Where to begin?
How far along: 22 weeks! Only 120 days left!!
Weight gain: 25 lbs.
I get swollen feet in the mornings, mostly, but other than that, the swelling isn't so bad. I could seriously use some feet massages, though, pretty much all day every day. *drool*
I caved and dyed my hair with that Splat Luscious Raspberries color but skipped the bleach. I was so tired of my black and gray (yes, gray) hairs just so lifeless-looking that I had to do something. I feel comfortable with it and now I feel slightly better about my appearance.
It's really hard to gain so much weight when you're someone who is kind of obsessed with weight and body image and all of that kind of stuff. I try not to think about it most of the time, because I know it's good for Ellie...but every now and then, I'll get kind of upset. Mostly its in the dressing room or right before a shower...a lot of times I'll be feeling really good and sexy and all MILF-y, but then...sometimes, I will just start crying. My body looks so different. Clothes fit SO strangely. Everyone says it's all in my belly and boobs, and the rest of me looks the same, but it's hard when I notice every little change. But it's not so bad. I'm maintaining positivity.
I have my glucose testing at the end of the month....not stoked.
Other than that...still planning the baby shower and getting ready for Ellie.
I'm going to see Brand New in San Francisco in September!
Also going to Portland for like four days in August to see my friends, do Maid-of-Honor duties (For Ellie's Godmama!) and have a little baby shower. Mostly, I just really need to get out of here and I miss Libby so much.
I don't know. I'll update more.
Mama loves you, Ellie.
