How far along? 27 weeks. I'm definitely in my 3rd trimester now (I think!)
Maternity clothes? Who needs maternity clothes when you can just wear yoga pants all the time?
Sleep: Pretty solid. I've been going to bed early and (mostly) sleeping through the night. You can't ask for more than that!
Best moment this week: Going to our first baby class. Surprisingly, I enjoyed the car seat safety one a lot more than the hospital tour. Granted, my eyes were probably the size of dinner plates for the first hour...Jacob leaned over at one point and was like, "I can't tell if you're paying attention right now..." I guess my 'freak-out' face is really similar to my 'I'm-so-over-this' face...both consist of big, glassy eyes and staring blankly. It was so much information and there are so many things that can go wrong! In the end though, it was really helpful and we got to practice buckling in little baby dolls...it sounds stupid but it actually made me really excited to start buckling in our own baby!
Miss Anything? Well, this has nothing to do with pregnancy, but outdoor fall activities! To all of you Illinoisans on Facebook who are posting pictures of apple picking...you are single-handedly breaking me. In the meantime, I guess I'll just have to content myself with watching this video over and over to make myself feel better.
Movement: Constant. Putting my hand on my stomach is awesome because I can feel her shifting around ALL. THE. TIME. I love it when I can feel a leg or an elbow or toes through there...not that I can always tell exactly what it is, but I can tell that it's something!
Food cravings: At this moment? Everything. As I type this, I'm waiting to go take my glucose test and you have to fast beforehand...unfortunately they couldn't get me in until 11 a.m. Boooooo! So hungry!!! Also, if you follow me on Pinterest then you will see that I'm obviously wanting pumpkin and apple EVERYTHING...sorry for blowing up your feed with fall recipes, I might have a self-control problem. But hey, better a thousand different versions of apple pies than a thousand different pictures of girls skinner and more fit than you or I could ever pray to be, am I right?
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nada
Have you started to show yet: Yep! Although, every time I sub in a new classroom, I'm guaranteed to have kids whispering back and forth, "you ask her!" "No, YOU ask her!" I used to just let them duke it out because I didn't want to ASSUME they were talking about me, but now I just turn around and say, "Yes, I am pregnant." They're relieved, I can move on, it saves everyone some time, and I am all about efficiency so this works for me.
Labor Signs: Maybe? I might've had a Braxton Hicks contraction on Sunday. If that's what it was, then whoever said they aren't painful are dirty liars! They hurt like a MOTHER. If not, then it was probably just because I really needed to go to the bathroom. Or because I tried to wear regular jeans with the rubber band trick and they were just a liiiiiittle too tight. Still hurt like a mother, though.
Belly Button in or out? I would say 3/4 out, 1/4 barely hanging in there. Jacob HATES it and I think it's hilarious
Wedding rings on or off? Definitely still off. Will I ever be normal again??
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, although I do cry more easily over things.
Looking forward to: Going to the zoo with Christina and the boys!!!! I love the zoo. I love those kids (and I haven't seen Bennett since he was in the hospital...he has SIGNIFICANTLY grown since then!) and I love BFF time!!! Win-win-win situation!
