How far along? 26 weeks
Baby is now the size of: Cucumber
Gender: A GIRL
Movement: This week miss stubborn finally decided to make a public moving appearance and members of the family as well as friends were able to feel her kicks and wiggles. This included her very patient Mami (Beau’s mom). So fun!
Food cravings: Have a mentioned I love creme brûlée? I still do. But in addition to it, I have been loving smoothies that I don’t have to make. Especially the Booster Juice variety (something about the texture). Unfortunately for them, one of the days Beau was out and stopped by to pick one up for me, they were closed due to a power issue and said they’d be 15 minutes or so. I didn’t want him to wait around so I just decided to stop by later when running errands and it was STILL closed! So, I looked around and saw a spot called Freshii (as I REALLY ‘needed’ a smoothie) and checked it out. Well I have to admit, I’ve been there every day since and have enjoyed the Freshii Green Smoothie. It is SO delicious and completely addictive.
Food Aversion: I seem to be quite picky these days.
Favorite meal this week: We went to the Mandarin with family this week and as per usual, Beau and I had enough crab legs for everyone’s cost of plate to be worthwhile. They also had the most perfect creme brûlée which I indulged in amongst some chocolate covered strawberries. It’s been a very bad food week! Tomorrow is my doctor’s appointment so we shall see how much of my over indulging has stuck around (in all the wrong places).
Purchases: Not nearly enough pink little hangers for the nursery.
Emotional moment this week: The waterworks have arrived. Here, there and everywhere for no apparent reason. The stuff you read about in pregnancy books and it’s so confusing!
New moment this week: This is more of a mom truth and may just be TMI but since I know a lot of you will relate I thought I’d share. Plus, it’s nice to know others go through it so early and that it’s normal. The milk machines have started doing their thang. I laugh at myself come morning as my pajama tops show the evidence.
The last week honestly flew by quicker than any other week. A little nerve-wracking as that means we are going to be with baby before we know it!
Stay tuned for Thursday’s post as we have a giveaway!
