How far along? Week 28
How much weight have you gained? I think I'm up to 20 whole pounds!
Any cravings? Cottage cheese.
Also, we went grocery shopping last night and I went impulse shopping for sure! Peanut butter crackers, onion dip, edamame. Everything snacky was looking really good! The donuts looked absolutely heavenly, but I resisted because I was going in this morning for my glucose test (no results yet).
What are you wearing? Mostly the same things I have been wearing. We were supposed to wear our work polos today, and mine barely goes past my belly button! I had to wear an undershirt of the same color to try to keep it from being super weird looking.
How are you feeling? Symptoms? I've been feeling good still, minus some heart flutters earlier in the week that were a little concerning. I talked with my doctor and they are not worried about it at this point. It's pretty normal with all this additional blood I'm pumping through my body.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Belly button in or out? Still just in a state of limbo.
Sleep? I'm sleeping pretty well still. Norbert was sick this weekend so he gave me some practice waking up to take care of/clean up after him in the middle of the night.
Best moment this week: Little lady got her first hiccups this week! Twice! and it made me really happy!
Worst moment this week: Tyler threw out his back on Saturday morning. We were getting started on what was going to be a pretty productive day, but as he was cleaning up the leaves in front he was suddenly in a lot of pain. He could barely walk the rest of the day. I still got a lot of cleaning done, but the rest of our weekend was not very productive.
Miss anything? I'm missing being able to lift things and carry things as easily as I used to. Using ladders, being allowed to paint. So many things are frowned upon while pregnant. I feel pretty lame and limited in what I can do to get things ready around here.
Movement? We are at a point where she still kicks a lot, but I can feel her more subtle movements too. Also, it's pretty crazy but we can gently press on my belly and feel her in there more frequently. I'm pretty sure we've identified her head a few times...
Excited for anything? We got our crib delivered this week, so I'm excited to be able to put it together. I'm also excited that Christmas is coming up, although I am TOTALLY NOT READY. I have barely begun my gift shopping. And we probably should have already shipped our out of town gifts... ooops! They might not make it in time. But I am excited, none the less, even if I'm not on top of things this year.
How’s dad-to-be? He's feeling better each day and looks normal while walking around again, He doesn't enjoy being immobile and unable to do things, so he hasn't enjoyed the last few days too much, but he's definitely on the mend.
