Baby P #2 Bump Watch: 32 Weeks Preggers

32 Weeks

What is up with Baby P #2 this week?

  • Baby P weighs about 3 3/4 pounds and measures about 16.7 inches long and is about the size of a jicama!
  • I’m gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to Baby P.
  • She’s going to gain about 1/3 of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb.
  • She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair.
  • Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

 

What’s been happening with ME this week?

Weight Gained: Had my doctor appointment on August 2nd. I gained approximately 8 lbs from my last appointment at the end of June. Total weight gained since start of pregnancy: 25 lbs. Keep your fingers crossed… trying not to gain any more than I really have to.

Workouts: ha! This prego lady ain’t doing anything extra walking or lifting outside of what I do at work as well as trying to keep up with my toddler who won’t let me relax when we get home for the day. So yeah… workouts will resume 6 weeks postpartum thank you very much!

Symptoms: 

  • Just being plain uncomfortable – getting more and more difficult to get up from sitting position, from laying in bed… just difficult to move period.
  • Shortness of breath without even walking much or far… Baby P is really taking up a lot of room in my belly.
  • Raging hormones – major mood swings from one extreme to the next.
  • Fatigue. Super freaking tired on the daily.
  • Carpal tunnel and weird cramping in my hands and feet at the most random times

Food Aversions: none I can think of

Food Cravings: everything sweet and bad for your health. Like root beer floats. And cheese. Lots of it.

Sleep: still able to sleep well. No insomnia here. No restless leg syndrome here. *knock on wood*

Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases? Bought 4 new onesies from work.

And the 4th one – front n back…

How freaking cute is that?!

And from here on out, I will be making purchases for other items I need (and want) for baby. Like new burp rags, wash clothes, bandana bibs, muslin blankets, swaddles, and wearable blankets. And then once I’m on maternity leave, depending on if we get gifts from friends and family, I’ll be finalizing my shopping lists of must haves before Baby P arrives. Lots to do before she arrives!!!

Stretch Marks:  I think I see some new ones. There’s some red marks under what’s supposed to be my belly button. The area itches. I’m pretty sure there will be stretch marks there. *sigh*

Miss Anything?: being able to walk without waddling

Belly Button In or Out?  Very much an outtie

Wedding Rings On or Off? On!

Happy or Moody Most Of The Time? This week? Pretty chill. And happy.

Any Movement? Hell yeah…

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week? Totally drawing a blank here. Guess that means nothing really exciting and new has been going on. Except for the growing belly and the constant reminders that I look like I’m about ready to pop. Yup… at this point in time, it doesn’t even faze me anymore. I kind of agree that I’m huge.
 
Looking Forward To? Going on maternity leave! 3 more weeks!!!

Baby P #2 Bump Watch: 31 Weeks Preggers

31 Weeks

 

And, of course….another cute moment between mother and daughter….

 

 

What is up with Baby P #2 this week?

  • She is measuring over 16 inches long and weighs about 3 1/3 lbs making her about the size of a coconut and is heading into a growth spurt!
  • She can turn her head from side to side, and her arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump up as needed fat accumulates under her skin.
  • She is probably moving a lot, too, which can make sleeping a bit difficult because her kicks and somersaults may keep me up – which I don’t mind because that just means Baby P is active and healthy!

 

What’s been happening with ME this week?

Weight Gained: will give an update in the next post! Since my doc appointment happened at the start of my 32nd week

Workouts: workout? What’s that?

Symptoms: 

  • Major drooling. Yup. Gross but true. I didn’t realize it was pregnancy related but I noticed the drooling for about the last month or so? I don’t usually drool but it never dawned on me that it could be pregnancy related until I saw some article about pregnancy symptoms pop up on my FB newsfeed. But yeah… makes sense. Extra saliva = drooling problems. Go figure.
  • Aches and pains. All over.
  • Pregnancy brain. It’s real yo!
  • Cankles. Swollen because of the heat.
  • Frequent trips to the restroom.
  • Extreme fatigue.

Food Aversions: none

Food Cravings: 

  • Nacho Cheese Doritos w/sour cream
  • Fried chicken. Like country fried yumminess.

Sleep: still pretty good. Even with the bathroom trips, I’m able to go right back to sleep.

Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases? we ordered our maternity photos! Gotta say… our toddler stole the show. As far as baby stuff… will be making purchases in the weeks to come. She’ll be here before we know it… we need to buy some things before that happens.

Stretch Marks: still no new ones.

Miss Anything?: just being able to get in and out of bed with ease!!! Ohhhh the simple things in life we take for granted.

Belly Button In or Out? I think after this pregnancy, it may never go back in 😂

Wedding Rings On or Off? It came off for a couple of days because the heat just made my fingers swell. But they’re back on!

Happy or Moody Most Of The Time? I would say it was an emotional one. Just a few issues that I can thank my raging hormones for sure. There were some tears shed. Some moments of emotional outbursts. And then even some sadness. I won’t go into detail about the chain of events that led to this emotional rollercoaster ride but I think it’s something that started off very early on in this pregnancy that I just tried to push to the back of my mind. And then I think the anxiety of my fast approaching due date triggered something that just sent me into a state of emotional instability… it wasn’t pretty. But I’m good now.

Any Movement? Yes! Non-stop! She’s definitely running out of room!

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week? Probably the only fun thing this week was getting to see the digital gallery of our maternity shoot and picking out our favorites! I’m looking forward to getting them in the mail so I can put them out on display!

Maternity Collage

Looking Forward To? Going shopping for this baby of mine. Even though we have a lot of things from Ella, there’s still some things we need for our #2. Some people might think we don’t need more stuff but I beg to differ. So I’m excited to go on a little shopping spree for this little princess.

Baby P #2 Bump Watch: 30 Weeks Preggers

Holy cow!!! It’s sooooo freaking crazy how quickly time has whizzed by. The next 10 weeks will go by even quicker, I just know it. I will be going on maternity leave at the end of August and then Baby P #2 may make her appearance as early as 2 weeks after that. Her sister definitely didn’t wait till 40 weeks to come, that’s for sure. It’s exciting, no doubt… but I’m definitely starting to feel nervous about it all.

On to my weekly update….

30 Weeks


What is up with Baby P #2 this week?

  • Baby P is about 15.7 inches long and weighs almost 3 lbs – about the size of a large cabbage!
  • She is surrounded by a pint and a half of amniotic fluid, but will lessen as she gets bigger and takes up more space in my uterus.
  • Her eyesight is continuing to develop, though it’s not very keen. Her eyes will be closed for a good part of the day after she is born.
  • When she does open them, she’ll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face.

 

What’s been happening with ME this week?

Weight Gained: I will let you know after I’ve had my next appointment which is set for Wednesday, August 2nd!

Workouts: Of course! Every single day at work. Some people don’t think my job is physical, but it really is. This is what I do on the daily:

  • some strength training – lifting and moving mannequins, fixtures, and other visual elements at work. And don’t worry, I’m very careful with it all!
  • cardio – walking up and down stairs, walking back and forth between 2 buildings (I work at a location that has 2 buildings in 1 mall). Consistently for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Anything else outside of work is just “extra”. And no I haven’t done “extra” workouts in a hot minute.

Symptoms: 

  • Slight nausea
  • Swelling in the feet
  • Mild heartburn and yucky tasting burps!
  • The worst leg cramp ever happened the night going into my 31st week! So painful!

Food Aversions: fast food

Food Cravings: donuts

Sleep: I don’t have any trouble falling asleep… but it really is starting to get very uncomfortable moving in bed especially when I want to roll over. And it’s difficult getting out of bed!

Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases? No baby stuff yet but totally related! I bought an ottoman pouf to go with a rocker my father-in-law gave me after I had Ella. I’m planning on painting it white over the weekend and I still need to buy a 2-piece cushion for it. So I’ll post up some pics of it once I’m done. I won’t get the pouf until next week but here’s what it looks like…

And I finally did our registry! My sister is in the process of designing my Baby Sprinkle invites so I needed to make sure I finished registering before the invites went out.

Stretch Marks: I think there’s some about to appear… it’s been itching just under the belly button. I’ve been lathering up like crazy!!!

Miss Anything?: just about everything that has to do with not being pregnant!

Belly Button In or Out? Out

Wedding Rings On or Off? On!

Happy or Moody Most Of The Time? Happy as can be.

Any Movement? Heck yes! She doesn’t stop. Ever!

