How far along? 30 Weeks. I can’t believe it.
Baby is now the size of: Butternut Squash.
Weight Gain: I didn’t gain any weight the last two weeks. I am still at a total of 10 pounds of weight gain.
Movement: She now tends to jab me with different parts of her little body. Sometimes she pushes a little body part against me and holds it there. As soon as I touch it she moves it around 🙂
New Moves: I figured out that the heart beat type of movement I’ve been feeling this week is actually little babe dealing with the hiccups!
Food cravings: Boston Cream Donuts are still a hit.
Food aversions: Same as always but I forgot to mention (as I haven’t had it in a while) I always feel really nauseous after I have peanut butter on toast and the only remedy is carbonated water. Without fail.
Purchases: Nursery DIY stuff… you’ll see.
Sleep: I tend to be more of the night owl I was when I was in University but these days, I can actually be up a bit earlier than back then.
Stroller Update: I picked one!!!
Baby Shower: This weekend and I am oh, so very excited! I love surprises so I haven’t been peaking at Our registry at all 🙂
Fun things this Week: This week I turned 28 and my birthday was honestly everything I could have wanted without wanting anything at all. For the first year ever (not kidding), I wasn’t anticipating the day, wishing for big plans, having a countdown or hyping myself up. I honestly have been so focused on baby and the upcoming events associated with her (birth maybe) that I didn’t need a day to celebrate me. I just wanted to continue celebrating my little babe and therefore was okay with having a super low key entrance to my 28th year (I’ve officially hit selfless mommy hood). In good ol’ Beau fashion though, he ensured that I did have a very special day. From the moment I woke he had other plans for me. First he surprised me with multiple bouquets of flowers all arranged for me in the kitchen, to sending me lovely messages throughout the day (as I did very low key things), planned an awesome dinner night out with 14 of our close friends (which he tried to make a surprise but we hit a few glitches along the way lol I didn’t care though, I was on cloud nine at his thoughtfulness) and of course, spoiling me with gifts that I was so excited to receive! The low key birthday that I had anticipated for myself this year turned into a whole lot of magic. Thanks to you who sent your best wishes also. Such a simple gesture certaintly goes a long way <3
