Gender: Girl 💕
Weight Gain: Ugh, starting to not like this section, haha. Right now I am up 22 lbs. My Dr. isn’t concerned, but I can’t help not liking the scale right now.
Baby Growth: Eggplant
Cravings: One that has started recently is chocolate milk. I am absolutely obsessed with it right now and would drink it like it is water if I didn’t restrain myself. It’s even gotten so bad to where when I wake up it is the first thing I think about. Publix chocolate milk only, by the way. No other brand compares. 😉
How I’m Feeling: I don’t want to complain too much because I know it is such a blessing to be able to carry our baby. Let’s just say that I am definitely feeling like I am in the 3rd trimester now. No energy at all and tons of aches, especially at night.
My hormones are also getting really bad. I find myself constantly weepy. Yesterday I got really upset about something and started sobbing, then laughing hysterically, then sobbing again. It was nuts.
Wedding Rings: Still on, but I’m afraid that will change soon. I really hope I’m wrong.
Belly Button Status: Like the previous, still an innie. I don’t expect this to stay the same way for long though.
Movement: Still moving pretty good. Yesterday when my husband was home, she started moving like crazy in there to where we could see it all on the outside. She was shaking my belly and making it jump up and down. It was a little freaky, but so sweet at the same time. I am so glad Dalton was here to witness it. 😊
Favorite Moment this Week: I’ve been feeling a ton of pelvic pressure lately, particularly on my left side. I mentioned it to my Dr., so she started to feel around. Turns out that baby girl likes to keep her head in that area. That was pretty neat to learn.
Sleep: Really not so bad yet, but I know that will probably change soon. I will say that I always wake up early in the morning (around 5 a.m.) and can never go back to sleep afterwards.
Clothes: Some of the maternity clothing that I bought at the beginning of my second trimester is already starting not to fit. 😩 I will probably have to cave soon and order more, but I just hate spending the money on it for only a few more months. I’m thinking of getting some cheap maternity dresses off Amazon to get me by.
Most Looking Forward To: My mom coming to visit in a couple of weeks.
Thankful for: Passing my glucose testing. Praise the Lord! 🙌🏻
