You guys. I'm 7 days shy of being half-way through this pregnancy! It blows my mind how quickly it has been flying by. Evie is so big now that it's really easy to feel her kick and wiggle from the outside (I love seeing G's face light up when he experiences it!) and she's bigger from head to toe than my hand can span. I often feel her wiggling from palm to finger-tips and then some.
WHAT I'M FEELING:
So many things! Tired. Achy. Thrilled every time she wiggles. Lots of (hormone-induced) anxiety. And a bit overwhelmed. Besides painting her room, nothing (and I mean nothing!) is ready for baby girl to arrive, and I'm half-way through the time I have to get ready. I keep telling myself to breathe and start in January so I can just enjoy the holidays, but the nesting urge has started to set in hard core.
WHAT I'M CRAVING:
Still nothing food-wise these days. Food never really sounds good. I am, however, itching to go to the gym most days, and LOVE that I can actively workout 3-4 days a week now. I'm not quite back to my pre-pregnancy self, but I'm back to being only 10lbs shy of what I could squat before I got pregnant, and I'm pretty proud of that!
WHAT I CAN'T STAND:
My daily headaches, nightly itches, and the predictable vomiting are all getting old quickly. But they're all manageable, and I'm a fairly comfortable and happy preggo these days.
I'm really interested in being cozy lately. I just acquired this Kate Spade scarf and beanie, and I really love them! I'm also living in my Uggs, and very happy in this set of soft loungewear from Target.
LOOKING FORWARD TO:
The "big" ultrasound on December 17th! As those of you who follow me on Snapchat (@simplicityandco) know, I recently had a not-so-fun OB-GYN appointment, and I really miss seeing Evie (although feeling her wiggle is pretty fantastic). I can't wait to spend a solid amount of time seeing her, and am really excited about sharing that with G.
