Size of Baby: Leek
Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs — my weight is definitely holding steady at this point. I have actually grown since my last appointment and am only two weeks behind in measurements. Doctor said she’s not worried about lack of weight gain given that I’m growing — and neither am I!
Maternity Clothes?: Still in maternity clothes but daydreaming of my real clothes.
Stretch Marks? Still none.
Sleep: Remember how I was bragging about not waking up at night? Now, I’m waking up every two hours to go to the bathroom — it’s officially practice time for those nighttime feedings.
Best Moment of the Last Week: Celebrating Charlotte’s THIRD birthday!
Miss Anything?: Not being/feeling huge.
Movement: She’s definitely starting to make a break for it and push downward with her movements. So that feels great.
Food Cravings: Unfortunately, I’ve been wanting McDonald’s hot fudge ice creams this week.
Any Food Aversions: I feel like such a hypocrite saying this, but I’m actually tired of pizza. It’s hands down my favorite food! But we’ve been eating so much lately on those lazy nights when I don’t want to cook that I’m totally over it.
Gender: Girl — which we confirmed at our ultrasound last week. No surprises on delivery day!
Labor Signs: I’ve been having contractions since last Wednesday. They were pretty close together when they started out that day — averaging five to eight minutes apart — but they tapered off. Since then, I’ve been having them all throughout the day.
Symptoms: Nausea, cramping, lower back pain, mid-back pain, fatigue, pelvic pressure and pain as well as sciatic nerve pain. You should see the kinesiology tape all over my back holding me in place. #pregnancyisbeautiful
Belly Button? Still in.
Wedding Rings? All rings are off.
Happy or Moody? Still super tired.
Looking Forward To: Meeting Amelia and a week of plan-less days leading up to our due date.
