Wow, I’m really behind! I’ve been out of town since Wednesday with very little computer access so I’m trying to catch up. In the meantime, here’s my belated roll call:
How far along: 28 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure, I’ve stopped checking/keeping track. As long as my doctor isn’t concerned, I’m not.
Stretch marks: Not yet!
Maternity clothes: Definitely! I have a couple pairs each of full-panel jeans and cords, a couple tunics/leggings and lots of t-shirts/tank tops. Other than that, I’ve been making due with regular cardigans and the few pre-preg sweaters that are still long enough to cover my belly! Fortunately my work has a pretty relaxed dress code.
Sleep: Hit and miss. My ribs/back have been quite sore lately, so that makes sleep more difficult.
Food cravings or aversions: None of either.
Movement: Tons…he’s a very active one! Lately he especially likes to beat up on my right-side ribs.
Belly button in/out: Still pretty much flat.
Diet: I definitely have a hearty appetite, but I’m not really eating too differently from before. I’d like to think that I’m a pretty healthy eater! I have less of a sweet tooth now than pre-pregnancy, which is a little weird! And usually when I go into the kitchen for a snack, the thing that appeals to me most is raw veggies! Apparently I’m incubating a health nut…
What I’m loving: That I’m in my third trimester now, we’ve got a start on the nursery, how excited our friends and family are, how active my little guy is!
What I’m not loving: Sore back and ribs, especially after a long drive today! Plus the fact that both my car and DH’s needed work in the past few weeks, so we need to delay some of our baby purchases (dresser mainly) since money’s tighter at the moment!
What I miss: The only thing I can think of is sushi (esp. spicy tuna)! But I went out for vegetarian/cooked sushi with Mother-In-Law this week which helped!
Favourite moment this week: DH absentmindedly reaching over to rub my belly while we were driving today…it’s not something he generally does so I found it really cute!
What number thread do you think we will be on come June 1st?!: 15!
