It is official - this kid is obsessed. With the light switches.
Now that he is tall enough his mission in life seems to be to turn on every single light switch that he can reach. It's somewhat comical - and somewhat annoying. The comical part is his excitement when he gets one turned on. He'll clap and say "Yay!". The annoying part is his whining if he can't get it turned back off. If he's wearing shoes he can reach and get them turned off. If he's just in socks he can't quite get up there. Then begins the whining and crying. Yay.
I guess there are worse things that he could be doing so I shouldn't complain. And if playing with the light switches keeps him occupied long enough for me to get dinner on the table, I'll take it.
It's funny what entertains these toddlers, huh?
On to this week.
How far along? 22w0d and the size of a papaya. According to my little app he's ~10.5 to 11.8 inches and 12.7 to 20.8 ounces. I'm guessing he's right around a pound.. He should be sleeping in cycles by now - around 12 to 14 hours a day.
Weight loss/gain: +18 lbs. I'm still depressed about the speed with which the weight seems to be piling on. Especially since it doesn't seem to be showing in my belly all that much. I need to get my eating in check and get my ass on the treadmill.
Maternity clothes: Some. I'm still mostly wearing regular shirts, but have been sporting maternity jeans and some work pants just for comfort.
Symptoms: The ever present cement bowel, I had some cramping/tightening in my belly this week and this morning had a fun wake up call with a giant charlie horse 5 mins before my alarm was going to go off.
Sex (of baby): It's a BOY!!!
Name: Still haven't talked about it. Is that weird?
Sleep: Sleeping sucked earlier this week and was exacerbated by Andrew being up for an hour shrieking on Tuesday night (still not sure what that's about). Luckily sleep has been much better the past couple nights. I was exhausted.
Best moment this week? Honestly nothing happened this week.
Movement: Getting to feel it more now, and J actually felt kicks last Saturday morning (so at 21w1d).
Food cravings: Veggies and fruit.
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? A run that doesn't suck.
What I'm looking forward to? Everything finally being out in the open at work. Yes, that's right, my boss still doesn't know. We have my company picnic tomorrow so I'll be dropping that bomb then. Yikes.
What I'm nervous about: Just how much weight I'm going to end up gaining and how hard it will be to get it off. Oh, and having to go to the beach and the pool this summer while feeling like a beached whale.
Here I am this morning. I didn't realize how unflattering this shirt is until I looked at the picture. Oh well.
