Weight Gained: 2.4 lbs in the past week, making it 28.8 lbs so far (hoping to finish at or under the 35lb gain!) — (starting = 122.8 lbs/current = 151.6 lbs)
Food Cravings: I didn’t really have any food 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: Again, we refrained from purchasing anything for baby this week because she got spoiled yet again by family and friends!
Baby Shower: Baby shower #2 was Saturday at my parents’ house, hosted by my awesome MOM! xo It was SO nice to get to see all of the lovely ladies from my family before the little one decides to join us. She was VERY spoiled yet again and well, I’ll just say this… I am going to have one of THE BEST DRESSED kids around!!! I really can’t wait to put all of the amazing gifts to use!
Clothes For Me: I officially no longer have any coats that I can close comfortably. My go-to outerwear these past few days has been my jean jacket (opened) with a scarf. Please let it at least stay this warm until baby gets here!!!
Workouts/Activity This Week: I managed pilates one day this past week, but was really sore in the hip afterwards… and I still say laundry day needs to start counting as a workout. I must go up and down 2 flights of stairs over 10 times on laundry day! I was wiped by the end of the day Sunday!
Sleep: I am now at the point where I can’t remember when I last had a good sleep… and I think I’ve accepted the fact now that i probably won’t get a good sleep again for a VERY LONG TIME. I just can’t get comfortable in bed anymore which definitely sucks. SO glad I’ll be off work for a couple of weeks before my due date so I can hopefully get some quality nap time in.
Movements: The little lady seems to LOOOOVE pushing out her butt at the top of my belly, all while pressing her feet out to my right side. That seems to be her go-to move all the time. 😉 She’s nice and busy on a regular schedule, so that makes me happy.
Appointments: No appointments last week, but tomorrow marks the first of my weekly appointments until baby girl decides to join us! (I can’t believe we’re already at that stage!)
Lamaze Class: Sunday morning was our second Lamaze class and again, I walked out feeling even better about my decision to try and labour/deliver naturally. We learned about, and practiced, many different labour positions (many of which we wouldn’t have thought about). A lot of them felt great when we practiced, so here’s hoping they work on the big day!!
Nursery Progress: The nursery is still in shambles trying to organize now after 2 baby showers. We are planning a trip to Target this weekend to get some of the last few items – ie. sheets, a change pad cover, a Boppy cover, etc… so hopefully we’ll be ready to show off the finished product soon!!!! In the meantime, I’ve been working on another little DIY project for her room.. here’s a teaser. 😉
