I have done only one other pregnancy update but I felt like doing another!
HOW FAR ALONG: 30 weeks. I went in last week at 29 weeks and the baby was measuring as if I was 33 weeks across the board – which means she is measuring FOUR weeks ahead!!! She is huge! My doctor is thinking we will induce me at 39 weeks because she is so large.. With Atticus he was so big that they were so close to doing an emergency c section and they dont want to have to do that, especially since she is bigger than he was at this point. But we wont know until I am 37 weeks if I will get induced or not!
HER SIZE: A large cabbage (according to my app)
WEIGHT GAIN: 22 pounds ……. this is the hardest part of pregnancy for me only because I am “putting myself out there” I have been told I look fat, I need to start watching what I eat, I should cut out carbs, I mean you name it! I was just at the LC Lauren Conrad runway show and I was sitting next to gorgeous (I mean really gorgeous girls) Olivia Culpo, Aimee Song, Ashley Tisdale, Chrissy Tiegen.. and girls were commenting saying I look “plus size” next to them or that I look like their mom. (all of those the girls I was next to were SO nice for the record, amazing women) I get more nice comments that sink in much more, so that is why it makes it easy to brush it off but still, people just weren’t taught manners. As a pregnant woman, a mom, and working with my husband to provide for our family I have enough to worry about and I think its sad that even while pregnant in this society we are expected to look a certain way. Sometimes I get confused when I read comments because I know I am puffy and whatever but I dont know I feel fine? I think that is all that matters. End rant. (please no sympathy (I promise I am not broken up about this!), however, if you are a person out there who is tempted to tell a woman how she should look… just punch yourself in the face for me, thanks)
SLEEP: I sleep fine minus having to wake up to pee at least 3 times each night!
SYMPTOMS: I dont get sick but I do get VERY tired and exhausted quickly. I also get really bad restless leg which probably sounds made up unless you are in the same boat and get it too… then you know how annoying it is!
FOOD CRAVINGS: Watermelon! Lately I eat about a half a watermelon a day haha!
STRETCH MARKS: I didn’t get any with Atticus and thought I was in the clear but I am starting to get tiny ones around my belly button! They aren’t red or terribly noticeable but I think once the baby comes out you will be able to see them more. I also haven’t gotten the dark line this time around, I thought I would since I did last year with A but nothin so far.
MOVEMENT: She moves what feels like, all day every day. She is just partyin in there.
NAMES: Obviously I would love to share but I am going to keep it a secret 🙂
That is about all! She is healthy and good in there. We have one more trip planned, we leave this Friday and then after that I think we will be home til baby comes. Unless I get stir crazy then we might do a road trip to Cape Cod or something. Who knows! My doctor said I can travel through end of October if I want, but I think we will hang around. I am getting so excited but it still hasn’t hit me that we will have two babies. Not kids, two BABIES! Sometimes when we are on the subway or doing something where Atticus is all over the place and I am like thinking in my head how I am raising a monkey, I imagine holding another one while doing what I am doing, and then wonder how the heck its all gonna go down! Ha, but it will be an adventure.
