Baby O’s developments: The baby is now breathing the amniotic fluid. It can also sense light and pressure.
Currently Craving: Nothing too crazy! During the day I mostly want salty foods and at night usually chocolate. Luckily I made some brownies to tide me over.
Weight gain this week: .6 lb (3.6 lb total)
Sleep: This past week has been a little bit better sleep wise. I still wake up constantly, but go right back to sleep.
Dreams: Plenty of vivid dreams! The only baby dream I had this week was that I gave birth to a little girl, but she was extremely early. The doctor couldn’t believe that she was “normal size” after being born 5 months premature. She was so cute, with light brown hair and big blue eyes. As soon as we got home from the hospital, she started speaking. I was in shock and trying to tell Jay, but he was fixing our boat (which I wish we had!). I wanted him to go buy baby stuff since we hadn’t prepared for her to be born 5 months early, but he wouldn’t budge from the boat. So she told me “Mommy, I’ll pee like Bella” and she went to the bathroom on the grass. The end!
Symptoms: I had 1 headache this week, not too bad! Yesterday I felt tons of pressure in my lower abdomen, not sure if that’s my tummy expanding or what? Still no nausea at all, I’ve been lucky!
Emotions: Still even keel! No random crying for the past few weeks.
Movement: None yet, but soon I hope!
Appointments: None this past week.
Exercise: I’m sad to say, running might be done for me! On Thursday, I could barely run for 2 minutes without being totally out of breath. This week I’m planning on getting some prenatal yoga in. These were my workouts last week.
- Tuesday: 25 minute walk on treadmill (3.5 at 5.0 incline) upper and lower body weights
- Thursday: 45 minutes on treadmill. 2 minute run at 5.0, 1 ½ minute walk at 3.5
- Saturday: 3 hour hike!
Maternity wear: I love my new maternity jeans from Old Navy! They fit perfectly and are so comfy. Almost all of my tops are still good to wear though.
Baby related purchases: None this week.
