Hello last week of my 20’s (and last year of my 20’s!) Fun fact: I was 28 weeks pregnant at age 28, and 29 weeks pregnant at age 29. How cool is that? It’s the little things.
This past week was quite the whirlwind, and not going to lie I have been a little overwhelmed. Still waiting for a few things to fall into place then I can share some fun news with you all.
Symptoms: This is the first week since my first trimester that I felt like my hormones were all over the place. I am sure a lot has to do with all of the thing we are going through right now other than me being pregnant, but I found myself just wanting to burst into tears a few times this past week, which was definitely odd because I was aware it was happening, but there was still nothing I could do about it.
Trying to pack up an entire house in your third trimester is not recommended. Talk about exhausted and sore! I almost fell asleep at the dinner table. My feet hurt like they do when I run a marathon, and my back and hips were throbbing after the two days we packed up the house. it had to be done though, and I am glad we got it over with, and I can unpack at a much slower pace. It’s been so hot here, and I have started noticing swelling in my feet. I am trying to elevate them, wear compression socks, and drink lots of water but haven’t noticed a ton of difference yet.
Still feeling lots of kicks, jabs and rolls, and I have another appointment next Monday with my doctor. This two week business makes me feel like I am always there!
Baby’s Size: Acorn squash (what the heck is that?)
Maternity Clothes: None, and hopefully no more. I don’t want to spend money on them at this point, so I apologize because you will see me wear the same things over and over for 2.5 more months!
Stretch Marks: Not that I can see, but I did have a nightmare this week that I got them all over my biceps and triceps, how weird is that?
Sleep: Sleep was really bad at the beginning of the week, but the past 2-3 nights have been much better. I am still getting up 2-4 times a night to go to the bathroom, but I am falling back asleep easier than I was before.
Miss Anything: Energy, feeling like “me”. The old me would have had no problem working hard packing up the house, and it’s been hard accepting limitations.
Cravings: Carbs and sugar. How healthy! I do eat sugar every day but try to limit it to a snack after dinner, and with my iced coffee.
Aversions: I just feel blah in general certain days to food, but then sometimes I am really hungry. I will never understand.
I did however eat a lot of cake last weekend.
Looking Forward to: Getting some things settled in our personal lives, which should happen by the end of July.
What I’m Loving: Setting up our newborn photography session! My birthday present from Bobby.
Workouts: Packing for two days was pretty brutal, then I rested Friday and had baby shower and birthday Saturday/Sunday, traveled home Monday, rained all day Tuesday. Hope to get in a walk today!
QOTD: Did you do newborn pictures of your baby?
What is the weirdest dream you ever had?
