These past few weeks have been so busy that I keep forgetting to snap a weekly bump picture! I hate not having anything to share/compare my growth week by week. Someone please remind me to do one for 22 weeks!
Catch Up on Previous Baby S Updates!
What fruit/vegetable are you? Banana
Due date: 1/3/16
How far along: 21 weeks
Next appointment: Next Tuesday for our follow up ultrasound
Total weight gain/loss: 5 lbs
Exercise: Lots of walking and I was able to attend my favorite Kickboxing class back home while I was visiting for the weekend
Swelling: After a long car ride my driving foot swelled up due to extreme hip pain, thankfully I was able to walk it off at rest stops and once we reached our destinations.
Maternity clothes: Nothing new
Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases or Gifts? When I was visting my parents last week I spent entirely too much at the Carter’s Outlet as you can see below.
I also picked up three new books, two for me and one for Eddie.
Sleep: I had a lot of sleep trouble this week outside of the usual 3-4 bathroom trips I was dealing with lots of hip pain. I found I couldn’t stay on one side for too long without waking up with extreme achiness. Not fun.
Food cravings: Hot Chocolate, coleslaw and French onion soup
Food aversions: There were a few times this week I found myself wanting to try chicken dishes but I was too afraid that once I made it or it came to the table at the restaurant I would be instantly sick. I think this is progress?
Symptoms: Hip and lower back pain, fatigue and my bladder just seems to be getting smaller and smaller these days
Movement: Oh yea, Molly has become a little breakdancer especially after I eat! I cannot believe how much she moves around these days, it’s such a fun experience. I can’t wait for Eddie to be able to feel her as well.
What I'm looking forward to: Our ultrasound appointment next week. My mom is going to be joining us and it’s her first time experiencing an ultrasound! It’s crazy to think she never had one while she was pregnant with my sister or I, it wasn’t something that doctors felt were necessary for everyone at that time.
Best moment this week: Eddie and I made a visit to LI for a long weekend of visting our friends which was much needed for us both. I really enjoyed being back home, spending time at the beach and just relaxing/chatting with my best friends who I miss so much. Thankfully we’ll see them all again in a few weeks for a wedding!
