How far along: 27 - THREE MONTHS TO GO!
Maternity clothes: Yes
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep is good, but I've reached the point where I'm getting up at least 2-3 times a night to pee
Best moment of the week: Beach getaway! It was exactly what I needed!
Worst moment of the week: Passing out at the nail salon during a manicure! Yep...I went from feeling a little nauseated, to hot, to not well at all to "ummm, I think I'm gonna pass out". Everyone at the nail salon was very concerned. They sat me down, gave me water and a cool cloth to wipe the crazy amount of sweat suddenly dripping down my arms. After about 10 minutes I felt better and yep, you guessed it, I finished my manicure. I called my husband Phil, and he took me to lunch before I felt safe enough to drive home. Totally random and scary as hell but baby and I are doing great now.
Running/Workouts: Still running...somehow. Still have really good days and not so good days. LOVING my new "Running for two" shirt though!
Missing anything: No
Movement: Yes, I seem to feel her a lot at work throughout the day. I love every single movement I feel
Cravings: Watermelon and salads. Sadly nausea/morning sickness decided to rear it's ugly head again this week
Energy level: Good but very tired at the end of each day
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Looking forward to: Mother's day next weekend
Something surprising about being pregnant: While I still have three months to go, and I'm actually already sad at the thought of not being pregnant, there is no denying that carrying a baby is rough on the body. At times, it's down right uncomfortable. Running takes its toll on my bladder. Eating is hard because I get so full very quick and still have so many aversions. Working 12 hours as a labor and delivery nurse is hard for anyone, but yeah, it's getting a little tougher each week. I literally pee about 20 times a day (kept count one day at work!). While all these things can be annoying, I must say I'm enjoying feeling theses changes as it means I have a wee little one growing bigger and bigger inside me by the day. The minor discomforts serve as a daily reminder of that!
New running for two shirt!
