Due Date: 12/31/2016 New Year's Eve!
Baby is the Size of: An Rutabaga! Baby is measuring 9" from crown to rump. We had our echo ultrasound on Monday and Rory weighed in at 1 lb 13 oz! The Doctor said she is definitely a big baby. Technically she still falls in the "normal" range but she's on the very high end.
Weight Gain: 17 lbs. I got 3 days of walking in this week! We had to do some walking at the concert, walked a lot at the fair, and then we squeezed in a walk with the dogs last night. It looks like it's going to be too hot for walking this week but I'm hoping to squeeze in 1 night of walking and then maybe I can try to get back into doing prenatal yoga and some very light weight lifting and what not. We'll see how my energy level is, plus this weekend is very busy. My hips, lower back, and feet were killing me last night after all of that walking.
Symptoms: Nausea, headaches, sore sensitive boobs, bloating, moody, fatigue, lightening crotch, sciatic nerve pain, calf cramps, round ligament pain, and a little bit of heartburn. Still taking 1 morning sickness pill before bed.
Name: Rory Brielle
Movement: Yes! I usually feel her at least once a day but it definitely isn't that noticeable if I'm really busy. I usually feel her when I'm laying down.
Nursery: We're going with a woodland/ woodland critters and floral theme. The nursery is painted, the curtain rod and curtains are hung up, crib is put together, and some wall art has been put up. I'm still working on finishing the closet dividers and some of the DIY decor for her gallery wall.
Apparently we don't just suck at doing paw prints, we also suck at hand prints but in a way, I still kind of love it. When Rory is born, we will add her hand print over top of ours in peach.
I painted a frame from A.C. Moore mint to go with her nursery color scheme and then bought this downloadable file of a silver fox off of Etsy.
And I finally got around to hot gluing the flower on Rory's "R" for her gallery wall. Now all that is left for her gallery wall is to do the baby shower card heart cut out display after the baby shower and then we can put it all up!
Sleep: Still tired, nothing new here.
Best Moment(s) of the Week:
-Seeing Rory on the echo ultrasound. I love seeing our little girl! Everything looked great on the echo and we got the news that Rory is a big baby. Everyone says she looks so much like Jesse.
Oh yea and the new season of American Horror Story started! What do y'all think?
Cravings & Aversions: Rice (and Chipotle- that's a given), donuts, brownies, cupcakes, cookies, mozzarella sticks, string cheese, fruit, and fresh veggies (mainly fresh raw green peppers), did I say donuts?, chocolate, Belgian waffles, s'mores, and Olive Garden's black tie mousse cake. This little girl has some good taste!
Aversions... Still the same. Grilled chicken (unless it is like overdone and crispyish), nuts, spinach & artichoke dip, and biscuits.
Mood: Very happy but getting very easily annoyed.
Looking Forward to: My baby shower on Sunday!!! I seriously cannot wait and on Saturday is my sister and step sister's appointment to pick out their MOH and Bridesmaid dresses!
Have a great week!!!
