Total weight gain: +11. Awesome and I am heading on vacation as a write this so I expect to see this number increase a lot next week!
Maternity clothes: Still wearing a mixture of both. This bump is lower than Emerson so I think my days of wearing regular workout pants are numbered.
Stretch marks: Still in the clear!
Sleep: Rough week. Emerson is sick AGAIN and is not sleeping, eating or drinking. Needless to say I am a frustrated and sleepy mama. We actually thought she might have to go to the ER because she wasn’t drinking/ having wet diapers. She is all better now, but has to have a nebulizer treatment every day for the next 3 months.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my stomach.
Movement: Yes! It is the best feeling!
Food cravings: Still craving spinach salad with egg, avocado, and my honey mustard dressing. I could eat that every day. Eating more and more this week – feeling hungrier than normal.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Honestly no. I feel very lucky.
Gender: BOY! We are so excited! We seriously thought it was a girl since we were told 80% yes based on the nub theory. I already had everything figured out in my head as far as girl....even had the name narrowed down, so we are seriously surprised!
Symptoms: Feeling big which is sad because I have so much time left to go!
Happy or Moody: Probably more moody – everything is annoying me since I am so tired.
Looking forward to: Vacation!!!!
Exercise: I ran once in the morning through our new hood and it was awesome and then was able to do a run/ walk with Emerson one day. Both were about 3 miles. Our neighborhood is very hilly so I need to figure out some different routes because pregnancy and hills don’t work well together for me.
Total weight gain: +12. Vacation weight gain! Whoop whoop!
Maternity clothes: Both. I always wear maternity jeans, but the other types of pants I tend to stick to my regular. Obviously maternity dresses and tops unless they are the big blouse kind that will fit any shape.
Stretch marks: I see some on my sides….epic fail.
Sleep: Amazing since we spent 4 days in Punta Cana so we were both able to rest up!
Miss Anything? My luggage? I checked a bag because I was too lazy to decide what would fit/ not fit for our trip. Plus I forgot to buy travel sunscreen and face wash. I NEVER check a bag just because it is a hassle. Well, they lost this pregnant mama’s bag and it has been such a headache. They told me to buy whatever I would need for 24 hours which would be cool if I wasn’t pregnant. Our resort had like 3 clothing stores and only one of which is appropriate/ fit….(lots of short saucy dresses & string bikinis in the others). This one store was super expensive and I am super cheap so I have such anxiety that US Airways won’t pay us back. We will see. The good news is that they found my suitcase, but lesson learned…never checking a bag again.
Movement: More and more….love it! I can start to see him move from the outside which is cool.
Food cravings: My spinach salads and I ate my body weight in pineapple and brownies on our trip. I drank lots of virgin mojitos too which were delicious.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I have felt dizzy a few times, but that has more to do with my low blood pressure I think.
Symptoms: This is gross, but sometimes coughing up blood in the mornings. I have an appointment today and will ask about it. I also noticed more pulling/ cramping when I stand up.
Happy or Moody: Both! Super happy to be on vacation and spend the day we got back with Emerson, but losing your bag in a foreign country is a downer.
Looking forward to: Setting up our house. I can’t wait to start on the nursery and Emerson’s room.
Exercise: I ran twice. Once on vacation and once in our neighborhood. I need to be better.
