Pregnancy Update - almost 27 weeks
So, this is more for me than you. Feel free to check back in, oh, another week or so when I post something that's not targeting audience "me".
Total Weight Gained: I'm not sure. Don't get me wrong - I weigh myself almost daily. But it really varies.... but okay, how about a noncommittal, somewhere in the range of 11 - 14 pounds. (eeek!) And Luke and I are measuring two weeks ahead of schedule. I should find out next week if this means an adjustment of my due date.
Sleep: Wish it was better! I don't have any trouble falling asleep but it's tough to stay asleep. On the bright side of things, I'm starting to get a lot accomplished in my nocturnal hours!
Maternity Clothes: Pants and shorts are a necessity. Shirts and some summer dresses are still a mix.
Best Moment of the Week: Dude's Dude read to little dude the other night (yes, read to him...in utero...) and it made me so happy to know I've married such a great father. These two could be double trouble though if Luke takes after daddy too much!
Food Cravings: None really. I do find myself thinking about banana pudding a lot but I don't really act on it so I don't count it as a craving.
Aversions: Still can't do BBQ. So sad in the summertime to miss out on it!
Symptoms: Umm.. normal stuff. My stomach is bigger (or massive depending on my angle), my back hurts occasionally, I pee a lot, the usual.
Movement: Oh yes. I've been feeling movement for a good 5 weeks now. Love it. I'm even seeing a bit of the tummy jumps when he gets real active.
Gender: Yep, thus why I mentioned Little Dude above. The mini mister is Luke James!
What I miss: A really hot bath with a really cold glass of white wine.
What I'm looking forward to: 3-D sono next week!
Weekly Wisdom: I'm finally starting to let people help with things - in fact, dude's dude cleaned the house, we ordered pizza and I have finally started to let some of the "small things" go.
Milestones: According to BabyCenter, my uterus is apparently the size of basketball. How's that for a milestone? :)
