Baby Size? the doctor’s guess is she’s probably about eight pounds
Weight Gain? a little more than last time, just at 30lbs. though if my doctor lets me go 2 weeks over, then i’m sure it will end up being much more than that!
Stretch Marks? ugh yes, and they’re awful, i think they are worse than last time
Foods i’m loving: i really want chinese food all the time, but the salt isn’t good for me, so i’ve been holding off. also, my mom is in town, so our house is flooded with sweets. icecream yum.
Foods i’m hating: pizza, mexican, ground beef, ground turkey. who knows, things still make me randomly sick.
Sleep? some nights i wake up at 2 or 3AM and can’t go back to sleep for a few hours, but mostly i’ve been sleeping ok.
Symptoms? i’m to that point in pregnancy where people sympathetically rub my belly and say “come out little baby!” when i go to church. people are also surprised to see me whenever i go out anywhere.
What i miss: i’m looking forward to fitting into my clothes again. june dropped last monday, and suddenly none of my maternity clothes cover my belly. zu never dropped until she was being born so i didn’t have that experience last time.
What i’m looking forward to: having this baby!
Emotions? i feel a little impatient for her to get here–zu started to come 2 days before her due date so i’m more pregnant than i’ve ever been! i’ve been going walking everyday to try to get things started; i’m hoping my doctor will tell me that there’s more progress when i go in on wednesday. but maybe she will come before then!
