Due Date: May 8, 2012
Weight Gain: Up 1 lb this week. Running total: 17lbs!
Symptoms: Big ol' belly! Soreness in my back, hips, and legs. Giant kicks, rolls, and punches from baby girl. Occasional tingling and numbness in my arms, and a little bit of nausea. Also, I've developed some kind of rash along my upper abdomen and sides, and the underside of my arms- not sure it's pregnancy related, but it sure is annoying.
Cravings: Milk and food of any kind.
Sleep: I fall asleep fairly easily, but I'm waking up a few times in the night and my back and ribs pretty darn sore. There's really not any comfortable positions anymore. Makes for an uber tired Mama, which then means I fall asleep fairly easily, etc. It's a vicious cycle.
I am loving: Being able to pick out her body parts in my belly- the other day I found her foot, tickled that spot on my belly and she squirmed away:)
I miss: Being able to find a comfortable position, and not being sore all.the.time.
I am looking forward to: My last baby shower is this weekend with our families and my hometown friends!
I'm spazzing about: The bookcase we want for her bedroom is still out of stock, and we're still not 100% sure which stroller we want.
Best thing about this week: My baby shower at work last Friday, JBF, and getting to talk to a pediatrician at our childbirth class this weekend.
Milestones: I have single digit weeks left (9)!! Also, noticed my first stretch marks Saturday night- we'll see how many I end up with by the time she's here!
Movement: Lots of it, and can be uncomfortable. I love knowing she's doing well though!
It's a...: Girl!!! Emersyn Grace:)
