Ok so I have decided that this week’s little thing will be my 8 week “bumpdate”. I know they are kind of silly but I think you people may actually care about little Olaf, so here we go! These will be few and far between at first, and then when I get closer to the end I will update more often. I got these super lame belly stickers for “bump” pictures so I will just update when it’s time for a new bump shot.
By the way? Hate these pictures. I got a maternity dress so I can wear the same thing for each picture and I feel frumpy and gross. Plus the lighting is terrible and ugh I really don’t like it. Unfortunately since I KNOW we will be moving before baby is born… we don’t have a particular “spot” to take all the pictures. Plus I just woke up from a 3 hour couch nap. Moral of the story I think this sucks but it will have to do for now…
(especially because this is my “8 week” picture and I am already 9 weeks…)
Baby Olaf 8 Week “Bumpdate”
Weight Gain: When I went to the doctor last month, I had gained 1 lb. I am pretty sure I have gained AT LEAST 10 more. Not because of baby, but because of snacks.
Stretch Marks: None, but I am already worried about them.
Movement: Just gas.
How I’m Feeling: Overall? Really good. I have moments of nausea, and I am absolutely exhausted at the end of the day… but I am not complaining AT ALL. So far pregnancy has been a total breeze, and I would really like it to stay that way!
Sleep: … this is actually an issue. Mostly because of the dog, not the baby. Hula refuses to sleep anywhere other than right next to my belly – and she REFUSES to move. I usually head up to bed before Brandon so I can fall asleep before he gets in… then when I wake up at 3 am to pee……. all bets are off. Occasionally I will be able to fall back asleep, but usually I toss and turn and keep trying to get the dog to move.
Food: … is delicious. All of it, all the time. Snacking is out of control, but I think the reason I usually feel okay is because I’m usually eating. I’ve mentioned before I am still trying to avoid gluten but I am not trying that hard…
Workouts: I have been doing a great job of sticking to my workout plan! I had a 15 mile bike ride last weekend and I think that is my very top limit. I have a few 20 mile rides scheduled, but since the ride at my upcoming triathlon is only 10 miles I have decided to max out at 15. I will most likely stick to 12.
Maternity Clothes: I bought one dress for the pictures above, and two tank tops (white and black) – but I don’t need to be wearing them yet. Those tanks sure are comfortable though! And I adore how long they are!!! I have mostly been wearing dresses because there is more wiggle room in them. Pants suck.
Baby Items: I’ve started looking… but no buying.
Best Moment This Week: No real “moment” … but it is crazy every morning feeling that little ridge get bigger and bigger…
