I'm too tired to come up with anything fun to talk about today. Between my cramping bowels, munchkin's midnight screaming and 2.0's nightly acrobatics I didn't get much sleep. So instead of being witty I'm just trying to make it through the day and thanking god that it's Friday. So, is it 4:00 yet???
How far along? 26w0d and the size of a head of lettuce (or a large zucchini according to my phone app). He's ~13.6 inches and just under 2 lbs. He's practicing breathing by inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid. He also has eyelashes.
Weight loss/gain: My alarm didn't go off and I was in a rush this morning so I didn't bother weighing myself. I knew I would hate what I saw on the scale anyway, so why ruin the beginning of a 3 days weekend.
Maternity clothes: 50/50 still. I'm pretty much giving up on all non-maternity pants/shorts that have zippers, though.
Symptoms: Surprise surprise - my bowels are still on strike. I did take a dulcolax the other night and OMG the cramps were about as bad as the beginnings of labor with Andrew. It worked, so I guess it was worth it, but damn I was miserable for a while there.
Sex (of baby): It's a BOY!!!
Name: Still zero progress. I guess we should start talking about it, huh?
Sleep: Not too bad, except for Tuesday night with the aforementioned cramps from hell. I've also been sleeping downstairs most of this week because J has an awful cough and it was keeping me up and pissing me off.
Best moment this week? This week has been blah.
Movement: Lots. He's clearly getting strong enough to bust through my anterior placenta. He seems to be particularly active in the evenings and I really wish he would remove whatever appendage is shoved up under my ribs on the right side. He seems to be following his big brother's lead - that is exactly where Andrew loved to torture me, too.
Food cravings: I ate an entire container of wasabi peas this week.
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? Feeling like I look good in my clothes.
What I'm looking forward to? Three day weekend! Woo hoo!!
Milestones: Almost to 3rd tri. Yikes!
What I'm nervous about: That J will want to go to the beach this weekend. I cried last weekend when I had to put on a bathing suit for the pool and the thought of being in public in one is giving me major anxiety. At least at Jay's pool it was just us.
Here I am in all my glory this morning. I won't even admit to how many outfit changes I had this morning - and this was the best I could do:
And just for shits and giggles here I was back at 12 weeks. My ass has definitely expanded right along with my belly. Bummer.
