Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Butternut Squash!
Total Weight Gain: 24lbs
Movement: We’re going through a nudge, slide and roll period. Not so much kicking. More calculated movements it seems.
Sleep: I have nightmares or weird dreams and none having anything to do with the baby. I usually wake up very early and have leg cramps. So late mornings in hasn’t happened in a long time.
What I miss: My body not hurting when I sleep. Being able to wear whatever I want and being able to lift and move things.
Cravings: I had a brief craving for croissants and oranges but those passed.
Symptoms: At this point I get Braxton Hicks, sciatic and a lumbar nerve pinch that gets me in the right thigh muscle. Nothing too nutty. All in all I’ve been lucky.
Emotions: The further I’ve gone the less anxious I’ve been. Now I am pretty calm and ready for whatever.
Maternity Clothes: I wear limited maternity and I’ve been lucky to make a lot of non maternity clothes work for me. I have a few maternity garments from motherhood and target. They’ve helped me look nice for work. I also wear dresses and stretchy stuff with leggings.
People Suck Moment of the week: The lady who opened her giant golf umbrella right in front of me without looking when it started to lightly drizzle. I had my hand out to hit it really hard but I didn’t feel like getting mad at 8 am.
Best Moment this week: We’ve almost completed little man’s room. I am so excited!!!
