sorry for the blurriness:
How Far Along? 32 Weeks!! Just 8 (ish) weeks to go! 8 “months” down, 2 to go. This is bananas.
Symptoms: So, tired. So, so tired. And heartburn nonstop. I’m gulping antacids like it’s my job.
Total Weight Gain: 20 lbs. I dunno what’s happening. I lost 3 lbs. I was sick a few days (really bad cold, fever) so I’m attributing it to that. Hopefully I’ll get back to gaining like I’m supposed to.
Maternity Clothes: all day! And I’ve taken to stealing John’s T shirts as well.
Stretch Marks: Not yet, I wonder if I’ll make it through without them!
Sleep: It’s not so bad when I have my pillow fortress and no heartburn. I wake up twice a night to pee tho.
Food Cravings: well, I’ve moved from my old cravings to: Mango madness snapples, pasta w/ fresh tomatoes and capers, and yoplait whips. I LOVE YOPLAIT WHIPS!
Best Moment This Week: Getting new bras! I got sized and now that I’m wearing a properly fitting bra the sun is shining brighter, birds are singing, flowers are blooming and life is sweet! Seriously it feels like I lost 10 lbs of weight now that I’ve got on the right sized bra! I’ll have to go back before Embry’s born to get resized for nursing bras in case I grow more.
Movement: He’s always moving!! I feel like I know his schedule now.
Labor Signs: cramping stopped this week…I’ve been laying around a lot more, so that helps.
Belly Button In Or Out? Out
What I Miss: I miss stable emotions. I cried in frustration because I hate the toilet seat in our new apt. I also cried tears of joy because John bought cookie dough ice cream and surprised me. Seriously…I’m a head case.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Setting up Embry’s nursery and our doc appointment next week. I miss seeing Embry and can’t wait to “skype” with him.
Milestones: I am not sure I’ve hit any milestones…just excited to be 8 weeks away from meeting Mr. RTH.
Weekly Wisdom: Relaaaaaax
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
