You guys. I look like I’m full term. This is just bananas. I can’t. Just can’t.
Other highlights of this week? Finding the adorable shirt (pictured below) at Kohl’s, and a date night with Derek that included Panera, an argument, and seeing Don Jon. Which was a decent movie, but totally not the plot line we expected. And there were senior citizens in the theater. Awkward.
How Far Along:
Size of baby:
Total Weight Gain:
Remember what I said last week about my stress-induced eating and this week getting ugly for weight gain?
I was right.
Holy mother, I’m up to 20 pounds. FOUR POUNDS IN ONE WEEK. God. Someone please stop this runaway train.
I’m currently on the hunt for a reasonably-priced (read: less than $50), non-hideous maternity coat. I’ll only be pregnant for a small part of cold weather, but it’s long enough for me to consider getting a coat. I tried a few on recently, and they looked so incredibly awful that I almost abandoned all hope. But I’m sure that something is out there! I’m thinking something wool or otherwise comfy, maybe fleece, but fitted and semi-dressy – like, a nice-looking coat. Not a puffer/athletic coat.
I’m still kind of leaning girl.
The baby was kind of quiet last week, but perked up a bit the past few days. AND, Derek felt him/her kick for the first time, which was awesome.
The pee situation at night is getting bad. I’m able to hold out and go once or twice, but it’s always uncomfortable. Constant pee feeling.
What I miss:
Being able to freely drink liquids without worrying about having to go to the bathroom all the time.
God, anything sweet/baked/unhealthy. I still haven’t recovered from last week’s binge and I’m craving muffins, cupcakes, donuts, cookies, and all of that kind of stuff.
Holy balls, totally almost two. We’ve really been struggling with behavior a lot lately. I’m obviously a hormonal mess and have less patience for outbursts than usual, and he’s really been pushing the limits. Of my sanity.
What I’m looking forward to:
Hmm. How about what I’m NOT looking forward to: my blood glucose test that’s scheduled for next week. Yikes.
