What Fruit are you // a cabbage // a jicama (which is what... I wish I knew..)
Due date // March 28th
How far along // 30 weeks---weeks are starting to run together y'all... thus the two weeks in one post. // 32 weeks
Next appointment // like two weeks from now.. // Tuesday
Gender // it's a girl!
Total weight gain/loss // in between appointments so your guess is as good as mine...
Swelling // none.
Maternity clothes // when I have to wear "going out" clothes... so like twice a week. // down to maybe once a week
Belly button // in
Sleep // has not been so hot since Monday... Grace is finally sleeping in her own bed, which is GREAT. But I'm up like once every hour checking on her and making sure she is still breathing. It is like I have a newborn all over again. Which is totally fun. // AWFUL. My hips hurt ALL the time. Getting comfortable is absolutely next to impossible. It's the worst.
Food cravings // Zaxby's and sweets. // Chocolate still
Symptoms // feeling large. As for the Gestational Diabetes fun - I turned in a weeks worth of numbers and my OBGYN (whom I LOVE, seriously) called me and gave me fantastic news! I don't have to monitor everyday. She wants me to test the week before my next appointment, so I have fresh numbers to bring her.. but otherwise we are basically just monitoring from a distance. Because of the fact that I was induced with Grace because my numbers were abnormally high the last week of my pregnancy, I am totally okay with this! I don't want to miss the signs my body gives off. // Heartburn. Almost every night now. Typically just have a light snack before bed with a big glass of milk and it helps me.
Movement // still very active after meals. Grace sits with me almost every night as she winds down for the evening.. this usually involves me sitting in a recliner and her between my legs, Baby B loves this! She is so active when Grace is leaning against my belly. // Still making her presence known, often. When I sit in a chair for too long without reclining, my ribs ache. She's getting bigger but not necessarily kicking me in my ribs like Gray did. Thank goodness!
Labor signs // none.
What I miss // regular clothing. I miss shopping for myself on sale racks and not having to find maternity clothes on sale... because that never happens. // Motivation, energy and being able to keep up easily with Grace.
What I'm loving // the theme I've selected for her room. When we moved in the third room upstairs was painted this horrific baby pink.. which does not match Grace's room decorations AT ALL. But instead of putting in a request to repaint this room, I am just going to work with it and make it look less gaudy.. so I am doing baby pink, gold and white with deer antlers being a large part of the room. I can't wait to see all of the elements come together. // That we got maternity pictures taken. Haven't seen the result yet, but should soon! (The above is a shot from Grace's two year photos.)
What I'm looking forward to // besides Grace's second birthday - I am looking forward to seeing one of my best friends from home next weekend in Nashville! She is two weeks ahead of me in pregnancy and it's going to be so nice to see her! // Next weekend when we get some visitors from Georgia for the four day... we can't wait to see you Nick, Abby and Logan!
Best moment this week // snow days with the mister! It was already a 4 day thanks to MLK day.. but then turned into a two day with two snow days. And it really snowed!! // Getting in our tax return! Such a good surprise to wake up to. Haha.
