Total Weight Gain: About 16 pounds
Symptoms: Having more and more round ligament pain, especially when I go on walks. I am also noticing her up higher closer to my ribs which is making my back hurt a bit. With the hot weather we've been having I'm even more aware at just how much warmer my body temperature is at all times. I used to be cold all the time, and now I'm rarely anything but too warm!
Cravings: Definitely more sweets, but trying to eat more fruit instead of reaching for that ice cream all the time! I've eaten my fare share of melon in the last couple weeks and now that strawberries and raspberries are in season here, I'm sure I'll just be adding even more fruit to my diet!
Sleep: Still struggling to get comfortable some nights and find myself turning over and switching sides a lot, but usually able to fall back to sleep. While we were at the beach over the weekend the beds were pretty rock hard so that definitely made sleep much more difficult! Also, getting up at least once a night to use the bathroom, but it's getting easier to fall right back to sleep once I get back in bed.
Clothes: All maternity except for some workout clothes that are usually my go to when I get home from work. Even some of those are starting to get a bit tight! I really never thought about the amount of changes my body would make or all the clothes that would no longer fit!
Workout: With this hot weather I haven't been as good about getting out and getting my walks in, so trying to be better about that this week!
Nursery: Nothing new this week, except I ordered a wooden cut out of her name to go above her crib. I'll have to keep that good and hidden once it arrives, but I'm excited with how much is coming together!
Movement: She's constantly moving! I'm still waiting to catch seeing her little hand or foot kick or punch my stomach but definitely feeling it all over!
Best Moment This Week: Getting to see our little girl at our ultrasound! While I definitely worry more with my blood pressure history, I definitely don't mind getting extra ultrasounds because of it!
Missing: Fitting in all my summer clothes, and the occasional glass of wine!
