How far along are you? 34 weeks. We have 6 weeks left and eeeeeeeeeeeee we are excited!
How I’m feeling: Oh boy are my mood swings bad. One minute I’m crying over Annabelle’s adorably tiny clothes, the next minute I’m meaner than a snake for absolutely no reason.
Total weight gain: According to the scale at the gym, I don’t think I’ve gained 1 lb in the past 3 weeks! So total: 25 by me, 19 by doctor.
Cool baby facts: Her central nervous system and lungs are maturing. Things are getting a little tight in there now that Annabelle is around 4 3/4 lbs and 18 inches long. She is learning to memorize familiar sounds (most likely her Momma chewing ice and talking to the cat).
How big is baby? Annabelle is the size of a cantelope.
Sleep: It just doesn’t get better – only worse! Less sleep and more uncomfortable every night.
Maternity Clothes: I’ve been loving that some of my most favorite dresses fit like tunics on my pregnant self.
Best moment this week: Annabelle’s 3d/4d ultrasound last weekend was a tad disappointing since our little girl had her face pushed against the placenta. HOWEVER, seeing her chubby cheeks and cute little nose was incredible.
Movement: I’ve started paying attention to the frequency of her movements. They are definitely less jerky little pokes and more slow, hard stretches. The ultrasound tech says that she seems to be pretty squished in there.
Food cravings: Still ice.
Food aversions: Nothing
Belly button in or out: It’s out – sorta flat.
What I miss: Sh’Bam and Body Pump! My heels hurt so bad that I haven’t been able to go to the gym for two weeks. Today I went to Zumba and made it through 30 minutes of class.
What I’m looking forward to: Hanging an amazing piece of artwork in Annabelle’s nursery, putting up floating shelves, and for the baby bag to arrive from PBK.
