We’re in the 3rd (and shortest!) trimester! Just 12 weeks (give or take – hopefully not give) left until we meet our little girl. I can’t believe it!
This week has been a loooong week. Both Tony and I had to work full days Saturday and Sunday, so it really has felt like one continuous week with no breaks. Womp. The stress and lack of rest is catching up to me physically. Oh, baby, my back hurts!
I have an appointment with a chiropractor that specializes in prenatal care on Friday and I cannot wait! She was recommended to me by my yoga instructor so I’m hopeful she is a good one. I have my (now bi-weekly) OB checkup on Wednesday this week, so I’ll double check with my doctor that its OK for me to go, but I’m pretty sure it will be.
Other than work and backaches things have just kept rolling along in our house this week. Not too much to report, so I’ll move on to my weekly stats:
How far along? 28 weeks + 2 days Total weight gain: Still at +7llbs according to my scale, but I’ll have an official update after my appointment on Wednesday. Symptoms: Heartburn, lower back pain, getting tired quickly. Stretch marks? Still in the clear! Sleep: Still doing pretty good, although I find myself waking up on my back and stomach a lot lately. How am I able to sleep on my stomach? Sorry baby, hope I’m not squishing you! Best moment this week: Feeling baby Y movin’ and groovin’ in my belly! Miss Anything? I’m ready to not have to think about everything I eat. I really just want a deli sandwich that’s not hot. Which is weird because even before I was pregnant I ALWAYS got my sandwiches hot. Guess you just want what you can’t have. Like margaritas, definitely want a margarita. If baby Y choses to come out before May 5th (Cinco de Mayo), I would be OK with that. Movement: Yup, feeling her kicks and punches all the time! Food cravings: Cheeseburgers. Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! Exercise: Prenatal yoga on Weds and Saturday and a 3 mile walk on Sunday. Gender: Girl! Labor Signs: Nope Belly Button in or out? Still and innie. Wedding rings on or off? On, but I took them to my jeweler to be cleaned and they said that the center diamond was off center so they had to fix it and I won’t have them back until the 6th. Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Looking forward to: My appointment on Wednesday and my birthday on Saturday!
Baby Y is definitely getting bigger (can’t ya tell?). She’s almost and 3lbs! I can’t wait to meet her in just a few short months!
