DISCLAIMER: This post contains information about our pregnancy. 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 30 weeks on 17June, 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 a large butternut squash. The skin is still wrinkly, but as fat accumulates, the baby will fill out.
Baby’s Weight: 3.31 lbs
Baby’s Length: 16.180 in
Total weight gain/loss: I am still 183 pounds. Total Weight Gain is now 26 pounds.
Maternity clothes?: Every single day. Every single outfit.
Stretch marks?: Yep. Tons of them.
Sleep: Not very well at all. I usually wake up at midnight and stay awake until 3 because I cannot get comfortable at all.
Best moment of the week: Leaving work on Friday. I was more than ready for a three day weekend.
Not so great moment of the week: My hormones were all over the place last week. I preferred being left alone to communicating.
Symptoms: Back pain, round ligament pain, feet swelling, inability to get comfortable at night, cravings for water foods (watermelon, carrots, blueberries, cucumbers).
Miss Anything?: Walking without waddling.
What I’m loving?: Getting closer to our due date.
What I’m not loving?: S.’s comments about my weight. He has no idea how close he is to my wrath.
Movement: Pretty consistent big moves. The baby still rests low so I feel it in my pelvic region a lot unless it wants to float up.
Anything make you queasy or sick: Heat. Too much heat makes me sick.
Food cravings: Blueberries (refrigerated) and cucumbers
Food aversion: Chicken, blech!
Gender prediction: #teamgreen
Belly Button in or out?: Stretched in
Wedding ring on or off?: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy
Preparations for baby: None really
Looking forward to: Sleep!
