All that baby’s been up to this week:
– My womb is running out of room for baby, so while the kicks might feel less forceful with less room to move, they shouldn’t decrease in frequency.
– Baby is still putting on healthy baby fat, as she will through infancy.
– Baby’s eyes are completely in place, but her sight will continue to improve using the Vitamin A I am getting.
– Baby might weigh almost 3lbs this week!
– Baby’s rapidly increasing weight is helping her stay warm.
– Baby is repeatedly moving her diaphragm as a method for practicing breathing.
– Baby might be lowering herself down toward the birth canal, getting ready to be born!
All that’s been going on with me:
Weight gained: Total weight gain so far is -8lbs. I originally lost 12lbs, so I’m slowly gaining what I lost back. My next midwife appointment is tomorrow, so we’ll see how much I’ve gained this month.
Workouts: Yeah…no workouts. Didn’t happen.
Symptoms: Frequent trips to the bathroom and other bathroom “issues” that I don’t care to delve into.
Movement: She still has moments where she will be completely still for long periods of time, then out of nowhere – she’ll dance around like a mad girl inside of me.
Food Aversions: No aversions.
Food Cravings: Captain D’s fish and fries! Luckily, I was able to indulge in my craving immediately!
Sleep: Not sleeping as much these days. I wake up at least once an hour throughout the night to go to the bathroom.
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: My flight was cancelled Friday night, and I didn’t fly back home until late last night. I missed Dennis terribly, and I can’t wait to knock more things off of my to-do list before baby is here!
Belly Button In or Out: It’s flat.
Happy or Moody: Moody.
New Baby Items: My Aunt Paula bought a few super cute baby items – a sleeper, a onesie set, two headbands, and a set of socks. 🙂
Looking Forward To: Putting the crib up! We’ve had it sitting in my daughter’s room since April, and since she’ll be away visiting family for a month, it’s the perfect time to assemble it!
See you at 30 weeks!
