How far along: 21 Weeks
Maternity clothes: Since being in Chicago this week, I feel like all I wear are big hoodies and gym clothes. They are baggy on me, so often I even forget that I am pregnant, until I bend over to grab something or someone asks me about the baby. I wish I was more stylish, but I feel like now is not the time to turn over that new leaf..haha.
Stretch marks: No.I didn’t get them with Olivia, but wonder if I will with him.
Sleep: So So.. I’ve always been a bad sleeper since I became a mom. I’m hoping to get more naps in this week while Mike is sleeping away from this chemo treatment. It’s weird to see my husband sleep more than I am!
Best moment this week: Flying to Chicago and exploring the city. Going to the Chicago Children’s Museum and The “Bean”. This little guy will see all of these pictures and know he was in my belly. Hopefully one day I can bring him back and have some fun with him here.
Miss anything: Stylish clothes. I think it is on the brain, because my hotel was a half a mile from the Magnificent Mile, where there were so many cute clothing stores. I admit I was coveting when I shouldn’t have been.
Morning sickness: None. Both pregnancies. I have been very lucky!
Movement: His fluttering is a lot harder this week, which means he is getting a lot stronger! I love it, because he lets me know he is there and hanging out and I don’t have to worry about him.
Food cravings: I swear I am hungry all of the time. I want sweets now more than ever…especially ice cream and candy. I really like to eat eggs and toast too. I hated eggs when I was pregnant with Olivia.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not getting enough sleep. I get really emotional and crazy too when I haven’t had a nap or it’s been a strenuous day!
Have you started to show yet: Yes. Still huge as ever.
Gender prediction: Boy.
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: Still flat and weird.
Wedding rings on or off: Off. I left them in Las Cruces, so I wouldn’t lose them. I always do that on trips for some reason. I’m notorious for losing things on trips (including this week, when I lost my drivers license on the streets of Chicago and now have to walk around with a temporary one until my mom can mail me my new one).
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody. Mike says I have gotten meaner (not to him, just mean in general about things). I’ve noticed I’ve turned really grumpy too and it drives me nuts. I even dream about being mad. It’s super crazy.
Looking forward to: Hanging out in Aurora this week and visiting the Science and Industry Museum on Saturday.
