I skipped a week, woops. Last week was the end of my 11-days straight work week, so I was kind of pooped. It was finished off with a three-day weekend, though, which is always fantastic.
These were both taken the same day, but I had to release the belly from the skirt since it feels better when it’s free and wild and unconstricted. The shorts are from Target and have been awesome. I can roll the belly covering part down when I don’t want anything on it.
This week I hit 30 weeks, which is surprising to me, being less than 10 weeks away from my due date. I still have a lot of stuff to do, but some of it I’m waiting on Greg to get back for (like pick a name…no big deal right, no need to freak out! I may freak out a tiny bit, but I do know what I like and have told him, just need to decide for sure when he gets here).
Last week at my doctor’s office, my OB asked me if people said anything about my bump being small and I told her a lot of people have mentioned it. I do not mind at all, and in my uniform people might not be able to tell. She said I have a really long torso, so I think baby has some room to move around in there.
I roll out of bed like a turtle when I get up to go pee at night, but besides that, the belly is a slightly compact size and hasn’t been causing me too much back pain or anything.
Baby is growing lots in this trimester:
Workouts are sporadic and I do them whenever I am feeling good and/or have the time. Today, I went for a walk and it went really well – no ab muscle pain this time, which has been off and on. Although it is HOT here and I didn’t stay out too long.
Every time I go for a walk, I admit I think of one of my favorite Buffy moments. I know there are other BtVS fans. I love Spike and Buffy.
I had a great accidental library haul the other day. I went in to drop off a book and try to find one more while I was waiting for one I stumbled upon all these. I’m reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone right now, and will hold my thoughts until the end but I will say I am really into it.
I dyed my hair this weekend, because my color seemed really golden to me and I wasn’t feeling the light color, anymore. I went for a darker, chocolate shade with Naturtint in light chestnut brown and really like it so far.
I had a fabulously relaxing and much-needed weekend, and I hope you’re off to a good week.
