How far along are you? 26 weeks
Total weight gain: 15+ lbs
Maternity Clothes? Mostly.
Stretch Marks? None on the belly.
Sleep: It's weird. I have good naps, but sleeping comfortably through the night is getting difficult. Have I mentioned that we've been sleeping on a full-size mattress? We've had it from the beginning of our marriage. It's always been kind of a tight fit for us, but now that I'm getting bigger, it's just getting too small. Plus I bought a body pillow, which I obviously don't regret, but it makes for less room, ha. I'm looking forward to getting a bigger bed when Ryan gets his first couple of paychecks ;)
Best moments: Shopping for Ryan's first Father's Day present and writing him a card.
Missing anything? Ibuprofen
Movement? Yes! It's more rapid and her kicks have even hurt a couple of times.
Food Cravings: Banana Nutella crepes.
Belly Button in or Out? So shallow!
Happy or Moody? Moody. Mostly because I'm afraid I'll never make friends! Ha. But it's only been a week, so.
Looking Forward to: Catching up on Netflix. How sad is that? I suppose I can start a new book. I just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars for the second time, so I plan on seeing that in the theater. Any good books you can recommend?
My goals for this week include:
1. Finding an OBGYN or midwife.
2. Starting a new book
3. Putting the rest of these random boxes away
4. Organizing the kitchen
5. Hanging some photos/art/decor?
6. Finding the library
7. Becoming a little more acquainted with this city
That last one though. So far I can drive to the grocery store, church, the hospital, Ryan's work, Target, and the mall without my iPhone giving me directions at every turn (that's all I really need, right??). Amazingly, all these locations are 5 minutes away or less from our apartment. (Great location, huh?) My bubble is very small. Speaking of the mall, I took my first visit last night. I stepped into a Lush Cosmetics store for the first time and walked out with an amazing perfume. I never wear perfume, but I can see myself wearing this one daily. It smells like jasmine. There were so many fun things that store has to offer, but I resisted.
In other news, we did not visit the zoo as planned, but today Ryan signed us up for a couple of Pogo-Passes. They were on sale for $40 each! Those allow us two visits to the zoo, two visits to the aquarium, the bowling alley, a water park, etc. I can't really go to a water park, and there are a couple of other places on the pass that would be pointless for me to visit, but even if we just use it for the zoo and aquarium it's still a pretty good deal. Is bowling safe for pregnant women...?
And before I forget, Happy Father's Day! We are eating nachos for dinner and I might be too excited about that.
