So here's the standard questionnaire:
Weight: Hey, good news, I didn't gain full pounds this week. I'm hoping it continues and maybe I did all my weight gaining in the second trimester and it calms down for my third. I'm taking this small victory but I'm not quite chalking it up to be a trend (just yet).
Maternity clothes: Still the same
Stretch marks: none
Baby Movements: He's pretty active, but not continuously throughout the day. I usually feel him in the morning right after breakfast and then in the afternoon and then right around bed time. I can feel him the best when I'm lying down, but I think if I concentrate I can feel him move around more. He's definitely getting stronger and bigger, but I still haven't seen any discernible body parts (although it might still be too early for that).
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing although I'm still eating a lot of sweets.
What do you miss: Being able to walk briskly and/or run. If I do either of those things my stomach/lower abdomen start to really ache and rebel. I've been doing the elliptical a few times a week and that seems to be ok, but running and brisk walking do not mesh well with me.
Other: My belly button is still in, but it's getting quite shallow and wide. Huge has a bet with me that it's going to pop out by January 27th... I'm hoping it stays in a little bit longer, but we'll see. I feel like my stomach is growing every day so it could be sooner rather than later.
Also, I've realized that baby G is going to be here before you know it. I'm trying to prepare myself in case he comes early, so I gave myself a 36 week date -but that's only 9 weeks away. I really need to get cracking on getting things ready. I'm hoping he comes on time or even a little late as 12-15 weeks sounds like a much better time frame for things... because 9 weeks is not a lot of time! (although, considering the size of my belly, maybe shaving a few weeks off will be good...)
