I might as well keep going with the random week thing since I’ve done it all along, right?
We are over the pregnancy “hump” and headed down the hill towards the end!
I hear women are supposed to start feeling like superwomen during this time of their pregnancy…Where are these people? Speak up! Announce yourselves!
I just feel tired! Not to mention this week both Harper and I are sick as dogs with a cold. I have a baby on the inside trying to kill me, and one on the outside with the same goal I think.
Anyways, here’s the skinny on the bump:
I’m pouty. No fair, I just get over the nausea of pregnancy and mother nature pistol whips me with a cold. I give mother nature the double bird today. DOUBLE BIRD!!!!!
Size of the baby: He is about 1lb in weight, you might compare his size to a football now. WOW In a few weeks he will DOUBLE in size…and I will triple in size. Okay that last part was speculation, but no really…that could happen. He has sense of touch and taste now. Hope he liked my shepherd’s pie today. We are not too far away from him being a viable size to survive outside of me, although that is definitely not what we want, it’s nice to know that he would have a good chance to survive if he came out in a month or 2.
Weight gain: 20lbs. Mooooooooooooo Come’on Bessie, get in your stall and eat some hay!
Movement: Several times a day, and stronger than before. I can see my stomach move a tiny bit when he is dancing.
Sleep: Sleep has been okay the last 2 weeks I think. One can always use more, but I’ll take it. I have just been trying to watch my water intake before bed and make sure I pee every last drop when I’m tired enough to fall asleep so that I won’t wake up and the butt crack of dawn to pee.
what I miss: Self esteem. Being tan. Having pretty feet. Fitting into trendy clothes. I basically just avoid mirrors if possible, and public if possible.
Cravings: White hot chocolate (home made thankyouverymuch) and crab rangoon (home made thankyouveryfreakinmuch!).
Symptoms: Crazy dreams still, cranked up anxiety, swollen fingers when I sleep, BRAXTON HICKS this freaking early, heart palpitations (yea I know, what the heck? Being sent to a cardiologist at 6 months pregnant for that one.), and still those dang headaches that nobody seems to care about.
Best moment this week: Realizing Harper was asking for bites of our food every time we eat!
Worst moment this week: BEING SICK! Seeing Harper sick BREAKS MY HEART. She started to wheeze today when I got her up from a nap and it was so terrible to hear. I started to bawl uncontrollably…I get so scared that she is struggling to breathe with all that flem. I cried the entire drive to the DR (second visit in 3 days) to find out she has a cold and ear infection. Not to mention we had to wait 1.5 hours at the office for our appointment…I almost just ventured out myself to find a script pad for us. Yea, I know, illegal. Just a thought.
In other news, I’m looking for a couple of changes in my appearance. I’m making a promise to myself to get a spray tan this weekend and hopefully an ombre hair coloring done as well! Maybe those things will make me feel better! I also have a massage voucher that needs to be used….I can’t decide whether to use it now or later…I mean my back DOES hurt now!
Well tell me what’s going on in your bump land!
