How far along: 30 weeks - 10 weeks from EDD, 6 weeks(!) from stitch removal, and 2 weeks from even greater viability.
Total weight gain: Within 10 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight.
Maternity clothes: I got to wear something other than yoga pants this week! The lovely moms from the mom-to-mom breastfeeding group I helped facilitate prior to bed rest threw me a sprinkle this week. I got to wear a maternity dress I bought months ago, blow dried & flat ironed my hair for the first time since January, and put on my going out makeup. It felt so nice to feel normal.
Sleep: I can't get enough. The baby starts its calisthenics at about 1am every day. I'm usually up, thanks to pregnancy insomnia. I nap a lot during the day.
Miss anything: Social interaction, though the sprinkle helped a lot.
Movement: So much movement! The nightly exercise includes rolls, kicks, and punches. Sometimes I feel like the baby's going to break through my pelvic floor!
Food cravings: guacamole, chocolate, grilled cheese, and funnel cake.
Anything making you queasy or sick: certain smells. I'm not sure of which ones until I smell them.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, I love my big belly.
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks continue, but usually go away if I empty my bladder or drink water. Hoping not to see labor signs for another 6+ weeks.
Belly button in or out: Still in. I don't think it's going to pop.
Wedding rings on or off: On and they are kind of loose.
Happy or moody most of the time: Very moody. Regular pregnancy hormones + extra progesterone + dealing with bed rest = moody.
Looking forward to: 32 weeks, seeing the baby at my perinatologist appointment this week, getting baby stuff, stitch removal!
