How far along ? 6.5 months!!!
How big is baby? According to Baby app, about 1.66 lb and the length of a scallion. (That’s pretty long already)
Symptoms: back pain, little out of breath occasionally,
Total weight gain: i think less than 15 at this point
Maternity clothes: i need to find more pants. I hate the side panel jeans I got from target and need some other work appropriate bottoms and tops.
Sleep: yes still able to get good sleep, sometimes pretty deeply too
Stretch marks: nothing new, still using my shea butter
Food cravings: not really? If there’s ice cream in the freezer I’ll eat some but if there isn’t then that’s fine. I’ve been wanting to eat more fruit but don’t know if that is cravings based or diet based
Best moment: getting some decent progress made on my master closet! I can finally put away some of my clothes and not pull them out of boxes every morning ! 🙂
Movement: cold water seems to do something crazy to baby, and occasionally when I lay with my back kind of reclined. Also the day of baby girls end of the year musical performance, baby was playing a whole soccer game in my belly! But that could have been the 3 cinnamon rolls I stuffed my face with before the show?
Labor signs: no
Belly button in or out: pretty flat
What I miss: being able to move around freely. Trying to unpack and set up the house has been slowed down by the fact I can’t move the way I used to. Also I burned my belly the tiniest bit when I was cooking on the stove because the pan was large and I didn’t realize my belly was so close. Nothing major I jumped back immediately but it was a little scary.
What I look forward to: the baby shower that we finally set a date for!
Milestones: set a baby shower date, put together some stuff for the registry, and started planning what to do for big sister’s birthday
Weekly wisdom: take it slow, there’s so much to do but when I try to do too much my feet and back pay for it
