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: 2.91 lbs
Baby’s Length: 15.71 in
Total weight gain/loss: I am 183 pounds. Total Weight Gain is now 26 pounds.
Maternity clothes?: Yes. I have a couple of pre-pregnancy shirts that I wear, but beyond that everything is maternity.
Favorite maternity outfit: Didn’t really have one, but the white coverall and white pants was pretty cute.
Stretch marks?: Yes, sigh. Yes.
Sleep: Waking every 3.5 hours to go to the bathroom at night.
Best moment of the week: Attending graduation parties and having the most amazing dip I have ever had in life.
Not so great moment of the week: After the party, my legs and feet were so swollen, I could push and see the imprint of my fingers
Symptoms: Back pain, round ligament pain, feet swelling, inability to get comfortable at night, cravings for water foods (watermelon, carrots, blueberries, cucumbers).
Miss Anything?: Summer sangrias. I usually kick off summer with a nice sangria at one of my favorite restaurants.
What I’m loving?: Our friends gifted us with a bouncer and bassinet for the baby
What I’m not loving?: Deciphering if it’s my hormones that make my eyebrows raise at a comment or if the comment legitimately deserves the eyebrow raise and correction.
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: Cucumbers and carrots?
Food aversion: Chicken, blech!
Gender prediction: #teamgreen This week I think it’s a boy
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: My SIL has me generating a list because she wants to host a shower for S. and I.
Looking forward to: Date night. I’m hoping S. and I can go someplace nice.
