So here we are! Well past the halfway mark and just a few days away from viability(a huge wave of relief comes with that!)
Currently in that blissful stage where I’m no longer sick at all and not as big as a house(well…it feels like that, but somehow I’m going to manage to still get even bigger and bigger before all is said and done!) and feeling him in there all throughout the day(the best!)
For posterity’s sake, and my rapidly diminishing by the day memory….here are some stats from this week!
Symptoms: Not too much to mention here! I am still sleepy a lot, I just overall feel big and poofy, my skin is still crazy dry, and I’m peeing all of the time(perhaps why my skin is dry?? lol) but really, no complaints.
Except for the weight gain- I could complain about that. I weighed in yesterday and I never know which weight to go with from their crazy up and down scale. The weight that is up when I first step on? When it fluctuates? When it stops? But then after it stops it changes again? I don’t know. I weighed myself on our home scale and added 3lb to it because that seems to be fairly accurate to my dr’s scale at her old office…which then brings me to 156 lb, which is +16 since the start.
Body Image: You know what you shouldn’t have to do at 6 months pregnant? Go swimsuit shopping. That is just cruel and unusual punishment. I’ve been fortunate to find a one piece and a two piece that should get me through public appearances at the pool this summer….still ain’t pretty though. woof.
Cravings: Hmm, nothing too specific? I’m pretty much back to eating regularly, which I’m so glad for!
Oh yeah! I went to Sam’s Club by myself for the first time last week I think it was? And I came home with five(yeah….five) different kinds of cheeses. LOL. Jim was like….um?
Size Of Baby: Large mango! 11 inches and over a pound! The app says “you MAY be able to see baby squirm under you clothes” um…that’s going to be a mega definitely there babycenter app.
Movement: Plenty of that! Jim feels him every night and Abigail has gotten in on it a few times now too. I can’t wait for my Mom to visit soon and get to feel him too!
Sleep: Y’alllllll I finally bought the snoogle. WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS SOONER. GAME CHANGER.
Clothing: I’ve been wearing out this Ingrid & Isabel tank dress…..super regretting only getting one. I want every color! I snagged a similar tank dress from Old Navy, but it’s a totally different fabric. I think I’ll wear them both absolutely OUT this summer! I also got some new shorts because ONE pair was just not cutting it, lol. These bermudas are great, along with these shorties(I’m wearing them right now!)
Gender: Baby boy Finn (No Middle Name Because We Can’t Agree) Spena!
Looking Forward To: A weekend in Kansas City! Jim and I are going to take a mini baby moon :p and leave the girls with his parents Friday to sneak away for a night….and maybe an Ikea stop for baby boy nursery things the next day! Should be fun!
And just for fun, here is Mabel’s week 23 update!
