*End of the 7th Month*
How big is Ellie:
The size of a pineapple
Couldn't live without them! I've also been wearing nursing bras for over a week now and they're fabulous. It's much more comfortable than my regular bras that I've outgrown!!
Weight Gain Alert!
Gained this week: 0 lbs
Total weight gain: 32 lbs
I can see my entire stomach move when Elliana decides to move. Sometimes I think my skin will stretch open because she makes such big movements.
Oreos. I actually made a special trip to the grocery store for Oreos on Wednesday afternoon.
Peanut Butter Sandwiches on Wheat Bread- I have on each day right now
There's not anything in particular that has made me sick. I don't like pasta and red sauce at home, but I crave my Italian Nanny's homemade meatballs and "sooka" (red sauce).
My Current Eating Pattern:
My appetite is still nothing like it used to be. I just eat when I'm hungry and try to snack a lot.
fatigue in the evenings, frequent urination, indigestion, bloated feeling, acid reflux, heartburn, swollen feet and hands, tender breasts, breast changes, JOY, hip pain- are they widening, sore ab muscles and ribs, forgetful, not emotional-but aggravated easily
Brandon traveled Wednesday night this week and I didn't sleep well with him gone. Other than that, I wake up at least once to go to the potty and drink some water. My back is still hurting, but we don't have much longer!
What do I miss:
As awful as this sounds, I miss having a glass of wine. I know that I still have a while because I just can't really see myself drinking and then having to pump and dump my precious breastmilk!
Best moment of the week:
Hearing baby girl's heartbeat
Worst moment of the week:
Feeling like my Bronchitis was back!
What am I looking forward to:
Making it to the 8th month of pregnancy next week!
Becoming a full-time stay at home wife and mom.
"Elliana is close to measuring her birth length. Baby girl is now processing information, tracking light, and perceiving signals from all five senses."

|Going for the nautical look today! Why yes, that's NOT a maternity sweater and I could make it button, but it would probably fly open and poke someone's eye out!|
