|Same day... Brooke surfaced (me cold with hair 1/2 up) and Brooke relaxed (after a 2 mile walk at lunch)|
Total weight gain/loss: Yep, Brooke had a growth spurt ... I'm now at +17.4lbs! Great 34 weeks Dr.'s appointment earlier today :)
Maternity clothes? I finally got a pair of black dress pants and a cute pair of gray maternity pants (like a gray khaki/chino) at a consignment store this past weekend. Oh yes, and I wear comfy shoes only... crocs, these little mary janes, yeah having sore feet isn't even worth it anymore.
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: So good! I wish I had time to take naps during the day too :)
Best moment this week: The AMAZING baby shower my Owen Girls threw for me and little Brooke this past Saturday, WHAT A BLESSING! (Girls Bible Study I co-lead with this gal in college)
Miss Anything? Coming home and doing nothing... haha no, seriously, and I know I'll never get that back! With moving to a new house and getting ready for a baby, there's ALWAYS something to do! Her clothes are washed and put away, diapers are organized, crib is made... we're gettin' there!
Movement: Yes, indeed! haha as you see this is what I call "surfacing"... see the huge high lump, yep that's Brooke's butt/back (yeahhhh she'll probably have a tush like her Momma). haha when I drink cold water or move around a lot she "surfaces" to the top of my stomach. It's this hard, protruding lump that stays for a few minutes then floats back down. Glad I could capture it for y'all to see!
Food cravings: No, still nothing!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not at all
Have you started to show yet:YES
Gender: Sugar and spice and everything nice… sweet little Brooke Grayson!
Labor Signs: No and they better stay away until 38 weeks or so. haha the only "cramps" I get are in the morning after I eat breakfast and my stomach and uhhhh intestines are full. Once I relieve myself, the cramping is gone. TMI... I know :)
Belly Button in or out? Still in, but very, VERY flat!
Wedding rings on or off? On, I normally only wear the fake ring on hot/humid days or days I know I will be moving around a lot. Since it's fall now, I may be able to finish up the pregnancy with my rings on! Yay!
Happy or Moody most of the time: So happy! I wish we could get our old house rented and sell our house we flipped, but other than that, we’re patiently awaiting our little girl and ready for the many blessings she is sure to bring to our lives!
Size of Baby:Well baby center says about 5 lbs and 18 inches long, I doubt she’s that big though…
Looking forward to: Being a mom! Pouring my heart and soul into the Lord, and having that love overflow to my AMAZING husband and then having our love given to our daughter :) We can't wait to see how our marriage changes and grows with our new addition! Praying God is in control and will show us his grace and mercy through Brooke's life.
