I'm a bit sad Christmas is over but ready to start a new year! I think this will be a fabulous year :) I like the sound of the year 2010! Along with taking down Christmas decorations, I'm starting to think of nursery decorations. Well, not really decorations but all things nursery. We are going to paint the walls but we can't do that until we pick fabric! Oh, where to begin!?
This fourth month of pregnancy has been a COLD one! At first, I thought it was going to be a long winter because I immediately began to ache when it got really cold. It's gotten a lot better! I really just ache when I wake from tossing and turning all night.
I feel like I'm sleeping a TAD bit better. It may be because I'm still so tired or maybe because we are keeping the room pretty cold.
Though the baby didn't see the weather this Christmas, we sure told him there was a white Christmas that was pretty :)
It was pretty snow but it has been quite icy! If it weren't for my rain/snow/water boots, I would have probably given baby M a few bruises :( Luckily, my boots have kept my clumsy self from falling! I see people wearing normal shoes, getting them all wet,but I sure don't know how they manage not to fall!
Since we did our Christmas card, I've been thinking about next year's and how the baby will be the "star" of it :) We love our dog...and we will after the baby is born...but he won't have quite as many pics on the Christmas card. Ahhh, maybe I should start browsing announcements? :)
I've been forgetful so very much. This afternoon, I bundled up, put my boots up and walked outside to my car to get something. What was I going to get? I have NO idea! I still don't know.
I don't really care for much meat, still. I've decided I could really live without it. I don't think that is much of an option if PCOS will always be apart of my life. This week, I've been on a drink kick. I love Gloria Jean's Cookie Carmel Chiller. It.Is.AMAZING!! I don't drink it everyday, don't worry. I've had one once a week for the past two weeks :)
Yesterday, I had to go to the bank which is by Braum's. I decided to drive thru and get a cherry limeade. I know a lot of you are Sonic fans. I do like Sonic. But if you like cherry limeades and have a Braum's close by, I HIGHLY recommend you try one out. Hubby and I use to get them all the time but I never think about it lately. Some locations are better than others depending on how they mix and portion it.
I like celery with pimento cheese on it.
This morning I had Starbucks new breakfast sandwich which I think consisted of a whole grain English muffin, turkey bacon, egg white & Swiss cheese. I was impressed! Now, if I could just take the time to make this stuff at home so be more economical. I don't mind eating food but I've not been that big a fan of cooking..and smelling it!
Speaking of smelling, Brent says I'm starting to have Spider Man like senses because smells are so strong to me.
I've been getting more butterflies and quick sharp pains. I've read and been told that this is movement of the baby. Well, I want distinct movement, little guy!! I'm probably jinxing myself! I'm hoping he will start kicking. Well, I can just see him starting to kick and then not stopping! At night, when quiet in bed, hubby and I will feel to see if we can feel the movement! Not so much, yet.
Baby M is the size of an avocado this week!
The past few days I've gotten a mild headache in the late afternoon up until I go to bed. I've not really done any research in my books or on the Internet. I once read headaches are normal because of hormones. Did any of you experience them?
For my big belly comments (shug), where else is baby supposed to go? ;) I'm short and I've also felt I had the shortest torso ever. I'm 5'2". The baby can't stretch it up or down. So, I think he is stretching it outwards! I already had a few stretch marks on my hips from "baby fat" & puberty I guess you would call it. Hopefully, those won't get much worse. I don't really think my belly looks as big in person (to others) as it does in the pics! If hubs sees me change clothes or put on a different shirt, he says "gosh, I wish I had the camera right now..that would be a good shot"... so, it's definitely changing.
I haven't braved myself to lift the shirt..but here is a different angle!
So, I got to thinking....this may be the last week the tree is up. This may also be the only pregnancy I have during the Christmas season.. so I had to take a pic in front of the tree!
Hubby said "Elton, go pose with mommy".. ha. Not as easy as it use to be!
I thought they deserved a pic together :) Can you find Elton? Told you they love the new razorback blanket!
We go back to the doctor next Monday afternoon! Hopefully baby gives us good sonogram pics for my birthday :)
Hope you all are having a good week!
