Hey again everyone! Happy August (where does the time go?) Michelle here to update you on my pregnancy! A lot has gone on since I last blogged! My baby belly has definitely popped out. We have moved to San Antonio for James' training. I have an orientation scheduled for my doctor(s) here (notice I did not say appointment). I hope I can get in very shortly after my orientation for an actual appointment.
How Far Along:
What I miss: COLD turkey lunch meat and hotdogs (it's probably because I know I'm not supposed to have it!)
Symptoms: Really feeling pretty normal except my belly sticks out!
Cravings: Well my sweets craving is GONE. I really could care less about desserts. That being said, I did just buy a whole box of cookies..... but I don't HAVE to have them :) I really don't have any cravings anymore and I'm really not that hungry compared to my usual.
Aversions: I recently did some tacos from Taco Cabana which I did enjoy..... Mexicans sounding ok now but I think I had this aversion prior to being pregnant
Gender- Baby Girl Hadley Emilia
Movement: She is moving around more and more. She started little pokes around 20 weeks and now it's more of kicks. She really gets going when I'm watching the Olympics (gymnastics in particular) hint of the future perhaps?!? It's mainly because I feel her when I sit still or after I eat.
Maternity Clothes: Well I'm full on in them, except for dresses. I had to buy actual maternity shorts. It's HOT here in Texas and jeans will NOT cut it. I got pretty frustrated shopping for stuff because most of it is down right UGLY. I found some great dark denim shorts at Target and another pair I got from Kohls.
Best Moments this past week: We finished up the sale of our house and moved to San Antonio! We are settled in nicely to our new apartment and liking it so far. I am not going to post pictures of it because we are bachelor college dorm styling it. I had a better-decorated apartment when I was in college so I had to add the word bachelor. Picture rubbermaid bins as coffee tables and tray tables as end tables/night stands. The apartment itself is very nice though with great amenities.
What I'm looking forward to: Well as a sort of last minute plan, MY MOM, SISTER, AND MAX are coming to play!! They arrive on me and my sister's birthday next week (the big 2-9 WOAH)! We're going to go take Max to Sea World and go to the pool or just HANG!
Milestones: With the arrival of our guests next week, I'm going to be buying some baby items for Hadley! Max is going to use Hadley's car seat while he's here so I'll need to get that! This will be our first thing I buy for her! I'm also going to get her pack and play so Max can sleep in that while he's here. I've had some serious clicker remorse. We registered this past weekend and I thought we were going to go pink! After we got home, I decided I wanted to go neutral. Poor James has been dragged to multiple babies r us several times in the last week plus he's like "whatever you want". I've changed my mind about 5 times on patterns. I think we've made our FINAL choice for the carseat/stroller and play yard. I won't post on it just yet, because a lot can happen in my brain haha.
I'll leave you with some photos.
