inanimate comparison: thanks to my new iphone app...a chinese cabbage (see pic).
|heh. i wondered too.|
stretch marks: none. i check every day.
sleep: yes, please.
best moment this week: officially hitting the third trimester. so thankful to be at this point.
miss anything?: i think i don't realize what i miss until i think about this question every two weeks. i miss not having back aches but they're so second nature now that i barely notice [until they get bad]. i miss picking things up off the floor on the first attempt. it usually takes 2-3 tries. but, again...i don't necessarily notice. jake asked me if having to pee gets old. and that's another one. i've gotten so used to the feeling of having to pee, that i don't even think about it. ya just get up and go.
movement: i'd say m&m is on the spunky side, but i have nothing to compare it to. movement is non-stop and the bumps keep getting b i g g e r.
cravings: i just enjoy sweets... but that's nothing new.
gender: GIRL!! [joke...still a secret] it's interesting to me that boy has taken the lead on the survey.
labor signs: maybe some braxton hicks. like, one or two a day. nothing painful.
symptoms: back spasms and rib pain. a bath is an absolute must each night. i live for my baths. it's no joke when they say that the first trimester can leave you icky feeling, the second is a breeze and then it starts to turn when you hit the third. spot on.
belly button: still in! i thought for sure it would be out by now.
wedding rings: i'm down to just my engagement ring. much less annoying.
happy or moody?: happy and moody. actually, not moody but tearful. two nights ago, i just started crying in bed. there was absolutely no antecedent to this cry-fest. it just began and then it wouldn't stop. jake was such a trooper. i also cried in traffic this evening. i could n o t be a commuter on a daily basis. i also just have the most overwhelming feeling to want to be home. i love home and being home ...and everything in my house ...and my dog ...and jake and i always just want to be home. is that nesting?
looking forward to: hearing that sweet little heartbeat tomorrow and piecing together the nursery that i have in my imagination. update: today, i want to get neutral bedding. what the...?
|fun with frametastic app.|
