Yep. I'm a day behind again. I'll catch up, but at the moment I'm in the midst of birthday party madness and this circus is about to hit the road. We will be leaving town this afternoon to head back to middle TN to celebrate Ethan with family and friends. I can't wait!
You know what else I'm behind on???
Baby Jackson updates!!!
In fact, I don't think I've updated since...wait for it....AUGUST.
Major mom fail right?
Let's just say...we've grown.
I'm combining this update with my 31 Days challenge because really this pregnancy has made me so incredibly happy. Yes, there are a lot of uncomfortable moments and some anxiety ridden ones as well, but honestly everything has been going really well. This pregnancy has flown by really. I passed my glucose test a couple of weeks ago, but I did find out that I had low iron. Ever since I started my iron supplements I have felt soooo re-energized. It's wonderful.
Pregnancy may not be my absolute favorite look or feeling in life, but feeling a baby move around inside is such a special feeling. We had to work a little bit to get to where we are, but I feel so blessed to be pregnant again.
See...pregnancy is happiness?
Onto the update...
Total Weight Gained: Do we really still have to talk about this? Ugh...28 pounds. My goal was to be under 40, with 9 more weeks to go that means I'd have to be pretty cautious to make it, but maybe I can...maybe. I do feel and look better than I did with E though, so that counts for something right?
Belly Button: Still flattish.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Movement: This kid is super active. I refer to him as my alien baby because sometimes it literally feels like he might kick his way out of my belly button. I've seen body parts slide across my stomach which is super strange and super cool all at the same time. Ethan was definitely not this much of a mover.
Food Craving: Nothing really specific. I guess I did have some burger cravings these past couple of weeks. The Hardee's #2 combo has definitely been a favorite. Hmm...probably not good for the weight gain problem.
What I Miss: Being skinny.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Getting Jackson's room together! Things are semi in process although we still haven't kicked Ethan out yet. Stuff has been ordered, ideas are being formulated...hopefully it will come together quickly.
