“It looks like an olive” is the first thing Bryce said when he laughed at my belly button poking out for the first time; followed by “but it’s so soft”. Ha.
I look down at my tummy sometimes and mistake my belly piercing hole for my belly button & the protrusion to be a tumor of some sort. I’m not used to seeing it sticking out the way it is as of recent, but I guess she’s just running out of room in there and needing to push things out of her way like my belly button….and my lungs!!
Yep…labored breathing is happening! i can still breath pretty normal throughout the day, but there are occasions where I feel as though I need an inhaler or oxygen to keep me alive! It must just be her position or the way that I’m sitting/laying down, but I want to just strip off all my clothes and sprawl in front of blowing air to make sure I don’t die! Ha.
Okay, so that’s a little dramatic, but still…I’ve been so tempted to rip my bra off at work and then remember that I don’t have the supporting tatas to look appropriate without one. Ha.
So much has been going on in life the past few weeks since I’ve posted. Lets see:
-Phlebotomy Classes: I’ve been taking some night classes to be a certified Plebotomist. It will give me more responsibilities at work and hopefully get me a little busier since I hate being slow/stagnant in the office.
-Weddings: Our friends Jason & Melissa finally tied the knot on 04/26/2014 in Lewiston, ID. We drove up for that which led to horrific back pain from the car ride. It was hard to not join in alcoholic jubilation, but I busted some moves on the dance floor nevertheless.
-Nursery Updates: we’ve been slowing making more progress on the nursery (and you can see all the details in the nursery section as well). My mom was over-generous when we went shopping a couple weeks back for baby shower decor (things I could also use in the nursery/bathroom) and we filled up the room with so many cute things! So many!
We also inherited some amazing hand-me-downs from Bryce’s friend, Jim Williams and his wife (thank you!). They gave us an old car seat (Bryce wanted his own for his truck), a swing, and a bouncer! We’re officially running out of room in the nursery which means Bryce will have to make more corner space in his hunting room (lo siento babe).
New Ride?: It’s official that we’re going to be trading in the 2005 Jeep Wrangler X for a more appropriate vehicle for me. It has been a really fun rig to have around, but just not practical to our needs as my means of transportation and our primary vehice. We need more space, a trunk, 4 doors, and better gas mileage (which the Jeep had none of those). The swap hasn’t happened YET, but I’ve already done all my research and I’m ready to sign papers on a 2013 Ford Escape once we get the Jeep all pretty for trade. I’ll be posting pictures once it’s in our driveway & will have to load it up with baby stuff to test out it’s “let-room” 🙂
I’ve uploaded a new belly picture with all the most recent details of my progress, but here is a picture for this entry:
I’m up 19lbs now and weighing the most I’ve ever weighed in my life. It’s horrible stepping on the scale still and I will never get used to it, but if I’m on track according to my OB and baby girl is healthy as can be, then I’ll get over myself 🙂
I’m still working out, but have been slacking the last week due to night classes & being out of town for that wedding. I’ll get back on track, but I see it being more sparse than usual due to other priorities.
