This is the dress that I’m going to wear to my baby shower this weekend. It’s my only ‘dressy’ maternity dress. (So it’s also the dress I’m going to wear to all Christmas & New Year events. All hail the little black dress!) I put on cute high heels like the inspiration photo but that lasted all of 30 seconds before I nixed the idea and swapped to easy low wedges. Not even long enough to snap a photo – no way jose.
I’m super excited to celebrate this little girl with my friends and family this weekend. Many people I who I don’t get to see very often are traveling here from out of town. I am so thankful to have such a loving group who will be a part of her life growing up. I feel really lucky.
Symptoms – Few new occurrences of note: Having a little bit of acid refulx/heart burn when I eat certain foods. Really achy back if I try to do too much (like carrying around bunches of boxes of Christmas decorations and trying to reorganize the garage). And lastly I think my balance is off a bit because doorways and stationary objects seem to be jumping in my way when I walk/waddle past.
Food – I’ve been eating a little bit of everything this holiday season. Thanksgiving food. Cookies. Cakes. So much deliciousness everywhere. All the indulging showed up on the scale this week at the doctors where they told me I’ve already hit 49 pounds. Eeeeep. Back on track after this weekend! Need more veggies in my life!
Exercise – Still trying to walk as much as I can. Work went a little crazy last week so I didn’t get in my 10K steps very many days but I plan to get back to that routine next week as well.
Clothes – I’ve reached the point of this pregnancy of not liking clothes. At all. Every single morning I look at my options and I don’t want to get dressed. All I want to wear is giant PJs. Having to wear something everyday is just annoying. If there is any tightness, pulling or ill fit of any kind – forget it. I’m not wearing it. So I’m only wearing about 1/3 of the maternity clothes I have. The most comfortable options. Over and over. Not great blog material.
Body – Baby has started to squirm like a little alien trying to escape my stomach. You can see these bumps and movements beneath the surface. It’s super cool and weird.
