aka Tummy Tuesday #12
So I'm a little behind.
It could be worse.
How far along? 21 weeks.
I'm pretty sure my bump got bigger this week.
In fact, everything on me has gotten bigger.
Except for my bladder, unfortunately.
My hair is even out of control long.
Sleep? It's been pretty decent this week. I've stopped taking daily
naps so I know that's helped. I'm not as exhausted 24/7 like I was before.
Best moment this week? Starting on the nursery! It's so exciting that it's
slowly coming together. And I'm proud that we have started on it so early.
I want to get it completed so that we can focus on other things before baby
Miss anything? Being independent. I hate asking people to help me
do things. Like pick something up for me or carry something heavy.
I'll be so glad when I am back to normal.
Movement? Yes. The girls and FH still haven't felt him but hopefully
that will happen soon. :)
Size of the baby? a spaghetti squash. 8 in, 1 lbs. I'm so excited that he
is finally (estimated) to be one whole lb!
Food cravings? Nothing special this week. I'm trying so hard to control
my eating....it's not easy!!
Bed rest? Nope. Although some days when I'm at work, I long for bed rest....
knock on wood. I have been there, done that and it's not pretty.
Limitations? Not being able to help paint the nursery was extremely
annoying to me. I love to paint and having to sit in another room so I
could breathe something other than paint fumes was not a fun limitation!
Pregnancy Symptoms? Nothing new, nothing horrible. I miss seeing
my feet. My swelling has definitely gone down a good bit. I'm glad I'm
not at a constant swollen status. It comes and it goes and when it's here,
it's miserable. So I'm grateful for the occasional relief.
Looking forward to? Seeing the nursery once complete. Our ultrasound
next Tuesday. We go on vacation next Friday and I'm praying that I have
non-fat feet during that weekend. Oh and this might sound crazy, but I'm
really looking forward to the yard sale I'm going to have this weekend.
I need to get rid of some stuff so we have more room in the house...and
I have no reason to hold on to little girl clothes anymore.
I'm gonna be honest and tell you that I have had a tough time this week.
I feel like every other day someone makes a comment on how huge this
baby is going to be or how I look like I am due next week. It's hurtful.
It's not nice. I think most people don't have bad intentions with these
comments, but it doesn't make it any better. I'm so grateful to have this
bump, no matter how huge it is. I'm grateful that I have a healthy baby
growing inside of me, no matter how uncomfortable it makes me. But
I'm also not responsible for smacking people if they keep making comments.
And when out in public from now on, I swear I'm just going to start telling
people that I'm due in like October or something so I don't have to deal.
That, and I'm working up the courage to come back with a "and when are
YOU due??" just so some women can realize they should be nice. :)
Happy Hump Day Friends!
