Maternity Clothes: After last week I went to Motherhood Maternity and got a few extra cute tops! Feeling better about having variety and I can wear them after I am pregnant!

Best moment of the week: Hands down last night when Matt came home!!!
Food cravings: Iced coffees, but I always do when it starts to get warm out!
Food Aversions: None really, but I am having a hard time eating healthy.
Symptoms: I am starting to feel more of the weight low and in front. I find myself give my belly a little lift if I am standing for too long.

What I’m looking forward to: Spending this week with Matt and enjoying having him around!

Best moment of the week: Finished my last day of nursing at the hospital (had to quit that job before baby came) and tonight I shot a beautiful engagement session!
Food cravings: I seem to want sweets more than usual. Maybe it was because I was trying not to indulge for my 3 hours glucose test I had today.
Food Aversions: None really.
Symptoms: My abs hurt and get sore easily (mostly when I sit), but otherwise I really feel great!
Movement: She is getting very strong and pushing more that just kicking. Can’t wait for Matt to feel her.

Total weight gain: +16lbs!! Feeling great about this! I have some room to gain for the end.
Maternity Clothes: I wore my scrubs for the first time this week. The bottoms stretch under my belly and are fairly comfortable and my top barely fits over my belly with a tshirt underneath. Just one more week to go for the hospital.
Sleep: Sleeping great for the most part! Love having my windows open and cool air.
Best moment of the week: Shooting my first wedding in Rhinebeck, NY! It was so beautiful there and the wedding day went by great! I felt really good!
Food cravings: None, but now that I am home I am trying to eat smaller, healthier meals/snacks.
Food Aversions: Not really into avocados, but it might be because I was eating them every day before work!
Symptoms: Nothing too bad this week! Feeling great!
Movement: She was head down at my ultrasound this week! I can feel when she switches sides and her whole body pushes against my side. I love that I can find her by feeling.
What I’m looking forward to: A fun baby shower this weekend at my house that I am hosting for a friend! Also counting down the days! Just under two weeks left until Matt gets home!
I had an ultrasound on Tuesday and asked to skype with Matt during it. They said no for legal reasons but the tech said she would give me some extra pictures to show him. Then she said wait let me try something… and she put it on 4d!! So unexpected since they don’t usually do that! It was so fun to see her yawn and open her eyes! We even saw what looked like maybe long hair! Can’t wait to meet her in person!
Outfit: Dress (Old Navy), Cardigan (Jcrew), Belt (Old Navy)
How far along: 29 Weeks
How big is the baby: Butternut Squash, 3.1 pounds
Total weight gain: +17lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yesterday I finally got to wear some of my summer clothes that I bought a while ago! But I am worried about the few options I have for my two weddings this month and I don’t want to go buy something just to shoot in. Hoping I find something appropriate and comfortable for shooting!
Sleep: Starting to get a little uncomfortable but not sure why. I am just generally sore all over. Maybe the recent drive and changing beds again.
Best moment of the week: Outdoor Twins game was awesome!! Such a beautiful day! Enjoying spring weather here in NJ and today I went to Operation Shower and was spoiled by all the giveaways! Like a new stroller, car seat, crib…. The event was just amazing!
Food cravings: None but I am trying to be better about what I am eating.
Food Aversions: None
Symptoms: Heartburn and occasional nausea in the morning. Twice I have even felt flushed and faint. Hoping these next couples weeks of busy work days won’t be bad.
Movement: She is moving a a lot and I can feel her whole body now. I think her back switches from side to side.
What I’m looking forward to: Shooting my first wedding of the season in Rhinebeck, NY this weekend! It is going to be an amazing wedding but prayers are appreciated for me to get through the day. Lots of water!!!! Counting down less than three weeks for Matt to get home!

Sleep: No problems sleeping but I am looking forward to my own bed next week.
Best moment of the week: It has been a great week! I had a church baby shower on Sunday which was so great! Makes me miss home seeing all those faces! I also went out to the movies with my parents and one night enjoyed Polish food and live polka music!
