Baby E’s Stats

Baby: About the size of a pomegranate! Little miss is spending her time sucking her thumb, opening her eyes, and jabbing mama!

Sleep: Not a whole lot. The body pillow is pretty much just in the way & I toss and turn so much, I hate having to worry about moving it with me. I’m up about every 2 hours, just to look at the clock, roll over, and pray I fall back asleep.

Clothing: Hello bump. Everything is continuing to get tighter & my budget for clothes that fit is also getting tighter. So if you see me on Monday, don’t be surprised if I wear that same outfit 3 days later.

Food Cravings/Aversions: Not this week!

Symptoms: Still having back/butt pain, but at this point I’m learning to deal with it.

Movement: Baby girl is a mover & a shaker!! I can sense a little pattern with her movements now. And she only moves when I’m sitting down or standing completely still!

Doctor’s Appointment: Next week!

Gender: GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are overcome with joy! If you missed our announcement, you can see it here.

Best Moment of the Week: Starting our registry! Mike & I went to Buffalo on Valentine’s Day to get it started! It was so much fun to spend the day with him & shop for Miss E.

Thoughts: The baby registry is hard work! I think we walked around for 15 minutes before we actually started. Just kind of wandering & wondering where to even start! There is so much STUFF! I can’t even handle it. We put some of our bigger items on there, but as we were driving home I realized all of the little things that I definitely forgot! Luckily I can update it through the websites! Also, Mike just continues to blow my mind with how much love he already has for our daughter!!! I’ll say it a million times over, I love that man!

Your bump is so cute! For sleeping when I was pregnant, I had two big pillows. One for each side. That way I wouldn't worry about having to move one whenever I rolled over and I always had one supporting my back. It was tough though finding a comfortable position. This is just what worked for me :)
