Baby girl has officially started to kick up a storm. Now that I've experienced that feeling, there is really no question what is happening. It literally feels like something is kicking or punching you from the inside. The kicks aren't too forceful or startling yet, just little reminders that she is alive and - literally - kicking.
All that kicking must be using up a lot of calories, because I have been starving for the past two days. My doctor told me to cut back on the junk food (deservedly), and now that I'm watching what I eat, I can't seem to eat enough to actually fill my belly. Sigh. I guess I'll go eat some post-lunch carrot sticks for dessert.

There isn't much question in anyone's mind that John is going to spoil our little girl. I grew up the same way (spoiled by my dad), so I can't say I oppose the practice.
While I know that these expensive clothes are entirely unpractical (and we won't need most of them for over a year), at least we are having some fun getting excited for the little one on the way.

Looking forward to seeing the Hunger Games tomorrow and escaping from everything for awhile!

The baby and I are doing well. I might have felt some movement, but it's hard to be sure (not knowing what it's supposed to feel like when a baby moves inside you and all). As the belly gets bigger I'm having a harder time sleeping and getting a bit more back pain, but nothing too serious yet. We've been enjoying a lot of white cheddar popcorn lately (thanks a lot, Natalie) and ramen (not from the grocery store, but restaurants). Most little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice, but mine is made of white cheddar popcorn and ramen. Not sure what that means for her future.

Prenatal yoga. Videos, not classes. There are a few prenatal yoga classes offered nearby, but I've been enjoying doing yoga in my pajamas before work with only Harper to see. Sometimes I get pretty exhausted by some of the poses, so I can press pause feel free to sit down for a bit. I had high hopes of jogging throughout my pregnancy, but that isn't going to happen. I find myself getting pretty tired walking on the treadmill nowadays, so I congratulate myself every time I do any physical activity.
Hopefully I'll create another similar list in a month or so and fill you in on my new pregnancy-related loves.
