How Big is Baby?! I get these lovely email updates from thebump.com, so I went into the app to put together this little tidbit about the baby this week.
Total Weight Gained: 18 pounds from my 8-week appointment.
Maternity Clothes: I am thinking I for sure need to find some larger shirts (or yoga pants with a full panel for the belly!). Sometimes I feel like my big ol’ belly hangs out (but just when I wear my non-paneled yoga pants!) so the bigger shirts will be a benefit beings I’ve still got 12 weeks left.
Sleep: I’m not sure this area in pregnancy is ever going to improve. If I’m not sleeping because I’m up peeing or stretching out a leg cramp, I’m not sleeping because my husband is seriously the world’s worst bed-hog!
Symptoms: Constant peeing (like literally 5-minutes after each time); leg cramps; pelvic pain that feels like I’ve been bruised permanently; and most recently, high blood pressure.
Food Cravings: No new cravings.
Aversions: Nothing new here either.
Workouts: I’ve been trying to walk at least twice a week, however, I feel like I’m slowing down my walking partner. I just am not moving as fast as I used to so it has deterred me from wanting to go out there. That and the pelvic pain doesn’t help much either.
Milestones: I passed my glucose test at my recent doctor’s appointment!
Baby Items Purchased: We found ourselves at our local street fair a couple weeks ago and ended up buying baby girl a minky fleece blanket (pink & gray chevron) and ordered her a winter hat made out owl patterned minky fleece as well (which showed up less than a week later!).
Gah! This little stuff is so stinking adorable, I love it!!
