|32 weeks and 3 days. 9/10/2013|
Weight : +19.5 lbs. I gained 31 lbs with Ryland...which means I will at least put on another 11 lbs if not more!
How I Feel - The same as last week. My hands are numb ALL the time. My belly feels super tight and pressurized, I really don't know how my belly can get any bigger without exploding!
Symptoms - Tingling/numbness/pain in my hands and swelling in my feet. My stomach is crowded by growing baby girl and I feel really uncomfortable after eating a large meal (I read I should now eat 6 small meals a day). The pressure also causes way more bathroom breaks. I've also noticed my hands and belly are itchy (apparently this is normal).
Cravings - Cheetos
Exercise - Hit the gym twice this week.
What I'm Looking Forward To - Week 39, only 7 more weeks to go! Also my baby shower is only 11 days away! I love Friday's now since I have them off, which gives me plenty of time to catch up on sleep with afternoon naps!
What I'm Not Looking Forward To - Stretch marks and hand pain.
Odds & Ends - Baby girl now has toenails, fingernails and hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz)! She also really likes to kick the right side of my body and she's constantly moving. I have another Dr's appointment tomorrow as I'm now checking in every 2 weeks. Apparently I might have another ultrasound too! Perhaps I'll be able to see how much hair she has on her head. :)
Now onto my unusual sleeping positions. I've noticed my hands go numb when they are parallel with the ground or angled upward, so I have to try and sleep propped up. There's been quite a few times I've had to switch to the couch so that I can sleep sitting up, with a pillow on either side of my body to rest my arms/hands on. I really miss sleeping on my stomach and even my side.
