Gluten Free Bumpdate | Week 29
How far along? 29 week / 30 when this posts.
Total weight gain: I was weighed at my doctors appointment, and I was up 5 lbs in 5 weeks (I am supposed to be gaining 1 lbs per week, so achievement unlocked!)
Maternity clothes? Yes. One thing that came up as it got bitterly cold in NYC this week was that I don't have a super warm jacket. My pre-pregnancy super warm coat still somehow zips over my bump; hoping it will continue for the next few weeks. I do have a maternity winter coat from my sister as well, but it doesn't stand up against -10 and snowing. The leggings I am wearing in the above photo are not and I purchased with the intention of wearing post-baby. What I'm saying is excuse the muffin top.
Stretch marks? Still none!
Sleep: So horrible! I'm not sure if it's jet lagged, being uncomfortable, the incessant need to visit the loo, or a combination by I barely slept this week. Oh, and my flat stomach!
Best moment this week: My birthday! I'm not really into birthdays, and I actually did my 3 hour glucose test on my birthday (more on that in a bit), but I was so spoiled by my husband and got to enjoy such a lovely weekend with him that I'd have to say it was the highlight.
Miss anything? See: sleep.
Movement: Lots! He rolls around a lot. The hard kicks/punches are decreasing and the rolly polly is picking up. I suppose he is getting too big to wind up very well :)
Food cravings: Another boring week of no food cravings.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My 3 hour glucose test! I failed the one hour screen for gestational diabetes (just barely, and most doctors probably would have passed me). If you have never been subjected to this before here is how it goes: you fast for at least 8 hours (I did 12+) so they can get your fasting blood sugar level. You then drink this glucose drink which has 100g of glucose (sugar), and thy draw blood one an hour for three hours to see your levels over time. Now, I have a sugar tooth, but I don't actually have that much sugar. Like a bad day would be 1/4 the amount as that drink. I was so incredibly ill from it for the majority of the day. Hopefully my results come back and I don't have GD!
Gender: Boy still.
Labor signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Insomnia, acid reflux, sore back/sciatica, and what I think what I originally thought was hormonal acne on my chin (which I did have and had cleared up months ago with my new skin regime), it actually eczema. So applying a non-medicated moisturizer I use for eczema on my legs which I get every year, and it seems to have settled a bit in the last couple of days. Hopefully it just clears up!
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! Again, I can certainly be a bit cranky and had those moments this week as well, but overall my mood has been pretty stable.
What are you looking forward to? Getting things a bit more sorted and ready for Bricklet's arrival, holidays with family, and meeting Bricklet in 2-ish months!
