How far along? 25 Weeks
Maternity clothes? Yes.
Stretch marks? So I cant remember when I started to notice these pesky buggers with Makenzie but so far I haven't got any new ones and the old ones have faded more and more. I have no idea if all my lotions and oils are really helping that much or if its the mass amount of water I'm drinking daily but whatever it is- its working.
Best moment this week: Getting the dresser painted, finally getting one of those amazing snow cones and spending a great weekend with my Ryan.
Miss Anything? Sushi. Having some serious cravings for that stuff.
Movement: Oh yes. Its been so fun watching my belly go into random spasms. T has kicked Harley on more than 1 occasion and Harley will sit up and tilt her head while watching my stomach. He is not such a lover of when someone is touching the belly. He wont move a muscle and it takes a few minutes for him to get back into the kicking mode.
Food Cravings: Snow cones. There is this little trailer they turned into a snow cone shack and its heavenly. I finally indulged yesterday and got me one. and I savored every last bite.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Hooray for a good week! I haven't been sick for one second. but my smell has all the sudden kicked into stink mode. Everything stinks to me. I will sniff out anything anywhere and that has made it a little harder eating lately. If it stinks I cant eat it.
Gender: BOY. Oh how I cant wait to meet this little man.
Labor Signs: These braxton hicks have not eased up one bit. but nothing more than that.
Symptoms: Back is hurting again, contractions, little energy, super emotional and quite uncomfortable sleeping.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: This week has been better on the irrational emotional side but not so much on the regular emotional side. I tend to cry at the drop of a hat.
for example--- I came home the other day to find an injured bird in my backyard. I called Ryan in sheer panic and was a mess while he told me not to touch it and he would come home and help it. I couldn't wait the 10 more minutes for him to get home and tried to catch the little bird myself but it kept biting me and going into small spaced that I couldn't bend my big fat body around to get it. I sat outside watching it closely until Ryan finally got home and whether it was fear or an instant miracle that damn bird just flew away when Ryan started walking towards it.
That was a very emotional few minutes.
Looking forward to: I am sure all of you have a countdown calendar for baby T so I don't need to tell you that we are just 4 days away from being under 100 days until he makes his appearance. I cant believe it. We are almost out of the triple digits and into the double. Woo Hoo...
I know I have been having a really hard time emotionally lately but I honestly am so happy this little boy is coming into our lives. He is an incredible blessing and there is not a single day that goes by that I don't thank God several times for sending him to us. I spend endless hours imagining what he will look like and who he will grow to be one day. I am so thankful Ryan is going to be his Dad. He is honestly the very best thing to ever happen to me and I am constantly amazed at the person he has grown to be. He is so anxious for T to get here and talks about him all the time. I think about how life would be with Makenzie here on a daily basis. I imagine an almost 3 year old running this house and how life would be with a new baby on the way. I wonder how she would be. I wonder what her personality would be like. That life seems perfect. I know we will have that someday. I know we will all be together again and I just cant wait. I pray we can teach T everything about his sister and he grows up knowing she will forever watch over him. That she is there and that he feels her at all times.
We are just a couple weeks away from the third trimester. We don't have too much time left until our home is full again. Oh what an amazing feeling that will be.
