How far along? 28 weeks with Baby Haguewood #2
Total weight gain/loss: +17lbs.
Maternity clothes? YEP! My all time favorite leggings, good for maternity and non-maternity, are these PureBody Low Rise Leggings from theGap. THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!!!! I was able to wear them throughout my last pregnancy and also in the hospital and weeks after my delivery because they are so comfy and stretchy. The low rise is nice because it still hugs my bump but doesn’t fall down. They are always on sale for 30% or 40% OFF which is the best.
Stretch marks? Nada.
Sleep: Not toO shabby this week. I wake up to use the restroom and to stretch out my calves quite a bit. I have had terrible charlie horses and leg cramps with both pregnancies. I always know that if I try and stretch out my legs while laying down that one of my calves will seize up. My only option in to hop out of bed to release it. Sometimes its so bad and won’t relax that I climb into a hot bath in the middle of the night to relax the muscle. It always scares the crap out of my husband but is sometimes the only thing to ease the tension. I’ve tried extra water, bananas, extra vitamins, and using a foam roller on my calves prior to bedtime with no luck. As soon as I have the baby though they immediately stop, or at least they did with Reagan.
Best moment this week: Daddy felt the baby kick for the first time. Its sooooo hard to time the baby kicks and movement. It almost never occurs whene we are both sitting down at the same time with his hands on my belly waiting for a little kick. But baby went for a little jog this week in my belly and we saw some major belly rolls as well as felt multiple kicks.
Have you told family and friends? Yep!
Worst moment this week: Two words…Glucose Test! IT SUCKS!!!!!! I used to think it wasn’t that bad. But it is.
Miss Anything? This week i’ve really missed having mental clarity. Pregnancy brain has officially kicked in and i’m a forgetful mess. I have trouble recalling information and if I don’t write it down or put it in my phone then its gone forever. I never believed in “pregnancy brain,” but its a real thing. Now that i’ve hit this point in my pregnancy I remember having the same feelings during my last pregnancy.
Movement: Felt lots this week and Daddy felt some too!!!!!! Once the baby starts moving the reality of a tiny human swimming around in my tummy hits me and is just so exciting.
Food cravings: AVOCADOS!!! I’ve been eating them almost everyday.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Feeling GREAT although I did have my first episode of heartburn after eating chicken enchiladas one night. Thank goodness Tums aren’t off limits during pregnancy or I would be screwed.
Symptoms: Still feeling all the feels there are to feel. Pregnancy is “oh so glorious!!!!”
Have you started to show yet: Totally!
Gender prediction: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nada
Belly Button in or out? OUT
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY but tired.
Looking forward to: Doing some serious nesting. We finally got Baby H #2 a crib, I have big plans to DEEP clean the house, and i’m planning on doing lots of meal prepping for when the baby arrives. I did several freezer meals during my last pregnancy and it saved us during the first few months of having a newborn. I know things will only be amplified this time around as we will also have a toddler. Life and reality are about to smack us in the face friends but we seriously couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!
