|Don't mind my saggy ass. Only gaining weight in my belly, wouldn't mind some junk in my trunk finally.|
This post is coming to you a little late as I was struck with a cold that knocked me out the end of last week.
Size: At my 36 week appointment the doc felt baby girl and said they believe she is of average size and probably right around 6 lbs. How accurate that is only time will tell.
Weight gain: Up now 28 pounds. Steadily climbing up the scale. Even with being sick I still had a major appetite and had to eat for my gestational diabetes so I assume at my 37 week appointment tomorrow that I will be up another pound. Belly measuring right on the appropriate week.
Maternity clothes: Still lucky enough to fit into non-maternity items, leggings and only wearing a few tops and pants.
Stretch marks: No new marks!! Hooray!
Sleep: Improving a little bit. We put our memory foam topper back on the bed and that has seemed to help on the achy legs front. Only getting up once a night to pee.
Gender: Charlotte Jane!
Movement: Still an active girl. Mostly in the AM and after dinner. Joe got to witness her soccer skills this weekend much more defined now that she is running out of room.
Best moment this week: Starting to pack the hospital bag. Shits getting real. Other than that I felt like poo dollar and spent 4 days on my couch so not a whole lot of great moments unless you count getting through 5 seasons of Sons of Anarchy on Netflix.
Looking forward to: Feeling 100% better and some holiday fun this coming week.
Food Cravings: Orange juice and cold cereal.
Food Aversions: Eggs, peanut butter, bread…. oh wait, that's all I eat.
Labor Signs: definitely googled to see if I was in labor yesterday. Strong back pain came on suddenly, nausea, cramping. I went grocery shopping and tried to organize some things and I think it was my body's wall of telling me to slow down since I have been so sick.
What I miss: Eating like a normal person
Symptoms: back pain, cramping, nausea, waddling, overall running on fumes it feels.
Mood: Excited the holidays are here!!! Can't wait to see when Miss Charlie decides to make her debut!
