These gray leggings were a terrible decision. They had way WAY less stretch in them than the last time I’d worn them. I’m not sure how that happened :p
Weight Gain | Up 3 more. Blah! +37
Symptoms | Lots of peeing, lots of braxton hicks, lots of waddling, lots of groans and moans and afternoon naps.
Nesting, of course.
I’m not doing any cervical checks before labor, but when my Dr. measured me yesterday she said, “feeling pressure?” and I was like “uh, look at how LOW she is!” and she was like, “yeah, you’re measuring like her head is engaged.” So, waddling and peeing until she is here I guess!
Cravings | No cravings this week but I could have shed a tear over not getting to have a margarita on cinco de mayo. I looked up virgin margarita recipes but they were all super LAME so I passed on them. Only a few more weeks until a real one is MINE!
Size Of Baby | Swiss chard
19 inches and 6.3 pounds!
Movement | Oh always. Girlfriend makes her presence known quite frequently. Alien belly and baby for sure. Sometimes I think she’s trying to escape from my belly button alien style,
Sleep | Good but I’ve upped the bathroom trips to about 3-4 times a night. I also still can not stop sleeping on my back! I’ve fought it my entire pregnancy. I start on my side and still always wake up on my back. Sigh. Luckily Mabel is always moving around in there so I don’t worry about her too much- and now I’m waking up frequently enough that I just go back onto my side after I’ve gone to the bathroom.
Clothing | So after my long bra quest, my mom happened to send me a few bras from Target that she saw and thought I might like. Hello, comfort! I want to writhe around in how comfy they are. Usually softer bras are NOT my cup of tea because they make boobs look super weird, but somehow these ones don’t do that. I’ve been wearing them non stop and know they’ll be perfect once Mabel is here.
I’ve also stocked up on Gilligan & O’Malley nursing tanks! They were on sale online and I combined them with my registry discount and ebates and my red card! Not a bad dealio at all.
Nursery | It’s done!!
Purchases | I got the last few baby things that I was wanting to pick up:
Lanolin, a sound machine, a baby bather….oh and that one big thing- her car seat!!
Can’t Wait For |
I’ve been soaking up all of the special one on one time with Miss Abigail of course, but we are both so excited for Mabel to join our Saturday morning snuggles!
