apparently she is packing on the pounds still, about an ounce a day. and i think it is showing in my stretch marks 😥 ill load up on cocoa butter and shea butter and every thing else i can find when i get a chance. i dont think she’s “dropped” yet because i still feel kicks up in my upper ribs, and am still having a little shortness of breath. the heartburn has subsided somewhat though, happy for that. other than that im still at work and still trying to unpack the little boxes we have left. i want as little chores to do once she gets here.
