Imagine me twiddling my thumbs over here. I’ve hit 15 weeks, but I still have a week to go before my next appointment (the one where I have to do my glucose test) and I really don’t feel too much different.
My maternity pants (these ones from Old Navy) came in the mail and even though I bought them in “short,” they are about 2″ too long. BUT! I love them! So comfortable! I heart elastic waistbands. I just bought some more pants and a dress, so I am slowly but surely getting a suitable maternity wardrobe.
I’m still doing yoga once a week, but I think pretty soon I’m not going to be able to lay flat on my stomach to do the sun salutations. Will have to figure out a way around that, since I want to keep doing yoga for as long as I can. I figure I have about two more weeks left of stomach-laying, maybe.
My pregnancy books tell me I should get used to sleeping on my left side, since next week is the big “OMG never sleep on your back again!” week and I should be prepared. Something about the weight of your uterus + baby = pressure on your veins and less oxygen for baby. So no back-laying either. Gah!
I would really like to get a prenatal massage soon. I don’t have a lot of ailments, but my lower back is kind of hurty sometimes and my neck has been stiff when I wake up. I’m convinced it’s from the side-sleeping (and yes, I do put a pillow between my knees like you’re supposed to, but… ehh). I just hate that massages are so expensive! They are worth it, I know, but it’s hard to decide to shell out the money.
I did break down and start buying some things this week. I plan on cloth diapering, and we are going with the prefolds + diaper covers method (instead of, say, AIOs) so I bought some gender-neutral diaper covers off of Etsy in size small. I will need to get some newborn ones and some size mediums, and then all the prefolds. It still ends up being cheaper for us than a diaper service, and I’m not sure how much disposables are but I don’t really want to use them, so I am okay if cloth diapering is a little more expensive. Which it might not be, either, plus we can use the diapers for future babies and spread the cost out. Math! Gah!
Anyway, the covers are basically the cutest ever and I can’t wait to get more. I told Daniel we’ll have to start finding places to put baby stuff beforehand or else it will all live on our coffee table!
