How far along? 29 weeks
Weight gain/loss: Since I first found out I was pregnant, I have lost -8. Most of that was within the first 2 months of being pregnant. I am slowly gaining about a pound at each appointment.
Feeling: Tired/Exhausted. Being pregnant while taking care of an 18 month old is definitely taking a toll on me. And my sciatic nerve has been acting up the last two week, (and by acting up, I mean shooting pain throughout my butt to my ankle). There are days where I can barely walk because of it.
Maternity clothes? I have one pair of pants and two actual maternity shirts. The other shirts I wear are just plus size, so I can still wear them after baby comes.
Sleep: Eh… my hips are starting to hurt when I lay on them too much – so I’m flipping from side to side all night now. Plus the whole getting up to pee thing…
Food cravings: Anything salty… then anything sweet. But mostly I haven’t had any huge cravings lately.
Movement? Like crazy! I swear he thinks I’m a boxing bag. Throughout the day he’ll kick here and there…but once I’m ready to lay down and go to bed, is when he goes crazy.
What I miss? Alcohol… and I really didn’t drink much before. And not being exhausted all the time.
Best moment this week: Getting a kitchen rug for 20 cents at Kohls. It’s the little things that make me happy.
What I’m looking forward to: Taking Lilly to a Halloween event in two weeks. It sounds like it’ll be a blast and she’s going to look so freaking cute.
Next Appointment: Friday, Oct. 19th.
Milestones: Baby is between 15.2 and 16.7 inches long and weighs between 2.5 and 3.8 pounds (according to thebump.com)
