Size of the baby: About the size of an ear of corn (1.5 pounds)
Total weight gain: About 10 pounds (yikes!)
Maternity clothes: Yes! Mainly all. I still wear some of my own tops and dresses but maternity pants are a must!
Gender: It's a GIRL! I still can't believe it when I say that and get excited all over again! Paisley Annette Hayes
Movement: Oh my word...I think we may have a rowdy one on our hands! She was moving so much last night we couldn't stop laughing because it looked like she was going to burst through my stomach at any moment- it was crazy! But her Daddy and I sure love to lay in bed at night and feel her kick- it sure is special.
Sleep: I'm finally sleeping pretty well. I have found my 'happy place'... sleeping on my left side with two pillows under my head and another between my legs.
What I miss: Feeling 'normal'. I have been blessed to have a great pregnancy where I have felt great but lately back pain has been giving me fits and some of my joints have been hurting. I feel like an arthritic old woman..ha! Oh, and I do miss laying out this summer- I am WHITE!Cravings: This week it has been all about SWEETS! I craved chocolate chip cookies one night and yogurt another night!
Symptoms: Mainly just the back pain and occasional achy joints!
Best moment this week: A great doctor's appointment and getting to hear that beautiful little heartbeat again! Also, getting to celebrate Jonathan's first Father's Day. He got a onsie that said "Daddy's Princess" and Steven Curtis Chapman's book "Cinderella".
