I promised myself I would upate my blog too and not just FB/social media and I totally failed these last couple of weeks sooooo you get one massive update! YAY!
Boy or girl: Team Green
Currently craving: Nothing really, I feel like I’ve reached the point where I get full really quickly. I don’t even feel like I ever get hungry!
Currently Avoiding: Tomato sauce. I love it so much but I realized it triggers my heartbutn. My dad made me some ziti and extra sauce to go with it so we ate that for leftovers one night and then had meatball subs the next night and the heartburn lasted a good 24+ hours. WAH!
Weight: I don’t typically weigh myself but I did weigh myself today out of curiosity and I basically gained all the weight I lost right before I got pregnant (about 18lbs). I still have 5 weeks to go so I’m not thrilled with that but I’m also not too upset. I feel confident I will lose a good amount directly after delivery AND I’m not concerned about gaining much more.
Belly button status: In. Forever a crater.
Sleep grade: It’s gotten much better recently, despite the fact that I’ve only been to my chiropractor once in the last four weeks! I’m pretty happy about that because it got pretty bad for a little bit.
Recent Crazy Dream: I can’t think of any. I’m still waiting for another dream about what this little baby is! Maybe tonight will be the night?
Evidence of pregnancy brain: I can’t think of anything right now but I promise it’s still there!
Symptoms?: The heartburn/acid reflux has been UNREAL. For the second time I woke up choking because of the acid reflux and it’s such a scary feeling. I have some Alkalime on the way so that should make it better but in the mean time I’m avoiding acidic foods especially tomato sauce.
Health/Appointments: Things are getting REAL! My last appointment I sat down with my midwife and we finalized everything I needed and now I just need to order everything the main thing being my BIRTHING TUB! I’m so excited for this homebirth water birth!
Movement: Baby moves a TON a night it’s so fun to see. I finally captured some video but I swear for the most part every time I try to get a video baby stops. So I stop the video, and baby starts again. These kids are all the same!
Names: We still haven’t talked much about it but I certainly have some favorites. If only the two middle names I’m thinking about weren’t vowels. Right now we’ve got some pretty unfortunate words spelled out of potential initals like LEG and GAG!
Any baby related purchases? My BFF, my mom and my sister threw me a shower and totally made my day! I need to share more about the actual event (You can see it in my Instagram Stories under “Baby #5) but my some of my main items were taken care of like my Moses Basket, SnuggleMe Organic and baby carrier. The last thing on the list is my Birth Photographer! WOOT WOOT!
It’s wild to me that I’m due NEXT MONTH! I’m getting anxious to get all the things done and still have a pretty long list of things I would like to complete before the baby comes. The MAIN thing we wanted to do was switch the rooms and paint the room that is now the kid room and that’s done!
Next things on our list:
- Purge the toys in the living room
- Finish the smaller room where baby will be sleeping (organize, purge)
- Hang my oil shelves
- Install car seat (should be easy peasy)
Till next week!
