Weeks: 30…10 weeks to go!!!
Baby size: Brie en Brioche. I don’t think that’s fair that my pregnancy app tells me my baby is the size of Brie, considering I can’t eat it. But she is supposedly around 17 inches long and around 3.5 pounds. Sometimes I doubt that considering I was around that length (or maybe shorter) when I was born, but she’s delivering hammer kicks to my bladder, so who knows.
Aversions: Mexican and seafood.
Cravings: Pop-Tarts. Cherry Pop-Tarts.
Symptoms: A little insomnia and some headaches this past week, but other than that, it’s been a good week! Embarrassingly, some gas too. Now that I teach in a closed room with a door, it has become a lot harder for me. There is an art to quiet crop dusting, and I plan to master it.
Weight gain: 0.0 pounds from last week. That’s not exactly honest. Saturday to Saturday, I somehow gained no weight, but if you went from Saturday to Sunday morning, I gained a pound. It’s the Pop-Tarts.
Maternity clothes: My jeans purchased from H&M fit!! Thank all that is good in the world right now. And they couldn’t have come sooner since crisp weather is right around the corner…not to mention the fact that I can wear jeans with a school shirt on Friday’s. I will be taking full advantage of this.
Looking forward to: Over Labor Day weekend, Tay and I purchased a new mattress (finally!!). Ours was ancient and it was so firm. I’m usually a stomach sleeper, but that ended months ago, and I’ve been forced to sleep on my side. Back sleeping is a no go–get a crazy sharp pain that runs down my lower back and legs, and since I have broad shoulders, side sleeping isn’t comfortable either. The new mattress comes with a plush topper and should be arriving Monday or Tuesday!! Sweet dreams, here I come.
