Usually I have much better pictures for this, but considering my options this is as good as it’s going to get.
Total weight gain/loss: Still sitting pretty at 120ish. (I was 119.6 when being weighed in on Sunday night, but I have very light clothing on vs. the jeans and sweater I had on when I weighed in at 120.8 – we’re calling it the same weight. )
Maternity clothes? PJ pants and t-shirts
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Sleep has been tough the past week. More specially since Saturday. My chest pain makes it uncomfortable to lie flat on my side, coughing keeps me up as does the regular hustle bustle of being in a hospital overnight. Last night I got a few good hours.
Miss Anything? I miss being able to do handstands and backbends. I feel like I could really use a good back bend. I’m also missing sleep a bit.
Movement: Nugget hunkers down real low when I cough, and I don’t blame her(him) I would want to get away from my constricting stomach muscles too! So the last few days I haven’t felt as much movement as usually. I still feel her(him) flip flop and budge up on my right side when I haven’t been coughing for a while. Usually during the evening.
Food Cravings: Liquids. I just want lots of liquids. Hot broth, cold milk, icy water, etc.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Oh, just the flu.
Gender: ONE MORE WEEK UNTIL WE KNOW FOR SURE!
Labor signs: None- thank goodness that’s the last thing I’d want while I have the flu.
Belly button in or out? It’s working it’s way out. Kyle and I joke, that I’m going to have one big cough and it’s just going to pop itself inside out.
Happy or moody most of the time? Considering the situation (hospital, flu, chest pains, little sleep) I think my mood is pretty good. I’ve only snapped at one person but it’s because they were not following the gown-ing up rule.
Looking forward to: Feeling better and going home! And of course, as usually, the ultrasound next Tuesday.
