Craving - I have finally kicked the bucket on my fast food cravings. It sounded so good for so long, but now all I crave are salads and fresh fruit. I still crave chocolate like crazy. Luckily we went to Cheesecake Factory this weekend and I got my S'mores cheesecake fix. I have been munching on it for days now. I also can't get enough water. I usually struggle to drink any water, but recently I'm guzzling a bottle every chance I can get.
Sleep - has surprisingly been great. I remember being so much more uncomfortable with P. I am still only sleeping with one pillow and as long as I take my heart burn medication, I get a solid nights rest.
Movement - It has been fun over the past few weeks to notice the movement increase. I am reminded often that I have a strong little girl growing inside of me. I love being able to distinguish her little feet and hands.
Missing - Shaving, painting my toes and buckling my shoes has become much more difficult. I have been trying to convince Tyson that it's time to get me another pair of Birkenstocks so I don't have to bend over to buckle my shoes. Please Babe?!
Belly Button - Still hanging in there. The Linea Nigra line has yet to make an appearance. I swear I had it by now with P, but maybe this pregnancy it will remain a no go. No complaints about that here.
Maternity Clothes - I feel like I have been wearing the same clothes day in and day out, so I decided to make a little trip to Destination Maternity. It always feels so good to pick up a few new items. I also purchased the Belly Bandit. Will see if it works the miracles people swear by.
Stretch Marks - Skin is staying in tact so far. My belly feels like it is getting huge though, so I'm not sure how much more it can take.
Swelling - I have only noticed swelling in my legs and ankles after sitting for a long period of time or getting over heated. Usually I'm blasting my A/C or chasing my toddler around, so it doesn't happen often. I strongly believe working out has made ALL the difference.
Symptoms - For some reason I get extreme anxiety my third trimester of pregnancy. It's not very fun, but I have an amazing husband who helps ease the anxiety and a mom and sister who let me vent whenever needed. Hopefully with moving into the new home this weekend a big weight will be lifted.
Overall Mood - Physically my body is holding up strong. I am so grateful that this pregnancy has been sooo much easier. My back has stayed in tact 100% and I couldn't be more thankful. I remain in the same size of shoes and I can type without my hands cramping. I can even eat chocolate before bed and not get woken up with severe acid reflux.
Looking forward to - Moving into our new house this weekend and having my mom come visit next week!
Highlight of the week - Thursday afternoon my mother-in-law took P to her My Gym class and the put her down for her nap, at her house. This allowed me to make a Target run, grab some lunch, mop my floors, shower and straighten my hair. I felt like a new woman. I'm not sure she will ever know how much I needed that break and how much it meant to me.
