How far along: 31 weeks pregnant! Due September 27th. The THIRD TRIMESTER IS HERE!
Total weight gain: Unknown:) Read more about why I changed this here. Although, at the doctor’s office this week I accidentally saw my weight on the scale, and it’s already to one pound more than I gained my entire pregnancy with Winston. Ha. Definitely not doing that again!
Maternity clothes: I think I have ONE bottom left that fits because it is so low rise. Luckily, summer is the season of loose tanks and maxi dresses- so I’ll be just fine:) I also bought a few cute pairs of stretchy shorts that will make me feel better about not wearing constant leggings:)
Stretch marks: Still nothing happening yet:) But I am using a combo of old and new tricks to keep them away. The Mama Mio oil I have used with the past two pregnancies has kept me almost completely stretch mark free, so I’m sticking with it. But I am also adding in a drop of Gentle Baby and Frankincense Young Living essential oils.
Sleep: Feeling that third trimester energy drain lately. The heat and two crazy crazy kids don’t help. I am trying not to complain because I KNOW I will be getting much less sleep once she is here. However, I’m not getting too much sleep currently. I sort of expected this, one of my friends had warned me that I wouldn’t be able to sleep comfortably for long. She gave me some advice recently and told me that maybe I should think of getting an adjustable bed to see if that can help me find a comfortable sleeping position. Apparently, when looking for best adjustable beds check out simplyrest for reviews. Perhaps I’ll have to think about getting one of those beds.
Best moment of this week: Getting back home! We are officially back in our home after a month of being away. The house is a total disaster because of the bathrooms still not being done, the closet still being worked on, etc. So normally when I get home I love to get everything clean and organized right away, but I can’t even do that right now if I wanted to!
Miss anything: Beer. Although Jeremy bought be some Odouls and I treat myself to one every now and then.
Movement: Every day now- and it is SUCH a blessing. She seriously moves around all the time, and I can’t get enough of it! LOVE this part of pregnancy.
Food cravings: For the first time, nothing really. WOAH!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nada!
Have you started to show yet: Without a doubt!
Gender: A sweet precious baby GIRL!
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks and round ligament pain is intense these days.
Belly button in or out: Its out, ALL the way now.
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy:)
Looking forward to: Going on a little staycation this weekend with a bunch of friends. SO excited for time at the pool, away from kids, sleeping in, all the good things;)
