This week equals worst week ever. I’m really glad to see 31 coming to a close, it’s been quite the roller coaster of a week. But the best part is Wes’ baby cousin was born on Tuesday meaning we are just a month and a half away from meeting our little one.
Baby Size: This week Wes is about the size of a large Squash. He is closing in on 4 lbs and around 16.6 inches long.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks has been the word of the week. These practice contractions are getting stronger and more annoying.
Currently Missing: Being able to bend over. I pretty much give up on anything that hits the floor these days. Being able to paint my toes is also a lost cause now.
Sleep: This week has been really rough in the sleep department. With a sick toddler and then catching the bug myself, I’ve had several nights of 3ish hours of sleep. If this is mother natures way of prepping me for a newborn, it’s really cruel.
Cravings and favorite foods: Nothing these days.
Mood: My mood this week has been exhausted and impatient. I think had I not been sick, this would still be my mood. It’s the third trimester ready-for-this-to-be-over mentality.
Maternity clothes: This week has been all about the stretchy pants and Chris’ t-shirts. I’m also really loving these nursing tank tops I found at Target.
Buying: Do you follow along on Instagram? If you don’t then you missed out on our crib bedding preview. How cute is this Dakota sheet from Copper Pearl? I’m loving the simplicity of it yet it’s adding a touch of our adventure element with the arrows.
Aspens Reaction: On Tuesday, the kid’s got a new baby cousin and I became an aunt for the 6th time. Aspen has also dubbed sweet Baby Kellen as “Baby Fry.” If you’ve been following along, this is the name she chose for her baby brother. I guess she has resigned to the fact that baby brother is in fact not going to be named French Fry and has chosen to pass it along to her baby cousin.
