Spring Florals & A New Do!

This week, I finally got my hair chopped off to donate.  I’ve been growing it for so long for this cause and was finally able to donate 14-15″ of hair!  Let’s just say my hubby hasn’t complained about any ‘hair spiders’ (as he calls them) in the house anymore.  lol.  Hope you like the new do as much as I do. =)

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 25 Weeks

Baby is the size of a:  Cauliflower!

Total weight gain: 11 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Nope.  My belly is starting to feel itchy though from all the stretching but I heard it’s best not to scratch.

Symptoms:  nothing much…just hungry all the time (and I mean ALL THE TIME!).

Sleep:  Sometimes I wake up and find myself sleeping on my back.  I quickly have to readjust back to my side because all that pressure on my back overnight causes it to really hurt the next day.

Best moment this week:  Meeting up with my girlfriend who just had twin girls and finally getting my baby registry done.  I would be so lost in that store without her and would have no idea what I need.  Thanks a bunch Meggie!! =)  xoxo!  I also passed my glucose test which made me feel much better about my recent sugar binge. Sweet!

Worst moment of the week:  Experiencing my very first leg cramp.  My friends warned me about this and that it was inevitable in the third trimester.  It was not fun!  ouch! ><

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  I miss having the energy that I had in second trimester.  I did some spring clean up of my closet this week and I think I took two naps in between.  That’s just ridiculous.  lol.

Movement:  So much!!  I spend about 5-10 minutes each night just watching my belly move.  It’s kind of nice to have a few minutes of the day where I’m only concentrating on her.

Food Cravings: Still tropical fruits (papaya, mangoes, pineapples) and ofcourse, the protein.  I also think my sweet tooth is beginning to come back out of hiding.  I had hagen daz ice cream at least three times this week after dinner.  The flavours?  Peanut butter and chocolate, white chocolate raspberry, and vanilla chocolate almond.  mmm!  I definitely didn’t eat as much as I usually do when it comes to ice cream though.  I had about two scoops as opposed to my usual 3-4.  😉

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Have you started to show yet?  Oh yes.  My aunt says I don’t look pregnant from the back but when I turn sideways, she says the belly is sticking out!

Belly Button in or out?  In, but it’s getting shallower everyday!  To be honest, I find this part of pregnancy the most creepiest so far.  Something about my belly button popping out makes me shiver.  I don’t know why. LOL..

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy!  *insert happy dance*

Looking forward to:  My hubby’s big 3-0 bash this week, although he says he’s more excited about his daughter’s b-day than his own.

A glimpse of Autumn

It was one of those typical Vancouver days where you get all dressed up with sunny weather in mind and then you walk outside only to meet clouds and a light drizzle.  Oh well, this is just getting me ready for whats to come in the Fall.  So I went back home, exchanged my sandals for combat boots and my denim jacket for a leather one.  Twisted my hair into a messy bun and was out the door.  Not too shabby for a quick summer to fall transition eh?

20130706_13383620130706_16143220130706_161445I love a good floral print on any outfit!  It really brings out the femininity in women.  Just remember to keep everything else simple so that it doesn’t compete with the floral print.  This is such a perfect outfit to go for high tea, however, with the heat we are currently ‘enjoying,’ I think I’ll take my tea outside.  One venti passion iced tea for me to go please! 😉
