Crazy to think in less than three months, my little girl will be here! I am so eager to meet her and just love feeling her toss and turn! It’s funny though how I was 6 months a couple weeks ago, had three months left on the 13th, and now it’s 12 weeks (which is basically 3 months). How confusing is pregnancy! ha
HERE’S WHAT ELSE BABY BROWN HAS BEEN UP TO THIS WEEK:
- She’s about 14.5 inches long and weighs about 2 1/4 pounds.
- She’s starting to develop more fat so her wrinkly skin will start to get smoother.
- Her lungs are mature enough that she’d probably survive if she was born now.
- She can blink her eyes, and she has eye lashes!
AND HERE’S WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING WITH ME THIS PAST WEEK:
Workouts:. They’ve been pretty good! I did a cardio workout from the 21 day fix, two days of walking, two strength days of teaching, and another strength workout I did on my own.
Symptoms: Acid reflux majorly. Tums and I are BFFs. I’ve also been experiencing rib pain? Did anyone else experience this? I guess it’s from her growing and pushing everything up. There were a few nights where I was in a great deal of pain! My back hurts quite often, especially by the end of the night.
Movement: Sometimes it looks like she’s doing the worm in my stomach. You can just watch it and see her moving, haha! It’s so fun to feel her move, all the time. Of course, I would like her to sleep when I sleep but I love the reminder that she’s there in the middle of the night.
Gender: Girl <3
Food Aversions: Just staying away from Spearmint gum. Thankfully my aversion to tea may have lifted!
Food Cravings: Not craving too much. I mean, I’m on vacation so basically nothing is off limits. I will say the 2 batches of cookie dough I had frozen in my freezer before Deep Creek was a major craving! I know I can’t have it, but it really entices me.
Sleep: Eh ok. Some mornings I’m left awake for hours. Some days I can fall back asleep quickly. The last couple nights I’ve been up in the early mornings for at least a half hour tossing and turning.
Maternity clothes?: All but workout clothes, yoga pants, and pajamas.
Stretch marks? None so far.
Miss Anything? Boating. I really would love to get out there and wakeboard, surf, ski, tube, any of the above! It’s ok to take a break for her, but it’s hard to enjoy the boat so much and watch everyone else do it!
Fun & Weird Stuff From the Week: Being on vacation is the best from this week! Also, my cousin, Shannon, is a doctor and told us the position she is in. It was so neat to know exactly what I’m feeling! For instance, the large karate chops are actually her pushing her butt or back at me, ha! Her head is down, which it should stay, with her back and butt on my left side and hands and feet on my right side.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on/off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! I have been ecstatic about going on vacation and just having a relaxing time.
Baby Items Purchased: A cute little outfit that has pink pants and a white long sleeve onesie with ruffles. The pink pants sold the deal.
Looking Forward To: Our baby shower which is in a few weeks!!
