How far along: 35 weeks
Genders: Boy & Girl!!
Weight gain: +2 pounds (34 lbs so far)
New symptoms: Since my hospital stay last week I’ve been feeling a lot more pelvic pressure, especially on my pubic bone, and just overall achiness around my belly. Braxton Hicks contractions that are a bit more intense and frequent. I’ve even started to time some when they’ve lasted a while but so far they’ve dwindled down in their own.
Queasy or sick: With the acid reflux I’ve been feeling a bit more nauseous when it flares up so I have to keep reminding myself that no matter how hungry I am to have small meals.
Cravings: I’ve been craving milk a lot lately. Over the last few years I’ve never been a huge milk drinker but I’m easily going through a gallon a week.
Aversions: Nothing new
Sleep: Restless and way more challenging to get comfortable. Plus I’m up to pee every 1-2 hours still. My maternity pillow helps but my belly just feels really heavy all the time.
Maternity clothes: Comfy, loose items. Basically whatever actually fits right now.
Stretch marks: just the ones around my belly button. I’m applying either the oil or lotion twice a day.
Belly button in or out: still in but shallow, I don’t think it’s every going to fully pop out!
Miss anything: I miss not peeing so frequently, not having reflux all the time, and being overall less achy everywhere.
Movement: Lots of rolls and hiccups with the occasional kick. They’re running out of room in there to move a ton but after last weeks’ scare I’m grateful to feel them moving often.
