Weight Gain | Up a few more pounds….clocking in at +28 so far. Eep. She’s measuring right on track though, so that is perfect!
Symptoms | No more leg cramps since starting the extra vitamin D. Mostly just tons of peeing, having to do like a three point turn just to roll over, and starting to swell. The inner bone of my ankle has said farewell to me and I might have to put my wedding rings away soon. Which stinks! I never had to do that with Abigail- but perhaps that is one of the differences between a summer vs. fall baby?
Cravings | Someone posted a picture of a coffee frappuccino on social media last week and I could not stop thinking about how good it looked! So the next time Abigail and I were out I had to grab a Caffe Vanilla Frappuccino. Y’all. The level with how good it tasted to me….for sure a pregnancy thing because I never enjoy anything that much lol!
Size Of Baby | A pineapple!
17 inches and 4+ pounds!
Movement | Plenty! And she has gotten big enough that sometimes she stretches out and that weird oblong thing happens with my stomach where I swear it looks like a trapezoid or something. Heaven knows what she is doing in there but it sure looks crazy out here!
Sleep | Best sleep ever!
Purchases | A couple Instagram bow shops that I’ve had my eye on recently just reopened this week with their new spring lines and it’s safe to say that the Mabes is pretty well stocked on newborn bows. Now I can just buy her bigger size headbands :p We also bought the chair for her nursery(as seen in glamorous photo above) and it is obviously fabulous!
I also had my appointment with my naturopath and she got me set up on a few things to last through the rest of pregnancy- a probiotic, a prenatal with extra iron, and red raspberry tea(any tips for drinking this, mamas?)
Nursery | The chair isn’t “done” yet but it is assembled and in her room, the curtains are hanging, and I got a few more lanterns to put up. It’s really coming together and so super close to being done!
Best Part Of The Week | We had a GREAT check up this week. I had a nice long chat with my OB about my “crunchy” plans for natural delivery + all of the things I want to delay/refuse for Mabel. She was super supportive and kind about all of my ideas and I am feeling so much better about achieving the birth experience that I’m hoping for.
I have plans to write them all out for y’all, possibly next week? So stay tuned for that 🙂
