Baby Girl’s Activity: I have started to see “wave movement” in my belly. It usually starts on my right side and moves toward my left. Sometimes she pushes the right side of my belly out for periods of time. My mom actually saw some movement the other day. She is definitely active in there.
Body Feels: TIRED. I never really struggled with the tiredness in my first or second trimester. But I am starting to feel it now. I start to get real sleepy after lunch, and most nights I fall asleep on the couch before it is bedtime. I am also moving much slower these days.
Total Weight Gain: 26 lbs
Wearing: I have stuck to almost all maternity items this week. I occasionally wear normal t-shirts, but I am feeling the snugness of them and I prefer a little extra room.
Craving: Well my second glucose test did not go quite as well as I had hoped. I was not diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes (praise the Lord), but I did have one level that was slightly elevated. So, I am to watch my sugar/carb intake. This is so frustrating to me because if you know me – you know that I LOVE MY FOOD. I don’t like diets normally, and being pregnant and having to “diet” – ugh – the torture. We’ll see how this goes. I am starting to look more closely at labels, and make slightly better decisions. But there is just no way I can completely rid myself of all the “good foods”.
Pondering: It has started to warm up over here in Ohio, and I am noticing the heat. I wonder how I will fare on vacation to SC in a couple of weeks.
Nursery Progress: I placed templates of my decor on the wall to minimize holes and allow for easy hanging. One step closer!
