How far along? 34 WeeksTotal weight gain: I am up 25lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes, along with some soccer shorts, tank tops, and my maternity swim suit especially with these 100+ degree days.
Stretch marks? Not yet, and I am about to buy a second tube of cocoa butter cream!
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty good when we can get the house cooled down enough before bedtime, otherwise it's a struggle with the heat.
Best moment this week: Setting up the Nursery!! We have the glider, dresser, crib, and changing table set up. I haven't started washing anything though because I don't have the right detergent yet.
Miss Anything? Sitting for long periods of time. At the A's game last night I paid for sitting and hour and a half straight :( oops.
Movement: Baby girl Hiccups like crazy all the time! You can see my belly jiggle when she has them too, it's fun to watch! I think she flipped sides because now I get a lot of jabs/kicks in my left side versus my right side that I had been getting for the past couple months. I still don't think she is head down or dropped yet. She is resting very high today, hence the heartburn.
Food cravings: Vanilla ice cream, and Mexican food, not together though.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Ha ha, just the skunk that is hanging around the property lately. I feel like I have super sniffer powers. (I know my sense of smell is heightened, but really I would love not to smell skunk all the time)
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Still heartburn, and the occasional sciatica, but oh my I had my first real Braxton Hicks contraction the other day. I actually asked Ross to time is because it was that strong! It lasted for 1 minute and 55 seconds! My body is definitely getting ready.
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie but very close to becoming a flattie. :)
Wedding rings on or off? I finally took my wedding band off because after a really hot day it got stuck so I decided to be safe and just keep it off until it safely fits again.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Somewhat anxious for labor and delivery.
Looking forward to: Holding baby girl and celebrating holidays like today with her!
Here are a few pictures of her nursery so far...
Just about each piece of furniture has sentimental value and has been passed down.
|The infamous glider, I know I can always count on finding Ross in that chair! |
Pretty soon he won't be holding his phone in it though, he'll be holding his sweet baby girl!
