Just a spattering of questions I get on a regular basis π If you have any other ones, feel free to leave in the comments below!
How far along are you? 31 weeks today π And thanks for realizing I’m pregnant and not just thinking I’ve hit the Oreos a bit too hard lately.
Boy or girl? it’s a boy! We were super blessed to find out in the sweetest way!
Do you have any names? Finally, yes. Yes, we do. A few contenders. But since the gender has been revealed, we’re keeping the name a surprise for when he makes his entrance into this world.
Will you tell me if I guess it? No.
How are you feeling? like a whale π Great in comparison to how sick I was in the beginning of the pregnancy, but starting to feel uncomfortable. He’s up really high, so my lungs are a little constricted right now.
Can you feel him? oh Lord, yes. He’s going to be a soccer player, just like his daddy. Constantly rolling, kicking, squirming. I can’t wait for him to come out and play!
You’re still so small! I’m glad you think so because I feel huge. I’ve put on a hefty 22 pounds in the last seven months. And there’s still more to go. They’ll be rolling me into that delivery room.
Are those pants maternity? No my friends, those are my regular pants. Yes, even my skinny jeans from last year are still in the rotation. What you don’t see, is that there is not one button or zipper that is even remotely closed. My co-worker suggested the Be Maternity BeBand from Target (only $16.99!) and I’ve never looked back. I love that I can still comfortably wear most of my regular clothes and that I’ve only had to buy one pair of maternity pants and a few shirts.
Are you sleeping okay? Other than the mandatory bathroom break every two hours, yes! I’m actually still sleeping on my back – it’s still the most comfortably position even though that goes against every pregnancy book ever written.
Sorry, does the smell of my Chipotle bother you? Not anymore π Although it was rough there for a while. Any type of meat smell sent me into extreme nausea. My trick was to light a candle and have it right in front of me during dinner so I couldn’t smell what Adam was eating.
Are pickles and ice cream on the menu? No, oranges sure are. In any form. Especially orange juice. Which makes me crack up because that’s what my mama craved when she was pregnant with me!
What do you miss about your non-pregnant days? Volleyball. I miss it terribly. I’ve been doing a lot of yoga and pilates (both of which have become humorous to watch since I can no longer touch my toes) but it’s not the same as real exercise.
Are you ready? Um. If I say no does that slow down this process? Honestly, I think the answer will be yes in a couple weeks. Once Adam is able to walk again (next week!) and we can finish up this little guy’s room, I’ll feel more prepared for his arrival. But, in terms of the excitement level, we are BEYOND ready for him to get here!PAGECHECK
