I cannot believe we only have two weeks to go or less or more, hopefully not more:) I know this might sound funny, but I really want to be at home with Nicholas on Jack’s due date because that is Nicholas’s 2nd birthday and I for sure want to be at home for Christmas because we want to be here with Nicholas, I cannot imagine spending Christmas in the hospital without him!! Anyway I know Jack will come when he is supposed to, but I hope it’s before or after December 18th and not right at Christmas either:) Anyhow I am so so late on updating anything lately, but here goes!
Size of Baby B/Developments this Week: According to the doctor he was 6 pounds 9 oz, but that was last week, this week he didn’t even measure me, odd huh, but last week I got a quick ultrasound and found out he is head down and I wasn’t effaced at all! I am sure he is at least 7 pounds plus now!
Weight Gain So Far: 29.5 pounds! I weighed right after Thanksgiving and the weekend so maybe it was a little high, but probably not. I have been having a serious sweet tooth lately for random things (see below)
Cravings: Hmmm chocolate, peanut m and m’s, chocolate pudding, apple jacks, chocolate milk, muddy buddies and more chocolate! Lol! wow! I also have been loving pumpkin chocolate chip bread that I found at Fresh Market, it’s a good thing it all got eaten at Thanksgiving!
Aversions: None other than garlicky things tend to make me wanna gag!
Symptoms: Let’s see I alter between crazy nesting lady with all this energy to exhausted and having to take a short nap when N does. I also have sciatica in full effect in both legs so that is no fun, but been trying to walk it out as I can!
Movement: I feel like Jack is starting to move less, but is still a night owl, he moves more when I eat sweets!
What I Miss: good sleep, sushi rolls, red wine, deli sandwiches that are cold and seasonal beer!
Things I am Thankful For: Derrick, Nicholas, our families and friends and our Christmas lights!
What I’m looking forward to: Working on the nursery some more, hanging out with friends as much as possible before life gets even busier, Christmas, Mops this week and my sister and Mom coming to visit this week!
