So. Yeah. This has been, you guessed it! a long ass week. BUT TOMORROW IS FRIDAY, LET ME PLAY YOU THE SONG OF MY PEOPLE AND WE SHALL DANCE!
Because this has been such a trashy week, I COMPLETELY forgot to check in with baby boy this week. So let’s get that out of the way 4 days late!
How far along? About 18 and a half weeks (I really have to got to get better at doing these on the new week mark…)
Maternity clothes? Yes. A couple pairs of work pants. I need to get some blue jeans, though! I can’t wear blue jeans to work (we don’t even have blue jean Friday…) BUT, on the weekends I would rather have something that fits other than sweat pants and work slacks.
Stretch marks? *big giant dramatic sigh* they are indeed starting to spring up. Just one or two, but still. I’m not too worried about it, though. I’m just going to treat myself like a bad ass tiger.
Sleep: Some nights are better than others. But I’m peeing an average of 3 times a night which is really unfortunate…
Movement: I SWEAR I FELT A LITTLE KICK A FEW DAYS AGO. I was laid back in my chair during lunch with my feet up on my desk when BOOP! I felt a little spring like movement against my skin. I haven’t felt anything definitive like that since. But, sometimes when we are doing the fetal doppler, I can hear his movements.
Food cravings: CHEESEBURGERS. WITH ONION RINGS. AND RANCH. AND CHEESE FRIES.
Gender: BOY BOY BOY. We found out on Friday it’s a boy 🙂 His name is Raylan James! And I’m so madly in love with his little self, I feel like I might explode.
Baby is: Last Friday, RJ weighed in at 7 ounces. Haha, go baby! He is going to be a healthy little man.
