How far along? 32 weeks! 8 weeks to go, give or take. It sounds like it’s right around the corner, but that’s also 2 more months. It’s a loooong time when I’m already so uncomfortable…
Total weight gain/loss: 18lbs. So another 1.5lbs gained in the last 2 weeks. And I had been good this past week!!! Really annoying that I put on half a pound this week alone.
Exercise: Nothing. Unless standing on my feet for over 6 hours on Tuesday during photography class counts. I’m so so so tired from it still though. This next week is back to my normal routine, so hoping I can get some workouts in. I miss it. I really do.
Measurements: OMG!!! My waist grew 2 (yes 2!!!!) inches in this last week alone, now measuring 37” and the widest part of my belly is now measuring 42”!!! It’s a wonder I haven’t toppled over yet.
Maternity clothes? Yep.
Stretch marks? Still nothing, but the way things are going, not sure how much longer my skin is going to hold out.
Sleep: This is getting repetitive, but still sucks. This week was specially bad since I had to get up early (as early as 5:30 on Tuesday!) for photography class.
Best moment this week: I guess learning how to use my camera in manual mode pre-baby is it!
Miss Anything? Still missing sleep.
Movement: A lot of rolling vs kicking. Totally weird feeling the baby move that way!
Food cravings: Right now? Yellow Cab pizza. But it’s late in Manila, and I already had dinner so hopefully the craving is gone by tomorrow.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Heartburn still getting the best of me. And I got carsick a couple of times this week, having to lie down once I got home to avoid throwing up. I think lack of sleep hasn’t helped with it though.
Have you started to show yet: I look pregnant for sure now, no doubt. The receptionist in my building finally asked me about it, making it official that I look pregnant, not fat.
Labor Signs: Nothing – baby needs to hang in there for at least another 5 weeks!
Belly Button in or out? In, and I think it’s going to hang in there.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. I have a plain platinum band that is my “back up ring” (in case we ever go to a place where my usual diamond band is a no-no), and I’m tempted to get that resized.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Back to moody.
Looking forward to: Had to cancel my Tuesday doctor’s appointment because of the photography class, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s appointment now! Karl can now come with me, and he hasn’t been to the doctor’s with me since my 20 week appointment. I *think* we’ll be discussing birth plans tomorrow, so it’ll be good to have him there.,
