Another week that flew by and it was a busy one. Baby boy's movements are much stronger now and especially at night I've noticed that he really gets moving. One night my husband and I were talking to him and he was bouncing around like crazy. Making us laugh already!
Weight: 20 pounds gained!
I also found this chart on where the weight goes to be interesting. That extra weight is doing good stuff for baby boy.
Body: Heartburn is still my biggest negative symptom. Just need to get some Tums and hopefully that will help. I'm feeling a little bit more tired lately. Definitely know when I need to take it easy. On Saturday we hiked a few miles with the dogs, which felt fantastic, but I was tired the next day. That probably had something to do with the fact that we put new mulch in all our gardens as well. My husband did all the heavy lifting, I just sat in the garden and helped spread out the mulch. I took it much easier on Sunday and put my feet up.
Also, I've had some moments of feeling nauseous again. Almost felt like I was back in the first trimester. Nothing too terrible, but once again food didn't sound appetizing.
I had my work baby shower which was so nice. My law firm was so generous. I think we are officially all set with the essentials that we need or close to it. Of course I know there will be things that we haven't thought of that will come up, but we'll learn as we go. It's a very nice feeling though to at least feel prepared with sleeping arrangement, car seat, diapers, wipes, clothes, bath stuff...and of course lots of love for our baby boy!

Also on Saturday, my husband and I did our big Babies R Us shopping trip! We got our jogger that comes with an infant car seat, bouncer, cloth diapers, some disposable diapers, bottles...basically we finished getting all the essentials we felt we needed. Last things we plan to get include a mattress cover and possibly a bassinet. Gift cards were a huge help on this shopping trip and we are so grateful!

With nine weeks to go it feels like such a short amount of time and forever at the same time. Just enjoying the journey one day at a time!
