How big is baby: Little miss is measuring in at 17.2 inches and 4.2 pounds.
Weight gain/loss: Up to 22 lbs.
Stretch marks: After two pregnancies, I somehow still don't have any.
Sleep: I’ve actually been sleeping somewhat better the last two nights. Ezra is a complete bed hog though. We transitioned Isaac to a twin on Monday and I’m thinking this weekend we’ll work on getting Ezra down in the crib.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I’ve said it before and I’ll just keep saying it, I’m over food. Nothing tastes flat out amazing.
Movement: We’re transitioning from kicks to rolls and pushes.
What I'm loving: It’s finally starting to get real, like really real, that there will soon be change in our family again. We’ve settled into a nice little rhythm, excluding high stress times like hockey and wedding season ;), with the boys and I can’t believe that it’ll all come undone again, for a great reason in 6 or so weeks.
Symptoms: You name it. The pregnancy insomnia is really the worst right now and my hormone fueled emotions.
What I'm looking forward to: My newest sister in law, Bethany, throwing me a “sprinkle” at possible the last possible moment, at no fault of hers, just mine. It’s just how things go around here at this point, but I’m looking forward to the first week of April!
Best moment of the week: Jeez, there already have been so many great moments this week. Isaac is absolutely overjoyed to be in his new bed, just absolutely overjoyed and we’re loving it. Also, I got to spend a lot of the evening last night with Gina, after surprising her with some GF/DF treats after she found out that she broke her foot. It’s not often that I get to actually be a friend in-person, especially to Gina since we live about 40 minutes away from each other. I’m so grateful that Tony was home from hockey and encouraged me to take the time to be a friend.
How I'm feeling: Compared to last week, night and day better. I’m feeling encouraged, despite some recent unpleasant run-ins with the public. It’s funny, because reading my 33 week post with Ezra, I seemed to get the same exact type of comments at precisely the same point in my pregnancy. People be crazy. I know I’m not huge and know how much larger I will get, especially from weeks 35-39 [fingers crossed], but apparently people forget how large that can be!
Additionally, I found out that my midwife is actually only out the week that I’m due . . . not the week prior as I’d been told. I’m kind of at a standstill right now, as I’m not 100% positive how to proceed, but after last week’s appointment with the new midwife, I’m really happy that delivering with Fern is a possibility again! We haven’t been able to connect, but she’d mentioned stripping me at my 39w appt on April 8th and hopefully that’ll set the ball in motion for another 39w birth [with or without Gina].
