- Wedding: June 2013
I’m late joining the new thread, so here’s my delayed roll call!
How far along: nearly 31 weeks (tomorrow!)
Total weight gain/loss: I was up 22 lbs at my doctor’s appointment last week, so I’m guessing between 23 and 24 now? I honestly have stopped weighing myself between appointments. Seeing those numbers continue to go up is just too depressing.
Stretch marks: nope!
Maternity clothes: yep! Can still fit into a couple of formerly loose non-maternity pants and tunics, but am wearing more and more maternity clothes now. Especially loving maxi skirts and dresses as well as long cardigans over everything (to hide my growing rear end).
Sleep: Horrible. This babies a night time partier. Also, I’ve been getting a lot of random leg spasms at night that make it hard to fall asleep and the belly is just getting more and more uncomfortable.
Food cravings or aversions: Developed an aversion to chicken in the last few weeks. Occassional sweet or salty cravings, but it seems like my all-food-all-the-time appetite from the 2nd trimester has really gone done once I hit the 3rd tri.
Movement: Tons. Rolls, punches, kicks, pokes. This little boy likes to move! Lately he’s been hiccuping a lot, too. Like at least once a day for the past week.
Belly button in/out: Flat. I know it’s going to pop very soon.
Diet: Pretty similar to how I ate pre-pregnancy (minus the caffeine, raw fish, etc.). Relatively healthy (fruits, veggies, whole grains), but I still eat sweets when I’m craving them. I just try not to go crazy with it.
What I’m loving: Realizing how soon this baby will be joining us. We’re getting into 2 month range now! And only 1.5 if he comes a little early! Can’t wait.
What I’m not loving: Not having a named picked out. Considering the above realization, I’m freaking out. Also, we still have more to research (birth plans, breast feeding, diapers, etc) and a few more things to buy for the baby (dresser and rocker).
What I miss: My old waistline and thinner thighs. My old wardrobe. Being able to get off the couch gracefully…
Favourite moment this week: Definitely our shower last weekend. Just all of the love and support we got from our friends and family there as well as having my mom in town for it and letting her feel the baby kick.
What number thread do you think we will be on come June 1st?!: 14?
