Many people at work told me that I popped this week–which I must admit, I sort of agree. Every time I look down, BAM, baby bump is there and when I sit down I find myself resting my arms on top of my bump. All of a sudden wearing normal pants are out of the question (for real now, I can’t even pretend to fit into any of my normal pants). Luckily I found some very comfy work maternity pants and bought three pairs in three different colors.
The only real notable thing that happened this week was that I shut the car door on myself. I must admit, I am slightly embarrassed to share this but I am almost sure that somebody else had to have done this before. I was getting something out of my car and I thought I had room to clear myself–all of myself, including baby bump–so I went to shut the car door. Nope. The door did not clear my bump. Ouch, but luckily I did not shut the door too hard, so everything is ok, minus my ego.
Baby is the size of a spaghetti squash this week.
MATERNITY CLOTHES? Yep. Pants are a must now. I am still sort of getting away with wearing normal shirts, but the maternity ones are much more comfortable. Leggings are pretty wonderful as well!
SLEEP: Some days I sleep pretty well, others I am awake 90% of the night..
MOVEMENT: She loves to move around at night–right when I am about ready to go to sleep. She also tends to move every time I stop moving for awhile.
CRAVINGS: Tart apples and cottage cheese
EW, GROSS: Right now, nothing.
