Only 5 weeks until I'm done! Even though if I have the C-section it will really only be 3 weeks!
Total weight gain: 21lbs and I have an appointment next Wednesday so I'll know if I've gained anymore. Right now I would estimate another 3 lbs.
Stretch marks?: Besides Stretch Mark Gate (read about it here in Week 28) I haven't had any more pop up and the few I have on the underside of my chest have not grown or gotten worse. I've started using Body Spa Cell.U.Lift Firming Body Lotion every morning after my shower and starting using the Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter each night before bed (when I remember). The Body Spa Cell.U.Lift is a miracle worker!! I swear by it 100% and will definitely be doing a review in the next few weeks.
Maternity clothes:Each week I have less clothing to wear. There's some tops that still fit, but I don't want to wear them in fear of stretching them too much and not be able to wear them afterwards. My clothes are on repeat, all four outfits. LOL.
I'm still wearing my Old Navy Maternity Smooth-Panel Rockstar Jeggings I love these pants, they're all I wear and I'm so happy I bought multiple pairs!
Belly Button in or out?: Half and half right now, the top has been out for a while but I had a huge growth spurt Thursday night and my belly button is halfway out now. It looks so weird! I don’t think it will be out that far, but you never know.
My new best friend at night
Sleep: Blech. Some nights are good and others are the worst. I had acid reflux for the first time last week and woke up after a few hours of sleeping nearly throwing up. Gross right? If I only shared what I was dreaming about when it happened, it was hilarious timing. I've had it one other night from the first night, but it just kept coming back. I think she's just so high up I feel like she's forcing everything back up instead of down.
Worst moment this week: The acid reflux. Sucks! I know there's an old wive's tale about heartburn and hair, but I'm planning on our baby being bald. I didn't have any hair for years, but if she's born with some curls I'll love it!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
The headbands I ordered from Groopdealz came in! So cute!
Miss Anything? Sleeping through the night, especially knowing that I'll never have a full night's sleep again.
Food cravings: Flavored water, I've been putting sliced strawberries in my water almost everyday and it's delicious! Plus, water + strawberries + lemon = strawberry lemonade without all the calories. Yummy!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.
Have you started to show yet: Absolutely!
Gender: Team pink!
This is from a Daddy blog Message with a Bottle and this post-it totally cracked me up, so true!
Symptoms: Swollen feet/hands, acid reflux, hip pain, and leg cramps. No big deal right?
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Although I do feel like an arthritic grandma most days.
What I'm reading: I'm still reading The Happiest Baby on the Block and I also picked up Breastfeeding Made Simple- a suggestion from Meg of Meg. O on the Go.
Looking forward to: Our appointment to see our little girl and a babymoon/anniversary vacation next week!
