How far along: 28w0d
Baby’s size: 15.2 in., 2.54 lbs., about the size of a winter squash. Um, the picture looks more like a pumpkin. Same thing?? The pumpkins I’ve seen are huge though!
Total weight gain: Actually down this week 0.9 lbs., so up 16.5 lbs. from egg retrieval. Maybe the sugar-free lattes are working!
Sleep: Awful! I slept all of maybe two hours later night. The bathroom breaks are up to four times a night, and I just can’t get comfortable, my hips seem to ache no matter how I lay, pillows and all.
Symptoms/Feeling: I have a few I think are strange, but maybe others have these too… My pubic bone seriously hurts. Eric tells me this is normal, but what the heck does he know?? And my heels hurt when I walk. And my belly still feels tender to the touch, especially on the sides, like it’s bruised.
Best moment of this week: Seeing that I lost weight this morning! I feel like I gained way too much the previous two weeks, so maybe getting back on track now!
Miss anything: Sleeping on my stomach. I really can’t wait to do that again!
Movement: Yep! She’s quite active when I’m relaxing or after I’ve had something especially sweet to eat.
Food cravings: I just want food, and lots of it! Also, my obsession with oranges continues, and strawberries now too!
Labor signs: I’m really hoping my cervix is still at 1.3 cm. I honestly kind of miss the ultrasounds to check on it…
Belly button in or out: In, but looking more odd by the day.
Wedding rings on or off: On, but tight by evening.
Happy or moody most of the time: I was a little moody over the weekend. Eric was on-call and worked a lot at home while I busied myself organizing baby’s room, buying groceries, and cleaning. Cleaning is never fun.
Looking forward to: My birthday is this Wednesday the 11th, and while birthdays are always exciting, I’m not sure exactly how I feel about turning 35… I used to think 35 was old, but I certainly don’t feel old!
Purchases for baby: Still in search of a glider. Besides the one I posted about yesterday, I also like this one from Pottery Barn. I need to call and see where the closest location is that carries it so I can try it out!
Eric’s reactions: I’m a little sad that Eric probably won’t be able to join me for any more of my appointments… He’s just too busy with work, which totally sucks, but I suppose I should be used to his schedule by now. He just happens to have May 16th – May 24th off, planned way before we knew we were pregnant. Wishful thinking I can have baby girl a little early so he’ll have time off with me???
