Baby Girl’s Activity: We are reaching full capacity here, folks! She is taking up a lot of real estate at the moment. Even with the tightness I feel in my abdomen, she still seems to have room to move around. I feel her the most on my drive to work. I usually pray – out loud – on the way to work, so maybe its the sound of my voice? Or perhaps, she is just waking up. Regardless, there is no denying she is in there!
Body Feels: Ugh, acid reflux is the real deal during pregnancy, and it is NO FUN! This
exciting pregnancy symptom started about 3 weeks ago. It disappeared for a few days and I was overjoyed. But then, it came back!
Total Weight Gain: 31.6 lbs (lost a little “vacation weight”)
Wearing: During the summers, we are allowed to wear jeans everyday to work. However, I only have 2 pairs of maternity jeans. Not to mention, pants are WAY TOO hot for me right now. So, I just choose the most comfortable “work appropriate” thing I can find each day – although I still feel uncomfortable no matter what I wear.
Craving: A cold Jimmy John’s Turkey sub!!
Pondering: I honestly STILL have yet to grasp the fact that I am about to be a parent, FOREVER. I am sure it’s perfectly normal to question your capabilities and how you will cope with all the stress, busyness and change that comes along with a whole new life. It just seems so strange when I stop and really think about it all – I don’t think I will ever fully comprehend it until she is actually here. And then, we will just adjust to our “new normal”, right? Wonder how long that will take.
Nursery Progress: We found a changing table on Craigslist this weekend and picked it up yesterday. It is perfect and we got it at a great price! We also finally ordered our rocker/recliner. I cannot wait until it arrives – delivery should be in 2 weeks or so. Shout outs to my parents, my husband’s parents and my sister and brother-in-law for purchasing the rocker/recliner for us!! We truly appreciate your love and generosity!!!
My sweet female co-workers threw a surprise Baby Shower for me this week – they spoiled Baby Girl Peters with lots of cute gifts, and they all went in together and bought her high chair! Big thanks to all you ladies!!!
