Please pass the tardy-sauce, I am late with my weekly update lol
We had a busy weekend and so I didn't get to as much of the clerical stuff as I would have liked, but it was totally worth it - we finally had some nice weather around here and just had to get out to take advantage!
How far along: 23w5d
This weeks' weight gain/loss: +1lb
Total weight gain/loss: -5lbs
Symptoms: This was our first weekend of really nice summer-ish weather, so it was a testament as to how I am going to handle the rest of the pregnancy throughout the summer - my prediction at this point is so-so lol Aside from getting hotter faster than I usually do, it really wasn't all that bad... at first. But after a while the back pain set in and so did the swelling (ugh). I have a feeling my rings aren't going to last much longer and am thinking about going to look for some cheapies to replace them for the duration.
Maternity clothes: Pretty much all maternity at this point.
Stretch marks: yes :o( around the hips, lower abdomen and thighs *sigh*
Best moment this week: Seeing my extended family for the first time and getting lots of congrats :o)
Movement: Same as usual, which is a lot. Waiting for stronger kicks so that DH can feel from the outside.
Food cravings: Trying to eat as healthy as possible - we went to the public market this weekend and stocked up on fruit and veggies, which I am absolutely loving! Trying to ignore my cravings for cake and other sweets lol
Gender: it's a BOY!!! Owen Richard W*****
Any baby related purchases: Our glider and ottoman set came in yesterday! We absolutely LoVe it!!! It was super easy to assemble and exactly what we wanted - super comfortable and matches the furniture perfectly!
Milestones: V-day is this Wednesday!!! I can hardly believe it!
Please ignore this lovely picture of me... t-shirts are no longer flattering (ugh), the boobs are out of control and my tummy is alllllllllll baby! Wish I had one of those cute little pregnant bellies that look like you swallowed a beach ball lol *sigh* sadly, no such luck here :o(
That's our glider and ottoman set - it's a Shermag in the mocha color combo
