Both of these pictures are from this weekend. It could be where I am standing in the room compared to the mirror but holy smokes it looks like I grew overnight!
How far along? 36.5Weeks
Total weight gain: According to my OBGYN, I’ve only gained 21lbs as of Friday. My goal has been to stay under 30lbs gained. We’ll see how the end goes. Gabe is just a bigger boy than Wyatt was. J
Maternity clothes? Absolutely. And as much as possible, I am wearing yoga pants. J
Stretch marks? Nope. Praise be to God!
Sleep: Dear Pregnancy Insomnia, You are not welcome. I dislike you, A LOT. Regards, Casey
Yeah, so that started happening. Along with some restless leg syndrome. And with that comes muscle cramping. That didn’t happen with Wyatt either.
Best moment this week: Seeing Gabe NOT breech! We are praising the Lord for allowing him to flip into position. Now praying he stays that way. J
I had a friend point out that we don’t know if I will ever get to feel a baby move inside me again so it hit home. I might not. And actually, I most likely will not. We will just have to see what God has in store for us. Love that I don’t have to worry about it, He just knows. J I am also trying to take in as much time with Wyatt as possible. He’s only got a few weeks of being my one and only left.
Miss Anything? Comfort. LOL. I would like to go a day without back pain. That would be great!
Movement: I’ve mentioned before that Gabe is ACTIVE. Wyatt was too but it’s SO different. Wyatt was more of a light movement frequently. Gabe’s moves are powerful! I totally LOVE feeing him move. It’s awesome but it can be so much and so powerful that sometimes I feel a little sick. I think it’s a good problem to have.
Food cravings: I’m loving food the first half of the day. Any food really. I have also been wanting to chew on ice. That’s not normally me.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.
Gender: It’s still a boy!
Symptoms: Just Braxton hicks and him getting up into my ribs. Tells me he is growing and getting ready. J My doctor cut the cerclage out on Friday and I was dilated 1cm. So, it begins. I know I can stay a 1 for a while… I have a feeling I won’t make it to our due date. J
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? It’s a little fitted so it’s off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: Holding sweet Gabe!
So, I've got some big updates on Wyatt but that will have to be it's own blog. We've had a busy beginning of the year...
In the meantime, here are some pictures. :-)
|Wyatt had the honor of being in one of his NICU primary nurses' wedding. He did a good job walking down the isle. He made it without falling or crying. :-)|
