Baby O’s developments: He’s starting to shed Lanugo, the thin coating of hair he’s used to keep himself warm.
Currently Craving: Cheese, ice cream and yogurt. Maybe I need more calcium?
Weight gain this week: 2.6 lb (23.6 lb total)
Sleep & Dreams: Sleep the past 2 nights has been disrupted by heartburn. I still have to switch positions constantly to stay comfortable. But other than that, it really hasn’t been too bad. I’m never up for more than a minute or two at a time, and I’m having tons of dreams as usual!
How I am feeling: On Saturday we went on a crib/dresser hunt (the one I bought on sale at Amazon was crappy and we returned it) to a bunch of stores and it totally drained me! But Sunday I relaxed… alternating between laundry and seasons 1 & 2 of Downton Abbey (starting Season 3 tonight!). I’ve had heartburn the past 2 days, but Tums have helped. I definitely feel like I’m starting to retain water. I get some major indents on my legs at the end of the day from my socks. Stay away cankles! Energy has been up and down. But after 6pm, I feel like my body just wants to shut down. Oh, and my back hurts every single day, especially at night. I’m getting used to propping pillows around myself to get comfy on the couch.
Movement: He’s kicking up a storm! It’s crazy to see my stomach moving around so much.
Appointments: Had my doctor’s appt last week. Blood pressure and measurements were perfect. The doctor felt around my belly and thought that Wyatt was in the right position, head down, woohoo! She told me I could come back in 2 or 3 weeks. I’m going for 3 since that will be one less appointment before my last day of work on March 15th.
Exercise: Zilch (ugh!)
Innie or outie: Innie
Stretch marks: None yet!
Rings on or off: On… but I’m feeling swelling creeping in.
Maternity wear: The usual – maternity jeans and sweaters.
Baby related purchases: Ordered a new crib and dresser, I hope they are good! I really don’t want to have to return them. Also got a Sleep Sheep, heard these are great for helping babies fall asleep. It emits calming sounds for the baby like Ocean, Rain, Heartbeat…and has 2 timers to choose from.
