26 weeks 5 days

26 weeks 5 days



I woke up this morning looking super pregnant but I have no idea where my derriere went? good grief, those have got to be the most unflattering sweat pants ever, but hey I'm keepin it real. Miss Betsey Jane is growing like crazy, kicking like crazy and I am so excited for her to be here.  I have so much stuff I want to get done, but have been postponing until all of the renovations are done on the house because redo-ing bedrooms and flooring takes some major extra dough. But I still have time, 13 weeks till my due date, 11 weeks until she is here. Pretty much the only perk to a cesarean is the early delievery.  I've been battling some major sciatica. It completely sucks. Nothing like walking down an aisle at Target with your left leg going numb and a sharp pain running down your left butt cheek, tmi? who cares. I went to my appointment this week, and I am measuring at 29 weeks which is normal, and I haven't gained any weight in 2 months. Well, I took that to heart and ate a delicious cheeseburger after my appointment. Then last night, I made fried chicken for the first time ever in my life and oh my gosh, soooooooooooooo great. I wish I would have never tried it, I feel like I'm going to end up looking like Paula Dean! I haven't been having too many crazy cravings, in fact my husband requested the heart attack chicken, but I've been wanting oatmeal with brown sugar and milk in the morning, mixed green salad with bleu cheese and candied pecans with raspberry vinaigrette for lunch and then I usually eat a pretty hardy dinner. I guess the lower fat first 2 meals have been keeping the weight down and I feel full. I have been steering clear of soda, well accept for the occasional cherry diet coke from white top (lemoore people know what I'm talking about) and I started getting sick of water so I tried crystal light, and I am addicted. so freakin good! I can't really fit into my pre pregnancy jeans, except for 2 pairs that I consider my fat jeans because I had went down a size before I got pregnant. I bought some maternity jeans and they are baggy after like 15 minutes of wearing them. So I'm not feeling cute in the wardrobe department right now. My feet are wider, yay....so no cute shoes, blah. But no big complaints, I am a very blessed girl awaiting a very loved little gal.
My daughter London said today that we need to get Betsey a tutu so she can be a ballerina. I love my boys so so much, but my gosh is such fun having a girl, soon to be GIRLS. We drank hot cocoa, cuddled on the couch, she was in barbie heels, and we read fancy nancy books....couldn't get any sweeter right?
Then Rowan woke up, came and cuddled and we watched Toy Story, I swear there is no entertainment value in that movie for me anymore. over.it.like.5.months.ago.
