Let's get right to it this week shall we? Definitely starting to look pregnant!
Yes, I have a black eye. We'll get to that in a minute. ;)
Here's a comparison shot from last week. She is definitely growing faster and faster. Eek!
Next appointment: Not until the 24th of July. But after that they are every 2 weeks! Can't believe it's that time already! And I have to go have my glucose done a few days before my appointment. Hoping I don't have to do the long one!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Another pound gained so right on track! Almost to pre-preggo weight, which is good. I just kept feeling like I wasn't healthy enough for her. At least now I know I'm almost back to where I was!
Exercise: Getting my walks in on the days it doesn't rain or what I know we have a decent sized window. And with all the stuff to get done around the house and the beautiful weather, I am MUCH more active than I was when we found out we were preggo. ;)
Maternity Clothes: I caved. Last Friday I wore my first pair of maternity shorts. I didn't have to but I tried on 2 pairs of normal shorts (ones I hadn't tried yet this year) and they were both too tight. The 2 pairs I know still fit me were in the wash, so instead of trying on more clothes...I just broke out the maternity ones! And they are so comfy so I'm glad I did. ;) Worn them a couple times since then too. Probably should invest in another pair since the pants I wore yesterday (that fit on my trip to Michigan last week) didn't want to button yesterday. haha.
Sleep: Sleep was actually going pretty well...until this happened:
I may have tripped going up the steps leaving work on Monday. Thank goodness, I didn't hit my belly! But my face, shoulder, and knee are all scraped up and sore. I usually sleep on that side and its just been unbearable. Between the scrapes and my now black eye, I just can't get comfortable. But every night has been getting better so hopefully my sleeplessness won't last too much longer.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Usually, I just see something and feel like I need it. But I haven't actually had any real cravings.
Movement: Pretty consistent now. If I'm not moving, she is. It is SO fun!
What I Miss: Me not being clumsy. Oh wait...that me never existed. Ha!
What I'm Loving: I think we've agreed on a name. But haven't decided on spelling, which makes me feel like the name isn't 100%. And I keep on suggesting other names...but I think this one is going to stick. However, we are going to keep it a secret until she decides to make an appearance. :)
What I'm Looking Forward To: Nothing really baby related happening any time soon. Hoping to go kayaking over the 4th!
Best Moment This Week: Probably our ultrasound. She was still a little uncooperative and kept kicking the doppler thingy. But they got what they hadn't before and everything looks good, so no more peeks at Little Miss. :(
Milestones: Her face is pretty much fully formed. She has eyebrows, hair, the works! And only 4 more weeks until my 3rd trimester! Yikes!
