Baby is the size of: An English cucumber
Maternity clothes? Ugg... can we not talk about clothes?
Rings on or off? Hurray! Finally something that HASN'T expanded yet. That would be my ring finger, by the way.
Sleep: Not too bad, between multiple trips to the bathroom
Belly Button: Almost an outie...
Exercise: I wish. My midwife recommended an iron supplement to help with the sluggishness. I've been too wiped out the last week or so to do any kind of exercise beyond walking to/from work. Hopefully the energy improves enough that I can work out again soon.
Food cravings: BEEF. It's what I really want for dinner. And molasses. And raisins. And garlic bread.
|Check it out! He's this long!|
Best moment of the week: Italian food with M last night. YUM - garlic bread!
Symptoms: REALLY tired and sluggish. Headaches off and on. Hot all the time - thank goodness for fans!
Mood? Cranky, short-tempered.
Blessings of the week: I was given the opportunity for less stress at work. Another department needs help with preparing for summer camps, so I'm going over there to help out for 30 hours a week starting next week. Hurray!
I learned ... That stress and anxiety in labor can not only cause your labor to stall, it can also cause it to regress (like, go from being dilated 8 cm to dilated 4 cm). Weird, huh?
Looking forward to: Baby shower next week!
