Weight Gain | +4 more this month clocking in at +22 total so far. Thankfully it seems my double double addiction didn’t inflict too much damage on me. Whew 😉
Belly Button & Stretch Marks |
The belly button is hanging in there and still an innie! As far as stretch marks go, I don’t *think* I have any new ones. I wasn’t lucky enough to escape entirely from stretch marks with Abigail. They showed up a little bit on my love handles and it appears that maybe a few new ones have joined the party in the same spot? But, it’s really hard to tell whether they are old ones or new ones. As long as they don’t take over everything I can probably handle it okay :p
Symptoms | Peeing, Braxton Hicks, and finally perhaps a bit of 3rd trimester lethargy? I’ve been more tired in the mornings, contemplating naps in the afternoon, or needing to lay down for a bit when Jim gets home from work. My body just feels kind of tapped out at that point and in need of a rest. Nothing too crazy but I am feeling my body/weight/baby a bit more than I was.
Size Of Baby | Squash! Acorn or butternut….different sites have different squash opinions apparently.
15-17 inches and 2.5-3.8 pounds!
Movement | Well in continuing with my belief that the little miss can read my thoughts(or maybe she reads my blog?) after I bragged last week that she moves so much I haven’t even had a chance to worry about her, she decided to take a day to be super lazy and scare me. It was the day after my glucose test so maybe that had something to do with it? She was still moving…occasionally, but just barely. I kept a close eye on it and tried laying down and doing all the things you’re supposed to and she just didn’t really respond much. Just….lazy. Fortunately, by the next morning things were back in business and I haven’t had to worry about her since 🙂 She’s kicking and rolling me to death as I type this so all is well.
Clothing | Still fitting in all of my maternity things! I’m enjoying a bit of warmer weather to be able to break out the dresses and maxi skirts a bit, plus my new Toms ballet flats! They’re adorable and super comfy!
Seriously, I don’t even need to be crafty because I’ve made good enough friends who can be crafty for me. All four items made me cry, but the tree painting? With the 4 colored birds and the 8 little transparent birds all over the tree made me cry buckets. I mean. I’m having way too much fun coming up with the places to put Mabel’s new art all over her room.
So, we finally got to the heap of mess in the middle of Mabel’s room! Jim finished building her closet, I got all of her clothes and things organized, we cleared out the room entirely and vacuumed and then rolled out her rug!! Only to discover that it was about an inch too long to unroll completely.
We tried the other way and diagonally, neither of which worked either. I didn’t have my receipt(we’ve had this rug for forever up in the attic) but thankfully Target still took it back and gave us cash back! So, now I need to decide if I want another rug(I think I do because that carpet……bleh) and if so, what do I want?
Anyway, until then, we’ve got only Mabel things in her room and it’s really starting to come together! Hopefully soon we can get crib painted and set up and things hung up on her walls. Exciting!
Best Part Of The Week | Such a great Dr.’s appointment!! I really felt awesome leaving there and now, we’re down to every two week appointments. Ah!
