Dress-Old Navy Maternity // Cardigan-Banana Republic
I waffle between really wanting this baby to be here now and "omg, I only have 11 more weeks to get 7.2 million things done!". So far things are going pretty well in the third trimester. There are the typical not so lovely things--still struggling with heartburn, and sleeping is getting a bit more difficult. Some new issues are numbness and lack of strength in my hands; I'm having a hard time gripping anything. Also, my face is getting fat. I already have a round face with chubby cheeks...so in 11 weeks I'm sure I'll look like a few bees attacked my noggin. Also, spider veins--um, perfect timing for summer. And, my wedding ring is getting tight--when should I take it off?
As far as sweet lil Parker Penny goes, shes about 15.25 inches and 2.5 pounds. It would make me feel better if she was around 7 pounds by now....that would explain my 9 pound weight gain in one month. But no...I think those extra pounds went to my face last month, (I blame a 2 men...you may know them, Ben and Jerry). I wasn't at all concerned about my weight until I heard how much I had gained...so this lady is going to try to back off the ice cream. (I said TRY people...please don't get on my case if I instagram more ice cream).
