Baby is now the size of:
Yyup…I do feel like I have almost five pounds of butternut squash baby inside of me. Baby is getting SOOOOOO big, I am really not sure where I am going to put her if she gets any bigger. In good news I am FINALLY over the cold that I had been suffering from for almost a month =) I am super late this week getting this update posted, so much to do, so little time!
Sleep: Sleep isn’t too bad….I do still have to get up a couple times a night to go to the bathroom and wake up to roll over, which is an event these days. Then there are the times I wake up with sharp pains in the belly. But it could be worse, I haven’t had any leg cramps so I am happy about that.
Maternity clothes / preferred attire: Yup…..all the time. And I am starting to wonder if all my maternity clothes are going to make it to the end.
Symptoms: I have been really thirsty and digging ice water again. I have also been super tired and getting body aches.
Cravings, aversions and favorite foods: Not too many cravings or aversions I just seem to go from sooooooo hungry to overfull quickly!
Exercise: Same as the last few weeks, I am wondering how much longer I will even be able to keep up with my current schedule or if I will just go into labor at the Rec Center.
Mood: Pretty good overall but I get irritated easily and I am for sure getting over this pregnancy part. Trying (and mostly failing) at trying to enjoy the last bit of likely my last pregnancy.
Missing: Wine, running, breathing, carrying Cannon without pain, normal clothes.
Best moments: Getting to cheer my mom on to her age group win at a local 5k, she was even slowed down by running with her Golden Doodle Tucker who took first dog.
Worst moments: Not pregnancy related, but hating all the bad news lately. I was really upset to see the story about the sweet puppy who died on a United flight. The puppy was a French Bulldog, I have been hugging Huphry a little tighter and vowing to never fly with him if at all possible.
Buying: We have been shopping for a rocker for the nursery and think that we finally have landed on something we both like.
Unfortunately it won’t be this rocker that we really loved because Babies R Us is going out of business and we can’t order it.
Dreaming About: Holding my little girl and smelling her sweet newborn smell.
