Bumpdate - Week 27
Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Total Weight Gain: around 14 pounds
Symptoms: Feeling much more exhausted on a daily basis, but holding off on the naps. This week the weather was warmer and I started getting some swelling in my feet. I'm also just feeling bigger and noticing it's just not as easy to roll around in bed or do most everyday movements. I'm sure that will continue to get worse until she's here.
Cravings: Nothing specific except for Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream after dinner
Sleep: some nights are good and some I struggle to get comfortable. I get super warm at night and notice myself waking up to move the covers around and readjust my body pillow.
Clothes: Pretty much all maternity with the exception of some tops and some dresses. Every time I'm not feeling that big I walk by a mirror or see my reflection and am reminded just how big our little girl is getting. Thankfully, I seem to be gaining primarily in my stomach so I'll take it!
Workout: Trying to get in more walks as it seems to help with the swelling in my feet and I feel much better on days that I am able to get a walk in.
Nursery: Really starting to come together! This week we got her mural painted and pictures hung. Now I will probably wait until after her shower later this month to add too much more but I love just going in there and sitting in the glider and daydreaming of when she's here.
Movement: All the time! It feels like she's doing summersaults daily! I've also started to feel her up higher by my ribs and notice she moves and kicks and punches all over my stomach. It's fun to feel her in two places at once and feel how big she's getting.
Best Moment This Week: Getting more done on the nursery, especially the painting by my dad! I just love how it's all coming together and can't wait to share it once it's all finished!
Missing: fitting in my normal clothes and being able to move around easier - this belly is definitely starting to get in the way
