Before I get into my weekly update I'd like to apologize for the lack of posts this past week. Life got extremely hectic between traveling and a family emergency (all is okay now) but I will be back on track posting 2-4 times a week again.
Catch Up on Previous Baby S Updates!
What fruit/vegetable are you? Mango
Due date: 1/3/16
15 weeks VS 20 weeks at the Mets games
We are going to one more game this season and I will be 23 weeks at that point. I can't wait to compare these photos again!
How far along: 20 weeks, HALFWAY!!! Every Sunday is a new week for me.
Next appointment: September 1 for another ultra sound due to the technician struggling to see Molly's kidneys and ankles. I will admit it makes me slightly nervous they couldn't see them but I was assured this is completely normal and I am excited to see baby girl again!
Total weight gain/loss: 5 lbs
First time I have noticed an actual bump while sitting down and driving.
Naturally I had to snap a pic!
Exercise: I spent the week at my parents we did lots of low impact workouts. Mom and I went power walking 2 miles almost every morning, and I noticed I am somewhat slower these days and my heart rate increases much easier. I also swam laps in the pool and went on bike rides in the country side. Perfect workouts for a relaxing week!
Stretch marks: Nope!
Sleep: I was at my parents’ house for the week and slept easily through the night outside of my trips to the bathroom.
Food cravings: No new cravings this week
Food aversions: Same old, plain chicken and BBQ smell
Symptoms: Constantly peeing, my goodness I have never spent so much time going to the bathroom in my life. Also I have had some random bouts of heartburn but nothing too serious, hoping it stays that way.
Movement: YES! Molly has become quite the little wiggle worm towards the end of this week, now that she is getting bigger I feel her much more often mostly at night when I am laying in bed or if I make any sudden movements in my sleep she lets me know she’s pissed I woke her.
What I'm looking forward to: My very first prenatal massage this weekend! I haven’t had a massage since our wedding two years ago so needles to say my body is definitely ready for some rest and relaxation.
Best moment this week: Spending time with my entire family at the Mets Vs Orioles game. We had such a great night and although it was still hot it was much cooler than the game Eddie and I attended a few weeks ago.
