How far along are you? 25 weeks—it’s hard to believe I’m nearing the third trimester so quickly!
How big is the baby? According to my apps, the baby is around 2 lbs, but obviously I’m not exactly sure.
Maternity clothes? I bought a maternity swimsuit (tankini-style) last week, so I’m really looking forward to getting into the pool once it finally arrives.
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Still exhausted, but waking up more throughout the night.
Best moment this week? We built our registry this weekend, which was a TOTALLY crazy experience, but at the end of it all we were looking through all of the hooded towels and they were just so damn cute. It reminded me that, yes, parenting is going to be crazy and overwhelming, but there will be plenty of adorable moments and memories to make it all worthwhile.
Movement? So much movement! I love it!
Food cravings? Not really!
Food aversions? Nope.
Symptoms? Just fatigue at this point.
Belly button in or out? Out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody? Happy, but emotional. SO emotional. We went to Babies R Us this weekend to build our registry and I ended up crying in the parking lot when we were done because it was so overwhelming. And then I recovered and thought I was good to go, but made the mistake of looking through the gift bag they gave us, saw a container of baby wipes, and started crying again as I exclaimed, “Our first baby wipes!!” Poor Neal—he really deserves some sort of award or prize something. I really don’t know how some women do this alone!
What I miss: Running. Like, really running. What I’m doing now is definitely not ‘running,’ and it’s not really pleasant, either, but I know I’ll get it all back in time.
What I am looking forward to: Being in my pajamas tonight! LOL.
