Pregnancy is going great! I really can't complain too much. Overall I absolutely love being pregnant. I get no migraines. I love feeling the baby move. I look obviously pregnant now (and not just fat) and people are so sweet and I never tire of telling people I'm due in February... oh- and of course I love answering this question!!!
And a baby bump photo!
Here's myself (left) and my friend (right). She's due in January and this was taken last week when I was 26 weeks. We were bumping our bumps! I'm doing maternity photos this weekend (I'll be 28 weeks) so more bump photos coming soon.
How far along: 27.5 weeks!
Baby is the size of: a really big eggplant. 14.8 inches from head to toes! Baby weighs over 2 pounds.
Total weight gain: about 13 pounds
Maternity clothes: Almost exclusively. This week I realized I need a maternity coat. It's expensive to be pregnant in the winter. I could have gotten away with sundresses for much of the summer but no such luck in the winter!
Stretch marks: not yet....
Sleep: Still same old sleep issues. I wake up at 4am and fall back asleep eventually. I'm not uncomfortable but after the thirteenth pee break during the night I'm up, sigh. Baby is making sure I practice not sleeping in long stretches at once.
Best moment of this week: Feeling the baby move so much. I love the backflips and kicks and punches and hiccups and every little movement. He's such a wiggly guy!
Could live without: Restless leg syndrome... although iron supplements seem to be helping with this.
Movement: Yes! All the time. Love feeling this little guy move. :)
Food cravings: Lately I'm loving figs and cheese. I'm also totally addicted to hot chocolate.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eating too much or drinking too much water with a meal. Eating out seems to cause more heartburn than eating in too. The one hour glucose test drink did not make me feel well either.
Have you started to show yet: YES! I've gotta lovely little baby boy bump!
Labor signs: Thankfully, no.
Belly button in or out: In!
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy with the occasional stressed out moment in the past few weeks since I've been a bit overwhelmed with school.
Looking forward to: Maternity photos this weekend!
