Due Date: July 15, 2016
Baby Nugget is the size of a: Lime
Total weight gain: -3.2 lbs. I did a lot better with being intentional about drinking more water. Trying to hold off on my weight gain for as long as I can.
Maternity Clothes: A belly band when I wear jeans. Luckily, I work in scrubs so those feel the most comfy. I am dangerously near to needing new bras..trying to hold out.
Stretch Marks: No new ones… I don’t think. #huskygirlproblems
Sleep: Better this week. I purchased a Cold Mist humidifier and with the help of that and a vile tasting concoction of garlic and honey that my friend whipped up for me, I am averaging about 6 hours a night. I still need at 2 hour nap when I get home in the evening though.
Best Moment of the Week: Hubbins and I spoke about potential plans for our room once baby gets here. It is the first we have mentioned anything for the future regarding this pregnancy.
Miss Anything? Steak cooked to medium temp. NYE Champagne!
Movement: Too soon to tell.
Food cravings: Ramen noodles!!!
Anything make you sick or queasy: Water. I have to squeeze a lemon or lime in it to keep it down. Also..did you know water can give you heartburn? No? Me either.
Gender/Sex Prediction: I feel it is a girl. Planning to not find out till our reveal shower sometime in April/May.
Labor signs: Thankfully no!! I need these to not be a thing for a good long time.
Symptoms: I have noticed that around my ankles seem “vein-ier” (I’m sure that’s not a word). My mom got terrible varicose veins during both of pregnancies so I have always been in fear of these.
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Bump: Meh.. who knows. I feel slightly fluffier. Eventually, I’ll start adding pictures once it looks more like a baby and less like tacos.
Happy or Moody: Anxious? Not knowing what is going to happen in the next week or so regarding the cerclage is a little too much for my Type A personality that has to plan everything.
Looking forward to: NT ultrasound scan on the 4th. I will also get the blood work back from my genetic tests. On the 5th, I go to Dr. H. and we decide on the cerclage date.
I really hope everyone has a wonderful 2016. 2015 was hard but I am glad that I have had a chance to meet all of you, share your stories and start to find my place in a new community of friends.
