Exciting stuff, I know. To be completely honest, I really did spent most of Friday and some of Saturday recovering from Black Friday shopping. At seven months pregnant, it really took it's toll on me. We seriously had a blast and I didn't really feel the pain until I laid in bed and my back started throbbing. It's time to realize I can't do things like I used to!
How far along? 28 weeks
How big is baby? The size of a cabbage, 14.8 inches in length and weighs 2 1/4 pounds.
Total weight gain/loss: Still a healthy amount! (Minus the Thanksgiving binge.)
Maternity clothes? Either maternity clothes or Kevin's sweats. Very little of my old shirts fit without showing my mid drift which is not a good look for me.
Stretch Marks? Yes.Kevin thought the dog scratched my stomach because they are ugly and red. I hate them. No matter how much lotion I lather on, they're there!
Best moment this week? Not feeling guilty about eating all the Thanksgiving noms! Everyone should be able to wear maternity pants during the holidays. ;)
Movement? All the time, especially after I eat. He particularly likes to
hang out do jumping jacks on my bladder.
Food Cravings? Cereal and ice cold milk. Mmm.
What I miss: Everything? I miss running, having energy, wearing stilettos (I gave in to the pain and am wearing the shortest wedges I have to compromise.) I miss being able to bend over and pick things up without a struggle, getting off the couch with ease, rolling over in bed without groaning, and basically functioning as a normal human.
What I am looking forward to: Maternity pictures with Anni this weekend! If there's anyone that can tackle the task of making me look half decent, I know it's her. Can't wait to see her (and all my other peeps!) this weekend!
Nausea/Vomiting?: Not even a little bit!
Labor signs? Nope, I think I felt some Braxton Hicks a couple of times but nothing else.
Gender? Baby boy!
Belly Button in or out? Innie but definitely flattening out.
Wedding rings on or off? On even though I have sausages for fingers.
Sleep? Still sleeping through the night okay, without having to get up to pee but there's a lot of tossing and turning since I can't stay comfortable.
Weekly Wisdom: I already said it, everyone should have a pair of maternity pants during the holidays. You can eat three pieces of pie without having to unbutton your pants. :)
