There honestly isn’t too much to say about this week, but I still want to document it of course. 🙂
Size of the Baby: An Endive (?) – about 10.5 inches and 12.7 ounces!
Total Weight Gain: 9 pounds
Gender: A baby boy! See our gender reveal here.
Symptoms: Every once in a while I have trouble taking a deep breath. It doesn’t last long and I’m pretty sure it’s a normal pregnancy thing but it’s a bit frustrating. I also had a few nights where my nose would get super stuffy and it would be harder to breathe when laying down. I used my Essential Oil diffuser and that helped A LOT.
I also had one day where I had this intense hip pain out of nowhere. It passed pretty quickly and hasn’t come back so I’m not worried but it was intense.
Sleep: Oh how I miss my regular sleep. I cannot get used to sleeping on my side for anything. I usually wake up on my back in the morning and have to flip back over on my side. My body is just not comfortable that way.
Stretch Marks: None yet!
Cravings: To be honest with you I haven’t really had any lately, or at least not any strong ones.
Exercise: I did take a couple walks this week but that was really it. I felt like my body really needed some rest this week so I didn’t push it.
Tommy is: working really hard this week. excited to finish the nursery shiplap (which we should be doing this weekend!)
Looking forward to: finishing the shiplap and paint in the nursery!
Best Moments: My mom’s friend at work gave us a little gift of baby clothes! It was so sweet! I’ll include a picture below of what she got us.
