(March 24 – March 30)
The third trimester is here!!!
Weight gained: 10 pounds
- Thankfully not quite as emotional as last week. Phew!
- My hips/pelvis were a little achy this week when I walked. It was such a weird feeling! Nothing horribly painful, just enough to be noticeable.
Movement: All day long! I can’t wait to see if this will continue to be true after he/she is here. And Kristy and Kelly got to feel kicks, too! One kick was so strong that Kristy even asked, “Was that you or the baby?”
Food Aversions: Nothing new.
Food Cravings: Still the normal cravings, and also craving Diet Coke (from McDonald’s, of course) like crazy. I’ve been drinking Diet Coke about 3 times a week, and I’m trying not to beat myself up too much about that. My doctor said I could even have one every single day, if I wanted to. I was telling my sister, it feels kind of sad/pathetic, but it makes me unbelievably happy on the days I know I’m going to treat myself! And you know how important it is to treat yo self.
Sleep: Like a rock.
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Miss Anything? Nope.
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: Having my sisters feel the baby kicks! I LOVED feeling their babies kick when they were pregnant. And I felt comfortable enough to always touch their bellies, since we’re family. 🙂 I know some pregnant women are very much “Don’t touch my belly!” but if I know you, I’m totally okay with it (and want you to!). I can’t say it will be the same after the baby, of course – so get it while you can, folks.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: A little irritated this week, but it was mostly due to work stress.
New Baby Items: Yep! We’ve been keeping an eye out for dressers on Craigslist/Marketplace and finally found a great deal this week. As nice as brand new dressers are, it’s crazy to think about $400/500 on a dresser for a baby. I really like this one, too! We’re planning on using it as a changing table, as well.
Looking forward to: Painting our nursery this weekend (hoppppefully)! With our downstairs still in shambles since our pipes burst in January, it’ll at least feel good to have something done in the baby’s room. I’ll post pics of the finished product!
