Another week has gone by! I can’t believe in just two weeks I have my anatomy scan (but we are not finding out the sex until our gender party that Saturday). It’s been fun to see people due around the same time as me starting to find out what they are having, I can’t believe it’s so close for me, too!
Let’s compare week ten with week 17.
I feel like I look ssooo sickly and tired in my week 10 picture, because well…I was feeling pretty crappy! Let’s take a look at what is going on this week.
Symptoms: This acne is going to be the death of me….and round ligament pain still…even when I just power walk. I am not one of the lucky ones who can run miles upon miles with no issues! Also, I feel like I have to pee all. the. time. I start running. Have to pee. Doesn’t matter if I just went. Sinus issues/stuffed up nose and ears but not really a huge deal. Occasional headache, but not often. Round ligament and acne are really my two main ones right now. I know last week I talked about feeling lightheaded and weak in the mornings even after eating, and I am happy to report this ha gotten better! I am forcing myself to eat MORE calories in the morning and also eating more iron rich foods. Hoping it was just a phase!
Baby’s Size: Turnip
Maternity Clothes: Haven’t bought any more. Trying to make do with what I have but the amount of regular tops I can wear is getting less and less!
Stretch Marks: Still ok!
Sleep: Pretty good this week. Getting up on average once a night to go to the bathroom.
Miss Anything? Not feeling bad about caffeine. I would love a big starbucks, fully caffeinated iced coffee.
Cravings: Same. Cold and frozen things. Also, all the chocolate. All of it.
Aversions: Still not crazy about veggies (but really, was I before?) and large portions of any one thing, especially dense things like chicken or beef.
Looking Forward to: Feeling baby kicks! Hopefully soon!
What I’m Loving: That I finally feel like I look pregnant and not just chubby in the middle, and that while I still don’t CRAVE a ton of food, I am eating better and better!
Workouts: I took it easy the first half of the week because I had the big 10k on Saturday which was SUPER fun (recap tomorrow). My time was slow but I did it and am proud of myself! Back to walking with occasional running until this round ligament pain (hopefully) goes away.
QOTD: Did your round ligament pain ever go away? Who raced this past weekend?
