How far along? 23 Weeks (only 17 more to go)!
Baby is now the size of: Grapefruit
Gender: Still A GIRL 🙂
Movement: It feels so much different now! Before it was just as you would imagine; those little kicks or punches here and there. Now I swear this girl is practicing her pliés amongst some acrobatics. It feels like waves of movement. I can now feel her move when I’m standing upright.
Food cravings: Creme Brûlée seems to be sticking. I have the biggest sweet tooth so am really happy with anything made of sugar.
Food Aversions: I will puke if I have to have another hamburger or hot dog. The usual summer bbq staple has been overdone for me. Back to roast beef I guess… lol
Worst moment this week: Not entirely pregnancy related (although I could blame pregnancy brain) but I gave myself a black eye this week…while putting on my bikini. Yup, it’s possible friends! A bikini can only stretch so far before it completely combusts in your face. Immediate black eye (which has been getting worse by the day!) partnered with a cry baby cry. Boy oh boy, did it hurt! Luckily for me a) the metal part of the strap got just under my eye right by the crease avoiding any vision damage and b) cover up exists so I could hide the evidence of my stupidity in these photos.
Best moment this week: This week we celebrated Beau’s 31st birthday. Having a romantic date night at one of his favourite restaurants was a highlight for me. I also find it absolutely adorable how excited he still is about his gift.
Excited For: So much right now. But my invitations have just been completed and have started to be sent out so I am pretty darn excited for the shower to arrive. Not sure how I am going to balance wanting to add adorable things I keep seeing to the registry without seeing what has been kindly purchased (I LOVE surprises).
Makes me Laugh: I officially have pregnancy/baby brain I swear. I can’t seem to remember a gosh darn thing! All day long I race around the house looking for something i’ve “lost” to find it 20 minutes later exactly where it’s always been housed. Just today I noticed that “oh ya, I forgot” kept coming out of my mouth. It is so bizarre and absolutely frustrating.
