He called into work for me (remember, I work for my parents, so that’s less awkward than it sounds) and took tomorrow off for me. Yes!!! A day off! For just me!! To relax!!!
And even better, he scheduled an appointment for me to go see the acupuncturist I saw when I was pregnant with Charlotte AND another appointment for a massage and foot scrub. I’m. In. Heaven. Already.
Being pregnant with a toddler is super tiring. I’m beyond excited (and grateful) for tomorrow.
How far along: 9 weeks
Total weight gain: I might be up a pound? I’m not totally convinced. I have such a finicky scale.
Maternity clothes: My sweet little girlfriend just brought me her bin of maternity clothes… So nice, right?? My new obsession? H&M mama maternity leggings. They’re perfection. Pair them with a cute gap maternity sweater and I’m the happiest (and most comfortable) gal around.
Stretch marks: No, but I did start getting worried yesterday. So much so, that I vowed to pick up my post-bath pregnancy moisturizing routine. I feel like since becoming a mama, I’ve been totally slacking on the moisturizing. That ends today 🙂
Sleep: I’m always tired. I just can’t get enough sleep. Why isn’t nap time a thing? 6 month maternity leaves and 1-hour afternoon naptimes for pregnant mamas. If I ruled the world…
Best moment of this week: Charlotte is officially a walker. She’s so proud, too. She is really shaping up to be such a fun little lady.
Miss anything: My energy!
Movement: sometimes I think I feel something, but I realize it’s super high, meaning it’s probably my food being digested.
Food cravings: I have mega cravings all the time. Thankfully I don’t always act on them. Right now the big one is cake. I’m going to a wedding on Saturday and let me tell you, if there isn’t cake, I’m leaving immediately. Mmmmm! Cake 🙂
Anything making you queasy or sick? I get uneasy when I’m hungry and randomly throughout the day.
“Sure honey, you can empty everything out from the pantry and then throw it all over the floor… Just do it quietly so I can make dinner in peace.”
Gender: I’m back to being totally unsure.
Labor signs: Thank goodness, no!
Belly button in or out: Very deeply in.
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: How could I be crabby?? Haha I can be crabby, but this week, I’m happy.
Looking forward to: My pampered day of fun tomorrow and my appointment on Thursday!’
