I swear these are different pictures...I just happened to be wearing the exact same thing. I think that bump has grown a little in the past four weeks, but from looking at the pictures, not as much as I felt like it had. I've been feeling H-U-G-E!!!!! I know that I still have a long ways to go, but I wish that I had faithfully taken photos every week when I was pregnant with Evie, I think I'm much bigger this time around.
So, onto the survey!
Weight gain/loss: +3 lbs. from 4 weeks ago, putting my total weight gain at 9 lbs. I am excited that I'm still hovering around my pre-pregnancy weight with Evie. :)
Fruit of the week: This week baby is the size of a mango.
Feeling: Tired. I think that my trip is still catching up with me. I'm also a little overwhelmed with the fact that I leave for Panama with a group of my students on Saturday. I didn't plan on being pregnant for all of this traveling!!!!
Sleep: Good, but I would like more of it. I went to bed at 8:30 last night, it wasn't even dark out.
Food cravings: Milk. For being a Wisconsin girl, I'm not much of a milk drinker, but yesterday I think I had 4 glasses.
Movement: Definitely feeling a lot of it these days. I had an anterior placenta with Evie, and I feel like it must be posterior this time with all of the movement I'm feeling. This is by far my favorite part of pregnancy, so I'm enjoying it.
Maternity Clothing: I love everything about them, expect how the pants fall down all the time. I've been wearing more dresses with the heat anyway, so not a huge problem.
Gender? We are definitely finding out. A lot of people have been saying they think I'm having a boy, but I think that's just because I already have a girl. In Spain they call a boy/girl combination "la parejita," which means "the perfect little pair." I think that everyone over there was just biased towards that.
What I miss? Having cocktails with M on summer nights. All weekend, I just wanted to put Evie to bed and sit on the patio with a cold drink, talking to M.
Best moment this week: Getting home. I had the most amazing trip, but I know how much Evie missed M. I missed him too. It was nice to be a family all together again.
What I'm looking forward to: Taking my students to Panama. As much as this is a strain on my family, it's the opportunity of a lifetime for my students. A trip like this one when I was in high school truly changed my life. I had never really been out of my little town before, and it opened my eyes to how big and interesting the world is. I hope that this trip will do even half of that for my students.
Next Appointment: The big anatomy scan this Friday, July 6th. Yup, that means we're finding out the gender on Friday!!!
