Well it's been another couple of weeks and I'm still here and definitely more pregnant by the day. I've kindly been reminded that I'm slacking on updates, so here we go for 33 weeks!
How far along? 33 weeks
And for kicks here I am at 32 weeks:
Total weight gain/loss: Up around 25 big ones as of my last appointment. I think I'll have no problem hitting my target gain of 30 lbs and since I'm an overachiever, I may even surpass it. I'm surprisingly calm about the weight even at this point. I'll figure things out once the bebe is out.
Maternity clothes? Yes, and still wearing some of my regular tops. Maxi dresses are my best friend and I can't wait for the weather to be nicer so I can wear more dresses. I am pretty much done shopping for maternity clothes- I have 3 pairs of pants and 2 maternity tops- the rest have been longer tops and lots of layering from my current wardrobe.
Stretch marks? None yet.
Sleep: Sleep is still great. I'm up to 3 pillows now but can still fall asleep and stay asleep easily. Knock on wood.
Best moment this week: I had time off of work and we had a staycation. This time last year we went to Mendocino for our first vacation with Chino and this year we accompanied hubby on a business trip to CA's Central Valley. It was so nice to spend time as a family of 3 (and my squirmy little companion).
We also celebrated Passover and baby liked all the singing and grape juice and danced the whole time. I'm excited to celebrate more holidays with the little guy when he's in the outside world.
This week's comment of the week:
I think that since I passed the awkward stage of looking like I ate too many cookies to being obviously pregnant, people have been nothing but nice to me. Doors get opened, I get treated really well, and people tell me I look good with a basketball belly, so I'm taking it!
Miss Anything? I'm getting ready to claim back my old body and have more clothing items to wear, but I would honestly not trade this for anything in the world. The baby needs to keep cooking.
Movement: I have an active little babysaurus in there. He has his feet up by my ribs and loves rolling and stretching. We hang out on the couch or in the car and hubby gets to feel some of the shenanigans. Baby is hanging out upside down as of right now and I hope he stays that way.
Food cravings: Most of the time I eat just like normal, but I have been loving peach iced tea, cereal, all fruit, veggies, and cold drinks. I had a few days where I was more thirsty than hungry and a few hungry days here and there. I think I have seriously impressed my husband with the sheer volume of food I can take down but it's mostly healthy :) Of course the warmer weather has brought me a couple of frozen yogurt runs.
Symptoms: I'm feeling great. I am thankful to not have any of the icky symptoms (yet) and anything I have is really minor. I have tons of energy and feel best when I'm moving around rather than sitting. I can tell I am heavier, especially in the belly region and randomly get winded. I'm also pretty clumsy lately- not sure if I can blame that on pregnancy though.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and starting to get a little anxious. We have most of the items we need and will be taking care of the outstanding things in the next few weeks. I think I have been in slight denial of the HUMAN that will join us soon but I think we can tackle anything. I have been working on the baby's room (i.e. organizing) and baby has quite the wardrobe already.
I also put up a wall decal so that we can have some more color in the room.
Exercise: Lots of walks/hikes, a few gym sessions, and yoga. I'm counting anything as exercise these days and going to keep it up as long as I can.
