Total Weight Gain/Loss: Up 17 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight as of 6/6
Maternity clothes: All day, every day. Only have two shirts that don't show the stretchy part of my maternity pants. I can't seem to find shirts that are long enough!
Stretch marks: Keegan says I have a few more. I'll have to take his word since I can't see the underside of my belly.
Sleep: Another week of good and bad nights.
Best moment last week: We got a surprise 3D/4D ultrasound at our OB appointment! Seeing Breadcrumb's little button nose made me cry during the entire ultrasound.
Movement: I've been feeling less jabs from kicks and punches and more rolls across my belly. Whenever he's moving, it shakes my entire belly and I've also started feeling hiccups! He's head down, so I feel them right along my pubic bone which is....interesting to say the least. I can also feel hard areas of my belly when he's curled up on one side or the other which I'm thinking is a bum.
Food cravings: Water. I can't seem to get enough! I've also really been enjoying fresh fruit like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes and watermelon.
Gender: Our little man!
Labor signs: I've been feeling a lot of pressure "down low" lately which was confirmed when my OB said that he's for sure head down.
Belly button? Still shallow. Hasn't changed much recently.
What I miss: A nice cold Coke sounds so good in this heat!
What I am looking forward to: Continuing our childbirth classes and our appointment on 6/23. We also have a baby shower thrown by some of Keegan's co-workers the last weekend of June.
Baby Buys: Found two pairs of pants in the WalMart clearance section for $1 each, and started buying supplies for our hospital bag.
Our appointment on 6/6 was pretty good. Like I stated above, we got a surprise 3D/4D ultrasound which was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. We also got a CD of the entire ultrasound and close to 10 pictures.
We also spoke in length about my gestational diabetes which I'll do a more in depth post about soon. I am officially considered high risk, but the big thing that I took away from our conversation is that at the current time, induction is not on the table. Dr. L said it could be if we wanted to, but we'd rather let Breadcrumb choose when he wants to come as long as both he and I continue to look healthy.
As of right now, I will continue having appointments every two weeks like any patient in their third trimester, but I'll have ultrasounds at almost every appointment to track his size. Dr. L said that if we get to 36/37/38 weeks and we realize he's a 10 pound baby, then we'll talk about induction and potentially a c-section. The rest of the pregnancy will really be a wait and see game and however Breadcrumb comes into this world will depend on his size. We do know that ultrasound measurements are not perfectly accurate, so if induction / c-section is brought up, Keegan and I will have a lengthy discussion and decide what's best for us and our son.
