How Far Along? 33w6d, due October 15, 2015
Weight Gain: 25lbs
Maternity Clothes: Making what works work
Nursery: Chair arrives on Friday and I'm going to do all of the baby laundry this weekend and really move in!
Movement: Non stop. The doctor said I could have 90 minute stretches where he would be sleeping, but really the only time I don't feel him is when I'm exercising. He is starting to run out of room, so when he has big movements the back of his head (which is still sitting just below my left rib) fully protrudes. It's crazy to to feel and see...
Symptoms: Heavy and tight stomach and I'm just much more easily wiped out these days. Kind of annoyingly, I find that I have a lot more energy for work and household stuff on the days that I don't have a workout.
Joel: We had the best time together last week. He took "The Expectant Father" on our vacation and finished it while we were there. It's a pretty antiquated book, I don't think he would recommend it, but it had a few good tips and we got a good laugh in at a few of the parts (like bringing poems and short stories to read to me while I'm in labor.......)
Workouts: Six-ish. 1 gym, 1 spin, and four 2-3 mile hikes/walks. My workouts are slowing down a lot. Moving fast or at a super high incline gives me some sharp ligament pain but I'm determined to just do something most days.
Mood: Vacation had me blissed out and fully relaxed.
Cravings: I was in the cereal aisle this week looking for All Bran to make muffins and it's an aisle I never go down because neither of us eat cereal normally. Well, Life Cinnamon caught my eye and I just had to have. Holy cow it's good.
What I Miss: I'm starting to get excited about the few things I'll "get back" after pregnancy.....mainly just runs, my clothes, and a very cold glass of buttery chardonnay.
Random Things: We start birthing class this week, meet 1 of the 2 pediatricians we are going to "interview", and are completing our registry this week!
