I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
hello sunburned legs and bump
We’re in the Florida Key’s right now on our last vacation before the baby comes. It’s been amazing down here. The weather is incredible and we’ve been having an awesome time cruising around in the convertible and relaxing by the pool since Thursday.
AND of course I got sick- typical clogged ears, sore throat, and stuffy/faucet nose. Shoulda seen me trying to pick out over the counter med’s that are okay to take while pregnant. Solid 15 minutes in the isle with handfuls of meds reading the ingredients list and double checking with the approved list on my phone. Made me miss just grabbing NyQuil, popping it open, and taking a huge swig before passing out. But now it’s all about being careful which ones won’t ‘effect blood flow to the placenta.’ Guess that’s important…
In lighter/funnier news, we were walking around Key West yesterday and near the end of the day I was whining how I had a cramp that I occasionally get on my right side. Stopping and waiting for it to pass typically helps but I was so hot and just wanted to get back to the car so I just kept going while holding my side. So I was joking to Price how I looked like Joey on Friends when he had the hernia.
Hey Timmy, I’ve got a surprise for you…
30 Week Bump Update
Current Due Date: 12/1/13- BUT I’m scheduled for my C-section on 11/25! Thanksgiving in the hospital!
Weight Gain: 7ish pounds? I’ll find out on Tuesday at my next appointment, you know, after I’ve stuffed my face with Key Lime Pie while on vacation
Stretch Marks: none 🙂
Belly Button: still glad there has been no change, but the countdown on taking my belly button ring seems like it’s fast approaching
Clothing: mix of maternity pants and regular pants with a belly band with maternity and regular tops still. so a total mix of stuff.
Cravings/Aversions: I feel like I have more aversions now than ever before. While at dinner on Friday night I was reading the menu for a great sounding salad loaded up with coconut shrimp but it had raspberry vinaigrette and I wanted to gag reading it.
Sleep: having some trouble falling asleep so I’m taking Unisom again
Mood: feeling cry-y over things more and more.
Movement: all over the place. When laying in bed we get a kick out of my belly shifting from side to side.
Milestones: currently on our ‘babymoon’
What I miss: boozy drinks. Sitting by the pool with virgin drinks is fine and all but man I miss the rum/vodka/tequila. And can we talk about how the virgin drinks here are $9 and reg drinks are $10. WTF!!!
What I am looking forward to: getting home tomorrow and seeing Kemper and the bunnies. As well as apple picking, maybe next weekend… hint hint.
