Maternity Clothes? I went on a shopping spree today! I got 2 great pairs of under-the-belly black work pants (I hate the belly panel!). I got one pair of the Heidi Klum brand ones that are a skinny fit (and they were only $40!) and the second pair is just Thyme maternity brand, with more of a bootcut/flare . Both are perfect for going back to work in a week and a half! eeek! I also bought 3 new shirts at a non-maternity store. But they are longer fitting shirts so they won't ride up, because I am frequently dealing with the bare-belly peeking out from under my t-shirts these days! I don't think it's too appropriate for work! I'm really happy with my purchases! I'm going to give hubs a fashion show and get him to take some pics and I'll post them! I haven't worn anything but work out clothes and comfy clothes all summer since I'm off!
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep? No troubles sleeping unless I get a heartburn attack!
Best Moment of the Week? Buying cute maternity stuff was fun! It was also great coming back from Miami (even though it cleared up and because beautiful for the 2nd half of our week) and picking up Cosmo from my parents! I missed my little guy!
Movement? Lots! But I get nervous when I don't feel it for a while. Mostly I don't notice it unless I'm sitting still. If I'm moving around I don't notice movement at all.
Food Cravings? Wood-oven thin crust pizza from the Italian restos in Sobe! Yummmm!
Gender? Girl! But I've had several people ask me when my "son" is due! Apparently I'm carrying like its a boy??? Not sure what to think of this wives tale? Anyone believe this stuff? I'm nervous that now I'm all set on girl and then its going to turn out to be a boy! Afterall the tech wasn't 10000% sure it was a girl! Maybe the wee-wee was hiding???
What I miss? Not having heartburn (or diarrhea...for more details see yesterday's post...but beware of TMI!)
What I'm looking forward to? V-DAY!!! Viability that is! And my 24 week appt next Tuesday!
Weekly Wisdom: Maalox causes diarrhea. Heartburn sucks, but diarrhea sucks too. And also that maternity clothes aren't ALL ugly!
Milestones: No biggies this week.
Emotions: Pretty good. My freak outs have been minimal (except for in Miami when it was raining and I was going nuts!) Starting to get the nesting instinct. And its scaring me. I don't want to get ahead of myself! When did anyone else start planning/buying/decorating for baby? Or when do you plan to? I don't want to get all ready and excited and then have something go wrong!
A few Q's for anyone who may have thought about this stuff:
- What stroller do you like? I'm debating between uppababy vista and Orbit G2. Are these more expensive ones worth it or does Graco do the trick?
- Thoughts on Baby Bjorn?
- Dutallier Gliders? Worth the big bucks or just get a cheaper one? Any recommendations?
And here are some 22.5 week belly pics from when we were in Miami last week. Ignore my stupid looking facial expressions and post-ocean hair!
