Sorry I have been MIA on here. This third tri I have been so unmotivated to do anything! I am so tired all the time and its just easy to keep putting off updating on here. I can't believe we have 5 weeks left till our sweet girl's due date. We are pretty much ready for this girl! All we have left to do is pack the bags and install the car-seat. Such a wonderful feeling. I am just watching time pass slowly now and eagerly awaiting her arrival.
How far along?: 35 WEEKS! We have Less than 5 weeks till this little nugget's due date.
Baby is the size of a: A large cantaloupe. BUT She is measuring a week ahead so she might be even bigger than that!
Total weight gain/loss: Last checked (I believe Friday morning) about 27.5 lbs. No telling after this weekend though. Ate a bunch and have been very lazy so probably gained 5 lbs in two days lol.
The Bump: HUGE! She has definitely made her presence to let everyone know I am pregnant! :)
Symptoms: Hmm... cramps usually in the mornings, I am starting to waddle, tired most of the time, irritation...ready for this girl to be here so I can have my body back. I know I really have had it lucky-- since she has so much room, I am really not miserable. BUT I feel like I have so many other uncomfortable symptoms that are making up for it! Luckily, no heartburn and I am sleeping pretty well as of now.
Food Cravings: I'd have to say burgers. I never want to miss out on an opportunity for one and I really enjoy them when I get to eat them! I don't ever wake up in the middle of the night and think "MAN I COULD REALLY GO FOR A BURGER" but it has definitely been my food of choice.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope.
Sleep: You know, I it has been so long that I have posted on here that I haven't told y'all about the loss of our cat. Its been really hard and I am still recovering but we had to put my sweet cat, Mali, down about a month ago. She was my best friend always by my side and so loving. I miss her so much. BUT I must say, I sleep so much better now that she is with the Lord. She doesn't wake me up throughout the night and I only wake up once a night to use the bathroom now.
What I miss: Well I don't deprive myself of too much these days. I miss sleeping on my stomach champagne and running. Can't wait to do all of those things in a few months.
Weddings Rings On or Off: On. Fortunately, still no swelling yet.
Any Names Picked Out Yet: RILEY GRACE
Gender: Baby Barnes is a girl!
Movement: She is very active. Can't wait to see how active she will be on the outside!
Maternity Clothes: I am down to about 2 pair of pants (I DO LAUNDRY ALL THE TIME) and about 5-6 shirts. My wardrobe is very limited and I am trying to get creative, but not really motivated to do so.
Labor Signs: I had my first Braxton Hicks last week (about 3 in the same day) but haven't had any since. Maybe I was dehydrated.
Best Moment of the Week: Finishing up RIley's registry and finishing up the nursery. We are ready for you sweet girl, whenever you want to come!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Of course FINALLY geting to meet RILEY. Usually I would say my birthday which is in 2 weeks from today. For some reason, it just doesn't seem like that big of a deal this year. I am excited to be with family and bring on another year, but other than that... no margaritas= not so much excitement. lol Oh and we are moving into the weekly appointments starting this week! VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT!
