How far along: 26 weeks 6 days How much do I weigh: 55,7 kg (+ 6,9 kg) Belly size: At times I gain 1 kg a week. Unbelievable how rapid weight gain can go! Belly button in or out: In Sleep: Sometimes I sleep until the alarm goes off, sometimes I get up once, sometimes I can’t get to sleep too good anymore after I got up once. The whole program, but I can’t complain. Food (non) cravings: Nothing special Symptoms: None actually Maternity clothes: Pants and some tops Stretch marks: None, and no linea nigra Miss anything: I missed drinking alcohol at the company’s Christmas Party 🙂 It started at 3pm yet I survived until about 10pm without it. I guess I was high from all the sugar in the non-alcoholic punch. But of course it’s always nice to chat with the co-workers, especially in a company where everybody gets along quite well with each other. Looking forward to: Enjoying my Christmas Vacation Best happenings this week:
Going to the OB and hearing that everything is just fine with the baby
I made a carbohydrate loading test for diabetes and all is good, I don’t have pregnancy diabetes
I had a CTG (cardiotocograph) done, baby’s heartbeat is jut fine and I don’t have contractions
My cervix is 4,3cm long – all fine, my ph-value is fine too
My iron value is fine
Baby is lying with his head down (which can always change of course, let’s hope he’s lazy)
Baby boy weighs around 980g
My blood pressure was a bit low
Movement: Daily <3, mainly he's kicking/boxing/whatever on my right side. My placenta is on the front wall left so maybe that's the reason - he knows the food etc. is coming from the left side so he's scared to kick against it 🙂 While having a french class in the evening last Monday he kicked me in such a weird place I almost jumped out of my seat and screamed out Jesus!
Gender: Baby Boy Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and never moody 😉 Sports: Not so much this week, too busy
How far along: 17 weeks 6 days (starting my 19th week tomorrow) How much do I weigh: 50,4 kg (+1,6 kg) (ok, I ate lunch every day last week and last night we went out and I ate a huge burger with french fries and a side salad) Belly size: I think it’s huge, especially when I don’t hold in my stomach.
Belly button in or out: In Sleep: Been good!! Food (non) cravings: Nothing special. Healthy food cravings, but also sweets. Symptoms: Cramps and some pain in my belly Maternity clothes: Always! Stretch marks: None yet, I guess Miss anything: For breakfast on the weekends I miss not being able to eat salami sticks from our whole food store. Looking forward to: The next ultrasound in 4 days. Also, in two days it’s October 21, 2014 which means my due date is in exactly 5 months! Best happenings this week:
I officially have a midwife and I’m going to meet her in five days. I’d like her for my after-care so she can help me breastfeeding and give me tips. On the phone she sounds very nice and friendly, she’s experienced, she just went on a retraining and she lives right around the corner.
One of my co-workers wants to get rid of a baby changing table so we’re getting that (it’s a dresser as well) from him for 35 EURO. Now pretty much the only thing we need to spend more money on is the stroller.
A female colleague of mine looked at my belly this week and said that now you can really see I’m pregnant. She looked at me and asked “are you having a boy?” and I answered we don’t know 100%, but why does she ask if we’re having a boy? She answered that my skin is so nice and my face looks so good and that that’s a sign that I’m having a boy. If I’d be having a girl I’d have more pimples. She said she’s normally right about her guesses so we’ll see.
I chatted with my mom on the phone, my parents are on vacation, we only e-mail each other so it was nice chatting with her again. Hi Mom and Dad 🙂
I bought two “maternity” long sleeves yesterday. But, they are non-maternity, they are just regular tops, the one is a bit wider around the belly and the size S was too big so I had to buy XS, which made me feel good 🙂
Movement: Well, I don’t feel anything on the outside, I sometimes feel something in my belly but it’s hard to say if that’s really the baby or just my dinner moving it’s way down… Gender: We will know in four days 🙂 Still thinking it’s a boy! Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but also worrying about the future at times. Sports: Nope 🙁 Shame on me. The last time I’ve been to the gym was a month ago. I’m planning *cough* on going *cough* today though.
