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.

Mixing Prints

I picked up this beautiful floral tank at winners for *drum roll* 10 bucks!  This was a major moment for me because I NEVER find anything there.  Not because there isn’t anything good to buy, I just usually don’t have the time to dig.  However, If it yields great finds like this, the extra effort just might be worth it.

One of my favourite mixes – florals and stripes! The secret to mixing prints is choosing one that is more neutral than the other.  In this case, my navy striped skirt is the consistent mix while my multicolour floral top is the mix that stands out.  The light pink blazer pulls the entire look together by balancing out the contrasting prints.

Happy Hump Day.  😉  You’re half way there.
