How far along? 31 weeks
Weight Gain? Don’t know the exact number but I’m sure I’m a few pounds heavier after feasting all Thanksgiving weekend! Hahah Kendal just keeps grabbing my belly and rubbing it going “Oh look at the baby!” Truth is, I think my bump was ½ baby, ½ stuffing and sweet potatoes for a few days! Haha
Size of baby? A head of romaine lettuce! Wowza
Maternity Clothes? Lots of sweats for me these days!
Pregnancy Symptoms? Not so much a symptom of pregnancy… but Kendal and I both got really bad colds this week :( I don’t think I have ever been so sick for so many days in a row but pregnancy gives me the immune system of a 90 year old! I even missed 3 days of work which I’ve never done before. Usually I just push through it but I was extra nervous about getting healthy again since it is for me AND a precious little babe. The good news is Kendal and I got to cuddle lots all day since we were both sickies. I mean, between blowing our noses and coughing up a storm! Romantic, I know. Hahah
Must have items?
- King-sized pillows on both sides of me while I sleep! I am really starting to take up our whole bed at night, but I am growing a tiny human so I think it’s fair! Haha
Cravings? I finally gave into my orange cravings and it was AMAZING! I already had a cold and was feeling crappy so I was like, eh… might as well! Plus I figured my body could use a little extra vitamin C. I ate one a day and only felt sick from it once which was awesome!
Anything making you queasy? I made these crushed potato things and ended up getting really nauseous which was no fun. But I don’t think it had anything to do with being pregnant. Kendal even got a little sick from them. I can’t figure out what was bad because it was basically just potatoes, butter and garlic and none of the ingredients were bad but something about them made us both super queasy. Bummer because they tasted pretty good going down!
Baby movement? Yes which I was extra excited about! I just felt nervous about taking cold medicine twice a day and it was such a relief every time I felt her move inside me.
Best moment this week? We have a crib!!! We got some killer deals over black Friday but the one I was most thrilled about was the cute little crib that is now all set up in her nursery :) It actually ended up being an early baby shower gift to us from Grandma King! She overheard us researching stores for Black Friday deals and offered to buy us a crib which was so so sooo nice. She insisted that it made it easier for her since she can’t get out the house much and doesn’t like online shopping! I really can’t say how extremely grateful we are for that gift.
Weird pregnancy moment? I guess getting a cold was the weirdest pregnancy moment of the week for me. I usually stay pretty healthy even when I am around other sickos and when I do get sick, it generally only lasts for a day or two!What I’m looking forward to? Looking forward to my doctor’s appointment next week! Is that weird to say that going to the doctor’s can be exciting? I just love hearing her little heartbeat!
