How far along: 24 weeks
Weight gain: 17 lbs. (eek!)
I bought a few maternity pants, including these gray jeans
I’m wearing here, but I tend to stick to normal, non-maternity loose shirts (love this navy linen striped tee
I’m wearing–on sale!). I’m excited for the weather to get warmer so I can live in casual dresses!
I finally pulled out my pregnancy pillow
from storage and I don’t know why I waited so long! I’m sleeping like a baby again.
Best moment this month: Getting started on the nursery and talking baby names endlessly with Chris.
Worst moment this month: I mentioned this in our podcast, but Baltimore did me in. Normally I have endless energy when it comes to getting a project done, but 20 hours on my feet a day had me swollen to the brim and in so much pain. Once we got home and I was able to rest, the swelling went down and I felt a lot better.
Miss anything: I miss my jawline–does that count? Haha. But to be honest, I really do miss feeling active and fit and healthy. It’s always been a big part of my life and pregnancy puts a big halt on that for me. Of course babies are 100% worth it, but I think it’s okay to miss, too.
Movement: She’s kicking and moving all over the place but Chris, nor the girls have caught it yet.
Cravings: Chips and salsa forever, and cereal in the coldest milk I can find.
Queasy or sick: For the most part, the nausea is gone, finally! However, I have to take special prenatal vitamins to combat Bell’s Palsy, which I got after delivering Greta, and am now prone to in pregnancy. They make me feel so queasy! I have started taking them right before bed, but I still dread it, especially if I have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Hope you all have a fun Easter weekend! We’re hosting dinner and an egg hunt at our home with family, which means putting the reno projects and just enjoying the weekend.
