Weight Gained: 1.8 lbs in the past week, making it 32.4 lbs so far— (starting = 122.8 lbs/current = 155.2 lbs)
Food Cravings: No 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: We didn’t buy anything for baby this week, but need to start crossing off the last few things from the list this coming week for sure!
Clothes For Me: Let’s just say that I’m really looking forward to Saturday when I no longer need to worry about squeezing into my maternity dress pants for work! They still fit, but the tightness of all the elastic is starting to get pretty uncomfortable under my belly.
Workouts/Activity This Week: I went for a major walk on Saturday! We walked to our local Zoo for Free Admission day! Between the walk to the zoo, walking around the zoo, and then the walk home, I was on my feet almost 3 hours!
Sleep: Sleep? What sleep???? Again, can’t wait for next week when I can just nap whenever I want during the day! Here’s hoping I can bank up on some of this lost sleep before the baby arrives.
Rings: I am happy that I made it this far, but I sadly had to take my wedding band and engagement ring off this past week. Now that the weather has been warming up, I’ve been finding that my fingers and feet are starting to swell a bit. I was paranoid of my rings getting stuck, so I decided to just tuck them away in their boxes until baby is here. It’s sad and my hand feels naked, but better than having to get them cut off right?
Movements: This baby has not changed positions in almost 2 months now! She moves around on a pretty regular schedule always punching and kicking me in the same places. It’s going to be weird when she’s not in there anymore!
Appointments: My midwife appointment last Wednesday went well! Nothing major to report really. My blood pressure was still great, urine test great, weight great, baby’s size is great, baby’s heart rate is great and her head is literally resting right on my pelvis (which is why I’ve been experiencing some cramping in the past week). I also did my GBS test, so I have pretty much everything crossed for news of a Negative result tomorrow!
We had our last Lamaze class on Sunday (seriously, how have we already done 4 classes!?) and I can say with 100% certainty that is was money VERY WELL SPENT. If you know anyone in Durham Region looking for classes, I highly recommend Shelley from In Due Time Birth Services
she’s amazing! In our last class we learned all about breastfeeding and I left feeling 100% confident that I’ll be able to stick to my plan to exclusively breastfeed the little one until she starts solids in the fall. Overall, thanks to Shelley’s class, I actually find myself feeling relaxed and excited to just rock out this labour and delivery thing!
Nursery Progress: Although some progress was made, the darn nursery STILL isn’t complete.. *sigh*.. that is the main thing on the list for this weekend now that our classes are done.
