where: work, life group 

the past week went so fast! here’s a quick update:

  • we are trying to get a few things checked off our to-do list, like buying items for the nursery, finding a pediatrician and child care, and registering for a birth class. up until now i feel like we’ve been in denial that we’re going to have a baby.
  • last week i had dizziness/nausea for three consecutive evenings. i’m still not sure what was the cause of that, but i’m glad it has decided to pass!
  • i’ve been sleeping really well! (yea for body pillows!)
  • i’m occasionally having cramping/contractions when i stand in one place for a while, typically in the afternoon/evenings. it doesn’t sound like anything to worry about, but just to keep monitoring it.
  • i know two people who had baby boys last week. we’ve got four months to go, but it made me feel ready to meet my baby!
  • hearing your husband tell you that he loves your belly is good for the soul.
  • he also told me my feet are getting puffy…oh no!
  • total weight gain so far = 6 pounds (they want me to gain 30 total).
