With 12 weeks remaining before we meet our new family member, lot’s has been happening as we prepare for his arrival. I am going to try my best to relax as much as I can now that I’m in the third trimester, however my mind is working overtime thinking about my (never-ending) to-do list.
What’s happening with #2?
#2 is currently the size of a cauliflower head, weighs just over 1kg and about 32 cm in length. He is very active and I swear I felt him kicking my rib cage the other day.
What’s happening with my body?
I’ve gained just over 7 kg’s thus far but I’m finding it hard to eat a full meal as the indigestion and heartburn are just not worth it so I’m trying to stick to eating smaller meals with little snacks in between – so much for eating whatever you like when you pregnant! The heat has been a killer this week and I’m finding it difficult to sleep at night, but so is the hubby who complains about it more than I do 🙂
Date and nut muffins from Kuaui. Yum! This week I am going to try making my own…. will let you know how that goes!
What I’m dreaming about?
I can only recall parts of 1 dream that I had recently. Old friends and places I haven’t been to in ages featured in the dream, but that’s all I can remember really.
I’ve bought a few cute items and also managed to go through some of Alyssa’s newborn clothing to see what I can re-use for #2, so I now have a clear picture of what’s still needed. #2 even got some Christmas gifts from family members 🙂
We’ve started planning the nursery, just in terms of a theme and wall colour and now have a bit of an idea of what we want. I will share some of this with you in posts to come.
I would also like to start stocking up on nappies but I’ve heard things could be a bit tricky when it comes to boys. I’ve used Pampers Premium care for Alyssa since she was born and to date she has never had a rash or anything of the sort. I will most probably buy it for #2 as well, however I’ve been told that Huggies for boys may be better.I would love to hear from any moms with experience on this matter.
Have a great week!
