|hehe. Definitely growing.|
|On the right is just last week! Definite difference!!|
|Not even sure what I was saying but I'm sure it wasn't very nice. ;)|
This week, baby is the size of a: Small head of cabbage! Cabbage Patch! ;)
Next appointment: Next week! I think Mom is coming with me this time to meet the doc she hasn't met yet. I think she will get a kick out of Dr. Narcisse. ;)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Slowly but surely. Only a couple of pounds up from my pre-preggo weight. But total I've gained almost 13 lbs since I started gaining...which really wasn't all that long ago. Really trying to pack on the protein because I'm not getting enough. Eggs for lunch, milk when I remember, and protein shakes on occasion.
Exercise: Squats as much as I can and sitting tailor style as often as I remember. Also pelvic rocking before bed....soon to be 3 or 4 times a day. And I really need to get Hubby to help me with the Butterfly exercise. All from the Bradley method, but if it helps, I'm doing it! ;)
Maternity Clothes: Pretty much everyday for bottoms. If it isn't maternity, it isn't comfortable. But tops aren't necessary yet. I just have a few that are too short these days. ;)
Sleep: Pretty good. Got a body pillow just the other day and it does seem to help. Just takes up space in the bed and I hate having to move it to get up and down to go use the bathroom...which is multiple times a night. lol.
Food Cravings/Aversions: None.
Movement: She is pretty crazy in there. Hubby loves when he can find where she is at and get her to move - like playing hide and seek. ;)
What I Miss: Being able to stand for longs periods of time without my feet and legs aching horribly. :P
What I'm Loving: All that movement. Seriously. It is the neatest thing!
What I'm Looking Forward To: Preparing more for delivery. We are reading and practicing and trying to be as ready as we can be (which won't be much in the end I'm sure). But I enjoy learning more techniques to assist in the labor process!
Best Moment This Week: Folding all of her clothes. It just makes me more and more excited!
Milestones: She is almost to her birth length. Crazy right!?!
Yeah, that to do list is kind of working. lol. The ceiling in our room should be complete tonight after the guys put up the trim. Then I just need to patch some paint and we can move back into our bedroom! No more studio apartment living for us! ;) But I do have to get the boards painted for Baby Girl's room so that can be finished. Hopefully starting that process tonight. I need to get some of our decorations up to make space for her stuff too. As well as all of my parents stuff...but that's a story for a different post. :)
