How Far Along: 24 weeks!
What is Baby G Up To?: Moving and grooving. Keeping me up at night with all this bouncing around. Baby G is the size of a cantaloupe, which, for the first time, feels like an accurate fruit to compare to.
How I’m Feeling: I aggravated an older soccer injury in my tailbone that has been giving me some serious pain! I’ve also been letting these crazy hormones get the best of me. This weekend I spent a lot of time trying to distract myself from how overwhelmed I feel.
What I’m Wearing: Comfortable shoes!
What’s On My Mind Lately: A lot. Too much, really, and between this winter weather and raging hormones, all I want to do is go to bed and wake up in May when it’s time to meet Baby G. Work continues to be stressful and David’s school is back in full swing, which adds another layer of crazy. My birthday is next week, which seems insane to me! Wasn’t it just Christmas? And now we are looking at mid-February?!
What I’m Craving: I’m not craving anything specific, but when I see someone eating or drinking something, I immediately need it. The other day I found myself drooling over someone’s Vitamin Water, something I haven’t had in years! But I had to have one right away, so I drove to a gas station and picked one up. It’s safe to say my cravings are based off of what everyone else is eating and drinking.
What I’m Looking Forward To: My birthday! I was always scared that when I started really showing that most interactions with people would be based around questions regarding the baby. But my birthday will be one day where Pregnant Erica is just Erica, and I think that’s pretty awesome!
Best Moment of the Week: My boss had a baby last June and she brought in some extra diapers and pacifiers for us last week. Along with that she brought in a fetal heart monitor and a book for new moms. It was such a sweet gesture and we had a lot of fun playing with the monitor over the weekend.
