AKA, the weeks when I got REALLY fat.
Size of baby: He has gone from a Napa cabbage to a tropical coconut
Weight gain: Ugh. I don't want to talk about it. I am so freaking HUGE. My home scale says I am up 23 pounds but the stupid scale at the doctor’s office said I am up 26 pounds! What. the. heck. I’m still going by my home scale. The doctor I saw last Thursday said she wasn’t concerned with my weight gain and I remember my other OB telling me with Ella, more weight gain = cuter baby so I’m subscribing to that philosophy again this time around.
Maternity clothes: Yep. I just got 5 t-shirts on a Facebook group, and am looking for more capris and maxi dresses. It has been so warm lately and I am realizing how few summer maternity items I own!
Gender: It’s a BOY!!!
Movement: Yes and the kicks are starting to get stronger and stronger.
Cravings: I have really been into Greek pasta salads, with red onion, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Also wanting anything chocolate.
Symptoms: Feeling huge/fat/whale-like. Also starting to get what I think are Braxton Hicks? I never felt them with Ella, so I’m not totally sure that’s what they are. And just getting out of breath and tired of standing a lot more quickly these days!
Workouts: Walking and chasing Ella around!
Sleep: Starting to go downhill. It’s still decent but I am getting up twice a night to pee and sometimes have trouble getting back to sleep. Already?!
What I miss: Being skinny. My normal clothes.
Best moments: Passing my glucose test! Thank you, Jesus!!! Stocking up on baby boy clothes at some consignment sales. Making progress on his dresser (almost done!). And of course, hearing his little heartbeat at the doctor's!
Looking forward to: Finishing up the dresser! We need to fix a few small things, and then I can't wait to start stuffing his drawers full of little boy goodies! And I just ordered a few decor-type things off Etsy the other night, so I’m excited for those to arrive and to start putting everything together in his room!
