|early morning Saturday pic ~ no face! ha! On my way to the pool with the little ones :)|
Weight Gain: I'm up +18 lbs. WHOA WHOA WHOA I'm still wearing anything and everything. ;) Regular dresses, maternity dresses, maternity pants/shorts, regular tops, maternity tops...
Gender: It's a GIRL! Harper Alan
What's Baby up to?: Baby girl's eyes are beginning to open!! Baby is able to really see, although it's dark in there. I can also notice when it's super bright (like using a flashlight on my belly!) she will move a lot and move a lot when she hears loud, unexpected noises. She can also blink!
Movement: She moves all the time! She moves any time I am sitting, always early in the morning and late at night. She's also getting pretty predictable in moving when I sit or lay in certain positions. I feel her rolling up and down my belly a lot now, and what seems like a little foot or hand jabbing up close to my ribs. Brian and I think she's finally moving up a little and not sitting so low just by the look of how I'm carrying her now. I can feel her when she kicks my bladder - and basically - get out of my way! ha! Her kicks are kind of hard, but I don't mind!
Cravings: Just anything really. And yes, desserts. I'm noticing I need to eat a lot more than normal - which I sort of never realized before since I've always liked to eat and ate a lot.
Sleep: Same thing...Not really sleeping at all. About an hour at a time with about 30 minutes of awake time in between.
Symptoms: Mild Mood Swings;) Does that count as one?! Leg Cramps & little bumps are forming all over my body?!
Nursery: Although I know a lot of people don't get their nursery done until right before the baby ~ that's just not me. If I could have had it my way, I would have had the whole thing done a MONTH ago. :( I'm still waiting on Brian to paint the nursery so we can finally pick up our furniture that's been ready for forever and I can start the actual decorating and crafting things in the room. I have a pretty big project to work on once the paint and furniture is in the room, so I'm wanting to get started on it quickly! Believe me, if I could smell/be around the paint, I would be painting myself!
