How Far Along? 25 Weeks 2days! 15 (ish) weeks to go!
Symptoms: Crying for everything, this pelvic pain is intensifying, I feel like I walk like I just got off of a horse. I really hope I don’ t look like that. I’m resisting the urge to grab my crotch with both hands and hold it up as I walk. 🙁
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 14 lbs gained so far!! Little man is about 13.5 inches and weighing about a pound and a half!
Maternity Clothes: Ummm….I know I was supposed to have a no spend month….but I went on motherhood maternity’s website (i dont know how i got there) and they were having a BOGO sale on clearance items….so I got 6 shirts, 3 jeans, and 2 sweaters….all for $92 bucks!! (plus free shipping w/ a coupon code, AND 3% cash back from Mr. Rebates!! So really $89 bucks! ) 11 pieces for under a hundo…that’s not bad!
Stretch Marks: Not yet, still fighting stretchmarks as best I can. Using my lotions and potions to lube up real good each day.
Sleep: I’m not sleeping well at all. Toss turn, turn toss. ::sigh::
Food Cravings: Spicy, flavorful stuff, Peanut butter and jelly, huge glasses of Milk and OJ, pad thai w/ lots of limes, everything bagels with cream cheese and tomatoes….yeah…nothing’s changed there.
Best Moment This Week: The glucose test not being as bad as I expected. It was like flat orange soda….but extra sweet. Granted I almost barfed it back up….but that’s only cuz I chugged it. Also, seeing him on the monitor was great again. He’s so big now! We told John’s niece and nephews (7 y/o and 4y/o twins) about the baby it Aunt Danielle’s belly. They were real cute about it. “You’re big!” “Why are you big?” “How’s he going to get out?” “Can he breathe?” “Will he be our friend?” “Can he talk?” “What is he saying in there?” So we had a conference call with my belly. And their little baby cousin answered all their questions….of course…I had to translate from babytalk to English for them. It was cute.
Movement: My doc said he’s supposed to be moving twice a day….this kid is an overachiever. OK, so, how about I woke up one day from his movement, but thought it was an earthquake!
I shoot up out of sleep, and look around for anything shaking and about to fall.
Me: John wake up we’re having an earthquake
John: No we’re not, go to sleep
Me: (shaking john) We just had one, it’s over. I felt the tremors!
John: We definitely did not have an earthquake!
Me: Well what was all that shaking then?
John: Your imagination!
Me & John: Die Laughing
John: Go to bed
……fast forward to Saturday morning I’m half awake and, I felt another earthquake….but this one was longer….it was the freaking boy in my belly!!! I’ve never felt anything like it…he was shaking me up from the inside!! It was so crazy.
Labor Signs: none!
Belly Button In Or Out? 1/2 out…I think it’s going to stay like this until my next belly growth spurt.
What I Miss: My goddamn pelvis feeling normal, Eating w/o heartburn. Feeling light and agile. Living a life without aches and pains. The ability to move quickly.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Meeting our doula. Touring the hospital. Hitting 7 months and 3rd trimester.
Milestones: 6 months!! Sharing the pregnancy w/ John’s sister and her cute kids.
Weekly Wisdom: I got none this week lol
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
