Things feel even more real now that we know we are having a girl. I feel like I can finally start planning/thinking/spoiling her now which clearly leaves me no time to brush my hair.
Changes and thoughts this week:
-I really NEED some salt and vinegar chips. (Thankfully I finally bought some).
-Once I wake up, I wake up for good. This is awesome because it is easier to get up and workout in the morning but isn’t as fun when I get up at midnight to go to the bathroom….good thing Billy doesn’t mind me waking him up to watch Scrubs with me in the middle of the night.
-The kicks are getting a lot bigger.
-I haven’t ran all week. I think the added weight kind of messed with my ankle during the 1/2 marathon last Saturday and so I have been focusing on doing other things. Once I am running again I will be cutting down my mileage to about 30 miles per week to help save my joints.
-Still feeling really energetic and no nausea. Why is it that we get the most sick/tired during the first trimester when no one can tell you are pregnant and therefore think you have just gone crazy and have no idea what is wrong with you?
-Another random craving I have been having are Werther’s hard candy. If you have talked to me in real life the last week then you have probably been able to smell butterscotch anytime you are within 2 feet of me.
-I like to brush my teeth again. The minty taste of toothpaste still drives me crazy and so I tried out Colgate for the baking soda taste and it is perfect!
My mother-in-law is already telling people that the baby looks just like her;)
From her instagram:
Can we talk about how amazing ultrasounds are for a second. Because I am a stress case and worry if I don’t feel the baby move every 12 minutes, the ultrasound really helps make those fears disappear. To be able to see the 4 different chambers of the heart, her brain, her little feet and to know that she weighs more than a lb made me the happiest I have ever been. And now I am officially crying….must end post now to stop my emotional pregnancy tears because I am in a room full of people.
Do your kids look like you? Do they look alike?
What toothpaste brand do you use?
How many ultrasounds did you have during your pregnancy?
