How far along am I?

The size of a durian.

Pre-pregnancy weight: 130lbs Current weight: 150 lbs
I’ve gained a total of 20lbs 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
No appointment this week.
I have a couple of pairs of maternity jeans, leggings, and shirts. My regular jeans are much too tight to wear at this point and now a whole heap a lot of my regular shirts are too tight or will show my belly. It’s getting more difficult to find something to throw on. I can still wear loose fitting shirts or stretchy shirts that I had before I got pregnant. I’m also wearing a lot of my old maxi dresses now that Spring is here!
None yet. I’m using cocoa butter and lotion to help prevent.
She is moving even more now! It’s so crazy to me. Her movement is super strong and it’s getting really uncomfortable when she moves around now. I guess she is running out of room! She loves to move at night when I’m trying to sleep!
How am I sleeping?
Horribly! I wake up all the time to use the bathroom or I wake up from a leg cramp. Sometimes I can’t fall asleep because baby girl wants to move around so much right when I am trying to go to sleep. I may have to try and go to sleep earlier before she starts moving, but sometimes her movement even wakes me up out of my sleep!
My best moment this week
Baby shower at work!
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?
Still on, but I really need to take this engagement ring off and put it on my necklace. I think my band can stay on a little longer…it’s not as tight for some reason. I think this is my last week wearing my engagement ring.
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.
Have I started to show yet:
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
What am I looking forward to?
Baby shower tomorrow!
