Weight Gain: Baby is growing great and starting to put on some adorable chunky baby fat. I imagine he weighs around 5 lbs. now.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely.
Sleep: Waking up more often to use the bathroom and to turn from one side to the other. Brody has been sleeping with me in my bed a lot while Daddy is away, and he actually stays asleep most of the night so that helps me get more rest.
Best Moment of this week: Mostly feeling how active our little man is. We are thankful that Daddy will be staying home with us most of this week because he has a big conference taking place in Charlotte this week involving the U.S. Forest Service.
Movement: He's still pretty active, and since he is head down and lower, he can make mommy a bit uncomfortable sometimes.
Food cravings: Nothing really and my appetite has slowed down a little since I have significantly less room for food. I was really hoping for a Pinkberry fix this month, but we discovered that our only Pinkberry closed. Sigh. I guess that will be one less thing to miss about Charlotte. There isn't another one in the state or anywhere close to us so if you are lucky enough to have one close to you, could you enjoy a little for me please?
Food Aversions: Nothing but reflux has definitely gotten worse lately. Milk and Zantac do still help some, but it can still be a real pain.
What I miss: I think what I miss most is the peace of mind that comes with pregnancies when you have never suffered a loss. Most people really take that for granted.
Gender: Another adorable and quite spunky baby boy. Should be lots of fun!
Symptoms: Mostly just tiredness and some heartburn/reflux.
What I'm looking forward to: Meeting Mattox in less than 5 weeks, finding our new home and getting settled, and just holding our sweet little baby in our arms and hearing those first cries!
|Good news! I finished Mattox's crocheted blanket! I thought the gray border was a nice finishing touch.|
|I have also crocheted Mattox a little hat and diaper cover set, and I may crochet some more things before the month is out. It just gives me something to do since we won't be fully setting up a nursery until we get moved.|
