Thoughts: last night we spent some time praying for our friends who were induced yesterday and waiting on their baby girl and got very emotional knowing that in just a few weeks, we'd be praying through our son's birth. For some reason I am so anxious to hit 30 weeks, not that I want him to come, but each week he stays inside of me, I feel so much more confident. Jon said I was glowing this week and that gets me so excited to meet my little boy.
Baby: baby should be about 3lbs and 17 inches now... that is big! His bones are hardening and soaking up a lot of my calcium. Hopefully he'll take after his daddy and love milk!
Symptoms:8 days Zofran free!! Yay! Friday night I started experiencing pretty bad pain on the left side of my pubic bone area. Of course we did research and it says don't sit down too long, don't stand up too long, don't carry things over 5lbs, etc, etc, etc. The pain comes and goes but it is really intense at times. Heart flutters/palpitations and still having a hard time catching my breath at times (I realized I can no longer sing worship at church because my heartrate would speed up and I'd feel exhausted lol!). TMI but I do want to remember this for my future pregnancies, I started leaking a little colostrum...lovely.
Movement: yes, all the time. Some mornings he wakes me up with kicks and jabs and sometimes he sleeps in. One thing I know I will miss about pregnancy is feeling these precious kicks! He loves the music at church too.
Cravings/aversions/eating: after failing a portion of my glucose test last week, it's been interesting (and hard) to tame my chocolate/dessert/sweets cravings. I have been eating TONS of fruit and eating sugar free pudding cups and ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
Workouts: this week has been the most drastic change in my energy levels. I tried to go to the gym last Friday and was just so incredibly exhausted. Walks here and there and I am going to try to do some light weights this week.
Sleep: really inconsistent lately... womp womp. One night I was up 5-6 times going to the bathroom and tossing and turning and the next night I slept a solid 8 hours.
Clothes: finally getting to wear lots of sundresses! Lots of my pre pregnancy ones fit me but are a little short up front but it's nice to have more options than just the maternity clothes I've bought. At night I have to wear Jon's boxers to bed because everything else is so tight
Random: I am a registered donor for Be The Match and knew right away that I wanted to donate our baby's cord blood since we decided against banking. Now that we are late enough in our pregnancy, we've been filling out forms to prep for the collection. Please pray with me that our son's blood would save lives!
I finally got in the pool on Sunday!!! I have been looking forward to that since I got pregnant and it felt amazing. I mostly laid on a float, and walked around the shallow end, it was so relaxing! And yes I am rocking a bikini as long as I don't get stretch marks, maternity suits are $$$ so I am using what I have (bought this suit for $5 at Old Navy last fall... score).
