11 weeks to go! The countdown has begun! Yesterday was fun! I got to see little miss! And she is doing so well! So I have been getting monthly ultrasounds every month since 13 weeks due to my history with all my miscarriages and the placental abruption that happened last year but after yesterdays appointment she is doing so well. And I am guessing based on the ultrasound yesterday that when she is born she will be 8-8.5 pounds! She was weighing in, based on her measurements and size, to be about 3 pounds. (These are only estimates as the ultrasounds can be off as much as 3 pounds in the end!) She is measuring in the 51% for her size, when a couple of months she was below average. So we are happy to know that she is so healthy, and BIG!
Mason and Collin have officially moved into the same room. Pictures have been moved over. New mattress (Hyphen, is what we went with and it is actually pretty comfy. Check it out here!) for Collin is in the bed and they spent their first night in the bunk beds last night with Mason on the top and Collin on the bottom. It didn't start out too well in the beginning with Collin freaking out about Mason being on the top bunk, and Collin was put in his crib until he could calm down and get a little tired out. I ended up putting him back in the bed about 30 minutes later and he fell asleep. When I went in this morning. Collin was not in his bed but he, at some point, fell out and had slept under his bed. Just his feet were hanging out. It was cute. I just wonder how long he actually slept on the floor. But he didn't cry once last night. The ladder is the other issue we are still trying to work out! Collin wants to climb up and be with big brother but I am not ready for that. So no ladder on the bed. We take it off once Mason is in bed and he knows how to climb down safely with out it but can't climb back in yet.
Total Weight Gain: 16 pounds total. Weight as of this morning 254.0 pounds.
Symptoms: HEARTBURN! Lack of sleeping well. Still have to take 1 nap to make it through the day And round ligament pain from my pulled ligament I injured during my last pregnancy. Feeling HOT all the time!
Baby’s Size: Small Cabbage (~17 inches inches, 3 pounds)
Maternity Clothes: Yes, bottoms need to wear maternity or stretchy pants. Tops I wear maternity now and my bigger t-shirts. Wearing my new Fabletics sports bra in these pictures and LOVE THEM and the fun colors! A ton more coverage and super comfy!
Stretch Marks: I already have a ton that I got when I gained weight years ago. So nothing new. I am using Honest Company belly balm right now though to help my belly stretch so I do not get any new ones.
Sleep: Sleep actually hasn't been too bad, except for the heartburn at the beginning of the night and trying to get comfy. But once I'm out, I am out until my first bathroom break, then out again, until my second time I wake up to go to the bathroom!
Miss Anything: Sleeping comfortably flat on my belly or back! Sleeping through the night.
Cravings: Veggies? I really don't have any cravings. I just really enjoy eating good foods. I have been snacking on Peanut M&M's, maybe a handful a day, but I am trying really hard to have a junk free July.
Aversions: Nope. But sweets taste too sweet for me, so I can only handle a little at a time.
Excited About: Got to see little miss Sassafras yesterday! She was so active and not really wanting to take any good pictures. It was fun to find out that she is doing so well! Things are going so well for this pregnancy. Tomorrow is my next monthly check up with the doc and last monthly check up as I will probably be every 2 weeks beyond this point. I am now 11 weeks from my due date!
Workouts: Okay this week! I only got in 4 days this past week. My regular Workouts include: 21 Day Fix yoga & pilates. Beachbody On Demand Active Maternity and Diary Of A Fit Mommy's Fit For Two 2nd Trimester workouts in daily. Still trying to get in walks everyday for the kiddos at night, but it didn't happen every night with the rain and thunderstorms.
