Tomorrow is my monthly checkup with my doc. In a couple months I will be going twice a week, which is weird to think about, that we are getting at that point. Oh and I have to start thinking about when I will be getting the nasty gestational diabetes test done. And on the 23rd I get a follow up ultrasound and it should be my last ultrasound until Elyse arrives! So much to do!!
I can tell that Elyse is getting bigger. I am feeling her kick all the time. And it is at specific times during the day. Usually around 7:30-8am, for sure around 4pm and then at 9pm when I am laying in bed. She definitely is making her own schedule. I am really looking forward to when Matt and the boys will be able to feel her kick for the first time. I know it is coming soon, and Mason says he can feel her and hear her, but just you wait kid!
Total Weight Gain: 8 pounds total weighing in at 245.6 pounds.
Symptoms: Feeling pretty great this week. Just making sure I don't over do it. I do love taking my daily naps. I feel like I almost have to but I don't require 3 naps like I did in the 1st trimester.
Baby’s Size: Banana/Pomegranate
Maternity Clothes: Yes, bottoms need to wear maternity or stretchy pants. Tops I wear maternity now and my bigger t-shirts.
Stretch Marks: I already have a ton that I got when I gained weight years ago. So nothing new.
Sleep: I am only waking up once a night to go to the bathroom. But started having some crazy weird dreams! I am flipping over from one side to the other a lot, but often times I end up on my back.
Miss Anything: Sleeping comfortably flat on my belly or back! Sleeping through the night.
Cravings: It has gone back and forth between carbs and then to protein/meat. I have really enjoyed eating burgers. We indluged in our food budget and I got some really good grass fed beef for burgers for Mother's Day.
Aversions: nothing yet
Excited About: My monthly check up is tomorrow so I get to hear her heartbeat. I am feeling her kick so much more than before! That has been fun. Looking forward to when Matt and the boys will be able to feel her kick from the outside.
Workouts: Got in my workouts 5 days a this past week, which is awesome! Still getting lots of massages from Matt for that. I have been doing 21 Day Fix yoga & pilates specifically, Cize, Diary Of A Fit Mommy's Fit For Two 2nd Trimester workouts and the Beachbody On Demand Active Maternity 2nd Trimester workouts.
