Size of baby: He has gone from a Hawaiian pineapple to a Florida pomelo
Weight gain: Well, I am up to 29 pounds on my scale at home. The doctor's scale continues to hate me, and said I was up 33 pounds.
Maternity clothes: All the time. I am getting to the point where my regular tank tops and t-shirts are not quite long enough. Only a few more weeks till I start stealing Trav's shirts to sleep in!
Gender: It’s a BOY!!!
Movement: Yep. I still haven't been able to tell if he has the hiccups though, but he spazzes out from time to time and it cracks me up!
Cravings: Strawberries (thank God it's almost strawberry season!) and fruit sorbet. Anything chocolate after a meal.
Symptoms: Ugh. So many things. It is too early in the game for all of this. But….my back is killing me probably a good 50% of the day (worse in the evenings), sciatic nerve pain getting more consistent and intense, cramping/Braxton Hicks, feeling tired more frequently, feeling a little nauseous from time to time (especially in the mornings), SUPER hormonal/moody, I have to pee all. of. the. time., and I cannot stand up for literally more than 20 minutes. Basically I am just starting to get really uncomfortable, so I would appreciate if this child would be a week or 2 early and shorten my suffering!
Workouts: I've been going on short walks around the block with Ella, but I always have to stop back at home to pee/drink more water.
Sleep: Getting up at least twice (that’s the bare minimum) to pee. Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night, I am ready to go with my day, and I have to make myself get back in bed and go to sleep!
What I miss: Wine. Always wine. Running/exercising. My regular clothes.
Best moments: Celebrating Easter with our little family. Can't wait to buy BOY Easter clothes next year! Also, during the Final Four games, Baby Boy was moving all around...he was so excited for the Tarheels! (We won't mention the National Championship game...)
Looking forward to: It's almost baby clothes washing time!!!! My favorite!!
