Size of Baby? The size of a squash (is it just me or does the fruit/veggie comparison seem to be getting smaller? Hm) - Developmentally, he is pretty much all set. At this point he is just building lots of baby fat!
Total weight gain? Up 26 pounds total. I seem to be on a constant path of gaining a pound a week (which according to my doctor is suppose to happen at this point).
Gender? Sweet baby boy
Maternity clothes? Been rocking the skinny maternity jeans and maternity tank tops. Also wearing the heck out of my maxi dresses/shirts. The only non-maternity clothing I've been wearing lately is work pants (I can still wear those with my belly band) and a few shirts and of course some cardigans and sweaters while in the air conditioned buildings.
Sleep? Still the same as it has been for weeks - it really depends. I find that I have a very difficult time getting up in the mornings again. While my iron supplements my doc prescribed has helped with the exhaustion during the day, I often wake up feeling like I need at least another couple hours of sleep. Still getting up about 2-3 times a night to use the washroom.
Belly Button in or out? That sucker is OUT and proud!
Best moment of the week? Celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary!
Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach. And being able to wear my normal clothes!
Cravings? Nope. Seems they have magically disappeared
- Still no stretch marks (knock on wood).
- Holy heartburn batman!!
- Swelling in my feet and lower legs
- Rib pain has come back in full force. I was in such excruciating pain on Saturday that I was contemplating going to the ER to make sure none of my ribs were fractured
- Still getting tons of kicks and jabs
- Constantly having to pee thanks to J being right on my bladder!
Mood? Still super excited and VERY anxious!
Upcoming appointments? Next OB appt is May 21st. Birth & Labour classes start tomorrow!
Looking forward to? B&L class tomorrow night and of course the long weekend!