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week? not a one. I’ve been pretty boring this week. Just enjoying every minute of free time I get with my only child till life gets even more chaotic!

Looking Forward To? The weekend! I want to continue nesting… cleaning and organizing. And I’m hoping to be able to paint my rocking chair!!!

Baby P #2 Bump Watch: 28 Weeks Preggers

Oh whaaaat?! I am officially in my 3rd trimester!!! How crazy is that? I still have a ways to go but man oh man… I can’t believe how close we are to meeting this little human being! I have been feeling a little anxious about going through childbirth again. I’ll most likely be writing another post about that soon.

Anyway… let’s get on with my weekly update shall we?

 

28 Weeks

 
And, of course, my weekly Bump pics wouldn’t be complete without my little monster wanting in on the action…

 


 

What is up with Baby P #2 this week?

  • Baby P #2 weighs 2 1/4 lbs and measures 14.8 inches from head to toe which makes her about the size of a large eggplant!
  • She can blink her eyes, which should have lashes now
  • Her eyesight is developing, which means she may be able to see the light that filters in through my womb!
  • She’s continuing to develop billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

 

What’s been happening with ME this week?

Weight Gained: Don’t know. Won’t know till my doc appointment in the beginning of August.

Workouts: Lots and lots of walking. At work. At the mall.

Symptoms: 

  • Minor leg cramps
  • some major waddling
  • aches and pains everywhere from my waist down
  • fatigue
  • frequent trips to the bathroom (story of my life!)
  • headaches
  • nose bleed (happened once at night, out of the blue)
  • some dizzy episodes

Food Aversions: I don’t know what is going on with my taste buds but everything just doesn’t taste the good anymore. I have a bad after taste in my mouth after I eat anything. But no food aversions.

Food Cravings: Nacho cheese Doritos and sour cream. Go figure.

Sleep: No much. Not by choice. With the 4th of July celebrations and trying to get back into our routines after not having our toddler for 2 weeks, it’s been a crazy exhausting week. 5-6 hours of sleep for me…combined with the heat wave that we are going through makes for some crappy sleeping patterns. Plus I had to work on Sunday morning so I didn’t get to sleep in much at all.

Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases? We went shopping for maternity photo shoot attire! No easy task, but we managed to purchase some sandals for the monster, a few shirts for the hubster, and a couple of dresses for me. I still need to find a couple more things for the hubs and the baby. So I’m hoping to accomplish that this week at work.

Stretch Marks: none. *knock on wood*

Miss Anything?: being skinny and fit. I hated trying on clothes this weekend. I didn’t like the way I looked in anything.

Belly Button In or Out? Out, out, out!

Wedding Rings On or Off? On!

Happy or Moody Most Of The Time? Happy! Moody when I’m at work because well… it’s work. It’s hot and people get on my nerves. Ah well.

Any Movement? Yes! And the movements are starting to hurt!

Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week? Nothing worth reporting here… not this week anyway. Maybe next week…

Looking Forward To? Our maternity photo shoot this Friday!!!

37 Weeks

Home stretch baby!!! We’ve reached the 37 week mark! Which means, Baby P can come any day now! I’m hoping she decides to stay in the belly till her due date, but if she wants to come early, then that’s completely fine, too! Everyone is anxious to meet her and so are we. So this could potentially be one of the last pregnancy posts from yours truly… well, until Baby #2 😉



37 weeks 002
37 weeks



What Baby P’s Been Up To This Week…

  • Baby P weighs 6 1/3 lbs and measures a bit over 19 inches head to heel…about the size of a of a bunch of Swiss chard.
  • She may also be born with a full head of hair
  • Her lungs and brain are continuing to mature in these last couple of weeks



What I’ve Been Up To This Week…

Weight Gained: hopefully not too much! Being on maternity leave, in this heat, has made me lazy. Work kept me super active. All I’ve done at home is clean and watch shows on Netflix.



Workouts: Walks around the neighborhood with the pups. When it cools down in the evenings, the hubs and I take them out for a nice stroll.



