Total weight gain/measurements: 22 pounds…went on a little mini vacation with Adrianna and we didn’t eat very well. Back on the wagon:)
Maternity clothes: Found a few dresses that I really like, we will see which one looks the best with the sunset backdrop. Still trying to figure out a date to actually get pictures on. With my schedule, Rick’s and the photographer’s it has been a little tough figuring out what works.
Sleep: I am sleeping good still, when I am in my own bed. Went to the NC coast for the weekend with Adrianna. We slept in a bed that was not the most comfortable. With the lack of pillows and harder mattress equals tossing and turning most of the night!
Best moment this week: My sister visiting me! I needed it! It was so nice to have her here! Even though I had to work all week but it still was really nice for her to visit me! We got a hotel in Southport, NC. We spent a day on the beach just relaxing in the sun! Then on Saturday we took the ferry across to Bald Head Island, NC. It is an island that doesn’t allow any motorized vehicles on the island except golf carts. We got to the quaint little island and rented a golf cart. We rode the golf cart all over the island. On the furthest side of the island we got into the water. The waves were beautiful! The water was really nice and it seemed you could walk really far out before it would get deeper. Interestingly, Adrianna nor I felt an under toe. After that we drove around more just looking at the sites. I really felt like we were in the south because due to all the moss growing on the trees. It was kind of like a movie. We had lunch and then had to head back to the main land. It was such a quick trip. It is definitely a place where I could see our family going and renting a house for a few weeks.
Miss anything? Picking things up off the ground without grunting! Also, catching my breath:) walking in sand is difficult then add pregnancy, goodness! #struggleisreal
Movement: Tons of movement. I really love the feeling!
Food cravings: I have been craving peanut butter and raspberry jelly a lot!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: No, feeling a little more pressure in my pelvis then usual.
Symptoms: My fingers are still really swollen which makes my finger joints hurt. It is so weird because my feet haven’t swollen at all?!?!
Belly button in or out? Still, partially in and partially out.
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly, off…most days. I do try to wear my wedding band but even that is hard to get on and off. Fingers are the only thing swollen on me…weird!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, Adrianna helped me get my craft stuff put away. Not very likely that I will be making many crafts in a month, haha! It makes a little more room for his dresser and baby stuff up in our loft.
Looking forward to: I have another doctors appointment tomorrow. It is just a regular check up.
Days to go: 34 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a honey dew melon. He weighs around 5 1/4 pounds and is 18 inches long from head to heel. Because it is so snug in my womb, he isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number times he kicks should remain the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is not complete and he will take these next few weeks to putting on weight.
