How far along: 36
Gender: Little baby girl :)
Weight gained: 24.8 lbs
Inches gained: About 11
Working Out: Eh not as great this past week. I’m mostly just trying to stay awake after work to help with dinner and house chores. If I do workout, it needs to be in the morning.
Clothing Choices: Stuff with stretch or that’s already loose and flowy. I have a ‘delicates’ hamper thing attached to my door and I hadn’t realized that for months, I mean months 3 of my flowy tops were just in the bottom, I had TOTALLY forgotten about them, and it’s like I just got new clothes!!! One of them is the top I’m wearing in today’s photo!
Belly button: Outty!
Sleep: Well, I am sure I’m getting more now than when she’ll be here, but golly I could use a better nights rest. I will wake up to pee, and then my back hurts again. Really glad I’ve started to see Physical Therapists this week!
Best moment this week: The entire weekend was just so nice! It’s SO great to be home for a weekend without any commitments! We were able to hang out with some friends and their family at the first horse races Neal and I have ever been to! I was also SUPER crafty this weekend and made Braelyn a TON of cute skirts, hats and headbands as well as myself 2 nursing shawls out of the softest jersey fabric ever!
Hardest moment this week: Nothing really particular. I just have these moments of weakness where I get all pouty or grumpy and short tempered. They don’t last long though. It was pretty funny at one point…I was trying to find a place to put some paper towels and toilet paper I had stocked up on and was all ‘arghhh – pissy woman’ and Neal said, I’m not sure you can reach the top shelf to put those up with your tiny little T-Rex Arms (last week we brought the phrase Pregosaurus Rex into our house and now we both crack up when we say I’m being a real Pregosaurus Rex!
What I’m missing: At the horse races this weekend, I think a cold beer would have been nice.
Movement: I still feel her, which makes me happy! I am still just SO thankful she’s heads down!
Cravings: Milk and Mozzarella Sticks…and yes I would totally eat them together if the sticks ever made it back to the house…I’ve gotten Sonic Mozzarella Sticks TWO times this week – and I dip them in marinara AND honey mustard…and I’m totally obsessed!
Queasy or sick: Ehh the back pain is really annoying as the work day progresses. I also had CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY BAD cramping one morning this week. It was terrible. I thought walking the dogs would help, but at one point when I was far away from the house I had considered just sitting on the sidewalk until someone drove by and could take me home. This was triggered all by some umm..romantic times with Neal, sooo I think I’ll have to ask my Dr. if we need to lay off of that for a while…which would kinda suck since post pregnancy you don’t want to/can’t for a while as well…sigh…
Looking forward to: Braelyn’s arrival! And the arrival of our glider…I’m STILL waiting on that thing! My mom ordered it at least a month ago, she says it’s supposed to be here this week…I sure hope so! I hope they don’t put it BACK on backorder.
Strange Dreams: I don’t think I’m sleeping as well, so I don’t remember any dreams from this week.
