Due Date: July 15, 2016
Baby Nugget is the size of a: Small peach and measures about 2.9 inches .
Total weight gain: -2.2 lbs. I am up a pound this week from last week but doctor is still really pleased with my weight gain thus far.
Maternity Clothes: A belly band when I wear jeans. I did invest in some soft cotton bras to sleep in this week and they have been life changing. My breasts feel like boulders and I have maybe 2 more weeks in my current bras.
Stretch Marks: No new ones… I don’t think. #huskygirlproblems
Sleep: Due to being up worrying about the cerclage, I haven’t been sleeping well. Post cerclage last night, I maybe got 3 hours but I don’t feel tired. Maybe this is the famed 2nd trimester energy spurt starting to kick in?
Best Moment of the Week: Knowing my cerclage was successful and seeing Baby Nugget’s heartbeat after the procedure.
Miss Anything? Not really this week. My appetite has been weird.
Movement: Too soon to tell.
Food cravings: I crave different things but usually when I get them I have no appetite for them. This week I wanted NY style pizza, a gyro and a turkey hero and ate maybe 6 bites of each before I was full.
Anything make you sick or queasy: Having an empty stomach. The smell of onions or garlic.
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: Nothing not cerclage related this week other than Boulder Breasts but I’m sure that isn’t going away anytime soon.
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: Extremely happy my procedure went well. I know I was worried about the procedure but I feel almost like I have an insurance policy now and I feel a little more secure in my pregnancy. Also, feeling extremely blessed to have regular ultrasounds scheduled.
Looking forward to: Seeing Nugget on Monday and getting my first post cerclage cervical measurement. Additionally, my dad’s birthday is next weekend and we are planning to drive to North Carolina and will tell him on his birthday on Friday. I ordered a onesie that says “Grandpa’s future fishing buddy” and I can’t wait to see the look on his face.
