Maternity clothes: Haha, oh yes. Even maternity jeans are getting a little uncomfortable. Loving stretchy pants and dresses.
Best moment this week: I went on my first shopping spree for the babe yesterday. We'd been so spoiled with clothes and gifts that there was really no need to buy more, more, more. I'm trying to resist since those early days are so fleeting and they grow out of the itty-bitty stuff so fast. But the kid needed some tiny white onesies, and who am I to say no to Columbus Day sales?
Movement: We've moved on from flutters to full on martial arts jabs, punches, and rolls. The best way I can describe it is like those massage chairs at the nail salon -- only in the front, not the back -- and not controlled by the push of a button :)
Food cravings/aversions: My body must be telling me something because I've been craving so much dairy. Ice cream and lots of it, cottage cheese (took my first bite after probably 10 years and haven't stopped since!), and yogurt. Aversions = chicken. Blech.
What I miss: Chardonnay.
Sleep: Thanks to our new mattress, huge bed and pure exhaustion, I've been sleeping like a champ. Just wish there were more hours in the day for more of it.What I'm looking forward to: Everything in the next few months. I can't believe we'll be meeting our lil dude soooo soon.
Symptoms: A little back pain here and there, but only (ironically) when I'm relaxing on the couch. Other than that, a shrinking bladder and that's about it!
