Month 8 Belly Pics

21 Nov

It’s hard to believe we are down to 4-8 weeks to go! I was telling some friends the other day that it’s kinda nice being pregnant this time of year. The busy holiday season makes the week fly by, but it also makes for one tired mama at the end of the day!

Week 29: Size of a Head of Lettuce (Happy Halloween!)


Week 30: Size of Cucumber (Laney was tickling her brothers) ๐Ÿ™‚


Week 31: Size of Coconuts (The coconuts had started molding and my camera was in for maintenance, so the pic was a little off this week.) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Week 32: Size of Squash (we went with buttercup squash) (Happy Thanksgiving!!)


Here is a recap of month 8:

Sleep: Can’t complain. Still able to sleep fairly comfortably with my trusty body pillow.

What Iโ€™ve missed: Having energy and being able to fit in restaurant booths. ๐Ÿ™‚

Food cravings/adversions: Learning what works and doesn’t. Been craving salads this month, but they cause me a lot of heartburn. I also (unfortunately) discovered Cadbury mini-eggs-Christmas edition: Cadbury snowballs. Still don’t want much to do with ice cream and had some unfortunate experiences with beef this month. Tums are my best friend.

Symptoms: Exhaustion hit me pretty hard last week. It’s feeling like more work to lug this belly around and just don’t have my usual stamina to get through the day. I also have this random off-and-on burning/tingling sensation in my left ear. I don’t know if it’s from sleeping on the side a lot or congestion or what, but it is really weird. Other than that, I have been really blessed with a very smooth pregnancy so far!

What weโ€™re looking forward to:
Thanksgiving! I passed my glucose test (woot! woot!), so bring on the mashed potatoes…and stuffing…and corn casserole…and maybe some turkey too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Another full ultrasound this week to check the boys’ growth and progress. If my belly size is any indication, they are “chubbing up” quite nicely!

What weโ€™re listening to:
The Trolls soundtrack on repeat…”Trolls songs, please!” ride! ๐Ÿ˜‰
