I am loving my new sun hat. It's weird to love a hat but it's true I do! I really do not like getting color on my face, hello, I do not want wrinkles! This summer I am wearing lots of boring black bathing suits because I am pregnant and I love that this hat is bright and fun!
MMB and I (and Baby B in my tummy) are moving to the 'burbs! We found an awesome town that we love just outside of Boston and couldn't be more excited. We love the house and can't wait to make it our own. We closed yesterday and had a crew in today to start doing work. The house needs some TLC! I see lots of "before and after"blog posts coming up in the future! I need to work on picking out my paint colors ASAP, painters are coming next week! Happy Weekend!
Total Weight Gained/Loss? I have gained a total of 12 pounds! Wow, that is a lot. I might have went a bit overboard with my cravings the first trimester - whoops. I was really sick in the beginning, and when I felt okay to eat, I was craving things like pizza and mozzarella sticks. I also was loving sour candy...you can see how I gained the weight pretty easily. Now that I am in the second trimester, I am feeling much better and I am making better food choices and being much more active!
Maternity Clothes: Kind of. I have bought a couple of pair of maternity pants. I just hate the feeling of anything tight on my tummy right now. I can still wear my own tops and flowy summer dresses which is nice. Bathing suit shopping has not been fun, haha!
Sleep? Sleep has been good! I am pretty much beat and need to go to sleep by 10:30 pm. Although now I am all nervous that I am going to turn and sleep on my back during the night. According to the baby book I am reading, 16 weeks is a turning point and you can no longer sleep or rest on your back...bad for baby! Ahh! I have to admit, I woke up at one point last night and freaked out because I was on my back.
Best Moment of the Week? Signing the Purchase and Sale on our new home! Yay! Baby B is going to have an awesome new home! We are very excited about this next step :)
Movement? NOTHING! I can't wait to feel baby. I even tried drinking orange juice and sitting still to see if I could feel anything but nothing!
Food Craving? Pasta and ice cream and pickles and GREEN OLIVES --> I have been eating these by the jar!
Food aversions: Um nothing...hence my weight gain...hahahah!
Morning sickness? GONE! Thank goodness! It was so bad in the beginning :(
Gender? We find out the gender on July 26th! We are very excited. I still think it's a boy but we will see!
Belly Button? Still in.
What I miss? Not gonna lie. I miss my dirty martinis! O yeah and my energy!
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out if Baby B is a boy or a girl! Weekly Wisdom: Go with the flow and be flexible!
