I can’t believe I’m actually posting this picture of me… ugh, yikes. But, I dragged myself off the couch to put on makeup and regular clothes just to take this picture.
Obviously, I haven’t been feeling the best. Things kinda took a turn for the worse last Wednesday and nothing has changed for the better since then. Sleep is terrible, my sciatic nerve pain is back, upset stomach and well, you name it – I feel it. I hate to complain so much… I really am looking forward to the baby’s birth and I’m very excited that we are getting so close now! My symptoms are giving us hope that something MIGHT be happening sooner rather than later… so, we will see!
Baby is the Size of a: Pumpkin
Gender: It’s a Boy!
Food Cravings: All desserts… and I’ve really started to push the limits on what I can eat with the gestational diabetes. Besides the cheesecake and ice cream, I’ve also been eating peanut m&m’s and sneaking chocolate chips from the pantry. One day last week I was on my way home from work and I stopped at Einstein Bagel’s for a cinnamon bagel cluster which is pretty much just like monkey bread. Whoops! What can I say, I’m only human.
Food Aversions: Nothing in particular, but I really don’t want to eat anymore. I still get hungry, but almost all food sounds rather unappetizing right now. All I really want to eat is fruit and maybe a little toast.
Movement: Yep. Actually, the dog got a little kick from baby yesterday! He was cuddled up with me on the couch, resting his head on my belly when all of a sudden he got a kick right to the jaw. Hahaha! Marley’s reaction was priceless: He jerked back, looked down at my belly and grumbled before laying back down, this time behind my back instead of on top of my belly.
I managed to get a quick picture before he moved, so sweet:
Looking Forward to: My new last day of work is this Friday! I originally had planned to work up until the 15th, but there is no way I’m going to be able to do that. Recently I started trying to work from home for 1/2 days… 9 hours at work with a 45 minute commute each way, that’s just way too much!
Best Quote from the Daddy-to-be: Justyn is so excited to meet his son! It’s really all he talks about anymore. While he was telling me about all of the things he’s looking forward to, he actually said “I can’t wait to change his poopy diapers.” Yep, I’m not going to forget this… I’ll be passing off as many of those as I can!
Newest Baby Item(s): I found a great little onesie at Carter’s this weekend!
It was one of their Doorbusters – only $7
