Um...we're in single digit weeks now?!
|Ha, not sure what that face is about!|
I woke up that morning and asked J, "Where did this belly come from?!"
How far along are you?
Total weight gain:
I'm not loving it, but not too much I'm told
How big is baby?:
What to Expect still says a head of lettuce, but changed the length and weight! (19" 3.9lbs...that's one HUGE head of lettuce). Apparently, Pierce should start gaining half a pound a week from here on out! Holy big baby!
always...the closer it gets to my due date the less I want to spend any more money on anything new
So far, only on my hiney
I've been applying Palmers Cocoa Butter religiously...hoping that helps matters
It really just depends. I toss and turn best I can until I fall asleep, usually wake up an hour or two later to pee, then I'm back to sleep for quite a while usually
Best moment this week?:
Relaxing on my 4 day weekend. I think Pierce needed it as much as I did!
J's getting to see and feel more of it, which is amazing to watch his reactions to his son's movement.
nothing that I can think of, other than anything cold because of this heat!
Not too bad, kind of depends on the day,
I've started not wanting meat on occasion...no bueno considering that's protein and iron
NO! Just Braxton-Hicks every day since Monday. No pain with them, I just notice that my stomach is hard as a ROCK!
Belly button in or out?:
Still in, but it's either going to end up flat or out by the end of this 9 weeks!
What I miss:
sleeping WELL, and not being tired all of the time and congested...
I'm constantly congested
I'm starting to miss my pre-pregnancy body and walking without a waddle!
What I'm looking forward to:
Moving next weekend!! I can't physically move anything, but moving into our own space, setting up our apartment, Pierce's nursery, I'm stoked!
What I'm not looking forward to:
Labor...we've taken 2 of 4 childbirth classes...last class caused a bit of anxiety. Seriously, J looked at me and asked if I was about to cry. They were talking about all of the IVs and urinary caths (neither of those caused the anxiety, had too many surgeries in my lifetime to worry about those), epidurals, shots in my hoohaa area, episiotomies, and enemas...Yeah, I started to freak out.
J starting to see the movement!
