Total weight gain/loss? +25-26 pounds
Maternity clothes? Mixing and matching, still. I returned the maternity jeans I bought. I caved last week and bought two maternity sweaters from Target to get me through these next few weeks, as it is finally starting to feel like fall in San Diego. Well, at least in the mornings and evenings.
Stretch marks? Still nothing. And still no linea negra.
Sleep? No bueno. I'm even starting to get the, "Are you feeling okay? You look tired ... " comments. Awesome.
Food cravings? Bagels. Blueberry bagel, toasted, with strawberry cream cheese. And I'm not a carb person. So weird.
Gender? Finding out on birth day, but still feeling boy. And for the record - we are both 100% game for another girl! I felt it necessary to throw that out there, since there are some folks out there who think I'll be disappointed with another girl (??)
Labor signs? Nothing like, "Ohmygoodness, I'm in labor!" signs, but the pelvic pressure, stabbing pains in the cervix, and super painful Braxton Hicks are keeping me on my toes. This baby needs to stay in for at least another week.
Belly button in/out? Out, out, out.
What I miss: Sleep. Being comfortable. Working out :( I decided last week that walking isn't even an option anymore. After a trip to Target, where I was in there for 40 minutes, caused severe lower back pain, Braxton Hicks, and pelvic pain that I couldn't even bear, I realized that any sort of exertion is just ... out of the picture until this baby comes. I'm pretty depressed about this and am having a really hard time coping. Ugh.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting this baby. Seeing how Ella interacts with her new baby. A legitimate maternity leave this time (I was back to working full time when Ella was about 9 days old last time).
