Belly button in or out: Still in, sort of
Sleep: Good, I sometimes get up once, sometimes not
Food (non) cravings: Gewürzspekulatius (spiced shortcrust biscuit)
  • Out of breath easily when walking stairs

Miss anything: Here’s what I don’t miss:

  • getting terrible PMS every month
  • having my period for 7+ days
  • to have to pull my belly in after each meal so that it still looks flat

Looking forward to: My Christmas vacation and sleeping in daily then.
(Best) happenings this week:

  • Looked at hospital #4. We both liked it but read about this huge scandal which happened last year concerning the pediatric clinic, so now I’m a bit confused.
  • Went to the musical “Dirty Dancing”. It was made very cute but doesn’t come close to Phantom of the Opera or Grease
  • Made an appointment with the doctor who will be delivering my child (if I decide for to deliver at hospital #3)
  • Hearing that my boyfriends’ best friend got engaged and he’ll be the best man

Movement: Daily
Gender: Baby Boy
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I love seeing all the Christmas lights outside when riding/walking through the city and listening to Christmas music whilst driving my boyfriend nuts.
Sports: At the moment I go on Friday and Sunday. My heart rate is a bit wacky, it’s up to 160 after I change clothes but goes down very fast. Not sure if it’s just not working correctly or if that’s another pregnancy symptom. Also started a DVD called “fit during pregnancy” today. No pain, no sweat – never had such a relaxing sport session :) It felt good though, exercises for the pelvic floor, legs, arms, it was good.

Belly button in or out: Well, it’s kind of even :) Still “in” though.

  • I’ve had some leg cramps in the night twice this week.

Stretch marks: No please
Miss anything: Nope, I’m feeling quite good.
Looking forward to: My winter vacation in three weeks!
(Best) happenings this week:

  1. Knowing that our baby can survive in the outside world!
  2. Registered for a prenatal class
  3. Looked at hospital #3. We both really liked it. Next week we’re looking at one last hospital.
  4. Got a hair cut after 10 months. Yay! (But forgot my wallet to pay for it…forgetting things might be another symptom I have)

Movement: Daily. I love knowing that I’m not alone.
Gender: Baby Boy <3
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
Sports: Still trying to go twice a week, sometimes I only manage once due to a busy schedule. I go for a 30 minute walk though every lunch and walk a bunch of stairs. On Friday I went on the Crosstrainer for 30 minus (so proud I lasted 30 minutes, not because of lack of endurance but because it’s just soo boring) and then I made my strength endurance with a stretching cool down. I enjoy taking my time at the gym. The gym pants are getting tighter though, I guess I might have to buy a bigger size later on. But as long as my clothes don’t feel totally uncomfortable I’ll keep on wearing them.
