How far along: 29 weeks
I’m feeling: This week my ribs were hurting pretty good, the left side at times felt like it was on fire so lots of icing and trying different positions when sitting down to help ease the discomfort. Other than this I'm still feeling great so I really can't complain.
Total weight gain: 19 lbs
Baby Rote’s size: Size of a pineapple about 17in and 2.9lbs
This week: went SUPER fast! The weather warmed up to almost 40 degrees and gave me a little bit of spring fever and spring for me now means baby arrival so that is exciting and at the same time a little scary because I don't feel like we are ready! I made sure to get my FMLA stuff submitted this week at work - hooray for 12 weeks off!!
Maternity clothes: I got some beautiful new dresses this week that fit my growing bump very well, however they are just normal size small so I'm excited I can wear them after baby too!! Really hoping I can hold off buying "maternity" clothes - again thank goodness it is legging season!
Sleep: still getting all the sleep I can and making sure to sleep with a pillow between my legs to help with the hip issues I was having last week - crazy how that makes a world of difference!
Best moment this week: being able to go for a few short walks outside without being scared I'd fall on the ice - nice to get some fresh air that didn't burn my lungs.
Also I went home for lunch on Thursday and forgot how amazing natural light is during the day - think I need to make this a weekly thing for all the future bump photos!!
Movement: Felt more and more this week as baby is filling out. Baby is more responsive too, I can push on one area and then I'll feel it poke somewhere else - probably just looking for room in there!!
Food cravings: Hard Candy - I couldn't get enough life savers this week at work especially the white ones which I think are pineapple flavor
Food aversions: nothing
Belly button in or out: still in/flat
Looking forward to: finishing the nursery and Spring!
