Maternity clothes? Yes. Starting to feel like ten pounds of s*** in a five pound bag.
Stretch marks? None yet
Sleep: Sleep is good...I just can't seem to get enough.
Best moment this week: Rolling into 2013...the year our baby will be born!! it seemed so far away but now here we are!
Miss Anything? Oh the things we take for granted! It has gotten really hard for me to bend over. If I drop something, I am getting really cleaver at using my feet to pick them up!
Movement: Still lots of movement & baby hiccups.. I know I will miss this feeling so much.
Food cravings: Anything from "The Floridian." Josh and I ate there on Christmas Eve. And it was amazing. Everything on their menu is so inventive and creative...and well, just amazing. I had tempeh for the first time and it was incredible. I honestly didn't really even know what I was ordering, but I thought I would give it a whirl. For those of you who have no idea what it is... From wikipedia.org..."Tempeh, is a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form, similar to a very firm vegetarian burger patty. It originated in today's Indonesia, and is especially popular on the island of Java, where it is a staple source of protein. Like tofu, tempeh is made from soybeans, but it is a whole soybean product with different nutritional characteristics and textural qualities. Tempeh's fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins. It has a firm texture and an earthy flavor which becomes more pronounced as it ages."
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really..but the Cornish hens I made for Christmas Dinner were hard for me to look at. Not sure if it's because I'm pregnant or what, but they just looked like little babies. I had a hard time cooking them.
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Heartburn and swelling in my calves/feet and hands. Sodium is the enemy.
Belly Button in or out? Still in. Barely.
Wedding rings on or off? Off :(
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: 2013 is right around the corner!
I went to my first class the other night...Breastfeeding 101. Wowza! I am going to give it a go! We go to our Childbirth class soon too! D-Day is quickly approaching! We need to get the hospital bag packed! (I started packing Juliette's bag last night! I can't decide on what clothes to bring her!)
Josh got me an awesome camera for Christmas! I have been reading up on how to take great pictures so the pictures on here should start to get MUCH better! I found a great blog that has some wonderful hints for not-so-professional-yet-wannabe-professional-photographers...Kevin & Amanda. Thanks Lovee! Some of my pics I've taken so far...
