Onto the changes!
Warning: Changes to my body are happening and I'm not afraid to share. TMI is in full force!
Symptoms: I feel like a hibernating mama bear. Literally. All I want to do / do is sleep until 11am, get up, eat, lay on the couch and then get up for the day! I swear before being pregnant I could NOT stand the thought of being home all day doing nothing. Now it's like a vacation. I just need it. =) Boobs and back are itchy as heck. Leaky boobs, yep I sure said it. It's been going on for a while but I guess the better for baby since I plan to Breastfeed. Dizzy spells, all the time, I need to learn to get up slowly and try not to get up and go like I used to.
Stretch Marks? Ugh, I've been dreading answering this. But yes. I have them under my breasts. Um hello, going from a a small B to a full C can do that to you. A couple on the sides of my hips but hooray that's it!
Maternity Clothes? Yes yes yes! I Love maternity jeans! So dang comfortable! I do still wear my regular jeans and shorts but I do the rubberband trick.
Movement? All day errr day! =) We can now feel him move and kick on the palm of our hands when placed on my belly. It's the best feeling ever!
Mood: Being a grouch is fading away Thank God. I'm happy and want to cuddle all the time. Last night I cried while listening to a song I love "Falling Slowly" on America's Got Talent. So I guess still very sensitive.
Cravings: Pasta pasta pasta! Salads, Fruits, Popcorn, Sushi, Bagels and cream cheese. Meat / chicken is disgusting. Still cannot handle eating it.
|Sushi Date last Friday night! Don't worry the roll I always get is baked. So no raw stuff for me!|
|I had to pick out the chicken from the fettucine I made. =/|
Gender: It's a boy! Noah!
Other Facts: My Hair is growing and I love it. I recently got it trimmed. It feels good to have a full head of nice hair for once! Nails are also stronger. Linea Negra is now visible on the lower part of my belly. My belly button is oddly big.
Innie/ Outie? Innie but it's starting to level off with my belly.
As For David's Pregnancy:
Yesterday we were at Kohls looking for a button up shirt for him, I was walking around holding my belly and when I looked over at him he too was looking at the clothes and holding his belly and sighing every min. I had to just stare at him for a bit and when he saw me looking I said " really babe?" hahaha he started giggling and said he didn't notice I had been holding my belly. Surrreeeee.... hahaha He's so cute.
His cravings are also showing a lot more. The other day he ate waffles and eggs for breakfast. 10 min after he had finished he ate a bowl of cheerios, followed by cookies and milk. An hour after that he opened a bag of M & M's and then ate lunch. Hahaha yep. My Husband is one pregnant fella. ;)
We went to the Goodwill over the Weekend and found the changing table of my dreams that I couldn't seem to find with Babies R Us or Target! And guess what?! It was only $14.99!!! I was so excited! We bought it and we got paint and sandpaper to paint it eggshell white. Here's the Before and After.
Cute right?! I also Found that little deer at another thrift and I painted it gray.
I Love it. The color scheme I chose for Noah's furniture and decorations are : White, Light Grey and Light Blue. I also found framed paintings which I plan on painting today. I'll make on white and the other light blue.
I love shopping at thrift stores and finding good things for a very very low price. At the Goodwill, they constantly have brand new items with the tags still on them because a lot of them are donated from Target. I've been finding some adorable baby clothes that I couldn't resist not buying. Here's what I found.
|Brand New Clothes! This could have easily been over $40.00!!!|
I love that David agrees with doing some shopping at thrift stores. My dad always hated the thought when I was younger. I loved thrift stores and he'd say, " we can afford new things, and I want my kids to look good with new clothes" but I know what new things tend to cost and for a lot of things it's just unecessary. Sure we do actually go to department stores here and there but I tend to feel too guilty with spending $30 for a shirt when I can get 4 outfits at the thrift for that much! Too each his own I guess. ;)
Anyways Hope you're all having a great week so far! Tomorrow is Friday and I cannot wait! We're going to the Hot Air Balloon Festival! Whoo!!!!
I'd love to hear back from you all , feel free to comment below. ;)
