How Far Along? 34 Weeks!! Just 6 (ish) weeks to go!
Symptoms: Backaches, Heartburn like crazy, Insane emotions
Total Weight Gain: 26 lbs!! It’s surreal seeing these numbers on the scale.
Maternity Clothes: Now that I’m home I live in John’s old scrubs and T shirts but wear my cute maternity clothes when I leave the house.
Stretch Marks: Not yet, fingers crossed. But today I learned that you can get them post-baby once you’re shrinking back down to size 🙁
Sleep: It’s starting to get worse and worse.
Food Cravings: pancakes, yoplait whips, ice cream, mango anything, cereal all day, chex mix, mmm
Best Moment This Week: Having Embry’s baby shower and getting surprised by my 2 aunts from Florida who I totally didn’t expect to see!
Movement: He’s moving some, less punching, more stretching.
Labor Signs: The braxton hicks contractions every now and then, but nothing else.
Belly Button In Or Out? Out, and sometimes it’s firm and sometimes it’s mashable…so weird.
What I Miss: I miss sleeping through the night. I guess I’m going to miss that for a LONG time. I also miss not feeling like a humongous slow aminal. (yes, aminal)
What I Am Looking Forward To: Still haven’t taken my maternity pics. I’ll try to get on that. I’m looking forward to getting Embry’s room set up now that John has painted and is starting to put things together.
Milestones: I made it through the shower alive. 😉 Started on my birth plan too!
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep as much as you can. Don’t feel guilty for going slow.
Thoughts: I am not a fan of the third trimester. I’m so tired, unwieldy, and so emotional. And I’m SO hungry all the time. My belly feels like it’s going to burst but I’ll still want more and more food. I had the best time washing all of Embry’s clothes. Laundry will never be as fun as it was yesterday, looking at all the teeny tiny items he received. I had a breakdown over some newborn socks. ::sigh::
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
