It’s been awhile since I’ve posted! Hello again! Thought I’d make my way back with a pregnancy update since it has been 6 weeks since my last pregnancy post.
Due Date: April 25, 2017
How far along: 28 weeks
Size of baby: A Tropical coconut, a Rollerblade, an Eggplant (These are so funny and also VERY confusing to me! Haha)
How many weeks to go: 12 weeks
Maternity clothes: At the beginning of my pregnancy, I signed up for a maternity clothes rental service called Clothesline Club through Motherhood Closet. You can sign up for a 3, 6 or 9 month membership and you choose 15 maternity items that you want to rent. You can keep the 15 items for the whole period or swap them out as many times as you want. It just costs an additional $20 every time you swap on top of your original membership price. I started this service early on in my pregnancy and chose the 9 month membership. I just placed my first swap order and am super excited for my next 15 items to come in the mail this week! Since I live in AZ, it’s already time to swap the winter wardrobe for a spring one 😉
Stretch marks: No stretch marks! This is actually shocking to me since I am prone to them and already have them on my hips. I am still using THE BEST Baby Belly Butter by Nature Bare Body Care. Check out my review here. I am on my second tub now and they actually improved their formula a bit since my first tub and I didn’t think it was possible, but I love this new formula even more!
Sleep: Sleep is good! I am having lots of crazy, vivid dreams about the most random things from my past.
Best moment of this week: We took a two day Birthing From Within class this past weekend that was super enlightening and helpful. I think I might do a separate post on this class soon with more info on what it’s all about.
Miss anything: Happy Hour 😉
Movement: So much movement! I have one very active baby boy. I love that he is always checking in to say hello. Right now he likes to push his body to one side of my belly and I can feel his head or butt pushing out. My belly also looks lopsided when he does this. It’s pretty funny.
Food cravings: Mexican food and ice cream
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not right now
Have you started to show yet: No doubt
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Favorite pregnancy or baby product: I placed an order with Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics about a month ago. I read such great reviews on their organic and natural products. I ordered the Postpartum Essentials Bundle and then a few other items for baby like their bestselling Angel Baby Bottom Balm. They also have highly rated pregnancy and postpartum organic teas.
Looking forward to: A lot of fun things to look forward to in February! I have two girlfriends’ baby showers and next weekend I’m going to a fun local event called the Mom Made Market in Phoenix. Hoping to find some cute things for the nursery and baby boy.
Lots of love and good health,
