Hope everyone had a good weekend. And for those who noticed that I didn’t post last Wednesday like I normally do, thank you for actually noticing! It’s nice to feel missed. Nothing is wrong … life is just getting busy, so I can’t always post as often as I’d like!
And now for our weekly update!
What is baby Addison doing this week?
According to this website, “Your baby is clocking in at five pounds and could be as tall as 20 inches by now, and the vernix (the white coating protecting your baby’s skin) is getting thicker … In other baby-related developments, those tiny fingernails have probably reached the tips of his fingers by now — and getting ready for that first postpartum manicure.”
- Acid Reflux
- My arms consistently feel like I’ve just done a really hard workout. They feel heavy and fatigued. I have no idea why.
- Shortness of breath
- I just feel … big. My growing belly seems to always be in the way these days.
By the way, I’m not a person who typically likes to show off her stomach, but I found this old picture to be hilarious this week:
I was 10 weeks pregnant in that picture, and at the time, I thought that I was already showing. How delusional was I?!
I’m still able to sleep, but when I get up to use the restroom, I feel like I’m having to roll out of bed, rather than jumping up like I used to.
Cravings/Foods I’m Loving:
I’m still loving cereal and milk. We also got our Girl Scout Cookies in this week, so I’ve been enjoying an occasional Tagalong or Samoa.
Once again, I only got to work out twice this week. We’ve just been so busy after work each day!
Nothing too exciting to report right now. I have another doctor’s appointment on Thursday. And I have my other baby shower this weekend, which I’m really looking forward to!
With only 6 weeks left, I’m starting to feel slightly anxious regarding the list of things that still needs to get done.
In addition to my normal “to-do’s,” I have this list to tackle:
1. Choose a pediatrician
2. Send thank you cards
3. Pack bags for hospital
4. Do hospital tour (and bring registration form)
5. Write out birth plan (ours is pretty minimal, but there’s just a couple of things I want to have in writing, so I don’t forget!)
6. Make list of people to contact when we go into labor
7. Make food to freeze
8. Install baby car seat
9. Buy everything we still need for when Addie comes!
Let’s just hope that this child doesn’t make an early appearance … I need the next 6 weeks to whittle down this list!
Question for ya …
What did you do this weekend?
Thoughts on the “Final 3” on the Bachelor?
I think I’m pulling for Ashley. Anyone else?
