Baby O’s developments: The layer of vernix (waxy coating to protect his skin) is getting thicker since he’s losing his body hair. His bones keep getting harder!
Currently Craving: Mostly sweets and fruit.
Weight gain this week: 0 lb (25.2 lb total)
Sleep & Dreams: I’ve slept pretty well, except for the hip pain and having to switch positions throughout the night. Only had to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom twice, woohoo.
How I am feeling: This week was a pretty good one! My back and feet pain has not been as bad. I didn’t have heartburn at all this week which is a miracle. It’s crazy to think that I will be a mom in less than two months. I’m finally feeling prepared since his nursery is basically ready. I’ll have some pictures this week!
Evidence of Pregnancy Brain: I grabbed a pot clean from the dishwasher and tried to put it into the fridge. Doh!
Movement: He’s been moving all the time. At night I feel around my tummy to see where he is and I swear I can distinguish his booty/feet/legs. But I may be crazy?
Appointments: I have my 34 week doctor’s appointment tomorrow. This past Wednesday was our last infant care class and it was not very good. We watched a stupid video about safety which had a lot of common sense stuff… like don’t put flammable liquids where your baby can reach them. Then one of the dads to be asked if she could demonstrate how to hold a baby, and she forgot to bring the doll to show us how to hold the baby properly. Fail.
Exercise: Worked out twice… a 2 mile walk on the treadmill, and Tracy Anderson Pregnancy DVD , month 7.
Innie or outie: Still an innie
Stretch marks: None yet, woohoo!
Rings on or off: They’ve been off for two days and I doubt they are coming back on. My hands are definitely getting more swollen. I’ve been thinking about getting a fake ring to wear.
Maternity wear: The usual – maternity jeans and sweaters. Almost all of my pre-pregnancy shirts are not fitting at all anymore, they are getting way too short. I might buy a couple more t-shirts.
Baby related purchases: Crib came on Friday and now the nursery is set up! Now I just need to wait for the Pack n Play to be delivered and we will set that up in our room for the baby to sleep in after he is born. Still need to buy the basics like diapers and wipes.
