Size of the Baby: Lettuce (14.4 inches, 1.93 pounds according to The Bump app)
Weight Gain: +13 pounds for the pregnancy
Maternity Clothes: Yes!! This belly is getting big and there is no way even my looser non-maternity shirts would cover it!
Nursery: Not much change this week--we got a bunch of baby things for Christmas that we need to go through and assemble.
Movement: I don't know if it was that I was really relaxed this week due to not having to work or if it was because I was home with family, but he was moving up a storm. One morning, I went back up to our room while Tom did some work and fell asleep on my side. When I rolled over, my stomach was completed lopsided and looked like someone had crushed in the side of a coke can. Well then, he moved and it just popped back out. It was the craziest thing for us to see!
Symptoms: No crazy symptoms this week--I have had some congestion since before Christmas, but I'm trying to just use saline rinses and sprays and lots of tissues to get through it!
Sleep: Oh man, sleep has not been my friend this week! Don't get me wrong, I am very tired but I just cannot seem to fall asleep and stay asleep. There were two nights while I was home that I was wide awake from 3:30 AM to 6:30 AM when I just finally got up for the day.
Cravings/Aversions: I am not craving milk this week due to all of the congestion. I was able to go to a local sushi place while I was home and had them make me a non-raw version of one of my favorite rolls--sooo good!
What I Miss: Nothing!
Best Moment of the Week: I loved getting to spend so much time with family this week. Between spending Christmas with Tom's family and after Christmas/New Years with mine, it was such a nice week. It was also pretty surreal to think it could be my last time traveling back home before baby boy is here!
Looking Forward To: I am looking forward to getting back to a "normal" routine and start meal planning again. I feel like everyone around me is setting their resolutions to get in shape and lose weight and I'm over here like "have a baby!" but I definitely miss being in the gym/running and being on a healthy eating regime. So, my goal is to start meal planning again and incorporating more healthy meals into our rotation--along with some splurges because once the baby comes it's going to be back to eating extremely healthy with only a few cheats!
