Baby is the size of… a rutabaga
Highlight of the Week… Husband and I have answered all kinds of important newborn-raising questions this week and it’s refreshing to have the weight off our shoulders. We also mapped out a bunch of to-dos and booked a birthing class with our hospital. I know this doesn’t sound like much of a highlight but we’re feeling more prepared and less panicky that we’re missing something. Less stress is always a highlight!
Frustration of the Week… The belly has been going through a growth spurt this week. Lots of ligament pain and for the first time, lower back pain. I bought a belly band to help alleviate the discomfort, but man, this discomfort suuucks. Silver lining is that means baby is healthy and growing, right?! Focus on the silver lining.
Eating a lot of… Seaweed Snack! I seriously can’t get enough of these things! And trail mix.
Cute Thing Hubby Did This Week… Wednesday was my birthday and my husband got me the most thoughtful pregnancy gift – bath accessories. As mentioned, my belly is in major growth mode and I’ve been uncomfortable for the past couple of weeks. The only respites have been the pool and warm baths. Enter my hero of a husband with a cushy tub pillow and an extending bath caddy for all my relaxing needs. Absolutely delightful!
A Tidbit… I couldn’t post an update without including this incredibly sweet photo.
