Gender: It’s a Boy!
Food Cravings: Fruit, Chocolate Milk, and Chicken Nuggets! Yes, my cravings and eating habits are really starting to remind me of foods that a 2-year-old would eat.
My husband definitely made fun of me for this snack:
Food Aversions: Nothing that I can think of.
Movement: Yes, every week he’s more active than the last. Justyn and I can spend hours watching the baby move my belly all over the place!
Maternity Clothes: I got a new dress from Target, see picture above!
Worst Moment of the Week: I hate to complain about being pregnant, because it’s truly such a blessing and I feel so fortunate to have had such a healthy pregnancy to-date. BUT, I’m really starting to feel like total crap. I’m getting so uncomfortable and I’m constantly tired. I haven’t slept well for weeks now. Every night it’s a struggle to find a comfortable position plus I’m making 4-5 trips to the bathroom.
The worst of my symptoms include dizziness/feeling faint accompanied by body aches. A few instances have been so scary that I’ve actually called my doctor’s office. They have reassured me that this is actually very common for this stage in pregnancy. Plus considering my anemia and unstable blood sugar levels, they say it’s really no surprise that I’m feeling this way. The remedy: more rest and relaxation. It’s time to slow myself down, but it’s so hard… I always have so much I want to get done!
Best Moment of the Week: I somehow managed to squeeze my 34-week pregnant body into this two-piece swimsuit:
Looking Forward to: We’ve got another doctor’s appointment on Thursday! I always look forward to checking on the baby and making sure he’s still doing well. Plus, we just love our doctor. She always puts all of our worries at ease and usually finds a way to make us laugh about something or another.
Best Quote from the Daddy-to-be: About my new dress, at first Justyn said it looked comfortable… then he continued to say “When you’re not pregnant any more, we can use that dress as a parachute!”
Newest Baby Item(s): The bedding that we ordered from Carousel Designs arrived!
