Bumpdate : 22-24

It's that time again!  
I really love looking at these progression photos.
I don't think I will ever stop being amazed that there's a real life human growing in my body.

(I just realized I am a week behind in this update...sorry!)
Due date : November 25th...Black Friday! 
Baby size :Corn on the cob, Bunch of grapes, Eggplant
Gender : BOY! Target started putting out fall/winter items...heaven help my wallet.
Cravings : Still all of the fruit and recently soup has sounded really good.  Which makes no sense with it being August but oh well!   I've also tempted fate with ice cream and it went semi okay and of course, that always sounds good
Aversions : Nothing lately!
Maternity clothes : For work it is just about all maternity pants/skirts/dresses.  A lot of my non maternity shirts are still okay but comfort always wins out regardless.
Best thing so far : Getting my shower invites in the mail...so fun!
Mister finally has felt a few kicks and that has been really special ;)
Looking forward to : Showers and getting the nursery settled
Work outs : Still going at it!  I am at about 4 days a week and trying to incorporate some prenatal yoga for stretching and gaining a little extra room in there. I did have my (most likely) final run recently.  Sadly my stamina is still there but it started to not feel so great on my bones.  A very sad day...
Sleep : Eh its touch and go on this one.  Overall my sleep is still pretty good but there are nights when I wake up for about 30 minutes to well over an hour and then finally doze back off.  I also tend to get SUPER hot in the middle of the night.  That is NOT fun. 
Movement : I just LOVE feeling his kicks though if he would like to move down a little from in my sternum that would be okay. 
Nursery : The crib and glider are in and curtains are being made!  Coming right along!
Mood : So far so good as long as I get the sleep I need and remember to take some rest/down time.

Well, first of all, you look MARVELOUS ❗️ I am so glad that you are feeling good. Hate to tell you (your OB probably already has!) that the sleep problems are hormonal. MY FRIENDS AND I have those NOW, on the other side of fifty, if you know what I mean. You are exactly right to rest WHENEVER possible. We can not WAIT for Baby Boo❗️

You'll be back out there - it's just a season in running life! And if it helps, I got faster when I got back to it after baby :) So many other fun things in this time though - sharing baby kicks and showers and getting stuff into the nursery, yes!!

Lookin' good girlfriend! :) I wish you hadn't reminded me that Target's fall/winter stuff is out haha- because now I have to go look for my little guy! I'm so impressed you are working out 4x a week so far, that is AWESOME and I'm sure will help so much in labor/delivery/recovery!
