Um, hello last week of the second trimester!! I can't believe we're here already! I'm soaking up every moment of the noticeably pregnant but not extremely uncomfortable phase. I'm having a lot of fun dressing the bump, and actually starting to cherish the quiet moments when I lay down at night and get to just watch my belly move (who'd have thought?! I'm not usually the sentimental type, but this little girl has already wormed her way into my heart!). I also passed my Glucose Tolerance Test, so this girl is (carefully) continuing to indulge her pastry cravings with gusto!
WHAT I'M FEELING:
So good right now. I've discovered that nightly baths and sudoku really help with creating down time and helping me relax the aches that are inevitable when carrying around an extra 20 lbs, and even my memory is more on point than it has been since I got pregnant. I'm getting really excited for Evie actually being here, but at the same time soaking up my alone time with G, because I know we'll have less and it'll look different in a few short months.
WHAT I'M CRAVING:
Berries, berries, berries. Just give me ALL the berries.
WHAT I CAN'T STAND:
Nothing new. I still don't like being touched when I'm sleeping, and I get REALLY grouchy when anything keeps me from sleeping.
PRODUCTS I'M LOVING:
I decided to just go for it and stock the diaper bag this past week (I couldn't wait to spend time with my Kate Spade bag any longer!), so my current crushes are all baby-centric! I really love this smaller Sophie la Giraffe for the diaper bag, these odor blocking bags, and this super chic wet-bag. I also grabbed an assortment of these Truffle clutches for my personal items, so I can see what's in them and swap from diaper bag to purse with ease!
LOOKING FORWARD TO:
My Baby Shower on the 12th!! I can't wait to see, chat with, and share this time with some of my favorite girls in Houston. G and I also have some fun trips on the horizon, including a weekend staycation for Valentine's Day, a week in Austin, and our Babymoon/My Birthday trip at the end of February.