 Symptoms:

  • Mild headaches – I’m blaming it all on Southern California’s heat. Triple digit heat is just not the greatest weather conditions to endure during pregnancy.
  • Nosebleed – again, I blame the heat as well as being pregnant.
  • Dizziness – I always have dizzy spells when the weather heats up. Don’t know why but I do. And I’m blaming pregnancy too.
  • Aches and pains in the back, legs, lower abs and groin area. Doing chores and just being on my feet for short amounts of time just kills me.
  • Fatigue
  • Occasional Braxton Hicks? Honestly don’t know if that’s what I feel but sometimes when I stand up from sitting for awhile, there’s tightness and pain in the lower ab area and I’m just guessing that’s what it is. *shrug*
  • Slight nausea after eating…not to mention, taste buds are out of whack. What I mean by that is… EVERYTHING I eat leaves a weird taste in my mouth.
  • Mild swelling in feet and ankles.
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Extreme laziness and exhaustion!!!!
  • Frequent potty breaks!!!



Food Aversions: None



Food cravings: Watermelon!!!



Sleep: Definitely starting to get uncomfortable. The belly is just heavy. And having to lay on my side… the weight of the belly makes it feel like it’s about to fall off! Once I find a comfy position, I have no problem falling asleep. But I’m still getting up 2-3 times a night to use the potty, and getting in and out of bed is quite challenging.



Any Baby/Pregnancy Related Purchases? No, but continuing to receive gifts for Baby P! Gift cards, of course. And received a gift from a friend in Hawaii. It’s a car seat cover/canopy set from Car seat Canopy… And I cannot wait to use it!



car seat canopy



Stretch Marks? And with less than 3 weeks left to go, I think I see stretch marks. Which I’m depressed about. They’re red right now…and it’s hard to really tell if they are really stretch marks. I guess lathering it up with lotions and oils every day didn’t help me at all…and as vain as I sound right now, I’ll eventually get over it and accept it. And that doesn’t mean I love Baby P less or hate being pregnant…so for those of you reading this who are criticizing and judging me right now, just don’t. I’m sure I will wear these marks as a badge of honor but for now, just let me sulk. Watching my body change and transition has been both amazing and yet difficult at times. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.



Miss Anything? With Baby P nearing her due date, I am already missing the thought and idea of her being in my belly. Feeling her movements first thing in the morning, all throughout the day, and the last thing before I sleep at night… I’m going to miss that. I love her and can’t wait to meet her…but the time spent being pregnant with my baby girl will be missed.



Belly Button In or Out? Out!



Wedding Rings On or Off? I haven’t put them on since that one day… My hands aren’t swollen but I don’t want to take the chance of having my rings get stuck on my finger.



Happy or Moody Most of the Time? Happy! And just irritable because of the heat.



Any Movements? She is active all the time! I love watching her movements. Makes me smile.



Looking Forward To? The next doc appointment… to see Baby P and find out if we are progressing nicely! Hubby and I have been counting down!

36 Weeks

36 weeks pregnant and totally in nesting mode!!! Officially went on maternity leave June 11th. Been trying to get everything in order in our tiny little space… sorting Baby P’s clothes and just organizing and getting everything ready for her arrival. All the while, she continues to bake inside my ever growing belly.


And this is me, looking absolutely exhausted and just homely in loungewear…

36 Weeks


Gotta love it.


What Has Baby P Been Up To This Week? At my 36 week check up, Doctor said Baby P is healthy and right on target! She is already head down and in position for whenever she’s ready to come. That’s exciting news, no doubt… but I can’t help but feel a little nervous, too!!!

  • Baby P is still packing on the pounds (about an ounce a day) and is now almost 6 lbs and more than 18.5 inches long – about the size of a head of romaine lettuce.
  • She is shedding most of the downy hair that covers her body as well as the vernix caseosa – the waxy substance that protects the skin during its nine-month bath in amniotic fluid.
  • Baby P swallows this stuff, along with other secretions, which forms a tar-like black substance called meconium, which Baby P will pass in her first bowel movements.
  • At the end of this week, she will be considered “early term.” Full term is 39-40 weeks. And she is most likely in head-down position.


What’s Been Happening With ME This Week?

Weight Gained: Up another 4 pounds. Whew. Thought I was gonna be up another 10 lbs the way I’ve been eating!!! That brings us to a total of approximately 30 lbs gained so far (from my last pre-pregnancy weight check). I’m ON TARGET so I’ll take it!!!


Workouts: Lots and lots and lots of walking!!! And even that gets painful after only a few minutes of it.


