Now that I’m in my third trimester, and things are going to be changing more suddenly and often, I’m going to get really detailed with these posts! I’ll also be posting a Bumpdate every two weeks until 34 weeks — then it will be every week!
Size of Baby: Eggplant
Total Weight Gain: 23 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Yes, for the most part. (Side note: I may just wear maternity jeans forever. Why don’t all jeans have elastic waist bands?!)
Stretch Marks? I don’t think I have any. When checking in the early a.m., I sometimes mistake sleep marks for stretch marks. Obviously though, if I do have stretch marks, they’re barely visible (thanks to Mama Mio skin care products — which are amazing!).
Sleep: I toss and turn quite a bit before actually falling asleep, but aside from Darcy waking us up 1 – 2 times a night, which she’s prone to do, I’m still sleeping well.
Best Moment of the Last Two Weeks: Baby showers! We’ve been blessed with so many wonderful presents and an overwhelming amount of pink clothes.
Miss Anything? Running and just feeling athletic, in general.
Movement: Lots of movement! If her activity in the womb is any indication of what she’s going to be like outside of it, we’re so in for it.
Food Cravings: I haven’t had too many cravings during this pregnancy, but one thing I’m loving is cake (however, I’m not indulging this too often).
Any Food Aversions: Chinese food and pickles (so much for pregnancy cliches, right?).
Labor Signs: Nope! Stay in there Little Bit! UPDATE: When I first wrote this, I was not having any labor signs, but starting early Wednesday morning, I did begin having uterine contractions. I went to the doctor, who said there were no signs of preterm labor, and that the contractions are just something I’ll have to deal with until it’s for real, go time.
Symptoms: Still experiencing mid-back pain, starting to feel more fatigued and getting a tingly/numbness sensation in my upper abdomen that is pretty annoying.
Belly Button? Still in.
Wedding Rings? Those came off a few weeks ago.
Happy or Moody? Um, definitely moody. There have been several times just in the last week where I’ve experienced some pregnancy rage. Don’t mess with me right now.
Looking Forward To: Getting the nursery done — it’s getting closer!
