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.
People we are now under the 50 day countdown. less than 50 days!!
It’s crazy to think that we are only 7 weeks away from meeting our baby but it’s true. Also, crazy to think of all the stuff we have to do before then. The baby’s room needs the most work but we’re not really worried about it since we know the baby will sleep in our room for a while anyway.
I didn’t realize how tired I was from the week of crunch time leading up to the fashion show (esp. considering I didn’t feel like I pushed myself, unlike last year’s 3am late nights) and ultimately that ah-mazing night, until Friday midday hit and boom I was done-zo. Both Price and I napped on Friday since we left work early and I pretty much was zonked out on the sofa all day, until I stumbled into bed.
While my sugar test results were great, my iron was on the low side. So my midwife said to up my steak intake and get an iron vitamin. Done and done. Having a steak salad for dinner tonight!!!!
Speaking of dinner, my sister got us a week (3 nights actually) from Blue Apron meals. I picked it to arrive yesterday so this week we’re gonna have Steak Salad with Chicory, Curried Chickpeas, Walnuts & Apples, Braised Chicken Thighs with Caramelized Peppers & Onion over Creamy Polenta, and White Fish “En Papillote” with Freekeh. They send you EVERYTHING you need. Seriously, everything. They sent us the parchment paper we need for the fish dinner. It’s such a cool concept. My sister got it for us to make having a healthy dinner easier for us to juggle now. (Can’t survive on mac and cheese and cereal only) Price and I are looking forward to continuing it and having it arrive every few weeks so we get to try some new and healthy dishes. noms.
32 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: I dunno. I didn’t care to get on the scale this week as I apparently had the strategy to “Eat Everything in Sight” for Friday’s breakfast. Let’s recap breakfast, shall we… 1/4 of a blueberry scone, slice of a gluten free apple breakfast cake, 1/2 a sausage biscuit from Burger King, and half a cheesy bagel with veggie cream cheese. However, I didn’t eat much Thursday before the binge nor afterwards on Friday. Whatever.
Stretch Marks: none 🙂
Belly Button: starting to get shallower, but the ring is still in. I feel just stubborn about taking it out. It’s dumb.
Clothing: still a big mix of stuff… maternity pants and regular pants with a belly band paired with maternity and regular tops.
Cravings/Aversions: We had the pizza I was craving from Prince’s Pizzeria yesterday. It’s just so damn good. However, the thought of eggs, esp scrambled ones, has me gaggy.
Sleep: sooo tired. I can’t wait to nap later on today.
Mood: good, but certain things has me ready to start the waterworks and not stop.
Movement: I feel the big gestures/shifts but there isn’t too much movement as we were updated that the wee one is still Frank Breech so there isn’t too much kung-fu going on in there, The Bean is just hanging out folded up in half.
Milestones: had a tour of the hospital on Wednesday
What I miss: wine. damn I wanted wine so badly at the fashion show after party. Actually, I wanted to rip the whiskey on the rocks out of my friend Adam’s hand but I managed not to. Less than 50 days…
What I am looking forward to: my baby shower is this upcoming Saturday
Comparable Fruit/Veggie Size: Squash (Average size: 15.2 – 16.7 inches head to toe, 2.5 – 3.8 lbs) via The Bump
