Anchors Aweigh


Things I Want To Remember: Week 17

The days since my nephew was born are absolutely flying, which means this pregnancy as of late is absolutely flying! If people ask me how I'm feeling, my response is usually something to the effect of "Oh I'm great! This is the pregnancy sweet spot!". It's so true. Second trimester, I just love you. 

1. I had a doctor's appointment this week! My doctor found the heartbeat immediately, and it's going strong at 150 bpm! So funny, he found it on my right side, which is where I always found Taylor's when I would listen with my doppler. When I think about it, I feel this little one wiggle more on my right than I do on my left. I guess my babies just like hanging out on the right side!

2. I was anxious to see what I weighed at the doctor's office this week. As of week 13, I was still at my pre-pregnancy weight. I knew I had gained weight since then, but I had no idea how much. I was up 7 pounds! It makes sense- I feel like I eat everything. I'm hungry all. the. time. All the time. 

3. I got back into the swing of things exercise-wise this week and have been power-walking most mornings. It feels so good to get moving!

4. I showed Parker my bump one morning like I do every day, and he said "Oh my gosh! It looks like you have a basketball under your shirt!" I told him ohhh, just wait. ;)

5. Feeling our baby move is still my favorite thing ever! He moves a lot, and I feel him when I am sitting/standing still. I just love it!

6. We introduced Jenny to my nephew this week, and she was completely apathetic. She noticed us holding a baby but really didn't care. We'll see if she cares more when the baby actually lives with her!

Blogger Q&A

It's been ages since I did a Q&A, and with several new faces around this little space (welcome!), I thought there was no time like the present to change that. Here are 10 perfectly random questions that I thought were light and fun. And here's a picture of me (Chelsea, if we haven't met!) and Parker (my main squeeze) that I pulled from the archives. 

1. Are you named after anyone?
I am not. My parents wanted my siblings and me to have our own unique names, so they didn't give us family names. I love my name though!

2. When is the last time you cried?
Hmm, a couple of days ago? I cried a lot when my nephew was born 11 days ago but have probably cried since. Pregnancy hormones are real, and I always tear up on Sunday mornings at church thinking about Taylor Grace. I didn't used to be a crier!

3. What is your favorite lunch?
Currently, a panini with turkey and cheese. I eat one every day and really look forward to it. My sister teases me because I eat lunch at 10 AM but honestly, I'm just hungry all the time. I'm in that stage of pregnancy where I cannot seem to get full, and I look forward to my hot sandwich more than anything else!

4. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
No, but I untie them before I put them back on. I don't want to mess up the heels but am too lazy to untie them when I take them off, so I pay for it when I go to put them on again. 

5. Do you think you're smart?
I've learned there is no set definition of "smart". I think I am socially smart, fairly creative, and a decent writer if I put forth the effort. Math and science aren't my strong suits... that would be my husband!

6. What is the first thing you notice about people?
This is weird, but I instinctively look down at someone's left hand upon meeting them to see if they are married. Knowing this fact changes nothing about how I will interact with them, but for some reason it is the first thing I notice about a stranger. 

7. What is your favorite smell?
Parker, Jenny, and desserts baking in the oven. 

8. What is your natural hair color?
I have never dyed my hair, so what you see is what you get! I have always described my hair as dirty blonde. Parker thinks this is silly and says it is light brown. I secretly think he's right, but I'm too stubborn to change my position on it after all these years. In my defense, my hair does lighten up a lot in the Summer!

9. What is your favorite food?
This is a hard question to answer when pregnant because most of my favorite foods stopped sounding good early on. Traditionally, I am a big fan of anything with cheese or anything with chocolate. 

10. What is your current Netflix show of choice?
Grey's Anatomy. Yall, I need help. I have seen this entire show through once before but for some reason decided to start it all over again and can't stop watching. There are so many good shows that I have never seen, and I can't stop watching the one I have!

Happy hump day yall! Halfway to the weekend!
