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.
28 days to go!
Last Sunday, we went out on a picnic with Kemper to enjoy the nice fall day on The Esplanade (my very belated September date day). We ended up walking 3.5 miles that day. I was so tired at the end of it. Well, so was Kemper since we napped together once we got home. In general, I’ve been forgetting how tired I get from being on my feet, even just being around the house at times can get me so tired. But this was so much so Kemper and I cuddled up and slept for a few hours. Bliss.
I also forget about not picking up heavy things. So I got yelled at this weekend when I picked up the 4moms Breeze playard and moved it so that it was in the zone of stuff to make its way upstairs. I moved it all of 12′ and got yelled at. At least Price is looking out for me 🙂
So for the most part maternity pants are stupid. Well, the ones from Old Navy are since the ‘stretchy’ boot cut jeans I got from them were not stretchy so they were basically impossible to get on without anything like belt loops to grab. So I have 2 pairs of pants to return to Old Navy and I’m thinking of swinging to Target to find something there quickly.
I’m thinking I need to rig something up for Halloween ASAP, even just to wear to hand out candy to trick or treaters.
I appreitate all the sweet emails and messages I received from my post about The Bean and its health issues related to its omphalocele. We have a lot to juggle in the first month while The Bean is in the NICU but we know we can get through it. It’s jsut though thinking about now, esp the part when they warn us we probably won’t get to hold The Bean
35 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: per 10/22 ultrasound, The Bean is estimated at 4lbs 14 oz and per 10/25 dr appointment I’ve gained 10 lbs total.
Stretch Marks: none 🙂
Belly Button: getting shallower
Clothing: I’m over wearing nomral pants with belly bands for the most part because of how the open zipper is irritating, more than the fit. Ordered more maternity clothes and hoping to make a Target run where I can grab another pair of maternity pants
Cravings/Aversions: sweets and thinking about chinese food all the time but then I know it will just make me thirsty, which means drink more water = more trips to the bathroom!!!
Sleep: so tired so I’ve been trying to get to bed earlier and earlier, or at least fall asleep on the sofa while we watch the World Series games.
Mood: getting anxious with 1 month to go
Movement: the baby shifts around a lot but I’m not feeling kicks since the baby is Frank Breech.
Milestones: we have picked out both the boy and girl name options. So now we jsut need to wait the month before we know which one we’ll be using!
What I miss: sleeping on my stomach, wine, not constantly drinking water = lots of bathroom trips, etc
What I am looking forward to: Price finishing painting the room this week! He got 2 walls done and will get the other 2 done this week. Then we are assembling the crib and decorating!!
