How far along? 30 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 19 lbs so far
Maternity clothes? yup
Stretch marks? I used to think, "ehh, nothing crazy" but I took a bare belly pic and I was shocked! The flash must have done some crazy things to my stretch marks! I will not be posting those here :(
Sleep: you win some days, and and you lose some days
Best moment this week: cleaning out the nursery of garage sale stuff. It feels like its coming together now!
Movement: crazy as always
Food cravings: ICEES!, Subway/Jimmy Johns, soft pretzels (as you can see, I have made quite a few target trips, since that is the only place I know to get Icees and soft pretzels)
Gender: BOY! Handsome and adorable!
Labor Signs: not yet, but I have had some BH
Belly Button: still in, I dont think it will ever pop out!
What I miss: the feeling of relief when I got to the bathroom. I mean, this kid must know when my bladder is empty, and then lays on it to make me feel like its full again!
What I am looking forward to: My baby shower is this weekend! I am looking forward to seeing everyone!
Weekly Wisdom: Just when you think you have things down, they change. Expect the unexpected.
Milestones: I am 3/4 of the way done! As Travis told me today...In 7 to 10 weeks, I will be even more outnumbered (dogs included)! I cannot wait!
So, I had a horrible day at the doctors last Thursday. Started out just fine...I didn't have to wait too long to be seen, only gained 1 lb in 3 weeks (yay!)...and then the fun began. (please note the sarcasm) I waited nearly a hour to be called back. I see the doc for 2 minutes, seriously, and I forget almost all the questions I needed to ask (I know, I need a list!). I did remember I needed to get my Rho-gam shot, so I asked for that and I got it thank goodness. Here comes the kicker...Even though I passed my Gestational Diabetes test with flying colors, she wants me to take the test again...THAT day! I had not fasted because I wasnt told this was going to happen and I ate a granola bar before I went in (one with chocolate chips!) and then I had to drink the horrible drink, which was orange this time, and I liked fruit punch much better! Then I had to wait around AGAIN for a hour to get my blood drawn, and while I am waiting I decided to call my mom. I dont talk a lot about my mom, and its for a good reason. She frustrates the hell out of me! I dont really know why, I love her to death, but she can be sometimes either pretty flighty, or pretty self-absorbed. She has missed my birthday more times than I would like to count, has been out of town for important events of my life, and now I hear she probably is most likely not coming to my baby shower. Dont get me wrong...I love my mom so much, she has been a rock for me in tough times, and the first person I turn to when I need a shoulder... Its just sometimes I dont think she realizes that certain things are important to people. Anyway...Combine the long doctor's visit (about 3 hours), having a horrible sugar rush and then crash, and finding out that my mom will be out of town for my shower (that she knew about for 6 weeks) made for a very cranky pregnant lady. As soon as I left the office, I cried to my husband. I then called my sister and best friend, and bawled to her. Then I called my brother and fought back tears. It was a bad day. Thankfully I havent heard from the doc office yet, so I will officially believe that come Tuesday, if I havent heard anything about my 2nd test, no news is good news! I am crossing every appendage!
Oh yeah...I failed to mention that my belly is measuring 4 weeks ahead. I guess I might need to return all the newborn stuff I bought. Looks like we might have a chunker on our hands!
Sorry this is so long...I needed to vent!
