Baby is the size of a: Coconut. That seems HUGE to me!
Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016
Total weight gain: I go to the doc this week, and have really avoided the scale. Not for any reason – I’m very much over the fact that pregnancy leads to weight gain. It is what it is. I’m just not obsessing over it.
Sleep: I am definitely definitely sleeping, but still going to the bathroom constantly. I got a suggestion a while back, that perhaps I should consider drinking less water. I will classify that was potentially the worst advice I’ve ever gotten lol.
Best moment this week: My brother and Austin painted the baby’s room on Saturday, and the color ended up being amazing. My mom asked me “who helped you pick that out” and I was like…::side eye:: ME!
Food cravings: Ew…food. Lol, for me pregnancy has never been a time of insane hunger and appetite for me. The smaller my stomach physically gets, the less I can eat, and if I try to force it, I either get reflux, or this feeling like there’s food sitting in the bottom of my throat. The key is small, frequent meals, and I generally avoid foods that would irritate my stomach in real life. Fried things and dairy in particular are a no for me.
Food aversions: See above. 🙂
Symptoms: Eh. Nothing too drastic. I’m telling you what, the chiropractor is KEY. If you’re thinking about getting pregnant, put your little money aside so that you can go to the chiropractor and get a prenatal massage. Pregnancy isn’t meant for you to feel like shit 24/7 for the duration. There are some enjoyable bits. Like my skin finally looks really nice. There are others, but that’s the first one that came to mind.
Looking forward to: The pool this week. I need to get in it. The baby is gaining weight, and I need to get some of this weight off. You never realize the difference a few pounds can make, or a few pounds in a certain area of your body, but it definitely shift things.
