✔ feeling huge. ahhh, pregnancy weight gain. you can’t exactly complain about it: it’s just part of the process! but — and i never would have believed this before pregnancy — it’s still completely un-fun. at 18 weeks i feel like i’m already lumbering around!
i think i’m up at least 8 lbs from where i started: on the generous side, i believe, for this point in the pregnancy.
[yep. hopefully i won’t get admonished for this by the OB on friday.]
i keep reminding myself that this is EXACTLY what happened last time – i gained more weight early on, and much less than average in the 3rd tri, adding up to a very reasonable total that came off without any real effort.
but. i still feel kind of like a water buffalo.
✔ updating the podcasts and music on my phone. not sure why, but i never seem to get around to this regularly! and the podcast app, which is supposed to auto-update, often fails me.
on the docket for this morning’s commute: this american life. [i know, not original. but so good!]
✔ so excited to hear about laura vanderkam’s new project: mosaic. i may even be IN the book [in anonymous form, of course 🙂 ]. it doesn’t come out until 2015 but i can pretty much guarantee that i will still be interested in the topic by then.
✔ loving this post: menu planning station from deliciously organized. beautiful! although a currently has a habit of stealing my shopping list when we go to the store on sundays. usually i make a ‘decoy’ list for her [in addition to my real list, which i depend on]
which is sometimes successful.
✔ living without a closet. or a washer/dryer. did you know we reaaaaaally aren’t moved in yet? i’ve stopped caring [sort of] but it’s definitely starting to get old! josh and i just need some time together to figure these home-related things out, and we haven’t had nearly enough. so looking forward to having this weekend off together [and TWO — yes TWO! — in october.]
