Symptoms: I feel bad complaining but I just feel big and slow and tired. I know it’s just going to get worse, but we just have a lot going on in our lives right now trying to move and get settled, so hopefully once that happens I can rest more (physically and mentally!) and prepare for baby M! I noticed it is getting much harder for me to do simple things like get out of bed, stand up out of a chair, roll over in bed at night etc. Also my hips have started aching regularly and I am trying to sit more/put my feet up.
Baby’s size: Cucumber/large cabbage
Let’s compare, 20 weeks to 30 weeks…..
Whoa, baby! 10 weeks makes a big difference! And to think I thought I was “huge” at 20 weeks! Ha!
Maternity Clothes: Still refusing to buy anything new, although I am having a hard time fitting into shorts now. I wear the same 2 paid over and over, and same pair of denim shorts and capris. Trying to make them last!
Stretch marks: Nothing new but I don’t check super close
Sleep: Oy. So up and down. Two day ago I was wide awake at 3:15, finally got out of bed at 5:00 when I realized I was tired of staring at the ceiling. Then last night I actually had a decent sleep, so confusing!
Miss anything: Feeling normal, running, good sleep.
Cravings: Same (I’m so boring) carbs, chocolate, frozen things
Aversions: large meals, that’s about it.
Looking forward to: MOVING! Yes my friends, we will be in a permanent home as of next Wednesday!
What I’m loving: Pinning nursery ideas, so much fun to think about and I can’t wait to nest!
Workouts: Just walking this week, I try to go every other day between 1-2 miles. Also doing stretches and a few leg exercises like squats, leg lifts, etc.
QOTD: Did you go all out decorating a nursery? Did you make a lot of things or just buy stuff?
Anyone else craving frozen things? Maybe it’s just because it’s summer and has nothing to do with pregnancy!
