More than ever before, I'm really "feeling" my pregnancy these days.
Let's chat about some pregnancy notes, shall we?
Bending over is getting harder and harder.
I never realized how much I used my abs until they were gone already.
Stairs take my breath away (not in a romantic kind of way).
The baby is moving around a lot and giving me a few good kicks and punches a day. And I love them.
It's strange to think these are the last two full months (in all likelihood) that Justin and I will just be a twosome.
I think we are pretty darn set on a name, but I can't seem to pull the trigger and say, "HARK! This is his name!" (I'm not sharing here on the blog until the day he's born, but my friends and family know so you can offer them a monetary sum should you decide you need to know at this time.)
I passed my glucose tolerance test with flying colors. I actually don't know what I scored but I consider it a huge victory especially since I ate an embarrassing amount of Sour Patch Kids in the days leading up to the test.
I did find out my iron is low though (11.8 and they want it to be above 12 . . . . so close!) so I'm taking some extra iron. It sort of surprised me because I eat a bunch of spinach and steaks. Anyway, easy fix.
I feel immensely blessed that my mom and sister are throwing my a baby shower back home in Illinois. My first one here in Raleigh was absolutely wonderful!
I'm not wearing two different necklaces in these photos. The gem is reversible and is green on one side, brown on the other.
Let me tell you a little bit about this outfit. First of all, it's comfortable. In fact, I'm wearing pre-pregnancy pants (not even CLOSE to being zipped up). Second, I'm wearing a white Blanqi underneath the sweater.
I first heard about Blanqi online, through various internet friends, and when I discovered I was pregnant I thought, "I hope I can get my hands on a Blanqi to try it out because it looks amazing."
Blanqi kindly contacted me and offered to send me two to try (nude and white). And then I got kind of busy.
Last weekend at the conference, my friend Rebecca (who is due about a week after me with her 3rd) told me I had to try wearing a Blanqi. She said it's her favorite pregnancy tank.
And as soon as I got home I finally ripped that box open and tried it on.
It's very comfortable, is tight enough to hold up pre-pregnancy jeans, but has breathable fabric around the bump. It seems pretty perfect to wear after the baby is here and I'm nursing as well.
So, I'm a fan. If you are pregnant, or know someone who is, definitely look into Blanqi!
