Strapless Maternity Maxi via A Pea in the Pod 2010
Also of note: I "turned" 30 weeks on Friday, April 13th, so this post is a bit overdue.
Total Weight Gained?: Nearing the 30lb mark, if I haven't already hurdled beyond it. At my last visit, my doctor asked, "do you eat a lot of carbs?" And I had to do everything in my power not to lash out and smack him upside the head. Yes, fool, I do love some carbs. However, my family eats rather healthy and I do chase a toddler around all day. I gained 49lbs. during my pregnancy with Carter and no one batted an eyelash. It may have taken a year, but I lost it all shortly before peeing on yet another pregnancy stick. I gain 30lbs. with M2 and suddenly we need to have the "weight talk?" Pish posh.
Sleep: Other than having to get up a couple of times per night to tinkle and a couple of times to switch positions because of the stiffness in my hips, it's not too bad. Or at least that's what I keep telling myself.
Please, the next time my husband begs for Baby Number 3, remind me of the horrendous hip pain and atrocious heartburn. I somehow overlooked both of these things as I eagerly hopped aboard the Baby Number 2 train.
Best Moment of the Week? Seeing M2's sweet little face during my growth scan and learning that he's in the 50-something growth percentile and right on track to be an "average-sized" baby. Keep in mind the doctors said the same thing about C-face and he was born 9lbs. 10oz. Also, we picked a name AND a birthday! It was quite a week around these parts! M2's initials will be MAM and his birthday (if all goes as planned, of course) will be 6/18/12!
Movement? All the time. It's actually quite Alien-esque to watch feet and knees roll across my belly.
Food Craving? Really, really ice cold drinks in my Tervis Tumbler. Iced coffee. Smoothies.
What I miss? Once again, in the spirit of full disclosure, I miss non-pregnant clothes. Being skinny. And drinking and ice cold beer (or three). I also miss being able to walk up and down stairs without huffing and puffing.
What I'm looking forward to: The nursery has been painted and the chair rail has gone up! Next up? The rail will be puttied and primed and painted and Carter's crib will come down and be moved to the new nursery! This means it's ALMOST Big Boy Bed time! Hopefully sometime this week we'll begin the transition! Eeeeek!
