Size of the baby: a navel orange (about 4.5 in, 2 to 3 oz)
Total Weight Gain: 6 lbs
Maternity Clothes: I have bought several maternity tanks and tops to fit me better, but mainly wearing roomy dresses and drawstring shorts.
Gender: Unknown, I have a hunch!
Movement: The last week I have felt some strange "twinges" but unsure what they are, could be the ligaments stretching and making room for baby. Hope to feel some real movement soon!
Sleep: Sleeping really hard at times, other times I stay awake just thinking.
What I miss: I miss feeling energetic. Some energy is coming back, thankfully!
Symptoms: Morning sickness has come back and bitten me! I am waking up around 4am or 5am and feeling very ill. Nothing a zofran won't cure ... but I'm just ready not to take any meds for nausea!
Cravings: I have been wanting Gang Dang Red Curry dish from Bangkok Alley. It has been making my mouth salivate just thinking about it. So the nearest BA is in Collierville - so I drove 30 minutes to get Red Curry to go. I know, ridiculous .... but I HAD to have it. Of course on the way over to pick it up I was starting to feel a little ill and needed to eat stat. As soon as I paid and picked it up, I was going to get a bite in while in the car. As I drive away, I realize there is no silverware! AHHH the horror! I got home in a flash and tore the Gang Dang up.... twice! Once at dinner time and again at 9:30pm.
Weekly Wisdom: The food you often crave does not satisfy you. What's up with that?
Best Moment of the Week: Hearing baby's heartbeat this past week.
Looking forward to: Vacationing in Colorado with my family & traveling with my nephew!
Today I was so excited to be a part of Robyn's baby brunch shower! I was able to help host and we had a blast. Baby Korbyn will be here in less than a month, so exciting!
At our fabulous brunch we had fruit, ham and cheese rolls, breakfast casseroles, monkey bread, and cheese grits. Also - my favorite - was coffee punch! I am going to add the recipe here because it was so delicious, it was more like a dessert. Super easy, try it sometime!
1/3 cup instant coffee
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup HOT water
1/2 gallon milk
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream
Mix coffee, sugar, and hot water.
Add ice creams. (soften)
Serve and enjoy!
A photo of Rachel and I with the Mama-to-be-very-soon!
A friend of mine had used this "survey" on her blog and I thought it was a great way to keep family and friends updated, so I'm borrowing the idea from her (Thanks Lea!) Excuse the room I am in, we are in the middle of clearing it out to make it the guest bedroom. No makeup and hair was a mess this day, so no face in the photo :)
How Far Along: 14 Weeks
Size of the baby: The size of a lemon (approximately 3.5 inches)
Total Weight Gain: Really? About 5 lbs (this part of the survey may accidentally be deleted one day.....)
Maternity Clothes: My sister gave me two pairs of her maternity jeans, and I admit I have worn them a few times because they are so darn comfortable! But, still in normal clothes with the help of the rubberband trick - but have bought a few tops with a little more room! My favorite find so far are the Target maternity tanks, great for summer (pictured above).
Gender: Do not know... not finding out until the day I deliver! (...will we cave before then??)
Movement: Not yet, can't wait!
Sleep: No more good, restful sleeping! I get up at least 2 times to use the restroom. I also have to get up and take a zofran around 5:00am to prevent morning sickness! Hoping that will leave me REAL soon :)
What I miss: Picking my nephew up... the doc banned me from lifting heavy things after a few problems earlier in the pregnancy.
Symptoms: New this week: strange skin rashes - not sure if they are pregnancy related or not, but will have my OB check them out this week. Also, I'm finding I have a tougher time breathing and catching my breath. In the past few days, my nose has become stuffy all of the time. I hear pregnancy rhinitis is common and will only get worse.... where is my neti pot?
Cravings: I really want a deep-fried Philly Roll from our sushi place, but can not have the raw salmon.
Weekly Wisdom: I cannot workout at the pace I used to... take it easy and drink plenty of water!
Best Moment of the Week: Celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary at Bonefish Grill! Love you G.
Looking forward to: Our next OB appointment this Thursday!
Happy 3rd Anniversary to my sweet, loving husband - Can not believe it has been 3 years! We celebrated tonight by going to Bonefish Grill, our favorite! Our official anniversary is on Monday, but celebrated tonight. Of course we went early because these days I hit the hay fairly early. Who am I kidding? REALLY early.... Here are some pics we took!
