71 days until my due date. 71 days! Where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday I was updating you at the halfway point. But now, here we are, rounding out the 29th week, with a baby the size of a cabbage inside of me (!).
I thought I'd share another pregnancy update for those who are interested in Baby Sax.
Maternity clothes? Oh yes. My mother-in-law kindly bought me the Citizens of Humanity maternity jeans. I generally don't think designer jeans are worth it, but these are incredible. They don't go over your bump, which makes them so much more comfortable. I'm still wearing some of my regular loose tops, but mostly I've enjoyed giving in to maternity attire.
Sleep: Pretty well! I go to the bathroom anywhere from 1 to 4 times a night and sometimes wake up for a few hours. But, when I am sleeping, it's very deeply.
Best moment this week: My newest niece was born last weekend. Realizing our babies are going to be just a few months apart - and hopefully the best of friends - made me so happy. She's an angel!
Movement: Yes! My placenta is in the front so it took a while to feel our babe. But, alas, it's kicking and moving all the time now. It's the best feeling in the world.
Food cravings: Still a lot of the same as before - citrus and vinegar! Give me the limes.
Food Aversions: Again, a lot of the same as before - strong flavors like cumin and garlic, as well as greasy foods.
Gender: Still don't know :)
Labor Signs: Nope, nope.
Pregnancy Symptoms: I feel pretty normal right now - more leveled out hormonally. This bump is starting to get in the way of some activities. Which I don't mind at all!
Belly Button in or out? In!
What I miss: Sushi, margs and hot yoga. (Not all at the same time, though.)
What I am looking forward to: Meeting the baby, watching Chris connect with it annnnd finding out the gender. And everything!
Upcoming appointments/events: I'm just doing typical check-ins now! I did the glucose test last week, though.
Milestones: Strangers just started asking me when I'm due and I love it. It makes me feel really special.
