My Baby is as big as a: Small cabbage
Due Guess Date: April 23 to 27, 2014
Weight Gained: 10 pounds?
Symptoms: The lower back pain has begun. I am so scared for the next 3 months. This baby is going to triple in size! Thinking about getting some sort of support band.
Food Cravings: None
Food Aversions: I’m not really into coffee lately, which is good because I am watching my caffeine intake. I limit myself to one a day. I have been drinking Chai Lattes all week for my fix.
Sleep: What sleep? Some nights are better than others. Sleeping through till morning is serious cause for celebration these days. I wake up to pee, or Rose Nylund (my dog) is has to pee… or because my back is bugging me. Then I’m up, wide awake. Before I know it, I’m sooo hungry and have to eat. I was up at 2:30 am Monday night and did not get back to sleep… maybe it’s my body getting ready for a newborn.
Miss Anything? Exercising full out. I miss that heart racing, sweaty, short of breath feeling.
Looking forward to: Finishing the house. When we moved in we did a lot of renovations. The last 5% has been unfinished for 3 years now. Ideally we get everything just the way we want it before baby comes. We have started house shopping (this is depressing in Toronto), there isn’t much out there. We aren’t in a rush so we can be picky and wait for the right house. I just want to be ready to list our place on short notice if we have to.
Belly Button in or out? Fully out.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy… which is surprising considering the lack of sleep.
New Baby Items: I bought the diaper bag… yes, THE diaper bag. I have had my eye on this one since I found out I was pregnant and have been trying to justify it for the last 6 months. I ended up ordering it online because I couldn’t find it in stores ANYWHERE. I even called the outlet in Florida, “We’ve been sold out for months.” Apparently Tory is discounting the baby/kids line (which of course made me want it even more).
My must have diaper bag features:
- Outside pockets
- Cross body and shoulder straps
- Easy open/close/access
- Outside pockets
- Neutral colour/design (so the husband can borrow it)
Maternity Clothes: I bought another pair of Skinny Wills in Zinfandel from Lululemon. I had to. I have been living in my black ones lately. Expensive yes…. BUT it’s maternity wear that I will definitely continue to wear after baby is born.
