What is Baby K up to? Now about the size of a papaya at 10.5” long – that is a gain of 4” in 2 weeks, and almost 13oz. She sleeps 12-14 hours and day but when not sleeping I can sure feel her these days. She hates when I hunch over and kicks me quite often when I do.
How I am doing? Good! The heat wave on the long weekend kicked my butt and gave me headaches but after the temps dropped and I had a chiropractor adjustment they were all better. Still some heartburn on/off which I am guessing is here to stay. And lastly I do get a upset stomach sometimes in the morning after eating – I have not really figured out why yet.
Weight gained: 9.5lbs. At my check-up at 21 weeks the Dr. said this is perfect for me.
Workouts: 4-5 a week. Still the same combo – running, gym – weights and the elliptical, Tracey Anderson Pregnancy Project DVD these days. This week I start prenatal yoga again – yayyy!
Movement: YES. She moves a lot. On days I am busy and moving around I do not always notice her as much but then the last few days I can feel here even then. She loved to kick my bladder
Sleep: Good. Still waking up a couple times to pee. I am finally learning to sleep (and stay) on my side with the help of my body pillow.
Stretch marks? Nothing new here – whew.
Miss Anything? On the (hot) long weekend a nice cold cooler would have been nice….
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: People are finally brave enough to ask me when I am due! I am fine with this as it is very obvious.
Baby Items Purchased: More clothes…. which is nothing new. Some receiving blankets, and a car seat protector for my car. Oh and our final order of cloth diapers – at 29 diapers we are ready to go
Nursery Update: We spent most of Saturday finishing clearing out our walk-in closet in the office – so much stuff. Anyways, we finally got it all moved, re-organized downstairs and moved Baby K’s stuff in:
Most of her clothes will go into her dresser but until that is done I will store them in here.
And because I am not sure I shared this photo, this is the print we are putting in the nursery and how we decided on colors:
Looking Forward To: Getting her nursery put together – my goal is to have the dresser done and furniture set up within a month, then I can spend a month or so decorating and perfecting it.
Any one else experience the upset stomach around this point?
Moms – what is the ONE must have you thin everyone needs?
