We are in the home stretch!
Reminding me just how much I have to do before baby gets here because time goes so quickly.
Here's a little update on pregnant life as of late :)
- Up about 20 pounds
- Belly and face are getting rounder by the day!
I was on a smoothie kick the last couple weeks. It seems like I've been more slack on eating fruit and veggies this pregnancy. Mixing smoothies helped me to up my intake, satisfy those mid-day snack cravings and use up the fruit in my fridge.
My most recent food 'thing' has to be BLT's... with a twist. I have been making sandwiches with toast, salsa, cheese, spinach and bacon - delish! They first started as a result of no tomato or lettuce but turned out to be so much better than the original :) Plus it's quick & easy!
Achey! Although my body was used to being exhausted last pregnancy after keeping up with a classroom of three year olds, while working at a daycare, my lower back has been bothering me more this time. Maybe it's just how my body is changing or perhaps from having to lift Halle this time... or a combination of the two.
I'm also feeling more pressure from baby this time. At my check up this week, my doctor confirmed baby's head was sitting low, and down in my pelvis, which explains these sometimes uncomfortable feelings. But it's normal for a second pregnancy and usually means a faster delivery, so let's hope for that!
Using approximately five pillows for extra comfort and support these days, ha! Pretty much a little pillow fence built around me pushing Matthew to the outskirts of the mattress... Good thing we have a king size ;)
My waddle slowing me down from catching Halle before she dropped my iPhone in Loki's water bowl. Thankfully after a day of it being out of commission and hiding in rice it's working again :)
Finally figuring out how to turn on our air conditioning after melting for about a week!
And in other exciting news, I think we are closer to knowing baby's name! It's narrowed down but, of course, is top secret! I'll give you a hint though... it's not a 'H' name ;)
