Brownsville, Charro Days, Week in Review

9/52: CHARRO DAYS 2014

This week our little border town (which seems to be turning into a big city) celebrated Charro Days! We had a lot of fun getting dressed up and going to the parade and Sombrero Festival. Here’s a little more of what our week looked like…

Pregnancy Update: Damian’s kicks and movements seem to be a lot stronger than Eva’s were, and the shape of my stomach is constantly changing. It’s amazing to feel and watch, and I know from experience it’ll be the thing I miss most about pregnancy. My belly is getting bigger and bigger everyday. I’ve reached the point where people are constantly putting their hands on my belly. I don’t mind a bit, though. I love seeing the excitement in their eyes. I’ve finally reached the point “where I should be” as far as weight gain. I’ve packed on the pounds since arriving in South Texas, which I always do when I’m visiting home- pregnant or not. Now it looks like I’ll be gaining about the same as I did with Eva (right at 25lbs) so I’m okay with that. It’s definitely getting harder for me to eat all this yummy Mexican food, though. I ate about 4 or 5 tiny slices of jalapeño with some brisket the other day and boy did I pay the price. The heartburn was brutal. At least I don’t get heartburn just from drinking water like I did with Eva, though. I’m still lifting and running every morning without any major issues and look forward to hitting the gym full force once this baby is out. Oh, by the way, it’s March, which means I’ll be having a baby NEXT MONTH! Eeeek!
