When I was working full time, I dreaded Mondays but I kind of like them now. We all get back into a regular routine and it’s a nice, fresh start to the week. Am I the only one? Of course, I love weekends too. This one was especially relaxing. We soaked it up because the next three in a row are packed!
I’m linking up with Katie today to share what is marvelous. I’m really excited to be kicking off the third trimester- I feel ready to meet this baby. Of course, there are a few more things we need to do and it’s probably a good thing that we have 10-13 more weeks, but time is flying and I’m not complaining!
What else is happening:
How far along: 27 weeks, 3 days
Total weight gain: up 13 lbs (weight gain slowed the last few weeks- same thing happened at this stage of pregnancy with L but I know it will pick up again in the 3rd trimester)
Maternity clothes: Just starting to figure out what spring/summer items I have that will work… I’m hoping to make due with long tanks and skirts once summer hits!
Sleep: This week was rocky. I keep waking up at 4am and then lay awake for an hour or two. I hope it’s just a phase.
Miss anything: Sleeping on my belly!
Movement: Yes! Still my favorite part of pregnancy.
Food cravings: Nothing was appealing this week… especially if I cooked it. All I really wanted was cereal or chocolate although I continued to eat as many healthy meals as possible. Again, hoping it’s just a phase!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular but I have been feeling more nauseous this week.
Have you started to show yet: Yep! I’m carrying this baby so differently than L- I feel like I’m getting more of the “basketball” look than I did with her, which is fun. Is that another possible sign that it’s a boy?
Gender: We’ll find out in 10-12 weeks.
Happy or moody most of the time: I bounce between the two extremes of ecstatically happy and exhausted/moody. Generally more happy than not.
Looking forward to: A beach trip with girlfriends this weekend!
What are some of the myths about carrying a boy vs girl? Just curious.
What was something marvelous in your weekend?
