Happy Friday everyone! Not so much for me. I'm stuck at the hospital for the next 3 hours for this glucose test. I haven't eating since 8 last night, so I'm pretty cranky. I wanted to thank you all for your well wishes on this dang thing.
I just got finished drinking the nasty drink, which by the way has DOUBLE the sugar in it than the first time I drank it. Oy. I'm just hoping I don't get exploding diarrhea again. Seriously, that was awful. My stomach is making weird noises & baby girl is kicking & squirming all over the place.
PLEASE LORD, LET ME NOT MAKE A FOOL OF MYSELF IN THE WOMEN'S BATHROOM, AMEN.
Well, enough of that. Let's move onto more important things. Like, the fact that I'm 29 weeks pregnant. Which means I will have a baby in (give or take) 11 weeks!!! I have to admit that I'm in a small bit of denial. I don't feel prepared AT ALL, because well; I'm not. I keep saying to myself "oh, I still have _ amount of weeks. That's plenty of time to get everything done." I know 11 weeks is a while, but I want to get the big stuff done and over with before I'm so big & uncomfortable that I don't want to get off the couch. Catch my drift?
I guess we'll jump into the survey now:
How far along?: 29 weeks. Holy. Crap.
How big is baby?: about 2.5 lbs
Weight gain?: As of Monday at my Dr. appt, I had gained 4lbs in 4 weeks. So, that puts me at about 20lbs total. I'm guessing that's normal??
Stretch marks?: none, but the way my belly has been itching, I might GIVE myself stretch marks from scratching so hard. I'm trying to refrain from that though.
Maternity clothes?: just bottoms & a few tops. But still getting away with regular tops & dresses.
Sleep?: I still feel like I'm sleeping pretty well. No big complaints.
Best moment this week?: Seeing baby girl on the ultrasound machine with her chubby cheeks :)
Food cravings?: Lemonade from Chick-fil-A. Oh & cheez-its with hot sauce on them. Weird? Hell yes.
Movement?: Constantly. And she has found my ribs. Good times.
Belly button?: Uh, it's non-existent as of now.
What I miss?: being able to clean my house without my feet swelling & hurting
Labor signs?: nope! stay in there baby for at least 8 more weeks!!
What I'm looking forward to?: House hunting this weekend. More on that later...
Milestone?: Making it to month 7!! WOOT!
29 week belly.
That's a fake smile since I was on my way out the door
to come here to the hospital...Sorry this post is so dang long. It kept my mind off the fact that I feel like I am going to pass out & die of hunger. I'll let you all know how the results turn out!!
