It’s been 8 weeks since I’ve done one of these. My belly has grown quite a bit and being in the third trimester definitely has its own challenges. Back pain…more trips to the bathroom…sleep has become far more uncomfortable…clothes are getting tighter.
The upside? I know that I’m only 10 weeks or less from meeting my son. My doctor and I decided that because of how quickly Aria came and how far I am from the hospital, we would try to not go past the 39 week mark (May 29) to avoid crazy complications. Knowing that I have a short amount of time left has put my nesting mode into full swing. His nursery is coming together more and more. I’ve already washed and folded all his clothes. A few things remain and I’m hoping to have them all finished before April 29th so that way I have about a month left to relax and spend time with Aria before she has to share her mama. Been trying to cuddle her every minute basically…
A few bump stats as of right now…
How far along: 29 weeks
Size of our sweet baby: About the size of a butternut squash
Maternity clothes: Living in leggings, dresses, and some of my regular clothes that I just use the rubber band trick on to keep them from falling!
Gender: A BOY!!!
Sleep: Definitely uncomfortable. Especially since I have to get up at least once to go to the bathroom at night and then it takes forever to fall back asleep!
Food Cravings: Strawberry shakes. Like, I want them all the time. All. The. Time.
Symptoms: Back pain…Just feeling uncomfortable mostly!
Belly Button: Def an outtie!
I’ll try to do another one in a couple of weeks since not much really changes week to week besides the growth of my belly! =)
