I’m sitting amongst boxes as I type this, but by the time you read this, we will be well on our way to the new house. I’m sure much of the 5 weeks (4.5 by the time you read this ) I have left in this pregnancy are going to feel rather quick! There will be so much to do to get ready – for the holidays AND the new house! Talk about whirlwind!
The photo I have for you today is a little grainy because it was taken with a phone at night, but I wanted to show you one of my favorite holiday outfits:
This black sweater and pants have been a comfortable ensemble this year. Â I like to accessorize with a scarf around my neck (when it is chilly enough outside) and silver jewelry. Â It seems very little fits and is comfortable these days, so I am thankful for this outfit for holiday gatherings!
I’ve slept pretty well this past week. Â Several of the children have gotten to feel little baby kicks. Â My 10 year old keeps asking baby to come out. Â My 4 year old takes every opportunity he can get to just say “hi” to baby. Â My blood sugars are great, and so far, the move has been pretty seamless and painless.
I was feeling quite a few contractions (I always start to dilate around this time frame), but a friend reminded me that I needed to be drinking during this whole moving process. Â She was absolutely right! Â So, I’ll remind all of you pregnant (and nursing!) mamas –
Drink your water during this next week!
You need it and so does baby!
