Thoughts: Due date is 2 months from tomorrow!I am feeling VERY pregnant this week. I've got the full on pregnancy waddle going on and I feel like my belly grows overnight. I told Jon yesterday that I feel like I am growing a lot under my belly button which makes it hard to even just sit.
Baby: my app says he is 18 inches and 3.5lbs! I can't wait to get a more accurate measurement on Friday at our appointment. He is now processing information (wonder what he's thinking about?!), tracking light, and perceiving signals from all 5 senses.
Symptoms: had to take Zofran twice in the past week but no sickness, just took it to prevent it. Heart flutters/palpitations, a few Braxton Hicks contractions, and heaviness in my belly.
Movement: yes! Sometimes I feel like he's going to break through my skin because it's so hard. He is getting really squished inside of me so instead of quick little punches, they are slow and intense. He's been getting the hiccups a lot lately and my whole tummy moves. It's cute to think about him playing around in my belly!
Cravings/aversions/eating: lots of fruit! And of course I am craving chocolate but having to satisfy the cravings with sugar free/low sugar options (pudding cups, sugar free cookies, diabetic friendly yogurt). I have also had extreme thirst and drinking lots of water lately.
Workout: I lifted some weights twice last week and went on a couple walks which are getting to be quite the workout for me! We washed the cars last night and I woke up SORE this morning haha.
Sleep: some nights I zonk out so easily and other nights I toss and turn like crazy. Since I can only sleep on my side, moving from one side to the other is quite the chore and leaves me exhausted!
Clothes: maternity all the way! Pre pregnancy I always bought tanks a size bigger and was able to wear those for most of the pregnancy but now they are becoming too short. Luckily I have lots of maternity tanks and tshirts, and can also wear non maternity flowy dresses as long tunic type tops. I've noticed my undies getting really tight around my waste so anytime we are at home, I wear Jon's boxers.
Random: my baby shower is this weekend and I am so so excited! The theme is mustaches (of course) and I am really looking forward to spending time with family and friends. It seems like yesterday that we told my family we were pregnant and they were already planning the shower.
Doctor's appointments: we have our 31 week appointment Friday afternoon (I will be 31w5d) and they will retest my fasting blood sugar to make sure I pass again and we will have an ultrasound to measure our boy's growth! My mom and sisters are going to come with me to see him :)
I took this yesterday at the gym (exactly 31 weeks). Earlier in my pregnancy I bought some flowy workout tops from Old Navy thinking they'd cover my tummy but they are slowly creeping up!
