Baby is now the size of:Baby is giant….well she is probably normal baby sized but I feel giant. I am very interested to see how big she is when she is born. Cannon was 7 lbs 13oz at birth, much smaller than the 9lbs + I was fearing.
Sleep: Sleep is very limited and uncomfortable. Maybe I will have good sleep again in 2 or 3 years…..mamas out there, when did you sleep well again?
Maternity clothes / preferred attire: Pajamas. But since I am still working I have to get dressed most days. The biggest thing is that my feet are getting SO HOT so I have been wearing sandals even when the weather isn’t very warm. I find that if my feet get too hot I start to feel ill.
Symptoms: General discomfort, exhaustion and short temper. I think having high blood pressure really makes me feel on edge.
Cravings, aversions and favorite foods: Craving easy comfort food. It’s going to be a shock to the system when this baby is out and I have to start watching what I eat again.
Exercise: I have been advised against exercise (even walking too much) as it can increase blood pressure. I am so looking forward to family walks!
Mood: Excited, nervous, impatient. Stressing about getting everything ready/done before baby comes.
Missing: wine, breathing, sleeping, playing actively with Cannon.
Best moments: Fun moments were:
Worst moments: Having to wake up Cannon late on Saturday night, drop him off at his grandparents so we could go to the hospital.
Buying: This week we are focused on getting the house ready and getting easy to make food in the house.
Dreaming About: Getting to meet my little girl.
