|headed out to register!|
Size of baby: According to thebump.com Jaqs is the size of an eggplant! She's around 15 inches long and weighing in somewhere around 2-2.5 pounds.
Total weight gain: Up 15ish pounds. I don't have a doctor appointment until 30 weeks, so I'm not exactly sure.
Gender: Baby girl!
Movement: Yes...now we're sometimes able to tell where she is by a bulging head or hiney sticking out one side! I think she must not be able to do her gymnastics as easily now because my whole belly shakes when she turns.
Sleep: Sleep's still good, thankfully. I'm using a body pillow now, so that makes getting comfy easier! I'm usually up at least once to use the bathroom but have no problem falling right back to sleep.
What I miss: Nothing!
|ready to tackle the list|
Cravings: I've been on a fruit and cottage cheese kick lately...so yummy! But before you roll your eyes at that, please know that Rob & I ate his entire birthday cake between us this week. Whoops. Couldn't help it...Bob's Red Mill GF chocolate cake is delish! And most of our friends are cleansing...WHATEVER! ;)
Symptoms: Shortness of breath at times and foot cramps. I hate the way those things sneak up on ya!
Maternity clothes: Still working with both.
Best moments this week:
--Knowing we've arrived in the 3rd & final trimester...WOW.
--Building our baby registry. So much fun, but also scary. Little people are veeeerrrry expensive.
--Jaqs' nursery is finally underway! I'm SO excited to see how it'll all turn out. Her bedding may even be done by the end of the month :)
THE list. Yes, I'm old school and prefer a hand-written list over a typed one. Anyway, this baby registry has been kind of overwhelming me, but I think we've mostly got it knocked out now! I still need to make a few adjustments to it, but I'm glad to have that checked off our to-dos. It's hard to know what your baby will like and what's necessary, but we will learn as we go, I'm sure.
And one more little tid-bit...these beauties arrived today:
I've been going back and forth on cloth diapering since before I was even pregnant, so when Cotton Babies was having a clearance sale on the all-in-ones last week, I took it as my sign to go for it. There are many benefits to cloth diapering, so I'm really hoping that Jaqs and I will both embrace and love it. If you have any advice on the matter, please do share!!
