Baby is growing! These last few weeks baby and I are on a major growth spurt (finally)!
I mentioned the weird dreams last week in the symptoms section, well – they got worse. I went from never remembering a nights sleep, to waking up not wanting to go back to sleep to find out how the dream ends. These pregnancy dreams I’m having aren’t sweet and innocent where I dream of holding and cuddling with my new baby. They are random situations where quite honestly I am being really mean and nasty to others. Maybe all of my true feelings or suppressed thoughts are coming out in my dreams – but all I know is I am pretty awful in my dreams!
I’m a nice person, so why in my preggo dreams am I so darn mean?
Most exciting this week is we got a new camera. I could say it was for the baby, but I think mommy and daddy want it equally as bad. We’ve been using our (very old) DSLR for awhile now and with the size and weight of it, I don’t bring it out to as many places as I would like. With a smaller and lighter camera I plan on taking a lot more higher quality photos! I love it so far!
We also received the cutest baby blanket yet!! We love that baby E will be stylin’ with mustaches from day 1!
Size of Baby E: Mango
Best moment of the week: Last night I couldn’t sleep, and at 1 AM when it was just me and baby and Josh sleeping soundly next to me… I felt the first kick! It was light and a barely there tap but it melted my heart and made my week! Can’t wait for more kicks!
Obsessions/Cravings? Milk. Milk in cereal, milk in smoothies, milk after dinner. This week I’ve been drinking a lot of milk.
What I’m most looking forward to this week: Driving up to Chicago to spend a birthday weekend with my bestest!
What I miss the most: Beer. If you know me, you know that I’m a wine drinker, but this week Josh opened up a beer and the smell of it alone made me miss it so much!
Workouts: Still running 2 – 3 times a week (slow ish), walking 2 ish times a week and doing weights the other nights.
Sleep: Still restless, it’s taking me longer and longer to fall asleep each night – catching a case of insomnia!
Movement: I felt my first kick on Monday night. The lightest smallest tap but it made my whole week!
Symptoms: Feeling mostly good, I still have days that I am really really tired. Acne has its better days but mostly worse days. Peeing constantly is a norm now.
