I've really been feeling great which is such a blessing. The hip/round ligament pain I had a few weeks ago has mostly resolved even without the OMT appointment I thought I would be getting. My belly is growing and I've started to notice my abs almost feel sore, like I've been to the gym, but I know it's from the stretching. My energy is much more manageable, I've yet to have any heartburn, stretch marks, or anything else equally annoying and am really just loving being pregnant. Now I would especially love if I could start feeling this avocado sized baby squirm around already. I know I may have a few more weeks until this happens but I still lay extra still every once in a while just to trick myself into thinking gas is the babe.
Wednesday night J and I headed to a JBF sale near us to scope out baby gear and it was so much fun. Well, not the crowd/overwhelming nature of it but the fact that we finally bought some baby stuff was so fun. We came home with an awesome Graco duet swing/bouncer, a high chair in great shape, a video baby monitor, a Baby Bjorn Synergy carrier complete with cover for colder months, an Infantino Mei Tai wrap carrier and an extra bouncer for my mom's house. And we paid less than what the swing plus the high chair would have been brand new! The best part is that I can't help but smile when I walk by the guest room/soon-to-be nursery and see the baby gear sitting in there waiting for the little one.
This week was also extra special because J and I went to lunch with his mom on Friday and I met with my mom from frozen yogurt on Saturday. We're both so thankful to be going through this stage in life close to our families and love when we're able to spend time with them. Being busy makes it hard to see them often but that much more special when we finally get to. Not to mention that conversation tends to wander to baby talk quite often which I love.
We have our 16-week doctors appointment at the end of the week and then it's only one more month until our big anatomy scan where we get to peak at the peanut again. You're doing great in there little one, keep up the good work!
