How Far Along? 33 Weeks!! Just 7 (ish) weeks to go!
Symptoms: Serious backaches 🙁
Total Weight Gain: 23 lbs. gaining like I’m supposed to again!
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: still obsessed w/ mango snapples and yoplait whips…and…french fries.
Best Moment This Week: Well this isn’t going to sound like good news, but it really is. I got canned! My job was phased out and I was given a severance package that covers me for 6 months. At first it was an ego blow and I was pissed, but I spoke to John who had me looking at things in a great way. We decided I’ll stay home with RTH until the new year!! I get to be an SAHM!
Movement: He’s always moving!! I feel like I know his schedule now.
Labor Signs: none really, I felt some really sharp jabs in my lower uterus, and I’m having braxton hicks, but otherwise none.
Belly Button In Or Out? Out
What I Miss: I miss being able to do simple things without getting winded. I miss Riesling.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Still looking forward to setting up RTH’s nursery, and skyping with him on Thursday, maternity pics this week and his baby shower on the weekend.
Milestones: I am not sure I’ve hit any milestones…just excited to be 7 weeks away from meeting Mr. RTH.
Weekly Wisdom: Work in bursts. Rest as much as possible.
Thoughts: I am always tired, I cannot believe how quickly I get tuckered out these days. I can’t even get through a trip to target without needing to take a nap! I didn’t realize how taxing this trimester would be.
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
