How far along? 31 weeks
Total weight gain: 14 lbs as of last week, but I have an appointment Tuesday and I'm sure to have gained another 2lbs or so. Gotta love this pound a week deal. It's crazyness, I tell ya.
Maternity clothes? Yes. Wanna know some sad news? One of my favorite maternity jeans were always really tight, but I LOVED them. Well, they now kind of 'hurt' to wear, they are just too small. I went out and bought the exact.same.pair one size bigger yesterday. I don't even care that officially qualifies me as a fatty, it was just necessary. Also? I think I'm retaining water. I've noticed my hands swelling lately.
The ever-growing tum.
Cravings: Granny Smith apples, and honey nut cheerios.
Labor Signs: Just some braxton hicks contractions, my body practicing is all :)
Belly Button in or out? In...just getting flat.
What I miss: my torso...although I try to remember that I am sacrificing my body during this time, and in the grand scheme of things its such a small time. But, I do miss being able to bend down easily, or put my socks on. I'm reeeeeally struggling with socks, so I've been avoiding them.
Weekly Wisdom: Slow down. Take time to relax, somehow. I've been running around like a mad-woman this last week and a half, and it isn't about to slow down yet. But, I just have to sometimes stop and breathe for a minute.
Milestones: In the single digits week-wise left!
Favorite Moments: My kindergarteners JUST noticing yesterday for the first time that I'm pregnant. I see them two times a week, and I never actually told them I'm having a baby. Just yesterday one girl said, "Is that a baby in your tummy?" I told her yes, and she said, "Are you going to take good care of it?" I said, "What do you think?" and she said, "YESSSS!!" I smiled.
Now for some scary-cool proof that someone is growing...
