How I feel – This week I finally got sick for the first time since being pregnant. I thought I was going to make it through the flu season without catching anything. In fact, I think I was just bragging about it to someone last week – shoot! Wednesday and part of Thursday I had a fever and cold symptoms. Now I’m just constantly congested and coughing a little (mostly just a dry throat).
Waddling? - It’s still just a slight waddle.
Total weight gain/loss? – Gained 1 pound this week – now at a 13 pound gain overall.
What do I do when I wake that early? Either surf the web or read a book on my phone. Then, when I know I’m not going to fall back asleep I get out of bed and sort through my pile of magazines I’m weeding out. I’m cutting out a few articles/recipes I want to keep, them I’m going to see if I can give these to someone else who want to read through them.
Movement - YES!! It’s so fun to feel her move and kick. I even felt hiccups for the first time this week!
Wedding ring on or off? - Still on.
Best moment last week? - Shopping at Home Goods with my husband. We walked through the kids section, oooh-ing and mostly aaaah-ing and the pink girly stuff. I took a picture of this adorable rocking chair:
but when I checked back just 2 days later it was already gone!! Oh well, she wouldn’t have enjoyed the rocking chair for a while yet….but it would have looked really cute in her nursery!
What we DID buy at Home Goods:
- 4 adorable fabric bins (2 which we had to return since they were 1/4″ too wide)
- 20 baby pink hangers!!
Cravings – No cravings this week. Too sick to enjoy food for the most part. The night I had the fever I asked for ice cream, but my husband suggested I just finish my meal which I had put aside and forgotten. So, I finished my spaghetti instead.
What I am looking forward to - Working on putting the nursery together. Step 1 – covering the blue glider we have!
Our little “June Bug’s” Growth
We’ve been taking photos since week 6 and showing a fruit or vegetable in the picture that is the same size as our little “June Bug”. Last week: our little girl was 10.5 inches in length (carrot) and three quarters of a pound in weight. This week: 11 inches long and 1 pound in weight. (Picture to come soon – I’ve been too sick/busy to take a picture.)
