*Total weight gain: 10 kilos which is about 22 pounds
*How big is baby?: Sparky is (still) the the size of a squash
*Maternity clothes?: Yup - let's just say I wash my clothes a lot - my wardrobe is becoming more & more limited:) I also packed away all my dressy work shirts, as I won't be needing those for awhile now!*Sleep?: Not great when I was still getting over my cold, but the last few nights I have slept wonderfully!!
*Best moment this week? My baby shower yesterday!!!! It was wonderful - I will post the pictures soon:)
*Movement?: Sparky still moves a lot, but now it's big 'shifts' in movement rather than kicks - he is definitely running out of space in there. A few days ago we felt a huge hard bit poke out at the front - we are thinking it was probably his back and bum! Hiccups are becoming a more regular occurance as well.
*Food cravings?: Nothing new, although I think Sparky loved the fancy treats at my high tea shower!*Labor signs?: Too soon for that!
*Belly button in or out?: flattie*What I miss: Hmmm nothing really - all is well :)
*What I'm looking forward to: Moving into 'month 8' next week. Also - starting our classes at the hospital on Saturday!!
*Milestone: I ordered the crib (cot) bedding that I love this weekend!! I don't LOVE any of the gender neutral bedding, so I decided to just order the stuff I really like in both pink & blue, then we can just return what we don't end up needing:) Unfortunately I found out they don't make the same combination of striped/dot bedding that I wanted in both pink and blue - how bizarre! Oh well - they are still gorgeous sheets - feels like a huge relief to now have them on order!!
*Feelings this week:**Baby Brain has hit me with full force in the last week. At the movies the other night I walked into the men's room.... even though I have been there a million times - I just had to GO and didn't look at the sign well enough..... opps! I blame baby brain.....
Then later in the week I went to throw garbage out from my car at the gas station & threw my keys in the bin too - duh! again - blaming the baby brain.....
I know they say baby brain doesn't really exist - you just become fuzzy headed because of lack of sleep (those night time restroom trips & all....) - but whatever it is - I do feel it!
** I have been going to prenatal pilates with my friend Cassie for quite awhile now. It has been fantastic - I really feel like I get a good workout, and she tailors our shared sessions to exactly what I need (strengthen my bad shoulder & back & also lots of pregnancy specific exercises). She has predicted quite a few of her client's/friend's baby genders - so I thought I'd give it a go (her success rate is 5 out of 6 predictions were correct so far....). I brought in the 19 week scan and she thinks by looking at it that Sparky is a boy - we shall see!!!
** I also went to prenatal Yoga for the first time this week. Eh - it was ok. Too much laying on the floor if you ask me. I prefer actually getting a workout to laying around thinking about relaxing my 'toes & feet & legs & arms etc etc etc etc......). It was fun to check out though.
** Also I took my wedding ring off last night. It was getting a bit too snug for comfort..... and I really didn't want to leave it on so long that I'd risk having to have it cut off - so it's now in a safe place until Sparky arrives:) It feels so weird not having a ring on that finger though.... I keep feeling my empty finger with my thumb and having a minor panic until I remember - oh yea - I took it off!
