What was your best moment this week?: My husband took me on a "babymoon" to the beach and I woke up at 3 a.m. in the hotel room and just stared at him while he slept, praying for him and thanking God that he gave him to me to be the father of our son. It was a really special sentimental moment. :)
What are you looking forward to next week?: Being in the 3rd trimester!
What emotions have you been experiencing this week?: It's been a very emotional week for me, I was slightly depressed of how big I am getting, and knowing that I'm only going to get bigger in the next 14 weeks doesn't help to think about. Also, I am planning to have a natural, water birth, so sometimes I randomly get very insecure about whether I can "do it" or not.
Are you wearing maternity clothes yet?: Oh yes, I'm carrying very low, so I can't wear any of my regular skirts, but I can still wear most of my shirts.
Have any stretch marks?: Not yet, PRAISE God. Hopefully that stays that way! Cocoa butter, please don't fail me.
How much weight have you gained?: 16 lbs. I think...going to the midwife this week.
Has your belly button popped out?: No, and I really think that's gross! I will totally put a band aid over it, if it does!
Have you felt any kicks?: Oh yes, all day and night. My son is definitely going to be a soccer player like his daddy!
Know the gender yet?: He is 100% a boy! :)
