Phew, what a whirlwind the past two weeks have been!
Between busy, busy times at work, a little St. Louis vacation and fighting bronchitis still...I'm so glad the weekend is almost here! And just because I promised to be a better blogger, I will give you two blogs today :gasp:. Oh, and I have a pretty cool giveaway in the works too:)
Without further ado, baby 2.0 update.
Size of Baby: orange
Total Weight Gain: +1.5 (still not above the weight I put on from fertility...but it's getting close!)
Continuing Symptoms: nothing to really note, I'm still coughing a good bit from bronchitis, which stinks.
New Symptoms This Week: BH contractions every late afternoon and evening. My doctor checked me yesterday just to be sure they weren't causing me to dilate and all was good and tight!
Maternity Clothes: not yet, but it won't be long. My pants didn't button this week, but all my dresses are still good.
Sleep: sleep is good, when I'm not up coughing my lungs up
What I'm Eating: back to my normal diet
Cravings: pasta and pizza (which explains the weight gain)
Movement: I'm feeling more flutters at night, which I love!
Labor Signs: BH contractions, but thankfully no dilation! Just keeping hydrated and resting as much as possible.
Special Pregnancy Moments: hearing the baby's heartbeat at the doctor yesterday (155bpm) and scheduling our gender ultrasound. One week and counting until we know if 2.0 is Benjamin Jacob or Matilda Jayne!!!
