100 days till baby girl!

Just 100 days until our little girl arrives! I can't believe it's so close! 

It's not something I've been focused on this week because, well, it's been a tough week in our household. Owen got some kind of stomach bug and was puking all Sunday, then had an extended recovery and just today went back to school. Poor little guy - was so sad to see him so sick! Also, hubby hasn't been doing so great the past week, possibly with the same virus as Owen but manifested a bit different. Not fun for my boys. And just in case you forgot, I'm 6 months pregnant. So it was a LONG week. Luckily today it seems like everyone felt a lot better, and tomorrow is Friday so hopefully everyone can get completely better this weekend!

How far along?: 25 weeks + 5 days
Total weight gain: Last week I only (!) gained a pound, so I was pretty happy about that. 
Pregnancy symptoms: Oh my god, so tired. And some other fun things like wicked indigestion and problems sleeping due to my little bundle of pink joy kicking me every time I wake up during the night. Back pain, although not yet as bad as last time. 
Sleep: Need lots of this. As soon as possible. 
Movement: She is super active. I especially notice it when I get up at night to go to the bathroom or if Owen cries out (or if Owen pukes, but I'm hoping that doesn't happen anymore). She either then wakes up when I do or is already awake doing some kind of flippy things inside my belly. It's cute, but would be okay if she simmered down a bit in those wee hours. 
Food cravings/ weird crap I'm eating: I had a giant frosty today from Wendy's. It was delicious. 
Gender/ names: We haven't made any name progress. Maybe we'll have another round of discussions this weekend. 
What I miss: Having a variety of clothes to choose from each morning. My options shrink every week and I really don't want to buy many new maternity clothes this late in the game. 
Best moment this week: Tough week. 
Weekly Wisdom: Not wisdom as much as decision. This time I am going to make my own baby food to try to keep baby girl loving all the fruits and vegetables. I was doing this in the UK but when we moved back to the US I was too tempted by all the Gerber baby food options. I partially blame this for why Owen had such a hard time eating textured food and therefore want to avoid the super smooth baby food as much as possible. 
Milestones: Last time I had these totally down each week. This time... I'm not even sure what fruit size she is now. 

Countdown: I am due 100 days from today, baby!!!!

  1. James moved around during the day and not at night. My theory (and obviously I have no idea) is that they move around when the mom is stretched out and they have room to do so. I spent a lot of my early evening hours reclining so he had room and bedtime wasn't a big real estate boon for him. Not that this helps... you probably can't recline too much with a toddler running around.

  2. Hi, Chrissy. 100 days, woohoo! So sorry to hear the boys were sick. Seriously, I can't imagine how hard this week has been for you. Thinking of you. love ya , Gwen
