Baby Size: Apparently this is a Durian fruit. I don't know what that even is. The fact that this baby is probably at least 4lbs is kind of crazy to me.
Weight: Only up 1 1/2 lbs this week which is great, but totally is 31 1/2.
- Braxton Hicks happening a lot more often
- Back aches and hip pain
- Acid reflux has gotten bad. I'm sick of burping up dinner.
- Feeling out of breath all the time. Just drop baby so I can breath better.
- I think she's pushing on my cervix or something because I feel pain on a daily basis now.
- On the plus side I did better about not being an emotional nutcase this last week. Yeah!
Maternity Clothes: I've started borrowing some of Rob's t-shirts to wear around the house and sleep in since my stomach hangs out of mine. I need new bra's, but really don't want to buy any and then have to buy more in a few weeks. And finding bra's that fit is already sucky, nursing bra's that fit sucks even more.
Sleep: I wish.
Cravings/Food Aversions: No real cravings. Still liking pizza, mostly just thirsty a lot
Belly Button: Flat to out.
Rings on or off: I feel like people are going to be judging me, but I don't wear them very often. They are to snug.
Name: Eleanor Rose
Movement: Yes. A lot now. I'll be sitting on the couch on the laptop and I'll get these crazy kicks and I have to throw my hands up and be like whoa!
And I realized last weekend when talking to my sister in law that I have been feeling her hiccup for weeks, but I didn't know that's what it was. I heard people talking about them, but figured they were supposed to be stronger, but when I asked what they felt like, and she told me, I knew that's what I had been feeling.
Stretch Marks: A ton of new ones on the belly plus the ones on my hip.
Best moment: Rob put the changing table together. It's lame, but I was happy it was done.
I'm starting to be able to distinguish body parts. Or at least what I assume are her feet.
Looking forward to: I have another baby shower this week for Rob's family, and one for my mom's family as well.
Nervous about: Breastfeeding. I really want to make it work, but I'm worried my body won't cooperate.
I found this interesting image though, which might make me feel a little better.
What I miss: Bending over, being able to get up easily. Rob was laughing at me on Sunday because I was trying to rock myself to get momentum to get up. Then he offered to help me. :)
Labor signs: I've been having sporadic Braxton-Hicks. I asked Rob to feel how hard my stomach was and he was a little concerned about it. But they aren't painful and not at regular intervals so I'm not concerned by it. I know it's normal.
Appointments: Friday morning. It's a checkup with the nurse practitioner, but I have some questions about the delivery etc..
Misc. I am sleeping so poorly and it's starting to hit me how little sleep I am going to actually get. I'm up every hour and half to two hours now, but I am able to go back to bed. To be up that often and then have to nurse or feed the baby is going to get tiring real fast.
