  • Out of breath easily when walking stairs
  • Can’t bend that well anymore to put on socks or shoes or pick up something from the floor

Maternity clothes: Jeans and tops. Got a big bag with maternity clothes from my best friend and found some cute tops and some sport pants.
Stretch marks: Nope
Miss anything: Here’s what I don’t miss:

  • getting terrible PMS every month
  • having my period for 7+ days
  • to have to pull my belly in after each meal so that it still looks flat

Looking forward to: My Christmas vacation and sleeping in daily then.
(Best) happenings this week:

  • Looked at hospital #4. We both liked it but read about this huge scandal which happened last year concerning the pediatric clinic, so now I’m a bit confused.
  • Went to the musical “Dirty Dancing”. It was made very cute but doesn’t come close to Phantom of the Opera or Grease
  • Made an appointment with the doctor who will be delivering my child (if I decide for to deliver at hospital #3)
  • Hearing that my boyfriends’ best friend got engaged and he’ll be the best man

Movement: Daily
Gender: Baby Boy
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I love seeing all the Christmas lights outside when riding/walking through the city and listening to Christmas music whilst driving my boyfriend nuts.
Sports: At the moment I go on Friday and Sunday. My heart rate is a bit wacky, it’s up to 160 after I change clothes but goes down very fast. Not sure if it’s just not working correctly or if that’s another pregnancy symptom. Also started a DVD called “fit during pregnancy” today. No pain, no sweat – never had such a relaxing sport session 🙂 It felt good though, exercises for the pelvic floor, legs, arms, it was good.
