HAPPY 2015 EVERYONE!! 🙂
How far along: 36 weeks and 4 days
And just for giggles…Here’s what can happen in 20 weeks:
The front AND the back have expanded. Oh well.
Baby Size: A honeydew (17.2 – 18.7 inches and 4.2 – 5.8 lbs) or a large cantaloupe (19 – 22 inches, 6 lbs) [the first stat is from TheBump.com, the second is from WhatToExpect.com]
Weight gain: Up around 30lbs or so. I managed to pack on 10 pounds between my 32 week and 35 week appointment. Whoopsie! Again, doctor wasn’t worries so, I’m not! And I’m still a lot lower than when I had Brooke, so that’s a victory in and of itself!
Workouts: Not too shabby. I went Monday and Tuesday of this week and am going today, so that’s a victory in and of itself. There is a lot of scaling going on, but you gotta do what you’ve gotta do!
Just a little clean & jerk action – 95lbs. I could clean 105lbs but couldn’t get it overhead. BOO.
Maternity clothes: Yes.
Stretch marks: I can’t tell if they are the same ones from Brooke or new ones but, yeah…boo
Sleep: It’s been a bit better the past couple of nights, which is good. Still waking to go to the bathroom a couple times…but overall, it could be worse 🙂
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Movement: He’s an active little dude, that is for sure! At the past few doctors appointments when the nurse is getting his heart rate, they always comment on how he doesn’t sit still, even for a few seconds for them to get the measurement… and he gets the hiccups all. the. time. We’re in for some fun, I suppose 🙂
Food cravings: All the usual stuff that isn’t good for me. Now that is a new year, I’m trying to be a bit better about my choices, but I have that little voice inside my head saying ‘it’s only a couple more weeks’ so I’m trying super hard to ignore that and make good choices…
Aversions: Doing good as of right now!
Labor Signs: Some braxton hicks, but nothing unusual.
What I miss: Decent lung capacity. I just get winded very easily. And pants with zippers 🙂 And looking like I did at 16 weeks. Or before.
Symptoms: The symptoms are just getting more and more fun! Peeing a lot, super tired, headaches, braxton hicks, yeah…a bowl full of fun.
Nursery: We got the crib set up, curtains hung, and things kind of in a place…but I need to still go through everything and wash clothes and sheets and all that jazz….but we’re getting there!
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Mood: Fairly good, I think…
Best moment this week: Well, the last two weeks, really. Christmas with my little family was amazing. I loved playing with Brooke! She still doesn’t really ‘get’ it, but she loved the presents and opening boxes!
And ringing in the new year with some friends! We had a couple folks over to the house to bring in 2015 in style (with a game night and tacos!) and it was lovely! We all stayed up way past our bedtimes, but it was worth it! Sadly, I didn’t snap any pictures except for our taco bar, hah!
Looking forward to: 2015! There are big things to come this year (in a couple of weeks, actually!) and I am super excited to meet B2 and begin our lives as a family of 4.
