Nice and Round

       I am getting nice and round these days. The funny thing is that I still feel like I looked at 23 weeks until I look in the mirror or see a picture...or when Matt sees me and comments on how big my belly is (every time he gets home from work). 

Total weight gain/loss: +24
Baby’s Size: size of a durian fruit...whatever that is
Maternity clothes? Leigh Ann gave me her maternity clothes and they have saved me from weeks of being uncomfortable and expanded my wardrobe from the 5 dresses/skirts I would rotate through...thank you thank you...forever grateful!
Stretch marks? No…so thankful
Sleep: Ok
Best moment this week: just taking it all in and starting to thoroughly clean our house together…Matt is such a trooper…seriously, husband of the year!
Miss Anything?  Being able to go outside and sometimes breathe
Movement: All the time…I LOVE it!
Food cravings: Candy corn, chocolate milk, fruit
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope
Have you started to show yet:  Yes…and I think I’m gonna miss my pregnant belly when he is here :(
Gender prediction: A little gentleman (hopefully)!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out?  Still flat and funny looking
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I need to get more organized so my anxiety is more at ease
Looking forward to:  Finishing the nursery, finishing organizing, and our last ultrasound next week!!!!! AHHH!
       Since I can’t go outside, have been busy with the house and junior league, and am hit by large waves of exhaustion lately I have not been exercising as much as before (barely any). I have not been eating as healthy as I normally do either…this NEEDS TO CHANGE! I put on some workout shorts and they felt much tighter than before. I am not going to workout the whole pregnancy and then get lazy right at the end! Heck no!
       Shopping is also proving to be a pain…literally. I used to do all my store runs in one day, all day, and now I have space them out so I can rest. ANNNDD my skin is still bad so I just ordered some soap that I am praying will help with the itchiness…if it does, I will be found outside, on my bike or walking, every single day!
