Best Moment this Week
This past weekend we went to Dallas & stayed with my uncle & aunt, visited our friends Jason & Paige, & got to see Chase & meet his fiancee Lisa. It was a fun weekend of hanging out, swimming, & eating yummy cupcakes. Oh, & I passed my gestational diabetes test, yay!
BOY! Elliot James.
Elliot is definitely getting to the size where his movements are starting to hurt sometimes. He sometimes, though fortunately not too often, kicks hard at my bladder. He pushes up against my belly button which hurts, & I've experienced a little soreness up near my lower ribs. He certainly is becoming a big boy! Last night Josh was talking to him & woke him up, then Josh put his ear on my stomach to hear what was going on in there (apparently he can hear gurgles of movement) & Elliot kicked him in the head several times. Josh loved it. I'm thinking that's the only time he'll love his son kicking him in the head. :-)
This week's fruits: Texas peaches, apples, strawberries, blueberries, pears. A slight craving for queso... we had some awesome queso at the taco place we ate with Jason & Paige at & I practically licked the bowl clean. Mmmm.
I have been sleeping pretty hard lately, but definitely not enough hours. I'm so tired this week... I wonder if that is the new normal? Oh but I start to get uncomfortable in my hips toward the early morning hours, so that wakes me up.
What I am looking forward to
Not traveling anymore! We decided to make lots of trips this summer to visit people before life gets a little busier & less predictable, & it has been good & fun but we are worn out & ready to be here & have more relaxing weekends.
Nausea, exhaustion (more so), loose hips, back pain, icky stomach (besides nausea, I get full quickly then feel yucky & certain foods are not sitting well).
