Size of Baby: Baby M is the size of a head of butternut squash. She weighs over 2 pounds and is 13 inches long. I feel like I am carrying her wide aka all in my hips. According to wives' tales it is typical to carry girls low.
Gender: Little girl!
Weight Gain: Holding steady at 16 pounds. We will see what the Thanksgiving treats this week brings.
Maternity Clothes: Rocking maternity clothes the majority of the time. I brought out my winter jackets this weekend and they are not even close to buttoning at the waist. The tops in the photos are both non-maternity Lilly. I wore this for church Sunday and after we got home was ready to rip off the pants. The pants were way too tight around the waist.
Nursery: Slowly working toward the goal of having everything completed by Christmas break. I am hoping to snag some good sales this weekend.
Symptoms: I have been developing a light case of heartburn daily. Thankfully, a tall glass of milk has helped. I am still struggling with calf cramps through out the day. I have been stretching and foam rolling to help work my muscles out. My lower back is starting to ache at the end of the long day. I am dreaming of a pregnancy massage in the very near future.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty great. I wake up 1-2 times a night to use the bathroom.
Cravings: Enjoying oatmeal with raisins for breakfast. I am also loving a glass of milk before bed at night. I have noticed that my cravings come and go within an hour. I was really craving some fries one night but by the time Joe got home I had canceled my order.
What I Miss: Hard cider. Apple cider is not the same.
Exercise: I was able to get in 3 Pure Barre classes this week along with several long walks.
Best Moments: Taking Christmas card/ maternity photos this weekend with the amazing Jordan Maunder.
