How far along? 28w1d THIRD TRIMESTER!!
Weight Gain? 20+ pounds
Maternity Clothes? Maternity leggings like 99% of the time! I'm telling you those Blanqi leggings are definitely worth the money, even though I got mine for 50% off, I am now convinced I would pay full price for the, especially the belly support pair.
Stretch Marks? None!
Belly button in or out? Flattening out more and more.
Sleep: Sleeping well is becoming a thing of the past. I still get a pretty decent night of sleep but I've been waking up in the middle of the night wide awake and tossing and turning a lot due to congestion. I have the humidifier and the oil diffuser going & I think they're doing the best work they can.
Best moment this week: I caught baby girl kicking on video which was awesome. She has been moving around a ton! I had another prenatal massage and I cannot tell you how beneficial I think those are. I also had my glucose test Friday and have yet to hear back but I think I passed because those are usually same day results. My mom and I went out of town Christmas shopping after my test Friday and I got almost all of my Christmas shopping done & everything wrapped/bagged the next day! Feeling very accomplished as I've never had my shopping done this early! I also moved into a B cup for the first time ever in my life (yay pregnancy boobs!) which was pretty exciting. I had to order a new winter coat too because my one from last year was just way too snug in the tummy.
Worst moment this week: The general exhaustion & aches and pains that I feel is really the only negative thing I can say right now & even those are tolerable. I've been so lucky to have such an uneventful pregnancy.
Symptoms: Fatigue, back pain, weight gain, some restlessness at night, other than that still pretty minimal as far as symptoms are concerned.
Miss Anything? I'll be honest, lots of people are getting alcohol for Christmas presents this year, I might be subconsciously giving it as gifts since I do miss it a bit!
Movement? Tons of movement, a lot more during the day than before now too.
Cravings? All the Christmas sweets are out in full force & you can be I've been indulging.
Queasy or sick? Noting at all!
Looking forward to? We have our first Christmas gathering this weekend coming up. It's about a 3 hour drive south and they're calling for a lot of snow that day so I'm really hoping we can make it as it's been a couple years since I've gone. Last year I was really down the day of this particular party because we had found out that same day that all of our embryos had arrested, I had just transferred 2 embryos a few days prior and was really hoping our other 5 would make it to blasts & to be PGS tested but they didn't. Christmas time last year was so hard, and it was really hard to participate all of the festivities! Our cycle was awful. It started off so promising with 16 eggs retrieved, but it turned out to be a complete disaster. It really amazes me at how much can change in the course of year! Now we have our miracle on the way! I can't wait to really be able to enjoy Christmas this year in a way I have never been able to!
