So we think we may have decided on a first name. Not going to tell you, sorry. I’m still not 100% sure, and still have no clue on the middle. But we’ve still got some time, right?
This week I probably need to get myself together and make a list of things I need to do. Thankfully, we do have all the baby stuff, so it’s mostly just getting diapers, sorting through and washing clothes (because I definitely wasn’t organized enough to sort them when I put them away!), and buying snacks for post-baby. I just remember being so ravenously hungry the first few weeks after Jack was born. In the middle of the night I’d get up and eat an apple because hunger was keeping me awake when Jack wasn’t. I should also probably make some freezer meals, but knowing myself, I probably won’t ever actually do that.
How far along? 32 weeks, 6 days
Baby is the size of: A Pomelo, Pan d’epi, a plastic scooter board, or a Naked-tailed Armadillo
Total weight gain: I don’t really want to know at this point.
Maternity clothes? At this point I really miss my clothes. I feel so silly working out because it’s not like I have maternity workout clothes so I look a little ridiculous. Thankfully it’s the privacy of my own home, and Josh is the only person subjected to my ill-fitting garb.
Sleep: Having a harder and harder time going back to sleep if I wake up. Woke up to a leg cramp at 5am the other morning on my day to sleep in! Rolling over is quite a task now.
Best moment this week: Got to go to the park yesterday and just watch my little boy explore. Jack explores everywhere he goes. He takes it all in. If it’s a new place with a lot going on, usually he’ll stay close or hold our hands at first before taking off. But he’s still pretty new to this world. Everything is a discovery. This challenges me so much about how I see the world. I am a new creation in Christ. How can I explore the world walking in that as my identity? It’s so easy to get stuck in routine and not open my eyes to all that there is around me. Learning so much from my little boy all the time.
Movement: This guy doesn’t seem to be rolling all over the place as much as LBJ did. Just kicks here and there. I think he will probably end up being more laid back than Jack. Only time will tell!
Food cravings: This week I’ve been eating A LOT of tomato and mashed avocado. I’ve gone LA and had avocado toast for a meal like 4 times this week. I’ve also eaten a lot of candy because I. CAN’T. ESCAPE. IT.
Exercise? Being so good about my workouts despite the lack of desire. I’m motivating myself by thinking of how I’ll feel afterwards, and that it seems to keep lots of typical pregnancy symptoms at bay.
Miss Anything? Having more energy to chase LBJ around. It’s getting harder!
Symptoms: Quite a few stretch marks now underneath my belly button. I still have a belly button, so that’s nice. I definitely feel big, but I feel pretty good overall, no swelling or anything.
Mood? This week I was kind of exhausted, but was able to get some good rest mid-week. We had such a fun Easter and it was cool because we saw so many people decide to follow Jesus, which is always worth celebrating. Feeling very thankful for so many things and excited about what lies ahead in the future. Excited to learn what life will be like with LB2.
Looking forward to: Meeting my little newborn soon.
Thanks for joining me on my pregnancy journey!
Until next week,
