How far along? 31 weeks. On our baby registry at Target, the weeks/months are broken into days: 63 days. Wowie. In the grand scheme of things, though, there are a lot of great things happening in the 9 weeks before the baby is born. Springtime is the first thing that comes to mind...
Total weight gain? same ol', same ol'.
Maternity clothes: I haven't purchased anything new, I figure with 9 weeks left (and at a time when I will be expanding, A LOT), what's the point of buying anything new? So I have been digging through my closet for clothes that were larger on me pre-pregnancy that might look good on me now. So far I have had success.
Sleep: Pretty good. I had a busy work week last week, so I was tired at night. I would come home and sew diapers for a few hours and then collapse into bed from exhaustion (I haven't even watched any netflix). I only get up once a night to pee, which isn't bad, although I tend to lay in bed for some time afterwards thinking about everything that needs to be done and wondering if getting up at that time (usually 2 or 3am) would be too early.
|this is way more symmetrical in person, promise.|
Miss anything? My agility.
Movement? This should be renamed "Which body part was that?". When I wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, the baby usually gets up with me and rolls around in my belly until I fall asleep again. I am not entirely sure what I am feeling in there, but it is usually smooth and hard, so it may be her back or bottom. Of course, it could be her head, but I really hope that she is head down already.
Food cravings? carbohydrates and unhealthy food. On Wednesday we ordered take out at work and I ordered a loaded cheeseburger with small fries. I ATE EVERYTHING. And proceeded to have cramps and indigestion all day. I couldn't even eat dinner, too full. I need to remember to eat smaller portions..., my stomach does not have enough room for those large meals anymore :(.
Anything make you queasy or sick? nope
Symptoms: Squirmy belly, more Braxton Hicks, fatigue, hunger (large appetite, small stomach), mood swings. Fun stuff!
Exercise: Not as much as I would like, but I managed to get out on some hikes with Carlie this weekend. I need to pick up the yoga again, though.
Mood: All over the place. I think that I am basically mellow most of the time, but if something goes wrong, I tend to overreact.
Looking forward to? My next meal. And getting the baby's room complete so that I can show you all!
