HOW BIG IS BABY?

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!

Maternity Clothes: I have been adding to my collection week by week. I've bought a few new things, but have had some great luck lately from consignment shops as well. A few of my normal items I have been able to continue to wear, so that has been great. I'm also trying to keep the shirts that I can wear as maternity separate from everything else, so I know what I can and cannot wear.

Sleep:I have been sleeping really well lately, which I hope keeps up.

Best Moment of the Week: Wayne feeling her kick again this week and actually starting to see my belly move when she moves. Finishing one of our baby registries. Yay!

Movement: I feel her move all the time now. The past few evenings she has been so active that I can start to see my belly really move with her. It's so fascinating to just stare at it.

Food Craving: I've really like Heath blizzards the last few weeks. For my birthday, a co-worker made the "Better than Sex Cake" cause it has Heath on top. They know me so well and it was delicious!

Food Aversions: None as of lately.

Morning Sickness: None.

Gender: It's a girl! Hailey Jo is her name.

Symptoms: Constipation is the major one that continues to stick with me. Good thing it is manageable. Other than that, lower back pain and some round ligament pain has started. Achy feet after only being on them for a short period.

What I miss: Bending over.Being able to roll over in bed or get out of bed without it being a production. Walking fast. I'm normally a fast walker and I have really had to slow down otherwise I get a side ache. Getting in and out of the car with no hassle. Not feeling like I have to pee all the time.

What I'm looking forward to: Starting and hopefully finishing our other baby registry sooner rather than later. Organizing, packing and getting rid of stuff to move mid-May. Garage sale season.
