Belly Button in or out? in, but it’s definitely more shallow now.
Wedding rings on or off? on, but definitely having swelling in my fingers especially in the mornings
Sleep: I didn’t sleep as well this week. Last night I finally got a good nights sleep again. I pulled out the boppy maternity pillow again that I put away because it took up a lot of space in the bed. But it definitely does help.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy this week. It was amazing how much I talked about my belly this weekend at the wedding. The belly really popped and all of our friends and family were asking about little Brody.
Looking forward to: finishing up this next week and entering into the final trimester! I can’t believe it. I’m also looking forward to seeing all the progress that we are making on the house. Things are really moving quickly now which is fun. I’ll post an update tomorrow!
