How far along: 24 Weeks and totally feeling it.
Gender: G I R L!
Weight gain: 15lbs + …I don’t know the actual number as I don’t own a scale but I have a dr’s appt next week, so we shall see. Also I’m fairly certain it will be a significant change as 1) baby girl is growing a ton and 2) THANKSGIVING…gimme all the stuffing.
Maternity clothes: Yep, pretty much. Mostly maternity bottoms because this belly ain’t going anywhere! I’m thinking of getting some cute maternity black tights so I can still rock some cute dresses as it’s getting colder out there! Yay Fall, happy you’re here. Hashtag, always warm.
Stretch Marks: No new ones. Varicose vein is ugly + M A D.
Belly button In or Out: I don’t even know anymore. Like, just…there?
Sleep: I WANT ALL OF IT. I think this little chiquita banana is growing a ton because I feel exceptionally more tired sooooo yeah, I could always have more. I had been trying to not nap during the day so I could do some work buttttt ya know, when you lay down with your cuddly + sweet-smelling toddler, it just happens! So. Yeah. GIMME ALL THE SLEEP PLEASE.
Best moment this week: This week was pretty chill pregnancy-wise but I am loving the fall weather + George and I have been relaxing and staying cozy together. This is truly the greatest time of my life. And I feel so flippin’ thankful to be home with my babies (Oh hubs, I just adore you for helping this dream of mine happen!). OH! And my first hbxolips order came in the mail + it felt like Christmas morning–I was so excited to package the goodies up + send them off! That was a total highlight business-wise!
Miss anything: Coffee. I mean, I’ve been having a REAL cup of coffee in the morning but sometimes I just want another + I really try to limit my caffeine while pregnant. Looking forward to enjoying multiple cups of coffee once sissy arrives (and I’ll definitely get used to drinking them cold again…ha.). And wine! I’m not even a huge drinker but I love having the option of a nice glass of red wine. Mmm.
Movement: Yes! Little girl is such a busy body! She is still a lot more gentle than George was (ha) but she definitely likes to shake her booty in there.
Cravings: Ranch dressing. Stuffing (I CAN’T WAIT! I’m making this recipe + it is literally hands-down the flippin’ best!). Instant hot chocolate. Steak. Sushi. OLIVES.
Looking forward to: Seeing my family this upcoming long weekend!! Ottawa is so beautiful in the fall so I am excited to be there–it’s always very inspiring to me. AND I get to see my nieces!!!!!!!! And kiss their little faces! Oh, and eat allllll the thanksgiving food (we have TWO dinners to go to–lucky us!) so I’m going to get my eating on!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I am thankful for each and every one of you.
Thank you for reading + supporting + for loving on my little family and me so dang much!
