Another week come and gone. Baby and I had our monthly check-up this week, and everything seems to be going just fine. Baby’s heartbeat was nice and strong, which didn’t surprise me considering how active he often is. According to my books, he should weigh over 2 lbs right now, and will start gaining 1/2 a pound a week. Considering how big I already feel, it’ll be interesting to see just how much bigger this belly gets. :p
And this would be after Josh told me my belly looked like a giant boob because of how my belly button sticks out…
Despite the cold, we decided to get some errands done yesterday, which included going to Snuffy’s Malt Shop for lunch (Mmmm… malts), and then off to Babies R Us to order a chair for the nursery. We got a pretty good deal on a glider with ottoman and while it’s not the most comfortable model they had, we already decided we weren’t spending $300-$500 on a rocking chair. Sure, we may change our minds later if we end up spending a lot of time in it, but for now… I think it’ll work out just fine, and this particular chair doesn’t take up as much room, which is also nice considering the nursery is a little small. Otherwise, we bought some baby clothes (yay clearance!) and then went home and had a nice dinner for two. With my growing girth, it’s too hard to eat anywhere but at the dinner table or counter, and it’s actually been nice not eating in front of the TV or computer and sitting down with my husband – we may just make it a regular thing. Ha ha.
I also have the best husband, who picked up Lady and the Tramp for me, which I haven’t seen in years, and we watched that last night. I’m definitely having a much harder time staying up very late, though. It hits 9:00 and I seem to just wear out – I’m afraid the recliners might be too comfy for movie watching anymore. :p
I was, however, thankfully able to sleep in a bit today and we did our Sunday morning breakfast – biscuits and gravy today with thick deli-cut bacon. It’s getting kind of sad that I think about food so often to the point where my eyes glaze over thinking about all the yummy things I want to make and devour. Ah well, I guess I’m really just lucky I haven’t gained more weight than I already have!
On that note, time to decide what to do with the rest of the day… perhaps a combination of being productive and relaxing as I still have a lot of organizing and purging I need/want to do. I also want to spend some time with my husband and his week ended on a bit of a sad note with the passing of his uncle, which was very sudden and unexpected. I didn’t have the opportunity to know him very well, but he was kind and had a great love of music – he was the DJ at our wedding actually, and we couldn’t have asked for a better one.
