Friday’s ultrasound was amazing (but short). She was moving around, but the technician was able to get a good view of her head which, at the last ultrasound, was too low in my pelvic region to look at. She’s perfect.
Baby size: A flaugnarde, which is a really funny word for a simple fruit filled dessert made in a pan
Cravings: Still hungry. Will ingest most foods. Especially if they are laced with sugar. My hips, butt, and thighs are pretty close to creating their own gravitational pull as I find myself bumping into things that I normally would miss.
Symptoms: No headaches this week. But a little morning sickness. Blah.
Weight gain: ~ 1.5 pounds and these hips don’t lie
Maternity clothes: I have discovered BETABRAND. They are a kickstarter and make dress pants…but they’re yoga pants. Can I get an AMEN?! I bought two pairs…a regular bootcut dress pant and a maternity pant. And I can wear them both right now. I could probably get away with wearing the dress pant in August…maybe some of September…and then switch to full on maternity for the fall. Still no shorts, but I plan to wear dresses anyway for the rest of summer. My thighs will thank me.
Looking forward to: This week we are finishing the baby closet that Handsome Tay is building from scratch…but all in thanks to my amazing planning (aka Pinterest) ;) We are also spray-painting the crib a matte black color to match the matte black dresser. The nursery will be Scandinavian-ly neutral. My mom and I plan to make a pilgrimage to Charlotte to IKEA for some nursery purchases…wingback chair and ottoman, baskets, and anything else last minute I can think of. We are also going to Nordstroms so I can purchase a much needed maternity bra because I can’t seem to find any decent ones around here that fit. Apparently Nordstrom’s is maternity bra mecca and I figured since we are already in Charlotte, might as well!
