How far along? 26 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 27 weeks today.)
Total weight gain/loss: I'm 137.8 lbs! Thank you to the three Christmas parties I attended this week. You added to my misery!! Bahahaha! My weight gain goes in correlation with my growing fetus... and it doesn't make it better that three holidays are celebrated within a six week period. I need to enjoy my family/friend time! Whatever- it's the holidays!
Maternity clothes: Yes! I bought a few items last week and it's been SO good to feel like I fit in clothing. I'll have to trek over to Old Navy some time soon to pick up some tops.
Stretch marks? ... No, but winter is coming...
Sleep: Same as last week! 2/3 of light sleep and getting up 2-3x a night isn't so awesome! Also, I was able to function on four hours of contiguous sleep. Is my body ready for baby?
Best moment this week: I'm still on a high knowing that I passed my glucose test with flying colors.
Worst moment of the week: I hate the constant badgering of, "I need to know if it's a boy/girl." Uhh, no. You don't. I also hate the fact that Ming got me sick! I'm living off Zyrtec and Tylenol. Not feelin' so hot!
Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach!
Movement: There is SO much movement!- especially at night!
Food cravings: I guess the fact that I can have sweets is very alluring. Since passing my GTT, when we're at the movies, I've been munching on Crunch bars!
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of meat cooking isn't ideal... but nom! At least I can eat it now!
Do you like the second picture? It was taken pre-sneeze!
Have you started to show yet: Yes!
Gender Prediciton: TEN DAYS UNTIL THE BABY SHOWER! Time seriously flies!!
Labor signs: The Braxton Hicks have definitely lessened... but I still get them every now and then.
26w 2d. Arghhh! Hives!
Symptoms: Hives reared its ugly head this week. Out of nowhere, my stomach bore these ugly, itchy bumps! After bothering me for FOUR DAYS, I caved and scratched 'em last night, 12/22... and now it looks as it does in the picture above. Yuck!
Belly button in or out? In... ? It's awkward-looking.
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time? Moody, I guess. Cristhian and I are finally paid off our credit cards! We've done without A LOT in order to do so... and it's tough to be so strict during the holidays. It's ok because 2015 will be a fruitful year!
Looking forward to: Christmas in Connecticut! Cristhian and I actually really, really miss West Hartford... but I guess Norwich is ok. Hahaha!
