Baby’s Size: Watermelon (19 – 22 in., 6.5 lbs.)
Symptoms: Getting some mild braxton hicks contractions. Nothing that is keeping me up at night, but definitely uncomfortable. I have also been having horrible back pain. I think he might have flipped over….
Weight Gain: 18.3 lbs (up 2.6 lb. since last week). I was proud of my weight loss last week, but my doctor wasn’t. I guess according to their records I lost weight the last 2 weeks. I think some of that is hard because it depends on the time of day that I go in. If it is right after a big lunch the numbers will be different than if it was right before lunch. When I weigh myself at home it is first thing in the morning so I think my tracking is pretty accurate. Of course, when they complained about weight loss I told them I was just eating healthier but somehow my body heard “eat more food” and apparently I have been doing that, lol. I am still proud that I am curbing some of my sweet cravings with apples (lots and lots of apples).
Movement: He loves to move late at night which has been keeping me up later than I would like…. At least I am getting caught up on my shows that have been filling up the DVR.
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: Today she was very interested in where he is going to poop and pee (she is potty trained now and SO proud of it). She tells me that she will help me change his poopy diapers so long as it doesn’t get on her hands. I think I need to make a recording of her saying that as proof when she decides it is too gross. Speaking of making recordings… she said something the other day about going to high school and that she would still give us hugs and kisses. My husband got her on video saying that he can walk her to each and every class holding her hand!
