moment of the Week: Spending the weekend at our new home with the 3 guys who make me the happiest girl in the world: Justyn, Marley and Baby Kearney. My heart is overflowing! 🙂
Worst Moment of the Week: My mood swings are just terrible! I wish there was something I could do to avoid these… like maybe every time I feel I’m getting frustrated I could grab a bar of chocolate and find a dark cold room to lay down. Then I could light a smelly candle and listen to some calming music.
Too bad there’s not enough chocolate in the world to solve this problem! At least a girl can dream, right?
Looking Forward to: We have another doctor’s appointment tomorrow! I always look forward to our appointments. I love our doctor (she makes me laugh) and I love hearing that little heartbeat!
Best Quote from the Daddy-to-be: “This isn’t an eating contest, babe… you don’t need to try to see how much food you can eat from the fridge!”
As I already mentioned, I’m hungry… like all of the time! Then, I made the mistake of weighing myself after a night full of food indulgences. I told Justyn I had gained 4 pounds in the last 3 weeks. He was quick to remind me that the doctor said I should only gain 1 pound per week until the baby is born.
Don’t worry, he’s not really serious about this! Just giving me a hard time. Plus, I think his ego might be hurt a little now that I can put down nearly as much food as him! 🙂
Newest Baby Item(s): I ordered a few things to decorate the nursery!
I’m in love with these two pieces of artwork from Loxly Hollow on Etsy:
And, I ordered this wall decal quote from Household Words on Etsy:
