How far along: 29 weeks
Genders: Boy & Girl!!
Weight gain: – 1 pound
New symptoms: My appetite is picking up again and I’m able to eat more at one time, which is not good for the acid reflux that has also come with this increased hunger. It’s a double-edged sword. Haha!
Queasy or sick: None this week.
Cravings: I’ve been wanting more milk and anything minty flavored. I discovered the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor Minter Wonderland and it is heaven! Dark chocolate mint ice cream with chocolate cookie chunks. It tastes like the girl scout cookies Thin Mints which I finally caved and bought some this week!
Aversions: Nothing new
Sleep: Restless but somewhat satisfying
Maternity clothes: anything loose and not tight on my belly
Stretch marks: nothing new since before
Belly button in or out: still in but shallow
Miss anything: feeling less full
Movement: Rolling around a lot and stronger kicks!
The novel coronavirus is picking up here in the US and I’m starting to get a little worried for what that will mean for the future of my job as an ER nurse and for this pregnancy. I hope more information comes out soon if it affects unborn babies or new babies because these guys will be coming any time! We started taking childbirth classes this week and it is pretty informative. Glad we’re getting prepared.
