How big is Allie? The length of a carrot (approx 10.5 inches long)
How is Allie developing this week? Eyebrows are starting to grow!
How I'm changing: I've felt pretty uncomfortable this week. Mainly because I put up our 3 Christmas trees over the weekend and really over did it. I had to take the week off from exercise and get a LOT of resting in. Whew. My lower back was SHOT after that. It took almost half the week to fully recover from that.
What I'm eating: Normal food - oatmeal and english muffin for breakfast. Salads and sandwiches for lunch. Regular suppers. Apples, yogurt w/granola and clementines for snacks. Still craving fried chicken like crazy. The bacon craving has died down quite a bit.
What I'm NOT eating: BBQ and really strong onion flavored things.
How I'm feeling: I tried to go a day without my bands and I made it one day and then the next I needed them. I'm still taking 2 Diclegis at bed time, too. Grr!
How my workouts are: I only got in Body Pump this week because I was resting my body the first half of the week. That class was HARD and it made me just too worn out after. It also hurt my lower back some. I'm sad to say it's probably the last pump class I'll take this pregnancy. :( But I'll continue to get cardio and weights in other ways!
Highlights this week: The way Landon talks about Allie. We talk about her at least every day at some point. He'll randomly bring her up too, at times, which I love. One day we were driving home to eat lunch and I was asking him what he wanted to eat and he said "Allie eat lunch too?" Another day he was on the couch and asked if Allie could sit down with him. I've also heard him say "I love Allie" on occasion. Seriously makes my heart explode. I know he's going to be the BEST big brother and I can't wait to see him with her!
Bump details: It's starting to make it difficult to tie my shoes and paint my toenails. :) Allie moves around all day long and keeps me up at night a bit more than when I was pregnant with Landon.
Facts this week:
- I got all my Christmas decorations up and presents wrapped!! SUCCESS!
- We ordered her crib and I'm starting to narrow down what I want for her crib bedding.
- I've been having a lot of c-section related dreams. They're not always good ones either. Ugh!
- I forgot to mention last week a funny story: Ben had a company dinner and I wore my pregnancy skinny jeans. That's the last time I'll be wearing them because they were too tight and SO uncomfortable after all the food I ate at the dinner! I had to leave the dinner early to get back to our hotel room and into my PJs!! LOL
