Better late than never, right? We got home from my mom and dad’s house yesterday afternoon and I was in bed by 7:30. I’m old. Early Christmas was fun and festive. The cousins opened their presents from each other on Saturday night and we had hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, courtesy of my dad. Yum. We also had way too many gingerbread cookies. Okay, I had way too many gingerbread cookies.
What’s up with my crying lately? I tell ya, I cry at the drop of a hat. I finally gave up on wearing my own pajamas and just started wearing hubby’s. Tears. Oh, the tears. But, in reality, I was so comfy last night, not having these tight pants around my waist. I should have made the switch weeks ago.
Flannel sheets are now on the bed, which signals Christmas is near. Not sure what I’m getting the hubby for Christmas this year. Suggestions are welcome.
How Far Along: 34 Weeks!
Size of Baby: 17.7 inches and 4.7 lbs
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I’d say about 20. But I feel like I could eat forever….
Maternity Clothes: YES.
Gender: A BOY! Colin Whitney
Movement: Colin definitely has his crazy/active time and his sleeping time. He usually is active in the mornings and in the late afternoon/early evenings. He’s currently asleep right now and I’m enjoying the break. I’ll be anxious to see if he keeps this pattern up once he is born.
Sleep: Much better now that I’m taking extra magnesium. And I really think the flannel sheets are helping, too.
What I Miss: Pants with a button and zipper.
Cravings: Ice. Still ice. I eat so much it should be illegal.
Symptoms: Still a few Braxton Hicks, nothing major though.
Best Moment This Week: Celebrating Early Christmas with the fam. And getting down to the wire. Just gotta get moved into our new house first. 🙂
