Total Weight Gain: 9 lbs total. Didn’t weigh myself this week. I find myself repeatedly asking my husband if I look pregnant or if I just look fat. I constantly check my bump in the mirror. I guess it all feels a bit surreal still.
Maternity Clothes: I’m sticking to my “the less clothes the better” philosophy. Been wearing lots of dresses, skirts, shorts and tank tops.
- Heartburn and acid reflux – still there!
- HUNGRY – I swear I have to eat a snack every 2 hours
Sleep: Some nights good, some nights not-so-good. My sleep quality depends on how many pees I have to get up for and how sore my lower back and hips are. I find myself often waking up in the middle of the night, unable to get comfortable again and staying awake for 1/2 an hour to an hour.
Food Cravings: Fruit, plain chips, – pretty boring this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Mainly just eating too much or my acid reflux.
Movement: He loves to kick up a storm – especially if I’m awake in the middle of the night. The only kicks that bother me are his “double bounces” where I get a kick on both sides one immediately following the other. Otherwise, I love the simple reminders that my little man is always with me. ❤
Stretch Marks: Yes, definitely coming in now. They are all below my belly button.
Baby Bump: Growing and growing… Photo taken at 26 weeks, 4 days.
Labour Signs: Too early.
Belly Button In or Out?: Innie but my skin is really stretching around my belly button. My belly button scar from my laparoscopy is all bubbled and gross looking. My OB even checked it out at my last appointment, but it’s all good.
Wedding Rings on or off?: Off due to the heat.
Happy or Moody?: Last week was a mix of ups and downs. Overall, my tolerance for stupidity/ignorance is at a zero. I do find it harder to bring my anxiety back down if it creeps up on me. I had a bit of a meltdown on the way to the cabin on Saturday, but the release was much needed to lead into a relaxing weekend.
Purchases for baby: A playpen sheet, two crib sheets
Purchases for Momma: Two maternity t-shirts off Zulily
Miss Anything?: Sitting down to eat a large meal. I don’t know how anyone could eat a Thanksgiving or Christmas supper while pregnant!
Looking forward to: Reaching the 3rd trimester 🙂
