How far along? 32 Weeks pregnant! Looong time no update! First week we were still out of town, second I was sick with a cold, third sick with a stomach bug and forth, we were out of town playing a gig! xD I am pleased to say that things have settled down and we aren't all on the verge of dying anymore lol! So here's a very overdue bump update! :D
Total weight gain/measurements: 169 lbs (+9) I had actually gotten up to about 172, but the stomach bug knocked me on my butt HARD at 30 weeks and I lost a bit of weight! I've gained all but three pounds back since though!
Maternity clothes: Maternity or super stretchy clothes! I don't have a whole lot of clothes that fit me now. I got some maternity shorts and those have been amazing! The shorts I wore with my other pregnancies absolutely do not fit in the waist with this pregnancy due to how low this dude is!
Stretch marks? No new ones
Sleep: It really depends. Some nights are decent and others I'm up and down all night with acid reflux and general discomfort. Not to mention having to get up to pee constantly!
Best moment this week: Vincent playing his tee ball games this week! He is improving with every game he plays and it is so cool to watch!!
Miss anything?: Sleeping on my stomach!! There have been so many nights I've rolled onto my stomach half asleep and he will kick me SO hard. Like MOM. GET OFF. YOU'RE SQUISHING ME.
Movement: Constantly! He is a very active baby. :)
Food cravings: Haven't had much of an appetite this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I've been getting super queasy off and on since that stomach bug!! It's been difficult for me to recover from. Thankfully my midwife was able to prescribe me some zofran, so I've been taking that as needed and still have probably 4 or so left. I notice that I struggle with nausea the most on days following a really crappy night's sleep.
Labor signs: Lots of braxton hicks, but I haven't had any more episodes of them coming non stop like regular contractions - thank goodness! Looking back, I was so incredibly stressed, sleep deprived and overwhelmed that week, I think that was my body's way of saying hey. You need to take care of yourself.
Symptoms: Fatigue, nausea and largeness hahaha!!
Belly button in or out? Depending on my position, it's either in or the top is out! The top is always out when I'm standing, but only sometimes out when I am sitting in a reclined position.
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been SO much happier these past few weeks and stress has been considerably lower. I'm finally at a point where I'm enjoying pregnancy and life more in general! The past 6 months have been a complete whirlwind and I am so glad that things have gotten so much better!
Looking forward to: Vincent's end of the year celebration at the park this week!