Symptoms: 

  • Flintstone feet! Chubby toes and swollen feet… gotta love the last stages of pregnancy combined with this horrible SoCal heat!!!!
  • Aches in the groin area! Yup… that, too, comes with the territory!
  • And because of the aches in that very sensitive area, I’m officially waddling everywhere! Even getting out of bed is difficult.
  • Baby has definitely dropped. How do I know? I can now breathe a lil easier (yay!). But the sucky part is? She’s lower in the lady part region so a lot of her movements hurt. Oh well. Just a little bit longer!!!
  • Exhaustion level is about quite the same.
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pregnancy brain for sure
  • And this is a given: frequent trips to the potty!!! (sarcastic much?)



Food Aversions: Asian Food. Because after I eat it, it throws my taste buds out of whack and everything else I eat afterwards just doesn’t sit well with my belly.



Food Cravings: Nothing in particular. Maybe that whole deal is over? I dunno, we’ll see right?



Sleep: Pretty darn good now that I get to sleep in past 4am!!!! Oh the things we as adults get excited about!



Any Baby/Pregnancy Related Purchases? Oh yes. Quite a few actually. So with all the gift cards we received from the shower, we bought things we didn’t get: receiving blankets, towels, socks, mittens, diaper cloths, and other necessities. And even after all of that, we still have a good amount of gift cards leftover (Baby P is set for awhile!).

And then I had to buy some things for me. Stuff for my hospital bag. A new robe, some pajama bottoms, new slippers, nursing bras, nursing pads, and a bunch of toiletry items (you know, those little bottles they sell for travel so I don’t have lug around my regular bottles of shampoo and stuff).

After all that shopping, I thought we were finally set and ready to go. I figured, now all I have to do is ALL of Baby P’s laundry, pack mine and hubby’s hospital bag, and then clean, clean, CLEAN right? Wrong. When I was done with Baby P’s laundry, I decided to get her infant car seat all cleaned and installed into our car so that we would have one less thing to worry about when the time comes. The car seat given to us by my lil sis-in-law who kept it in really good condition. Except, when I went to clean it and put it together (the harness straps had been disassembled so she could wash the car seat cover before putting it away in storage), I realized that one of the metal pieces that actually holds the strap in place was missing. Go figure. We tried to see if we could order the part online but everyone who ever carries this part is out of stock and would take anywhere from 6 weeks plus to have it delivered. Yeah we ain’t got time for that! So… we went out and bought a brand new infant car seat.



carseat

NOW, it is safe to say… we are ready (baby gear-wise) for Baby P!!!!



Stretch Marks: None, nada, zilch! Let’s keep it that way!



Miss Anything: Everything I’ve ever mentioned in any of my prior blog posts



Belly Button In or Out: OUT!



Wedding Rings On or Off: Haven’t tried to put them back on yet.



Happy or Moody Most of the Time: Definitely happy. A little emotional at times. But hey, I’m pregnant and I’m allowed to get emotional.



Any Movements? Yep. She loves to beat me up from the inside!



Fun and/or Interesting Things From The Week? Not that this is baby-related, but it definitely is worth something to mention! While Baby P may not have seen this event take place, she definitely heard every bit of it. She was able to witness, in her own special way, her daddy graduate with honors from college! Such a great accomplishment for him as well as his little growing family. We (both Baby P and I) could not be more proud. So many awesome things happening in our lives, how could I not share it with the world?

Looking Forward To:  Relaxing once I’m done with all this cleaning and organizing. Enjoying this little “vacation” before this Baby comes. And, of course, counting down to Baby P’s arrival.

35 Weeks

We’ve made it to 35 weeks! Eeeeek! Baby P will be here in approximately 5 weeks!!!! I sure hope she decides to stay in long enough for me to enjoy a 4-week break from work!


35 weeks



So What Has Baby P Been Up To This Week?

  • With not much room to maneuver now, Baby P is over 18 inches long and weighs about 5 1/4 pounds.
  • She is the size of a honeydew melon!
  • Because she is so snug in my womb, Baby P isn’t likely to be doing dramatic somersaults anymore, but the number of movements I feel should remain about the same.
  • Her kidneys are fully developed now and her liver can process some waste products
  • The basic physical development is now mostly complete – her main job over the next few weeks is to put on weight! (oh dear)



What’s Been Happening With Me This Week?

