p's favorite things - 28 weeks!

can I say it again? 28 weeks! 7 months! 3rd trimester!

today, 6 june 08, the 1st favorite thing is...













bio oil. this rules. I use it every day and it gives me amazing (non-greasy) relief from a tight, itchy belly. with a (ummmmm, almost) 30 lb weight gain I don't have one single stretch mark. not one! and with lavender, calendula and rosemary oils, it smells yummy too! burt's bees mama bee belly butter is another fave.















2nd favorite thing - cat naps.

I'm so lucky to work from home. every day around 2:30 I "rest my eyes" for 30 - 45 minutes. it's brilliant! all of a sudden I'm just so tired these days and a little mid afternoon snooze makes all the difference. I go back to work and I'm way more productive and clearheaded. yesterday I had about 20 men up on my roof ripping off and replacing shingles. it was crazy loud and unbelievably distracting. but tubby here had no problem dozing right through the destruction and hammering. between 2 - 2:30 I was out cold. ooooh! I love the nap.

Isn't it amazing and crazy that we're at 28 weeks?!?!?!?
Thanks for the recommendation on the creams/potions. I've been using Medela's Double Stretch Mark lotion, which is great, but hideously expensive. So, yeah for new recs!

Congrats, you're getting really close! This was a perfect post for me to land on today - one of my friends was asking about creams/oils for stretch marks. That is AWESOME that with close to 30 lbs, you don't have any stretch marks!

Thanks for the recs! I bought the Bio-Oil and am loving it for my night-time belly moisturizer.
Cheers to our progress!
