tender breasts

This week's big developments: By this week, your baby weighs 2.5 pounds and measures 16 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

Weight Gain/Loss:  +11 pounds
Sleep:  Brayden has been amazing sleeping in his crib. Sadly now I can't seem to get comfortable. I toss and turn all night. Left side, right side, sitting slightly up... 
Best Moment This Week: Best moment this week with Brayden was he started WALKING! My little 9 month baby is walking. *tears* Time is flying by way too fast! Best moment this week with Elena was the other night I was laying in the bath poking what I think was her butt and she started kicking back. It seems insane that she's already getting so big and strong. I'm truly so blessed!
Movement: ALL THE TIME. Love her kicks and wiggles. 
Food Cravings/Aversions: This week I actually ate sauerkraut! Hows that for a weird craving. 

What I Miss: I am still missing my clothes fitting right. Starting to get the lovely love handles! 
Stretch Marks:  Ive been keeping an eye out for any new ones but they seem to be doing fairly well. Seeing as stretch marks are genetic and my mother has them I knew I was going to get them too. I am thankful to have the few I do have. After this pregnancy I will be doing a tell and show all fourth trimester post. 
Belly Button: Brayden loves to pick at my belly button. He is so silly. He thinks mommies tummy is a drum.
Mood: This week I actually struggled with the stress and hormones. I took a slight break from social media to allow myself to calm down. With my pregnancy hormones, lets just say, my attitude is ten times worse. 
Labor SignsBaby girl is comfy inside and I am content with her there for the next 3 months. 
Upcoming Appointments/Events: I finally went to the hospital this morning and did my glucose test. I hope that my Doctor gets the results in time due to the fact that I put it on the back burner than life happened and I almost forgot to get it done. I was suppose to have my first appointment with my Midwife tomorrow but sadly she hasn't got her credentials to accept my insurance yet so I will be seeing another female OBGYN. I don't mind I have heard many good things about this doctor but I am still anxious to get back to my normal comfort zone with my midwife before things start to get more "serious". I have a 3D ultrasound next Wednesday on my 29th week. 
What I look forward to: Seeing my baby girls face. Having my midwife back. Moving into our house.  My "baby sprinkle". Brayden's first birthday. The birth of my baby girl and marrying the love of my life. 

Weekly Wisdom: Never forget to tell your loved ones how much you love them. You may miss the chance someday. Life works in mysterious ways. 

Starting weight 119lb - Starting waist measurement 31in. 

I am now 130.2 lbs and 37 3/4 in.
