How far along: 29 weeks.
Total weight gain: I went to the OB appointment on Monday and I’ve only gained 2more lbs in the last 4 weeks for a total of 14lbs. Too bad my Nurse practitioner was on vacation and didn’t see major progress!
Maternity clothes: I still like to wear both as far as the tops go
Best moment this week: Hearing her heartbeat again and spending so great quality time with my family that came to visit from Arizona. It’s been a great and blessed week!
Foods: No complains here! I love, love, love food! Since I feel like I’m constantly eating, I’ve decided that I really need to munch more on healthy snacks, so I’ve been eating more fruits and veggies. Quick pat on the back for me. Haha
Movement: Lots and I love it every time!
Gender: Sweet little girl
Labor signs: apparently I’ve been experiencing contractions, and I had no idea! When I went to my appointment on Monday, the NP asked me if I’ve been experiencing any contractions and I said “no.” However when she said that it may be in a form of feeling pressure “down under” I was like “oh my gosh, I have been!” I swear some days after I walk too much or do more work than usual, I feel sooo much pressure in my pelvic region! It feels like I’m bruised. She said it’s normal as long as they are very infrequent and go away while I rest. I shouldn’t experience more than one contraction every 1/2hr, which I haven’t.
Belly Button in or out: Still only the top is out. It came a long way from where it’s been!
What I miss: just the usual: being able to get up without rolling over three times before I actually do, breathing normally again, etc. Like I said, the usual.
How I feel: So excited to move in a little under one month! I’ve already started packing. Also, I only have 8 days left of work!!! I’m going to miss my coworkers, but I’m so excited for some time off! I’m also super scared that the house we’re trying to buy won’t be ready for us to move into before we get there!
Milestones: My OB visits are every 2 weeks now! She also weighs 3lbs and is about 15in long, and I only have 27% left before we see each other. Gosh, I can hardly wait to meet her!
