How big is baby?: Human size. I think the average is 6.5-7.5lbs or something, the size of a mini watermelon.
Weight gain/loss?: Less than +25… and I do a victory dance every time I jump on the scale at the doc’s office and claim a personal record. The nurses think it’s hilarious.
Stretch marks?: I’m gonna call them tiger stripes and I will blame my child for them for the rest of his life. Those damn things are all the way to my back.
Maternity clothes?: I wear 2 pairs of jeans, sweatpants, hospital scrubs, and a maternity tank every day. My normal shirts are starting to get too short (they’re maternity too).
Sleep?: I have good days and bad days.
Best moment this week?: Calling in pregnant to work (everyone is sick, I’m not risking it) and freezer cooking.
Food cravings?:Hmm.. Black beans tacos w/ doritos and milk (to drink). Scrambled eggs and orange juice (again, to drink). Basically, anything with protein in it. Oh, and a white chocolate & peppermint latte.
Movement?: Only when I’m sitting down. He’s running out of real estate and apparently prefers to chill on my rib cage, which is UBER uncomfortable.
Belly button?: Still holding strong w/ an innie… barely.
Labor Signs?: Period-like cramps mainly, not at any specific interval. I think I may have passed a mucus plug, but probably not. Lots of BH’s apparently since someone has finally explained them to me in a way I can understand. Oh and overall feeling of starving, but I don’t think that’s a labor sign, lol.
What do I miss?: My uggs, reaching my feet in general, sleeping all the way through the night, baths, walking somewhere safely without slipping, getting off the couch without panting… man, doesn’t this sound like fun.
