Preggy Sue

The Road to Hell. . .

Paved with good intentions, blah blah blah.  It's been almost a week since I posted.  After my solemn vow. C'est la vie.  I've been going to lots of yoga classes, and am going to learn to relax.  This mono type exhaustion also really helps the relaxation process.

So as an appeasement measure for lack of posting, I have pregnancy pictures! Much like Kate, I had qualms about this type of posts, but after a conversation with my dear friend Miss Purvis, in which we realized that she may never see me pregnant in person, I decided it's time.

So 21 weeks.

I'm sure you love my high quality iphone pics taken this morning on my way to out the door.  I, for one, appreciate their blurriness.

This was probably not the best dress to wear for this exercise, as it does a fairly good job of camouflaging the bump.  Flip-side?  I then look chunky not preggo.  I am pulling it tight here, so you can see the goods.

My waist has disappeared, but I look slightly normal from the front (please just agree with the delusional pregnant lady, okay?).

So the rundown (I copied your headings, Melissa)-

How Far Along: 21 weeks

Sex of baby:  We dunno, much to all the ultrasound techs' displeasure.  I have had an ultrasound every 2 weeks because of the wonky uterus, so tomorrow's scan will be the fourth chance we've had to find out. Obviously, I am made of willpower enforced steel, no?

Size of baby:  A big banana! The banana is right at the 49th percentile for size, which sounds great.
Total Weight Gained:  At my estimate about 11 pounds.  I don't pay attention at the doctor's because 1) my appointments are right after lunch 2) I haven't used the restroom yet and 3) I have on copious amounts of clothes.  Everyone knows your true weight is first thing in the morning, after using the ladies, with minimal amounts of clothing.  Obviously.

Maternity Clothes:  Pants and skirts.  I am loving that elastic waist.  All my normal flowy dresses and tops are still in use.

Movement:  All the time! Baby is most active around 3:30, and 8-9:30.  It really likes yoga, and bounces all around at the end when we lay still, or after a walk or swim.  Hubs is thinking that it is already taking after me in the activity levels.  Maybe all that playing is why I am so dad gum tired!

Sleep: Oh, just about 9-12 hours a night. . .

What I miss: Just feeling like myself. Jazzercise and a run.  Oh, and my energy.

Cravings: Pineapple and cheeseburgers.

Aversions:   Chicken.  I can wolf down a damn barbecue sandwich, but the thought of even Chick-fil-a makes me gag.  Not loving salads either.  It's so strange.

Symptoms:  My back hurts, and I can't remember my last name.  Literally.  I was leaving a message for someone, and left it with my maiden name.  I've been married for almost 2.5 years.

Best Moment this week: A pregnancy massage last weekend at Westglow on Mama and I's mother daughter spa weekend! Seriously, go there- it was wonderful!

  6. You are still tiny, not showing at all! It's cute! Even though I love my baby, I miss my bump. :)

  7. You look adorbs! I had a friend who routinely used her maiden name while preggo and could not figure out why she couldn't remember her married name. Too funny! Enjoy the sleep if you can.
