This week might’ve been the best week of pregnancy so far. I knew what I was feeling was the baby moving when it started happening more frequently and every day. It is the best feeling in the world, and I’m looking forward to movement getting stronger and more frequent.
Cravings: Sour gummy worms or any artificially flavored candy, cheese, mushrooms
Symptoms: Movement! Heartburn, a little anxiety, increased energy, lower back pain/neck pain
It’s about time for some maternity shirts. I have been in maternity pants/jeans since the week I found out I was pregnant (SO bloated those first weeks), but now all my shirts are getting snug, too. I have noticed in Australia, there aren’t any maternity shops, and the maternity section in Target or K mart are so tiny they’re hard to find (literally one rack in the whole store). Not only that, but a lot of what I’ve seen has been completely unimpressive: Drab, frumpy, colorless, and overpriced. So, I’m taking matters into my own hands and ordering a few shirts on some websites in America to be shipped over to me. I can’t wait.
I have had sour gummy worms or some form of candy each day in the last few days. I started to feel guilty about it, but I decided I’m eating very healthy otherwise, so it’s okay for me to eat a little treat once a day.
And now for an entertaining dream I had this week. I dreamt we had a baby boy. He was smiling and laughing at whatever me or my husband did to entertain him. At one stage, suddenly, my older brother was here, and I let him hold our son. Almost immediately, he said, “Oh, I think he has to poop,” and placed him in the grass (?!). I looked down at my baby who had turned into my guinea pig, Guster. End dream.
Other than all that, I’m looking forward to watching the bachelorette finale as soon as it comes online! Hope you all have a great week!
