Baby is the size of: a grapefruit/an ear of corn depending on whom you ask. She’s about 11.8 inches long and 1.3 lbs.
Total weight gain/loss: + 15.5 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yep.
Stretch marks? None yet. Purchased some MamaMio Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Oil, Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter, and OMega Super-rich Body Cream. Smells and feels amazeballs.
Belly Bump: Steadily growing.
Sleep: No difficulty falling to sleep. Doing my best to sleep on my left, but that just happens to be the least comfortable position.
Best moment this week: The end of it. This was a crazy busy week, so it’s nice to finally have a break.
Miss anything? Not my old kitchen or bathroom. They are currently being remodeled. We may not have a working kitchen, be down a bathroom, our dining room is full of the contents of our kitchen cabinets, and there is sheet rock dust on everything, but I have no complaints. Someone else is doing all the work, and I’m getting a beautiful home out of it!
Gender prediction: It’s a girl.
Names: It’s a surprise.
Symptoms: I’m a freaking mess lately. Literally. Normally, Travase is the klutz in this household, but lately I’ve taken over the role. Napkin in lap is useless, because my belly catches everything. Physically, I feel great. Except for my feet. It’s hard to stand/walk for long periods of time unless I’m wearing tennis shoes or house slippers. Mentally, I’m a stress ball and exhausted, but it might have little to do with the pregnancy. There’s a lot going on right now.
Cravings: None. Although this week I’ve been wanting a second cup of my Half Caff coffee.
Movement: She’s most active when I’m sitting and if something is pushing into my stomach or side.
What I am looking forward to: Kitchen and bathroom remodeling started on Tuesday, Feb. 26th. It’s coming along. A bit of an issue with the painter, but I think we’re done with him. Now we wait on the countertops. Also looking forward to “Spring Break” from grad school. A week without classes? Yes, please.
Next appointment: March 11th. Glucose screening.
