Chugging right along and feeling awesome.
Date: September 24, 2014
How far along: 32 weeks
Fruit size comparison: Last week was a coconut, but we’ll leave it at that because I really don’t think a head of lettuce is 4lbs. Silly baby people.
Maternity clothes: Starting to need the shirts, not just the pants. But still wearing regular dresses, as long as the length is forgiving enough.
Sleep: Like a rock. It’s like my body knows that the situation will be changing soon and is helping me put as much into the sleep bank as possible.
Craziest dream: Lately they’ve been rather violent. So I won’t share those, because they aren’t fun.
Best moment this week: Two “girls nights out” in two weeks, plus a baby shower for a friend and time to catch up with former coworkers. Enjoying the ease of just showing up to things without needing to find a sitter or worry about naps, feedings, poopy diapers, etc.
Sickness/aches: Knock on wood, I’ve been feeling the best I’ve felt in a while. My back pain has mostly subsided, I’m sleeping really consistently, and some days I have enough energy that I almost forget that I’m pregnant. Of course, other days I’m irritable and sore all over, so I guess I’m just speaking for today, when my biggest complaint is some arm pain from the Tdap vaccine.
Cravings: None this week.
Miss anything: All the free champagne at these girls night PR events! But I always have to drive home so I guess sparkling water is the safest option anyway.
Looking forward to: Enjoying a quiet first wedding anniversary this weekend, then heading to Rochester next weekend for a baby shower and some much-needed time with the family visiting.
