How I Look - Leading with my belly :)
How I Feel - Pretty Good! Occasional pressure in my lower abdominal area in the evenings, it's either round ligament pain or gas. :P I dont' think it's Braxton Hicks contractions....though what do I know?
Weight - +21.5 lbs overall.
Symptoms - Another week of little to no back aches. Yay! I do think my hip joints are loosening up. I've noticed that sometimes my legs/hips become tired/sore from walking around and my hips 'pop' when I sit.
Cravings - Cool ranch Doritos, cheese and cookies. Plus I've been wanting a Cinnabon all week! I'm determined to devour one today. :D
Exercise - Worked out Monday and Wednesday this week, plus several evening dog walks.
What I'm Looking Forward To - Meeting our little guy. Sometimes I'm in absolute awe about meeting this little person I (we) created and other times I'm in shock thinking how much things are going to change.
What I'm Not Looking Forward To - The 2nd part of our childbirth class this Sat, another 5 hours to endure. Oh, and the pillows were for us to use in the chairs because they were so uncomfortable. I thought we'd use them to learn techniques on or something...but no. I'm hoping this time we'll get to the nursing info, which is why I picked this class in the first place. Practicing Lamaze made me feel silly.
Odds and Ends - Sleeping on my side is the most comfortable for me now. Surprisingly enough I haven't needed any extra pillows at night. I have noticed I'm eating less and less at each meal, there's just not enough room in my stomach to hold a lot of food. I fare much better eating something small every 2-3 hours. I also looked at nursing bras this week and found out I shouldn't buy them until 2 weeks before I'm due (just in case I have to return them). I also found out I'll have to buy a size 38E for nursing! Holy smokes...not sure I'm on board for the ladies to be THAT big...I rather liked my pre-pregnancy size C's. And even with how huge they are now (D's), they still don't touch in the middle! pfft
