Due Date: July 15, 2016
Baby Nugget is the size of an: Avocado is 4.6 inches and weighs about 3.5oz
Total weight gain: -3.4 lbs. This number surprised me because we were snowed in at the end of the week and into this week and I thought I was overeating. However, after my appointments Tuesday I was back on track with eating so I guess that helped.
Maternity Clothes: All scrubs this week. When I’m home, I’m in Hubbins’s tshirts and boxers
Stretch Marks: No new ones… I don’t think. #huskygirlproblems
Sleep: This week was great. Averaging about 6 hours a night getting up maybe twice a night for bathroom breaks. Last night, I had a pill to take at 2:15am and I thought that would throw me off but I had no problem falling back asleep. As I’m grounded for the next few days, I will probably be taking a nap or two throughout my day.
Best Moment of the Week: Getting to Pre-Op and finding all of my ‘mama hens’ there to take care of me. Seeing Nugget’s heartbeat after the procedure and knowing that it was chugging right along at 146. 🙂
Miss Anything? I know I have only been home for two days but I already know it will be rough to be home and not be doing anything. It would be different if I felt sick but I feel fine; I just have to not think about the projects that I could be doing and look at resting as doing my part to keep Nugget incubating for as long as I can.
Movement: Too soon to tell.
Food cravings: Gucamole and tortilla chips. I was talking to one of my girlfriends about my self imposed ban from Chipotle since their E.coli scare and I could feel my mouth starting to water thinking about their guacamole and chips.
Anything make you sick or queasy: Last weekend, we were making meatballs from scratch and the smell of the raw ground meat was SO overwhelming. I had to get Hubbins to mix the meatballs because I couldn’t fathom touching the raw meat.
Gender/Sex Prediction: I feel it is a girl. Planning to not find out till our reveal shower sometime in April/May.
Labor signs: Some pretty serious cramping Wednesday night into Thursday morning. My doctor started me on Indomethicin to stave off preterm labor till I began my progesterone shot today.
Symptoms: Heartburn, always heartburn
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Bump: Well..here it is. Starting to look less like tacos. Also: a shot of my comforter lol Coming soon: full body pics when I start to round out and look less like a capital letter B.
Happy or Moody: Happy! I had an initial moment of panic when I found out that my cervix was shortening but I am realizing that my doctors are so proactive and that is not always the norm. I went into the procedure feeling really calm and everything went smoothly. Also: my first progesterone shoot was not as bad as I expected!! I barely felt it.
Looking forward to: Wednesday I go back to my OB and check to see what progress is being made after the second surgery. Any day that I get to see my little one is a good day. Going to start working on my registry seeing as I’ll have nothing but time 🙂
Also: here is Baby Nugget!!! I was worried when I saw this because it looked like the placenta was smooshing the baby…my US tech laughed at me. .____.
