Gender: A boy! And we finally have a name! Well, at least a first name.
Weight gain: As of last week’s midwife appointment … +23 pounds, sitting pretty at 168 pounds total.
Sleep: I am the pillow queen. More pillows equals more comfort for mama.
Best moment this week: I took a bellybinding class on Saturday. And my sister came so I could have a binding assistant postpartum :) Then we went here for Christmas cheer :) Anyways, I’m super excited to support my body as it heals postpartum. This is the only body I have, so it’s worth my time and energy to give it what it needs to figure out life post-baby.
Worst moment this week: You guys. My back. My poor, poor back. I didn’t even know it was possible to feel this stiff. Is it the cold weather?
Miss anything: My favorite Mexican restaurant is opening up a new location super close to my house. AND THE MARGARITAS. Let’s just say, I’m giving birth and heading out for a drink.
Movement: So much! We’re moving past the kicking phase and into the body rolls that stretch my belly more than I could imagine!
Looking forward to: Wrapping up my Christmas shopping early so I can declare December the month of ultimate relaxation.

What Max thinks: “I don’t fink a weally like dat baby.” Um … this is a problem, my son!
