Apparently me ‘not feeling very big last week’ was a bunch of bullshit, because this week, she’s all out there and then some! Makin’ mama knows she’s there, fo shizzle!
Lets see, this week, the cravings have been the standard chocolate and ice cream….theme of my life. I’ve also had this amazing love for brats. We had some Wednesday night, and it was like the best meal I’ve ever had in my life. I mean, I’ve always like brats, but I don’t know, for some reason, the other night they were better than ever.
The back is better. Walking helps soooo much. And I feel so much better when I do walk, in general I mean. I can totally tell if I take 3 or so days off walking, because my back and legs are all tight and won’t corporate. I didn’t do very well this week, on getting in my miles, but next week I’m going to try harder.
OHHHH, most important thing! Before I forget! I want to thank y’all for commenting on how wonderful I look!!! I’m telling you, I totally felt poopy and lumpy and dumpy and an all around disaster lately, and y’all cheered me right up saying I’m all cute and crap. Just warms a girl’s heart!!! You guys seriously made my month!
You know, one thing I’ve noticed about being pregnant………all the attention! Crap on a cracker y’all! It’s like the moment you find out you’re with child, and tell people, they just can’t get enough of you. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not complaining! I LOOOOOOVE IT!
Hello, My name is LauraBelle, and I am an Attention Whore.
Is that bad?
That I’m living all this up?
I’m bad. I know.
This isn’t about you LB, it’s about the baby. Focus.
Sorry, little pep talk there.
But really, it’s so cool when people gush over your belly and ask you a hundred questions. It never gets old.
And the other day, I was just walking through the store and these strangers were just looking at me and smiling. I could tell they saw the belly and knew, and it immediately showed on their face.
It’s so cool. I just wish people were like that all the time.
It’s amazing how many people walk around with a scowl on their face, including me! The world’s such a better place when we smile.
Ok, way off topic there.
This week Little Ida has actually doubled in weight over the last 4 weeks weighing in over 2 lbs! Her hearing is progressing as the nerves in her ears are maturing. The book says she can start to recognize our voices! That’s so neat!
Her taste buds are also developed now. So when I had that spicy brat the other night, it’s no wonder she was doing summersaults in there later!
And her hiccups are happening more and more. At first I thought they were just movement, but then I noticed the repetition to them and figured out she was hiccupping! It’s a weird feeling to me, and doesn’t really bother her at all, according to the book anyway. Kinda just feels like your stomach has the hiccups, but it doesn't hurt. It's like little belly spasms almost. I don't know how to explain it. lol.
Next week will be the start of the 3rd Trimester!!!!
Can y’all believe it?!?!
I sure as shit can’t.
This is flying by!!!
