I know, I know. I took some time off the past few days. I’m getting to that point where I’m uncomfortable and not sleeping a ton, so instead of doing as much writing as I’d like to, I’ve kind of been sleeping where I can, and then I’m up and down to use the ladies room all night. I promise, I will be a little better about it. Not immediately, cause I’m about to give birth, and I’m not absolutely delusional about the division of my time.
Baby is the size of a: Winter Melon? Once again, I’m finding these fruit comparisons to be highly unrelateable. This other app said romaine heart, and I totally know what that is, but I feel like it doesn’t give me a sense of how much he weighs, and all I can think about is cradling a romaine heart. It’s weird.
Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016
Total weight gain: I have not hopped on the scale in a while. I think I’m holding it down around 30ish pounds of boobs and belly. Seriously, these things are out of control.
Sleep: Ha. Sleeping is not really a thing, but I figured out a trick to help me sleep okay WHEN I’m actually sleeping. I’ve been doing a short lavender bath before bed and that has helped with some comfort. I’m up even more often using the bathroom and every time I wake up, Austin is like ::gasp:: “are you okay?”
Best moment this week: It’s always nice to hear the baby’s heartbeat really strong, and since I’m up to my weekly appointments, I got to hear it again with the doctor I hadn’t met. I have a little doppler machine at home, but the doctor’s thing is fancier so you really can hear what’s going on.
Food cravings: I drank an entire case of seltzer in a really really obscenely short period of time. Like, really obscene. I can’t even say. I also had this amazing raw food bowl thing at this juice bar place in Raleigh. It was TOO expensive, like I can’t be there all the time, but it was SO delicious, and now I want another one. But there is no way I can routinely spend that much on lunch.
Food aversions: Hm. I don’t think so, I mean I’m still not able to eat a ton, but nothing is making me want to just fall out when I smell it.
Symptoms: There’s just a lot going on toward the end. I am going to the bathroom like crazy, and moving slower. I’m really sad because I think yesterday was the last class I’m going to teach, like I feel like it’s time, but it makes me sad, because even though I’m still moving, I feel like I’m moving underwater.
Looking forward to: Shoot. Now that I’ve talked about this damned raw food bowl, I’m kind of thinking of getting one. And now, I want one. Blah budgetary constraints! But if I WAS getting one, I’d really be looking forward to that, later on today…
