Now that I am feeling more human & the secret is out though, it is a very different kind of fun! We no longer have to check ourselves before opening our mouths for starters. And holy mackerel do we have a lot to get done in not a lot of time!
So here are the stats as of today.
Weight gain: 10ish pounds, its still normalizing since getting back from vacation. Several of those pounds can be directly contributed to items like these from Disney:
Maternity Clothes: Not yet. In fact, I invested in a couple of bellabands before we left for vacation in case all the amazing food made things a bit tight but a hair elastic a couple of times totally did the trick. It's coming though!
Gender: Girl! A total Princess. :)
Name: Been picked for years but it's a surprise!
Movement: She went from 0-60 a number of weeks back and it has only grown more constant. Three days after I knew I was feeling her for sure, Brent was able to feel her too. Little girl packs a whallop!
Cravings: After the word salad made me puke for the first 15ish weeks (the smell and sight were even worse), I'm back to enjoying my massive salads, in fact, for a few weeks that was just about the only thing that sounded good. Fruit salads with yogurt have also been ranking pretty high. And of course, ice cream. :)
Sleep: Decent, I actually slept better at Disney then I have been at home. I have a feeling this had more to do with the exhaustion at the end of every day though. The dreams interfere more with my sleep than anything else. That plus a bathroom break nearly every night and those are the only things messing with me for now.
What I'm most looking forward to after the baby (besides the obvious): Running & working out. Feeling strong. Putting on clothes and having them just slid right on. Being able to get up and move around without groaning.
Last baby item purchased: bookcase & mirror for her room.
Other Craziness: After buying and testing a ton of different samples, we have finalized the paint (YAY!). The goal for May is to get the room painted and the majority of the furniture sanded, painted, assembled and in the room. Last big decision is committing to the glider. We loved the Little Castle brand but the one we tested and loved doesn't come in the color we want. Now we need to track down the Monaco II to do a sit test.