Weight Gained: Friday June 12th is my 36 week checkup. I’ll know then!



Workouts: Screw it. I didn’t work out at home at all. But you know what? I get enough of a workout at work. I sit at a desk to check email and look at directives maybe 5% of my work day and the rest of it is being out on the sales floor or in our Visual work room working on stuff, so I’d say that’s being pretty active to me.



Symptoms: No new symptoms (thank God)… but these are what I’ve experienced in my 35th week…

  • Exhaustion
  • Pregnancy Brain
  • Frequent potty breaks all day and all night
  • Very little swelling in the feet and ankles
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Aches and pain in the groin area
  • JUST BEING VERY VERY PREGNANT!!! 🙂



Food Aversions: None. I love food!



Food Cravings: Just a couple. Pizza and donuts. Of course not together. But I believe National Donut Day happened during this week so all the talk about donuts in the media just made me want one. Or two. Hehe.



Sleep: Still good! Yay!



Any Baby/Pregnancy Related Purchases? Yep. After realizing that Baby P could come as early as 37 weeks, I kinda freaked out because I sure as heck did not feel like we have EVERYTHING we need to accommodate Baby P once she’s here. So on Sunday, hubby and I went down to Babies R Us to purchase our stroller and a co-sleeper bassinet. The stroller we had originally put on our registry was one we thought we truly wanted. But after the baby shower, I started to feel like maybe we didn’t research and compare hard enough. So I spent the entire week researching strollers online – different sites and YouTube. And let me tell you, that was just exhausting to me. I’d go back and forth between 2 or 3. I just wanted to make sure that the stroller fit our lifestyle. I mean, we don’t have big cars so trunk space is limited. We wanted something that was lightweight and versatile. We definitely wanted a stroller that would grow with our family – I mean we plan on having at least one more baby in the next couple of years. Of course we didn’t want to break the bank on this purchase but if we felt it would be a good investment then we were willing to spend a little more on it. Anyway, we spent 2 hours in the store test driving our old choice (the GB Evoq) and then 2-3 others we liked. And at the end of the 2 hours, we finally chose the Baby Jogger City Select stroller. And we couldn’t be happier with our choice.


babyjogger003


babyjogger001 babyjogger002



And we can’t forget the co-sleeper bassinet! Baby P won’t be sleeping with us in our bed because our bed isn’t big enough and I just have a feeling my furbaby Tipsy wouldn’t like it very much. But I still want Baby P close enough to me so I can sneak a peek at her while she’s sleeping and also be able to nurse her when she gets hungry through the night. And since our bed is pretty high off the ground, we thought this one would be ideal. It even swivels on its base, so that’ll make it easier for me to get in and out of bed for bathroom trips.


HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper

Stretch Marks: With this huge watermelon of a belly that seems to keep growing and growing I am surprised that I am still stretch mark free and I am totally grateful for it!



Miss Anything? Same as everything in the previous posts: Being able to workout hard. Being able to wear whatever I want. All of it.



Belly Button In or Out? An outtie. Definitely.



Wedding Rings On or Off? In my last post I said they came off. Well, the swelling hasn’t been bad this week… my feet were okay. And there were little to no swelling at all in my hands/fingers. But just to be safe, I am keeping the rings off for now.



Happy or Moody Most Of The Time? For the most part, I’m happy. Like on cloud 9 happy. But with the whole thing with the stroller, I definitely had my moments of irritability. Even had a crying fit about it over lunch before we even made it to Babies R Us that day. Yeah, gotta love those pregnancy hormones!



Any Movements? All day every day!



Fun and/or Interesting Things From The Week: Well, it was my last week of work! Woohoo! Maternity Leave started on June 11th for me and June 10th was my last day. My visual team members threw me a mini baby shower and they all chipped in and got me some baby bottles and a sterilizer that were both on our registry.


bottles

 


And a couple of books… 1 to add to Baby P’s growing library…

book001


And then one for hubby and I to enjoy…

book002



But needless to say, I am sooooo glad I’m finally off work. Being on my feet and running around all day just killed me. I had restrictions sure… but even with sitting every hour for 10 minutes on top of my normal breaks weren’t enough for me.



Looking Forward To: Enjoying this time to nest and prep for Baby P! And taking advantage of this pre-baby maternity leave portion to relax and enjoy some me time and some hubby and me time.
