365 Project 2015: Day 27
Let’s see!! I’m not sure there are a ton of updates since last week. I’ve just been trucking right along, doing my daily thing, growing a human - you know! I’ve been pretty busy with work and Pure Romance - which is great. For the most part I really love staying super busy. Every now and then I have a “WOW. I’m SO exhausted.” moment but when you’re doing what you love to do, it all weighs out on the good side of the scale in the end! I promise there will be posts that aren’t just pregnancy updates in the near future! I keep thinking that *this* is the week I’m going to really focus on starting a YouTube channel and incorporating that into my blog. I think it would be so much fun to do video reviews on products and even just plain old daily life vlogs! I’m just very particular about editing the videos - so finding the time to sit down and edit the footage into what I want it to be is a tough one! I did get Final Cut Pro in December though… so .. I really have no excuses!
How Far Along Are You: 25 weeks.
How Big Is The Baby?: My app says he is 13.6 - 14.8 inches and around 2lbs!
How Much Weight Have You Gained?: I think around 20lbs!! Eeeep!
Maternity Clothes: Last weekend I finally had to break down and buy a pair of “maternity” yoga pants. They are actually $10 yoga pants from Forever 21 in a size large with a giant fold over waistband - so I folded it up and TA DA - maternity pants. I really need to do a blog/video on how I’ve managed to do maternity clothing cheaply. I’ve probably not even spent $100.
Stretch Marks: So I keep seeing this little purplish line on one boob and I side-eye it every day when I get out of the shower because I can’t tell if it’s the start of a stretch mark or not. I’ve basically been taking a bath in Save My Skin Body Oil and Body Silk Body Lotion (both by Pure Romance) every single day. I could not possibly be a more moisturized human being.
Sleep: I’ve forgotten what it’s like to sleep well at this point but I’m pretty used to it.
Best Moment This Week: Nate was able to feel baby boy move for an extended period of time and the movements were super strong! The look on his face was priceless!
Movement: Pretty continuous! If I sit still long enough he usually starts to move around quite a bit! I’ve read that my movements rock him to sleep, so I try to sit real still whenever I want to feel him. =) Usually, if I talk to him he’ll kick a lot harder. It’s pretty dang cute.
Food Cravings: I generally just want to be eating everything all day, every day.
Food Aversions: I’d probably eat just about anything at this point.
Labor Signs: I’ve had what I think were a few Braxton Hicks contractions. I woke up around 3AM for about an hour and a half on Monday morning and just felt really uncomfortable. They weren’t painful and I couldn’t really tell where one began/one ended but my stomach definitely felt tight. I experienced something similar at the grocery store the following evening. Nothing since, but I expect them to return.
Belly Button In or Out: Flat.
What I Miss: I’ve been experiencing a lot of lower back pain, so I really miss not feeling achy 24/7.
What I’m Looking Forward To: Getting my glucose test over with this coming week! And I’m trying not to jump too far ahead here but just, holding my baby. I want to hold my baby. RIGHT NOW. ;]
