How far along? 35 weeks
Baby is the size of: Honeydew Melon
Total weight gain: -.5lbs (Total +18lbs)
Maternity clothes? Yes, shorts and leggings and I have a couple shirts. Most of my normal shirts I can wear but I can't tell it won't be for much longer.
Stretch marks? Still have one on my belly so far but it's growing.
Sleep: Its getting harder to sleep because my stomach just always feels uncomfortable and my hips hurt. I'm always so thirsty before bed so I end up having to pee a lot. It hurts to get out of bed because I'm so stiff and my hips hurt. Sometimes the acid makes it hard to fall asleep.
Best moment this week: THANKSGIVING with my family.
Movement: yes, she is a wiggle worm. She also like to push hard which does not feel good. She will stretch and push on both sides of my stomach. She also likes to push hard down there which means sharp pains and sometimes makes me feel like I'm going to pee myself.
Food cravings: sweets sweets and more sweets. I love sparkling apple cider and frozen yogurt. Also, peach ice tea from Olive Garden is to die for!
Things that make me sick: horrible acid after eating and when I feel like there is a giant knot in my stomach.
Labor signs: I'm starting to get Braxton hicks. At least that's what I'm thinking they are. It's hard to tell since it's not extreme pressure like I thought it would be.
Symptoms: Really bad heart burn after I eat and randomly throughout the day. Cramps.
Harder to breathe.
Swelling in my hands and feet.
My lower back is killing me and when I stand for to long, the top muscle in my stomach feels like it's ripping and I get very out of breath.
Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? Off but I have a beautiful replacement.
Feelings: Emotional and easily stressed.
Looking forward to: Her arrival!!
Oils that are helping: Thieves, Lavender, lemon and peppermint.
Now plays with his toys and creates stories. He has then talk to each other.
Tells Mike and I to sing songs while we are driving in the car.
When he wants something, he says, " I have to". Or when he doesn't, he says, " I can't".
He's been incredibly whinny. Not sure if it's because baby sister will be here in a month or he is just learning it from a TV show. Yikes!
We took Jax to see Good Dinosaur and he did such an amazing job sitting still and watching the movie. I think it helps that it was 8pm and he was tired. I'm not too sure how I felt about the movie though. The dad dinosaur died and Jax got a sad look on his family and asked what happened to the daddy. I guess it's time I start teaching him about that stuff.
