Weight gain: 30 lbs. I may stop posting this portion until the end because although I think I have come to terms that this is how my body handles pregnancy, it still makes me super insecure when other women gain much less.
Stretch marks: Just one, lone stretchie on my rib.
Movement: Tons, constantly. She is wild. I love it. Except when her feet get stuck under my rib cage. That really hurts. Maybe that's where that stretch mark came from....
Cravings: Lemons again. And ice. Iced water with half a lemon squeezed in is the best treat ever. Also, I'm phasing out the popsicles and trying to work in some Italian ice, lemon preferably.
Sleep: Really bad. I can only breathe on my left side, but I don't feel like I have to pee as bad on my right side. I spend a good portion of the night flip-flopping so I don't suffocate or wet the bed.
Best moment this week: Receiving a lot of support from my doctor, friends, and family after my
Gender: Sweet, sweet girl.
Labor signs: No actual signs, but I do feel like I'm about to have a baby any day now. I asked my doctor about all of the pelvic pain I have been having and she says it's normal for 2nd (and 3rd and 4th...) pregnancies. Basically, your first pregnancy paves the way for your body to birth all of your subsequent babies. The muscles and ligaments in the baby making region are much more relaxed after the 1st one so the pain/discomfort is more prominent for additional pregnancies. Michelle Duggar, how do you do it?
What I miss: Cute clothes.
What I'm looking forward to: Getting rid of this baby weight.
Weekly wisdom: Every trial or struggle is only a season and it shall pass.
Milestones: My belly button has popped and I have an outie.
