FEELING: Excellent! Wow! This pregnancy is flying by! Maybe because with my first pregnancy I had a lot of time to think about EVERY MOMENT……but now I hardly have a second to myself! She sure it growing quickly though. I feel her kicks and am love it. No, I am not one of those people who loves being pregnant, but am trying to take in that this will be my last baby and trying to enjoy the moment.
WARDROBE: Leggings. Lots of leggings. I feel like I am getting ‘dressed up’ when I put on jeans. Leggings are just so comfortable! Paired with a long sleeve shirt or cami and open sweater I’m usually dressed for the day. Since I don’t have a huge need for dressier clothes, I have gotten by with two dresses I wore over the holidays. I just change up the accessories and call it a day. And, lets not forget the power of a good pair of shoes.
CRAVING: Smoothies! Yum! I am starting to feel really full, really quick (as she is growing, I am losing space in there)….so they are filling me up and giving me a boost of vitamins and protein. Usually I include: Frozen Strawberries, banana, ice, baby spinach, avocado, Greek yogurt, a little bit of OJ. Delicious!
OVERALL THOUGHTS: This is getting real! I am a little bummed out that I wont have her nursery ready when she is born….we will be moving a month or two after her arrival….so there is no point in setting it up. But, I am getting my ideas together and will have all the pieces ready to set up.
I am also starting to freak out a bit (or a lot) about how I’m going to handle three kids! Charlie will be in full-time school this fall, but I am worried about getting through the summer. Luckily my mom and dad are around often and I have wonderful friends to help me though with moral support (and hopefully wine).
NAME UPDATE: Nothing set in stone. We are still negotiating and deliberating. But, don’t worry! We will know soon. I need time to order some monogrammed clothes for her big arrival!
