Do I look bored?? Because I feel bored. I am just bored with being pregnant right now I guess. We've passed the excitement of the big ultrasound and the gender reveal. My big summer trips are over. I'm feeling ok, but I know I still have a long way to go. I'm actually really looking forward to school starting in a few weeks, mostly because it means I'm that much closer to my due date. ;)
Weight gain/loss: Up 18 lbs. from my pre-pregnancy weight and feeling REALLY bad about myself. I keep reminding myself that I gained 40 pounds when I was pregnant with Evie, and I started at a higher weight that time too. I've been very good about exercising since I got back from Panama, but I need to start watching what I eat better.
Fruit of the week: This week baby is the size of a cantaloupe.
Feeling: Physically, fine. Just a little bored. I've been very into some school projects, and I really am looking forward to going back in a few weeks.
Sleep: My hips are feeling much better. At my appointment last week, my doctor gave me some exercises to strengthen my lower back and hips. I think that it's really been helping.
Food cravings: Coffee. I haven't given in yet because I feel like it's been too ridiculously hot out, but I think that I'll have to get some in the near future.
Maternity clothes: Blech! I haven't had this bad of body issues in a while. I need new bras because I've outgrown all of my old ones, which might help.
Movement: I've definitely felt a couple of bouts of hiccups in the past week. I forgot how weird that is!!
Gender? Still a boy, I hope... That's what we're planning on anyway. ;)
What I miss? Clothing that fits normally, and not feeling like a huge whale all of the time.
Best moment this week: Seeing Evie's reaction to the animals at the State Fair on Friday. She was SO into it!!
What I'm looking forward to: Meeting my new department team member tomorrow. He's in Wisconsin on a teacher exchange program from Mexico. I think it's going to be an awesome experience for the kids and our school. (See, I'm school-obsessed right now!) Also, I'm "coaching" in the teachers vs. students softball game at our local community picnic on Saturday. I thought I'd look ridiculous trying to play softball almost 6 months pregnant, so they assigned me the job of coach...yikes!!
Next Appointment: August 27. This is my last 4 week appointment, after that I go every 2 weeks!
