Time just keeps on ticking…and here we sit with 7 weeks to go… give or take. 😉
What Baby Is Up To:
“Your baby now weighs about 4.2 pounds / 2 kilograms and measures approximately 17 inches/ 44 centimetres from head to toe. Your baby should already be getting ready for delivery by turning upside-down — her head should be pointing down.Your doctor or midwife will be paying careful attention to your baby’s position in the coming weeks — some babies do decide to turn back round again.
Your baby’s skull is still quite pliable and not completely joined, in part so she can ease out of the relatively narrow birth canal. But the bones in the rest of her body are hardening. Your baby’s skin is also gradually becoming less red and wrinkled.” From Baby Center
How I Am Feeling:
Same old story here — tired and heavy. LOL I am 33 weeks pregnant though, so I don’t expect any less. 😉 I am definitely counting down the days until I am done work so that I can hopefully get some quality napping time in before baby’s arrival. I napped in the morning AND in the afternoon on Good Friday — it was AWESOME.
How My Body Is Changing:
The belly just keeps on growing! ..Along with my face. I’m actually pretty self conscious with how the weight is beginning to go into my face now (just like it had before I did the 30 Day Shred/Ripped In 30 last year
). As hard as it is to take though, I just have to keep reminding myself that I AM growing a HUMAN and some extra weight was bound to go somewhere other than my chest and my belly. 😉 Thankfully it is for a VERY GOOD cause, and it won’t last forever.
And because it just so happens that I wore the same t-shirt.. a 10 week comparison! The shirt is almost too small now! LOL
Weight Gained: 2.2 lbs in the past week, making it 26.2 lbs so far — (starting = 122.8 lbs/current = 149 lbs)
Food Cravings: No major cravings this past week.
Food Likes/Dislikes: Only thing that sounds bad to me is a filet of salmon… everything else is fair game!
Baby Items Purchased This Week: Got the diaper that I had ordered the week before, but am trying not to buy anything else until after the baby showers. I have one shower this coming weekend and another the weekend after!
Clothes For Me: My mom picked me up a super nice blouse which I plan to wear at this week’s shower. 🙂
Workouts/Activity This Week: Made it out to see/work with Chelsea twice this past week. Aching for spring to actually arrive here so I can get my butt in gear and start doing some after supper walks.
Sleep: Sleeping SUCKS. I feel like I sleep in 20 minute increments and really just don’t get enough. The work days drag due to my lack of sleep at night and all I want to do come 5pm is go home for a NAP!
Movements: Our little lady is starting to become not-so-little anymore! Movements are becoming slower, but more pronounced as each day passes. She’s definitely good at making her presence known. 😉
Appointments: We head over to visit our midwife for an appointment tomorrow!
Nursery Progress: The dresser has arrived!! Can’t wait to share its makeover with you this week. 🙂
