Weight Gain | Clocking in at 164, bringing the total surplus to +34.
Belly Button | It looks so weird. At least, what I can see of it. It’s kind of on the “underside” of my belly and because Mabel is hanging out lowwww, I only see the very tiny top portion.
Stretch Marks | I noticed a few new ones on my left side before hopping in the shower this week. Womp womp. Same place as before(love handle region) so hopefully they’ll just blend in with my previous additions….but we’ll see.
I had a dream I had one huge one erupt like, in the place of linea nigra(which I’ve never had??) from the top to the bottom of my stomach. So apparently I’ve been thinking about it.
Wedding Rings | Off! I can’t believe it! I never had to do that with Abigail 🙁 But I had one day where I noticed they were super snug and I had a hard time slipping them off so I decided it was time. The swelling in my hands and feet haven’t really gone down at all since that day either, so I guess they’re off for good.
Symptoms | Peeing, cramping, whenever I get a braxton hick-which, I never even notice them, but I’ve started to because it makes my breathing and heart rate increase a bit. Go body! Practice away for the real deal.
Usually nothing goes in this category, just things that have sounded good to me during the week. But, this one, this qualifies. I woke up thinking about it and couldn’t stop thinking about it and made a superfluous run to the bank just so that I could drive through “Old McDonalds” on the way home. My fry box is empty because I inhaled them at the speed of light. It seriously tasted so, so, so good and now I haven’t thought about it since. Craving satisfied.
Size Of Baby | A head of romaine lettuce(lol)
Almost 6 pounds and 18.5 inches!
Movement | She has been hanging out with her feet on my right side always, but on Sunday morning I woke up and her feet were over on the left! WHAT CHILD. Totally threw me for a loop. I took a nap that afternoon and when I woke up her feet were back on the right side.
I like to think she realized the error of her ways and has now settled in officially for the long haul.
Sleep | Good good good. Peeing, dreams, but still comfy.
Nursery | Y’all we are ALMOST DONE! This weekend I do believe it will be finished. The crib only needs some touch up and assembly, a few things need to be hung up on her walls, and we still need to convert her chair to a rocker, but that IS IT!
Can’t Wait For | May! It’s baby month! (Probably)
