Two weekly updates posted this week…hey, last week was rough and the update was late. Give me a break!
How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 4 lbs. according to our scale, 5 lbs. according to the doctor scale…but I’m going with 4 lbs since the doctor weighs me fully-clothed 😉
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants are my friend. But I can still wear my normal pants with the hair tie trick!
Still none from the bean. But I know additions to my already impressive
collection are soon to come. Still greasing myself up on a regular basis.
Sleep? Getting better now that my back isn’t aching all night. Still can’t sleep on that left side for extended periods of time, or I start to hurt again.
Best moment last week? Baby girl keeps getting fun packages from her noni and papa and those are happy little moments! Got to hear her heartbeat again as well at my check up the other day. Doc siad she’s a happy baby!
Movement? Feeling her a lot lately, but she still has lazy days.
Food cravings? I’m wanting fruit again all the time. And still sweets, of course, which I’m trying not to overdo, but it’s difficult sometimes when all you need in the world is chocolate.
Symptoms? Still some hip/butt/back irritation going on, reflux issues, and I almost vomited chicken back onto my dinner plate last week just because chicken is sometimes vile these days.
Labor signs? Nope.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss:Bending over without grunting, which will likely only get worse as the waist expands.
What I am looking forward to: 3 days off in a row! Sigh of relief.
The bean is the size of a cantaloupe now and weighs just over a pound. Her lungs are powering up for some good, old-fashioned air breathing when she gets out here! And some good, old-fashioned crying too 😉
