This week has been crazy busy! Remember (or maybe not) how I had ALL those wonderful days off work? Yeah, that's over now. Just as a quick update, we were supposed to close on our new house on Tuesday, 9/3 but didn't end up closing until Friday 9/6. So I had lots of extra time to pack, but haven't had a second to unpack! It's happening this weekend... or else.
We started moving stuff on Saturday and moved furniture on Sunday. I think we actually still have a few things over at the apartment, but I'm not sure. To be honest with you, I'm a little scared to go back to the apartment. I know I'll have to because we have to clean but I had a clean break from that place. The a/c went out last Thursday and packing/cleaning up in the heat was miserable so by Friday I was really ready to go. But now I think if I go back I'll be a little sad that we don't live there anymore.
Don't get me wrong, I'm incredibly happy to be in our first house, finally but, our apartment was our home for almost 4 years. We spent the majority of our relationship in that little apartment. It's been Teddy's home for most of his life. It's where Matt proposed to me and where we started our marriage. It's where we found out we were going to be starting a family! Thinking of all the random memories from our apartment makes me sad, but it's time to make some new memories in our new home. Once I have a minute to breathe I'll post a few pictures. Obviously nursery updates will be coming very soon. Matthew was supposed to prime the baby room today while I was at work but he had a REALLY long to do list, so I don't think he got around to that one. That's okay though, we'll start this weekend.
On to the bumpdate:
How far along? 31w5d
How big is baby? Baby is the size of a pineapple!!
Total weigh gain? 22 pounds I think?
Maternity clothes? Yes, I kinda hope I can get through the next 8 weeks with what I have, though I may need to get a few long sleeve items/sweaters for the fall/winter.
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep? Sleep will be easier now that we got cable installed today! I usually fall asleep to the TV and this week without it has been rough :)
Best moment this week? We got to see our little girl TWICE! Although she wasn't very cooperative either time! The BEST news this week was at our kidney ultrasound. While her left kidney is still dilated, it went down from 13mm 5 weeks ago to 11mm on Monday. Hopefully our next ultrasound will bring more good news, and hopefully this means the issue is resolving itself!
Miss anything? Today while driving home from work and trying really hard not to cry I longed for wine. A whole bottle.
Movement? Lots of movement still! And loving every second of it (well except for the ones that tickle, because really, who likes to be tickled?). This little girl also flipped and I didn't even feel it, or maybe I did and just didn't know what I was feeling. I used to be able to feel her flip and you'd know because it felt like you were going down the big hill on a roller coaster. I think I now know what some of the body parts are that pop out or wave across my belly!
Food cravings? Ok, so I don't know how many of you follow Giuliana Rancic on Instagram. I do, call me a loser, whatever I love her. Last night she posted a picture of the most delicious looking ice cream cones. Now I want one so bad. Who knew a plain vanilla soft serve with rainbow sprinkles could look so good. I need to find the nearest DQ to my house ASAP.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No, not in terms of morning sickness, but I do notice that I get slightly motion sick when riding in the car. It's mainly with my husband, apparently he's a crazy driver.
Gender? Baby girl!
Labor signs? No more cramps. I did notice some very scary cramps on Sunday evening and wasn't sure what to make of them. I don't know if I over did it on the whole moving front but I absolutely slowed down after that. Maybe that's why I haven't unpacked everything yet. They really didn't last long but were uncomfortable enough that I got super nervous.
Symptoms? A round belly, breakouts, exhaustion, being very emotional again.
Belly button in, or out? It's pretty flat always and only pops out sometimes.
Wedding rings on or off? On!! .
Happy or moody most of the time? I'm pretty happy most of the time. I was emotional today for no reason. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
Looking forward to? We're going to Cirque on Saturday night with Mitch and Kelsey, I'm really excited about that. MY BABY SHOWER IS ON SUNDAY! So looking forward to seeing all of my friends/family!! I'm looking forward to unpacking and getting settled, starting on the nursery, and making this house OUR home. Oh, also, meeting my baby in 8 weeks or less!!!!!
I have no bump picture this week, but please look at how cute my baby already looks! It appears as though she may have chubby cheeks, big lips, and HAIR!!
She looks like her daddy in this picture <3
