Fun Facts Friday {7/19}

by Courtney on July 19, 2013

1. Well my friends, we have officially made it to Baby Tooth’s due date! And you want to know what I’m doing? I’ll be heading in to work later this morning. I know you’re jealous. Let’s hope it’s the last day!

2. Jay and I did have an appointment this morning, including another ultrasound. Chubster is looking as cute as ever (oh man, I’m already becoming that mom) and even scored an A+ on his “exam.” But yet, I’m still just a measly 2cm dilated. Right now he’s measuring about 7lbs 14oz…okay, I can handle that!

3. Last night Jay and I went out for ice cream at The Snowman and then came back home and swam (aka doggy paddled and floated for me) in the pool for about a half hour. It was such a great way to spend the evening!

4. Surprisingly enough, I feel like this ridiculous heat wave hasn’t been all that awful for me. Everyone keeps asking, “OMG how are you dealing with this heat?!” Honestly, I feel like it’s no worse than if I wasn’t preggo. Either way, it’s hot…but I am lovin’ our central air these days, that’s for sure!!

5. I think I’m officially in “I’m gonna eat whatever I want right now” mode. And it’s basically all carbs. Pasta for dinner last night (with ice cream after). A toasted bagel with butter the night before that. And this morning I’m totally planning on grabbing a couple blueberry munchkins from Dunkin Donuts. No shame at all. Bring on the good stuff.

6. I can’t believe how excited you guys are over the Reebok giveaway! Love it! Keep those entries comin’…winner headed out way sometime tomorrow. Maybe? ;-)

7. Alright I think that’s all I’ve got for this morning. Keep sending me those baby vibes my friends!! Happy Friday!

I cant wait for your baby to come. This is my 1st comment over here but I have been following you for some time. I am now 32 week with my little girl Elishka (Czech name) :) I cant wait for her to come to meet her father and her older brother :) I hope your birthgiving will be as short as it can be :) With no complications. And of course I wish your baby likes its new world :)

C’mon Baby Horan!

Glad the heat isn’t getting to you, especially now that you’ve hit your due date and there’s already enough discomfort involved. I’m just over 33 weeks with my baby girl and I am DYING. I used to be constantly freezing so being hot is definitely a change for me. I have a furnace attached to my body! Needless to say, I have been keeping our local froyo shops in business!

Here’s to hoping Baby Tooth makes his appearance soon! So excited to finally “meet” that bundle of joy – I honestly feel like I’m waiting for one of my friends to have a baby!

And there is absolutely no shame in enjoying the foods you love. I know you’ve said that you’re aware you will probably reign in your eating a bit after Baby Tooth is born, but I just hope you also realize it’s OK to keep enjoying the foods you love after you deliver. It’s so nice to hear about the progress you’ve made in your relationship with food thus far – I hope to continue to see that in your posts. It’s so freeing to just let go and truly eat intuitively! I’m sure you’ll handle it all just fine.

BTW totally acceptable to carbo-load before the BIGGEST workout of your life. RIGHT? :)

I think you should have your munchkins with a side of pineapple. Maybe a pineapple smoothie. And pineapple ice cream with pineapple topping. And why not add some pineapple to your dinner side dish as well, right?! ;) I can’t wait to see the little guy!!!

To those of you who mentioned you are/were lovin’ on the carbs right before going into labor … Maybe it’s your body’s way of “carb-loading” for the big event (i.e. labor)??? LOL, just a thought …
