Here I am...last week of the 2nd trimester. The books aren't lying to you either when they say the 2nd trimester is the most comfortable, because the further along I get the less comfortable I am!
I am slowly being able to shift my focus from HOUSE to BABY! I even managed to get Bryan to go help pick out a rocker for the nursery this past weekend which his parents so kindly purchased for us! I love it!! Thank you Pottery Barn Kids (and Cobles)!
Bryan was also given this "fun" book by a friend of ours which he has thoroughly enjoyed reading
It contains all sorts of fun and interesting information. It seems overnight Bryan has become a baby expert! In fact he was coaching me last night on proper burping methods and some tricks of how to get them to "latch on" for feeding...neat! Personally, this was one of my favorite parts of the book:
In all honesty though, I couldn't be happier that he is excited and enjoying reading up on all things baby!
OK, time for the updates!
Stats of the Week
Size of baby: 14.5" and about 2lbs - like a head of cauliflower!! Based on my weigh in at the Dr. yesterday I believe this baby is every ounce of 2 lbs.
What I miss: Sushi, I'm back to sushi. I can't wait till I can have a very large plate of sushi and a nice large glass of vino to go along with it!
Best Moment this week: Picking out the rocker and scheduling the deliver of the crib. I feel like I'm on my way to prepare for Baby Coble's arrival!
What baby likes AKA cravings:I'm trying to control my cravings a bit more and substitute with healthy foods like nuts and fruits, and cut back on the cookies and cakes! Based on my last weigh in I feel like the weight can add up quickly towards the end if you let it! Don't get me wrong, I still like to top off my dinner with a yummy milano cookie or some other form of sweet goodness!
Movement: Regular, and a little stronger
Sleep: Good for the most part, and I'm wanting more of it again! I'm not real enthusiastic when I hear the alarm in the morning, but then again when have I ever been.
Looking Forward to: Getting my test results back from all the blood work at the Dr. yesterday
Picture: I tried to take one this morning before I left the house but it came out fuzzy, so I had Bryan take another at the office. I'll just add both of them though for shitz and giggles
