I’ve gained a total of 22lbs so far.
*I will update after every doctor’s appointment as their scale is more accurate than the one at home.
Doctor’s Appointment Update
Doctor’s appointment went fine as usual. My blood pressure is a little on the lower side, but still fine. Midwife said that’s probably what’s causing me to be dizzy and whatnot. My stomach is measuring 33cm which is also fine because it’s two within range of how many weeks I am. Baby’s heartbeat is in the 150-160 range which is great. She is laying diagonally with her head still downward. I will start seeing the midwife on a weekly basis starting next week.
Yes. I have some maternity jeans and shirts. I’m also wearing a lot of my maxi dresses that I had before pregnancy. They still fit fine.
None yet. I’m using cocoa butter and lotion to help prevent.
Lots! She loves to move the most when it’s time for me to go to sleep. Sometimes she seems active for the entire day and night!
How am I sleeping?
I’m not getting much sleep due to a very active baby.
My best moment this week
Baby shower and my birthday!
Do I miss anything?
Being able to sleep through the whole night.
Belly button in or out?
It has officially popped! It’s so weird!
Wedding ring on or off?
My engagement ring is OFF! I put it up. My wedding band is still on though for now.
What am I eating?
I’m eating pretty much the same things, but trying to add in more fruits, veggies, and fiber! I’ve been doing better with my water.
How do I feel? Symptoms?
TIRED! Trouble sleeping. A lot more braxton hicks. Shortness of breath. Super dry skin. Back aches. LEG CRAMPS. Stomach itching. Sore boobs. Sometimes they are not that sore and other times they are super sore! They are also bigger of course. Pressure. Sinus issues which are 1000x worse when pregnant! I already have shortness of breath so pair that with a stopped up nose and you have one miserable mommy! Baby brain. HOT…and I’m usually cold. Dizziness.
Have I started to show yet:
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
What am I looking forward to?
