This past weekend was my husband's Grandparent's 50th Anniversary celebration, so the family got together for pretty much the entire weekend, which was crazy and exhausting! We did, however, get together for some family photos and because the photographer was a good friend of mine, we snuck in a few pregnancy shots since I was all dressed up for it!
I can't believe how much I love, love, love this photo! I normally hate pictures of myself, but I really like this one - it makes me happy! I want to say the dress makes me happy too - $25 from the sale rack at the Gap. Oh, yeah!
How far along? 28 weeks – just starting the third trimester!
Weight gain/loss: I actually used my scale this past week, and if I have gained anything, it's not more than 5lbs.
How Big is Baby? According to www.babycenter.ca baby is nearly 2.3lbs, and up to 15inches from head to toe!
Feeling: Not too bad this week. I had a burst of energy on Monday and my husband and I managed to get some of the really disgusting bits of housework done, which makes living in it a little bit more enjoyable :)
Maternity Clothes? Check out the Gap dress in the photo above – not a maternity dress, I'd like to mention, it just had a high enough waist to accommodate!
Sleep: I had wanted to get one of those pregnancy body pillows, but I just can't justify spending $60+ on a pillow that I'll only use for another few months and then probably never again... :( I did, however, pull my old twin size comforter that I used in college out of the closet and rolled it up to use in place of a maternity pillow – and although I've never used a fancy maternity pillow, I think this works just as well!
Food Cravings: Nothing...
Food Aversions: Everything...
What I miss? Dreamless sleep.
Best Moment this week: We spent a relaxing Monday making up for our crazy weekend – had friends over and ate pizza in the backyard – it was great!
Baby Preparations? I suppose we really should get on this...
What I'm looking forward to: This Saturday is my hubby's birthday weekend, and we have a lunch date planned and then an afternoon of Oil & Vinegar tasting (there's this awesome shop that just moved into town that carries about a billion flavours of Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar and we're going to check it out!) and wandering the shops! So excited!
Next Appointment: August 14th – a week from today.
Milestones: She may have fingernails!
