How far along: 21 Weeks! Last week of Month 5! How am I seriously almost 6 months?!
Baby’s size: 12.7 oz and 10.51 inches long. This week bed bug is the size of a Large Brioche a Tete. Can’t say I have a single clue what it is but it looks tasty so we will assume as such. I seriously feel like I need an education in delicate desserts after all these size comparisons. Perhaps, that will be what I do while breastfeeding this baby. Parisian Bakery for Dummies, anyone?!?
Sleep: I’m still having some weird left side lower back pain or should I say ache. It’s incredibly annoying and once it starts it will not go away until I’m up and out of bed. I’ve never had pain on the left before since it’s usually on the right as an after-effect from my last epidural. Hoping some stretching will help.
Best moment this week: We had a full but fun weekend with friends and minus the sickness it was really nice to socialize.
Worst moment this week: I’m knee deep in vomit over here. Mason got a bug Friday, Gavin on Sunday night/Monday and Logan on Tuesday. It was all completed today when Gavin pooped some delicious diarrhea all over the front of my shirt. I can now go the rest of my life without cleaning up throw up or poo and I’m trying to work up the energy to continue cloroxing everything. We’ve gone through about 4 bottles of pedialyte and a life time supply of chicken noodle soup and crackers. I’m very much ready for a mommy vacation.
Movement: I can feel him roll around now which means he is definitely getting bigger. he seems to be hanging out pretty low but I have a feeling that’s because my placenta is up top and is pushing him down towards my cervix.
Cravings: Still craving some breadsticks but nothing else really. Last night I wanted something salty and crunchy but, alas, we did not have anything so I settled for snuggles on the couch instead.
Missing Anything: Energy! I’m feeling really, really tired these days. I seem to have lost my second trimester energy. Work has been slammed due to the impending holidays and with sickness and lack of sleep…I’m pretty tired.
Queasy or sick: Nothing this week.
Looking forward to: Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating this weekend. I finally got all of my fall decor taken down so the house is bare and ready for some christmas decor. I also have almost all of the christmas present wrapped and ready to go and we will be going to pick out our tree either Friday or Saturday. This is always my favorite family tradition and I’m super excited to get on it. haha
Baby Item of the Week: We finally got the crib in….. but since it’s currently in the box….no picture will be had. However, I should be able to get started on the nursery come Monday. The downstairs room is basically done being painted, minus a few little touch ups. So hopefully after christmas decorating we can start the big move downstairs to the man cave. Speaking of….if anyone has any suggestions for a fun boy space let me know. We are going to turn the former office into a smaller office/boys area so I’m searching for some cool ideas. Thanks, everyone!
