How far along? I am currently 28 weeks to date! We are in our last trimester. YAY!
Total weight gain: +15 lbs
Maternity clothes: Eh. Havent bought anything recently. I want to save my money for after the baby to get me some new clothes:)
Sleep: I kid you not, I come home from work at 5pm, cook dinner, do a couple things around the house, maybe take a bath, and then head to bed. I am literally in my bed ASLEEP by 9pm. Derek and I joke all the time that its past my bedtime after 7:30pm. I have been sleeping great, just a lot of weird dreams…
Labour signs: I have started to experience Braxton Hicks contractions which was really crazy. It kind of scared me at first because we want him to cook for a lot longer, but my doctor told me that its the way my body is preparing for birth! Ah!
Symptoms: My back and hips start to hurt by the end of the day. I work at a desk most of my day and I guess I am starting to feel that with my changing body. Its been really difficult but Derek helps me stretch it out and get rid of the pain. He really is great! I have not thrown up in over a week! YAY YAY YAY!!!
Wedding ring on or off? With the big jump in weight gain the last 6 weeks, my ring is starting to get tight.
Mood: I really am so happy! I cant wait to to meet this little man. Its such a great time of year with all the holidays and get togethers with family I get really giddy! Life is great & God is near.
Food cravings: I havent been craving anything, but with the holidays around its been the best time to be pregnant! All the yummy food just makes me so happy! haha
Movement: He is moving a ton. I tend to get nervous on the weekends because I don’t feel him as much as during the week. My mom has to remind me that I don’t pay attention to it as much as during the weekend, which is completely true. We usually have a ton going on and have a lots of running around to do.
How’s Dad? Dad is stressed. This week is finals week at SUU! He has two more days left and he will be done with the semester, which we are both super excited about! As far as the baby goes, he is pumped. He always talks to my tummy trying to get him to move, or talks about how much he is going to spoil him. I love hearing these things. This little guy already has such a special part in our hearts:)
Miss anything: The weight gain is starting to freak me out. I have had to talk to multiple people about it. However, I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is healthy and strong.
Looking forward to: I am really looking forward to the holidays and being around family. Two of my sisters-in-law have newborns so I cant wait to hold them and get a glimpse of what its going to be like with our little man!
Best moment of the week:
-Cleaning out the babies room: Our house doesn’t have much storage so since we have moved in the baby’s room has been made into a storage room. This past weekend Derek and I cleaned it all out and its starting to LOOK like a nursery! We have his swing and bouncer in there and every time I walk past I get a smile on my face. He is coming soon!
-Baby showers: I am getting ready to have a couple baby showers and registering for items have made it so real! I start looking at things and I realize “Oh ya. I might need that.” I was the youngest and seeing all my siblings have babies I guess I have gotten use to all the baby items, but now that its my turn to be a mom its crazy to think its my turn!
