So, I haven’t done one of these once this time around. Figure now’s as good a time as any to start, eh?
How far along? 29 weeks. (tomorrow)
Total weight gain/loss: About + 14 lbs, give or take a pound.
Maternity clothes? All the maternity pants are belong to me. My “normal” winter coat is too snug. But, maybe it’ll get warm and I won’t need a coat soon? (BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA.)
Stretch marks? I think my stomach got worse. It’s hard to tell between Abby-induced and baby-boy problems.
Sleep: It happens. But only when Abby doesn’t wake up.
Best moment this week: Getting the house re-situated and baby boy’s room started.
Movement: This kid is throwin’ ‘bows like nobody’s business.
Food cravings: FRUIT. And Cherry Coke.
Labor Signs: No real ones. Braxton Hicks are back with a vengeance, but John the Midwife checked today and there’s no progress in the dilation front, so BONUS.
Belly Button in or out? Both. (And yes, it’s totally possible.)
What I miss: Wearing pants with a waist. Sleeping on my stomach.
What I am looking forward to: Getting our house “finished” and back on the market again.
Weekly Wisdom: Ikea is effing dangerous.
Milestones: Oh, HAI THIRD TRIMESTER.
We successfully (with my brother-in-law’s help) got our bedroom moved into the attic and got baby boy’s bedroom set up. We also successfully spent $400 at Ikea buying a new dresser & bookshelf (and other randoms) for Abby (since we stole her stuff for baby brother and our room.) Our house still needs a deep clean and decluttering, but we’re that much closer to listing again. After spending an hour putting the crib back together, I started thinking that if we did all this and the kid doesn’t even get to sleep in it before I have to take it apart again…I’ll be both pissed and elated all at once.
