Because I know all too well how these kinds of posts may affect my fellow #ttcsisters and #ttcbrothers, I include this disclaimer to forewarn you. I understand how much these posts can sting and promise to continue to add the disclaimer on any post that may be related to this pregnancy (assuming viability) so that you may have the option to bow out of reading. I understand.
(Disclaimer 2: I actually turned 28 weeks on 3 June, 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).
Our baby is now the size of an eggplant. The baby is beginning to open its eyes and blink. Total weight gain/loss: Sigh. I’m 179 pounds. Plus 9 pounds in two weeks 🙁 Doctor says this is fine and it’s all belly/belly from the looks of it. I disagree. Maternity clothes?: Yep. Every day, all day. Favorite maternity outfit: This week it was the outfit I wore to my doctor’s appointment. A black long sleeve shirt with gray maternity pants and silver accessories. It was comfortable, flexible, and looked cute. Stretch marks?: Yes, sigh. Yes. Sleep: I am still able to sleep pretty well as long as I have a pillow positioned properly. Best moment of the week: Our surprise birthday party! It was beautiful and my sisters hosted it. I’d just posted about how I didn’t think anyone was interested in having anything and they did this! I will share a post in a couple of days. Not so great moment of the week: My feet were huge by the time I got home from visiting NJ. They didn’t hurt, but man they looked funny. Braxton Hicks?: Yep! And combined with back pain and round ligament pain, they hurt for about an hour on the way back from NJ. Then, they went away. Miss Anything?: Not really. What I’m loving?: The thoughtfulness of my siblings and this pretty chill weather What I’m not loving?: Urine leaks. I sneezed and peed all over myself in the car with S. beside me. Not a great moment lol. Anything make you queasy or sick: Heat. Heat makes me sick. Food cravings: I want ice cream a lot more now. I try to have an ice cream sandwich at some point every day. Food aversion: Chicken, blech! Gender prediction: #teamgreen Still think it’s a girl though Belly Button in or out?: Still in, but stretched Wedding ring on or off?: On Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy Preparations for baby: We have baby onesies and baby stuff from the shower!!! We haven’t started on a nursery yet because we are either going to move our son into the larger bedroom in the basement or we are going to keep the baby with us for a while. Looking forward to: Celebrating my son’s upcoming 5thgrade transition.
