Symptoms | Looking huge. Peeing all the time. I’ve noticed that my ankles are just now starting to swell a little bit. Not a ton but enough that I noticed my ankle bone isn’t quite as prominent as it usually is. I had my first middle of the night leg cramp this week and promptly ordered some Vitamin D supplements to hopefully keep that from happening ever again. Oh my word it was HORRIBLE!
So this was my dinner one night.
We were fixing leftovers and all that I really wanted was a huge helping of broccoli.
I’ve also been having a huge bowl of oatmeal with berries and almonds mixed in every morning and it is SO good.
Size Of Baby |
Jicama(??) or a squash!
3.75 lbs and 16.5 inches!
Plenty. I’ve felt some sharp jabs- elbows and feet? I think? Which I love. I love that she is getting big enough to be able to tell what is what. She’s still head down and has been for a long time, which is great!
Other than the epic leg cramp and the occasional trip to the bathroom, I’m sleeping awesome. This morning I woke up and literally had not budged an inch from the time I fell asleep.
I went on a crunchy birthing book binge this week. With only 8 weeks to go I know that I need to refresh and prepare myself for labor and delivery so I ordered:
Ina May’s Guide To Childbirth (I borrowed this from a friend last time and loved it, so I decided to just get my own copy)
and I purchased “The Business Of Being Born” to watch- which I did.
I’ll do an entire post sometime with my “birth plan”, but probably not until I’ve given all of these a read and reread 🙂
A little progress has been made! Her room is clean, her closet is ready, one wall is “finished”, her curtains came in and will be hung tonight, and we hung up her lanterns(I still need to get another one or two).
I think the biggest thing is just painting the crib and getting it set up in her room. That will make a HUGE difference in how “finished” the room feels.
Can’t Wait For | Celebrating Easter this weekend with family and hopefully sneaking over to IKEA to grab a chair for Mabel’s room 🙂 🙂 (and you know some other things too- #DontTellJim)
