Bump Analysis? My face is definitely rounding out… Yikes.
Month/Trimester? 7 months [28 weeks – 31 weeks] / 3rd Trimester!
Fruit of the week? Aubrey is the size of an acorn squash… Whatever that is! She is about 15.2-16.7in long and weighs between 2.5-3.8lbs.
Development? White fat deposits are developing under her skin that are giving her more energy! Which explains how strong her little kicks are getting!
Movement? It’s not just kicks anymore, but I feel her rolling around now too. It’s the weirdest feeling, it almost tickles…. from the inside? I am not sure how to describe it! She also likes to get right under my rib cage which makes things really comfortable… especially when sitting.
Name? Aubrey Joy 🙂
Testing? I had testing done for gestational diabetes last Thursday. I have not yet heard back on the results. I’ve heard nothing but horror stories of how awful the drink tasted, so needless to say I wasn’t excited for it. I got the lime flavored sugar drink, and really it tasted like flat Sprite.
Weight Gain? 2 lbs this week… Totaling 21 lbs.
- Excessive pee breaks
- Losing hair at my hair line – so much for luxurious pregnancy hair.
- Tailbone Pain
- Heartburn at least a few times a week
Cravings? Chik-fil-a nuggets and Cadbury Cream Eggs. I don’t know if I’ll be glad when Easter is over, or if I’ll cry my eyes out when I can no longer get my hands on some of these!
Aversions? Buffalo Chicken Dip
Sleep? At risk of jynxing it… I haven’t had pregnancy insomnia lately. I’m so tired at night I am falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow! I’m waking up 2 -3 times a night to go to the bathroom, and during the day I feel EXHAUSTED. I haven’t brought naps back into my schedule, but it may be happening soon!
Maternity Clothes? Thank goodness I work at home… I’m trying to keep my purchases to a minimum since I only have 2 1/2 months left. I literally don’t get dressed to look like a presentable human being until we leave the house, and since I’ve officially outgrown my big t-shirts I wear Paul’s on a daily basis.
Exercise? Not much exercise this past week for this pregnant girl. I guess laying on a beach took priority 🙂 I did go on a few long walks, and I’ll be doing those more often. Paul thinks I’m getting to the point where if I go to the gym I need to be very careful, so he prefers if I just stick to walking. I think I’ll still keep the gym on my list though, and just watch my workouts and listen to my body. Paul will supervise I’m sure 🙂
Wedding Rings? ON!
Stretch Marks? No change here… Still using Burts Bees Mama Baby Belly Butter and BioOil.
Labor Signs? Braxton hicks are more apparent when I am active and walking.
What I miss? Bending over and putting my socks/shoes on without grunting. It’s attractive.
Looking forward to? A short work week! I didn’t even realize it was a short week until Monday, which always makes for a happy surprise! 🙂 We also have our hospital tour tonight, and we start Lamaze class tomorrow… because apparently I’m having a baby really soon!
