We’re over halfway! Woo! Baby Johnston is going to be here in less than four months (!!)
Maternity clothes? All day, every day. I have some stretchy non-maternity long sleeve shirts that I thought I would be able to wear forever, but no. The rouching on the sides of maternity shirts is the best. I wore a non-maternity grey shirt the other day, and felt exactly like this:
Sleep: Like a rock, as long as the window is open. Our Sleep Number mattress is the BEST.
Best moment this week: Honestly? Honeycrisp apples. Ohhhhhhhh mannnnn.
Miss Anything? I keep stumbling across the most delicious fall sangria recipes, but none for me :( Also having an actual wardrobe. Although, Bert’s sweaters fit me very well now, although I might have to get some of my own because he doesn’t have a beer belly and I don’t want to stretch his out!
Movement: Yes! All the time! I got little worried yesterday because he wasn’t moving as much, but I think he’s moved around in there to a spot where I can’t feel the kicks as much–he used to kick me square in the bladder (thanks, guy) and now it’s almost right in my right side. So. We’ll see where he’s sitting at my ultrasound this week! Edited to add: Little man JUST got the hiccups, and I can see my whole belly shaking. HILARIOUS.
Food cravings: I haven’t been craving things as intensely lately (except for the Sour Patch Kids episode of last week!), but I’m eating oranges and honeycrisp apples like they’re going out of style. I carry an apple and a jar of peanut butter with me wherever I go. I was waiting for the guys to get back to work some bulls yesterday, just sitting in the sun, munching on my apple and peanut butter, and it was excellent.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The queasiness is gone! I still can’t do chicken and bell peppers, and I’m still not super drawn to sweets. Except for last week, apparently. Heartburn has reared its ugly head, though, but nothing some extra strength tums can’t fix!
Have you started to show yet: Yes, indeed. My evidence: The other night, Bert told me I look like Mike Wazowski from Monster’s Inc. (which I take as a compliment because he has very thin limbs!), and my boss looked at me yesterday and said “Well, I reckon you look like a pregnant lady now!” Oh, and another one of the guys calls me Chubs. I think it’s funny, though, and I’m glad to be past the awkward stage.
Gender prediction: Bobweadababyeetzaboy! Does anyone else remember that commercial? It’s a boy, in case you don’t remember it :)
Labor Signs: Ah, no.
Belly Button in or out? In. Bert keeps asking when it’s going to pop out, haha.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I feel great!
Looking forward to: My appointment next week (I get another ultrasound!), the holidays, finishing weaning next week, and cooler weather. It was EIGHTY degrees yesterday!
