Wow, am I really six and a half months preggers now?  It’s crazy to think time has gone by so fast and I’m already in my final trimester. =)  The students in my class are so sweet.  They’ve been writing letters to the baby, drawing pictures of my growing belly and giving her tons of hugs throughout the day.  I seriously feel I have the best job in the whole world!  Hope you’re having a splendid weekend so far!  Thanks for dropping by to check up on me.  Cheers!

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 26 Weeks

Baby is the size of a:  head of lettuce!

Total weight gain: 11 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Nope.  Honestly, I really don’t care if I do get them though…it’s not like I’m a supermodel and need to be in a bikini a few weeks after giving birth.

Symptoms:  I’m starting to feel more tired at the end of the day.  Naps are an absolute necessity at the moment.

Sleep:  Pretty good this week.  The only thing is I can’t seem to sleep in on the weekends anymore.

Best moment this week:  My childhood friend and I have an annual Mother’s Day tradition where we basically double date and take our moms out for high tea.  This year was just like every other year except I also felt like it was my first soon to be mother’s day as well.  I received many sweet texts from dear friends that wished me a happy soon-to-be mother’s day and even my hubby took me out for brunch and got me a little gift.

Worst moment of the week:  I woke up one night this week and literally felt like I wanted to barf.  Good thing my hubby was still awake to help me out.  He brought me tums, water, and a bag in case I actually needed to use it.  It was so weird because I haven’t had any morning sickness at all since the beginning of my pregnancy.  We later figured out that it was probably because of the very rushed dinner we had that night, combined with watching spiderman 2 in ultra AVX that brought up some nausea and indigestion in me later on.  I have so much sympathy for the moms out there that have morning sickness throughout their pregnancy.  Holy moly!  I don’t know how I’d be able to do it. Kudos to the moms that went through months of that!

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  Travelling!  My hubby and I go to Europe every summer but this year, it’s all about our baby girl.

Movement:  Oh yeah!  This girl loves to practice her karate kicks in me everyday!

Food Cravings: The burgers and fries cravings came back full force this week.  I had burgers and fries about 3 -4 times this week!  What is going on?  Oh, and my appetite has seemed to increase tenfold…not only do I devour my own meal but I end up eating some of my husband’s meal afterwards too.  Needless to say, I’m one hungry preggers at the moment.  lol.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope, except for that one night after the Spiderman 2 movie.  ugh…

Have you started to show yet?  For sure!  We went to Earls for dinner this week (and yes, I had burgers and fries) and the three  hostesses at the door were asking me how far along I am and how my pregnancy has been so far.

Belly Button in or out?  In, but getting shallower each day.  I’m still totally creeped out by my belly button.  ugh!

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy! =)

Looking forward to:  Our 3D ultrasound coming up next week!

‘Tote’ally Crazy

Those who know me know that I am a sucker for cute tote bags.  They’re just so easy to carry and provide so much space.  My personal favourite is the longchamp le pliage shopping tote.  They are lightweight, water resistant (a Vancouver must!), easy for travel (they fold up nicely) and they even have a zipper to lock everything in.  It doesn’t get better than that. Love love love!!!
