Not much has happened since last week. It's too hot for me to even think about going outside, and with #MFE picking up a second job, I've been pretty solidly couch-potatoing. I did start watching season 7 of "The Good Wife" and it's rekindled how much I love Alicia Florrick. I'm also on book three of the Harry Potter series and am making some serious progress through that.
As promised, I'm taking a page out of my rad homie Cris from Kiss My Tulle's book (who took a page from Little Baby Garvin) and will do my damndest to post weekly updates ... because someone out there might give a shit and want to know what's going on with this whole thing.
How far along? 34 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I weighed in at 166.7 last week, so that puts me at 25 lbs total gain, plus or minus a couple.
Maternity clothes? It's been hot as hell, so I've been all about these tanks from Target andshorts -- also from Target. I also picked up a couple of these nursing bras, (because I just can't with underwire anymore) and they're super comfs.
Stretch marks? Yeah, I think I've got a couple.
Sleep: Weird and intense. So many trips to the bathroom, and I've woken up drooling a few times, which is abnormal for me. I'm still sleeping really intensely in the mornings -- and even managed to sleep until 9:30 yesterday!
Best moment this week: We got to put together a great Star Wars mobile gifted to us by our dear friends (thanks, Hawkinses!).
Miss Anything? Being able to move around like a normal person.
Movement: Homeboy things it's real big fun to jam himself right up under my ribcage. I assure, you, it's not as fun as he thinks it is.
Food cravings: Topo Chico still reigns. I've also been wanting chocolate chip cookies pretty regularly, and yesterday brought a hardcore KFC craving (gimme dat cole slaw and original recipe!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: I got really sick after eating spaghetti with meat sauce the other night, but I think the sauce may have been off.
Gender: Still a dude.
Labor Signs: Hell no. Thank goodness.
Belly Button in or out? It's kind of a halfie.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but I think that's because I'm super stubborn and refuse to take it off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy, though there's still some anxiety about getting everything in order. I know things will fall into place (or they won't, and I'll just have to be OK with it), but I like to be prepared.
Looking forward to: I'm getting a mani-pedi tomorrow! I got a killer deal on Groupon for both at about half the price at the place recommended by friends. I haven't had polish on my toes in over a month because I can barely reach them, so yay!
We got another couple of care baskets full of stuff for #babything, complete with a couple of really soft snuggly blankets (that both have elephants on them) that I think solves my blankie dilemma. We need to shore up the supplies for changing / feeding (nursing pillow, trash can with a pedal-close lid, wipes, etc.), but I think we're pretty much there as far as the necessities go.
