Baby stats: Baby is the size of an apple, or a Swiss Army Knife. Baby can now hiccup.
Symptoms: Feeling ‘fuller’ in my uterus, not sure if that is actually a symptom.
Total weight gain: Unsure! My parents scales have finally died, so I don’t know what my current weight is. Will be purchasing a new one over the next couple of days so that I can get back on to tracking my weight.
Maternity clothes: Just the jeans.
Stretch marks? Still no new ones.
Workouts: Absolutely nothing in the last two weeks. And I’m feeling it too.
Diet: Complete shite. But, back on track this week. I’ll be doing the shopping and cooking so will be able to control what I eat more which is great!
Food cravings: Not really craving anything at the moment, but if I had to pick something then I’d say that I’m wanting more vegetables in my diet.
Gender: Unknown yet, but thinking/hoping boy.
Labor signs: Um, no….
Belly button in or out? In. My belly button never popped with my last full-term pregnancy, so I’m guessing it won’t this time round either.
Happy or moody most of the time: My mother passed away a couple of weeks ago, which has thrown me back on the emotional roller coaster. I just happened to be back home for a quick break so am extremely grateful that I was here when she passed. Because of her passing, we have had many, many people stop by my parents house to drop off baked goods. Mostly cakes and biscuits. Not to sound ungrateful, but it has been all I’ve been eating!! And my Aunties have been cooking my father, brothers and I dinner, but it has been all high fat foods (think Seafood Chowders, Fish & Chips, Lasagnes, pizzas etc), which again, extremely grateful for the help, but I really just want to eat a salad now! But, the lack of exercise and the intake of crappy food is also taking a toll on me emotionally.
I’m looking forward to getting back into some sort of routine and cooking more nutritious food to help heal myself, both mentally and physically. As always, here is to a better week ahead.
