Late posting this, again. It's beginning to be the story of my life these days.
How far along? 29 weeks
Maternity clothes? Of course. I dare not to even try to squeeze in normal clothes (pants mostly) at this point.
Stretch marks? None - which makes me so happy and thankful.
Sleep: Sleeping good still until about 1:30/2:00 a.m. Then it's toss and turn central for me. A lot of facebook stalking happens at that point.
Best moment this week: Since I'm answering in the now I'm going to have to say our maternity photo shoot with my good friend, Natalie. It's always a good time when she photographs us. Vinny sported a bow tie and he was the handsomest thing on this planet. I'm dying to see our pics.
Miss Anything? Sleep right now.
Movement: Always - I love it.
Food cravings: Chocolate milk this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Still thinking girl. I purchased a few headbands on Etsy last week to bring to the hospital - just in case we are dealt a girl. Surprisingly, holding those tiny little headbands kinda makes me hope for a girl this time around.
Labor Signs: No.
Belly Button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off?
Off. Off. So, so off. I did something really dumb. Since we were having our maternity photo shoot I wanted to wear my rings for the photos. Can't blame a girl, right? Granted, they have been off for a few weeks due to my swollen fingers/hands. But, I managed to get them on easily enough and proceeded to our shoot. That night there was no budging them off. Sunday I tried everything - soap, lotion, Vaseline, Windex, preparation H, oil. Nothing worked. My fingers just seemed to grow and grow every time I tried something new. By Monday my rings were so tight and wedged on that I couldn't even twist them. They started cutting into my skin causing me to bleed. Sadly, I had to go to our jeweler and get them cut off. I'm devastated. I cried when they were cut. I could still cry thinking of it. But on the flip side I don't need my finger amputated and my rings can (and will) be fixed once baby no. 2 gets here and my swelling subsides. But, regardless, it's something nobody wants to have happen.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm a mixed bag at this point.
Looking forward to: Memorial Day weekend, of course! I can't wait to spend it with my little family.
