Weight Gain: Just left the Dr. and I am at a grand total of 29 lbs. Honestly….not loving this. She said I’m right on track and I’m trying to focus on that, but it is getting to me a little.
Baby is the size of: A cantaloupe
Cravings: Last week I had a craving for KFC’s mashed potatoes and gravy. I haven’t had those in at least 15 years, so that was a little weird, haha. This week I’m having a huge craving for a lobster roll. Luckily, we tend to make those at home anyways, so I can just make it warm and it will still be pregnancy safe. 🙌🏻
How I’m Feeling: Sleeping is pretty much impossible now. I’m also not able to do as much anymore without getting sore and tired. It feels like I am back in the first trimester!
Swelling is a new one, so that has been a little annoying. Wow, I sound so negative in this section and I don’t mean to be. I am so grateful to be able to carry our child, but this last week has been a little rough. I’m also getting really emotional easily, so that’s fun!
Wedding Rings: off. It finally happened and I can’t wait to be able to put them back on again after she is here.
Belly Button Status: It’s really strange because it is currently half in, half out.
Movement: Movement has slowed down a little because she is getting out of room, but still pretty active to where I don’t worry about it. The other night I swear I think she was trying to stretch her limbs out. It was a little adorable and a little uncomfortable! 😉
Favorite moment of the week: Feeling those little stretches and learning that she is already in the birthing position! I have been worried she will be breech (I’m a worrier by nature), so hopefully she doesn’t flip back up before I go into labor.
Most looking forward to: My husband coming home this weekend. He has been on a work trip since the end of April, so I have really been missing him. That might also have something to do with how uncomfortable I have been lately because he is not here. On the flip side, it has been so nice having family here until he returns. My dad is visiting this week and it has been awhile since I’ve had some one-on-one time with him, so that’s always fun.
Thankful for: Honestly, air conditioning! 😂 It is getting HOT here, so I’m thankful that we have this modern convenience.
