April 23, 2015
Feeling good but looking huge. As the kindly man stated in the lobby at my Dr.’s appointment yesterday, “You look like you’re ready to burst!” (Guys, it finally happened! No one has ever commented to me about my pregnancies before. I guess I wasn’t conjuring up enough of my resting you know what face to deter it)
Weight Gain | So, I went and hit my 40 week weight with Abigail at 35 weeks with Mabel. Oh well. I’m going to be dieting soon enough(which will totally stink) so I’m just going to enjoy my food while I still can.
Clocking in at 161, +31 pounds so far.
Belly Button | Flat but in!
Wedding Rings | Still on! The swelling that I started noticing hasn’t changed at all so as long as it hangs steady where it’s at, we should be good to go!
Symptoms | So many bathroom trips, fatigue, slight swelling, increased appetite. Last weekend while Jim and Abigail were camping I woke up with another of the worst leg cramps of my life. It was awful and my calf still hurt for days afterwards. Ugh, they are so terrible!
Cravings | Even though I’ve been chugging water like a crazy person, I think Mabel is trying to revert me back to my morning sickness days because ice cold coke sounds SUPER GOOD. I’m super particular about how I enjoy it and we don’t keep it in the house, so it’s few and far between, but when I have indulged in it- mercy. Tastes fab.
Size Of Baby | Honeydew Melon
18 inches and 5.25 pounds!
Movement | Lots! I asked my Dr. yesterday if the spot poking out on my right side was feet, so she felt and laughed and said “oh yeah, those are definitely feet!” and she showed me where her head, back, bottom, and feet are.
Sleep | Really good but I’ve picked up a few extra trips to the bathroom per night. She is super duper low so the bathroom trips are basically nonstop.
Clothing | This weekend while Jim and Abigail were gone I went to Motherhood Maternity to try and get set up with my nursing bras that I’ll be needing and it was basically a total bust(no pun intended heh). I tried on like 25 bras and still couldn’t find a size that fit well in both the cup and band. So, I ended up just buying two $1.50 bra extenders for the bras I already have(recently discovered while nesting/organizing a dresser woop!) but were too small and then I think I’ll just get stocked up on some Target nursing tanks because I really loved those last time.
Nursing moms- any nursing bra recommendations for me? I was really hoping to get nailed down on a size so that I could just order anywhere but that didn’t happen.
Nursery | A few portions of the crib have a coat of paint on them and it looks SO good. I was a little worried about coral- that maybe it would be too red? But it isn’t at all.
Can’t Wait For | Pinterest party this Saturday that is baby themed for myself and a friend from church who is 3 weeks ahead of me. It should be fun!
We’re also doing a garage sale Saturday morning and my nesty pregnant self can’t wait to clear out tons of stuff from our garage and attic….and also have a bit more spending money 😉 Just what Jim had in mind I’m sure!
