Yes, lots of it! It’s such a cool feeling, and Cam has been able to feel it quite a few times as well lately which is really fun. I think I’m still at that point in my pregnancy where the baby’s movements are still small enough to be exciting without being so intense that they’re painful…but I know it’s only a matter of time as he continues to grow!
With the hot weather, I’ve been craving lots of stone fruit and watermelon 🙂
But other than that, no really weird cravings to speak of! Occasionally, I’ll get an urge for something random (like Starbursts) but it’s more of a passing thing and not like I have to have it.
Nope, thankfully! It’s been a really hot summer here in Portland, but it hasn’t been bothering me much at all. However, this week it got up to 100 degrees and I could definitely do without that!
Not to sound like a broken record, but with the weather being so hot a glass of white wine/a cold beer/a margarita sounds pretty awesome. Also, as more fall clothes come into the stores, I am missing just being able to shop like normal. I’ll see something cute and realize there is no point in even looking at it because it’s not going to fit…ha!
I’ve been busy the past couple weeks and haven’t made it to yoga, but I have been trying to walk as much as possible!
No real physical symptoms to speak of at this point, I feel really good overall. It’s just still very surreal to have this growing belly! Sometimes when I’m out, I’ll catch a glimpse of myself in a store window or mirror and think “Geez, I really look pregnant!” – it’s a strange feeling!
Best moment from weeks 21-23:
Sharing these photos from earlier this summer was really fun too 🙂
We’ve also started looking at baby stuff and that’s been exciting! We went to a store here in Portland this past weekend to look at some things for our registry, and Cam insisted on trying on all the baby carriers. He was putting this toy weighted baby they had on display in all the carriers and it was so adorable. (He forbid me from taking any photos of this though…ha!) It’s just very surreal and awesome that next summer we’ll have a real baby to carry around 🙂
The weather cooling down a little 🙂
Visiting my sister and Ben in NYC this week
(which by the time this post goes live, we should have already landed!)
Seeing my college friends at the wedding we’re going to in Philadelphia this weekend
Decorating our nursery – we picked out our crib and I’m excited to see the room come together!
Our little babymoon trip we’ve got planned for the end of this month
My shower in Michigan next month!
Also, I am excited to meet our son (of course) but I’m also not in a huge rush for December to get here yet. I’m really enjoying being pregnant…plus there is a lot I’d like to get done before the baby comes! So I’m hoping that the next month or two just slows down a little so I can enjoy it!
(Although I’m sure I will be changing my tune later this fall when I’m larger and more uncomfortable and eager for the baby to just get out already…ha!)
