(Disclaimer 2: I actually turned 23 weeks on 30 Apr, but didn’t want to miss anything in the update, so I have decided my update posts will be the following Monday of the week).
Total weight gain/loss: I haven’t weighed myself this week.
Maternity clothes?: Yep. Every day, all day.
Stretch marks?: Yes
Sleep: Not too well. The baby likes to move at night and I can’t seem to get too comfortable.
Best moment of the week: Seeing my cousin when I went home. I hadn’t seen her in a while. She lives in a completely different state. I am so proud of her!!
Not so great moment of the week: Back. Ache. Oh my goodness. Oh, and the contractions. The ten contractions that came every 1 minute and 46 seconds and lasted 54 seconds long. They were not fun.
Braxton Hicks?: Yep! And I love them. They mean baby is growing and my body is adapting.
Miss Anything?: Not peeing my underwear.
What I’m loving?: Feeling this baby kick at night.
What I’m not loving?: My nausea seems to be returning, along with some cramping.
Anything make you queasy or sick: Yes, but I don’t know what it is.
Food cravings: Veggies. I crushed a ziplock bag of celery like it was a delicacy.
Food aversion: Chicken, blech!
Have you started to show yet: Yes. I think we will retire this one soon too.
Gender prediction: #teamgreen, but I think it’s a girl.
Labor Signs: No!
Belly Button in or out?: Still in, but stretched
Wedding ring on or off?: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mixed bag.
Preparations for baby: Informed the pediatrician about the baby and locked her on for a new patient. We also discussed a few names.
Looking forward to: Mother’s Day
