Due Date: July 17th
How far along: 25 weeks, 6 days
Weight gain: 23 lbs. (If you have a calculator near by, you would know that's only 3 pounds up since the last visit. Yesssssss.)
Maternity Clothes: Thank God for maternity leggings. I have never had a summer pregnancy, and this heat wave threw me for a loop. I don't have maternity shorts, tanks, or capris. But....I do have these leggings. And they're pretty much the best thing ever invented.
Feeling baby: The best part of my day - over & over & over & over & over & over again.
Food cravings: "Yes. Can I please have a LARGE blue rasberry Arctic Rush please?" "Please pull around for your total." "Thank you Dairy Queen lady."
Gender: Getting pretty excited about this whole boy thing.
Baby's heartrate: Low 150's today. What a wonderful sound.
What I miss: Wine & beer. We've had this beautiful weather and I've been without alcohol. But, at least I have my Arctic Rush to get me through.
What I love: People commenting on my glow. :) Makes me feel better, especially because I feel all-kinds-of-frumpy in my maternity work clothes.
Looking forward to: Closing on our house on Monday! YAYAYAYAY! What a long time coming. It doesn't mean we get to move in right away, but at least we will own a house. We built a huge house when we got married, and I eventually wanted to sell it. It was too big and lacked any character. Plus we were about 30 minutes away from parents and work, which is a big deal when you go to those 2 places almost everyday. We sold it in December, and have been looking ever since. Finally, we found a foreclosed home (with about half the monthly mortgage payment we did have) in a great neighborhood. I can't wait to start decorating Emma's big girl room, and baby boy's nursery. :)
Milestone: Done with 4-week appointments. We have 3 weeks until our next, and then we start every 2 weeks.
Holy cow, I'm going to have a baby soon.
